Not Dubya, my friend George who sends me fun, controversial stuff like this. I'm mostly posting this here because I want to keep it, but not in my inbox.

So I discovered this little video this morning too.
If you are anti-Bush, you will enjoy it. If you are pro-Bush, well don't look.

I loved the song so much, I went to go check out Jim's Big Ego.
I'm digging this too.

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing.
He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you today just the way your are.>

From Bill Maher to George Dubya:

"Mr. President, this job can't be fun for you any more. There's no more money to spend -- you used up all of that. You can't start another war because you used up the army. And now, darn the luck, the rest of your term has become the Bush family nightmare: helping poor people. Listen to your Mom. The cupboard's bare, the credit cards maxed out. No one's speaking to you. Mission accomplished.

"Now it's time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk away. Like you did with your military service and the oil company and the baseball team. It's time. Time to move on and try the next fantasy job. How about cowboy or space man? Now I know what you're saying: there's so many other things that you as President could involve yourself in. Please don't. I know, I know. There's a lot left to do. There's a war with Venezuela. Eliminating the sales tax on yachts. Turning the space program over to the church. And Social Security to Fannie Mae. Giving embryos the vote.

"But, Sir, none of that is going to happen now. Why? Because you govern like Billy Joel drives. You've performed so poorly I'm surprised that you haven't given yourself a medal. You're a catastrophe that walks like a man. Herbert Hoover was a shitty president, but even he never conceded an entire city to rising water and snakes.

"On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New Orleans [plus the entire federal treasury -ef]. Maybe you're just not lucky. I'm not saying you don't love this country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the other side.

"So, yes, God does speak to you. What he is saying is: 'Take a hint.' "

Skip if you want, it's just random stuff in the news that I want to comment about to myself.

Britney had a boy.

Dubya's approval rating is down. 6 out of 10 people believe that his actions aren't in the best interest of the country.

Ophelia is still pounding the North Carolina coast. Not good, slow storms are as bad as violent storms. Luckily, my friends and family did go inland. I'm also pleased to read that flooding hasn't been an issue like it was when Floyd (99) or Isabel (2003) hit.

Boring stuff.

So one of my errands yesterday was to go to the library. I still need to get my own library card, so I'm using RTL's for the time being. I forgot to take a piece of mail addressed to me to prove that I am a Berkeley resident. I'll remember when I return the books I checked out.

I love reading. I also like not having to pay for books that turn out to be no good. When I lived in Richmond, I went to the library all the time. The library was right across the street. The library here is a wee bit further away, but not by much. I forgot how much I like the library. Yay for the public library.

The other thing that I got to learn about yesterday was the new check out system. Berkeley has installed a RFID system to make checking out books faster and easier. However, this has caused an uproar among Berkeley residents. I can't decide if it's good or bad. After waiting in a long line, it took me 2 seconds to check out my book choice. However, do I really want to be riding the BART with an RFID sending out a small radio frequency? I think it falls into the same line as the government having access to my library records. Just because I check out Catcher in the Rye or The Anarchist's Cookbook does not mean that I'm up to no good. Knowledge is power. It reminds me of the place in Berlin where Hitler had all the books he didn't want other people to read burned.

OK, off that rant. I love the library (RFID system be damned) and now I'm going to go read while I fix my Season Pass list.

Monday returns again after a short weekend of trying to do nothing.

I did consider writing here this weekend, but have found that it is as difficult to post a thought as it is to write email on the weekends when I'm not home alone.

On another note, I'm upset with the U.S. Supreme Court.
I will actually have to go and read their reasoning that the Federal marijuana ban overrules state laws that permit medical marijuana usage.
I'm too upset to vent about it right now. I'm having a hard time remembering when America stopped being what America is suppose to stand for.
Our founding fathers are probably rolling over in their graves. Couldn't we just start the country all over - clean slate and all?
I can just hear the pages being added to my file for being unpatriotic.
Regardless of that fact, I'm concerned that the elected government officials aren't doing what is best for me or the U.S., but what is best for their bottom line.
And I wonder what principles was this country truly founded on?

Always things to ponder.
Still debating the hair thing - cut or trim, color or not
cork or tile flooring for the bathroom
where to go on vacation? I suggested shooting suction darts at the world map, RTL said that she would end up with all the darts in the ocean or the wall, then reminded me that I would have to cut out DeLand, Raleigh, Richmond, Madrid, and Berkeley so we wouldn't end up anywhere we (she) didn't want to be. OK, OK, I do agree with part of the list, but not all of it.
