Okay, I've had it.

Honestly, I am the most non-political person you could ever find. Truly. So much so, that most would consider me irresponsible in that area. In my defense, I'll say it was the 20+ years I spent as a Jehovah's Witness that made me so. (They aren't allowed to even have political opinions - I kid you not - and at this point, I'm so far out of the loop of political machinations that I'll never catch up.)

Nevertheless, if I see one more press release that illustrates Bush's blatant attempts to justify an invasion of Iran, I'm going to start writing letters to the Canadians, the Swedes, the Danes, the Australians--even the Brits who are tired of it all, too, and BEG them to invade the U.S. to liberate us from our mad dictator. Would some lovers of liberty please come save us?

Ah, Kate. I am a rabidly political person. However I have refrained from being political on my blog.

So, instead I have made a habit of going onto other peoples blogs, those who are political, and waxing extreme left. I know how you feel. It's madness. Frustrating.

I remember there's this one blogger, Bee..who used to leave comments on my blog. I used to leave comments on her blog. Then she made a posting about how upset she was about someone who she enjoyed made some comments on a blog that upset her. It took me a while before I figured out that she was talking about me, responding to one of my political rants, probably after she followed a link to http://michaelfountain.blogspot.com/

anyway, the point is that I have avoided politics for the most part because I wanted to focus on other things. It's hard though, isn't it? I have considered starting a third blog and doing major postings there. I just don't have the time though.

By the way, besides michael's blog, there is another blog I go to for a political fix, and that's rawstory.com. I find raw story's stuff usually appears in mainstream media about a few days later.

I am genuinely non-political, but I've seen at least three things in the news today that are clearly set-ups for things to come, and it's been happening for a while. My post was part tongue-in-cheek, part genuine concern.

I never comment on politics, even when I'm with people deep in the discussion - mainly because I know so little about it. But there are some things that just seem so clear. You don't have to have a PhD in astronomy to see a full moon on a clear night.

Oh, well. I'm sure there are people who will disagree with me - my brother for instance. He calls himself a "Radical right-leg Republican" (he lost his left leg in a motorcycle accident.)

Ok, so now I'm done. I promise I won't bring up politics or religion again. :)

Sorry, Stewart - that last bit was for you. Thanks for the links and the story too. We can't please everyone. :)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: We've got a Mad King George of our own ...

Bush's presidency is a good illustration of the point that "time is relative." He may have been in office for only some six years in chronological time, but it's been at least twelve in relative time. And unfortunately he still has some 8 years to go, relatively speaking.

Funny, Spy.

Ugh, Charles. That's depressing! :)
