Strange day in the news. First there was the specter of Condi telling the world that US law requires that Americans adhere to the UN conventions on torture anywhere in the world. At the same time she is defending the US practice of kidnapping terror suspects and turning them over to other governments to torture. Meanwhile, George Bush is lobbying Congress to exempt the CIA from the anti torture statutes coming up for a vote soon. Pogo was right!

Strange days...we're still waiting for the U.S. to hand back David Hicks whose been in Guantanamo (who the hell can spell this?) Bay... whats happening to the world...its like becomming Nazi Germany all over the world... who are these people like Condalezza, Bush, Blair Howard (our PM) and all the movers and shakers from the multinational corporates who answer to no one....

maybe have to answer to god or whatever one day.
Money is the root of all evil. Until we reform our political structure so it doesn't cost the average person millions to run a political campaign to get elected to an office that only pays in the tens of thousands, corporations and major political parties will be pulling the strings. Maybe with the Internet we can find a cheaper way for people to run for office and get their platform out there, then maybe we'd have a chance to get someone elected who wasn't in someone else's pocket. Better stop, I can feel the political rant in me rising.
And this gives us the moral high ground HOW...?
"We have met the enemy and he is us"

Seems to me I said this myself way back in 2000. Long before 9/11, or 03/03. With THIS Republican party in control, I fear we are becoming that which our fore-fathers sought to escape.
That's always been my favorite Pogo quote!

Voyeur, you GO girl!! Bloggers of the world UNITE(or untie)! "We're mad as hell and we're not gonna take it anymore!"
I have been looking at the news in shear confusion as of late myself. How will it all sum up? I don't know but I am doing all I can to show up for it tomorrow.

I live another day and may main goal is to live another day, every day.
December 8:

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one
What a song! I hope to hear him sing it again. Maybe in another life.
Yes indeed.
Only a day away...
