I know that numbers can say

anything… a recent Zogby poll says: that 43% of it’s 905 likely voter sample would consider impeachment if they found that Mr. Bush lied about the reasons for war. (25% of Republicans polled said they would consider impeachment.).

This mentioned on MSNBC’s Countdown.

Nostalgia

June 30, 2005 at 3:40 PM (Uncategorized)

This post at Tennesee Guerilla Women, makes me wish I could still imbibe. Those meds that Cruise hates so much mean that I shall not drink even the single margarita every six months again. But the game sounds fun.

Against all those evil influences that

June 30, 2005 at 2:24 PM (Commercials) (, )

will corrupt our children.

Violence?

Nah.

Sex?

Hardly.

Gay Marriage?

No, my friends I come before you today glad that the real threat that has been slipping into our children’s drinking water for generations has been held back by the forces who defend their sacred playtime.

No. More. Naked. Kool-Aid.

I remember when I was an unindoctrinated little mite, when I saw Kool-Aid on TV the nasty grinning Kool-Aid jug *had no pants!* Who *knows* how seeing the occasional pantsless Kool-Aid add during Saturday morning cartoons has corrupted me, and twisted my thought processes. But Today…I can be relieved because I spotted the kahki’s (little nod to the military, hey there Kool-Aid?) with a button and fly on my Kool-Aid ad. The jug now has pants over it’s legs.

Now I know that corporate America has children’s best interests at heart while trying to turn them into sugar junkies (eyeroll).

An attempt by Tennessee to save its ***

June 30, 2005 at 1:46 PM (TennCare)

Over at the Geotenncare site, is a notation that now Tennesee has magically produced a contract with a mail order pharmacy to provide drugs for disenrollees for six months.

Just until early 2006, when the governor can add back in the poor disenrollees (except those who *die* in the meantime and save him the expense) just in time for an election year spate of bigheartedness.

Pardon me whilst I throw up.

Standards and inconsistency

June 29, 2005 at 12:29 PM (Uncategorized)

One of my favorite blogs has a standard for linkage that they will not link to anyone that has any ads of any sort running on the blog, on the grounds that they don’t want to support corporate America in any way shape or form. Which is why they aren’t listed on the right. I read ’em every day, they’re in my favorites,but since by having an ad I’m automatically a lesser life form, the only thing I can do is not link.

Well, some of us have to be a bit more day to day, a bit more pragmatic. As another of my favorite blogs says, just above her ad “Sue me, I’m broke.”

But I do have my absolutes that I’ll fight against.

I’m a sci fi person. Love it all. I’ve been anticipating “War of the Worlds,” with great interest. And I won’t be going.

After Mr. Cruise’s loopy anti-psychiatry rant basically saying that anyone who relied on medication was a misinformed loser, I don’t need to lose eight bucks on his film.

I recognize that we’ve become a pill happy society, and I’m against medication as the first, immediate solution to anything. For *some* people, *some* of the time, it’s the right thing, and for an even smaller minority (myself incluided), it is *the* thing that keeps me functional. (And even for me late in the dosing cycle right before another is due, I can see the old negative soup of volatile emotions peeking around the edges). It doesn’t keep me all pink clouded or stoned, it’s just a way to get to and stay on that life raft of “normal.”

Mr. Cruise needs to stick to mesmerizing his latest girlfriend and keep his trap shut about a science he disavows.
