Goodbye cruel world

FYI, I'll be away until after labor day. I hear there's a big green guy out in the desert that needs a burnin and I'm going to do my part, whatever that turns out to be. On the off chance you are in the vicinity, I'll be hanging out in or around a large, bullet-riddled metal poppy. Should be some photos, perhaps a little video, on my return. Who knows? Maybe even a campfire story.

EULA-Gee for democrats

The New York Times reports that the Democrats are at totally clueless bunch of losers who pass whatever constitution trashing laws that the Bush administration tells them to pass without even bothering to read the fine print:

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 — Broad new surveillance powers approved by Congress this month could allow the Bush administration to conduct spy operations that go well beyond wiretapping to include — without court approval — certain types of physical searches on American soil and the collection of Americans’ business records...

...lawmakers, in a frenetic, end-of-session scramble, passed legislation they may not have fully understood and may have given the administration more surveillance powers than it sought.

Of course it’s not news that the Democrats are pathetically weak and easily fooled, if not outright collaborators playing the same role the Washington Generals play for the Harlem Globetrotters.

No, what’s interesting in this is the modernization their craven ineptitude. The Democrats have entered the 21st century! They are no longer ink stained wretches wielding rubber stamps. Now they simply click the OK button on the computer screen to do what the Republicans tell them, just like clicking Yes to the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) when installing software. Who the fuck has time to read that shit? Not the Democrats. And so what if they did? They'd click the fucking button anyway.
