A Simple Man

I’ve kept it light over the last few weeks because the news is not good and like cooper and the library man both say it is not even news. At hell one earth too. People fret over the most insignificant things while the real news passes them by.

Detainee Legislation Gives President New Powers

This sums it up.

I have a bad case of lethargy.

On the other hand it’s cool and crisp here, post the storms last evening.
Nothing like a few downed trees to stir me into action.

My list.

Fill out Shayna’s questionaire for my interview. I keep meaning to do that but funny thing, everytime I look at it a different song pops into view.

That’s it, the list is short, I am a simple man.

Going to check on Pia’s guests, she is on vacation and her guest are pretty strange.;)

  1. Very strange guests. Agree with you. It’s a working vacation

    Agree with you about the detainees, but Jacob have beome totally lethargic about politics

    Am beginning to believe that we have the government we deserve.

    Exempt Cooper and Jason from this, because they’re about issues and I respect that, but I can’t believe that college students and people in their 20’s aren’t rising in revolt

    When I am Sar’s guest, in two Friday’s I think, will explain why I believe true democracy ended in this country in November, 2000.

    Oh, just did. Have a weird feeling that the midterm elections will be honest, but the 08, elections–not a chance

    Many people believe that having to show ID is a good thing–that 9/11 wouldn’t have happened if we had to, but I believe that it is somewhere in a Constitutional amendment that ID isn’t required for elections. But nobody seems to care about the Constitution anymore

  2. Who are you calling strange???????????? MISTER!!!!!!

    🙂

  3. No not lethargic just taking an internet break from it all.
    Thanks to cooper, in part and my wife on another level, I am actively participating in the campaign for the Democratic candidate for congress here in my county. My wife also belongs , again in part thanks to cooper, to a local organization for women which address issues of women around the world and whose mantra is

    Women In Black New York stand in silent vigil to protest war, rape as a tool of war, ethnic cleansing and human rights abuses all over the world. We are silent because mere words cannot express the tragedy that wars and hatred bring. We refuse to add to the cacophony of empty statements that are spoken with the best intentions yet may be erased or go unheard under the sound of a passing ambulance or a bomb exploding nearby.

    Our silence is visible. We invite women to stand with us, reflect about themselves and women who have been raped, tortured or killed in concentration camps, women who have disappeared, whose loved ones have disappeared or have been killed, whose homes have been demolished. We wear black as a symbol of sorrow for all victims of war, for the destruction of people, nature and the fabric of life.

    Women in Black is an international peace network. Women in Black is not an organization, but a means of mobilization and a formula for action. Women in Black vigils were started in Israel in 1988 by women protesting against Israel’s Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Women in Black has developed in countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany, England, Azerbaijan, Colombia, and in FR Yugoslavia, where women in Belgrade have stood in weekly vigils since 1991 to protest war and the Serbian regime’s policies of nationalist aggression. Women in Black groups have formed in many cities in the United States since September 11th. Women in Black New York have been holding vigils in solidarity with our sisters throughout the world since 1993.

    The internet inspires but sometimes the work is behind the scenes.
