Another bill being pushed for approval along with these benefits is the family reunification bill, which veterans would use to expedite the immigration process for family members still remaining in the Philippines.

Kerry’s Support of Iraq Invasion & Bush Doctrine Still Unexplained (tags)

Back in October 2002, when Senator Kerry voted to grant President Bush a blank check to make war, he tried to scare the American public into thinking that such an invasion was essential to the defense of the United States. Despite a lack of credible evidence, Kerry categorically declared that “Iraq has chemical and biological weapons” and even claimed that most elements of Iraq’s chemical and biological weapons programs were “larger and more advanced than they were before the Gulf War.” Furthermore, Kerry asserted that Iraq was “attempting to develop nuclear weapons,” backing up this accusation by claiming that “all U.S. intelligence experts agree” with such an assessment. He also alleged that “Iraq is developing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) capable of delivering chemical and biological warfare agents, which could threaten Iraq’s neighbors as well as American forces in the Persian Gulf.” Every single one of these claims, no less than similar claims by President Bush, was false.

Gored Liberals, Wasted Votes, and Selling Out (tags)

This article from Monkeyfist.com neatly disposes of the Loyal Liberal's attempt to smear Nader and his supporters. Gore promises to be terrible for progressive causes; the Clinton-Gore DLC gambit has been terrible for the Democratic Party; and Gore hasn't given Nader or the Greens any reasons to support him. It would be ill-advised for Nader supporters to sell out to and for Gore for what he's offered them so far: nothing but scorn, derision, and hypocrisy.
