No worming out of this: Town shuts down teen's nightcrawler sales
By Stephanie Reitz, Associated Press Writers August 11, 2006
CROMWELL, Conn. --For the last three summers, 13-year-old Joey Cadieux has headed outside with his flashlight on rainy nights to collect nightcrawlers from his yard.
Purchased by fishermen and passing drivers, the wriggling worms brought him about $7 to $10 in a good month, just enough for bike trips to his favorite neighborhood pizza joint.
But when a town official recently objected to his stenciled black-and-white "nite crawlers" yard sign, Joey's business got the hook.
The move has set off a flurry of protests from residents of this suburban central Connecticut town, who have been calling and e-mailing officials to stick up for the budding entrepreneur.
Joey, who starts high school in a few weeks, is a quiet teen who is uncomfortable about the controversy, is running short on pizza money and just wants to sell his worms again.
"We end up using a lot of the worms for ourselves. It's honestly not a real thriving business," said his stepfather, August Reil, who received the town's cease-and-desist letter in late July. "I actually laughed when I opened it. I couldn't believe they were serious."
But they definitely are.
If Joey and his stepfather erect the sign again and revive the informal worm-selling enterprise, they could face penalties for violating town zoning rules..........

you tell me who the kook is

me for believing

it is wrong in every way shape and form 2,598 of our men and women have died in iraq, it is wrong $303,073,056,797 has been spent on iraq when (AT THE VERY LEAST) OUR united states citizens on the gulf coast still have NOT been thoroughly taken care of after katrina, it is wrong for me to be spyed on by our government WITHOUT A WARRANT, it is wrong for corporations such as halliburtan to profit (and when i say halliburton i am including the WHOLE good ol' white boy network) off of this unjust war (based on lies) in iraq

or the asswipe who said THIS:

Columnist Cal Thomas Says 'Taliban Democrats' To Blame for Lieberman Loss

By E&P Staff Published: August 11, 2006 10:00 PM ET
NEW YORK Is the normally midl-mannered syndicated columnist Cal Thomas venturing into Ann Coulter territory? In his latest column today, he declared that the recent primary defeat of Sen. Joe Lieberman in Connecticut "completes the capture of the Democratic Party by its Taliban wing."The Taliban Democrats, he added, "are willing to 'kill' one of their own, if he does not conform to the narrow and rigid agenda of the party's kook fringe.... "It will be difficult for any Democrat to seek consensus with any Republican without being targeted as an infidel worthy of electoral death. Our already-poisoned political dialogue has not only been made more toxic, but contagious. Taliban Democrats have effectively issued a political 'fatwa' that warns all Democrats not to deviate from their narrow line, or else face the end of their careers through a political jihad. Perhaps the few remaining rational Democrats should put on their burkas now and submit to the will of the party mullahs."

they're crazy

they're insane. they're certainly BIASED (and of course NOT supposed to be. i CAN be biased, i'm NOT a news reporter). i wonder when the last time was chuck asked king george where osama was. osama is probably with the killer of nicole simpson.

Headline News Anchor: ‘Might Some Argue That Lamont…Is The al Qaeda Candidate?

Today on CNN Headline News, anchor Chuck Roberts discussed the impact of the foiled British terror plot with Hotline senior editor John Mercurio. Roberts asked Mercurio, “How does this factor into the Lieberman/Lamont contest? And might some argue, as some have, that Lamont is the al Qaeda candidate?” Watch it:

NOW Celebrates Ned Lamont's Victory in Connecticut Democratic Primary

Statement of NOW President Kim Gandy

WASHINGTON - August 9 - I am proud to stand here today with Ned Lamont to celebrate this significant victory in Connecticut's Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
Back in May, when the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee became the first national PAC to endorse Ned Lamont, there was no bandwagon to jump on. In fact, many Beltway politicos thought we had lost our senses, or worse -- endorsing a relative unknown against a well-connected 18-year incumbent.
This challenger, however, spoke truth to power; and NOW PAC never shies away from a principled fight when women's rights are on the line.
In the wake of perhaps the most stunning political upset in decades, we could not be more pleased. Women's rights are being challenged in every arena, our access to emergency contraception is being blocked, and Roe v. Wade is hanging by a thread. That's why we applaud Ned Lamont -- a candidate who stands firmly and uncompromisingly for women's rights and reproductive justice.
Peace is a feminist issue and the Iraq war has been a key issue in this campaign, but it is not the only issue. Because of the actions of the Bush administration, the national economy is in a shambles, our civil rights are being eroded, and the nation's standing in the world community has been seriously compromised.
It is time for the elected members of Congress who have enabled such travesties to retire or be retired. We applaud the voters in Connecticut who sent a strong message with Ned Lamont's primary win. The status quo must be transformed, and the voters recognized in Ned Lamont a forceful advocate for change. ...........

frightening VERY much so

if this doesn't say it all, i don't know what else could: Report: Rove offered Bush's assistance in Lieberman campaign Karl Rove, a close advisor to the President, has expressed interest in assisting Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman in retaining his seat, despite a loss in the Democratic Primary last night, ABC News has reported.
Rove was, according to the report, acting on behalf of President Bush.
George Stephanopoulos, writing for the World Newser blog at ABC, wrote that a Lieberman aide had shared with the news agency a message from the White House: "The boss wants to help. Whatever we can do, we will do."
According to the report, The Lieberman campaign is assessing its options, including whether it is beneficial for a candidate attempting to appeal to independents and moderate Democrats in Connecticut to be publicly supported by the President.
Excerpts from the ABC
report follow:
The White House might help Lieberman by putting the kibosh on any move to replace the weak Republican candidate, Alan Schlesinger, with a stronger candidate............

what a soul-less ass

i don't think ANY of 'em have souls for THAT matter.

how dare this ass call ME (and anyone else who has the brain to know we were lied to in order to get us into iraq - as the stepping stone to the REST of the middle east it would appear) impatient. i am impatient because 2500 (plus) of our men and women died? died as a result of
the actions of a king and his court some would consider to be madmen/madwomen.

IMPATIENT??? our constitution, the constitution of the united states of america has not only been torn up but been spat upon by this administration. spying on it's own citizens WITHOUT warrants in order to 'capture' the ninja three stooges in florida? c'mon now. the health and well being of our citizens has been ignored. katrina and stem cell research for two (there are many more). the rich get richer while the working women and men strive to feed themselves, their families, heat their homes and fill their cars with gas. BUT the rich get richer. how DARE snow or ANY of the soul-less ones judge ME and the citizens of MY state for using not only our MINDS but our HEARTS AND SOULS as well. we made the RIGHT choice.

White House tears into Dems over Lieberman loss
RAW STORY Published: Wednesday August 9, 2006 White House press secretary Tony Snow today launched into a lengthy diatribe regarding the loss of Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) in yesterday's primary election--before stating the President has no official comment to make on the subject, RAW STORY has learned.
Snow, commenting from a middle school near President's ranch in Crawford, Texas, seemed to be attempting to use the loss to portray Democrats as weak on issues relating to national security.
A transcript of Snow's comments follow the video excerpt below: SNOW: As for the primary election in Connecticut last night -- I know there's a lot of concern and interest about that -- Democratic voters in Connecticut have made their choice, and they have chosen Ned Lamont over Senator Lieberman.
Just a couple of observations:
Key leaders in the National Democratic Party have made it clear -- no, let me back up -- this is a defining moment, in some ways, for the Democratic Party. I know a lot of people have tried to make this a referendum on the president. I would flip it. I think instead, it's a defining moment for the Democratic Party, whose national leaders now have made it clear that if you disagree with the extreme left in their party, they're going to come after you. And it is probably worth trying to trace through some of the implications of that position, because it is clearly going to be one of the central issues as we get ready for the election campaign this year, that is, the midterm elections.
First, let's think about Iraq. One of the positions is that we need to leave Iraq. We need to do it on a timetable, and we need to do it soon. It's worth walking through the consequences of that position................

i am sorry for your loss

Charlie Company Marine Killed In Fallujah
By JESSE HAMILTON Courant Staff Writer August 8 2006

The price Charlie Company is paying for its mission in the heart of Fallujah now has a name: Kurt E. Dechen. After months of close calls and Purple Hearts, the Plainville-based Marines lost one of their own in Iraq last week. The lance corporal from Vermont fell under insurgent gunfire.His body is in Dover, Del., now. That's where the military prepares its dead for the final trips to their hometowns. In this case, it's Springfield, Vt., where Dale and Richard Dechen wait in the netherworld between the knock last week on their front door and the homecoming of their son, Kurt.The big Marine was in the 4th Platoon of Charlie Company, one of the platoons living in an old school administration building in downtown Fallujah, where The Courant embedded with the Marines for more than a month. The Connecticut-based Marines - about 200 of them - are the only U.S. troops living inside the city that was once controlled by thousands. The days have swung dramatically between sun-baked boredom and the attacks of insurgents. Mortars. Rocket-propelled grenades. Roadside bomb ambushes. And gunfire.While much of the world has turned its eyes to the bloodbath of sectarian killings in Baghdad, Al Anbar Province - with its violent urban pairing of Fallujah and Ramadi - sends a relentless stream of U.S. troops to combat hospitals and to mortuary services. ............

Gingrich: There Is An ‘Insurgency’ in CT Which Says ‘Can’t We Come Home And Hide?’

This morning on Fox News, Newt Gingrich claimed there is a “legitimate insurgency in Connecticut, which needs to be met head on,” made up of people who say Iraq “is so hard, it is so frightening, it’s so painful, can’t we come home and hide?” Gingrich said that if the “insurgency” wins, “it will be the beginning of extraordinarily important period in American politics, and in American history.” Watch it:...........

da liebs said it WOULD be a disaster to iraq and us if we pull out now????????????

WOULD BE? wtf does he think it is NOW? over 2,500 of OUR men and women dead and countless thousands maimed and i'm NOT even counting the ones who are mentally maimed. damn. WOULD BE? there IS NO WOULD BE. the entire middle east is in the midst of a death spree. brutallity everywhere. the smell of death everywhere. i cannot even imagine.

and what precipated this? US WE DID IT. WE DID IT AND NOW there is NO WAY OUT. yes, the region was unstable and yes it would have remained unstable if we didn't go in there but we still had NO BUSINESS GOING THERE. NONE. when will the american people wake up and get rid of all of the evil ones in charge? i don't even think the democrats have stones any more. only so very few of them speak up.

tomorrow is the connecticut primary. i will (as always for EVERY election) be there when the polls open at 6:00 am. i will cast my vote for
ned lamont. we must bring our men and women home. we've ruined enough lives. both theirs AND ours.

it's too late liebs. too little too late.

Lieberman Explains Iraq Stance in Bid to Win Back Voters

Senator Joseph I. Lieberman made a last-ditch attempt this evening to explain his support for the war in Iraq and win back doubting voters in Connecticut before the state primary election on Tuesday.
Using his strongest language of the campaign in a speech that might well determine his political fate, Mr. Lieberman said that he still believed his vote to authorize the war in 2002 was correct, yet he now felt a “heavy responsibility” to end the war quickly. (
Text of Speech)
He said he wanted to withdraw American troops “as fast as anyone,” yet insisted that quitting Iraq now would be a “disaster” that could lead to further sectarian violence there.
“I want to get our troops home as fast as anyone, probably more than most, and as I have repeatedly said, I am against an open-ended commitment,” Mr. Lieberman said, according to a copy of remarks prepared for delivery. “But if we simply give up and pull out now, like my opponent wants to do, then it would be a disaster to Iraq and to us. We would run a high risk of allowing Iraq to become like Afghanistan when the
Taliban were in charge, and Al Qaeda had safe haven from which to strike us.”..........
