The sun is shining... It's frigg'en lovely out. I mean... not cold... sigh...
I gotta say, it would have been nice to have weather like this for skiing last week. However... it's March Break for the kids... so I should be happy 'bout nice weather. :D
I woke up in a quiet house... walked over the bed and across the rug to shut the evil beeper up.
I am the ONLY person in my house that wakes up with the alarm... and it's a loud pain-in-the-ass alarm.
I wandered through the routine with total peace and quiet... hahaha... it was nice.
My last moments in the house were giving Suz, Geo and Ed little kisses and saying goodbye...
Suz kinda woke up... Geo was definitely awake... and Edward? I could have dunked him in ice water... and he'd still be asleep. :)

So here's the thing... I'm not totally daft... as so many may think.
I know that I deserve the sound criticisms I get when I relate images of nazi germany to american foreign policy... and the tremendous animosity I seem to solicit by making my regular criticisms of the situation in the middle east... let alone the US involvement there-in. I say that shit because I want to piss people off... I want to make them think... Articulating your anger at me... reveals your beliefs on the issues at hand, and puts the issue on a front burner for you ... even if only for the few minutes that it takes to write me a note calling me a crazy fucker, or suggesting I'm a complete nut case. (and I get a lot of that... :D).
The problem is that I cannot for the life of me... understand what the hell is going on with Americans.
Why are you not rising up and demanding your government smarten the fuck up?
Why are you not protesting the governments involvement in illegal wars?
Why are there not demonstrations rallying the population against the unending flow of American son's and daughters to go and die or be dismembered in the middle east?
HOW CAN YOU LET THIS CONTINUE?
There is a terrible light on the horizon. The future is not a loose mist of unexplained possibility... People with a lot more smarts than I can ever hope for, articulate the reality of the pending Oil crisis in terms that scare the absolute crap out of me. The war on terror (totally misusing the word "terror" by the way) is causing so much terror that I cannot believe people are still falling for the governments line on this issue.
Apologists who tell me that Iraq is soooooo much better off today ... and that the people are happy etc etc etc... Kurds and kids and water and ... shut up!!!! You are being fed a line of crap just like you were when the automakers decided you all needed to drive SUVs. You have an occupying army in a ravaged country that is daily offering up more of it's citizens in a frenzied attempt to wrest control of their nation back from you. Face it. Admit it. And read a UK news paper on-line every now and then. Would it surprise you to hear that CNN is not the last fucking word on truth in news-media?
// ok, I'll stop. I'm sorry this topic is so offensive to so many... but it's my planet too...
