 After seeing the complete flaunting of the law in last nights decision by Wisconsin Republicans, I realize (and confirmed) that the modern Republican is nothing to do with the grand Republicans from our history. Indeed, the scariest thing I've ever seen. They live, without hope, they believe in nothing but their own short lives in this round blue cell we all share. They don't believe in an afterlife, or even the continuing of any existence of a world to be inherited by the descendants of our current time period. They will tell you that they do, and they will tell you that they love Jesus, but their actions betray their inner thoughts.

Why are we farking there? Was it Osama Bin Ladin? Remember when they said they had him cornered in a secret lair in the mountains of Tora Bora? I was all excited to see his Dr Evil hideout. Whatever happened with that guy?

Is it to build a pipeline through the country and control the flow of oil? Because we could've done that without bombing a bunch of people gathered for family reunions and weddings.

Is it b/c the Taliban is brutal to gays and women? Because I live in Dominionist central and there are plenty of American Christians who can't wait to turn this place into a dark ages theocracy.

Was it to spread Democracy through the Middle East? Because I don't think they're going to be listening to our point once the smoke clears.

Was it to claim all of the minerals that the Soviets found in the 70s? Because we could've, you know, traded money for those. Instead, we're paying for this stupid farking war AND we'll pay for all of those minerals. Seems like a pretty big mark up.

Is it to satiate the Military Industrial Complex's constant need for war, to keep a few rich white guys at a depraved level of wealth? Because I'd gladly give them 80 cents on my tax dollar (as opposed to .75) if they'd just leave the rest of the world alone and quit killing people.

While North America's airports groan under the weight of another sea-change in security protocols, one word keeps popping out of the mouths of experts: Israelification.

The security theater that has been implemented since 2001 has raised the cost (in dollars, time and convenience) of air travel enough to divert enough travelers to the nations highways that I posit that we as a nation have suffered more death and injury than had we reacted to the Sep 11 attacks by literally doing nothing at all.

It is not the responsibility of non-Muslims to look past barbaric evil attack after barbaric evil attack and recognize that moderate Islam still exists. It is the responsibility of moderate Islam to rein in and destroy the madmen emanating from your societies. Are you too toothless or unwilling to do that?

Baghdad, Iraq - A US soldier shot and killed a tiger at the Baghdad zoo after it bit another soldier who had reached through the bars of its cage to feed it, a zoo security guard said Saturday.  The soldiers had been drinking beer when they entered the zoo Thursday night after it closed, said the guard, Zuhair Abdul-Majeed.

Every horror movie has that “Oh Shit!” moment, when the hero or heroes are huddled in some creepy hideout, and suddenly something happens that tells you that the monster is just around the corner, or just about to attack. In “Jurassic Park” it was the pulsing ripples in a cup of water, heralding the arrival of a T-Rex. In “Jaws” it was the deep bass music, letting you know that a monstrous shark was about to attack.
