Ghosts of Outrage: The Dragnets
Mr. President, what are you going to do about this?
Forgive and forget?
Talk about "reform"?
Talk about "the future, not the past" "tomorrow, not yesterday"?
Or, perhaps, keep it running while claiming otherwise?
Again, Mr. President, what are you going to do about this?
Ah, yes. Let us take the word of your new Attorney General, Eric Holder (the man who once flouted an 11th Circuit Court ruling and then defended
the violent paramilitary law enforcement thugs who waved M-16 rifles at a terrified little boy named Elian Gonzales). During his confirmation hearing this week, Mr. Holder said
your Administration will defend
congressional legislation granting immunity from civil prosecution to the telecoms that helped the government spy on us. It seems the new Attorney General of the United States has quite a fetish for defending the big and strong against the small and powerless.
In Mr. Holder's ominous and loaded words at the confirmation hearing, "I don't think we would reverse course."
I suspect my question, 'What are you going to do about this?' has been answered, Mr. President.
We must not reverse course.
The Dark Wraith yells, "Full speed ahead!"
It seems that while the USS America is listing badly, the captain is jamming out on his Blackberry, so he's not listening to a word you've said. Too bad we sold the lifeboats to China, along with the life preservers.
Ah, but the deck chairs still haven't slid off the side, yet, trog.
As such, the band plays on.
The Dark Wraith bellows, "ENCORE!"
I might be okay as soon as I barf my spleen out. I'll keep you all posted.
We thus conclude what may be considered the very worst diet regimen on the planet; Well, except for the N. Koreans, where tree bark is the main course. I didn't know eating grass can kill you.
Good morning, trog.
It's not the grass; it's the fiber.
I am not a fan of high-fiber diets. It's a personal thing, mind you, but grass is right up there on the list of things I don't eat.
Ditto for tree bark.
Cheeseburgers are another matter entirely. So is Spam. Coffee is good, too.
The lesson is simple: eat what Nature intended for humans to eat. We stand on two legs; ergo, we should eat food designed for bipedal animals.
(And, no, I have no better idea than anyone else concerning what I'm rambling about, here.)
The Dark Wraith should probably brew some more coffee.
Risking eternal damnation by the epicureans here, I'm on a Marie Callender's turkey pot pie kick, and I am astounded by how good most of the line is. (The beef one, meh.) 8and a half minutes, 5 for cooling, and you have one very crispy, perfectly done pie. I usually doctor 'em up with some diced chicken and mixed veggies; Ummm. They were on sale at Walmart, so I stocked up, as one pie is more than adequate to fill you up; At $2 bucks a person, you can't beat it.
I already had some coffee so I don't have an excuse. -.-
Good afternoon, trog.
Yes, pot pies are good. I can get these cheapo, sort of generic brand for about 75 cents each, although I can make my own about as cheaply and throw in more food. I've also been into making shepherd's pie: a large one can do three or four suppers.
Still, though, I long for the days when I could buy a Swanson fried chicken TV dinner. Those were good.
Times change, and we have to adapt. I'm still working on new ways to make Ramen noodles a flavor sensation.
I'll let you know if I come up with anything other than diced chunks of fried Spam in it.
The Dark Wraith knows how to live the frugal gourmet lifestyle.
