I hear Saddam has been executed. I also heard that there is some cell phone recording of the incident. I can’t help but imagine that this was planned. How does anyone get away with filming the execution then launching it on the web? It must be some tactic to let all his supporters know that he is 100% dead. I also feel the hearing went on quite quickly. I have really mixed feelings about this whole war, as many other people do.
Apparently the death toll of American soldiers has clocked 3,000. Isn’t that how many dies in the attack that spurred this war? What is the toll on Iraqi civilians? Why does that always get played down? Soldiers signed up to fight and possibly die; they know what they are getting into. I do not have much sympathy for them. But when a kid gets shot or bombed on the way to school, that’s fucked up…
On top of all this we had to loose the Godfather of Soul too, just when he was planning a tour that would take him through Ghana. The man WAS the hardest working man in show business. He had some issues over the last few years but he came up fighting and gave a ton of hope to the people who needed it. And I got to admit that on some days, he just made me FEEL GOOD! There are just not enough positive people on this planet.
The polar ice caps are really melting? This is one of the reasons I do not want to bring any children into this world, unless they can have gills. But seriously, as if I do not have enough to worry about. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and I am still a capitalist pig. I guess one of the reasons I do not like watching the news is because when I do, I feel I have absolutely no control over anything. The actions of a few jar heads in power pretty much dictate my fate on this planet. Even if I actually buy a fantastic beach front property, it could be 25 feet underwater before I even spend a night there. Or worse yet some fascist government or tribal war lord might make it impossible for me to live there. Sometimes I think it is better to just live with hoarse blinds on and enjoy the simple things life has to offer on a day to day basis. Fuck injustice, fuck politicians, fuck opinions, fuck TV, fuck Gillette, fuck war, and fuck peace.
