Major League Baseball's ALLSTAR Game in San Francisco

It's the 78th ALLSTARS Baseball Game being played tonight at A,T & T Park in beautiful San Francisco, California. The first pitchi is scheduled for 542PM Pacific time with the American League's Dan Haren of the Oakland A's and San Diego's Jake Peavy facing off as pitchers in this traditional game competition between the American League and the National League.

This year's game features stars such as Barry Bonds, who is just 4 HR short of matching Hank Aaron's home run record. Another star is Ken Griffey, Jr. who just 10 years ago was believed by experts to be on track to break Aaron's record. Between Aaron and Bonds there are 1,337 hits between them!

Prince Fielder, of the Milwaukee Brewers is another star. He's young and plays the game well. He is recognized as an outstanding first baseman. He's respected by his team mates and considered by many to be a leader amongst his peers. He's also the son of Cecil Fielder a Major League Baseball star in his own right.

There is the promise in tonight's game of National League talented youth. The NL has taken quite a beating at these annual meetings between the leagues. This time things could be different, and the difference could be found in the skills of the young athletes featured on the NL side.

The Case For Impeachment: PLAMEGATE

YouThinkWhat proudly presents another article of political opinion by Dr. C. von Blum.

History, during the hysteria focused run up to the long ill-prepared invasion of Iraq. We were prodded by concocted pseudo-intelligence implying that Iraq was actively engaged in the production of weapons of mass destruction. Pursuant to this pile of malarkey, Former ambassador Joe Wilson was dispatched to Nigeria to assess claims that Niger was supplying weapons grade yellow-cake Uranium to Iraq. Mr. Wilson found no evidence of this, and so reported in an editorial in , I believe the New York Times.

This was not precisely what the administration wanted to hear, although they could hardly have expected anything different.

Incensed by this, Cheney ordered the secret identity of Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, a CIA covert agent, be leaked to the press.

The order was executed by Richard Armitage, Karl Rove, and others. This is treason without ambiguity. What followed was a public airing of most of the sordid details of the pernicious act, unleashing a Department of Justice investigation into the source of the leak.

I’m sure we all recall the rhetoric from the Chimp-in-Chief that the wrongdoers would be found and would sacrifice their positions.

Much testimony was taken by the prosecutorial staff and a grand jury, which resulted in the indictment and conviction of Irwin Lewis (Scooter) Libby the vice President’s Chief of Staff, on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.

Much speculation ensued as to whether or not the perpetrator would be pardoned.

His sentence, as you know, was commuted by the president in advance of his incarceration, but the fine ($250,000) was not rescinded, nor the provision for probation following release.

It now appears this action is out of synch with the law in this matter, since no mechanism exists for post incarceration supervision for one who has served no time. The result is Libby walks and his defense fund pays his fine. This is an impeachable offense. A wink is as good as a nod. This was a clear quid-pro-quo for keeping the secret it was the President and Vice President who had committed treason.
