what do you think? i think this was a great article. it portrays as many sides of the story as it can, and opens quite a few channels of thought. discussion on this is vital. how do you feel about being watched? if the cameras are required, should the government pay for them? does this violate civil liberties, or does it protect law abiding citizens? i would have to read the legislature to make sure it is not fucked, however the idea is a good one. as long as they dont require cameras inside of a private business, it strikes me as prudent.
oh.my.god. why the fuck do these hollywood assholes ever dare to open their mouths about anything? they are no more informed than the average citizen (which is to say that the average citizen is about as informed as a dumb rock) but they use their fame to disseminate their opinions as if they actually matter. and the shitty thing is, people listen!

"Cheney is a terrorist. He terrorizes our enemies abroad and innocent citizens here at home indiscriminately. Who ever thought Harry Whittington would be the answer to America's prayers. Finally, someone who might get that lying, thieving Cheney into a courtroom to answer some direct questions."

read the whole thing. its garbage, conjecture, and pure malice.
who the fuck does he think he is? alec baldwin? oh, wait.....

this is a decent column, but such a shallow worldview is dangerous...

replace cheney?
a good column on the big buzz about cheney's hunting accident. the media calls for his resignation, but is it a bad idea? should he continue to take the hit for the administration or should he bring in a successor?

google news search has just mauled my face with news. i have learned more in 5 minutes reading one column by an iranian than i could hope to learn in 5 billion years of watching and reading american media.

runaway capitalism?

------------------
"Wal-Mart is on a rampage across America but no one is doing anything about it," says hardware store worker John Faenza in the film. Greenwald reports that wages and property values fell when Wal-Mart came to town.
---------------------

a rampage? no one is doing anything about it? lets play a little game shall we? its called lets be honest here. i'm going to be brutally honest and you are going to try and do the same.

corporate rampage?
wal mart started out the same way every other business did. it battled competition, it survived, it grew. so what is so evil about it now?

poor healthcare options?
i would like to know when it became a private firm's responsibility to provide healthcare to the people it employs. sure, its a nice thing to do, but is it a requirement?

"the average wage is between $7.50 and $8.50 an hour, the average-on-the-clock workweek is only 32 hours."
7.50 & 8.50? thats nothing to laugh at. 32 hours a week? about what you'd expect for your average american job. that is what we get when we work jobs like this. a wal mart employee will not make as much as say, a sewage treatment expert. but the average american may not have gone to school to learn the viscous and slightly odiferous ways of the sewage treatment professional. you need little to no education to work at wal mart, it is not a career (which those in capitalist societies should seek) but a job. the people who work at wal mart are not forced into their work. they work there because to them, it is better than not working at all. wal mart does well and employs people because of the very things that the WM haters complain about. non union employees, poor healthcare options and lower than low prices. but these people work at wal mart because they choose to, just as the people who shop there choose to. that is the beauty of the capitalist system. walmart is not putting small merchants out of business because it is an "evil corporation", consumers are putting small merchants out of business because they are opportunists, and in a word, capitalists. they will shop where the price is best and the place most convenient. these people need to realize that it is not corporate greed, but simple economics that they are angry at. but everybody loves a target...

the mark of the beast?

not quite. just some security measures at a private firm. however, the idea of a global id card or, (more ominously for those reading revelations) a global id chip implanted in the body, is not inadmissable. i could see it happening within the next hundred or two years. if socialist and theocratically fascist powers come to rule a majority of the earth, it would not be improbable in the least. (i get bonus poliblogger points for my expansive vocabulary ^_^)
this man is not evil, as some would propose. he is simply another world leader, doing and saying what he thinks is best for his people (or more likely his political party). no different than any other politician, if you think about it. (although the fact that he would like to see all westerners subjugated or dead leaves me a little peeved ^_^)

ahmadinejad is calling for israel's destruction again. not surprising...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
from the mouth of the mad mullah:

"We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them," Ahmadinejad said in a ceremony marking the 27th anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

"Do the removal of Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations," the ultra-conservative president said. He once again called the Holocaust a "fairy tale" and said Europeans have become hostages of "Zionists" in Israel.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

this war has been in the making for some time. most people have no idea why, especially here in the states where many citizens are more concerned with who is going to win american idol than the actions of our government, let alone the governments of other nations and the struggles which we as a global society have all been a part of for years, whether we realize it or not. humanity will always be tribal, even on a massive scale, and tribes always make war. this is not just about israel, this is not about jews, this is not about east or west, this is mankind in his element, waging tribal warfare with the new weapons he has created. he will destroy people with his guns and bombs and he will break wills with propaganda. it doesnt really matter who wins any war, because the people who truly lose will those that are innocent and not conciously involved, while those that "win" will only regroup and prepare for the next fight, so that more can die for the ideals and properties that man is willing to kill for. am i defending war or condemning it? i can do neither. if you think about it objectively war serves many purposes, one of which is population conrol; we as a species have few natural predators. however no one with a decent heart can condone mass killing, and at times i have been known to have feelings. ~_O

we all know i believe in fairy tales...


so of course i can believe in moderate, sensible muslims! if only we heard their voices as loudly, and saw their actions as clearly as we see and hear those of the extremist fascist ideologue theocrats... (4 cool adjectives = bonus blogger points)
its getting cold in here, so put on all your clothes...


i want to go to space, but i dont have $20 mil....


thank allah for the internet...


one more reason george clooney is a pussy...


gives a new meaning to airplane hangar...


and you thought I was obsessed with myself...


read this headline and then think to yourself: "how is it secret if the fucking media reports every second of the action? just a question. sure, people ought to know, but what madness is this? who told of the secret? would it have been better for the nation of france to keep this secret? every administration has those who would tell its secrets, to further their or their party's ends. ask yourself: is it right for the newsmedia to openly publish top secret national security information? freedom of press and speech are important. but at what point does a reporter become a traitor? i would love to hear some comments on this.


i'd also love to hear what you guys think of the new blog, and participation is encouraged! all opinions, all information you can provide brings us closer to understanding, closer to truth... even if we never get there, the journey will be fun...
i've got er up and running. got my links set up for now... on to the situations and events i think you should know about....
