Why we haven’t been posting much lately

I just found this article that I missed when it ran on November 3rd, but I think its especially relevant now. Please take a few moments to read it before you continue reading.

www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/11/02/60II/main652953.shtml

There is absolutely no way for this to have been just a few isolated incidents. They stopped beating him when they realized he was an American solder, his entire life is now ruined, this is horrible for him and just think of how much worse things would have been for him had he really been a detainee, like the hundreds of detainees now who haven’t even been charged with anything...

Bill Clinton was just on NPR, listen here:
www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4676259
He had a lot of great things to say.

But paying attention to the world right now is just way to fucking depressing.

We created government to organize things that involve the entire community, like education, health-care, helping the poor, protecting the environment... But now, instead of properly dealing with these important things and more, our resources and tax dollars are being spend on this, in our name, for absolutely no reason.

IS THERE ANY GOOD NEWS ANYWHERE????

I just want to hang out with my friends and play video games and read comic books. Move into a cave. Or onto a new planet. And just not be aware of all this. I seriously can’t handle it. I’m sick of trying to change things and not getting anywhere. I’m sick of paying attention and keeping track. It is just so upsetting without doing any good; I’m completely powerless and frustrated.

Stupid Liberals!

Looks like kids in Germany, faced with increasingly liberal parents are rebelling the only way they can. By becoming neo-Nazis.

Woot!

The recent articles outlining the argument and plans for universal heath-care are really interesting.

1. It's good for American business

2. It works for everyone else

3. It would work here

4. Americans, even most Republicans, support it

This NEEDS to be a core plank of the Democratic party platform, and honestly I dont see why it isn't being championed by Democrats and Republicans alike (other than the campaign contributions from the more corrupt segments of the health care industry).

(These links are all from the last article, but Kevin Drum also has said a lot of good over the past few months (search for "health")

Mallard Fillmore

Dear Bruce Tinsley,

I enjoyed your series of Mallard Fillmore comics dated April 25th to April 28th, 2005, proclaiming that the wage gap between men and woman is non existent and merely a myth being perpetuated by those silly liberals, but I have been unable to locate your source for this statistic and was hoping you could give me a better link.

The asterisk in the comic strips attributes the statistic to column by John Leo dated March 21, 2005 -- but I just read that column and can't find any relevant information.

I found Leo's column online here:
http://www.townhall.com/columnists/johnleo/jl20050321.shtml

Has Leo deleted the part of his column that you were referring to, or is there a paragraph I should take another look at?

I would love to use this statistic while arguing with those silly liberals, I just want to know what that statistic specifically says and it's source before I start citing it around town so I can avoid looking like a total jackass.

Please let me know.

Sincerely,
--------

UK Elections/Sophia Sucks

So, like, I hear there is voting going on in Great Britain!

So far Labour is ahead, 6 to nothing!

And when I say 6 to nothing, I mean that for the very second I wrote this, for surely more seats will be announced within a matter of moments. P.S. British politics = hella weird! How's that for an informed opinion?

I am on the edge of my seat. Not out of excitement, but because that is just how I like to sit.

Anywho, maybe something more substantial later, but I doubt it. After all, I am a bit provincial and retarded. Also, in case anyone forgot, I hate freedom.

Michael Moore Is Fat, This Bitch Is Getting There

Well I'll be damned, in a case of hyperbolic importance the line between "guilty" and "not guilty" continues to blur.

Lets get the facts out on the table.

1. Because Sadaam Hussein gassed his own people does not make it right to torture prisoners of war. So spare me (and everyone else) that bullshit, it makes you sound like a lummox and nobody likes a lummox. Speaking of which,there was a Canadian study about children that said parents were more apt to pay attention to their non lummox children.

2. Gassing people is bad, very very bad.

3. Having photographs taken humiliating prisoners in pretty obscene ways is profoundly dumb.

4. None of this matters!

5. Lynndie England has a baby named Carter.

6. I am going to guess most of the braniacs who were featured so prominently in those MySpace worthy art pictures will probably be punished in some fashion.

7. But eh, it doesn't matter.

8. George W. Bush won the election.

9. This is not an issue to be argued about on the basis of party affiliation.

10. It's just fucked up, why can't you see that? Why doesn't it matter to you? Have you know souls? What is this, the time of Charlemange?

11. It's also time to realize (or admit, and admit loudly!) that not everyone in prison is guilty. Perhaps not even half, I don't know, I'm not their collective biographer. The point is, in my fragile liberal crafted mushy mind, if there is A CHANCE, a fleeting CHANCE that one person who was not guilty was somehow TORTURED then I'm feeling a little bit dirty.

12. Wait, all this bullshit happened like a year ago!

13. I am going to go obliterate hella girls now.

Jesus

Hope is on the way

This shouldn't be happening. This shouldn't be happening. This shouldn't be happening.

Super Nationalistic Hindu Politics In India At The Turn Of The Century

Though a little blog run by some guy named "Atrios" (I think that is how it is spelled) has already mentioned this, Chuck Noblet is getting his own show! If done properly it'll be fantastique and I'm already wetting my proverbial drawers, as well as my literal ones.

A Note On Excessive Comments

God, stop commenting so much! I can't really handle reading the deluge of pseudo sophisticated amateur-amateur punditry sprinkled throughout the 3P comments section. There just comes a time when there is too much!

I think I'm going to go to a party this weekend for the sole purpose of finding a stuff-mate.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the Capitol Building right now. I'd like that a lot. And I'll tell you why. Cause if I was a fly I would be totally oblivious to these silly problems and these serious problems and to the pursuit of girls and to the pitfalls of higher education and all that stuff. Basically, all I'd be interested in is fucking girl flies and perhaps annoying humans and being totally crushed out on shit.

Educate yourselves, you smarty pantses.

Me oh my!

Are you fucking kidding me America?

Are you telling me THIS is more important than this and this and this and this and this?

Human interest stories are so interesting, even when I already saw Runaway Bride. Why are we so bound and determined to distract ourselves? Why do I ask these questions as if someone can answer? Why why why?

I hella hate America and freedom and am really bummed out my father and grandfather fought to protect this country cause I totally hate it and I want to move to France and eat Freedom Fries drenched in France sauce or whatever it is they eat over there.

Fuck this shit, as the scholars say.
