Random Musings of an Unfit Human

Back so soon?

Damn, now I'm on a roll...my blood is boiling as I read this article about another retired general who speaks out against Rumsfeld. What drives me nuts is that this is a punative administration. If General Newbold, or any other general, would speak out while in active duty, they would be punished, or perhaps even character assassinated. Dubya's people don't debate, they attack, they discredit.

I was speaking to a coworker earlier who is so far up Dubya's ass he can taste what Georgie had for dinner and on this topic he not only agree, but he has come to believe that it is the RIGHT thing to do. I fully admit that it is the common thing to do, but that sure as fuck doesn't make it right.

Talk about issues. Debate them. Look at my point of view and if you don't like it then you are more than welcome to either comment on it or even ignore me. But don't attack my history in an attempt to invalidate my opinion.

Coming Home

Yeah, it has been a while, hasn't it? I would love to say that I have had nothing to add to this digital cacophony we call the internet, but I've posted my ass off on other sites. Why haven't I updated this? Who the hell knows. Let's blame it on lazyness, ok?

Here are some things that have interested me...

The ongoing fight between evolution and intelligent design. We are going back to the monkey trials, but in reverse. Does creationism have a place in the modern science class?

Dubya's ongoing delusions. Wow, this guy just amazes me daily. He is completely oblivious about the realities of the world around him, the consequences of his actions, and his own popularity.

This is from the Post, so take your prescribed grain(s) of salt before reading, but it is certainly an interesting perspective...http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/blog/2006/04/10/BL2006041000588.html

What we do know is that he authorized the release of the Plame information. Legal or not, it is absolutely true that he lied. He is somewhere between a hypocrite and a criminal at this point. Yet he continues, with blinders on, to charge full on at Iran. Whether it will be another failed invasion or a series of tacticle nuke strikes it will be a disaster in my honest opinion.

I'll try to post more soon.
