184

184. That's the difference between the number of confirmed casualties in Iraq (http://www.antiwar.com/casualties/) and the number of dead on September 11th (http://www.september11victims.com/september11victims/). Should only be a month or two before the number of dead in Iraq exceeds the lives lost on that fateful day. And what has BushDick done? Nada! Nothing! Zilch! Oh wait there was that whole we're not gonna use "Stay the course" anymore. So the best this dipshit can do is change his little soundbite slogan! How about going after Osama and catching the bastard responsible for September 11th! What about going after the Saudi's who finaced the attacks! Nope, they just change their slogan. Lot of good that does in stopping a bullet. Assholes.

So Bush makes up laws as he goes...

It seems our "President" seems to think that the title grants him the right to strip us, the American people, of our Constitutional rights. First he lies to us convincing the coutry to support his illegal war. Then he illeaglly wiretaps our phones without just cause etc etc etc. I really do NOT want to list all the bullshit this moron has done as I really don't want my bloodpressure boiling.

And NOW to top it all. Bush claims that, "I don't know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information. If somebody did leak classified information, I'd like to know it, and we'll take the appropriate action." [Bush Remarks: Chicago, Illinois, 9/30/03]

He didn't know of anbody in his adminsitration who leaked classified information because he forgets he is part of the administration. Better yet, his attorneys and the White House are claiming Bush can't leak classified information cause he decides what is or is not classified. Wow. While the rest of the country may be stupid enought o buy this crap anyone whith any sense and who can do any research other than looking at Fox "News" can figure out it is NOT the President who decides what is or is not classified. That is decided by various organizations depending on the case.

Now to sway those who may have common sense the White House then says, it was okay for Bush to leak info since it was declassifed a few days later. SO FUCKING WHAT! Guess what brainiac, ALL classified information gets declassified at some point! Does that mean it's cool to go sharing our nuclear secrets with China since they'll be declassified in a few years anyway? No! Why? Because if it was okay to do it, the information would have never been classified anyway.

Now about this, "The President has set high standards, the highest of standards for people in his administration. He's made it very clear to people in his administration that he expects them to adhere to the highest standards of conduct. If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration." [White House Briefing, 9/29/03]

So Bush when do you resign? Oh wait, you keep forgetting you are part of your own administration. You meant anyone who was not you or that ass Cheney woul dbe fired. You know like you did to those poor kids in Iraq who were following YOUR orders that it was okay to torture. But alas you can't be held accountable for what you say. No. Those around you have to take the hits so you can live in your treehouse playing cowboys and indians.

Why did you want to be President. Oh right cause you want to be president of the MLB.

Ex-commissioner says Selig waited Bush out
ESPN.com news services
MILWAUKEE -- How close was President George W. Bush to becoming baseball commissioner?
If a new book by former baseball commissioner Fay Vincent is to be believed, very close.
"Fay, what do you think about me becoming commissioner?" Bush asked Vincent several months after Vincent was forced out as commissioner in September 1992. Bush owned the Texas Rangers at the time.
"I think it's a great idea," Vincent said.
"Do you think I'd make a good commissioner?" Bush asked Vincent.
"Absolutely," Vincent answered. "You're smart. You love baseball. Is it something you want?"
Replied Bush: "Well, I've been thinking about it. (Bud) Selig tells me that he would love to have me be commissioner and he tells me that he can deliver it."
Vincent recalled the conversation in his new book, "The Last Commissioner." It was reported in Wednesday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.
Selig was baseball's acting commissioner at the time. According to the book, Vincent recalled: "All my alarms went ringing at once."
Vincent has been a critic of Selig's since leaving the commissioner's job a decade ago. He blames Selig, among others, for forcing him out. He was highly critical of baseball management during this summer's labor negotiations.
Vincent is also close with Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, and his mother, Barbara. He writes extensively about that relationship in the book.
According to the Journal Sentinal story, Vincent once talked with Major League Baseball labor lawyer Chuck O'Connor about Vincent's relationship with Selig. O'Connor, he wrote, "had warned me to look out for Selig, that Selig wanted to be commissioner and that he would try to knock me off. I didn't believe him. Selig was my friend, I thought."
Vincent quoted O'Connor: "Selig thinks being called commissioner is one of the important titles in American life. He thinks it would make him a great American, a historic figure. He wants your job. Watch out for him."
Vincent said he told Bush that Selig wanted to be the commissioner. Bush said that Selig had told him he wasn't interested.
"George, I'm worried. I think Selig wants the job for himself," Vincent wrote.
Bush: "He told me that I'm still his man but that it will take some time to work out."
Vincent: "George, he can't tell you the truth because the truth is painful and telling painful truths is not his strength. He has never been able to tell people what they don't want to hear."
Bush later ran for governor of Texas. He was elected president in 2000.

I've Been Told...

I've been told I'm too "intense," too "pessimistic,' too "angry." Me? Intense? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Oh so because I speak my mind and call people out for their crap they try to pull I'm "intense." Pessimistic? Hell no. I am one of the most optimistic people I know, I have to be, I've beaten the odds this far I have to believe I can keep going and surpassing the expectations of those who expect me to fail. Angry? Hell yeah! Angry that suddenly it's become a crime in this country to have passion. It's become criminal to expect more then the same bullshit everyday. Sorry I will not be spoon fed lies and cheerfully ask for more. I'm angry because no one stands up and defends what's right. Not in politics, not in business and not even in their own personal interactions on a daily basis. Everyone is so terrified that they'll either be attacked or be cast as unpatriotic that the United States has become a nation of fools sitting on their thumbs spinning around in front of their big screen TV watching Fox "News."

Yeah I'm angry. You all should be. Why do I get myself worked up over things? Because I want my kids to have a world to grow up in. I want my children to know truth, honor and most importantly RESPECT. Respect for the law yet the courage to seek truth when those in charge, whether they be police, politicians, etc. Step outside their boundaries and break the very law they are sworn to uphold. And don't get me started on daily police abuses, I'm not even talking the excessive force they feel is necessary to take one person down for a "routine traffic stop" (and no I've never found myself in that situation). I'm talking the needless and reckless traffic violations and civil liberties infringements that happen everyday.

Yeah I'm fucking angry. I'm angry because you're wasting time reading my ranting instead of going out and doing something. I'm pissed because you sit and nod your head in agreement when someone questions the corrupt leadership yet as soon as that person is finished you walk away and do NOTHING! I'm pissed because I can't have passion for my country and for the "rights" granted unto me by its Constitution without some asshole saying I'm too loud. It's my responsibility as a citizen to voice disapproval with the system. It's my responsibility to address issues that actually affect me and my fellow Americans. I don't care about the latest "Benifer" or "Brajolina." I could give two shits about who's the next American Idol. Shit that show pisses me off! More people vote for some shmuck singing a crappy cover than they do PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!! What the hell is that about?!

Yeah I'm pissed and angry but don't confuse my passion for anger. You'll know when I'm angry.

Holy Shit!

So I come to my blog this morning and what do I find, a comment!!! Holy shit. Someone decided to read this damn thing after all. It's a miracle.

So about the French. They love thier riots. They'll riot over just about anything. More power to them. I think the U.S. could use a few good student riots. We seem to have lost the ability to do anything but protest in confined spaces created by the very authority figures we're protesting. That is the prime time to RIOT! It's several thousand people versus a few hundred cops. Yeah they have guns, nightsticks, ocassionally dogs and tear gas but if you prepare properly then these things won't concern you. But I digress. The French. The law causing all the problems was slightly modified but still allows companies to fire young employees. I still have to ask how the fuck is this supposed to remedy the situation of unemployment? I'd like one concise answer.

French Riots are Riotous!!

So the French government is passing a real wing-ding of a law which makes it easy for companies to fire younger workers. The government claims this will help fix unemployment. Okay let me see if I understand this... By allowing companies to fire young workers the unemployment rate will drop? Wow I wish fuzzy logic worked in real life. Imagine this: "Boss if you allow me to do no work then my productivity will increase."
What the fuck?

"In preserving the principle that workers under 26 would face a lack of job security, Chirac came down on the side of his prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, who has argued that businesses will welcome the added flexibility, encouraging hirings that will bring down France's chronic youth unemployment rates."

http://news.yahoo.com

Okay, again. By allowing companies to fire kids they will hire more kids? No! But what will happen is this. A company fires some kid(1). He starts looking for a new job, in the meantime some other poor kid(2) is hired. So the company reports it hired a new kid(2) all the while the first kid(1) hasn't filed for unemployment yet so it looks like two kids are working when really there is still only one. Fuzzy logic. Look it up. This shit makes NO sense.

And to explain the title, think about it, these kids are pissed that they'll lose jobs so what do they do? They go and trash places of business and act like a bunch of uncivilized bufoons. I'm all for a good riot, but come on. All they're doing is adding fuel to the fire by showing how irresposible they are by setting shit on fire and destroying stores and private property. Who the hell wants to hire a kid when they see them acting this way. Why don't they just all go shoot themselves in the foot it would do the same thing.

The COUNTDOWN begins!!!

And so here I officially mark the beginign of the countdown. To what? To the number of dead U.S. soldiers EXCEEDING the number of Americans killed on September 11, 2001. I may be the only one to notice this but since the numbers have become SO close and with the U.S. deathtoll in Iraq guarenteed to excede the number killed on that fatefull day the news has stopped reporting it.

So here for your viewing displeasure are the unbiased facts:

Number dead on Spetember 11th:
CONFIRMED DEAD: 2948
REPORTED DEAD: 24
REPORTED MISSING: 24
TOTAL: 2996

http://www.september11victims.com/september11victims/


Number dead in Iraq:


Date Total

Since war began (3/19/03): 2327
Since "Mission Accomplished" (5/1/03) 2190
Since Capture of Saddam (12/13/03): 1860
Since Handover (6/29/04): 1461
Since Election (1/31/05): 891


http://www.antiwar.com/casualties/

That's only 669 more unnecessary deaths of American G.I.s in a foriegn country where we have NO business and then the body count will surpass September 11th. Will the news media cover it? Probably not. I ask you when will enough be enough. How many more Americans need to die to prove we mean business? Hell, Bush already declared, "Mission acomplished!" If the damn mission was acomplished then why are we still on the mission? And why aren't we doing the right thing and directing ALL our efforts to kill Osama Bin Laden and to take out the Saudi governement that sponsored and supported all the damn hijakers.

Did you know not a single one was Iraqi! Not one. But most all of them were Saudi!!! Way to go Bush get in bed with the enemy. Jackass.

So let's see... I predict it will be mere months before the number of U.S. war dead exceeds September 11th. Let's see who besides me picks it up and reports it.

And before you give me crap about being unpatriotic. I served my country. And it is guarenteed that as long as we stay in Iraq U.S. service men and women will die. It's part of fighting a battle that can't be won.

The Angry Rantings of... oh who cares.

So the other day I was talking about my blog with someone. A friend actually. They said it was too negative. Negative? Moi? I don't see it. Frustrated, angry, stupified, but negative? Surely you jest? Okay so look maybe I don't write the most heartwarming happy crap out there but who cares. There's so much of that crap being pushed on us, society, that we over look all the REAL problems: crappy government leadership, homelessness, poverty, a terrible education system, a worse health care system. Come on. Does everything you read need to be happy?

Who am I kidding the only people who read this are me, my fiancee and whatever friends I tell to read it.

So to all you I say, so what. I get up everyday and everyday it never ceases to amaze me how ignorant and gulible the American people are. Just look around, really look around. We're at "war" with an "enemy" we can neither find nor define. Our Social Security will run out in my lifetime. We are obsessed with oil. We are obsessed with what other people do in their bedrooms and with their bodies yet we refuse to teach our children anything about sex. What the hell is wrong with us. We claim we have "Puritanical" beliefs yet each year the adult film (PORN) industry grow by leaps and bounds nearly doubling revenue on an annual basis. We are a bunch or ignorant sex crazed sex depraved idiots.

So go out, get laid, and stay the hell out of my private life.

Another Day. Another Dollar.

It's Monday. And you all know what that means, all zero of you who read this, it means back to work. Big deal. It happens every week, just like the sun rises every day. But this weekend was different, we were all IRISH. It was St. Patty's Day. The best damn day of the year. Why? Because here in NYC on most every street corner above 42nd Street could be heard the lovely sounds of bagpipes. Music to this Angry Irish Reverends ears. Only the Celts would think that blowing hot air through a sheep's stomach was not only a good idea but could be harnessed as a musical instrument. But let's not forget these are the same bad mofos who can make wearing a pleated skirt with knee-high white socks fucking MANLY!!! I love the Irish.

What to bitch about today... Hell there is too much!!! First a bill is brought before the Senate to censure Bush. Censure!? That means he gets a slap on the wrist and it goes into his permanent record that he's a complete moron. Officials say that impeaching Bush for trampling our civil liberties is overkill. Overkill!? I may be wrong but I remember a certain group of angry conservative fucks who don't get laid enough trying to impeach the best President this country has had in decades for lying about getting HEAD!!! That was something between Clinton and his wife NOT Congress. But heaven forbid the guy get some action, he's only considered the most powerful man in the world. Let the guy get head. But Bush, he illegally spies on US Citizens in direct violation of the CONSTITUTION, you remember being taught about that don't you kiddies, it's that little piece of paper that gives us certain rights and protections. Well, guess what, the President is not above it. But we'll just turn the other cheek because we're at "war," and because he did it to protect us. It's like random searches. How is a random search of my being protecting me? Oh right I may have just rolled over a IED as I got out of bed. No you fucking moron it protects NO ONE. That's right they are just huge wastes of our time and money. Not to mention the invasion of our privacy as my backpack, your briefcase and her purse all pawed through and x-rayed.

Which leads me to my next rant. Have any of you flown lately? Feel safe? I have and I don't feel any safer then before September 11, 2001. Why? I'll tell you (I know you're on the edge of your seats for this) because we're NOT ANY SAFER!!! It was just reported that to test airport security a group brought common chemicals and materials through security that can be used for BOMBS! Holy shit you mean I can't file my nails but let me grab my copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook and see what we can bake up, cause you'll have no issues with me bringing that on. I better not hide any explosives in my shoes but if I have the materials in my carry on it's all good. I can't believe this. How stupid are we? Really fucking stupid apparently.
