Landlęknir Bandarķkjanna mį ekki tala um kynfręšslu eša stofnrumur, veršur aš nefna Bush minnst einu sinni į mķnśtu...

CarmonaĶ gęr bįru žrķr fyrrverandi landlęknar bandarķkjanna bįru vitni fyrir žingnenfd. Žeirra į mešal var Richard H. Carmona, sem var landlęknir Bush žar til fyrir skemstu. New York Times lżsir framburši Carmona:

Former Surgeon General Richard H. Carmona told a Congressional panel Tuesday that top Bush administration officials repeatedly tried to weaken or suppress important public health reports because of political considerations.

The administration, Dr. Carmona said, would not allow him to speak or issue reports about stem cells, emergency contraception, sex education, or prison, mental and global health issues. Top officials delayed for years and tried to “water down” a landmark report on secondhand smoke, he said. Released last year, the report concluded that even brief exposure to cigarette smoke could cause immediate harm. ...

He described attending a meeting of top officials in which the subject of global warming was discussed. The officials concluded that global warming was a liberal cause and dismissed it, he said. “And I said to myself, ‘I realize why I’ve been invited. They want me to discuss the science because they obviously don’t understand the science,’ ” he said. “I was never invited back

Semsagt: Carmona mįtti ekki tala um mikilvęg heilbrigšismįl: Hann mįtti t.d. ekki śtskżra fyrir žjóšinni hvernig stofnfrumurannsóknir fara fram eša ķ hverju žęr felast, hann mįtti ekki śtskżra fyrir almenningi aš tóaksreykingar vęru skašlegar, og hann mįtti ekki śtskżra fyrir öšrum repśblķkönum aš gróšurhśsaįhrifin vęru raunverulegt vandamįl en ekki eitthvaš sósķalķstķstk plott til aš klekkja į heišarlegum bissnessmönnum ķ Texas eša Dubai?

En žaš fyndnasta er samt eftir:

Bandarķkjaher tvķdrepur yfirmann Al Qaeda ķ Ķrak...

Žessi mašur aš vķsu heitir Abu Hamza, en žaš žarf aš duga. Ég fann enga mynd af Said Hamza...Samkvęmt Examiner hefur Bandarķkjaher tekist aš tvķdrepa einn af yfirmönnum Al Qaeda ķ Ķrak. Įblašamannafundi į mįnudaginn tilkynnti fulltrśi hersins, meš töluveršu stolti, aš Said Hamza, hęttulegasti leištogi Al Qaeda ķ Ķrak hefši veriš drepinn.

Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner began his Monday news conference with a list of top insurgents either killed or captured in recent operations. He said they had been eliminated "in the past few weeks" and were "recent results."

"In the north, Iraqi army and coalition forces continue successful operations in Mosul," he told reporters. "Kamal Jalil Uthman, also known as Said Hamza, was the al Qaeda in Iraq military emir of Mosul. He planned, coordinated and facilitated suicide bombings, and he facilitated the movement of more than a hundred foreign fighters through safe houses in the area." All told, Bergner devoted 68 words to Uthman's demise.

Žetta vęru aušvitaš stórfréttir, ef žęr vęru ekki įrs gamlar. Herinn hefur nefnilega įšur drepiš žennan "Said Hamza"! Fyrir įri sķšan var "Hamza" žessi nefnilega į lista yfir Al Qaeda liša sem hefšu veriš drepnir.

Uthman was listed in the 2006 news release as "the chief of military operations [in] Mosul."

When The Examiner pointed out that Uthman's death had been announced twice, a command spokesman said in an e-mail, "You are correct that we did previously announce that we killed him. This was a roll up to show an overall effort against [al Qaeda in Iraq]. We can probably do a better job on saying 'previously announced' when we do long-term roll ups to show an overall effort."

Nż Fox News könnun: kjósendur treysta demokrötum betur komi til heimsstyrjaldar viš alla mśslima allstašar

Hezbollah heilsarŽaš er alltaf gaman aš sjį skoša skošanakannanir Fox news, žvķ žęr innihalda alltaf eina eša fleiri spurningar sem eru svo furšulega oršašar aš aš mašur skilur ekki alveg hvernig nokkrum manni myndi detta ķ hug aš spyrja žeirra. Engu aš sķšur gefa žessar spurningar góša innsżn, bęši ķ žankagang žįttastjórenda Fox og įhorfenda žeirra. Fox kannanirnar innihalda nefnilega oft žaš sem kallaš eru "talking points" republķkanaflokksins, og žaš er gagnlegt aš sjį hvort žau eiga samhljóm meš žjóšinni. Ķ vor spurši Fox t.d.

Do you think the Democratic Party should allow a grassroots organization like Moveon.org to take it over or should it resist this type of takeover?

Svariš var aušvitaš "nei" - en Fox datt ekki ķ hug aš spyrja

"Do you think the Republican Party should allow grassroots organizations like the NRA to take it over or should it resist this type of takeover?"

Nu, eša

"Do you think the Republican Party should allow Talk Radio hosts like Hugh Hewitt to dictate policy on important national issues like immigration"

Bęši eru žó "sanngjarnar" spurningar ef lógķk Fox er fylgt. (Sjį hér Townhall grein varšandi įhrif Hewitt į žingmenn). Ķ nżjustu könnuninni er spurt: Ef allir ķslamófasistar allra landa sameinast ķ einhverskonar allsherjar mśslimabandalag og fara ķ strķš viš hinn stóra Satan - hvorum myndir žś treysta til aš verja frelsi, lżšręši og vestręna menningu, demokrötum eša repśblķkönum?

If there is an all-out war between the United States and various radical Muslim groups worldwide, who would you rather have in charge — Democrats or Republicans?

Nś hefši mašur ętlaš aš žaš vęri bara eitt svar viš žessari spurningu, Giuliani og Mitt Romney, žvķ repśblķkanar hafa sķšan 9/11 stöšugt hamraš į žvķ aš žeim einum sé treystandi ķ žessum "nżja heimi" žar sem ķslamófasistar leynast į bak viš hvert horn, allir mśslimar eša innflytjendur séu hugsanlega terroristar og žaš er einhvernveginn ešlilegt aš spyrja žingmenn hvort žeir vinni meš hryšjuverkamönnum, af žvķ žeir séu mśslimar - eša jafnvel gefa ķ skyn aš forsetaframbjóšendur séu į mįla hjį wahhabķskum klerkum frį Saudi Arabķu.

En Repśblķkanar viršast hafa blóšmjólkaš žessa kś, žvķ kjósendur treysta žeim sķšur en demokrötum til aš heyja žrišju heimsstyrjöldina!

Democrats 41%, Republicans 38%, Both the same 9%, Don’t know 12%

Žessi nišurstaša viršist bena til žess aš "All 9/11, All the time" rökręšutękni og pólķtķk repśblķakana sé bśin aš ganga sér til hśšar.

CIA gerši tilraunir meš LSD, ręktaši ópķum, starfaši meš mafķósum

ljósmynd af gólfinu ķ andyri CIAFyrr ķ vikunni var leynd lyft af skjölum CIA frį tķmum kalda strķšsins. Žaš sem er merikilegast viš žessa frétt er aš ķ ljós kemur aš allar vęnusjśkustu og ótrślegustu samsęriskenningar tengdar leynižjónustunni viršast sannar! NYT:

Known inside the agency as the “family jewels,” the 702 pages of documents released Tuesday catalog domestic wiretapping operations, failed assassination plots, mind-control experiments and spying on journalists from the early years of the C.I.A.

The papers provide evidence of paranoia and occasional incompetence as the agency began a string of illegal spying operations in the 1960s and 1970s, often to hunt links between Communist governments and the domestic protests that roiled the nation in that period.

Og hverskonar gleši og sprell skyldu starfsmenn leynižjónustunnar hafa fundiš upp į? Ķ ljós kemur aš leynižjónustan var jafn galin og starfsmenn hersins, sem į tķunda įratugnum ętlušu aš finna upp "hommunarsprengju". Ķ ljós kemur aš starfsmenn leynižjónustunnar hafi hleraš hótelherbergi ķ Las Vegas - fyrir mafķuna. Allen Dulles, sem er öllum įhugamönnum um samsęriskenningar eša Kalda strķšiš aš góšu kunnur, lagši blessun sķna yfir samstarf meš mafķunni - til aš eitra fyrir Kastró. CIA ręktaši lķka ópķum ķ Washingtonfylki. Washington Post fjallar um eiturlyfjatilraunir CIA og ašrar tilraunir meš "mind control":

The CIA was eager to examine the use of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs to modify the behavior of targeted individuals, and so it asked commercial drug manufacturers to pass along samples of medicines rejected for commercial sale "because of unfavorable side effects," according to an undated memorandum included in dozens of CIA documents released yesterday.

Another document, dated May 8, 1973, mentions the existence of a 1963 account of agency scientists administering mind- or personality-altering drugs on "unwitting subjects" -- that is, testing hallucinogens such as LSD on people without their knowledge. The document doesn't provide details.

Mikiš af skjölunum sem gerš voru upptęk höfšu žó veriš svert śt, svo žaš er aldrei aš vita hverju öšru CIA fann upp į:

One memo that lists the most damaging secrets contained in "the family jewels" is missing its first paragraph. A separate memo that is supposed to summarize the "unusual activities" of the CIA's domestic branch includes just three paragraphs followed by 17 blacked-out pages.

Ég geri rįš fyrir aš parturinn um hvernig LBJ fékk mafķuna, og OAS, til aš rįša JFK af dögum?

Demokratar leggja til aš skrifstofa Cheney verši skorin af fjįrlögum, enda sé hann ekki rķkisstofnun...

Bloggarar og blašamenn elska žessa mynd af Cheney...Eftir aš žaš komst ķ hįmęli aš Dick Cheney hefši haldiš žvķ fram aš hann vęri hvorki hluti framkvęmda- né löggjafarvaldsns hafa fréttaskżrendur og įhugamenn um stjórnmįl veriš aš reyna aš įtta sig į žvķ hvaš Cheney vęri. Demokratar į Bandarķkjažingi hafa įkvešiš aš nota fjįrveitingarvald žingsins til aš fį nišurstöšu ķ žetta mįl: (Raw Story):

Following Vice President Dick Cheney's assertion that his office is not a part of the executive branch of the US government, Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) plans to introduce an amendment to the the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill to cut funding for Cheney's office.

The amendment to the bill that sets the funding for the executive branch will be considered next week in the House of Representatives.

"The Vice President has a choice to make. If he believes his legal case, his office has no business being funded as part of the executive branch," said Emanuel in a statement released to RAW STORY. "However, if he demands executive branch funding he cannot ignore executive branch rules. At the very least, the Vice President should be consistent. This amendment will ensure that the Vice President's funding is consistent with his legal arguments."

Samkvęmt frétt Roll Call hefur Cheney fengiš nęrri fimm milljón dollara į fjįrlögum hvers įrs til rekstur skrifstofunnar. Hvķta Hśsiš hefur įtt ķ mestu vandręšum meš aš śtskżra stöšu Cheney innan stjórnkerfisins, eša hvaš hann eigi eiginlega viš žegar hann žykist hvorki vera hluti framkvęmdavaldsins eša lögjafarvaldsins:
At a press briefing yesterday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino said that Cheney's assertion that he operates outside of the executive branch of government was "an interesting constitutional question that people can debate" and a "non-issue."
Hvaš į eiginlega aš ręša? Er žetta mjög flókin spurning? Reyndar viršist dómsmįlarįšuneytiš lķka eiga ķ erfišleikum meš aš svara žvķ hvort varaforsetinn sé hluti framkvęmdavaldsins. Žetta fįrįnlega mįl allt, sem Perino, talsmanni Hvķta Hśssins finnst vera "a non-issue" kom upp į yfirboršiš eftir aš Cheney neitaši aš veita the Information Security Oversight Office, aš skrifstofu sinni. ISOO er hluti Rķkisskjalasafnsins, og hefur eftirlit meš žvķ aš leynileg gögn og skjöl sem geyma rķkisleyndarmįl séu varšveitt į samkvęmt reglum sem forsetinn sjįlfur hefur gefiš śt. Samkvęmt žessum reglum į ISOO aš hafa eftirlit meš öllum skrifstofum, deildum eša öšrum sjįlfstęšum einingum innan framkvęmdavaldsins sem starfa meš, eša hafa ašgang aš leynilegum upplżsingum. Styrinn stóš ekki um aš einhverjir bjśrókratar og skjalaveršir fengju aš róta ķ skśffunum į skrifborši Cheney: Cheney neitaši aš gefa upp statistķk! New York times:

...after repeatedly refusing to comply with a routine annual request from the archives for data on his staff’s classification of internal documents, the vice president’s office in 2004 blocked an on-site inspection of records that other agencies of the executive branch regularly go through.

... starting in 2003, the vice president’s office began refusing to supply the information. In 2004, it blocked an on-site inspection by Mr. Leonard’s office that was routinely carried out across the government to check whether documents were being properly labeled and safely stored.

Žetta er frekar einfalt mįl: Cheney, sem varaforseti Bandarķkjanna, er hluti framkvęmdavaldsins, ISOO į aš hafa eftirlit meš mešferš framkvęmdavaldsns į leynilegum skjölum. Eftir aš Cheney meinaši ISOO aš fį aš kanna mešferš į skjölum baš stofnunin žvķ dómsmįlarįšuneytiš um śrskurš ķ žessu mįli. (Ķ millitķšinni reyndi Cheney svo aš fį ISOO lagt nišur, en sś tilraun mistókst...) Dómsmįlarįšuneytiš segist vera aš "skoša mįliš":
In January, Mr. Leonard (yfirmašur ISOO) wrote to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales asking that he resolve the question. Erik Ablin, a Justice Department spokesman, said last night, “This matter is currently under review in the department.”

Dómsmįlarįšuneytiš var spurt ķ janśar sķšastlišnum hvort varaforsetaembęttiš vęri hluti framkvęmdavaldsins eša ekki - fimm mįnušum sķšar hefur Alberto Gonzales ekki getaš gert upp hug sinn!

Eru demokratar og repśblķkanar sekir um 'samskonar' öfgar?

Beck spyr Keith Ellison, žingmann demokrata frį Minnesota, fyrsta mśslima į Bandarķkjažingi hvort hann sé hryšjuverkamašur og hvort honum sé treystandi...!Žvķ heyrist oft fleygt aš demokratar og repśblķkanar séu einhvernveginn "eins" og aš žaš séu "samskonar" öfgar beggja vegna. Žegar vinstrimenn benda į Ann Coulter benda hęgrimenn į Bill Maher, žegar vinstrimenn benda į Michael Savage benda hęgrimenn į Michael Moore. Eini vandinn viš žetta er aš fjölmišlafķgśrur repśblķkana eru alls ekki "eins og" fjölmišlafķgśrur vinstrimanna - eins og fram kom ķ žętti Glenn Beck į CNN ķ gęrkvöld. Beck er žekktur fyrir öfgakenndar hugmyndir sķnar og skort į smekkvķsi, en ķ gęr held ég aš hann hljóti aš hafa nįš įšur óžekktum lęgšum.

Beck fékk Michael Graham sem er fyrrverandi rįšgjafi Repśblķkanaflokksins og śtvarpsmašur voru aš ręša nżjustu auglżsingu Hillary Clinton, en sś er byggš į lokasenu Sopranos žįttanna. Ašdįendur Sopranos hafa deilt um hvaš žessi lokasena eigi aš žżša en henni lżkur einhvernveginn įn žess aš neinn botn fįist ķ neitt - og margir viršast hallast aš žvķ aš Tony Soprano sé myrtur ķ lok senunnar: žaš er allt ķ einu klippt ķ svart, sem į žį aš tįkna daušann.

Graham virtist vera žessarar skošunar og spurši Beck hvort žaš hefši ekki veriš "ęšislegt" ef Clintonhjónin hefšu veriš myrt ķ myndskeišinu

Seriously, Glenn, didn’t you at one point want to see, like, Paulie Walnuts or someone come in and just whack them both right there. Wouldn’t that have been great?

Beck brosti sķnu breišasta, en žar sem žaš žykir ósmekklegt aš lįta sig dreyma um aš myrša fyrrverandi forseta og nśverandi forsetaframbjóšendur sagšist Beck ekki hafa viljaš sjį žaš. Graham svaraši: "C’mon. … I wanted that." Žaš er hęgt aš horfa į upptöku af žessum oršaskiptum į Think Progress.

Beck hefur įšur talaš um aš sig langaši til aš myrša Michael Moore. Žaš er hęgt aš hlusta į upptöku af Beck dreyma um morš į Media Matters:

Hang on, let me just tell you what I'm thinking. I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out -- is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, "Yeah, I'd kill Michael Moore," and then I'd see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I'd realize, "Oh, you wouldn't kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn't choke him to death." And you know, well, I'm not sure.

Nei, kannski myndi Jesś ekki vilja leggja blessun sķna yfir morš. Kannski. Glenn Beck er ekki alveg viss. 

Ég skal višurkenna aš žaš eru įbyggilega til vinstrimenn ķ Bandarķkjunum sem dreymir um aš myrša pólķtķska andstęšinga sķna - eša kvikmyndageršarmenn sem žeim lķkar ķlla viš - en ég get ekki munaš eftir žvķ aš hafa nokkurntķmann heyrt stungiš upp į žvķ opinberlega. Cindy Sheehan er eina undantekningin - en žaš eru allir, lķka vinstrimenn, sammįla um aš hśn er coocoo, og į samśš skylda. Sonur hennar dó ķ Ķrak, og žaš skżrir kannski eitthvaš - en hvaša afsökun hefur Glenn Beck? Žess utan er hśn ekki meš daglegan sjónvarpsžįtt į einni stęrstu kapalfréttastöš Bandarķkjanna. Michelle Malkin, sem sjįlf hefur skrifaš greinar žar sem hśn ver 'racial profiling' og įkvöršun Bandarķkjastjórnar ķ fyrri heimsstyrjöldinni aš loka alla Bandarķkjamenn af japönskum uppruna ķ fangabśšum, skrifaši um Sheehan į Townhall:

On the fifth anniversary week of the September 11 attacks, the anger of entertainment industry liberals and anti-war zealots is directed not at Islamic terrorists telling us to convert or die. ...

No, their thoughts are not focused on killing jihadists. Their dreams lie with killing George W. Bush. The mainstreaming of presidential assassination chic is on.

In her new book, "Peace Mom," Cindy Sheehan confesses on page 29 that she has imagined going back in time and killing the infant George W. Bush in order to prevent the Iraq War.

Malkin gat ekki haldiš aftur af vandęltingunni, og notaši tękifęriš til aš halda žvķ fram aš allir vinstrimenn vęru einhverskonar vitfirringar. Aušvitaš er augljóst aš Sheehan er ekki meš öllum mjalla - og žessir furšulegu draumórar hennar um aš myrša Bush sem kornabarn voru žaš sem fyllti męlinn fyrir nįnast alla vinstrimenn sem höfšu haft samśš meš Sheehan og stutt hana ķ barįttu sinni gegn Bush. Sheehan hefur sķšan horfiš śr svišsljósinu, enda kęrir enginn sig um aš vera bendlašur viš fólk sem dreymir um aš myrša (eša horfa į) sitjandi eša fyrrverandi Bandarķkjaforseta. Eša hvaš?

Mešan menn eins og Glenn Beck tala ķ fjölmišlum um aš myrša pólķtķska andstęšinga finnst mér nokkuš augljóst hvor hlišin hefur gengiš lengra ķ aš pólarķsera eša draga stjórnmįlaumręšuna ķ Bandarķkjunum nišur ķ svašiš.

Talsmenn afhommunar farnir aš efast um aš hęgt sé aš 'lękna' samkynhneigš

Žessar elskulegu konur hata ekki homma - guš hatar žį fyrir žęr!Fólk sem vill reyna aš fela hómófóbķu sķna į bak viš trś eša vķsindi hefur haldiš žvķ fast fram aš samkynhneigš sé einhverskonar "val" og "lķfsstķll" - žaš sé ósköp einfalt val, svona eins og hvort mašur ętli sér aš drekka appelsķnu- eša eplasafa meš morgunmatnum. Menn og konur, žó hómófóbķskir trśmenn, sem nįnast allir eru karlmenn sjįlfir, hafi yfirleitt meiri įhyggjur af gay karlmönnum en konum (I wonder why?), geti žvķ vališ hvort žeir ętli aš vera gay eša straight. En einhverra hluta vegna viršist fólk eiga erfitt meš aš yfirgefa žennan "lķfsstķl" - og žaš er žį śtskżrt meš einhverskonar fimmaurasįlfręši - samkynhneigš sé "fķkn" eša einhverskonar įunnin pažólógķa sem žurfi aš "lękna" fólk af. Sjónvarpspredķkarinn Ted Haggard, sem predķkaši hįstöfum um hversu syndsamleg samkynhneigš vęri, varš t.d. fręgur fyrir aš verša fyrst uppvķs aš žvķ aš hafa stundaš samkynhneigša vęndisžjónustu ("nuddžjónustu" sagši hann sjįlfur) ķ mörg įr, og sķšan fyrir aš "lęknast" af sömu samkynhneigš ķ žriggja vikna "žerapķu".

Žessi fįrįnlega trś, aš hęgt sé aš "lękna" fólk af samkynhneigš į sér marga hįvęra talsmenn. Žeirra į mešal Dr. Holsinger (sjį fyrri fęrslur hér og hér) sem George Bush hefur tilnefnt sem nęsta landlękni Bandarķkjanna.

Svo viršist žó sem žessi fįrįnlega hugmynd sé aš tapa fylgi mešal afturhaldssamra og hómófóbķskra trśmanna. Alan Chambers, sem stżrir stęrstu "ex-gay" kirkjusöfnuši Bandarķkjanna, og er sjįlfur "ex-gay" hefur lżst žvķ yfir aš hann trśi žvķ ekki lengur aš samkynhneigš sé "lęknanleg": (Skv. LA Times)

With years of therapy, Chambers says, he has mostly conquered his own attraction to men; he's a husband and a father, and he identifies as straight. But lately, he's come to resent the term "ex-gay": It's too neat, implying a clean break with the past, when he still struggles at times with homosexual temptation. "By no means would we ever say change can be sudden or complete," Chambers said.

Chambers er vķst ekki einn um aš hafa įttaš sig į žvķ aš samkynhneigš er ekki "lęknanleg":

A leading conservative theologian outside the ex-gay movement recently echoed the view that homosexuality may not be a choice, but a matter of DNA. To the shock and anger of many of his constituents, the Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, wrote that "we should not be surprised" to find a genetic basis for sexual orientation.

Įstęšan er aušvitaš aš allar sęmilega skynsamar manneskjur, sem hafa örgšu af skilning og umburšarlyndi, og hafa sjįlfar kynnst samkynhneigšu fólki, vita aš hér er ekki į feršinni einhverskonar lęknanlegur sjśkdómur. Og svo viršist sem žessi hópur fari vaxandi, allavegana ķ BNA:

a Gallup Poll last month found that 42% of adults believe sexual orientation is present at birth. (Three decades ago, when Gallup first asked the question, just 13% held that view.)

Žaš mį segja aš žaš sé enn langt ķ land - en žetta er samt stórkostleg breyting, og žaš tekur alltaf langan tķma aš śtrżma inngrónum fordómum og fįfręši. Žetta samrżmist öšrum könnunum sem sżna aš almeningur er upp til hópa frekar jįkvęšur ķ garš samkynhneigšra.

Talsmenn "Ex-gay survivors" (ž.e. fólk sem hefur veriš "afhommaš" meš hjįlp heilažvottar, en sķšan fundiš sjįlft sig aftur) og talsmenn afhommunar, menn eins og Chambers, viršast reyndar vera aš finna einhverskonar lendingu ķ žessu fįrįnlega mįli. Michael Busee, sem er sjįlfur "ex gay survivor", og rekur nś einhverskonar rįšgjafaržjónustu fyrir ašra "ex gay survivors" hefur lagt blessun sķna yfir sišareglur fyrir "sexual identity therapy" "kristinna" hįskóla - ž.e.

He and other gay activists — along with major mental-health associations — still reject therapy aimed at "liberating" or "curing" gays. But Bussee is willing to acknowledge potential in therapy that does not promise change but instead offers patients help in managing their desires and modifying their behavior to match their religious values — even if that means a life of celibacy.

"It's about helping clients accept that they have these same-sex attractions and then allowing them the space, free from bias, to choose how they want to act," said Lee Beckstead, a gay psychologist in Salt Lake City who uses this approach.

The guidelines for this type of therapy — written by Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College and Mark Yarhouse of Regent University — have been endorsed by representatives on both the left and right. The list includes the provost of a conservative evangelical college and the psychiatrist whose gay-rights advocacy in the 1970s got homosexuality removed from the official medical list of mental disorders.

Žaš sem er merkilegt ķ žessu mįli er aš samstaša ķhaldssamra kristinna söfnuša og bókstafstrśarmannna er aš rofna ķ žessu mįli  - og žaš eru ķ žaš minnsta einhverjir ķ žeirra röšum sem eru tilbśnir til aš višurkenna aš fólk getur haft ólķkar kynhvatir, frį nįttśrunnar (eša skaparans) hendi.

Ekki aš ég hef reyndar grun um aš öll žessi "ex gay" hrayfing sé ekkert annaš en skipulögš og śthugsaš plan til žess aš selja karlmönnum (og konum) sem eiga ķ erfišleikum meš kynferši sitt snįkaolķu - ķ žessu tilfelli "mešferš" og sérfręšiašstoš.

Leynivopn Bandarķkjahers: Efnavopn sem gera menn gay...

Seinni heimsstyrjöldin hefši endaš öšru vķsi ef Enola Gay hefši veriš bśin The Gay BombUndanfarna daga hafa bandarķskir fjölmišlar veriš aš flytja fréttir af leynivopnaįętlun Bandarķkjahers, en samkvęmt žessum fréttum vinna eintómir apakettir og jólasveinar hjį vopnažróunardeild hersins. Fyrir žrettįn įrum sķšan (ekki fjörutķu og žremur - heldur žrettan: 1994!) var herinn aš leggja į rįšin um aš hanna "sprengju" sem myndi gera óvinahermenn samkynhneigša og kynóša, svo herdeildir myndu leysast upp ķ einhverskonar Gómorrķskt kaos...

A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb." ...

As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."

Žetta er ekki grķn: Herinn ętlaši aš hanna "a gay bomb", sem vęri "distasteful" en "completely non-lethal" vopn. Nś veit ég ekki alveg hvernig ég į aš bregšast viš žessum fréttum, og spurning hvernig Holsinger, sem Bush hefur tilnefnt sem landlękni bregšist viš žessu - žvķ ķ hans kokkabók er samkynhneigš ekki bara "distasteful" heldur lķka alveg stórhęttuleg.

Til undirbśningsrannsókna žurfti aš fį 7.5 milljónir dala: 

The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.

Hvaš įtti aš rannsaka? Kannski var žetta elaborate cover til aš fį herinn til aš fjįrmagna "rannsóknir" vķsindamananna eša hįttsettra herforingja ķ nęturklśbbum San Fransisco? Žetta er aušvitaš mjög einfalt mįl, og augljóst hvernig žetta undravopn įtti aš virka:

"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents. The Pentagon told CBS 5 that the proposal was made by the Air Force in 1994. ...

"Hommunarsprengjan" er augljóslega mjög einfalt vopn. Og mesta furša aš snillingum viš vopnarannsóknardeildir hersins hafi ekki dottiš žetta ķ hug fyrr en 1994. Kannski voru vķsindamennirnir sem höfšu veriš aš rannsaka Lifnipillur re-assigned til aš finna upp ašra vitleysu? Herinn žvertekur žó fyrir aš veriš sé aš hanna önnur "hommunar" vopn:

Military officials insisted Friday to CBS 5 that they are not currently working on any such idea and that the past plan was abandoned.

Eftir aš hafa lesiš žessa frétt žarf mašur aš staldra viš ķ smį stund, og hugsa meš sér: Žaš voru fulloršnir menn, ķ fastri vinnu, sennilega meš hįskólagrįšur og örugglega į hįum launum hjį skattgreišendum, sem fundu upp į žessu. Ég myndi gefa mikiš fyrir aš fį aš sitja inni į žessum fundum!

George Bush elskašur af öllum Albönum, Paris Hilton hötuš af öllum Bandarķkjamönnum og Gonzales? Ja, žaš hata hann ekki alveg nógu margir...

Undanfarna daga hefur fįtt veriš ķ fjölmišlum annaš en Paris Hilton og heimsókn George Bush til Albanķu. Ef marka mį fréttir er Bush vķst ķ miklum metum hjį Albönum sem finnst hann einhver stórfenglegasti og merkilegasti žjóšarleištogi fyrr og sķšar. sbr. žetta myndskeiš, sem sżnir vķst "Bush nė Fushė-Krujė", sem ég hef ekki hugmynd um hvaš žżšir. En viš getum heyrt ķ Albönunum hrópa ķ bakgrunninum: "Bushie! Bushie! Bushie!"

Žetta hefur fréttaskżrendum og bloggurum hér vestra fundist afskaplega fyndiš, enda er eitthvaš alveg einstaklega spaugilegt viš "Albanķu" sem er eitt af žessum löndum sem allir vita hvar er, og allir hafa mjög óljósar hugmyndir um hvaš gerist ķ žessu landi.

Žaš er annars ekkert skrżtiš aš Bush sé elskašur ķ fyrrum Stalķnķskum einręšisrķkjum eins og Albanķu - ķ Kalda strķšinu žótti Albönum Sovétmenn vera of liberal og vestręnir ķ hugsunarhįttum, svo žeir sögšu skiliš viš Kreml og hnżttu sig aftanķ Kķnverska Kommśnistaflokkinn. Žaš ósętti hófst vķst meš žvķ aš Khrushchev svķvirti hinn elskulega pabba allra žśsund sósķalķsku žjóša Sovétrķkjanna, og var almennt ekki nógu Stalķnķskur og haršsvķrašur aš mati Albanskra kommśnista. Žaš er kannski skiljanlegt aš Albanir kunni aš meta žjóšarleištoga sem vilar ekki fyrir sér aš svipta óbreytta borgara öllum stjórnarskrįrvöršum réttindum, pyntar žį og loka ķ fangelsi įn dóms og laga og geyma žį žar įrum saman? Annaš hvort finnst Albönum heimilislegt aš hitta žjóšarleištoga sem stżrir ofvöxnu og vanhęfu rķkisbįkni, hyglir flokssbroddum og hefur komiš kommissörum fyrir ķ dómsmįlarįšuneytinu - eša žeim finnst hann vera holdgerfingur frjįlslyndis, žvķ hann eša handbendi hans hafa enn sem komiš er ekki veriš stašin aš žvķ aš pynta fanga upp į eigin spżtur?

Hin ašal frétt vikunnar viršist vera aš holdgerfingur vanhęfninnar og flokksręšisins ķ Hvķta Hśsi Bush, Alberto Gonzales er ennžį dómsmįlarįšherra. Į mįnudaginn reyndu Demokratar aš lżsa vantrausti į Gonzales - en žingsįlyktunartillagan nįši ekki tilskildum auknum meirihluta - ķ öldungadeildinni žurfa frumvörp og žingsįlyktunartillögur aš fį 60 atkvęši af 100 til aš koast til atkvęšagreišslu, og žar sem demokratar hafa mjög nauman meirihluta ķ deildinni hefši tillagan žurft stušning nokkurra repśblķkana. Atkvęšagreišsla um hvort tillagan fęri til įframhaldandi umręšu hlaut 53 atkvęši, mešan 38 repśblķkanar greiddu atkvęši gegn žvķ aš deildin fengi aš greiša atkvęši um vantraust. Sjö repśblķkanar greiddu atkvęši meš tillögunni: Coleman, Collins, Hagel, Smith, Snowe, Specter, Sununu. (Sjį śtkomu atvęšagreišslunnar hér)

Senķla gamalmenniš og strķšsęsingamašurinn Joseph Lieberman, sem er fulltrśi fyrir sinn einkaflokk (Liebarman for Connecticut, eša eitthvaš įlķka greindarlegt) greiddi atkvęši gegn, og fjórir demokratar voru fjarstaddir: Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, og Barry Hussein Obama. Tim Johnson greiddi ekki heldur atkvęši, en hann liggur į spķtala og er aš jafna sig eftir heilablóšfall. Tillagan hefši žvķ ekki getaš fengiš nema 57 atkvęši eins og mįlum er hįttaš.

Žetta eru svosem ekki merkilegar fréttir, žvķ Gonzales mun aldrei segja af sér og Bush mun aldrei reka hann- ekki nema Gonzales verši fundinn sekur um kannķbalisma eša eitthvaš žašan af verra. Bush og Gonzales hafa fylgst aš sķšan ķ Texas. Gonzales er ķ innsta hring Bush stjórnarinnar - žaš eru lķklega bara tveir menn sem eru jafn mikilvęgir fyrir forsetann: Dick Cheney og Karl Rove. Gonzales hefur žar fyrir utan skipulagt og rķkt yfir nęrri stjórnlausri śtženslu į allra handa innanrķkisnjósna - og žaš eru ekki öll kurl komin til grafar meš žau prógrömm öll. (Sjį fyrri fęrslur um žetta efni, hér, hér og hér.) Ķ ljósi žess hversu umdeild žessi prógrömm eru er ólķklegt aš forsetinn geti fundiš nżjan dómsmįlarįšherra, įn žess aš hętta į aš vekja aftur upp umręšu um ólöglegar sķmhleranir og njósnir um óbreytta borgara.

Ég yrši žvķ virkilega hissa ef Gonzales yrši skipt śt fyrr en ķ janśar 2009.

Svo er ég aš hugsa mér aš gera nokkrar breytingar į žessu bloggi, og biš lesendur žvķ aš sżna žolinmęši nśna nęstu daga!


Paris Hilton, Abu Ghraib og napalm ķ Vietnam

Paris Hilton buguš undan óréttlęti heimsins... bśśhśśAndrew Sullivan, sem bloggar į Atlantic, benti į merkilega stašreynd: Ljósmyndin af Paris Hilton, grenjandi ķ lögreglubķl, af gešshręringu yfir aš hafa žurft aš sitja undir žvķ aš žaš giltu sömu lög um hana og annaš fólk, er tekin af Nick Ut, ljósmyndara AP. Sami mašur tók, fyrir nįkvęmlega 35 įrum sķšan (8 jśnķ 1972) žessa ljósmynd af 9 įra gamalli stślku, Kim Phuc, hlaupandi nakinni eftir aš hafa oršiš fyrir brennandi napalmi mešan veriš var aš breiša śt lżšręši og berjast viš insurgents einhverstašar ķ austurenda Asķu.

Önnur, og fręgari ljósmynd tekin af Nick Ut fyrir AP fréttastofunaSvona er réttlęti heimsins og óréttlęti sérkennilega tengt. Žaš mį lķka spyrja sig hvort žetta sé til marks um hversu mikiš veröldin hefur breyst, og hvort Al Gore hafi ekki į réttu aš standa žegar hann heldur žvķ fram aš fjölmišlar nś til dags hafi brugšist hlutverki sķnu, aš upplżsa almenning um žaš sem skiptir mįli, fullkomlega? CNN, t.d. hefur lżst žvķ yfir aš žeir séu "The most trusted name in Paris news"... Žaš er žó hęgt aš glešjast yfir žessari frétt AP:

LOS ANGELES — She was taken handcuffed and crying from her home. She was escorted into court disheveled, without makeup, hair askew and face red with tears.

Crying out for her mother when she was ordered back to jail, Paris Hilton's cool, glamorous image evaporated Friday as she gave the impression of a little girl lost in a merciless legal system.

"It's not right!" shouted the weeping Hilton. "Mom!" she called out to Kathy Hilton, who also was in tears. ...

Her body shook constantly as she cried, clutching a ball of tissue, tears running down her face.

Seconds later, the judge announced his decision: "The defendant is remanded to county jail to serve the remainder of her 45-day sentence. This order is forthwith."

Hilton screamed.

En talandi um öskur, fangelsi og óréttlęti heimsins. Fréttir af yfirvofandi fangelsisvist Paris Hilton fengu žįttastjórnendur Fox and Friends til žess aš lżsa žvķ yfir aš refsingin sem Hilton ętti yfir höfši sér vęri "eins og Abu Ghraib":

CAMEROTA: Listen to what she’s looking at in jail. She is going to be treated supposedly like all other prisoners. She’s gonna have a cell to herself. She’s going to have to eat in her cell. ... And she’s gonna get an hour outside of her cell each day where she can shower, she can watch TV in the community room, she can participate in outdoor recreation. But here is what’s going to hurt her the most, you guys.

KELLY: What?

CAMEROTA: She cannot speak on her cell phone.

DOOCY: Are you kidding me?

CAMEROTA: It is surgically attached to her ear.

KELLY: It sounds like Abu Ghraib. C’mon, that’s not cool.

Stundum er fréttaflutningur kapalsjónvarpsstöšvanna nęstum of sśrrealķskur.
