Days and days and days...DAYS AND DAYS!

You Are Sunset
Even though you still may be young, you already feel like you've accomplished a lot in life.And you feel free to pave your own path now, and you're not even sure where it will take you.Maybe you'll pursue higher education in a subject you enjoy - or travel the world for a few years.Either way, you approach life with a relaxed, open attitude. And that will take you far!

Mr. Spector, and other murderers

So, the trial of Mr. Spector ended in a mistrial, with 10 thinking he was guilty, 2 thinking he was innocent.

Early 2008 until another trial, potentially.

Gee, and then only one more year after that before someone who murdered a lot of women could face the court, if perhaps only of public opinion. One can always hope for a class action suit, since, unlike Mr. Rumsfeld, he can't really pass the Bush, er, buck.


>General Pace: Homosexual Activity Is Immoral And Counter To God's Law

> Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, caused a stir at a Senate hearing Wednesday when he said he believes homosexual activity is immoral and should not be condoned by the military. Pace, who retires next week, said he was seeking to clarify similar remarks he made in spring, which he said were misreported.

O...kay. Interesting how Eisenhower, in an infamous case some years ago, realized that, by having a lesbian witch hunt in the army, he'd be eliminating most of his best female officers, seemed to have no problem. OK for Eisenhower, but not for Mr. Pace?

And a person who has, by virtue of being in command, been involved in torture, killing innocent civilians and, well, war in general (no pun intended) has a lot of nerve complaining about immorality and being contrary to the law of the God of the New Testament (the Old Testament, maybe not so much, but, then, some religious tendencies regard the God of the Old Testament as being closer to Satan anyway...). Perhaps your resignation should be stepped up, Peter (and what's with that name, anyway? Sounds like some kind of sexualized stomping fetish...).

Cultural Relativism

As a good little Marxist, I understand that social identity is constructed by the dominant ideology (hegemony, y'all), and that cultural relativism is required (the notion of 'gay' in a Western sense has not always been the sense in other countries - in fact, well within recorded history is when a shift can be perceived...and, for that matter, the notion of 'gay' as a separate identity is also pretty new over here...the notion of a private life dates from around the Industrial Revolution - the first time you could probably live on your own separate from the family collective...)

Still, when the President of Iran says that there are no gays in Iran, would this be before or after the executions of persons associated with said acts?

And, as to who we heard this ridiculous notion of there being gays in Iran, people who escaped? Amnesty International? Reports from Westerners within Iran? So many sources - so very FEW of them official state organs. What CAN that be saying about the state of affairs in Iran?

(having said this, the witch trial of Larry Craig indicates it ain't all that much better in the US - yes, I know he's repugnant - however, what he did was NOT illegal in Minnesota, and I would just LOVE to see the State's charges stick...especially given that catty investigator's official report (which, to me, casts the cop in a much bitchier and gayer role than Mr. Craig...)).

If, as Miss Schwarzenegger says, she is going to veto the gay marriage bill, one can't help but wonder...given that she has said she thinks same sex marriage should only happen between a man and a woman, might she be persuaded/deluded into outlawing heterosexual marriages too? The mind twinkles with mischief... :)

Imagine that...I could almost have guessed...

So I heard that four countries did not accept the declaration on native rights made in the UN last week.

Needless to say, I knew one of them was Canada (I don't watch the news much, but even I couldn't miss that one...).

And I imagined another would be Australia.

Surprise surprise that the US was another one.

I didn't know much about New Zealand, but I suppose I shouldn't have been shocked...

Both sad and predictable (the worst kind of sorrow).

Anyone planning to develop in Caledonia, Ontario had best cool his jets for a while...preferably switch them off or crash them into the ground (but not near Caledonia), really....

Surprised, but not...

After watching a bit of the Bush pep rally last night on Fox (and is it only ME who thinks Petraeus sounds like either one of the monkeys on PLANET OF THE APES or a failed Greek general from ancient times?), I was surprised that the Fox commentator tried, at the end, to imagine what the Democratic response would be.

I was NOT surprised that, unlike the other networks, Fox then did not actually GO to any Democrat for a response, but returned to original programming probably at least five minutes before the other channels did...
