You guys rock!

Close to $900 was raised for Saira's show last night. Thank you to everyone who helped out, you really supported something worthwhile.

I'm going to try something different today; quotes.

From Manifesto for world dictatorship:

Now we know. The Americans have spelt it out in black and white. There will be a world government, but not one even pretending to be comprised of representatives of its nation states through the United Nations. The United States will rule, and not according to painstakingly developed international law and norms, but by what is in its interests.

In declaring itself dictator of the world, The United States will have no accountability to non-United States citizens. It will bomb who it likes when it likes, and change regimes when and as it sees fit, it will not be subject to investigations for war crimes, for torture, or for breaches of fundamental human rights.

OK, forget quotes. This article misses one important point in my opinion. It's the not the US's actions, and the US people certainly have not made these decisions (it's therefore doubly unfortunate that it is they that will trade their blood for cash in the pockets of their rulers). The US was long since defeated in a silent war between liberty and commerce. Commerce won. As such, the defense lobby, the oil lobby, the Israeli lobby, and so on keep setting the rules, no matter what is right for the people.

Hell, did you know that even though you can be prosecuted a la John Walker Lindh and/or lose your citizenship for contributing to a foreign army, that there is of course one major exception: Israel. Even though the Israeli army is guilty of a significant atrocities and warn crimes and has a clear racist agenda, not only is it allowed to support them, contributions to the Israeli Defense Fund are a tax-deductible contribution under US tax laws. (Thanks to for this tidbit.)

For those that don't know, the IDF is a Zionist organization that essentially fights for the exile and/or extermination of the Palestinian and Christian people from the region. You can mask it in all the religious pride you want but the fact is that it is a fundamentally immoral group by any objective standards.

Finally, watch out for oil prices… Sheikh Yamani, OPEC head in the 70's, has said that crude oil could actually triple — to $100 a barrel — if war plans continue. I can't say I'm convinced it would go that high, but hey, if it does, and you have an interest in Texas Tea like most of the politicians pushing for this war, you're going to become very very wealthy.

PS. The first link was a joke. I am not doing DMT today!

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