“I want to be a peace president.”

“I’m a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office in foreign policy matters with war on my mind.”

The U.S. has handed over sovereignty to Iraq two days prior to the June 30th deadline.  I’m laying odds that things are going to self destruct by the end of year, if not the end of July.  I’d bet that the new government will be just as bad as the last one.  After all, who put Saddam Hussein in power?

That’s right, America.


“God”

May 31, 2004

So, I’m bouncing around some message boards and checking my e-mail and I come across an update on the case involving the man suing on behalf of his daughter to have the word “God” removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. The man, an atheist, feels that it violates the separation of church and state. I agree and in response to those who say it’s “traditional,” it was only added fifty years ago. But back to the case. Well, he lost. Not on any legal grounds but a technicality. You see, his ex-wife (a devout Christian. Gee, I wounder why it didn’t work out.), the girl’s mother, has primary custody. The Supreme Court decided that because he only spends a third of the month with his daughter he has no legal right to pursue this in her name. So, there you have it, America. Your government at work.

In other non-government related news: My leg hurts. Nibbler decided that since he isn’t quite big enough yet to jump up on the counter himself, he’d use my leg to climb up. Now, I don’t know if anyone else has every had a kitten with razor sharp claws use your body as their own personal staircase, but it fucking hurts. I’d be mad at him, but he’s too damn cute curled up on the desk next to the speaker.
