Fahrenheit 9/11 tops the box office

Fahrenheit 9/11 earned 23.9 million dollars at the box office in its North American debut, more than any other documentary in history, indicating it could yet influence voters ahead of November's election, some experts said. The film that bashes Bush over the war in Iraq and for an alleged erosion of US civil rights amid the war against terror, crushed its big-budget Hollywood competition and performed even better than initially estimated.

Kerry Says He Would Raise Minimum Wage

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry on Friday proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $7 an hour by 2007, arguing that such an increase could boost the wages of more than 15 million Americans. Focusing on an issue that resonates with core Democratic voters, Kerry stressed the need to increase the minimum wage and dismissed Republican concerns that a hike would hamper small businesses. "If a president can go out and fight for four years to provide over a trillion in tax cuts to the wealthiest people in America, we can fight for a few months to raise the minimum wage for the poorest people in America," Kerry said.

Massachusetts Republican Gov. Mitt Romney called on John Kerry to resign his Senate seat Friday. Romney said Kerry is not able to do his job as Senator while he is running for President. If you use that reasoning then George Bush and Dick Cheney should resign also.

WHITE HOUSE SPENDS $100,000 ON A RED CARPET

The NY Daily News today reported that the White House spent $100,000 on a red carpet and walkway for the Presidentís D-Day speech in Normandy. According to the News, the $100,000 would have otherwise been spent on soldiers.

You really have to wonder about a President that takes money meant for soldiers and spends it on a vanity set for a speech. With spending habits like these, itís no wonder that the deficit is out of control. Source - Kerry Blog

A pitiful attempt to justify the invasion of Iraq

Vice-President Dick Chaney is running around the country saying Sadam had ties to al-Qaida, despite the fact the 9/11 commission which is chaired by a well respected republican says there is no connection.

This is a pitiful attempt to justify the invasion of Iraq, since all the reasons we were given turned out to be lies.

The Administration is at it again Ė what a shock!

The Bush Administration published a report that terrorism fell this past year in an effort to show that the Presidentís war on terrorism was working. The administration had to quickly retract the report and concede that terrorism actually increased which showed that the Presidentís war on terrorism is not working.

Bush Campaigns Heavily on Air Force One



President Bush is using Air Force One for re-election travel more heavily than any predecessor, wringing maximum political mileage from a perk of office paid for by taxpayers.

While Democratic rival John Kerry digs into his campaign bank account to charter a plane to roam the country, Bush often travels at no cost to his campaign simply by declaring a trip "official" travel rather than "political."

Even when the White House deems a trip as political, the cost to Bush's campaign is minimal. In such instances, the campaign must only pay the government the equivalent of a comparable first-class fare for each political traveler on each leg, Federal Election Commission guidelines say.

Usually, that means paying a few hundred or a few thousand dollars for the president and a handful of aides. It's a minuscule sum, compared to the $56,800-per-hour the Air Force estimates it costs to run Air Force One. By SCOTT LINDLAW, Associated Press Writer
