A Military Career Distinguished Only by Favoritism
"With two years left in his six-year obligation to the Texas Air National Guard, 1st Lt. George W. Bush was mysteriously suspended from flight - and never again reported for a single day of duty.
Contrary to Bush's emphatic statements and several published reports, Bush never actually reported in person for the last two years of his service -- in direct violation of two separate written orders. Moreover, the lack of punishment for this misconduct represents the crowning achievement of a military career distinguished only by favoritism."

Pravda.RU Afghanistan Goes Back to Taliban Rules
"There has not been a lot of news from Afghanistan lately. The events around Iraq and North Korea pushed all other news into the background, including Afghanistan news. Yet, there are very interesting events going on in the former Taliban patrimonial estate. Afghanistan currently works on its Constitutions, which looks like the set of Taliban rules. It does not stipulate the separation of religion and state. [It does not] contain a paragraph about equal rights for men and women."

Did you know that in the US, paying taxes is not manditory but rather voluntary?
"If you're worrying about income taxes you think you owe the government - stop worrying because legally you don't 'owe' the government one dime, since there's no law requiring anyone to pay income tax. It doesn't matter if you earned millions in salaries, fees, commissions, gambling and lottery winnings etc., and additional millions in stock and other kinds of trading profits. For income tax purposes, you can legally report 'zero' income and pay no income taxes regardless of how much you might have earned."

Ruler of the Universe
Sylvain has ruled the universe since Fri Jan 17 04:43:35 2003 (Central)
During this time, I placed bubbles around each and every continent. What happens within whatever bubble you happen to be in is entirely up to you, but you cannot affect any of the other bubbles physically. If you want to blow up everything and everyone within your bubble, go for it, I don't care. I do this because it's obvious nobody remembers how to Play Nice or Share. So you are all relegated to your own bubble to do with it what you will. It's not my fault if your bubble is mostly desert, doesn't have oil or good opium-growing soil. You are not allowed to trade with other bubbles. Go ahead and drill your own land for that oil and see how far it gets you.
Obviously, Israel is on it's own now. Good luck with that.
And this is the part where I get bored with Earthly Doings and work on the better civilizations in this universe I get to rule. Humans are a failed experiment to me now.............
Too Easy. I'm actually suprised.
Debunking The War For Oil Theory - Right Wing News
"The only way we could insure that we would still have access to Iraq's oil decades from now would be to make them into a US colony with a puppet ruler who actually takes orders from us. Is there anyone out there who actually thinks this is going to happen despite the fact that we're not doing it anywhere else in the world today?"

One word~ Afghanistan.
Hamed Karzai, who used to support the Taleban is a Unocal man who takes orders from us, despite outward appearances. Even I can figure that out.
Anyway, the basic premise of this "debunking" (which does no such thing) is that the US need not attack Iraq to affect oil prices, it can be as easily done by peaceful means. Of course it's not all about oil, only partly.
"-- We can't be going to war to get Saddam to sell us oil because he already does."
not about buying, about controlling.
"-- Do we want him to sell us MORE oil? Well then all we'd have to do is ask. Iraq is desperate to acquire more revenue."
not about buying, about controlling.
See, what Hawkins fails to bring into the argument is the fact that not only the US needs oil, the world does. The entire civilized world depends on oil. To say it's not about oil even in part is completely naive, and coming from me, that's saying a lot.
The War On Iraq is about
Deposing a dictator
so we can
clear out of the hotter ME spots--Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc
so we can
deal with them as they deserve
and then we can
control the ME oil that the WORLD consumes.
Afghanistan was Step One. The Caspian Pipeline.
No, the US doesn't really profit from that venture outright, but guess who does?
Venezuela is another area of interest, though vastly under-reported.
And it's not about US interest in that oil, it's about deep relationships within the multinationals that control the flow of goods, oil on the top of the inventory, that stand to profit.Those in power stand to make the Big Coin, not just from oil, but from assuring the war machine continues to roll. Bush's family alone is going to clean up and the whole affair.
In the end, Hawkins is right; it's not about oil, it's about control, and oil is only a part of the larger picture.
It's not about US consumption of oil, it's about WORLD consumption.

State of the Union... Not Good
"The records show that the Bush committee spent a total of $13.8 million to frustrate the recount of Florida's votes and secure the state's crucial electoral votes for Bush. By contrast, the Gore recount operation spent $3.2 million, about one quarter of the Bush total. Bush spent more just on lawyers - - $4.4 million - - than Gore did on his entire effort."

Dear Sean Hannity,
You need to know that it's entirely Okay to be a homosexual and a catholic neo-conservative. If people pick on you for it, well, that's their narrow-minded problem.
I realize you consider Bush a hot piece of man-meat, and it's pretty obvious what's going on between you and Ollie North, but I watch Fox for "news", regardless of the fact that it is neither "fair" nor "balanced", so I ask that you turn your flame down a little and save that stuff for your radio show, which I do not listen to.
I've learned to tolerate the fact that you start each H&C show with "liberals! liberals! Boo-Hoo!" before the Clinton-bashing begins, but the superfluous bedroom eyes you give all your neocon guests is just too much for me. Keep it at home, can you?

In 37 years, I have worn approximately 9620 pairs of socks, and have owned approximately 1110 pairs of socks.
Look, people. Socks are very important. I never really knew how important they could really be until Niq went into the sock biz. Now, and I really mean this, I cannot do without the socks she sells. They are simply the best thing to ever happen to feet.Comfortable, functional, fashionable... My favorites are the long socks, especially in this weather. I feel like I could survive the Apocalypse in these, and they really are "unisex". Bet they'd be great for camping...we haven't tried them out in those conditions yet. Another good choice for that~ the Boot Socks.
I also wear the striped variety and my personal favorite--on her-- are the Top Stripes. So damn sexy...........these too.

It's not really that Frist experimented on cats so much as his statement about it: "I was going a little crazy."

"What's with this Smart/Hip/Dumb/Unhip thing?
I'm an amateur sociologist, and S/H/D/U theory is the pinnacle of my amateur sociological accomplishments. Y'see, I believe young urbanites can be divided into four basic categories: Smart/Hip, Dumb/Hip, Smart/Unhip and Dumb/Unhip. Contrary to popular belief, I am not judging people's relative worth to humanity. Someone D/U can be just as valuable and great a person as someone S/H -- often more so. But if you look around enough, you'll find most people under a certain age in large cities tend to fall roughly into a group. Anybody wearing librarian glasses is probably S/H, for example. Anybody wearing a frat T-shirt is probably D/U."

The United States of America has gone mad
"The imminent war was planned years before bin Laden struck, but it was he who made it possible. Without bin Laden, the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as how it came to be elected in the first place; Enron; its shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; its reckless disregard for the world’s poor, the ecology and a raft of unilaterally abrogated international treaties. They might also have to be telling us why they support Israel in its continuing disregard for UN resolutions."

"Boris Bobylev says that the boy considers himself the cause of the ignitions, as “there are red balls in his eyes and in the head, the balls spring out and set everything on fire.” Relatives of the boy say that not long before the fire they saw a bright red glow similar to a laser ray going from the boy. This unusual glow was flying about the house chaotically, sometimes it split into several small particles. When it touched the furniture, everything was on fire. Several days ago Igor told his mother that he saw blue and green balls, but the woman believed it was a joke."
