Promises, Promises

May 30th, 2006 · No Comments

President Bush had vowed to re-assess the need to keep killing Americans in Iraq — nevertheless stopping short of promising withdrawal of them — after the Iraqis set up their own (hehehe) government. Today, it appears, he has completed that task. Yahoo!’s AP news feed reports: U.S. moves 1,500 reserve troops to Iraq. While it […]

Be Frightened

May 26th, 2006 · No Comments

Why should you be frightened? Because that’s what “they” want. It’s hard to know these days whether “they” in the last sentence is the Bush Administration, which repeatedly uses the news of horrible terrible things that might just possibly happen somewhere in the universe, maybe, if everyone isn’t properly behaving. And properly behaving, of course, […]

Well, in some ways — not many that actually affect me and my blogging experience, but in ways that apparently made things better for other bloggers — the last upgrade of MovableType contained some improvements. MovableType, of course, is the software that powers this blog. Unfortunately, the Powers That Be over at MovableType thought that […]

May 23rd, 2006 · No Comments

Yahoo! reports that a high school in Illinois is going to start monitoring students’ blogs. On the one hand, I understand this. People want to feel safe. They want their children to be safe. Yet I can’t help but wonder what the world would have been like if the Founders of this nation — who […]

As I’m tied up studying for the California State Bar Examination, there’s not much time for other activities, particularly blogging.

It may be about time to change this category name from “The Bush Regime” to what the Bush Regime goal for America is quickly becoming: “Police State.” Yahoo! News today reports that President Bush has decided to militarize the United States borders — well, the one between us and the brown people, anyway. What many […]

Sleep

May 14th, 2006 · No Comments

Well, last Monday was the last Final Examination of my law school career — unless I really blew Wills & Trusts! This week, for some reason, all I’ve wanted to do is sleep. I’m simply exhausted. Somehow, though, I’m going to have to muster a bit more strength. I’ve got this little pop quiz coming […]

Abuser-In-Chief

May 6th, 2006 · No Comments

Well, Peter Goss has been given the ax. Oh, sure, I know, I know. The White House and Mr. Goss are telling us that he resigned willingly. Uh, right. Mr. Goss had to go; he wasn’t enough of a patsy, apparently. Stand up to the Administration’s Bad Boys and you’re going to get your ass […]
