And It Was Goddam Good

From grabbe (reminded me of Bernstein's Mass, which is the source of today's title):
"In the beginning there was nothing. And God said, 'Let there be light.' And there was still nothing. But now you could SEE it." -- unattributed

# Lie Girls - photos and QuickTime video in the style of 1-900 sex lines, lampooning the lies of the Busheviks. Hilarious. [smith2004]

# Flowgo - The Political Bohemian Rhapsody - flash animation. Cute.

# I watched Team America World Police yesterday afernoon. It had its moments, but mostly relied on four-letter words for humor. I almost got up and left, but managed to sit through for the even-more-reliant-on-four-letter words ending. But hey, they saved the world. Probably the most memorable scene was the ravishing blonde team member saying to the star, "If you promise me you'll never die, I'll make love to you right now." He promised of course, and then we watched string puppets demonstrate the Kama Sutra (the whole thing is done, quite well, by string puppets with animated faces, except for two black cats portraying Kim Jung Il's panthers).

# San Francisco Chronicle - SWAT Teams Patrol BART trains - five photos, starts with a rider looking at two men in black uniforms with their fingers properly resting aside the trigger guard of their M16 rifles. Intensely sickening. [grabbe]

# Henrietta Bowman at The Sierra Times - What the Hell? - Ms. Bowman's house was surveilled yesterday by an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). I've copied her entire post below, but click the link to read the discussion. [sierra]

As I have told my readers for almost ten years, the Feddies and I have been in a long, drawn out battle. Normally they leave me alone, even when I shoot off my mouth because they know very well there are some things I can say they really do not want to see the the light of day, especially when I dig into my personal files, long ago widely distributed where the Feddies would never find the files. It sorta gave them a tight pucker in their tail feathers.

Now I know for a fact, they read the Sierra Times and ESPECIALLY, they monitor the I have warned my readers on numerous occasions.

What happened this evening shook me. An obvious UAV came in from the east over my property, but because the weather was unseasonably warm, I was sitting on my covered porch and saw what happened personally. When I first saw the UAV, it was about at 300 feet altitude and about three hundred yards from my house to the east, but it suddenly dropped to about 100-150 feet above the deck and made a sharp southerly turn directly over my house and there were what I thought were FLIR and and IFR appurtenances to the craft. It definitely had fixed landing gear. I would like to know why I have been targeted. There is not a doubt in my mind that I have been. True, I have said a lot of things lately that upset the powers that be. However, many others are now whacking them in the family jewels, so I am far from their most diabolical enemies.

I learned a very long time ago that the best defense was a good offense. It has served me well for almost 10 years. Why am I now suddenly being targeted? All I can tell my readers is if I suddenly disappear for as much as three weeks, it is lock and load time, because the balloon just went up. Feddies, I DO hope you have just read this and that you know some folks are at the 'lock and load' stage.

Henrietta, locking and loading...

# Edgar J. Steele - America's Twin Towers - the deficit and the trade deficit, two towers that will wreak havoc when they fall (note that I didn't say "if"). Not a single mention of the "J" word.

Remember when we used to get worked up over our President merely lying to us about his sex life? Ah, those were the days, weren't they? To think, I actually loathed Clinton. I'm having trouble coming up with a single word that captures the full measure of what I feel about Dubya.

# Richard Pearsall at via Liberty Forum - Deptford Woman, 89, Heads To Jail: Quaker Was Arrested At Anti-War Protest - for blockading the federal building in Philadelphia on March 20, 2003. She and her fellow protesters chose a seven-day jail sentence over a $250 fine to avoid supporting the war with their money. Bravo! [whatreallyhappened]

# J. Neil Schulman at Sierra Times - Why This Libertarian Is Voting to Re-elect George W. Bush - he's drunk the koolaide and believes that there is a large group of ragheads that intends to randomly kill Americans. Personally, I think there's a lot bigger chance of being killed by one of the hundreds of police forces that stain the land than of ever seeing an Islamist. And Bush and Kerry are intent on giving them even more power to ruin my life. [smith2004]
