The Mayor of Pluto Wins!!

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Aug. 6, 2004 — An unabashed racist will represent the Republican party in the November election for a congressional seat after a write-in candidate failed to derail his effort.
With 86 percent of the primary vote counted Thursday, write-in candidate Dennis Bertrand had just 1,554 votes compared to 7,671, or 83 percent, for James L. Hart, a believer in the discredited, phony science of eugenics.
Unabashed Racist Leads Tenn. GOP Primary

This guy makes David Duke seem reasonable and moderate. To really grasp his essence you have to go to his own website, which I'll not exerpt here.

James Hart

A fitting representative for the New Republican Party, and one who should be hung around the necks of Bush* and Delay and Frist at every opportunity.

Ordered to Just Walk Away

Saturday, August 07, 2004
BAGHDAD - The national guardsman peering through the long-range scope of his rifle was startled by what he saw unfolding in the walled compound below.

From his post several stories above ground level, he watched as men in plainclothes beat blind folded and bound prisoners in the enclosed grounds of the Iraqi Interior Ministry.

He immediately radioed for help. Soon after, a team of Oregon Army National Guard soldiers swept into the yard and found dozens of Iraqi detainees who said they had been beaten, starved and deprived of water for three days.

In a nearby building, the soldiers counted dozens more prisoners and what appeared to be torture devices - metal rods, rubber hoses, electrical wires and bottles of chemicals. Many of the Iraqis, including one identified as a 14-year-old boy, had fresh welts and bruises across their back and legs.

The soldiers disarmed the Iraqi jailers, moved the prisoners into the shade, released their handcuffs and administered first aid. Lt. Col. Daniel Hendrickson of Albany, Ore., the highest ranking American at the scene, radioed for instructions.

But in a move that frustrated and infuriated the guardsmen, Hendrickson's superior officers told him to return the prisoners to their abusers and immediately withdraw. It was June 29 - Iraq's first official day as a sovereign country since the U.S. invasion.
Ordered to Just Walk Away

Read the rest. As opposed to the American Soldiers who engaged in torture, THESE Soldiers stopped it, and were ordered to mind their own business. This is what happens when an Armed Force abandons it's Principles, which our Armed Forces have been ordered to do.

How many years will it take to regain our National Honor?? Can we ever??
