Welcome to my little corner of the WWW. There's not a
whole lot here right now, just a few links and stuff I find
interesting. I also will be posting some of my own
writings and rantings. The music you hear is "Happy
Days Are Here Again" which is a very appropriate song for these
times, now that we have a legitimate occupant of 1600
Pennylvania Avenue after eight long years of His Fraudulency's
Reign of Error.

Places I like to visit on the WWW:
Mercury Rising: This is a blog run by Phoenix Woman, one of my friends from TableTalk, and a couple other people.
Eschaton and Tbogg. These two are
well-known, popular blogs from current and former TTers, both of
whom have earned my admiration and respect for their perspectives
I Believe George W. Bush Is Not a Christian. Is George
Walker Bush a Christian? Read this and decide for yourself.
Generic Rant Form Need to stop a mine or toxic waste
dump or whatever. Use this convenient fill-in-the-blank form
The Dumb Chimp. If you're old enough to remember Monty Python, then you'll get a kick out of this one. It is a take-off on the infamous Dead Parrot sketch done so brilliantly by John Cleese and Michael Palin. This one is "updated" for the 21st Century, with the Chimperor in mind.
Thread This is a thread about reports from Ground Zero where
people could report on what was happening in their towns,
precincts, states, etc. In hindsight, much of what was
written on this thread turned out to be spot on. I just wish
people had listened.
Thread. This is a thread I created in April of 2003
about the various psychological maladies that afflict the Great
Leader. There are some very interesting and perceptive posts
and links here.
Attack of the Burma Shavers Burma Shave-type slogans and verse about the election of 2000.
Thread About W's Religion This is a thread about the issue
of whether George Bush really is a Christian.
The "What Do We Call Dubya" Thread. This is a thread from 2001 about what we should call George Walker Bush. Some of the various nicknames, epithets, put-downs, etc. are funny and spot-on. Worth the read!
A Very Prescient Thread About George Bush Remember the incident a year before the election when a reporter put Bush on the spot by asking him who the leaders of four different countries were? This is a thread about that incident and its ramifications (Junior failed miserably, if you recall). Some of the people who posted on this thread were eerily prescient in what they said about Bush and the election, as subsequent events showed.
"What-If" Thread: One Candidate Gets the PV And The Other Gets
the EV As the title suggests. This thread discussed
that possibility and there are some very perceptive, cogent posts
here about the election, strategies each campaign might undertake
if this actually happened, etc. Worth reading.
