Hi Pretty Lady 

There's nothing more sexy than a girl that can match your wit in an intelligent conversation, nothing more desirable than a selfless woman, nothing more admirable than a loving, pure, and kind soul... I believe you are all of the above. You have yet to prove me wrong.

The storm's a brewin' 

This is from Tom's post the other day.... I'm sure he won't mind.


You can feel it, like a thunderstorm just off the edge of the horizon, when the leaves on the trees curl inward and the air feels charged and the hair stands up on your arm.

Or maybe it's a drumbeat that you hear in the distance, growing louder so slowly that you don't even really notice until suddenly you realize some moron is banging on a snare drum next to your ear: we’ve got to re-elect George W. Bush because of, um, you know. The war on terror! And stuff.

I know: any rational person would look at Bush’s record in the war on terror so far and run screaming to any other candidate. But we’re not talking about rationality here. We’re talking about appeals to the base emotions of fear and anger.

And you can bet Karl Rove's been planning to roll this one out for about one year and eleven months now.

It’s already starting to rear its ugly head on the right wing blogs, which have kind of become the farm team of stupid right wing talking points (or maybe more accurately the farm team’s farm team). And it peers out in this excruciatingly wrong-headed (is there any other kind?) Wall Street Journal editorial about the need to install Ahmed Chalabi as our chosen puppet-leader in Iraq:

Open debate is obviously meaningless to those whose only experience of government is ruthless autocracy. What they think they see is division and fear--and these encourage a return to their earlier perception of American degeneracy. Such a return could have dangerous consequences, including a renewal and extension of terrorist attacks in America. By terrorist attacks, they believe, they will encourage those whose response is to say, "Let's get out of here"--perhaps even procure the election of a new administration dedicated to this policy.

Get it? The terrorists want you to vote Democratic.


I wanna laugh... I wanna cry.... I'm feel like that nutcase in the aslyum, delusional from fear, laughing maniacally at my own impending doom.

No time to post anymore.... 

My hobby as a blogger was pretty short-lived. I read so many blogs for so long, I felt like it was time for me to vent... even though no one reads these things. I think I'll be making a comeback in the near future, but for now, I bid you all good day

Is this not patriotic enough? 

It's hard to ignore the sentiment that being anti-war is equivalent to being unpatriotic. I, for one, take an incredible amount of offense to anyone questioning my patriotism. There is nothing unpatriotic about upholding your constitutional rights and preserving global peace. Tom Paine brings us this story on yet another troop to die in this unjust war, one who supported firmly an anti-war campaign, but entered Iraq to preseve peace and defend freedom.

"I believe in the United States. I believe in the Constitution. I think it's perhaps one of the greatest documents ever written. I believe in the idea that we the people are sovereign and we determine our own destiny. We have a democracy and the Bill of Rights and freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and due process. Until the world is such a place that we can really live without the military, individual Americans have to step up and they have to serve."

The Bush administration, he claimed, had not made a credible case for war with Iraq, and was violating constitutional principles by sending troops into combat. He spoke of the Declaration of Independence, and how its writers vowed to be free of England, where their lives were ruled and determined by one man. "The constant rhetoric of the administration is that there's going to be one person who decides when we go to war," he said, "and that is such a blatant violation of every constitutional principle that our founding fathers came up with."

"But even beyond that, it's ‘we the people’ that this nation is about," he continued. "It isn't about politics or personal agendas or political agendas or economic agendas. And I believe that this war is not the right thing for America because it hasn't yet been proven conclusively that there is a threat to ‘we the people’ -- and I think that is the sole determining factor as to whether or not this nation should ever go to war."

--snip--

Before he was deployed, John wrote a final letter as part of his will.

"That I have died means I have failed to achieve the one thing in life I truly longed to give the world -- peace," the letter reads. "The plight of human suffering consumed me and I dedicated much to trying to find the ideas that might lead humankind toward alleviating it for all. It was a quest which was inextricably intertwined with my quest for freedom. If you know anything about me you know that. Understand it and come to understand how the suffering of others tormented my soul. Then seek to honor my memory by trying to achieve what I could not."


There's not much more I can add to that. It seems like we owe "John" his dying wish. And while we're at it, let's please bring these poor troops home.

The Savage Weiner gets canned 

It was just a matter of time... and it couldn't have happened any sooner. Here's Weiner's comments to a gay caller calling into to his MSNBC show last Saturday:



"So you're one of those sodomists. Are you a sodomite?" Savage asked.

The caller replied: "Yes, I am."

"Oh, you're one of the sodomites," Savage said. "You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today, go eat a sausage and choke on it."


Of course MSNBC finally canned him -- but then again, those jerks should never have hired this disgrace to humanity in the first place. I know this is old news... it shows how much I've been paying attention this week -- I've been spending too much time at the topless bars with all of my bisexual and lesbian girlfriends. But because of my sheer hatred for the man, I had to shed some light on this post-haste

A Day at the Races 

A beautiful metaphor about our faith and loyalty to the almighty Dubya:


A tortured, obvious and over-extended metaphor.


This Just IN: 

At Heathrow Airport today, an individual later discovered to be a
public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in
possession of a compass, a protractor, and a graphical calculator.

Authorities believe he is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement, which has struck
terror into the lives of many for generations. He is being charged with carrying weapons of maths instruction


Thank You Tom Ridge.... I can finally sleep at night thanks to your dilligent efforts in routing out the terrible evils of the world.

Cheezy, yes, I know.

Back from a long haitus 

And it felt GREAT to escape the news, this blog, and everything else that's been giving me friggin' Outrage Overload. I've added a little counter on the bottom of the page for the costs of war in Iraq. Go check out their site here. This link via Bob Harris over at This Modern World. I'm still on vacation, so I'm just gonna steal his post regarding how important this site is:

One man's opinion, but I think this should be forwarded as widely as possible.

People too damn busy to follow the news closely -- and in this economy, that's my explanation for so many people thinking WMDs were actually found, etc. -- can sure as hell understand:

hundreds of dead Americans, thousands of dead Iraqis
both still dying in quantity, Iraqi hostility growing
the main rationale now plainly a lie
no plan for the promised democracy
real terrorism ignored, Al-Qaeda regrouping, America still unprepared...

all for just $70 billion, plus another quarter-million a minute
which will eventually come out of our
social security, medicare, education, and other public services.
