I've been remiss…

…not posting much lately.
Either things aren't annoying me as much lately or I've been cutting back on the booze too much, I dunno which.
Actually a lot of things are annoying me. John McCain is annoying me. He's been kissing up all over the place. Lately it's the oil people. "Hey, let's allow off-shore drilling!" Ignoring the fact that it would be 10 years to any benefit from that and by then it won't make a difference anyway.
I already dumped on him for dumping (too late) the Rev (so-called) Hagge because of his wackiness, but it seems he is just flailing around trying to differentiate himself from Obama and the Bushman at the same time, while still trying to keep all the Bush loyalists (these people are a strong argument for the non-existence of a benevolent God) in his camp.
Where is the real John McCain? And do we really want to know?

This just in: an email from the South Africa Bushman United Brotherhood objecting to my associating them with George W. Bush.

My apologies. It won't happen again.

In the meantime, the Obamarama had better get serious about the road ahead and the consequences of winning. Getting there, after all, is only the beginning. We're gonna wanna see results, dammit.
You, know, I don't have a problem with conservatives, or with liberals. But whoever is in power, I want to see in them a real and intelligent exercise of their beliefs. Political beliefs.
Not religious beliefs.
To be concerned about our military strenght (remember i am a conscientious objector) is proper for a President. Trying to load the Supreme Court with anti-abortion justices is not proper. The job, for President and Justice and Congressman is to take care of ALL the people, ALL Americans, and this means going past and even ignoring regional and personal and social and religious concerns. It's the WHOLE COUNTRY that's important, and those who are elected "leaders" should be thinking of that. Sure, they need to think about whether their states need more bridges or national guardsmen or whatever, but they have to remember we are all a country, and particularly to remember we are a country which has laws about detention and international agreements about the handling of prisoners and how much the gov't should know about us.
The last few congresses have been a grave disappointment.
I get a great deal of pleasure out of the fact that a Supreme Court which has been created mostly by conservatives has been telling the Cheney Presidency (see how I lost the "Bushman" thing?) that it is blowing smoke out of it's collective ass.
In our country, if someone is suspected to be guilty of something, they get a day in court. So it has been, and so it will be again after Mr G.W. Bush is out of office.

WHY isn't there more agitation about this? A president who would impose upon your freedoms, torture, hold in cells people not charged with any crime, snoop on your communications—why aren't we impeaching this violator of all American ideals?

We're too busy watching American Hero maybe?
Wake up, America!
Okay, that's it for tonight.

Now that the election process is moving on to the next stage, I may have more complaints. Stay tuned.
Warning: if the past is any indication, there may be a lot of negativity in future reporting. C'mon Barack, prove me wrong!
