Welcome all and everyone, to my blog. My cousin has linked me to his most reputable online fashion boutique, and now you all can come here, too. Of course, I have nothing to sell, except for my rantings and insights (which are free). So, make yourself at blog. Check my links, look through my archives, vote on my randomly updated poll, whatever. Enjoy.

President Bush has secretly absconded last night via Air Force One from his ranch in Crawford, TX, to Washington, D.C., and on to Baghdad to give the troops there a needed boost in morale. He assured them that they were fighting for a truly noble cause: "We will win because our cause is just. We will win because we will stay on the offensive." However, it must be asked, Will staying on the offensive in the short-term have beneficial consequences for the long-term? It seems that Operation Iron Hammer will most likely do more harm than good, and probably increase the volitility of the insurgency against our forces in the long run; nevertheless, in the short run, good things should have immediate effect.

I'm sure you all have heard of this: the Republican National Committee has released this ad, which claims that those who are exercising their Constitutional rights of criticizing the President on his policies in Afghanistan and Iraq are actually "attacking" him "for attacking the terrorists." That is not patriotic, RNC, now, isn't it. Disgusting.

Well, according to a quite credible source, which I have cited before (www.GlobalSecurity.org), 44 and 76 days remain until military action of some kind takes place in North Korea and Iran (respectively). Well, they were right about Iraq. I pray it isn't true.

So, right now in the Washington, D.C. area, in which I reside, there are high winds, a huge cold front is passing through, and there are about 100,000 without power (or heat, for that matter). Not very good.

"As the 20th century ended, there were around 120 democracies in the world -- and I can assure you more are on the way."

-- George W. Bush (November 6, 2003)

Does this sound ominous at all? It does to me.

After having seen "The Matrix: Revolutions," all that I can really say about it is that is better than "Reloaded," which was not much better than terrible. Both films are a fair disgrace to "The Matrix" (1999), which is my favorite movie that I have ever seen (number two would probably be "Pi"), but "Revolutions" does an OK job giving the trilogy an acceptable conclusion.
