The news is bad, my drink is cold

Would you believe recent polling shows the same number of people know about John Edwards’ $400 haircut that know that Iraq did not have Weapons of Mass Destruction?

And that would be right around 45% of people in this country.

Good luck trying to blame that on the liberal media bias, cowboy.

In other fun news:

Today the Council of Europe makes it official: Poland and Romania hosted secret detention facilities on behalf of the CIA.

Oh, how far we’ve fallen from being a “shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.”

Who said that? Ronald Reagan did. Over and over again.

And what are we now?

It ain’t shining. And it ain’t on a hill. It’s buried in the mud down there somewhere in New Orleans’s Ninth Ward.

Heck of a job, Brownie.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Reagan said that, tough break. We all know we haven’t promoted or believed in freedom or democracy as a foreign policy since this nation began. We are a beacon on a hill shining for everyone to see that we promote our own economic imperatives but don’t give a shit about democracy or freedom. The examples are too many to list here, but have you ever wondered why there is an embargo with Cuba but we freely trade with China. Democracy and Freedom are not what we promote, we promote making money. The problem is that our neighbors and fellow citizens have been indoctrinated with the idea that we do what’s “right” and therefore are the good guys, even if we undermine democracy and promote brutal dictators.

  2. The problem is that we as a country are losing a fuck load of money but someone is making a shit load somewhere else. And the fact that it hasn’t gone the way we hoped, shows that just because we wanted to make money doesn’t always mean we will. Once we changed our mission from WMD to supposed democracy promotion it makes things very difficult to pull out due to not making the money we had hoped.
