I am writing from Dallas, Texas with the intent to shake things up. This blog will be political and I am a liberal, left, labor Democrat. Male, born the first year of World War II in the middle of America I am sick at heart about the state of my country and need to rant. Join in.

Name:
Location: Dallas, Texas, United States

For the longest time I was a carpenter, then a fisherman, then an engineer. I read a lot. I was married for 28 years, until death did us part. My son sustains me, and, at an age that makes it a silly thing to say, I have a girl friend.

Saturday, November 12, 2005

So, its November, the 11th month of the 5th year of the Bush tragedy/farce. The theme for the last several weeks has been incompetence and depravity. Mr. Brown of FEMA neglected the gulf coast because he had reservations at a very snooty Washington eatery and emailed his secretary to stall the hurricane. Not quite 'let them eat cake' but disturbingly close. For the whole of the year, and for quite a while before that, we were having a discussion about torture that was, I thought, multifaceted. Al Gozales though the idea of torture's illegality was "quaint" and advised W that it would be perfectly all right as long as the torturers did not cause "organ failure". Bush as General Dreedle "What do you mean I can't have them shot?" Gonzales "I'm sorry sir did I say 'can't'? Silly me."

Lindsey Graham is afraid that the victims of illegal detention and, according to rumor, torture in Guantanimo, will clog the courts with their silly determination to be treated like human beings. Obviously we can't have that so LG is proposing, and getting passed, an ammendment suspending Habeas Corpus. Despite the fact that Article I Section 9 paragraph 2 of the Constitution cleary says "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it. Why, dear reader, did you ever expect these people to honor the constitution? They consider it a suicide pact.

John, I was looking through other bloggers who list a preference for Townes Van Zandt and came across your name. The interesting part is all the other similarities. My blog doesn't show my last name but it is Morris and I was born and grew up in Dallas. We are pretty close on the political spectrum as well. It was almost like reading my own thoughts. I was born 3 months before the start of WWII. 8/31/41 to be exact. Seems we are both Virgos. Wonder if there are other things we share.

Dwain Ingalls is an asshole.

If you really knew Dwain Ingals, you would not say he is an "asshole." You would say he is a "mother-fucking asshole."

But in the rather inbred little community in Alabama where Dwain was "born," he is known primarily as a pervert. Once, or oncet, as Dwain would say, on a pack trip through the Cumberland Gap, I woke to find him having sex with two of our little burros at oncet.

Mister, where I come from, it's only one burro at a time! Dwain would just pull those cute little straw hats down over their eyes, and have his way with them. He said they were prettier than his sisters, had better personal hygiene, and could handle a bigger load.

Since Dwain started working for Abercrombie & Fitch, he has moved up to mules, ponies, and, when he can afford it, a quarter horse.

If you go in there to try and redeem that $500 coupon, and you detect a strong equine odor and notice some guy down on all fours, just get out of there fast!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a
captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having
problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move
to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on various websites for about
a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey excellent website! Does running a blog like this require a massive amount work?

I have virtually no understanding of programming however I
was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask.
Kudos!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
or two images. Maybe you could space it out
better?

I'm really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work?

I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I
can share my personal experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?
