Dell has released a blatant iPod rip-off called a "DJ". It has less hard drive space and cost more than an iPod, and probably, being a Dell product, will suck. (I would know; I, unfortunately, have a Dell laptop.) I have an iPod (for Windows, but its good), and people, if you are looking to a get an MP3 Player that will work and work great, just get an iPod: they're cheaper and better. Don't listen to what Dell is making to compete with it. There is no competition when it comes to Apple.

According to the most recent CIA World Factbook statistics, about 13% of the population of the United States is living below the official federal poverty line: that's about 40,000,000 Americans. Why isn't the administration addressing this?

According to www.GlobalSecurity.org (you can access the link to it here), we have about 71 days until the U.S. military exacts some sort of military action in North Korea and approximately 103 days until a similar action by the United States occurs in Iran; both of these countries, by the way, were a part of the "Axis of Evil," along with Iraq. Speaking of Iraq, this website had a countdown for U.S. military "intervention" in that country, and it predicted it on the nose, almost exactly to the hour. (For North Korea, 71 days points to around Tuesday, December 30, 2003 or Wednesday, December 31, 2003 on the calendar; for Iran, 103 days points to around Thursday, January 30, 2004 or Friday, January 31, 2004.)

I finished reading Michael Moore's new book, aptly titled, Dude, Where's My Country? last night. The sequel to his previous book, Stupid White Men ...And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!, his new book deals with everything from 9/11 to the 2nd Gulf War (you know, that War in Iraq thing), and makes note of the truthfully un-Americanism of the USA PATRIOT Act and even discusses the Democratic candidates for the 2004 election. One of the chapters, entitled, "Woo Hoo! I Got Me a Tax Cut," has Michael Moore talking about how he received a tax cut and how he's spending all of it on getting rid of Bush in 2004.

Kudos, Mr. Moore. And I can't wait for your upcoming film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," which is due to come out sometime next year. (Rumor has it that he is planning to premiere the film on the day before the Presidential election. Brilliant.)

Here are my thoughts about "Ghettopoly," the spoof of Monopoly that features a black thug with a bottle of malt liquor and an Uzi. I've seen the game, and it's sad that people have failed to realize that this is a brilliant satire of how the stereotypes of blacks are portrayed by record labels who promote them. The game pieces, which are a machine gun, a rock of crack, a basketball, and a marijuana leaf, symbolize how blacks are portrayed by rappers and the music industry. (Ever see a music video, NAACP? It's all there.) And, finally, this board game does not offend as much as it shows life, however unfortunate and sad, how it is, and how it's sold to the mainstream.

And now, another "Bushism":

"Free nations are peaceful nations. Free nations don't attack each other. Free nations don't develop weapons of mass destruction."

-- Oct. 3, 2003 (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)


Hmm. Then, by Mr. Bush's logic, the United States is the least free nation in the entire world. Makes sense, right Dubya?

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I present My Pitiful Attempt At Rap:

V1
Fuckin' philistines
Layin' down kerosene
Watch the fire rise
They roll out the scene
As the cops pull up
It ain't what it seems
Believe me, you saw wrong
What you think you saw,
you in the wrong


Chorus
'Cuz I'm in the right
You know I fuckin' am
Don't tell me what you can't back up,
'cuz I can
Ya see here ya got no fight?
Yo' end's in ya line of sight
Aight? Aight?

V2
They see y'all there
Feedin' offa tha government's bleedin' hand
People revoltin', they fed up here
Country's bombin' tha world, 'n invadin' land
We ain't gonna live no mo' in fear
'Cuz we gonna get the fuck outta here,
ya fuckin' hear?

Chorus
'Cuz I'm in the right
You know I fuckin' am
Don't tell me what you can't back up,
'cuz I can
Ya see here ya got no fight?
Yo's end's in ya line of sight
Aight? Aight?

V3
Go to hell, 'an take yo' money
You'll need it, ya fuckin' criminals
of the corporate world
He took the globe and out tha window
hurled
Don't care 'bout fuckas upstairs,
runnin' our fate, runnin' tha hate
Take yo' poison ya sell to millions
and call us in tha mornin'

Chorus
'Cuz I'm in the right
You know I fuckin' am
Don't tell me what you can't back up,
'cuz I can
Ya see here ya got no fight?
Yo' end's in ya line of sight
Aight? Aight?

v4
Hey, gimme that prescription,
I wanna go back to yesterday
When everything was play,
not stop rewind
Fast forward, past this shit
See what happens in 2004,
'n chase this Bush bastard out,
progress 'n prosper no mo'
C'mon, we gon' get to a better world,
some day
But tha question's how

Chorus
'Cuz I'm in the right
You know I fuckin' am
Don't tell me what you can't back up,
'cuz I can
Ya see here ya got no fight?
Yo' end's in ya line of sight
Aight? Aight?

Fuckin' philistines, layin' down
they kerosene
Tha fire's risin', burnin' up tha town
World's sold itself to the Devil,
so it seem

Ann Coulter is such a bitch.
