Semi-Random Blog Comment of the Day

In the comments section (bold added by moi) regarding Digby's post Moral Boundries:

How is it possible that Bush can blather on about his reverence for life and his entire audience - including the press - doesn't just puke at the hypocrisy? We already know, as Derelict points out, that once a baby is born, they don't give a fuck about it. Now we also know - in case we were having trouble quantifying it -that American embryos bound for a garbage dumpster qualify as sacred life, whereas innocent civilians in Iraq and now Lebanon (since we appear to be co-sponsoring that destruction)are worth absolutely nothing.

Shooting Things in the Face Again

This is probably an entirely insignificant story. You are excused in advance for not reading it, but god damn if I can let it go without any notice whatsoever. It's just such a quintessential "Bush Appointee Sleaze" tale...sort of like Mike "Mustang" Brown but with the only casualty being a decrepit old buffalo rather than thousands of dead people in New Orleans.

Sound interesting after all maybe? Read on. Read below the fold...

For the Children of the Middle East

Being a bleeding heart liberal, I felt I just had to sing an acapella version of Pete Seeger's "Where Have All the Flowers Gone"--this audio is the result of that desire. It's a reminder of all the loss that is buried in our world. Read below the fold...

Dead Children Equations

Via Shake's Sis, our Ambassador to the UN John "I am the Walrus" Bolton:

…"I think it would be a mistake to ascribe moral equivalence to civilians who die as the direct result of malicious terrorist acts," he added, while defending as "self-defense" Israel's military action, which has had "the tragic and unfortunate consequence of civilian deaths".

Studs Terkel Wins Peace Prize

No, alas, not that Nobel one....yet. Turns out there's a growth trend in peace prizes, one of the more promising developments of our current dark age. Via the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago-based writer and oral historian Studs Terkel has been awarded the first Dayton Literary Peace Prize, an outgrowth of the Dayton Peace Prize that commemorates the 1995 agreement that ended the war in Bosnia. Read below the fold...

Off to see the Wizard ...

Or take some more Texas Forest Service classes. How are y'all's Community Emergency Response Teams coming along? Or even your getaway kits, for the last-minute weekend escape?

'Cause trust me, kids -- the days of real vacations are as dead as the days of the 40 hour workweek, health insurance, and old-age pensions that paid enough you weren't eyeing the cat's food ... fun piece of news on NPR's Marketplace this a.m. == the sole and only US transportation manufacturer nowadays posting a profit is ... Harley Davidson. They're selling like hotcakes overseas, and planning a dealership in China. Read below the fold...

"I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn’t do my job."

So, apparently God says "Shit'"!

Is it OK for us to say Fuck, now?

Actually, God's not saying "shit."

Light to no posting from me for the next few days as I attempt to finish some unfinished business...

Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy - The Gays

"The Gays," performed by The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

(to the tune of Fastball's "The Way")

They made up their minds

And started amending

They blew off all important work that day

So thinly veiled

The hate that they were sending

They're barely disguising

That they're demonizing the gays

They drank their Kool-Aid

And started revising

The Bill of Rights to keep new rights at bay

It don't take morals

It just takes moralizing

Legitimizing
