Leave It To Peever

­­ Bumper sticker of the week: Reality is a crutch for people who can't handle drugs.

­­ Quote of the week:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly.

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these sunken eyes and learn to see.

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly,

Into the light of a dark black night.

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly,

Into the light of a dark black night.--

Blackbird, Paul McCartney

­­ I can see this holiday season is going to be wrapped up in the American flag and topped off with a hardy dose of patriotism. Rather than a celebration of Christ's birth and his message of compassion, kindness, love, and forgiveness, this season will more likely be a celebration of America's military might, demonstrating power, revenge, death, and injustice. This is the third conflict in a row where the opposing side has no weapons that can come close to matching our high-tech arsenal. The only defense these countries can muster up is to turn our own outdated weapons against us, which some government genius has sold to the enemy. So this holiday season take a moment to reflect. Close your eyes, take a deep breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth, and repeat after me: The Peever is not a commie, The Peever is not a commie.

­­ Remember, the art of listening involves not talking.

­­ God grant me the energy to change everything humanly possible, and the wisdom to know how and when.

­­ Bushworld's new health-care plan: W. George has a plan to cover all the newly unemployed people left without health insurance after the September 11th terrorist attack sent us spiraling into a recession that he had predicted months before. His plan is to take money out of the State Children's Health Insurance Plan, to the tune of $11 billion, and put it into his new plan, which is a part of his economic stimulus package he has developed as a result of the September 11 terrorist attack, the evil that caused the recession, which he had predicted months earlier. S.C.H.I.P. provides coverage for the uninsured children of low-wage families. So he robs poor kids in order to move forward a plan he has to cover terrorist induced unemployment, which he predicted would happen long before September 11. Welcome to Bush World.

The pharmaceutical industry in America is the most profitable industry in the country and spends the most on advertising. The average cost of a prescription in the U.S.: $45. God Bless America.

­­ A ''War of Dreams'' for right-wing politicians and their corporate buddies:--

Let the looting of the treasury begin. We need arms, rules and a militarized country, from homeland to outer space.--

Expand the FBI, CIA, DIA, anything connected to strengthening the police state. Personal liberties and democratic ideals are out.

­­ Take money away from our domestic programs and place that money into programs fighting terrorism and promoting corporate welfare.

­­ Keep the above agenda going, perhaps forever. Bush and Co. are out to vanquish terrorists, particularly those who have no oil. You're either with us, or against us.
