We were thinking of this idea, and found that someone had already done it.. and did it well!

Lies, Corruption, Fear, Incompetence, Indifference, and Arrogance.... It's My Favorite Hypocrite!

On Mr. Karl Rove:

''I... will not prejudge the investigation based on media reports," G. W. Bush said Wednesday as Karl Rove sat behind him.

That's funny.. I thought that ole dub-ya loved to prejudge (and start wars even) based on possibly uncredible information?

Eating his own words on claiming that he'd fire the man responsible, Bush is caught between a rock and a hard place with the revealing of Mr. Rove being the guilty party. Makes you wonder if it was found that his brother Jeb was responsible for planning terrorist attacks, if he'd be brought to justice as Bush so adamantly states that he will do.

Even the man who's wife was the target of conversation isn't amused. "The president has said repeatedly, "I am a man of my word,' " Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson said. "He should stand up and prove that his word is his bond and fire Karl Rove." Wilson also stated that he thinks that the White House's trend and posture in this controversy represents a continuing "cover-up of the web of lies that underpin the justification for going to war in Iraq."

"Heavens no, that's not a monkey on my back.. that's just my good buddy Mr. Karl Rove!"

Hurricane

It's that time of year again.. where the occasional hurricane or tropical storm can come by and change up the pace of life here in southeast Louisiana. I for one think that the naming scheme is lame... giving powerful tortoise-like natural disasters cutesy names just doesn't make any sense. It's not a he, she, or even alive.. it's the product of physics and matter. Most are calling this amazing weather pattern "Dennis". Evacuation routes and warnings are being issued all over the metro area and beyond. Most computer models predict the storm to head more towards Florida than here, but most people feel that the margin of error is too high for risking. Here I am, Friday, noonish and at work.. awaiting the fate of my weekend and so forth. I never get too crazy about these things, although people may misinterpret my calm demeanor as being ignorant of the seriousness of such a catastrophe..... make no mistake, I know enough to know what wind and water can do when given enough energy. Earlier this week, a tropical storm came straight in and tore down a lot of trees and such, bringing a little bit of flooding as well. A lot of weaker branches have now been cleared from the trees, which may prove to lessen the debris from future storms. Weather fascinates me, though.. just like electricity (including electronics) and atronomy. One of the great things about science is that the different studies link to one another in some way or another. So.. if I don't have some beachfront property due to errosion in the coming Monday... so be it!

4th Of July loses it's meaning

On the 4th itself, I was rewarded with some tasty eats at Jessica's parent's house and then my own parent's house. I even bragged to Spicolli on the delicious bratwurst that I scarfed down. I traveled to Slidell three times this weekend for a new personal record and also having to refuel three times. Ok.. that crap aside, how was my 4th anyway? Well, J-Pop, Me, and my brother bought fireworks and were having fun with bottle rockets and mortar shells (with and without the launch tube!). Paying high gas prices and hearing stories from my father about how fireworks are weak and crappy compared to the old days combined with J-pop's quotation of new government standards on terrorism and not being able to make your own celebratory explosives sent a shock-wave of anti-patriotism through my soul. Could you blame me? It's definitely not a terrorist act to construct your own fireworks, is it? Maybe the patriot act has something to do with this.. or maybe J-Pop just made it all up. But the way things appear to be headed, it's most likely that he didn't. Anyway, I celebrated something that matters more than the thousands of meaningless deaths occurring overseas and the barrage of idiots running the show in Washington... I just plain enjoyed the evening hanging with good friends and my cool bro. A revolution from tyranny started with a declaration saying that we were not going to take this shit anymore back in 1776... why are we taking this shit now?

Missing Aruba Teen Gets Special Attention

Now I don't mean to sound like an inconsiderate ass or anything, but this Aruba teen story is a big yawn and the search is a waste of taxpayer money. It almost seems like a scam of some sort.. to avert our attention from matters that may be of real importance to the general public. The article lately reads: Warplanes to search for missing teen. WOW! Warplanes! They've sent FBI and now warplanes. Seems to me that this teenage girl and the WMDs have a lot in common, if you catch my drift. I'd not mind the effort and have a lot more faith in my government if I was sure that the old US of A would put forth the same effort if non-blonde haired & pretty teenagers (aka normal citizens) were to become missing in Aruba or elsewhere. Besides, after all of this "effort", they've arrested and released just about everyone on the island... the sad reality is that after all of the hype is long gone, and the public has lost interested to point of being apathetic, and the government doesn't look at fault because of a good public relation's move to appear to go all out on the investigation, there will be an unsolved murder that the family and friends directly related to the incident still has to deal with.
