that New Year's Break

As we have been traveling for a couple of days and heading out is something to get you in the party mood...ready for the great '08


Yummm....a bowlful of watered-down history

Line right up, Americans...time for your daily SoyLent Green

Did Rudy Giuliani witness something that the rest of the world missed?


Did the rest of the world acknowledge something that Rudy Giuliani is missing?

Oh Rudy, I understand that 30-second time limit for your TV ad:

- gotta use "Islamic terrorists" Because they are Islamic and "terrorists".....there's our 9/11 link

- throw in some "dictator" and "tyrant" along with the "terrorist"...because they are all the same to Americans, right? At least the good 'ol red+white+blue Americans that will vote for you

- no time to go into any of that silly Iran-Contra affair...that would require at least a couple of minutes....better time spent in the Rudy Introductory video, where it spends those minutes talking about how America is the "last best hope of man on earth"

Rudy must not be getting the same soup I have, for mine is overflowing with Nicaraguan blood.


Spare Me My Life

toic acceptance of the accommodations
made when traveling
to the bandanna republic wearing "Wild West,"
where women know their place in the shopping malls,
where men are in business or in prison or in the business of prison.
People talk slowly, presidents emulate cowboys,
and everybody has a gun because shootings are common
and shootings are common because everybody has a gun.
Spare Me My Life.

moderate-to-high confidence

We, as Americans, don't often do this,
But it appears we may have missed an opportunity for another "just" war... OR Maybe not.

With "moderate to high confidence,"
We believe Iran is less determined to develop nuclear weapons than we have been judging since 2005.
