After weeks of huffing and puffing the Democrats on the 9/11 Commission get to question the President, and two of them leave early.

I wonder how many millions have been spent on this farce?

The luck of the Irish.

Hey, I enjoyed it!

I miss college.

What do you do when you can't squeeze enough out of the airport? Why, sell cocaine, of course.

This makes me terribly sad.

Just in case you ever forget, here's what we're facing.

Has anyone checked whether the killer gave Marvin a bribe?

Hmmmm. A good idea on what to do about the wild fauna in my backyard.

An amazingly clear (French!) take on the Israeli/Palestinian situation.

Sunday, April 18, 2004

Sometimes you just have to pity Palestinian stupidity.

First, Arafat approves the killing of Americans who've come to the Gaza Strip to hand out scholarships. To send a message to America.

America confirms that Arafat approved the killings and goes on record as no longer supporting a Palestinian "right of return" to Israel.

Then, Israel takes out the new leader of Hamas, and the US decides not to condemn the action. That's enough for the Palestinians: it's Bush's fault. God forbid they consider how many Israelis they've killed with their homicide bombers. Maybe they're getting advice from the Kerry campaign.

A sign that the Isrealis are winning: the new leader of Hamas is not advertising his identity. Never mind, he'll be known soon enough.

Finally, after decades of appeasement, the US finally has a President who understands that accomodating Palestinian demands only leads to more violence. Give him four more years to get the policy fully established, and we could actually see Middle East peace in the next 50 years.

Palestinian leaders are going to have to realize that if they threaten Israel with extinction, they'll get an Israeli rocket for payment and no American condemnation. I think also that eventually they'll have to realize that if they threaten the US, it'll be an American rocket that sends them to their 72 virgnis.

Meanwhile, the EU tries to have it both ways.

I guess bin Ladin can now ask for North America, as well as al Andalus.

I wonder why this isn't making any news in Atlanta?

Ex-President of Ireland and ex-High Commisioner of the UNHCR is invited to speak at Emory, gets protested, and it makes no waves at the AJC.

Wednesday, April 14, 2004

Hmmmm. Not only is Israel going to get to pull a Yassin on Arafat, it'll do it with American approval.

Arafat decided he wanted to send a message to the U.S. I'm guessing he was counting on his complicity not being discovered. Now he's just more work for the bunker busters. Ho hum.

Oh, and the Palestinians just got another hint that they've lost their cherished right of return.

In light of this, is anyone going to take the time to remember Carter's own disasterous Presidency.

In fact, it wouldn't to too much of a stretch to say that most of what GWB is dealing with is the legacy of Carter's mismanagement.

And that's the thing about Democrat ex-Presidents: they spend the rest of their miserable lives attempting to rewrite the history of their failed stupidities.

Advertising jingles for Mark Trigg and Associates:

"Mark Trigg and Associates,
 Our clients are all boobs."


"Mark Trigg and Associates,
 Our clients are all guilty."

It's beginning to look like there's a new legal specialization called "Defense of Stupid and/or Venal Public Officials."

Great weekend!

On Friday I got home from work at about 1830. Feeling a bit knackered, I was thinking of simply retiring. Then, quite by accident I can across this, playing at the Ferst Center as Georgia Tech. Well, Mrs. Livininamerica and I promptly hopped into the LivinInAmericaMobile, plunged into traffic, and arrived at the performance 30 minutes before the opening. $70 and two tickets later, we were happily ensconsed in row "A" (up front, for those of you in Rio Linda), and immersed ourselves in a one-man, fifty-voice, Simpsons take on MacBeth.

After the show we went over to a bar called "Kommune," in the same complex as Bacchanalia.

Saturday morning I got my brakes fixed at Dekalb Tire. I love this place. No bullshit, totally efficient, great service.

Saturday afternoon, Mrs Livininamerica and I went over to Brio in Buckhead. We chatted the afternoon away over salad, lasagna, and chardonnay.

Sunday morning we went for a walk over at Chastain Park. Everyone knows about the amphitheatre, but there's also a golf course, a horse park, a swimming pool, an arts center, and a walking trail. Towards the end of our walk we came upon a lost dog. We quickly found his home (thank God for tags) and, in the absence of his owners, left him with a neighbour. We left a little note and a message on their answering machine. They called back later in the day to say "thanks."

To reward ourselves for a good deed done we headed over to Fado in Buckhead for breakfast. Mrs Livininamerica had some sort of girly thing involving spinach. I had the full Irish breakfast. The rashers left something to be desired, but the black puddin' was all I hoped it could be.

On the way home, we stopped at Borders and I bought The Late Show and Cerebus. Barbarian aardvarks call to something deep inside me.

After showers and siestas (it was a *big* breakfast) we went to the Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park. Stopping first at the Park Tavern for reinforcement, we admired the Chryslers on display: the PT Cruiser Convertible and the 300 C. Car porn, pure and simple.

After a circuit of the park, and a couple of small artsy purchases, we headed over to the James Joyce Pub in Decatur for a couple of beers and some of Atlanta's best fish and chips.

I slept like a baby last night, sprang out of bed at 0430 to go to the gym and start paying for the weekend's excesses, and got to work bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and Starbucks in hand, at 0720.

By Thursday, however, I'm sure I'll feel a bit like this.

By then it'll almost be the weekend again. Woohoo!

UPDATE: I have Friday off: it's Good Friday.

Moral-equivalency alert!

This moron, among other things, "hailed the bloodless disarmament of Libya and spoke of how diplomacy had won the day." Diplomacy. Yeah, right. Ghaddafi himself said "I will do whatever the Americans want, because I saw what happened in Iraq, and I was afraid."

He compares GWB and OBL, saying they're "the twin strain of the same fanatic spore." This from a man who starts his interview with "'If a fanatic comes to kill me, I consider it my duty to try to kill him first, ... I am not interested in dialoguing with the fanatic.'"

Cranium. Rectum. Insert.

In my home county, DeKalb, the education system has 7000 teachers and 2500, non-teaching staff. Tooth to tail ratio of less than 3-to-1. And the average non-teacher is earning $59,200 per year.

Boy! Vernon Jones has been working reeeeeeal hard to buy votes to cover his ass after that Arabia Mountain fiasco.

For me, living outside Fulton County, and the City of Atlanta is a matter of morality. I don't want to pay taxes and thereby enable law enforcement officers to break the law.

Allahu Akbar!

Islamofascists threaten the UK. Looks like they learned from Spain.

I think that in coming days Americans will simply have to suck it up and say "Very well, alone."

It's like shooting French in a barrel.

I'm afraid leftist talk radio is not going to last.

That'a a pity. Howard Stern's case is the camel's nose under the tent. I guarantee you that if leftist talk radio isn't successful, a future leftist government of this country will find some grounds for censoring conservative talk radio.
