He mentioned Terrence Boyle twice.

 

Everyone should go find themselves a copy of "Fortunate Son," a book about George W. & family written By James Hatfield, a reformed ex-con who died after writing the book from a "drug overdose."

abortions could feed the hungry.

 

speaking of post 9/11, the U.S just purchsed many photos from satelite cameras over the middle east. Why? Too many civilian casualties and noone wants to burst USA's bubble. If they tried to hold those photos back the "legal" way, they knew the media would be barking at the rug. If ya got money mr bush, flaunt it!
