We're winning

Oil is cheap

In a 1998 interview, Osama bin Laden — the terrorist organizer of 9/11 who still roams free — listed as one of his many grievances against the U.S. that Americans “have stolen $36 trillion from Muslims” by purchasing oil from Persian Gulf countries at low prices. The real price of a barrel of oil should be $144, bin Laden demanded.

Ten years ago today, the price of a barrel of oil was just $11. Heading into this holiday weekend, the price of a barrel of oil rested at $144 — a thirteen-fold increase.

Freedom is on the march

Dubya, 9/21/2001:

Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we see right here in this chamber -- a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms -- our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.

Our few remaining freedoms are now "quaint anachronisms". After the FISA outrage passes in a few days, the Adminstration's triumph over freedom will be virtually complete.

Mission Accomplished.

Bush was right when he said they hate us for our lifestyle, our democracy and our freedom. He just mispoke when he said "us". The conservative wingnutters of America (a scarily large percentage of the population in the U.S.) is who really hates those things. And, we just lost another one (with Obama's help). The freedom to conspire about how to overthrow an illegal, terrorist government (ours of course) in secrecy.
