A comment that almost went un-noticed~
"This story about "lesbian" Japanese monkeys is just another example of how the liberal media has bought into the lie that ladies can be homosexuals too. You see, the homosexual lobby wants us to believe this because it would make their lifestyle appear to be more normal.

I've never known a women who enjoys sex. It's just not in their nature. The homosexuals know this, so they spread this myth to dispel the notion that it's all just a bunch of super horny guys.

Being homosexual, they don't see the basic flaw in their propaganda. If they'd ever seen a woman naked, they'd know that ladies couldn't have sex with each other because they don't have "little soldiers!"

Heterosexually yours,

Gen. JC Christian, Patriot"

First of all, Bwahahahahahahaha! Most idiotic comment I've ever gotten!
Second, you didn't read the article.
Third, if you've never met a "women" who enjoys sex, you've never met a "women". Period.
Ask any female who visits this site if they don't enjoy sex.
Fourth, "Jesus' General", you apparently don't know as much about your CIC as you thought you did.
The Essenes teach that Jesus said it was okay for a woman to "lay down" with a woman as no seed is wasted.
Gospel of Saint Thomas, I believe.
They don't make a huge issue out of it, merely point out that Jesus didn't have hangups about it.
I suspect that he experimented with homosexuality at one point or other in his life as well. Probably during those years the bible conveniently omits.
Anyhow, thanks for the comment. You might realize by now that I don't suffer christians gladly.

"An underlying policy in defense and foreign affairs runs parallel to the War on Terrorism, which it preceded. If the White House and Pentagon have their way, it shall continue to operate in tandem with the War on Terrorism for years to come. This strategy calls for a major expansion of US military power around the globe to secure the peace . . . for 'America'. Its goals are to eliminate current regional rivals, such as Iraq, Iran and North Korea, and to discourage the rise of new ones, even among our friends, thereby protecting our vital interests and security via a worldwide network of American protectorates. In the long run, American preeminence as the sole superpower is to be extended as far into the new century as possible."

Bait And Switch type of thing.
It's a tactic that works--an example is Colin Powell first being a dove, and later becoming a hawk.
It was successful because when you have a dove in the White House that other doves and peaceniks like and respect go hawk-like, you'd tend to believe him more than if he had been hawk-like from the start..
It also helps the media to have a dove-hawk in the White House, they never have to go far to get "the other side of the coin".
I think that's a pretty clever tactic, actually.
Anyway, so you've got Bashir painting Jackson as a Monster and Povich repainting the portrait to Saint--all of which was planned ahead of time. Povich as host was simply a bad choice, as he lends Zero integrity to the project.
Ong's Hat: The Beginning - Egg Physics

Okay, so Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld had plans for Iraq long before 9/11, even sent a letter to Clinton urging him to use military force~ The 1998 Origins of the Bush Iraq War Drive
Fine.
"We believe the U.S. has the authority under existing UN resolutions to take the necessary steps, including military steps, to protect our vital interests in the Gulf."

....and just what are those "vital interests"?
"the safety of American troops in the region, of our friends and allies like Israel and the moderate Arab states, and a significant portion of the world's supply of oil will all be put at hazard."

First one-good reason, not vital. Second one-bah. They are only "friends and allies" for the moment. Everybody knows allies like these are fickle and highly undependable. Third one- Rummy himself says it's (partly) about oil. And that would really be okay if BushCo would only back up those uncharactaristic words about alternative energy sources. Time will tell on that, but I am not holding my breath. OilyOilmen are the largest, richest group of lobbyists in Washington. Everybody in the Administration is tied to it in one form or other. Hamid Karzai was an OilMan. Without Oil, war machines cannot function. It's not about how much the US consumes as a nation, but also as a military force. He who controls the oil controls the world, really. We cannot, of course, let Hussein control any of it, so perhaps it IS best in the hands of the American Oilies. But it cannot rightly be said that this conflict isn't about oil (if only in part).
Leopold ends with this~
"The existence of the Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz 'war' letters is just another reason to question the Bush Administration's desire to go to war with Iraq now instead of dealing with other pressing issues such as Al-Qaeda. Because the letters were written in 1998 it proves that this war was planned well before 9-11 and casts further doubt on the claims that Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9-11 terrorist attacks."

Actually, it doesn't. Just because the war was planned before Clinton packed his bags doesn't mean Hussein wasn't involved in the attacks. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't. Who cares? If he wasn't, does that mean he's a nice guy that should be left to his own devices?
Conclusion--I don't really see any "vital interests" in the Gulf. Hussein should have been dealt with when Pops had the chance, but alas, that gelatinous spine of his. So correct that error and get it over with already.

Urban Legends Reference Pages: Questionable Quotes (Hermann Goering)
Claim: Hermann Goering proclaimed that although "the people don't want war," they "can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders."
Status: True.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Lesbian Japanese monkeys challenge Darwin's assumptions
"The promiscuous sex life of lesbian Japanese monkeys is challenging one of the central tenets of Charles Darwin.

But after studying Japanese macaques in the wild, Dr Paul Vasey, of the University of Lethbridge, Canada, begs to differ. He found that bisexuality is common in females and that they often compete with males for sexual partners."

The Real Reasons for the Upcoming War in Iraq: A Macroeconomic and Geostrategic Analysis of the Unspoken Truth
"Although completely suppressed in the U.S. media, the answer to the Iraq enigma is simple yet shocking -- it is an oil currency war. The real reason for this upcoming war is this administration's goal of preventing further Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) momentum towards the euro as an oil transaction currency standard. However, in order to pre-empt OPEC, they need to gain geo-strategic control of Iraq along with its 2nd largest proven oil reserves. This lengthy essay will discuss the macroeconomics of the `petro-dollar' and the unpublicized but real threat to U.S. economic hegemony from the euro as an alternative oil transaction currency."

Truth About War
"Do our politicians ever lie to justify war?
It's true that Hussein is a brutal dictator, but that isn't why Bush wants to remove him. The whole truth is that our politicians have encouraged Hussein's brutality, thus showing that they have no quarrel with his behavior in principle. Read the evidence for this claim by clicking here.

It's true that Hussein has violated UN resolutions, but that isn't why Bush wants to remove him. The whole truth is that our own politicians have no real respect for international law, and have encouraged Hussein to violate these laws in the past. Read the evidence for this claim by clicking here.(If violations of international law justified war then we might have to invade Israel.)"

It's true that the Iraqis suffer under a brutal, oppressive regime, but that isn't why Bush wants to remove him.
If the Iraqis want liberation, they should be willing to fight--and die--for it.
Not hearing much about that though, even from Iraqi-Americans. Saddam may be Evil, but there's no way he could stop 20+ million from storming his palaces............even with bio-weapons.
And of course that would surely seal his Doom by polarizing the planet against him. Except maybe France. Now would be the perfect time for the Iraqis to stand up for themselves while the world has Iraq under the microscope.......
Perhaps they aren't willing because last time we said we'd back them up and instead abandoned them.
And we all know what happened next.

Update~ I just found this:Iraqi defence minister 'under house arrest'
"Saddam Hussein was last night reported to have placed his defence minister and close relative under house arrest in an extraordinary move apparently designed to prevent a coup.
Iraqi opposition newspapers, citing sources in Baghdad, yesterday claimed that the head of the Iraqi military, Lieutenant-General Sultan Hashim Ahmad al-Jabburi Tai, was now effectively a prisoner in his home in the capital."

So perhaps there's a quiet rebellion in the works. If so, I truly hope it works, and I hope the US backs up the opposition this time round.
Okay, that's enough of that for today.......
George W. Bush on sacrifice:

And please....GW Bush just now said "I don't want war, but my responsibility is the protection of the American people."
Again, this implies that if Saddam disarmed Right Now, we would not go to war.
Which means this has absolutely Nothing to do with liberating Iraqis. Senator McCain said it too~
"If Saddam disarmed tomorrow, he could stay in Baghdad, watch all the torture films and take all the Viagra he wants for as long as he wants."
It's never been about liberating anyone. It sounds good when tacked to the pro-war arguement, but isn't based on actual motives.

They flow, so to speak, from the top, with a chief executive who grew up steeped in the culture of Texas oil exploration and tried his hand at it himself; and a second-in-command who came to office with a multi-million dollar retirement package in hand from his post of CEO of Halliburton Oil. Once in office, the vice president developed an energy policy under the primary guidance of a cast of oil company executives whose identities he has gone to great lengths to withhold from public view.

Since taking office, the president and vice president have assembled a government peopled heavily with representatives from the oil culture they came from. These include Secretary of the Army Thomas White, a former vice president of Enron, and Secretary of Commerce Don Evans, former president of the oil exploration company Tom Brown, Inc., whose major stake in the company was worth $13 million by the time he took office."

One US rule for Israel, another for Saddam
"To raise this at any time, but especially now, will inevitably be considered to be anti-American and anti-Israeli, possibly even anti-Semitic. But it is none of these things. There is long-term legal and political inconsistency between the treatment of Israel and other countries in the region, and the greatest weakness in America's case on Iraq is that it shows no signs of acknowledging its history of favouritism.
Compliance in Israel is just as much a requirement as it is in Iraq."
Birth of a new Stonehenge theory
"It's a mystery that has puzzled historians for generations. But now perhaps the most extraordinary explanation of all has been put forward for the mysterious stone-circles of Stonehenge - that they bear an uncanny resemblance to the female sexual organs."

Scorpy: You are Scorpius. No one can say you're not
determined, and some may say you're obsessive-
but you're simply goal-oriented. You're bad to
the bone and proud of your evilness. You prefer
to be in command, and could really use a
facial.

Capitol Hill Blue
White House Source-"Right now, the worst thing that could occur for the Bush Administration's credibility is that nothing happens this weekend. I know that sounds terrible but we've got a lot riding on this."
The second occurance of an erroneous "terror alert".
There's a theory floating around that sounds reasonable- the "terror alert" was elevated to orange in anticipation of anti-war protests; an attempt to keep people home. Now that the protests are over, Ridge says the alert will be lowered sometime this week.

I don't participate in protests, BTW.

Google Buys Blogger.
It mattered more after I read this~
Google deserves your nomination for Big Brother of the Year
"Matt Cutts, a key Google engineer, used to work for the National Security Agency. Google wants to hire more people with security clearances, so that they can peddle their corporate assets to the spooks in Washington. "

I Google everything, and this site uses Blogger.
In an ironic twist, I couldn't find the original Google Big Brother article, so I Googled it.
In another ironic twist, I've tried to post this article twice, but Blogger is down,so let's Batch.

Well, I liked the socks.
And this made me a little dizzy and nauseous....
Sure, you are angry with France. Here, you can take out your frustrations on them with the Baff-O-Tron.
Maybe Blogger's working now, so let's end this batch with a Batch Of Bush Lies. That site is not in the BlogRoll, nor should it be.
All kinds of problems with Blogger today...looks like the switch to BlogStudio is inevitable.
