That Wasn't My Baby!

In the wake of the bombing attempts in England and Scotland, something unsurprising has happened. Across the Middle East, people are rising up to say, "The Israelis did it! Or perhaps the CIA!" This isn't much of a surprise. I remember in New York, whenever someone's teenage son would knock over a liquor store, the screaming parent would always appear on the evening news declaring that her son would never do such a thing, and that it must have been the cops who framed her son. Or the Israelis.

It's hard to come to terms with the possibility that your relatives (or co-religionists) have committed heinous crimes. I suppose it's worse when they claim that they did it because God told them to. The truth hurts. But if there's ever going to be progress in the Middle East, Muslims have to come to terms with the idea that some religiously committed Muslims think it's OK to blow stuff (and people) up. Alas, the CIA isn't to blame for everything.

I guess this site is moribund but "I did want to say goodbye. I have finally regained internet access and could post if anyone cared enough to send me the posting site info.

And thanks for all the memories.

I didn't hear about those bombings until way after the event, and I only discovered the day before yesterday that Scotsman - breathes like a fish when he gives a speech - Gordon Brown, or "El Gordo", is the Prime Minister of Used-to-be-Great Britain.

My eager grasp on a reclusive lifestyle has really reached a peak, and it has to be a record breaking peak, because I've joined the ranks of the universal dullards who buy shows like Deadwood, and 24 in the form of overpriced DvD box sets, and who watch them all in one sitting. The only sustenance I require takes the form of cigarettes, but I think I'm gonna invest in some large bottles of Tropicana, and a warehouse-worth of microwaveable meals. I can then piss in the empty bottles and use the trays to the meals as miniature stuse containers, all without having to get out of my reclining bad boy - lazy boy.

I now live above a restaurant, and if it gets blown up at some point by Johnny Q Nobody from Bristol, England, and Jimmy Q Depressed from Pylfynnuytuirerdvj, Wales... I hope it blows my legs off or something, that way I can legitimately piss and shit into varying bags and containers, without people thinking less of me.

It occurs to me that there is alot of talk about nations reaching out to moderate Muslims, but where is the discussion about these moderates reaching out to the extreamists? If they feel so bad about their bretheren shaming them and their faith, why don't they do something?

Well, something that would reach headlines, anyway.

The biggest problem, I think, is that the Muslims half a world away still might feel some guilt for the deeds others who profess their faith are committing. Similarily, I know hostility is brought against them for actions they themselves didn't commit. It's just as proposterous to treat every Muslim as a terrorits as labeling every German a Nazi, every white American a slaveholder, every Catholic a crusader or inquisitor.

In fact, I couldn't help but feel it may have been some residual guilt over slavery that got our dear Leader some votes. Every editorial page I read for two weeks bore joyous proclamations that at last, America had atoned for her past sins.

If America sought to go about atoning for her ever crime, I figure she should at least go about it in chronological order. Where's our Native American president?
