Happy 2005

Taking it easy today since this is my last weekend of 'freedom' - school starts again on January 3rd.

Part of this will be reading some of the books that I got for Christmas, especially a biography of George Washington.

Although I seriously doubt I'll finish that one by the beginning of the week, I also got the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant from my mother-in-law; this one also looks like a good read.

New Year's Eve 2004

Just a quick post to say Happy New Year to everyone that happens to be surfing the Net instead of partying like a rock star.

We're having some people over tonight; loud music, booze - the usual.

And to those that might be wondering, I will not be wringing my hands over the tsunami disaster as some would compel me to do.

It's a horrible event, lots of people died, but my curtailing my ingestion of alcohol tonight will not alleviate the suffering of those survivors..

Call me an asshole, but to me there are two distinct options when reacting to this:

  1. Worry and get an ulcer from caring too much about every little thing on the planet, or
  2. Get on with life and maybe try to cherish it just a little more considering that my apartment could be wiped out by a tidal wave here in La Jolla.
Hope everyone's New Year's Eve is a fun one. And for Allah's sake: DON'T DRINK & DRIVE!!

See you all in 2005.....unless a tsunami takes out Southern California.

Saddam's New Lawyer

Why am I not surprised?

Ramsey Clarke to defend Saddam

Ramsey ClarkFormer US attorney-general Ramsey Clark is to join Saddam Hussein's defence team, a spokesman for the ousted Iraqi president's lawyers says.

Ziad Khasawna said on Wednesday that Clark, who held the office of attorney-general under US president Lyndon Johnson, had "honoured and inspired" the legal team by agreeing to help defend Saddam.

The former top US justice official, who arrived on Tuesday in Jordan where the defence team is based, has become known as a left-wing lawyer and firm critic of US foreign policy since leaving office.

He visited Saddam in Baghdad in February 2003 just before the US-lead invasion and has also been involved with the defence of former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, on trial for war crimes at a UN court in The Hague.

Clark said in the Jordanian capital Amman that his principle concern was protecting the former president's rights, who only saw a lawyer for the first time this month - a year after his capture.

"In international law, anyone accused of crime has the right to be tried by a confident, independent and impartial court, and there can be no fair trail without those qualities," he said.

I'm so glad to hear that Clark is looking out for the rights of people. Too bad he wasn't around to defend the rights of all those people found in the mass graves.

Yup, this sure gives a lot more credence to those barking moonbats over at International ANSWER.....

Ohio Recount Finished - Bush Still Won

For those that thought there might be a slim chance that the Ohio recount would yield a different result for the November 2, 2004 election - get used to disappointment.

'Say What?' Redux

They say that when people come together during a crisis, it brings out the best of most people. Apparently, this isn't applicable to MSM reporters in Israel.

By way of FrontPage Magazine and HonestReporting.com:

Poor House?

He's been absent for a while but although he's back, Allah is in the House is regressing back to Blogspot.

I've heard of people moving away from Blogspot, but going back to it?

I, Michelle's Robot

Michelle Malkin is giddy about having a slave robot that vacuums the floor:

Hooray! Roomba does the floor-cleaning no one else wants to do. And it won't sue you for back-pay when it breaks...
What next Michelle - dancing around the house while the blender mixes your smoothies??
