I'm So Tired I Could Eat A Horse and Sleep on the Couch in a Shaft of Sunlight for Days

May 1, 2006

1. Can you believe the shit Norbizness said to me at the water cooler this morning? — “Say, did you know we’re involved in a systemic pattern of torture? Sorry, if you want to bum a smoke off of me, you’re going to have to listen to me talk about the 600 people involved in this travesty. Oh, I am TOO a fun person to be around!” — And I just wanted a cig. and to talk about how much the Sox have sucked over the past five (except for Saturday.)
2. Bush Leverage With Russia, Iran, China Falls as Oil Prices Rise — Bill Cohen: “It’s a geopolitical nightmare. . . . [Such nations as Iran, Russia and China] don’t see us as the colossus that can cause them any harm, either by our economy or by our prestige.”
3. Giving Bush a Pink Slip — Protesters protest OFFAL in New York.
4. Thousands march to stop Darfur killing — Protesters protest Darfur genocide in the US.
5. U.S. Prepares for ‘Day Without Immigrants’ — Protesters protest for immigrant rights.
6. Target as Bad as Wal-Mart? You Decide…in terms of wages and benefits, working conditions, sweatshop-style foreign suppliers, and effects on local retail communities, big box Target stores are very much like Wal-Mart, just in a prettier package.
7. And the article that everyone and their uncle is linking to nowadays: Bush challenges hundreds of laws — I’ll have to find time to read it all sometime.

    Listening to the AP Radio news update the top stories were, in this order:
    – Immigrants protesting
    – Iraqis protesting (for more security)
    – Texans protesting (gas prices force boycott of Exxon)
    – Turkey protesting our use of their country to attack Iran
    – Social security will be bankrupt by 2040

    Whooweee! Sounds like things are headed in the right direction!

    I protest! The world will descend into global-warming-induced-chaos long before 2040. Let’s crack the trust fund open and party hard like it’s 2039!
