Ski Neighborhood Going Downhill

Where are they now?
Retired war criminals choose a variety of homes. Henry Kissinger, an estate in Connecticut. George Bush, a gated, ethnically cleansed community in Texas. Saddam, a hole in the ground.
Don Rumsfeld has chosen the long-established artist colony and ski resort of Taos, New Mexico(!)--much to the horror of his neighbors.
Has Rummy followed ex-warmonger/Sec. of Defense, Robert McNamara, and become a hippy? Will he turn his blood-stained hands to basket-weaving? Ceramics?

Who gives a shit!
However, if you would like to contribute to making Rumsfeld's retirement as uncomfortable as possible, contact:

Healers Sniff Their Roots Back to Doctor of Circusology

Just had an interesting conversation with an aromatherapist.
And you know what? I'm convinced! The alternative healing technique of aromatherapy is actually based on one of the soundest, most scientifically proven principles known:
There's one born every minute.

No More Water-Boarding . . . Or Wedgies

I am definitely not a member of the "Obama the Messiah" cult. However, I can't help thinking that the world is breathing a little easier already.
There are still plenty of rotten kids and bullies in Washington, but I believe there is a general feeling that they are now under adult supervision.

I've Got Some Good News, And . . .

It's easy to see why economics is called the "dismal science." All good economic news seems to have a catch.
GOOD NEWS: Following FDR's model of public works, Obama's plan to create 4 million new jobs will probably succeed.
BUT: In FDR's era, America still produced things. Will the American economy really be helped by 4 million more people buying cheap crap from China and dependable cars from Japan?

Free at Last, Free at Last!

In his final interview, Dubya claimed that his proudest achievement was lessening the number of Al Qaeda in Iraq. When the interviewer pointed out that before his invasion there were no Al Quaeda in Iraq, he responded: "So what?"
I believe that this sparkling gem of ignorance and arrogance perfectly sums up the Bush era. It has a lot to do with the huge celebration building for tomorrow's inauguration.
This isn't so much an inauguration as a liberation.

Well, the 8-year insult to America is almost over. Dubya's last gasp has been to compassionately conserve money for the treasury by vetoing (again) a bill that would provide medical care for uninsured children. A perfect finale!
Many comedians and satirists claim that they will miss the man who has provided them with so much material. Not me. I've never experienced the slightest bit of adversarial respect for George Bush. I consider the man to be an ignorant, callous fool and I dislike everything about him.
The clown who complained of being "misunderestimated, and who waved to Stevie Wonder did irreparable damage to this country. He is responsible for immense suffering and thousands of needless deaths.

It's notable that Bush is moving into a gated community that was officially (and illegally) segregated until only a few years ago, while Obama is moving into a mansion built by slaves.
Of course, I like the idea of Dubya in a gated community. I just think that it should be the kind that locks from the outside.

Seizing a Last Chance as Dubya Confronts the Awesome Stress of His Job

Do you think it's a coincidence that everything seems to be going to hell all at once?
-Trusted banks and financial institutions indulging in an orgy of greed despite the consequences of worldwide depression and chaos.
-Executives letting our most important corporations go to hell in order to make a fast buck.
-American mercenaries out of control in Iraq.
-Israel suddenly launching a military campaign sure to be condemned by all but the U. S.

Now consider:
1.) In a recent interview concerning his legacy, Dubya remarked that the most stressful moments of his 8 years as president were "throwing out those first pitches on the opening days of baseball season."
2.) Barack Obama and a crew of intelligent, competent people are waiting in the wings to take over the government.

My God, How Do Swedes Find the Courage to Go On?

Yes, I realize the dangers of "socializing" medicine in America. Universal health care could put us on the slippery slope to becoming another nightmarish, inhuman hell-hole like Canada, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark . . .

Unreasonable Demands of the "Socialists"

The FIRST THING that President Obama needs to address is a universal health-care system.
-What good is national security without the personal security of knowing that you can receive medical care when you need it?
-What good are jobs if you're too sick to work or you can't earn enough money to maintain the health of your family?

This view, of course, brands me as a "socialist."
For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a socialist is someone who believes that his family's health is more important than the CEO's of Americas biggest corporations earning an average of 60 million dollars a year, or John McCain owning 13 homes and 20 cars.
