where I've been
Second cold this year.
And I haven't been too impressed with the news cycle.
- U.S. Port security? There ain't none. Fellow anti-Fascists boiling down this issue to one of race are oversimplifying. Why should the logistics of any American ports be controlled by a foreign company? We are told over and over again how fucking superior everything is when it's papered in red, white & blue -- yet there's not one American company qualified to oversee operations in U.S. ports. Bullshit. This is about parking aircraft carriers in a hostile part of the world. And a thousand levels of cronyism. Always, with the cronyism.
- Hopes of avoiding civil war in Iraq? There ain't none. It's been a foregone conclusion since the decision was made to invade & occupy Iraq.
- Women's rights in South Dakota? There ain't none. This is the shape of things to come, soon to be rubber-stamped by our post-Constitutional "supreme" court (which, as we have seen time and time again, has nothing but the greatest respect for states rights... unless decriminalizing marijuana is involved).
- Backlash to Bush's Spy-O-Rama? There ain't none. Russ Feingold talks tough on Bill Maher's show, but Russ Feingold is essentially a man without a party. Dems could own '06, but anyone who believes the Democratic Party has enough dignity and courage to effectively challenge the Dictator-In-Chief on this or any other issue is a fool. We are in this rotten position precisely because it doesn't.
And on that merry note, there's a couple of Nyquil shots callin' my name.
