100 Days

The Center for Constitutional Rights has posted a detailed analysis of how Obama has done so far in terms of restoring the Constitution to its pre-Bush form and generally adhering to its principles. The first 100 days of the Obama administration presented a historic opportunity to restore the Constitution after …

Atlas Shrugged, I Vomited

So, according to CNN – not the most reliable of sources, but hey – the works of Ayn Rand are starting to sell again. And that, my friends, is a sure sign of the beginning of the end. Because the kind of crazy selfish thinking that Ayn Rand encouraged and …

More Disgust

Things are getting predictably worse in Sri Lanka as the government continues to shell civilians in its attempt to destroy all opposition from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. And what are all the major powers doing? The usual bullshit. UN Security Council president, Mexico’s ambassador Claude Heller, told the …

Torture.

As more and more information comes to light, it is now becoming utterly impossible to deny that all the major members of the Bush administration, as well as high-ranking Democrats, were not only fully aware of the use of torture, but specifically approved of it. And what is the reaction …

You’ve got to know whom to bite.

And now it makes perfect sense that I never liked South Park. South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker still can’t believe a signed photo of Saddam Hussein U.S. Marines sent them is for real – but they hope it is. Legend has it the troops screened the duo’s …

Man, oh man.

So there we were, out in the garden… happily playing with our little monster… when all of a sudden this huge motherfucking stone slab comes down from the roof with a crash, hitting the ground where we had both been standing not too long ago, making a huge hole in …

Almost at Desert Bridge again

That update I talked about, that will fix the DPI issues? A couple more days. With the way I managed to cut my finger, and a bit of “normal” work that I had to do, in addition to being rather tired, I’ve had to postpone it a little. Meanwhile, the …
