Reality Bites

So, it seems that the Supreme Court is trying to redeem itself after a week of bad decisions and even worse, bad publicity. They have graciously decided to hear from the detainees at Guantanamo regarding their indefinite confinement. This situation has been a black stain on America's honor for far too long. 375 detainees, most of whom have never been and never will be charged with anything, guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong skin color. Hmm, maybe it isn't a good thing the Supremes want to sit in judgment, they've done enough damage for one week.

Wow! In Japan they pay $30 a month for broadband speeds up to 50Mbps, in America Verizon will let you pay $180 a month for speeds up to 30Mbps and the powers that be claim that we have the most effective multiplatform broadband in the world. Considering that we lag behind Estonia (quick, find it on a map), that isn't the best example of being in touch with reality but it is consistent with the mindset of the crew without a clue. They think we'll believe anything.

Which brings me back to the "surge". In the US body count. Our military has just suffered the worst three months of the war in Iraq and it doesn't look like the dying is going to stop any time soon. Meanwhile, the never right wing has itself in a lather about going to war with Iran and we haven't finished the job in Iraq or Afghanistan (bin Laden, been forgotten, whatever). You can put lipstick on a pig, but it still remains a pig and it's still ugly.

Did she or didn't she wear a diaper? Who cares, she still wasn't on the same mental planet as the rest of us.


  1. Well, not wearing a diaper makes it all OK then, doesn't it?

  2. Did she or didn't she wear a diaper?

    You know...with a lead-in like that, I just have to speculate as to whether or not Paris Hilton wore panties in jail. 'Bout on the same level, I think, and where's the MSM on this important issue?

  3. With Paris, the options are many. Crotchless, edible, thong, maybe bikini, or none. One thing is for certain, they weren't granny.
