Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Don't tread on me
First off, let me apologize to the 3 people who actually read this blog for my recent lack of posts. I have been ill and unable to sit in my computer chair (henceforth known as the Torturous Seat of Doom) and doped up on painkillers besides. Not exactly conducive to essay writing. And there’s been a ton going on out in the larger world… you know, beyond my keyboard.

3 days ago there was an anti-war demonstration in DC that was 100,000 strong. Even though the stumbling demented child king that is our President wasn’t there, the large turnout gives me hope that this country is finally starting to wake up. I am also pleased that only a "few hundred" people showed up to support Bush. Smirky Q. Fuckup was "monitoring" the hurricane Rita situation from Colorado. Wonder what costume he was playing dress up in?
Ol' Brownie spent six hours blaming FEMA's feeble response after Katrina on the Democratic leadership of New Orleans with absolutely no mention of his own magnificent incompetence. I guess he didn't see how the media bent over and begged to be reamed again after Bush sorta kinda in a roundabout way took responsiblity for the clusterfuck... as much as the federal government was responsible anyway. The fact that the arrogant fuckwad who couldn't think of even one mistake he'd ever made offered up this meaningless nerfed mea culpa shocked the media stupid. Or more so than usual.
Speaking of stupid, those Intelligent Design asshats are once again getting press, this time because a school board in Pennsylvania is trying to defend the teaching of this "theory" in public schools. They don't see this as a problem, and just love to imply that there's a fierce debate among scientists as to the veracity of evolution. News flash... there isn't. ID proponents know they don't have one minimal scrap of proof for their theory, so instead do their damndest to poke holes in evolution and then consider this "debate". In another school district in PA (what the hell is in the water there?) it is now a law that science teachers must discuss the inspirational poem "Footprints in the Sand". Let me repeat that... science teachers are being told they must discuss an inspirational poem. As if our country wasn't dumb enough. Rational, reasoning thought was unavailable for comment, as it was curled into a fetal ball and screaming in pain. I found it amusing that while these wastes of sperm are busily trying to theocratize our country, a recent study is saying that "religious belief can cause damage to a society, contributing towards high murder rates, abortion, sexual promiscuity and suicide".
According to the study, belief in and worship of God are not only unnecessary for a healthy society but may actually contribute to social problems.

The study counters the view of believers that religion is necessary to provide the moral and ethical foundations of a healthy society.
I've said it before and I'll repeat it now: if there's anything in this country that needs to be regulated, if not banned outright, it is religion.
And lastly, one of the plethora of criminals in the Bush camp has got his nuts in a ringer. Tom Delay, a blight on society if there ever was one, has been indicted. Of course, even though he's been warned by the House Ethics committee 3 times already in the recent past, this is nothing more than the Democrats being their sneaky snarky selves, and wasting honest Texas Repuglican's tax money.
DeLay has denied committing any crime and accused the Democratic district attorney leading the investigation, Ronnie Earle, of pursuing the case for political motives.
DeLay, 58, also is the center of an ethics swirl in Washington. The 11-term congressman was admonished last year by the House ethics committee on three separate issues and is the center of a political storm this year over lobbyists paying his and other lawmakers' tabs for expensive travel abroad.
I can't remember the last time I have so fervently wished for someone to be sent to the proverbial "pound me in the ass" prison. Keep your fingers crossed.
