This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address fall on
the same day.
As Air America Radio pointed out...
"It is an ironic juxtaposition: One involves a meaningless ritual in
which we look to a creature of little intelligence for
prognostication... and the other involves a groundhog."

Don't take things (like your life and the people in it) for granted.

Rockets are going to Pluto for the first time ever and are being propelled by controversial nuclear energy systems. Capsule's are returning to earth with "tennis rackets" full of comet dust from the time of the planets' origination as well as dust from the Milky Way beyond our own solar system. Mars rover systems have outlasted their expected lifespan by 5x.
And what is MD doing while revelling in these scientific breakthroughs? Probably planning some extravagant trip to Walt Disney World to celebrate!
In the name of Science....where is MD's post?
Don't get me started. (um, that's about as much of a rant as I could muster.)

See here for the latest laugh riot of a lie by US govt:
Maybe we're just there to supply humanitarian aid. From this piece:
"Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the U.S. government has spent millions to support discredited right-wing political parties and stifle grassroots movements in Bolivia."
Man, it's hard to love freedom as much as we North Americans do!! Damn grass-rooters.
You do have to scroll down through the story a bit to get to the funny part about how the tri-border area of Bolivia/Paraguay/Argentina is a hotbed of islamic terrorist activity. Guffaw. Chortle. Belly-laugh.
If you do read the whole article, however, you will note that once again the US government (keepers of freedom; terrorist fighters) are poised to intervene in what is none of our damn business. President Morales was elected in what all observers call a fair and honest election. Well, that sounds like democracy and freedom to me, how about you?
You know what does NOT sound like freedom and democracy? No? Well, I'll tell you: A government using terrorist tactics (subversion, invasion, monetary "discipline," etc.) to change the fair and democratically decided course of a country.
Please take the following quiz:
When the US government invades Bolivia, they should use the following tag line:
A) We are fighting fiendish Coca farmers who are destroying the very fabric of our society. Coca farmers hate freedom.
B) We are fighting islamic terrorist who have infiltrated the very fabric of Bolivian society. And they hate freedom, too.
C) We received a secret message that said aliens would fly out of President Morales' ass and blow up your child's school if we didn't off him good and quick. Aliens are freedom-haters.
D) We thought that we could pad the pockets of a lot of our richest constituants if we could just somehow give them the natural gas fields of Bolivia. Also, it would more firmly entrench our empire to "adopt" our little, darky southern brothers. Bootlicking bolivians and rich constituents love freedom!
What is this, a fucking game of RISK? This is some serious crap, my friends. And we are (once again) headed towards doing what is wrong.
It seems to me that the person or groups that are labeled "terrorist" has a lot to do with point of view.
Well, I ranted again. I guess your eyes weren't spared.

When is this shit going to stop? I firmly believe that the King is the greatest threat to freedom in the history of this country.
Even you righty leaning friends out there have to agree that this is WRONG. I don't give a shit what they MIGHT find. It is wrong, just as sure as going to war under false pretenses is wrong. Just as sure as funneling all the work of reconstruction in war zones and natural disasters without even entertaining bids from other companies is WRONG. Etc.
Oh. I'm sorry. Maybe we should talk about how wrong it was for President Clinton to have sex with another consenting adult. Or maybe we should drag him over the coals for buying some property and possibly bending some laws for personal gain.
Or maybe we should talk about how unpatriotic I am for not signing up to be one of the King's stormtroopers.
Whatever we do, lets not focus on the subject at hand, which is that we are being led by a despotic lying liar (apologies to Mr. Franken) and it is going to cost us all far more in the long run than the potential attack by terrorists - which history tells us is pretty impossible to stop anyway. Aren't you tired of being just as scared as they tell you to be (oooohh, the threat level is fuscia today! I'd better shit my pants now to save time later!!)
I'm moving to Venezuala.

The founders of our country faced dire threats. If they failed in their endeavors, they would have been hung as traitors. The very existence of our country was at risk.
Yet, in the teeth of those dangers, they insisted on establishing the full Bill of Rights.
Is our Congress today in more danger than were their predecessors when the British army was marching on the Capitol? Is the world more dangerous than when we faced an ideological enemy with tens of thousands of nuclear missiles ready to be launched on a moment's notice to completely annihilate the country? Is America in more danger now than when we faced worldwide fascism on the march-when the last generation had to fight and win two World Wars simultaneously?
It is simply an insult to those who came before us and sacrificed so much on our behalf to imply that we have more to be fearful of than they did. Yet they faithfully protected our freedoms and now it's up to us to do the very same thing!
The Administration responds the only way it knows how: with bald-faced lies. Will the press allow them to get away with it like they did during campaign 2000? Maybe the times are a changin'.

I'm hoping Roy puts some pics of his golf vacation up as well. I'm having some serious golf fever.

As I return to my roots again next weekend, is anyone out there interested in accompanying me to the Troy-Fort Zumwalt West hoops game Friday night? Remember in our day when there was only one or maybe two Fort Zumwalts at the most? St. Charles County, being the GOP stronghold it is, is apparently now full of Forts these days. And from what I read, Zumy West has a quality hoops team. It may be a full house at Wilkins Arena.
