Iraq War Ends; Roger Clemens Is Innocent

Did you ever wonder why we Americans tolerated a 7.5 year war, a pointless fabricated war in Iraq?

On the very day that the last combat battalion in Iraq crossed the border into Kuwait – from whence they came – Houston Astros star ballplayer Roger Clemens’ lawyer, Rusty Hardin, got media coverage concerning his client’s innocence for taking performance enhancing drugs.


And this, and not the end of combat operations in the illegal and immoral war in Iraq is front page news on the Houston Chronicle.

God, sometimes (no, more than most times) I hate where I live.

If you are so miserable, why don't you move?

Because you actually like it don't you?

Incredible, isn't it? But it's not just where you live, unless you mean the USA in general. The Oregonian yesterday had headlines about Vestas wind energy building a new HQ in PDX (jobs jobs jobs)and the big egg recall (don't eat eggs you'll get deathly ill) taking up most of the space on page 1. It took until page A5 for any mention of Iraq, a quarter page section including photo of armored vehicles crossing into Kuwait, with the focus being on the security contractors. Today's paper? NADA. Not one word or photo, not one op ed, not one letter to the editor. Today it was all about 2+ months missing Kyron Horman's evil stepmother- 3/4 of front page, all of A8 and A9 including her body building pic, the second of three wedding pic, and a list of all of the extended family members from all the divorces and remarriages. Welcome to our shallow tabloid society.
