|It Seems to go With The Territory...
Sure enough, mass
graves have been uncovered in East Timor.
Nyaah, Nyaah, Told You So!
Where're the darn nukes?
The stock market all but dug
a hole for itself last week.
Because We Hate Foreign Competition
About six months ago, this publisher commented
that a "correction" was inevitable, especially in the ludicriously overvalued
Net and tech stocks, because of the insane amount of speculative capital
being poured into the market, and because every cretinous spongehead in
the entire country was using it to fund their retirements.
So there are now some very broke day traders,
some miserable GenXers, and some embarrassed boomers who by golly should
have known better than to dump their net worth into something as historically
shaky as stocks.
Wonder if some tight-sphinctered white
upper-middle-class SUV-driving boomer twit will sue?
What a stupid question. It's not if,
it's "when" and "which one"?
The US will continue helping
Pakistan curb illegal drug trading.
Speaking of Which...
Apparently various criminals in the Pakistani
citizenry are using sneaky methods to create, sell and transport illegal
substances, rather than use the high-tech modern kitchens, low-flying stealth
aircraft and ready offshore shipping the CIA supplies, in exchange
for "a piece of the action".
It's not this
story about pot busts that caught this publisher's attention; it's
the headline, to which one may only respond, "Well, duuuuuuuuuuh."
Probably Because of All the Fundamentalists
in this Country
Non-heterosexual Americans are
at a higher
risk of suicide than their heterosexual counterparts, not that this
is news to any but the uninformed and thoughtless ignorami who insist that,
even though Jesus Christ never once mentioned it, if there is a
God such as the one they worship, that God endorses only male-female sex,
and then only within the confines of marriage.
Hey, You Voted For Him
Of course the Catholics aren't helping
-- nor the Mormons -- by pumping
money into certain ballot initiatives, despite the clear Constitutional
of church and state that exists in this nation.
Against same-sex relationships? Don't
Minnesotans' attempts to recall
Jesse Ventura have been squelched.
There's some whining going on next door
that Jesse's driving
business to Wisconsin. I guess bucolia looks pretty good now,
(some of) the article that started it all.
