Yeah, the stock market is at record highs and gas is back to the low-low-low still higher than when Clinton was in office price of $2.50/gal, and we're building a fence so I can pick lettuce for my second job instead of some undeserving Mexican, all hail the Bush Boom!

Oh, it was a "joke" sez McCain.

DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - Arizona Sen. John McCain, a likely Republican presidential contender in 2008, joked on Wednesday he would "commit suicide" if Democrats win the Senate in November.

People Who Use Words

I was struck this morning by the contrast to be made. Serious journalism in the US.

"The next six months in Iraq--which will determine the prospects for democracy-building there--are the most important six months in U.S. foreign policy in a long, long time." Read below the fold...

50% of most competitive races have no paper trail, hence no recounts possible

Whoever said Republicans were incompetent? They've made elections really, really easy to steal:

Meanwhile, votes in about half of the 45 most competitive Congressional races, including contests in Florida, Georgia and Indiana, will be cast on electronic machines that provide no independent means of verification.

They Hate You, Dems

I was just saying, and stories like this only prove my point further. Wake up, Dems. Make media reform a priority, or forever fight an uphill battle with no armor or weapons.

New Bush Real Estate

Hmmm. Live links at this fascinating little post:

It has been reported that George W. Bush has recently purchased a 98,842 acre farm in Northern Paraguay. What on earth does the President of the United States need a 98,000+ acre farm in Northern Paraguay for? Read below the fold...

Goodnight, moon


The neighbors were demolishing their chimney before rebuilding it, so I snagged some bricks. I figure I'll use them for borders in the garden next year.

Creosote side down, of course. Hey, maybe the creasote will poison the blue bells' rhizomes next year! Read below the fold...

How odd. Bush has just made it much easier to declare martial law

Read the Kossack Diary. The money quote:

So now the President can send troops from Tennessee to quash what he deems a threat to civil order in Oregon, even if the governors of Tennessee and Oregon both object.

Back of the Bus for Queers

This kind of crap has to be opposed at every turn. I can see why some people would call it "reasonable" but it's no different than not working in an environment with black faces in the ads on the walls:

Evangelical Blues

When you give yourself over to a void, do not be surprised by the vast sucking sound you hear...

I wrote some lyrics about the manipulation of "true believers" (and yes, they usually give permission).

Clap your hands, rise up and sing out!
