Campaign Truth Project 

The Truth Laid Bear creator, N.Z., has created a new internet project called "Campaign Truth".

Political bloggers are all welcome to participate.

N.Z. states:
The intent of Campaign Truth is to provide a portal where bloggers and other interested folk can gather links to information which sheds light on where the candidates stand on issues in the 2004 Presidential Campaign. By harnessing the collaborative power of bloggers that has been proven by sites such as The Command Post and by the influence of the blogosphere itself, Campaign Truth will provide a place where voters can come to get past the story-of-the-moment in the media, and dig deep into candidates' true positions on the issues that matter to them most.
There are pages set up for:


I'll be participating and I hope you will, too.

Amaranth Bio, in the Boston suburb of Watertown, Ma was the site of a terrorist attack on Tuesday, Reuters reports. Police are searching for a 29 year old man who tried to cause a gas explosion in the same building a year prior.

These terrorists attack us because they fear what we stand for- They hate America's pursuit of science in a secular nation, and they fear the freedom that it brings to the world.

I am sure the President will act swiftly to bring attention to the nation that trained and harbored this terrorist, and the cultural conditions of hopelessness and despair that tempt evil doers to do us harm. I suspect that Dick Cheney, tonight, will condemn the extremists who create a hospitable climate to such acts against American Institutions. Lastly, I look forward to a widespread condemnation of those who share the views of these extremists by all who share his religion and world view.

The Numbers Don't Lie, Mr. President: You Are An Economic Disaster 

Quoted from SoonerThought:

Here are the numbers, a sober and powerful counter-argument to any declaration that the recession is long over and good times are back for everyone.

Poverty is up in the United States for the third consecutive year, the Census Bureau says, with 40 million people now afflicted. Median household income is stagnant at a little more than $43,000 a year. That, after three years of decline and still lower than it was in 1999. And the number of Americans without medical insurance is up, too, as it has been each year since 2001, to 45 million.

Dreary numbers under any circumstances. Only now they come close to the height of the presidential campaign. They carry a significance that should rival what President Bush had to say the same day of the Census Bureau report, that he miscalculated what Iraq would be like after a U.S.-led invasion.

"Because we acted, our economy since last summer has grown at a rate as fast as any in nearly 20 years," Mr. Bush said Thursday. "Since last August, we've added approximately 1.5 million new jobs."

What he didn't say, of course, is that there are fewer jobs, and fewer people working, now than when he took office.
