"First I will hack into this website (30 seconds), quick format the HD (90 sec.), Have it automatically Install a batch file (pre-written, no-time) that will short circuit the power supply, making the server explode(60 sec.). The explosion will trigger a number of other explosions and make the building catch on fire, and burn down to the ground (120 seconds). I go home and watch it all on the Ten o clock news."

It's a small addition to the original URL, and a small change to the overall theme. The reason for this is to try to draw more visitors here in hopes to get more socks sold while still providing interesting and fun links.
I will need to desist with political posts, or turn on the furnace again--it is my opinion that my opinions are potentially hurting our livelihood, and I can't abide that one bit.
The Chapel will close soon, so please do update that link to us, and please do continue to visit--nothing will change except the removal of political opinion.
I will be visiting all of our regulars that link to us to make sure you change that URL and name, and I will pester you endlessly if you don't! 8)

Israel Optimistic About $12 Billion More In US 'Loans'
For this amount of money, on top of the billions we've already "loaned" them, we should plant our flag and make it a US state.

Bill Back, the California party's vice chairman running for the top job, sent out an e-mail newsletter in 1999 that reproduced an essay that said 'history might have taken a better turn' if the South had won the Civil War and that 'the real damage to race relations in the South came not from slavery, but from Reconstruction, which would not have occurred if the South had won'".

Say what you will about the source, but....Double Standards, Dubious Morality In War On Terror
"North Korea breaks all its nuclear agreements with the United States, throws out UN inspectors and sets off to make a bomb a year, and President Bush says it's 'a diplomatic issue'. Iraq hands over a 12,000-page account of its weapons production and allows UN inspectors to roam all over the country, and - after they've found not a jam-jar of dangerous chemicals in 230 raids - President Bush announces that Iraq is a threat to America, has not disarmed and may have to be invaded."
The Independent Institute | The Lies We Are Told About Iraq
"The Bush administration’s confrontation with Iraq is as much a contest of credibility as it is of military force. Washington claims that Baghdad harbors ambitions of aggression, continues to develop and stockpile weapons of mass destruction and maintains ties to Al Qaeda. Lacking solid evidence, the public must weigh Saddam Hussein’s penchant for lies against the administration’s own record. Based on recent history, that’s not an easy choice."

You're going to criticize the source, aren't you?
Anyway, all governments lie, whether they are dictatorial or democratic. It's the Nature Of The Beast, and the current administration is certainly not an exception.

Jesus 'healed using cannabis'
"Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.
The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims."

If they’re all war criminals, then you’re probably George W. Bush."

Preemptive impeachment
Law professor stands ready to draft articles for any member of the House
"Article II Sec. 4 of the Constitution states that: 'The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.' Boyle says that waging a war of aggression is a crime under the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment and Principles. 'It's very clear,' he adds, 'if you read all the press reports, they are going to devastate Baghdad, a metropolitan area of 5 million people. The Nuremberg Charter clearly says the wanton devastation of a city is a Nuremberg war crime.'
We don't have to wait for the devastation of Baghdad to impeach the Bush cabal because they have already repudiated the Nuremberg Charter via the so-called Bush Doctrine of preventive war and pre-emptive attack."

Currently watching The Crooked E: The Unshredded Truth About Enron. So far I am not impressed. First of all, I was hoping for a documentary, not a drama. The acting is stiff and forced, the script is horrible, and Mike Farrell is in it.
Speaking of which, I'm thinking of sueing the Sci-Fi channel for two lost hours of my life watching that piece of crap Dragon Fighter. The basic premise was stolen from Reign Of Fire, the acting was worse than horrible. I wanted each and every character to be torn apart by that unforgivably shoddy CGI dragon. None of the special effects looked even remotely real enough to suspend disbelief. And Shit On a 'Fix, what's up with that editing? Like it was done on a home vcr. Even the foley work sucked-there's one scene where all the characters come running in to the lab, and when they all stop, you can still hear running footsteps. And the chick with the horrible, unplacable accent was dubbed in! And not even in sync!

Bush."

The James Donahue Column - Why Iraq? And Why Now?
"President George W. Bush says he personally believes Saddam Hussein has those weapons but neither he nor the UN weapons inspectors, who have been searching Iraqi buildings for over a month, have been able to prove it.
Yet even as we dispatch an armada of fighting ships, carriers, aircraft, bombers, troops and material into the Middle East in preparation for a big assault against a little country that has no apparent means of defending itself, the North Koreans are blatantly flexing an alarming nuclear muscle.



While North Korea is strongly suggesting plans to start building a nuclear arsenal, the United States is busy cranking up a massive war machine to attack Iraq because a dictator there might just possess obscure weapons of mass destruction.
President George W. Bush says he personally believes Saddam Hussein has those weapons but neither he nor the UN weapons inspectors, who have been searching Iraqi buildings for over a month, have been able to prove it.
Yet even as we dispatch an armada of fighting ships, carriers, aircraft, bombers, troops and material into the Middle East in preparation for a big assault against a little country that has no apparent means of defending itself, the North Koreans are blatantly flexing an alarming nuclear muscle.


It is obvious to this observer that Hussein does not want a confrontation with the United States, nor does he want the people of Iraq to suffer the fate of the citizens of Afghanistan when we went after the Al-Qaeda network there one year ago. Thousands of innocent civilians perished in our bombing assault.
Why aren't we positioning our naval armada off the coast of North Korea? Is it because the North Koreans offer a well-trained military armed with missiles that carry nuclear warheads? Is there a fear that somebody might get hurt there if we fight there?
I might suggest that the North Korean army is planning to take advantage of our military adventures in the Middle East and do some empire building when we are in no position to stop it. The fact that the North Koreans are starving might be the driving force behind their actions."

My problem is how Bush picks which vicious dictator to war with and which to negotiate with.
It's just plain hypocritical. Kim Jong II is just as heartless when it comes to his countrypersons as Saddam is. He's got the bomb, Saddam might. Bush wasn't willing to negotiate with the Taliban for the release of OBL, yet he's willing to negotiate with NK who poses the most immediate threat to THE WORLD, not just the US.
Interesting~the FBI admits to lying?
The case of the five vanishing suspects
"Yesterday, the FBI admitted that the most important ingredient in the story -- that is, the proof -- is nowhere to be found: 'There is no border-crossing information that would say they're here,' FBI spokesman Ed Cogswell said. 'And to say they came in from Canada is pure speculation.'
The FBI admitted that there was no proof that the five had come from Canada, that they had crossed the border, or that they were connected with terrorism.
Asked what might have triggered the initial FBI allegation about the five Middle Eastern men entering the U.S. from Canada, the Mountie replied caustically: 'It was a slow week at the White House. They needed something to stir the pot because nothing was happening in Iraq.'"

FBI agents say White House scripting 'hysterics' for political effect
"Don't misunderstand, there is a real terrorist threat to this country," an FBI agent told CHB. But, the agent continued, "every time we go public with one of these phony 'heightened state of alerts,' it just numbs the public against the day when we have another real alert."
CHB reported that FBI and CIA sources said a recent White House memo listing the war on terrorism as a definitive political advantage and fund-raising tool is just one of many documents discussing how to best utilize the terrorist threat.

Why al-Qaeda is winning
"The war against terrorism won't be won until the West grasps the fact that we are fighting a lethal idea rather than a tangible enemy."

Yes, the war on "terror" is really an abstract, as was the war on drugs.
And if (I mean after) we win the War on Terror? Please let's engage in a War on Crankiness. Or perhaps a War On Lethargy or Rude Shoppers.
Forget about a War on PMS--it's a battle that can't be won.
