Holiday cheer & Holiday fear

What's goin on in the world today ? (worst to least fav's)

Thanksgiving in the USA:
A chance to sacrifice a large bird (whose meat has been shown to have sleep inducing if I nod off, blame the cook!!) to the gathering of friends, loved ones and family. An opportunity to be grateful for having a house over your head & something to eat. Noble reasons...And I will admit I am thankful about those a limit.

I EARN them, it's not blessings of mana that sustain me, it's getting up and working that do it. So I'm MORE glad that my profession allows the value of my contribution to my employers is rewarded, and thus my subsequent ability to offer an over-cooked-sleep-inducing-avian.

War in Iraq:
Nothing to be thankful there:

Situation in Darfur: (spelling is wrong but I ate some bird..see first post)
Can't the global community learn ? Bullies like guns, they like them more when they are used to keep them in power. Why doesn't the global community lay a smack-down on this friggin issue. But I forgot...Africa is the "Dark Continent" where matters are best left to terrorists, mercenaries and aid workers.

Look. Emasculated UN (more on UN later) should accept their role in helping shape the GLOBAL..that means US (not the USA..US=Homo Sapiens) ALL...direction. Kofi Annan should be tried for incompetence, the UN in general should be tried for the same. This organization should DEMAND
#1 - Full Dues paid by ALL members
#2 - Limiting membership to the security council should reflect GLOBAL standing, not possesion of Nuclear arms or global ambitions
#3 - If you wanna join the UN (or stay in) you better toss in a contribution that is is meaningful
#4 - If you "CHOP" a force (afterall, the military is best positioned for this task and they LOVE their acronyms) to the UN. The command chain is UN>-Providing Nation>-Unit fucking around with who commands the higher echelons.
#4 - No more toothless "investigations"...simple screw with the UN and you're facing #4 above. We saw Clinton & Saddam dance..nothing happened of lasting value. We see Bush trying a different dance lately and value.

In short. UN had better become what was intended by it's charter...PLEASE BECOME THE FORUM for ALL NATIONS.

Recent Elections in the USA:

Running out of steam in terms of's late/early and I need either caffine & sunlight or a nibble and 3 hours in bed. I will return with my bitching about what little I know

A Sunday's Observations

I was suffering from lack of sleep and over caffination (double/double for that morning kick to consciousness) as I skimmed through the Star at the local Timmothy's coffeeplace. The usual articles about the Film Festival, Sports, SoDuku (I have no idea why people play this ! ) etc.

A few hundred women were milling around oooohing over wood and metal trinkets at the local antique show while their neutered men stood flaccid holding purses, coats, kids but certainly not wallets.

Me, I tried to put that insanity out of my head, stared at the paper and the occasional nice ass that sauntered by.

One note to women, don't wear jeans without back pockets..they throw off our appreciation of your anatomy. Legs melding to buttocks is great nekkid but in jeans, you ain't showing nothing visually but a long line, and no man I know wants to grab a hold of a flat board ! Pockets define the roundness, a visual cue. We all know the size of a jeans poket and therefore can superimpose our hand in that space. Women you'll be equally stifled by the thought of men wearing kilts everyday. Flat screen tech is great for TV but not for clothes !

Who's on First - A modern approach

George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That's what I want to know.
Condi: That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes.
George: I mean the fellow's name.
Condi: Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That's the man's name.
George: That's who's name?
Condi: Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi: That's correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi: You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi?
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
