A $515-billion spending bill was passed under the cover of darkness, Monday night that undermines plans for a U.S.-Mexico border fence, says many media reports. The spending plan carefully manipulated the already signed President Bush bill into a dying provision for a two-tier barrier that has worked well in California, the newspapers reported. Republicans are screaming about the contrived move that's expected to result in a SINGLE-TIERED TRAVESTY OF A BORDER FENCE. It is strange we can afford to pay for the Iraq war, but the protection of the American taxpayer it seems is not even a priority? "The fact that the amendment was buried in a bloated, 3,500-page document tells of the underhand coersion of Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas and Democrats unserious approach to border security and illegal immigration.

Israel certainly has a right to exist and to live in peace with its neighbors. Just as some people hatefully call for its destruction, some in Israel feel the same way about the Palestinians. Both people have done wrong against the other and not always in self-defense. The Palestinian mandate resulted in many Palestinians forced to leave the land ceded to the Jews by the British mandate, some of it at gunpoint by the new Israelis. The settlers are believers that the West Bank and many other territories in the area are all really part of Greater Israel and ultimately want the Palestinians out of there, perhaps in Syria or Jordon, and are willing to die for that land and even to kill other Israelis who would have them leave. Hezbollah and Hamas are fighting for what they believe are their occupied homelands. Their terrorist attacks are similar to attacks by the Jewish terrorists such as their bombing of the Hotel Jerusalem in order to reestablish what they believe to be their homeland. Meacham Begin was a leader of the one of the Jewish terrorist groups and he went on to become an Israeli Prime Minister and to win the Nobel Peace Prize. So much for saying you cannot deal with terrorists. The fighter plane attacks against the occupied people in the Gaza Strip could be seen as state sponsored terrorism against a basically unarmed people by the third most powerful army in the world. The Israeli army claim they are only going against militants, but without any evidence of such, and with “only” God to help the innocent people who might be in the way.
The point is that someone such as the United States has to step forward and stop both groups from destroying each other’s peoples. This is possible, with international support, if it is approached in a fair way with both sides making meaningful concessions and the international community guaranteeing the security of both “countries.” Unfortunately, there are parties in both peoples who do not want a mutually fair resolution.
An honest presentation of facts on the ground. The media only portrays a democracy (Israel) being attacked by savage blood thirst arabs (palestinians) but Israel is the bully aggressor, stealing land and water and killing at least 10 palestinians a day.

Listen to all of you idiots. You are in the vast minority. Your comments were Neddy's stump speach, and Joe still kicked his ass.

Can't believe that anyone anywhere is this great country is paying any attention to what Joe believes or cares about. Talk about a man that has out lived his time. Joe is just such a politician - a man who has out lived his importance. It is TIME for his retirement.

If I were a candidate, I would shun Lieberman's endorsement, as it seems it would be the "KISS" of death, for my candidacy.

Joe is a farce and a disgrace to the Nutmeg State. Liberman is a disgrace to all who voted Democratic. He has no right to say he is a "Democratic Independent" (is there truly a party of one just for Joe?). He should have no affilliation with the Democratic party he abandoned to play the role of the President's lap dog. The Democratic party should sue Joe for his constant use of the party's name as an affilliate when in reality, he has sided more often with the Republicans on issues that matter. He is a joke and it is painful to watch him abuse the name of the Democratic party only to deflect his own reputation of truly being affilliated to the Republican Party due to their current unpopularity. If it walks like a duck and poops like a duck, then it is a duck. Quack away Joe the "Independent Egotistical Republican"....

Joe Lieberman lied to Connecticut.

Turncoat Joe supports a Republican for president in 2008...even though he promised Connecticut voters he would deliver the Whitehouse to the Democrats in 2008.

Why do Connecticut voters let him get away it?

When Joe lost the primary as a Democrate he on that day became a republican under an independants cloak.
Joe is shape shifter, outside of the sub base politics joe has been mostly appathetic toward Connecticut, he rears his head when there is a war to be fought in the middle east knowing full well the debacale that he has helped along is not winnable, I hate to say this but he now appears to be a jew with his thumb on the arabs, and he is pushing as hard as he can as to subjagate them to a permanate enemy status. joe being mostly a cold war menatilty guy is unable to conduct foreign policy politics with out an enemy first and formost in his thinking, his foriegn policy is one of colonialism wrapped in twentfirst centry clothing. He has become unimportant and pathetic, the next set of senate elections will see him removed from any position of authority as the democrates will not need him on any votes from that time forward, and he will slip uncerimoniously into retirerment after his term is up.
