Ads lie

By John ServaisOn Aug 27, 2004

How did Bush get in the National Guard and avoid Vietnam?

Let the truth prevail. What is wrong with the Swift Boat ads that trash Kerry’s Vietnam record? Is it because they are 527 ads? No. Is

By John ServaisOn Aug 25, 2004

This morning the Rome Grange canceled the Motor Boats Off issue from their agenda at this evening’s Bill Mize Forum. Why? Threats and demands from the motor-boating community. Rational used to cancel:

Let truth prevail

By John ServaisOn Aug 23, 2004

The military records of Kerry and Bush are relevant. Both sides have spent millions because they think the American voters care. We are in a war and personal military experience is relevant.

Rove is behind the Kerry attack ads

By John ServaisOn Aug 22, 2004

The Bush campaign machine’s smear of Kerry’s service record is beginning to backfire. Soon, when attention is turned to Bush’s record, watch the Republicans scream foul. None screamed as lies were tol

Once, only Democrats or wimpy liberals would do it

By John ServaisOn Aug 19, 2004

Bush ads are trashing a Vietnam veteran’s record. The trashing of Vietnam veterans is supposedly the realm of war-hating hippies and liberals. Republicans have expressed their disdain about this for o

The best comment yet on the movie

By John ServaisOn Aug 15, 2004

By John ServaisOn Jul 13, 2004

He has his leering look as he leans over a podium and says the US is safer with Saddam removed from power. That’s it. And variations on that. He has it down pat. He stumbles when he speaks of anything

Postpone the election?

By John ServaisOn Jul 12, 2004

Well, no surprise. And not even close to the extreme measures the weird people behind Bush will go to in order to avoid being thrown out of office. They went ballistic when Clinton was elected. They u

Have you seen the movie yet?

By John ServaisOn Jul 11, 2004

Seems most of my conservative friends are avoiding it. But they tell me what they think of Michael Moore and they are not nice comments. They should see the movie first.

Fahrenheit 9/11

Saw Fahrenheit 9/11
