Today I have to go to the big city of Belleville (oooh, 60,000 people) to renew my registration on a couple vehicles — I have to admit there's a part of me that is hoping they refuse to accept my insurance information (it's just the number written down, not an official slip) and I am forced to drive to Toronto to get it (where I will stuff myself with good food and revel in the stench of Chinatown).

Well, I'm off shortly to do that, and then it's to work on the scrapbook.

Ron. Paul, the 14th district representative from Texas (and a renegade Republican) outlines his convincing case that a $200 billion war will have devastating effects on the US economy. Of course, the Pentagon wants even more money, now to set up guerrilla forces in Iraq. Do you know why? Because the “real” rebel forces in Iraq want nothing to do with the Americans, so they now have to find a bunch of jokers that couldn't make the cut as real guerrillas and try and turn them into US puppet guerrillas. Hmmm… I think we've seen how that plan of attack works already, haven't we?

Of course the Russians aren't thrilled that the Americans are trying to take over the world's second largest oil reserve (I like how these articles leave out that Canada has more oil in the tar sands than all of the Middle East, that's good, let's keep flying under the radar), but then at the same time, Bush has told him that he might get a piece of that pie if he backs the attack — plus the US will support his own attacks on Chechnya and Georgia, so he's not sure what to do.

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