Russian KGB and Nazi in Polish Parliament
This photo is absolutely real. The person on photo is the deputy of the Polish Sejm (national parliament) from populist Self-Defense (Samoobrona) party Mr. Mateusz Piskorski. He is known as editor-in-chief of nazi-rasist magazine “Odala”, as leader of Polish skinhead’s movement and radical anti-semite who has been elected in parliament in 2005.
In “Odala” Mateusz Piskorski sang the praises of the “Aryan Race”, Hitler, SS, Gestapo with their struggle against “world Jewish plot” and ideologies “foreign to our race, like Christianity, Liberalism, and Marxism” publishing interviews with Holocaust deniers. Except for that, he and the leader of parliamentary fraction of populist Self-Defense party Andrzej Lepper are the big fans of Russian president Vladimir Putin and of Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenko.
Last five years skinhead Mateusz Piskorsky some times visited Russia where he has old friends among Russian Nazis. Many of them are connected with former KGB which has now renamed in “Federal Security Service of Russia” (FSB in Russian).
Vladimir Putin and Russian Ministry for Foreign Affairs have accepted the special political program concerning Eastern Europe. So, in 2005 agent of FSB and well known Russian Nazi Alexei Kochetkov has organized the official visit of his friend Mateusz Piskorski to small, but very criminal “state” Transdniestria (rebel part of Moldova) with the purpose of political support of local dictatorship. Heads of Transdniestria are searched by the Interpol for the illegal traffic in arms and weapons, the murders, money-laundering, terrorism, genocide and drug traffic. But they have the Russian citizenship personally and use Russian support in their policy. Actually FSB supervises a situation in this rebel region and colleagues of Vladimir Putin receive a lot of money from Transdniestrian criminal business.
During his visit to Transdniestria the deputy of Polish parliament Mateusz Piskorski on behalf of Poland, on behalf of Self-Defense party and its leader Andrzej Lepper confirm “legality and correctness” of not free and completely forged parliamentary elections in this rebel region. After that Russia has started to provide nonofficial financial support of Piskorski’s and Lepper’s activity. So, now Self-Defense party (one of the most influential Polish political parties) is financed by Russians through the Polish Nazi and known agents of FSB-KGB.
Deputies of Polish parliament receive some of Russian money, as fees for the participation in election monitoring in the countries of former Soviet Union (Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenko, dictator of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov, former Ukraine Prime Minister Victor Yanukovich and others) in their struggle against the democratic oppositions during the elections.. In 2005 Mateusz Piskorski has been registered, as the observer from CIS Election Monitoring Organization (CIS EMO) on elections of Transdniestrian parliament. This Russian nongovernmental organization has been created by agent of FSB Alexei Kochetkov under direction of FSB. CIS EMO purpose consists in public support of the proRussian state leaders.
Now Russian KGB-Nazi Alexei Kochetkov, racist Polish deputy Mateusz Piskorski and another members of Self-Defense party are registered on elections of the Ukrainian Parliament, as the observer from CIS EMO. According to Ukrainian mass-media, FSB (through CIS EMO) has already transferred money to Andrzej Lepper and soon Mateusz Piskorski will arrive to Ukraine with his colleagues from Polish parliament. Their purpose consists in support of the proRussian political parties on Ukrainian elections.
In more detail about relations of Polish parliament, Self-Defense party, the Polish Nazi and Russian KGB look in clause published in Ukrainian magazine "Tribuna", informational agency “Maidan”, Polish newspaper “Gazeta Wyborcza”, “Searchlight” and others media.

Why does no one tell the Jews to let go of what happened 50 years ago? I believe that the Holocaust did happened. I also believe it was and is a terrible stain on the history of our planet and of a so called civilized people. Its okay to remake the Diary of Anne Frank a hundred times. But make a movie about slavery or Malcolm X and everyone is telling blacks to shut up and sit down.
In high school I went to the Holocaust museum here in Dallas twice. It was a great and eye opening experience. I enjoy knowledge for the sake of knowledge and this taught me alot. Its something everyone should go see and experience. However, I want to know if blacks, who were and still are thought of as lower human beings, are supposed to let go of 400 years of oppression and subjugation are supposed to let go then why not the Jews? For that matter I'll pull the American Indians and the Japanese that were interned during world war 2 under the bus with them. Oh, and I'll remind some of my white tax payers. We gave the Japanese alot of money a few years back for their five years in prison.
Inconclusion, the white man has been one evil son of a bitch throughout history. But,I'm willing to forgive the "Man". And you know who you are. I just want equal pay for a full day of surfing the internet. I just want my forty acres and my "white prize". I just want to know why we all just can't get along?
Life really is like a hurricane....
Saw this in someones confession and it brought back so many memories. All I can say is those truly were the days. I wanted to go to Duckburg and kick it with the boys. Always wanted to fly on the Sea Duck and kick Don Karnage's butt. I know its silly but I loved those cartoons.
Now to business. For you inquiring minds.
The question: Ducktails, Tailspin or Darkwing Duck... In the top ten of all-time cartoons?
Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes - it's a duck blur
You might solve a mystery or rewrite history
Duck Tales, Oo-oo
Tales of derring-do, bad and good luck tales, oo-oo
D-d-d-danger, watch behind you - there's a stranger out to find you
What to do? Just grab onto some Duck Tales, oo-oo!
Not pony tails or cotton tails but Duck Tales, oo-oo!
When it seems they're headed for the final curtain
Bold deduction never fails, that's for certain
The worst of messes become successes!
Duck Tales, Oo-oo
Tales of derring-do, bad and good luck tales, oo-oo
Not pony tails or cotton tails but Duck Tales, oo-oo! Current Mood: curious

Toast. Butter side up or down?
|Friday, March 11th, 2005|
In Bush 2's first term Senatorial democrats were able to block a handful of judicial nominees that they considered to be extremely radical using filibusters. Republicans cried foul. They complained that filibusters have never been used to block judicial nominees in the history of the country. But the Republicans tried to filibuster a Clinton nominee, though they were unsuccessful. Also, Republicans have historically used other parliamentary tactics like using control of committees to keep nominees from getting an up or down vote on the Senate floor. Now Republicans are exploring the option of taking away the Democrat's right to filibuster in order to ram their nominees through.
Would the Republicans be justified to take this step to alter the rules of the Senate?
If they do, would the Democrats be justified in using all of the techniques at their disposal to shut down the Senate, or at least to slow it down?
If these steps are taken will they have an effect on the mid term elections?
I say yes, yes, and no.

Seeing as no else is using this forum to post anything other than homework, I'm going to continue to monopolize the space by posting my own topics...
America's population is less than 1/20 of global population. Yet we consume around 1/4 of the worlds fossil fuels (perhaps a bit less with the chinese economic boom). In light of increasing fuel costs, the finite supply of such fuels, acid rain, mercury pollution, heavy metal pollution, global warming and other adverse effects of excess fuel consumption, is it morally acceptable for individual Americans to consume resources at a rate commesurate with other individuals in this country? Is it acceptable for individuals in India or Somalia to consume like Americans?
I think not.

Okay, new thought. What if national elections were more like refferenda? In the current system people are often forced to go with the party or candidate that supports one issue of concern. The classic example is abortion. Many people that have no love for the anti-populist leanings of the Republican party are forced to vote for them because they are strongly anti-abortion.
What if we could vote directly for cabinet members. You could vote for an anti-abortion secretary of health and human services, and a pro-environment secretary of the interior. You could be pro-labor and pro-war in your vote for the executive branch. Perhaps to avoid conflict, all foreign policy issues, from trade to war, would have to be consolidated in one position.
It seems like this system would help to avoid the partisanship that permeates American politics.
Why do so many Americans define themselves as centrists? I can understand the desire to keep yourself unaffiliated to any party, but you have to have some kind of political views.
Why is it that liberals always take offense at being called liberals, and neoconservatives can't stand being called neoconservatives? Even Bush feels that he must call himself a compassionate conservative (which doesn't really have a definition), even though we all know he is ultra conservative.

As opposed to the U.S., the United Nations has declared the situation in Darfur *not* an act of genocide. Do you think it is? If not, why not? If so, do you think the UN is washing it's hands of Darfur, since acknowledging the conflict is genocide would make the UN legally obligated to take action?

This one's pretty easy... animal rights.
Some people in England are now campaigning to create new laws protecting scientists and other researchers from harassment. According to the campaigners, the animal rights' extremists have been causing so much economic damage that laws need to be passed so those researching diseases like AIDS and cancer can work peacefully. What do you think?

A debate question regarding the release of Guantanamo Four- what do you all think of "solitary confinement"? Is it ethical to keep a person, who may be innocent, in social isolation especially if they'll be questioned later on? It's been proven that such conditions can cause mental breakdowns.
Recently, a man convicted of killing 8 young women has asked the state to speed up his execution. According to the ACLU, allowing Micheal Ross of Conneticut to die sooner than expected would be "assisted suicide", therefore it should not be allowed.
What do you all think? Is it hypocritical of the state to allow this man to die quicker because he's depressed and tired of Death Row, especially since "assisted suicide" is illegal?

Losers in a Greater Sense
Behavior that is not justifiable by any grounds but goes to show extreme lack of character.
Critics on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, only two of whom — Democrats John Kerry of Massachusetts and Barbara Boxer of California — voted against Condoleezza Rice's confirmation.
Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, who lost the November presidential election to Bush, complained that Rice's testimony merely "predicts more of the same" while Barbara Boxer of California called it "a continuing assault on reality."
"Regrettably, I did not see in Dr. Rice's testimony any acknowledgment of the need to change course or of a new vision for America's role in the world," Kerry said. (THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION SUGGEST THAT IS THE CASE AND SHOULD BE THE CASE, FEW CARE WHAT YOU THINK, JOHN)
"I do think she has the president's ear," said Senator Joseph Biden of Delaware, the panel's ranking minority member. "And I hope she's willing to take on some of the neoconservative notions in this administration." (NEOCONSERVATIVES? GET A GRIP JOE, YOU SPITEFUL, HATEFUL MAN)
Biden added that it was worthless to listen to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on this subject because "he doesn't know what in the hell he's talking about on this." (JOE, YOU ARE FROM DELWARE AND IN DUPONT'S POCKET, NO ONE CARES, YOUR GUY LOST, GET SOME THERAPY AND AT LEAST BE RESPECTFUL, I KNOW THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU, SORRY)
"I feel, and I know not everyone agrees with me," Boxer said, "that this war and all of these horrific deaths and the wounded and all of that, is a direct result of not leveling with the American people." (SHE IS FROM CALIFORNIA, SO NOT BEING FROM THE REAL WORLD, WE WILL CUT HER SOME SLACK - THIS TIME. WHAT ABOUT SISTER SOLIDARITY WOMAN?)
Underscoring the Democrats' dissatisfaction, Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia (FORMER KKK MEMBER), an outspoken critic of the decision to go to war, announced late in the day that he would not allow the Senate to approve Rice without a few days of consideration of her lengthy testimony. (HE's NOT READY FOR A BLACK WOMAN, BUT THAT'S OK, HE'LL BE DEAD SOON)
White House chief of staff Andrew Card said Thursday the Democrats' decision to delay her confirmation smacked of "petty politics." (YOU THINK, ANDY?)

Investing Our Taxes?
Anybody got any opinions on the Bush plan to allow people to invest a portion of their federal income taxes in stock in order to have a retirement fund? I am coming to the opinion that, if this is meant to replace social security, that it is not a very practical solution. Social security was designed to help the poor, while this program appears targeted to help the rich and highly educated. After all, if the amount of money you invest is a certain percentage of your taxes, the people who will get to invest the most are the people paying more income taxes...the rich.
Secondly, those folk didn't reach the upper-classes by accident. They had the education and business knowledge to know how to use their money effectively and where to invest (or their parents did). So, they have the know-how needed to take advantage of a system which offers them more money to invest with. Investing is a risky business. You have to be familiar with the ratings of particular businesses, and how to diversify. How are blue-collar workers going to know where to invest smartly, without screwing themselves over and losing the money they need for retirement?
And really, which is the lesser of two evils? A social security program which could run out when the baby boomers need it (not to mention later generations), or a program where one's nest egg depends upon using taxes in the ever-fluctuating stock market in an economy where many people (esp. the lower to middle classes) don't know how to invest?
It seems to me like the people who have the knowledge to take advantage of this program could benefit greatly from it, espeically if they are already wealthy. But the people who really need help with funding their old age, and their families, won't have the knowledge to take advantage of it, plus they won't any longer have social security. So, you potentially have a greater number of poor people either working all the way through old age, to the end of their life, or you increase the poverty level in America.
That's my take on the info I've learned so far, but if I am misunderstanding something here, or have misinterpreted something, feel free to correct me. I really want to figure out whether or not this program will benefit America as a whole.
