HELL YEAH!

I'm sure most people have heard of the 9/11 "Freedom Walk" that is scheduled in Washington. The walk is said to be for "Remembering 9/11 and to Support the Troops". The Washington Post is co-sponsoring the event, but have claimed they will withdraw their support if the event turns partisan. Well considering that Clint Black's song, "I RAQ AND ROLL"--which will be performed at event--contains such non-partisan lyrics as:


"YOU CAN WAVE YOUR SIGNS IN PROTEST
AGAINST AMERICA TAKING STANDS
THE STANDS AMERICA'S TAKEN
ARE THE REASON THAT YOU CAN"

and

"WE HAVE THE RESOLUTION
THAT SHOULD PUT'EM ALL TO SHAME
BUT IT'S A DIFFERENT KIND OF DEADLINE
WHEN I'M CALLED IN THE GAME"

and

"I RAQ, I RACK'EM UP AND I ROLL
I'M BACK AND I'M A HIGH TECH GI JOE
I PRAY FOR PEACE, PREPARE FOR WAR
AND I NEVER WILL FORGET
THERE'S NO PRICE TOO HIGH FOR FREEDOM
SO BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU TREAD"

and this lovely line, which clearly is directed at opponents of the Iraq War..

"THEY CAN BE NO MORE THAN COWARDS
IF THEY WON'T SHOW US THEIR WEAPONS
WE MIGHT HAVE TO SHOW THEM OURS

IT MIGHT BE A SMART BOMB
THEY FIND STUPID PEOPLE TOO
AND IF YOU STAND WITH THE LIKES OF SADDAM
ONE JUST MIGHT FIND YOU"


I will be expecting the Washington Post to withdraw their support. This is clearly nothing more than a Pro-Iraq war propaganda rally.

I really thought that the Washington Post withdrawing their support was not going to happen but then I came across this article.

My response to reading this was as follows:

HELL FUCKING YES! THESE REPORTERS AT THE WASHINGTON POST FUCKING ROCK!

THANK YOU GUYS, THANK YOU FOR NOT ACCEPTING THIS BULLSHIT PROPAGANDA PARADE!

This is such great news! This has been such an awesome day!

Good Music

Well, thankfully my favorite band, 311, is releasing a new album. I really need it right now. Their positive message always lifts me up when I'm down.

The album is called Don't Tread on Me, which is very appropriate given the times we live in.

I suggest giving it a listen. It is free to check out. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Click Here and enjoy.

Let me know what you think of it in the comments. Positive and negative comments welcome!

Constitution? We don't need no stinking Constitution!

Well Bush decided to disregard the Constitution and appoint Bolton to the U.N.

This appointment isn't surprising but it is a blatant abuse of power.

First, let me start off by saying that ANY recess appointment, that is done to subvert the authority of Senate, is against the Constitution and is complete bullshit.

I don’t care who does it or what party that person belongs to. Recess appointments were intended for EMERGENCY appointments when Congress is not in session--not to stop the Senate from doing it’s fucking job.

I’m sick of these politicians shitting on our Constitution.

Here is the recess appointment clause:

Clause 3: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Read the first sentence carefully…"The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate."

The clause is clearly refering to vacancies that happen during the recess.

The clause was intended for emergency type circumstances; when it is urgent that the position be filled and the Senate was on recess.

It was not intended to be used the way it has been by both the Democrats and Republicans. They have both abused their power.

Face it, both parties are corrupt; but the current Republican party is just drunk with power. If you ask me, the time for vigliante justice is nearing. Our government become more and more authoritarian each and everyday. Slipping into a democratically disguised, totalitarian rule we are...
