What a fucking hypocrite

Bush has sunk to a new low--and he's already a champion at such sinking--with his "right"eous expressions of condolences on the death of the Pope. Only once in Bush's administration did the Pope's intervention become relevant, and Bush, bleeding from the lips to make war, cast aside the Pope's prayers that he not invade Iraq.

Bush is a man incapable of truth and principle. He's a monster, now, hopefully, seen as capable of anything--even lies and politics--while pretending to mourn over the death of a true spokesman of peace.

If there's an afterlife--as Bush and his minions claim--may Bush rot in Hell.


Here's the video of William Kristol's pie-ing during a speech at a college in Indiana--a Red State, BTW.

Is this the United States we want?

We're building military outposts throughout the world, holding onto territories by force of arms. Anyone who fails to see the parallels to all other previously failed empires is blind.

April Fool!

The price of gasoline hits new highs, the number of new jobs created plummets, inflation continues to increase, the stock market drops--and the deceased Terry Schiavo and the soon-to-be deceased Pope dominate the American news. The MSM in the second quarter of 2005 is carrying on in its new-found tradition: without insight, without truth, without genuine purpose except to entertain in the basest manner possible. For Bloomberg's story about today's economic developments, check out this story from a source that's decidedly pro-business.

These stories of lists of persons who're escorted out of Bush's "conversations" is old news, I know. But they trouble me still because nobody's complaining about them. Have we become so complacent about the loss of first amendment rights peaceably to assemble and express ourselves that it's no longer outrageous when those rights are obviously breached?

Riverbend remembers

Two years after the US invasion of Iraq, this woman blogger in Baghdad recalls the endless days and nights of shock and awe--and tells us how hard it is to be shocked and awed by the misery of occupation anymore.

Is it just me?

Or are there a few others out there who don't have a clue why the US peddles armaments to other nations, even momentarily "friendly" nations. I mean, whazzup with that?

Talk about your soft targets

These attacks on hospitals have got to stop. The Marines began last autumn's assault on Fallujah by storming the city's main hospital, the justification being that it was a source of figures and photos of dead Iraqis that revealed the extent of our devastation of the city by pre-invasion bombing. Anti-US propoganda, they said. Now we're doing it again, this time in Ramadi.

Happy Easter, everybody. He is risen. But too far, apparently.
