Maybe I've got a sick mind or maybe I'm just bored.......

But I love to pile stuff up on my cat. She's so sweet, she just lays there and puts up with me.
I feel better now too since I found out that others have the same affliction. Nice to have a support group when you need it.

Thanksgiving Prayer

Thanks for the wild turkey and
the passenger pigeons, destined
to be shit out through wholesome
American guts.

Thanks for a continent to despoil
and poison.

Thanks for Indians to provide a
modicum of challenge and

Thanks for vast herds of bison to
kill and skin leaving the
carcasses to rot.

Thanks for bounties on wolves
and coyotes.

Thanks for the American dream,
To vulgarize and to falsify until
the bare lies shine through.

Thanks for the KKK.

For nigger-killin' lawmen,
feelin' their notches.

For decent church-goin' women,
with their mean, pinched, bitter,
evil faces.

Thanks for "Kill a Queer for
Christ" stickers.

Thanks for laboratory AIDS.

Thanks for Prohibition and the
war against drugs.

Thanks for a country where
nobody's allowed to mind the
own business.

Thanks for a nation of finks.

Yes, thanks for all the
memories-- all right let's see
your arms!

You always were a headache and
you always were a bore.

Thanks for the last and greatest
betrayal of the last and greatest
of human dreams.

These guys are heros.

Freeway blogging is a lot of fun but not heroic. I don't think I've come close yet to seriously getting arrested. The men in the picture have just been convicted to over a year in jail AND a $17,000@ fine for blogging an ICBM site in North Carolina. think of them on Thanksgiving.
More pictures here.

Sailors warning.....

I've been making a lot of noise lately about impeachment, indictment and incarceration of the bushies and I havn't changed my mind about that, but ultimately we need to think beyond the immediate future if we are to change things for the better. We must keep in mind that a portion of the people who voted to oust the rethugs are not anti-war, they are anti-losing war. They are the ones whom we must direct our debates towards as to the futility of war. The truth is war is useless, it is NOT profitable, it is NOT glorious, and the biggest losers are ALWAYS the civilians. The USA needs to re-tool their foreign policy philosophy towards a more peaceful and mutually beneficial nature and quit the old ways of arming and counter-arming other countries as a means of CONTROLLING the situation, because that method never works and ALWAYS comes around as BLOWBACK to our own detriment.
There's an article I read this morning, and I saw a little bit of myself in it. I can't say I agree totally but it does give some food for thought..........

On the one hand, there is good reason for the passion that many of us feel about going after these Bushites to bring them low. We are rightly enraged at their lies, their crimes, their arrogance, their wanton disregard of any value other than sating their lust for power and wealth without limits. It is doubtful that any holders of the highest offices of the land have ever, in the course of more than two centuries of American history, been more deserving of impeachment. And so lawless has this administration been that even impeachment may not satisfy all the rightful demands of justice.

At the same time, we need to understand that our rage and our urge to avenge the wrongs done to us and our country, however justified, is also a manifestation of a pernicious characteristic of evil: that its patterns are contagious...........more

Cosmic baby factory.........

Every once in a while I need a good head cleanout and one of my favorite ways of doing that is to look at the stars. It makes me feel small and insignificant , kind of like how it feels to be out in the great American desert where it is obvious to all but the most oblivious that we humans are just a speck waiting to be blown in the wind by forces way beyond our control.
So if you have clear skies tonight, go out and check the southeast portion of the sky. There you'll see the Orion constellation rising. There's what appears to be a star in the middle for the sword sheath but if you have even just a decent pair of binoculars, the view will astound you. A huge gas cloud with stars in all phases of formation, one of the prettiest sites you'll ever see. (better than the pictures)
Orion appears on the horizon just before midnight during this time of year. If it's too late for you right now, wait a couple of months when it will be up there all night. One of the most spectacular constellations in the winter sky.

Rememberance Day

Carl Sandburg

Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo.
Shovel them under and let me work...
I am the grass; I cover all.

And pile them high at Gettysburg
And pile them high at Ypres and Verdun.
Shovel them under and let me work.
Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor:
What place is this?
Where are we now?

I am the grass.
Let me work.

Arrest bush!

The following is an email sent today to the DNC. I strongly urge everyone to do the same, if you don't have time you can use mine.

Dear Madame Speaker
It comes with great dismay, the news that you intend to reconcile with Mr. bush. Your elevation to Speaker of the House attributable to the great grass roots movement behind the Blue Tsunami that swept the republicans out of office on election day. The people of the grass roots movement believe bush to be a criminal of the highest order and feel that he belongs in jail. I know I speak for many who consider bush to be a mass murderer as well as a fraud in that he lied to the American public in his quest for approval to wage war against Iraq. He is also guilty of violating his oath of office by undermining the very Constitution that he swore to protect and uphold. Mr. bush holds no great love for our country and in fact despises the very priciples it stands for and should therefore be considered a traitor. Ms. Pelosi I ask you in the name of justice to remove Mr. bush from office. To continue to work with him is to be an accomplice to his crimes. Please do the right thing, and see to it that justice is served so that the United States of America can once again take its rightful place in the world as the leader of democratic ideals and freedom. We the people delivered a mandate to our government on November 7th and we insist that you carry it to fruition.
Thank you

Pat liked the idea so here's her contribution,

Madame Speaker,

The Grass Roots movement was well aware directly after 9-11 that the Bush administration's assertions about Iraq were false.

The Neocons had been pushing for action against Iraq for years. They were looking for an excuse that would generate reaction from the public. 9-11 was a perfect happenstance for that response. However, even though the adminstration DID KNOW that there were threats to use planes as bombs by terrorists, the adminstration appointees within the FAA struck language that would have changed crew response to a hijacking. Bush choose what his advisors suggested, do nothing.

I witnessed a FAA adminstration striking the language of a draft of regulations that would have suggested an active response to hijacking rather than the passive response that was in effect. And NO ONE can tell me that what I saw personally was not real.

There was no one on watch. The 9-11 subcommittee supported this fact.

The movement organised, and we saw some of the largest demonstrations and letter writing campaigns ever initiated.

The Democratic leadership chose to ignore the pleadings of the Grass Roots movement and authorized the funding AND the actions against the Iraqi people and their government. Now that the Grass Roots upsurge has replaced this government with new active Democratic leaders, it appears that the Democratic leadership is again making deals that are contrary to the wishes of the very movement that has worked so hard for change.

I will warn you that the anti war movement is strong and growing disatisfied with either of the major parties. The Democratic leadership will face the same music that the Republicans have at the hands of the voters.

Even though you do not say so, you know that Mr. Bush and others lied to Congress.

On another matter, arms merchants are corrupting some members of Congress. Duncan Hunter should be investigated further. His presence on specific subcommittees is a bane for competitive bidding on contracts. We had no help from the Democratic National leadership to replace him in this last election. Most of his funds for running for office come from outside of our district. He does not represent the district at all. Candidates lined up, and it would have assisted in defeating him, had you worked with constituents in choosing a candidate in residence. We might have beat him. We needed you. And you were not there.

Arrest the mother&*#@*# already.......

Time to start writing letters to your new representatives and I'll have to continue picking on my old one.
Lets let them know that we will not accept letting the bushistas off the hook, no more "business as usual".
Time to start making reservations for bush, cheney, rumsfelt, rove, rice and powell at one of our better rendering plants in Bulgaria!
Bye Bye Blackbirds!

Nuff cardboard.....

Friday, November 03, 2006


So another Republican in Florida has resigned in disgrace, is it surprising? They are a disgraceful bunch after all, but what I don't understand is why the rethuglican party is being allowed to replace them on the ballot. The same thing happened with Foley. Neither Foley or this next guy Ralph Arza has been convicted of anything yet, they have simply resigned. Shouldn't it be considered a forfeit? They quit! So that party nominated a quitter and should be made to run with that person. I think the candidates should remain on the ballot with no replacement, after all it is the person who is running and NOT the party. Tough xxxx on them if the candidate is a louse. There is precedent for candidate replacement when they die such as when Ashcroft replaced the senatorial candidate in Missouri years ago, but there is also precedent for the person remaining on the ballot as in the Tom Delay case in Texas.

I don't know if any of you have heard about this guy...Bill McDannell. He's selling his house and personal belongings to finance his Walk to End the War. In a way I wish he wouldn't do it, I think this war is going to go on for a very long time and his work and dedication would be more usefull in the long run. But maybe he's on to something and I think he deserves everyone's support. So go to his site and sign the petition and wish him luck. It's a long walk and he can use all the emotional support he can get.

Walk to End the War

It's beginning to look a lot like Election Day!

Geez I love decorating Santee.....
