Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
My dogs were nestled, all snug in “MY” bed,
While visions of chewie toys danced in their heads.

New York transit strike: `Cowardly,’ mayor says

Why would millionaire owners and managers call working class people cowardly? Isn’t it the duty of individuals to work and sometimes strike for an honest wage? Isn’t it our duty to make sure that upper management greed doesn’t destroy companies?

There are those that call union organization socialist and communist. Call it what you want. I’m for any organization that fights for it’s employees rights. If management can’t seem to understand that paying it’s top executive peers hundreds of millions of dollars each year isn’t greedy while the lowest paid workers can’t afford to pay their rent each month, then we’ve got a long way to go.

It’s about time that the silly Democrats on Capital Hill started trying to make some waves.

It seems that all they want to do is to sit timidly by while The King and his Court trample over the Constitution. Remember “Checks and Balances” guys? YOU are the CHECK that provides the balance. Now get off of your lazy arses and subpoena some records.

Democrats call for investigation of NSA wiretaps

Monday, December 19, 2005; Posted: 4:55 a.m. EST (09:55 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN)—Democratic House leaders called Sunday for an independent panel to investigate the legality of a program President Bush authorized that allows warrantless wiretaps on U.S. citizens, according to a letter to House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

“We believe that the President must have the best possible intelligence to protect the American people, but that intelligence must be produced in a manner consistent with our Constitution and our laws, and in a manner that reflects our values as a nation,” the letter says.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; Minority Whip Steny Hoyer; Rep. John Conyers, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee; and Rep. Henry Waxman, the ranking member on the House Committee on Government Reform, signed the letter.

I need help trying to roll back the implementation of Daylight Saving Time in NJ.

I anyone has an idea how I can start this, I’d appreciate it.

Daylight Saving Time does nothing for anyone as far as I understand it. The gov. claims that it helps save gasoline. Better fuel economy standards would do a better job of that.

The gov claims that it is for the children. It is better having our kids at the bus stop in the dark? How is that better?

Writing a Book. ( title 5150)

Here is an excerpt from the first few pages


>>>>>I know this may be the very last flight that I might ever take. The airport is congested, as usual. People busy about performing the duties of ants as prescribed by the queen. See luggage, retrieve luggage, carry luggage, get cab travel more. Greet, shake hands, exchange niceties, move along in line, and smile. Point a to point b, new point; new life, baptized, blessed, cursed, vacation, honeymoon, anniversary, death: yes death that is my favorite. Everyone in his or her own world, traveling to unknown destinations. Some may be terrorist, bankers, businessmen, housewives, or students. All the people, individuals, with some agenda and something important to do, or someone to meet are busy with excitement and happiness of a new adventure or memory in life. I have nothing important to do and this may be my very last flight I take. I am insignificant. When I am gone from this world there won’t be a stain to tattoo the history of my presence of past chaos.

This surprised the poop out of me!

I would have never thought that this administration would approve the torture ban. Now, we’ve got to find out just who is being flown around the world in the ‘extraordinary rendition plane Gulfstream N379P.

White House backs torture ban law
Guantanamo inmate and guards
US interrogation policies have been under scrutiny since 2001
President George Bush has withdrawn his opposition to legislation banning cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment of terrorist suspects.

He said it would show the world that the US did not use torture.
