Normally I do this in the morning, but I think I'll do a latenight news update.

On a domestic front, Bush said last week, “We're an open society, but we're at war — Foreign terrorists and agents must never again be allowed to use our freedoms against us” (and thus we must remove these freedoms) as he defended his clampdown on libraries (public libraries are being ordered to remove “sensitive” materials from their shelves), websites, and press releases. It's shockingly clear that Bush's fascist tribunals (which are of highly questionable legal validity) are more of a opportunistic power grab than any attack on terror.

People tell me I'm just imagining these things… but right now we've got the US Secret Service paying visits to college students who are believed to be “anti-American” for a anti-Bush posters… People seem to forget so quickly that two months ago pretty much everyone publicly affirmed what an idiot they thought Bush was. Remember ““? After the bombing, he was forced to remove it… (It's back now, along with guestbook comments like “what a hucking liberal bastard are you”.)

Good night rights. Good night privacy. Good night Kama Ado.

Oh, and don't forget — the terror alert just got extended again! Not a surprise, considering the US just OK'd Israel's “war on terror” (also known on its war on Islam). Even though the Palestinians begged the US to intervene… I don't see how the US doesn't see that this type of action will radicalize Muslims all over the world. And then you radicalize the Nation of Islam. And then you radicalize all blacks. And so on. And so on. It's a foolish and snowballing course of action.

One of the things I've found most interesting in all of this is the stories coming from the reporters that have been freed from the Taliban prisons — they have universally spoken highly of the Taliban.

PS. Corporate Mofo are wusses. They just described nipple piercing as the most subversive and outrageous thing they could imagine… Ah, to live in a sheltered world…

PPS. I doubt the site will last long before tripod yanks it, but some people might like this for tattoo source material.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
