Family Love: Soldiers Want to Come Home


Busharoo Bonzai

 Busharoo Bonzai

The implacable George W sings these haunting words to his elusive desideratum, Saddam Hussein...aided by wonder-blogstress, Iddybud


In the cult classic, The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai, there is a scene where Buckaroo, played by Peter Weller and who is a rock star, a martial arts expert, a neurosurgeon, and politically well-connected, sings the song "Since I don't have you" in a smoky lounge where sits Penny, who is beautifully played by Ellen Barkin.

Now George W. Bush is no Buckaroo Bonzai, so don't get me wrong.
He is a Lizardo...only having never possessed the cerebrum. But on second thought, maybe Lizardo only anticipates Chimpy. He is fond of calling people "Monkey-boy". But alas, that is soft science. I'll have to keep analyzing. Let me know if you discover a connection. In the meantime, enjoy Iddy's rendition of the song:

Will Arianna Take On Arnold?

The Battle of the Accents
By Don Hazen, AlterNet
July 14, 2003

Hard to believe, but this fall those two accented icons, Greek-born Arianna Huffington and Austrian-born Arnold Schwarzenegger, may well be battling to the wire to take the California governorship away from sad sack Gray Davis, who has embarrassed himself to near unanimous public contempt in the state.


Blame Bush for California's Budget Woes

Blame Bush for California's Budget Woes

A reiteration of what we said before...

Federal energy regulators met or exchanged phone calls with Enron Corp. executives and lobbyists 25 times during 11 months when Californians endured soaring energy prices and rolling blackouts, according to records released yesterday by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

Shortly after taking office, President Bush waged a battle against the imposition of federal price controls in California that allowed Enron to price-gouge consumers by extending the energy crisis in California, costing the state billions of dollars. Enron reported increased revenues of almost $70 billion from the previous year.

Liberals Outperform Conservatives in the Blogosphere

Conservatives 330, Liberals 2,690

Liberals Outperform Conservatives in the Blogosphere

Google Search turns up wide descrepancy

Conservative Blogs on Google
Liberal Blogs on Google

Rush Limbaugh, the fat man's messiah, is fond of saying "repeat it often enough and eventually they will believe you." Well the conservatrons are at it again. This time they are claiming domination of the blogosphere...apparently since domination is the only language they speak. Don't be surprised if they started buying up liberal blogs just to balance the scales...just like they did to web businesses at the turn of the century, only to flush them down the toilet. Gotta control the information flow. Dissenting voices not good. Competing industries not good...

Of course they could, instead, multiply their rolls in blogdom...but alas that might expose them for the vacuous reactionaries they often are.

Take a look at liberal blogrolls and then conservative blogrolls. Now read and analyze each "side".

What you will notice is a certain concentricity of blogs on the right, and sadly, quite a bit of concentricity on the left now as well. People are selling out their individuality for popularity, and at a cost.

Conservatives claim to be for the individual, and yet they work in packs. They watch each other to learn what to say. Liberals are far more insouciant in this department, and tend to depend more on their native gifts to assess the situation. You do know about the situation?

More on the situation later...
