2:30 pm - Fantastic!
As if the republicans don't have enough dough, now they're using taxpayer dollars! Go to http://www.ustreas.gov/press/releases/js1313.htm and read the bottom. Now go to http://www.rnc.org/News/Read.aspx?ID=4069 and read down near the bottom. Boy, am I glad I didn't pay any taxes this year.

8:39 pm - the end?
OK, so I may be suspending writing here for a while. But never fear, I will still be an unflappable web presence at turkeysub.com. I was just looking for more. More of your mom. Hell yeah!

From Uncle Bob:

You know how some big cities have a lane on their interstates that is designated for car poolers only, and that you must have at least two people in the car in order to use that lane which usually moves faster than the other lanes?


Yeah?


Well I think my city needs to think about designating the far left lane of the interstate as the "People Who Really Need To Hurry Up And Get Home Before They Shit Their Pants" Lane.


...At least I felt that way at 5:10 p.m. yesterday.





I hear ya, big fella.

If anyone knows of a free (or relatively cheap) webhosting solution that has no ads and offers CGI and PERL (I'm thinking of trying movable type) then let me know.

"We will accept no outcome but victory," the President said.

Minutes before the speech, an internal television monitor at the White House showed the President pumping his fist.

"Feels good," he said.

1:24 am - Chemical weapons and other hypocrisies
It's nice that when the chemical plant that was captured was determined to not be a weapon site, no one ran the story. Especially considering how the mainstream media was so happy to speculate that this was justification for the war. It's great too, that we are using napalm, which was banned as a chemical weapon in 1980.

"It is now estimated the hill was hit so badly by missiles, artillery and by the Air Force, that they shaved a couple of feet off it. And anything that was up there that was left after all the explosions was then hit with napalm. And that pretty much put an end to any Iraqi operations up on that hill." From CNN.

This has (obviously) been denied by the pentagon, but the marine officers that led the assault on Safwan Hill confirm that napalm was indeed used.

As a sidenote, while Rummy is saying that Iraq broke the Geneva Conventions by showing American POW's faces on TV "for the purpose of parading them" around, US media has done the same thing with Iraqi POWs. Not that it's right in either case, but that's like throwing a rock at your brother and then getting mad when he picks it up and throws it right back at you.

Man, I hope this war ends soon.

This is great, it provides some much needed comic relief courtesy of Homeland Security. The best part is that all the graphics really are taken from the government site (sorry about all the pop-ups).

This is a pretty good progress report, compiled from many sources. Relatively unbiased.

Let's hope we bring every American soldier home safely, with a minimum loss of Iraqi life. God help us.

So I went to the protest on Saturday. The Peace and Social Justice group that I'm in was supposed to meet at the public library, but there were too many people there for us to find each other, so it was just Jody, Jasmine and me (and about 500,000 others). It was spectacular, given how cold it was and the bullshit the police was pulling that we had as many people as we did (and there actually were 500,000, not the 100,000 mainstream media is reporting - first avenue full to the gills for thirty blocks, second, third, and Lex packed as well with people angry that the police wouldn't let anyone go east-west and that they were charging the crowd on horseback [how's that for a run-on sentence?]). All in all, a strong message that I'm sure Bush will ignore in the end. Hopefully though, he puts some consideration to the fact that this many people are angry enough to go outside for hours in the single-digit cold and be crushed and trampled and yelled at and told to "get a job you fucking hippie" and wait and wait and wait and eventually still not be able to get to the actual protest. I hope he thinks about that. I hope if he does keep talking all this trash, it's just to save face as he stops the war machine and tries to rebuild the alliances he's currently destroying. One can always dream, right?

It's bad enough that Bush said "Noo-kyoo-lar" every time in his state of the union address. It's bad enough that he kept insisting that Iraq had Nookyoolar weapons, even when ElBaradei and the IAEA said no chance in hell they had these weapons, and give us two months and we'll give you 100% certainty. I read Mr. Blix' report and found it to be rather supportive of continued inspections. Now Mr. Blix is pissed that Bush is twisting his words for Bush's gain.

Shamelessly ripped from suckasspoems:


If You're Happy And You Know It Bomb Iraq
by John Robbins


If you cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq.
If the markets are a drama, bomb Iraq.
If the terrorists are frisky,
Pakistan is looking shifty,
North Korea is too risky,
Bomb Iraq.

If we have no allies with us, bomb Iraq.
If we think that someone's dissed us, bomb Iraq.
So to hell with the inspections,
Let's look tough for the elections,
Close your mind and take directions,
Bomb Iraq.

It's pre-emptive non-aggression, bomb Iraq.
To prevent this mass destruction, bomb Iraq.
They've got weapons we can't see,
And that's all the proof we need,
If they're not there, they must be there,
Bomb Iraq.

If you never were elected, bomb Iraq.
If your mood is quite dejected, bomb Iraq.
If you think Saddam's gone mad,
With the weapons that he had,
And he tried to kill your dad,
Bomb Iraq.

If corporate fraud is growin', bomb Iraq.
If your ties to it are showin', bomb Iraq.
If your politics are sleazy,
And hiding that ain't easy,
And your manhood's getting queasy,
Bomb Iraq.

Fall in line and follow orders, bomb Iraq.
For our might knows not our borders, bomb Iraq.
Disagree? We'll call it treason,
Let's make war not love this season,
Even if we have no reason,
Bomb Iraq.

Man, it's been a while, eh? I've been living a pretty boring life recently. Studying and school and crappola. The hockey team's still doing well, and we've been getting vulgar e-mails and idiots shouting at us at our peace protests. Um, protesting for peace, not protesting peace that is. Other than that, nothin'.

Once again I've been trying to get back into doing creative things. I revived an old site here, so check it out. There's only two things on there now, but I'd like to put more up as time goes by (especially if I can find the time to start messing with flash seriously again). Anyway, your mom.
