though to the best of my knowledge he doesn’t know it.
Roiling through the blogosphere in a slow boil is the fact that the Administration has been caught red-handed engaged in the crime of the precise kind of torture that we tried and convicted Japanese for after WWII … and for the mess media, the oligopress, its not really any big deal.
And of course it wouldn’t be. Avoiding absolutes of right and wrong is precisely what the “he said / she said” style of journalism is supposed to avoid. And there cannot be anything more absolute than the question of whether you will engage in torture … no ends every justify means that do not work, so torture is not only an evil, but an evil that can never be justified on the basis of preventing any greater evil.
The only word I can use to describe it is abomination.
This little tale started itself about a dozen years ago. It was originally a couple of pages, a background for a D&D character. Then came a dream or three which added so much more. Life & Death interfered for many years. I’ve begun dreaming of this tale again, recently. This will eventually be a book, I hope.
So please, go get yourself a tall cold beverage, adjust your reading glasses and settle into your comfy chair and join me in the City of Colours…
His conversation with Ylrial, the Goldsmith, of the previous evening replays clearly in his mind as he drifts into that place between reality and dreams. His viewpoint shifts suddenly and he is outside himself, somehow high above and looking down on himself. It is as if he was another being entirely, sitting on a ledge high in the cavernside, looking down on the dwarf and man conversing.
” Well, they are off on their own adventure. It gets harder and harder each time. Maybe I’m just getting old. Let us move to the far side of the fire, it is less damp there. ”
” You! Old? Why you’re just a youngling!” states the old man, settling himself more comfortably into the cushioned barrel chair.
That is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, effectively admitting on Larry King’s program that she is chummy with a mass murderer and dictator. That is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, dissing the mother of a soldier killed in her friend’s war of choice, because she has “a day job.”
And what job is that, exactly? Aiding and abetting tyrants — war criminals — as they continue to torture, wage illegal war, spy on us, and collapse our economy. And that’s not even half of the list of crimes committed by the shrub-gargoyle regime.
Shirley Golub is a Democrat challenging Pelosi for the California-8th District primary in June. She has the guts to say what no other member of the Democratic Party will: that the Speaker of the House is a craven coward. I think Pelosi is beyond cowardice; she is complicit — an embodiment of evil, the very kind now doing so much damage to our country and our world.
Cindy Sheehan was the face of the anti-war movement in America as it helped propel the Democratic Party back into political power for the first time in over a decade. And when she reaized that the Democrats had simply used us to obtain power, that they had no intention of changing the status quo, she was compelled to act in the only way she could: campaign to unseat Pelosi.
I am urging each and every member of this web site to donate to these two Ladies, to make every effort to help them defeat Pelosi and send her sniveling back to the dog house she shares with Barney the Scottish Terrier. No one who professes friendship with the dictator who has wrought so much pain and suffering should be allowed to hold power. No one who so callously and arrogantly dismisses the mother of a slain soldier should be allowed to walk the halls of Congress. No one who so criminally undermines the duties placed upon her by the Constitution of the United States should be allowed to show her face in D.C.
Ms. Golub and Ms. Sheehan are the best chance we have of removing the biggest obstacle to impeachment, and the most prominent enabler of the occupation and the regime that is dismantling our democracy. Let’s help them topple Pelosi.

We were, literally, made to love each other. Your Preacher disapproved it, your Gubmint boo-hoos it, yeah yeah yeah. It is tittered at and whispered about, it is taboo’d, verbotten, and discouraged on the surface of our silly society….even as its waves and tides wash over each and everyone of us every minute of every day and affects everything we do see and think about with it’s primal pull from deep in our loins to the top of our brain chemistry.
Whether you believe in evolution or in a God created world….There is nothing more natural than sex…in fact sex IS nature. Nature has one goal, to regenerate life through…sex. Whatever the ‘life force’ is that animates EVERYTHING on this planet, it is expressed in its purest form as sexual energy. Unless of course, you don’t believe in science, and it is all caused by the will of some big guy with a beard sitting on a throne in the clouds causing and ruling all life through his power and will. And who decided in his infallible wisdom, that SEX was the way that all life should be produced. That’s right! God chose and invented sex!. And yet, Gods ‘chosen’ minions on earth have been repressing God’s choice…God’s will, for thousands of years. If sex is so bad, why did God choose it?
We think about it all the time, and our bodies are constantly producing, secreting and distributing sexual signals that are imperceptible to our ‘higher selves.’ Yet denial and hypocrisy is the way our society deals with anything even vaguely sexual. Unless of course, it is used to sell a product.
