Happy Veterans Day!

Wow, yesterday was the USMC 230th birthday. Today is Veterans day. What’s next? Do we have anything queued up for Monday?

Got to sleep in a little today, sat around and did nothing which turns out is a shame since it was hotter today than it was a couple of times in September. Ah well, thats what vacation days are good for. Doing nothing.

Washington Monument Closed due to Bomb Scare

Appearantly I’ve had my head in the clouds this weekend as this is the first I’ve heard of a bomb scare at the Washington Monument. In fact, I was doing a little research on the Monument on Wikipedia and the history page listed it as being shut down on October 7th 2005 due to a bomb scare. That’s last Friday I thought. Where was I?

In any case, there was no bomb. Just a bomb threat. This is beginning to get a little rediculous. Why can’t we go without the threats? Why does New York have to mobilize such great numbers of officers to police the subway? Because of these silly bastards that think that violence will change the way the United States does business.

Message to the silly bastards: You’re the dumbest Fuckers I ever heard of. Why on earth would the United States of America change any of it’s policies towards other countries, the planet, your mother just because you blow up, or threaten to blow up someone or something? That’s just plain stupid. Look where it got Osama. Or Saddam for that matter. Go home to your wives and children and live a happy life. Your GOD will thank you as will mine.

Katrina not worthy of the worlds Aid?

So why is it that when third world countries in southeast Asia get hit hard by a natural disaster that every other country in the world demands that everyone else gives aid and now that the U.S.A is hit by the largest natural disaster in many years nobody wants to give to our aid except for Israel?


Just because we are a world power does not mean that this hasn’t brought us to our knees. Al Queda could never come up with something to affect us in the same way. Where are the other countries who call themselves our allies? If they had a disaster like this, do you think they would hesitate to ask for help? Or do you think that the U.S. would hesitate to offer it? NO.

Maybe it’s time to get the damn U.N. off of U.S. soil and tell them all to go fark(trying to keep it clean) themselves. We’ll do it all ourselves. Just like we did in World War I and World War II and just like we are doing in the Middle East now(aside from the token troops from other countries except for the U.K. who gets props.).

For those of you who actually do want to help, I suggest donations to your favorite charity, and if you don’t have a favorite, try out the American Red Cross.

Katrina’s effects widely felt

The effects of Hurricane Katrina and the devastation that she left in her wake is felt most accutely in the gulf states, but even way up here in North Dakota we feel her. Gas has skyrocketed to over $3.00 a gallon where it was $2.69 on Sunday. One of my employers vendors is actually headquartered in New Orleans, which has caused quite the stir trying to find a temporary replacement for their services while they recuperate. Of course, by the looks of things, recuperation might be a long time coming.

If you can, Please visit www.redcross.org and make a donation to the relief effort. I have a feeling that they are gonna need all that we can give.
