Musings: What's in a name?

If you have been paying attention, you know that there is a British schoolmarm in Sudan who is under arrest for breaking Muslim law. Gillian Gibbons probably wishes that she had named a Teddy Bear Charlies instead of Mohammad. She allowed one of her students, whose name is Mohammad, to name it and she was looking at 40 lashes and a year in prison. Or, as some militants want to do, execute her.

Well, sometimes we say there ain't nothing in a name...and really there isn't. But in country that is so ignorant that they think the name Mohammad is sacred, a name can get you killed. (See Link

Well they didn't lash her but they gave her 15 days in the stir and deported her. Yeah, for Muslim justice. It seems there is no end to the extent of amazement that comes with the Muslim religion. Even an innocent act can get you killed. Personally, I like the compassionate Christian God better. At least he seems to have a sense of humor. Jeeezzzzzzzz!

Musings: Karl Rove creates history from whole cloth.

On the latest Charlie Rose show on PBS, former Bush advisor Karl Rove stated that Congress pushed the president to war with Iraq. He didn't hint it...he actually said it. (See the blog and see the tape with the link to the Charlie Rose site .)

This is the most aggressive act of deceitful reconstructionist history I have ever seen. And, he does it without remorse.

Here is another link that plays part of the interview with Rove. (

I guess that Rove and Bush don't know that the Internet is out there and folks can Google and find out all about how they were the ones pushing for the war, and how Bush kept pressuring congress for the power to be the sole person to judge whether or not we should invade Iraq for 9-11.

Musings: Back again and again...

Well, hell, I've been gone a while because I have been totally perturbed with everything to the point of doing nothing. Does that make sense? No? Tough shit...that's the only reason you get.

Things I'm thinking:

- So Bushie jr. is still alive and well and bumbling along. Whoever would have thought that one president could damage our standing in the world community so much. Who would have thought that a lame duck president would control congress by vetoing everything and blaming it on them. Ronald Ray-gun was the teflon president, but Bushie is the shit-don't-stick or stink president.

- Rudy or Romney...hmmm...which will be the heir to the throne. Hopefully, neither.

- Hill, Obama or Edwards. Even money on Hill or Obama.

- Sad prediction: Senate and house go overwhelming democratic in 2008. Republicans maintain the White House. Gawd, I hope I'm wrong.

- So for months we heard that if things could only get better in Iraq, we'd leave. Now things are better, and we can't leave because they might get worse. I hate to be an "I told you so," but I did! We are never leaving that god-forsaken country. We are there for the long haul. Korea will look like a short escapade compared to Iraq.

- Damn gas prices are through the roof. Takes a $50 to fill up. When does this filter into the economy? My best guess...about next year.

- Thanksgiving is gone. Everybody got sick but me. Now they are better and I'm getting sick. This is called poetic justice, I guess.

- Christmas is coming. Wow!

- I have been in a pissy mood ever since our female dalmatian died a couple of weeks ago. She was a great dog.

- Maybe I'll be happier the next time I blog...days or months from now.
