Listening to: Jean Sibelius, Finlandia/Karelia Suite/The Symphonies # 1, 2 & 4
Oh, how far the mighty have fallen.
We're not talking about me (of course), being neither particularly mighty nor having fallen nearly as far as I could. Sure, I'll debase myself here but I don't think anyone's addlepated by that; my resorting to geek-tricks in order to whore for a few more readers is hardly surprising.
Thus, to mollify Crystal's demand for moobs, I offer this shot of myself from my webcam:
As you can see, I haven't been eating my Wheaties.
As a bonus, you can see what I looked like in the 80's:
I swear to god, this one's real. That mane goes down to the middle of my back in that pic and yes, my dad is about to load a 5 1/4 floppy into the computer. Yeeeesh. I don't know about the rest of you but I sure don't miss the 80's.
And another thing: the sparkly things near my ears aren't specks on the photo but earrings. Dangling earrings, I think one was the Boot from a Monopoly game and the other one was a fishing lure or skull or something. "Yeeeesh," indeed.
None of that's my point.
How the mighty have fallen, yes. Check out recent polls and see how over 60 percent of Americans now disagree with this war. How most now believe Bush lied to get us into this clusterfuck. That sucking sound is not your paycheck going into your gas tank, it's the hubris BushCo trumpeted last November and it's come back as a big karmic foot in his ass.
Rummy tells us the insurgency in Iraq is in its "last throes" which is true, I guess, if "last throes" means "growing". Ah, but Rummy isn't over there doing the dirty work.
What I want to know is why the Bush twins - Jenna and Not-Jenna - aren't over in Iraq. Isn't that a fair question? In fact, why aren't the asshats who support the war signing up? Check out the college Republicans and none of those weasels are stepping up to enlist to go fight the war they think matters.
Walk your talk, assholes. Step up and go do the hard work. Otherwise, shut the fuck up. Shut. the. Fuck. Up (Conservative cowards are expected to comment ANONYMOUSLY - per usual - to present themselves as the retards they are).
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld... fucking cowards. Never saw a day of combat yet gung-ho to send other people's kids into harm's way. Jonah Goldberg? Anne Coulter? Please tell me when any of them are going to sacrifice a themeselves or a family member. Please.
In the meantime, my son drives a truck here in Colorado and he won't be driving it for Haliburton:
He's not fighting your war, you cowardly shitsacks; neither are my daughters (not considering it even if the Bush twins enlist - heh). Over sixty percent of Americans are against this war (still will be after the Chimp's speech, Tuesday, bank on that) and I was one of the few who opposed this war from Day One. Fuck you.
I know what my country is about and it's not about my president lying about reasons for going to war. None but the completely stupid or the wilfully ignorant know this by now. Sign up your own kids for this fiasco, you gutless shitbags. Leave my kids alone.
UPDATE: Go read what a soldier over in Iraq has to say to the worthless turd Karl Rove.
