Things I'd Like to Change

I'm scared of police officers, and drug screens. Even when I've not broken the law. I'm well-trained to fear official scrutiny.

My classism is showing.

Some Gave All

I hope Iraqis have an equivalent to Memorial Day. Lord knows they have a lot more bodies in the ground!

(And if anyone wants to get on the whole "they killed themselves" kick, then look up the history of the fucking holiday. Peace!)

Far better bloggers than me have given up. I haven't had much passion for this shit aside from commenting since the second GWB administration, so maybe it's no surprise that this thing will probably never get off the ground.

Name that Leader!

"Well, in my impression, it's twofold. First of all, I think he understands the economic plight that his country faces. I mean, one would have to be blind not to see it. And to that extent, he knows that he's going to have to reform the country.

"On the other hand, the notion that some people have had over the years that he could reform the country against his own regime, that was the illusion, that he could turn against the very pillars of support of his regime and become a revolutionary that would lead a revolution against those who brought him to power.

"And that's not going to happen. And so it's not a matter of him being stuck. It's that he is part of the very regime that today is trying to save itself, and it's not going to save itself by committing suicide."

Aw... He was my second choice.

Whenever I hear a straight white man argue that his film is empowering of women, I reach for my revolver.

I have no polished blog, yet I must waste time at work.

When you're of a minority view, and you're on the Internet, and especially if you're of the lefty/anarcho type, I imagine it's pretty darn easy to see other people as agents of a nameless fear or something.

I'm usually called liberal. Nice to be (maybe) called a commie by someone who's not on the right for a change. Takes me back to middle school.

Fair Play

So Obama's asking the Chinese to revalue the yuan to favor international (and US, of course) trade.

So China, stop being so damn protectionist! It makes it hard for our market, and the only time the global market should shut down individual nations' economies is when it's not us.

Anyway, I'm no fan of Chinese power plays, but at this point I figure that we shouldn't whine if China is artificially hurting our market the same way our subsidies injure other American growers.
