www.Bushwatch.com: Actually the first Bushwatch. They've been around since 1998 and they're probably the second best anti-Bush site out there.
BuzzFlash: Probably the best Drudge-like site for the Left that I've seen. They get all the dirt.
Democrats.Com: A very mean and aggressive site. You can tell that they're not connected with the Democratic Party establishment.
Linkcrusader: Compiles all the anti-Bush, pro-Democracy sites out there.

particular page is dedicated to watching our new and stunningly inarticulate president in
chief. While we would hope that the man from Texas would bring us a new utopia of clean
fuels and bright, shiny well educated kids, we think our future will more than likely
resemble something like the Bladerunner skies: Dark and foreboding, with the occasional
plume of sporadic fire. This page is dedicated towards chronicling what we think will be
four years of Antichrist like behavior concerning civil liberties, civil rights, the
environment, the war machine economy and evil that we can't imagine yet. (Originally published January 5, 2001)
Indeed, the most basic Bush mystery is how he spends his time. We know he doesn't follow culture, except sports. He doesn't bone up on public policy. He's never really traveled (he's been to Scotland once, for a wedding). He's narrowly read. His ranch house doesn't have cable; he doesn't avidly follow the news. Information -- including news of Dick Cheney's heart attack -- seems to reach him slowly, sp`oradically. He seems insulated, as a matter both of process and inclination. There's no question that he delegates: James Baker ran Florida; Dick Cheney ran the transition. The unanswered question is, What doesn't he delegate? What does Bush himself decide? Who does the job of the president? Is there anybody there?

Obviously, I haven't posted here in awhile for cataloging all of the Bush administration's various evils seems to me to be repetitive and redundant. I'm trying to think of other ways of changing things other than this particular page. More news on this as it comes to me.

First Reports From CNN and our Idiot Prince's Comments
Must Read. Here's a sample:
3. Under various decrees of the revolutionary command council, capital punishment can be handed out cruelly and whimsically in Iraq for a wide variety of offences. Guilt or innocence is irrelevant. This is reported only by a few outside human rights bodies. This would cease under an American-installed system. Instead, executions would be largely confined to black murderers, most of whom will probably be guilty, accused of murdering whites and too poor to afford a decent lawyer. This will be reported only by a few outside human-rights bodies.
5. Any Iraqi journalist thought likely to ask Saddam Hussein a difficult question is now subject to the dictates of paragraph 3. The American way (as seen during the presidential press conference two weeks ago) provides for such people to be stuck at the back of the room and simply not called.
Not enough chatter about this: Israelis Murder Peace Activist. God help us if it was the French...
Here are some pics from the Washington D.C. Protest.
And there's this:
I thought the best commentary came from Max Sawicky, who was there. He takes two devastating shots at Instapundit here and here. And Atrios takes a shot at Glenn as well, always good fun. And Oliver, bloggin' up a storm lately as befits his celebrity status, takes on the ANSWER Smearers.
Meanwhile, back at the Transhumanist Future, James Hughes has written a very compelling piece over at Better Humans. He too is pushing the correct idea that technology thrives in democratic societies. He actually elaborates on this more in this essay. (My Fave line: "avante garde minorities.") Like me, James is also a charter member of the Ministry of Extraneous and Ironic Links. Check out his Pac Man link. It's not nearly as cool as my "Brotherhood of Evil Mutants" link the week before, but hey, we can't all be gifted.

ON The Eve of a New Year: Obviously, there has be to a lot more work done around here. The only reason you haven't seen more stuff is that I've been kind of depressed and busy as of late. But with this unprecedented level of evil there has to be some comment, some note-taking. So, I'll be working harder in 2003 to fully document the worst age I've ever lived through, and which a pure dissenter like myself might not survive...Into the breach.

I honestly don't know what to say anymore about the Bush administration. I think it's the most evil administration I've ever had the displeasure of living through. It's not just that he's not that swift, or knowledgeable, or can't pronounce words, it's his habit of always making the worst decision. All the time. I don't believe in religion but God does this guy have the makings of the Anti-Christ. I mean, isn't this what the Anti-Christ would do? Wouldn't the Evil One start conflicts, ignore root causes, argue that cutting down trees would prevent forest fires (This actually might not be wrong, but coming from him it still seems self-serving and evil.). There are so many stories that reflect on this man's evil--and not just opinion pieces, but studies and investigative pieces--that you hardly know where to begin. But here are three items, apologies to the Marvel Bullpen Page and Excelsior!
Item!: There was a massive 20 year study about the effects of globalization. A liberal think tank did it but its results aren't surprising if you're watching the world, or wondering why you can't live on what you're making. Anyway, it appeared at a great new site called "Reclaiming Democracy". The link to the story is here.
"From 1980-2000, most
countries followed the paths of public spending cuts, corporatization of public services,
implementing fees for health care (and education in many case), and removing government
protection for young industries. Many of the world's poor and mid-income countries
experienced unprecedented levels of foreign debt and loss of their wealth to interest on
loans during the period.
Item!: And just in case you thought those
guys were lying about the effects of globalization, here's a specific story about how
globalization is destroying South Africa and, in particular, the credibility of the
African National Congress.
Here's the kicker graph. Over there at Instant
Pundit he makes it clear that we're ignoring the atrocities in Zimbabwe. Well, I'm not and
I'll always call an atrocity an atrocity. But if inequalities aren't addressed folks get
angry and no I don't agree with Godless that it's the victim's fault. I'm guessing that
this happened over in Zimbabwe:
Item!: Here's yet another story that Glenn probably won't link to. It turns out that Coke not only discourages union activity in Colombia, but it actually orchestrates the death squad hits. Don't you just love America? Somebody tries to make a decent wage doing something other than sell cocaine and of course you simply have to have them killed. File this under "Why They Hate Us?"
"According to Terry
Collingsworth of the Washington DC-based International Labor Rights Fund and co-counsel
for the plaintiffs, "There is no question that Coke knew about, and benefits from,
the systematic repression of trade union rights at its bottling plants in Colombia, and
this case will make the company accountable." The plaintiffs are seeking compensation
and an end to the human rights abuses committed against Coca-Cola's employees and union
