I don’t feel like forming a cohesive post today, so this is what you get:
1. I am so fucking annoyed by Dubya’s promise to veto the war funding/withdrawal timetable bill, should it pass the Senate. He is such an arrogant, pompous buffoon, and he makes me want to vomit. Admitting that the troops should be withdrawn from Iraq and that the Iraqis should now have to deal with their own governing problems would make him a much bigger man than “staying the course.” But of course Big Oil would be sorely disappointed in him, so it looks like we’ll stay until everyone’s dead.
2. I am all for the eradication of the “In God We Trust” Indiana plates, because a) they’re ugly, and b) they’re inappropriate. It isn’t just a patriotic sentiment, it’s a proclamation of faith, and it’s supporting something you believe in. I believe in the Kids First fund, so I pay my extra $30 to have a plate that shows it, as do the alums, enviros, nurses, teachers, etc., etc. And so should the Christians. We live in what is supposed to be a secular society, people. CHRISTIANITY IS NOT THE BLOODY DEFAULT!
3. I have a craving for barbecue.
