(via Kos) Unless you’re disabled, you have no fucking right encouraging others to die in your stead. If you weren’t cowards, you’d be in the military, not whining about Kosovo or some other bullshit. The Army’s recruiting isn’t getting any better, and they need YOU. Not the kid from Wal Mart, not the ROTC grad. […]
Taking a cue from the Downing Street memo, Ralph Nader and Kevin Zeese suggest addressing the ‘I word’: It is time for Congress to investigate the illegal Iraq war as we move toward the third year of the endless quagmire that many security experts believe jeopardizes US safety by recruiting and training more terrorists. A […]
Not surprising but cataloging it for future reference: US President George Bush has dismissed as “absurd” an Amnesty International report that said the US was setting back the cause of human rights.
Ron and I ran into some flight attendants 2 nights ago and one of them was sniping that if he ever ran into Glenn Tilton on a flight that he wouldn’t serve him. I wouldn’t serve the motherfucker. I’d trip on purpose and pour coffee on him and burn the motherfucker. Jimmy McBean has a […]

And you’re heading home. And you start thinking about shaving your head. Ron says that you shouldn’t because […]
I’d known about the one jet they tracked to different countries to outsource torture. Didn’t suspect it was a whole fleet. Christ.
What an asshole: Frankly, I was offended by it. For Amnesty International to suggest that somehow the United States is a violator of human rights, I frankly just don’t take them seriously. Somehow the US is a violator of human rights? Somehow?!
I saw this weeks ago on a re-run of Saturday Night Live – looking for a video of it now. It was an Excedrine commercial with Queen Latifah: Do I get stress headaches at work? Yes, definitely. From the moment I get in, it’s “Denise, we need this,” “Denise we need that.” Which is stressful, […]
Great news on a Monday: In the last few months, the small commercial air service to the naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has been carrying people the military authorities had hoped would never be allowed there: American lawyers…. An important ingredient in accomplishing that, he and other military officials at the base said, was […]
