Liar. Liar. Pants on fire.

– Bumper sticker of the week: We don’t want a bigger piece of the pie. We want a different pie.

– Quote of the week: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us… And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." Nelson Mandela

– Some simple tips to help get you through life:

• God has nothing to do with the follies of man. He or She set us free.

• Don’t accept this apocalypse bull. It’s the rich man’s way to exploit the world for profit. Seeing we’re going to all be dead anyway.

• Drink some coffee, have a beer or two, eat a good steak every once in a while. Remember, don’t do anything in excess.

• If someone tells you they know the truth, run.

• Remember, kids make mistakes. So did you.

• If you want to try to change the way others behave, become a therapist. Otherwise, forget it. What you see is likely what you get.

• Don’t go looking for a mate at the bar.

• Look for something greater than yourself to believe in. If all you believe in is humans, you’re in for a life of despair.

• Read as much as you can.

• Every day, try to do something for someone else.

• Remember, money can’t buy you love.

– Speaking of love:

• Love comes in a variety of flavors, none of them violent.

• Love has been misused and abused so much that it is hard to tell the real deal from make-believe.

• Love means having to say you’re sorry, probably countless times.

• Never get married just for love, cause it can wear awful thin, awful quick.

• They say love makes the world go round. I say it’s gravy.

• Love can take you a long way. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s down the wrong road.

• Still, if I had to choose between love and hate, I’d take love. I hate hate.

– If we don’t get universal health care in the next 8 years, this country is going to come apart at the seams, stitch by stitch, so to speak.

– Cialis: If you have an erection for more than 4 hours, call Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

– A bankrupt nation: Amnesty International charges the United States is "bankrupt of vision and bereft of principle." "Sacrificing human rights in the name of security at home, turning a blind eye to abuses abroad, and using pre-emptive military force where and when it chooses have neither increased security nor ensured liberty." Welcome to Bush World.

– Another mistaken report: Colin Powell is apologizing for a report on terrorism that claimed attacks and deaths are down worldwide as a result of the administration’s war on terrorism. Seems the report was not quite accurate, which seems to be a daily occurrence anymore. Mistakes had mysteriously found their way into the document. And no one quite seemed to know how. Tragic, how this constantly happens. As it works out, terrorist attacks and resulting deaths are higher than ever. Darn the luck.

– Michael Moore’s movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" receives R-rating: Gee, it shows dead bodies and human misery. The news never gets an R-rating. How about when they mounted Saddam Hussein’s two dead sons and showed them to all the world? I didn’t see any R-rating on that. Since this is a scathing documentary on Bush and his cronies, you can start to see the strings being pulled. Karl Rove is working overtime to keep this baby off the screen. Moore is going to try to have it changed to PG-13. Demand that this picture be shown in town. Take your kids, whatever the outcome of the rating. Our children need to see that people actually die in war. They need to understand who these nitwits are that are in control of the country. Our children’s lives are going to be affected by what’s going on for decades to come. Let them see the BushWorld they don’t get to see on corporate TV.
