there and back again, a news tale: or how I learned about governmental intrusion and got sent to Gitmo

GOOD NEWS! maybe our freedoms and our country aren't in the toilet after all:

don't worry, just go about your little consumerist lives and pay no attention to the man inside your cell phone:
note to self, install switch to disconnect the mic when not in use
it would be amusing if it wasn't so sinister, Enzyte is fighting for your rights in regard to email and stored communications:
I keep wondering why Bush doesn't just go ahead and revoke the Fourth Amendment and start issuing these:
but I guess he doesn't need to when he can just use a signing statement instead:

why imagine the American Dream when you can sell the "cure" for the nightmare?

Ford thought Bush did the wrong thing in invading Iraq:
Bush skipped out on most of the funeral, wonder why?
nice to see that The Gipper got the big sendoff, but he was a good Republican and he gave Papa Bush his big break

war is peace, freedom is slavery, Fox is fairly unbalanced:

truth is dead, attempting to find it is treason, go back to your regularly scheduled programming citizen:
liberal media or political Xerox? how do you find out what the truth really is?

Bush has Saddam's gun in his desk:,9171,644112,00.html
I bet he has the hanging video on his cell phone too, I bet that would make a sinister, but amusing, Amp Mobile ad

follow the money, it never lies, who has profited from the "War on Terror"?

speaking of money, a bad trend is when yours stops being used:

Jesus told me the Grand Canyon was only 230 years old because that's when God's country was made:
what a load of crap, how far are we going to let this go?  I guess I better stock up on leeches and keep my humours in check because that devil science can't be trusted!

hmmm, lawyer gets entangled with The Administration, now he has committed "suicide" to the bewilderment of everyone who knew him:

and just to be fair on both sides and maintain my "journalistic integrity" something stupid about the Democrats, they're really pushing for cleaning up Congress...except campaign finance reform.  remember kids, you can refuse to eat at the trough as often but you can't bite the hand that feeds you:

hahahhahahahahaaha, oh man, what's more funny than conservatives snuggling with boys? drug-addicted, tripping Chief Justices, that's what!

way to go Murtha! no more troops for you Mr. Bush:

hmmmm....NORWAY HAS WMDs!! we better invade!
a development in alternative energy I've reported on before but it's good to see it in the press again, biodiesel from algae:
Vegas bets on some alternative energy of its own:
making electricity out of all the hot air in California:
a handy dandy way to liquefy diamonds...oh yea and it might be useful for nuclear fusion too:

Teh Funnies and the Assorted BS
torturing virtual characters for science, I did this years ago, its called "The Sims":

guess what guys, they finally found a cure for women's headaches:
but maybe they don't need help:,,2-2006600199,00.html

we're killing the oceans, but don't worry it'll probably be decades before it screws us:,0,7842752.special

who needs space when you have iPods and MTV?

could you kill another person? and how would you feel about it?

do no evil?  but who defines what is "evil"?

look, God, we've had some good times, but I've found someone new and the internet understands me and isn't so hellfire and brimstone, I hope you understand, can we still be friends?,,1980978,00.html?gusrc=rss&feed=1

learn how to think like me, it might help you decide on what to have for dinner tonight:
yeah I know its not modest to say that, but so what? you wanna fight about it?

a breakdown of where the money goes for Christmas and other Xmas facts:
more donations for religion than education...hmmm, mucho interestante

the supersonic plane is back from the dead:

dude, we need to score some Avon, I hear that shit is the bomb:

ok the doctors are optimistic about a happy life for Barbaro. well I damn well hope so! he's going to be put up in a posh stable and is going to get laid constantly!

youtube vid o' the day:

and now a quote from a great and funny man...a dead funny man, Bill Hicks:
I have this feeling man, 'cause you know, it's just a handful of people who run everything, you know … that's true, it's provable. It's not … I'm not a fucking conspiracy nut, it's provable. A handful, a very small elite, run and own these corporations, which include the mainstream media. I have this feeling that whoever's elected president, like Clinton was, no matter what you promise on the campaign trail – blah, blah, blah – when you win, you go into this smoke-filled room with the twelve industrialist capitalist scum-fucks who got you in there. And you're in this smokey room, and this little film screen comes down … and a big guy with a cigar goes, "Roll the film." And it's a shot of the Kennedy assasination from an angle you've never seen before … that looks suspiciously like it's from the grassy knoll. And then the screen goes up and the lights come up, and they go to the new president, "Any questions?" "Er, just what my agenda is." "First we bomb Baghdad." "You got it …"

last and not least, the Daily Schadenfreude:
now I know its not kosher to make fun of the fat peoples but she was warned and she brought it on herself
