The U.S. gives North Korea the Internation Sign of Friendship:

U.S. Refuses One-On-One North Korea Talks

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration said Friday that it wasn't interested in one-on-one talks with North Korea about its nuclear programs outside the six-party negotiations involving the communist nation's neighbors.

"It's not an issue between North Korea and the United States. It's a regional issue," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. "And it's an issue that impacts all of its neighbors."

North Korea has plenty of opportunity to talk to the United States within six-party talks, McClellan said.

You got nukes?? So do we.....lots of them. Your call.....

Operation THANK YOU

San Diego Protest Warrior was out yesterday showing the Marines and Sailors at MCAS Miramar how appreciative we are of their sacrifices.

We call it Operation THANK YOU and our message is clear: thanks for protecting America - you are our heroes!

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend as I had a class that afternoon, not to mention that dialysis has been getting a little....harder lately.

Smash and Da Goddess have the after action report on this operation.

Gee - didn't see this one coming:

North Korea Confirms It Has Nuclear Weapons

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea defiantly told the world Thursday it does have nuclear weapons and that it's not interested in restarting disarmament talks anytime soon.

The communist nation argued it needs protection against what it considers an increasingly hostile United States.

Pyongyang's pronouncement was the first time it publicly confirmed what other nations suspected, but its claim could nevertheless not be independently verified.

It's pathetic that North Korea can be proudly admitting it's got a nuclear device but it can't feed its own people.

Okay, let the shrill girlie-man screams of Bush is to BLAME!!! from the Barking Moonbat Brigade™ begin....and let us not forget who bought the DPRK's song-and-dance about how they'd stop working on nukes back in the 90s....

Rate Your UCSD Professor

I found a website that's maintained by students here at UCSD that rates the professors.

Here is what some have to say about one of my professors:

Overall: 2
Professor: 2
Difficulty: 9
Hours/week: 3

Alright, this is for those who are doomed to take ECE 103 with Luo next year('04-'05). Unless he's going to chance how he teaches and what he puts on the exams, what I say is very true. First of all, lectures don't have at all, trust me on this, I normally never miss any lectures. Homework is sort of helpful. For the first midterm, some problems were based on the homework. But the final is the one that's tricky. And if you don't write down the correct graphs or equations on your cheat-sheet, then you're screwed. Awfully many people get C's in this class. So if you're the type that never goes to lectures and study at home, take it. The "rather simple" material turned out to be rather pain-in-the-ass. The only things that kept me going were his thick-ass glasses are funny and his thick-ass accent.

And another choice entry:
Overall: 3
Professor: 1
Difficulty: 10
Hours/week: 6

Go to class only if you want to be really really confused. What a dickface.

And they're right about the lectures: confusing to say the least - even the eggheads sit in the back and read the newspaper.

And the homework is always fun. My friend and I sit and will preface each question we ask each other about the homework with the phrase What the fuck....(and she hardly cusses!) - it's a sad state of affairs when even the book blows. I guess it's true when they say that which does not kill you makes you stronger but damn....

Local Monbats Awaken, Stir

It would seem like the Barking Moonbat Brigade™ detachment at my old college is awakening from its coma.

Indignation Minus the Real Reason


The New York Times reports today that the Bush Administration wants to raise veterans' co-payments for prescription drugs to $15 from a ridiculously low $7 and impose an annual enrollment fee of $250. Does anyone doubt that Democrats are going to talk incessantly about these "cuts"? But here's one thing I bet they won't mention: the Bush proposal is targeted at middle- and upper-income veterans whose disabilities aren't service-related. And here's another: Bush is asking for a total of $71 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs in the next fiscal year, up nearly 50 percent (from $48 billion) when he took office.

I heard about this on the radio in the last few days (can't remember exactly when or what show it was), but my first thought was Oh crap - here's more ammo for those Bush is screwing the vets!!! arguments.....

The specifics of this proposed 'cut' are the same as to why I shell out money for private insurance instead of relying on the VA to help me out: there are criteria for the amount of 'free' care a vet can receive, i.e., if you make decent money, you'll be asked to help out with your care.

Believe me, I'd love nothing more than to get the VA to kick down some help, especially since I'm spending $30 three times a week for dialysis. But I don't - partially since there's IMHO too much hassle/paperwork involved to get the VA to kick down some assistance, but mostly because there are veterans that are more FUBARed than I am that require the VA's undivided attention.

Anyway....watch the headlines and the anti-Bush cabal's talking points for this nugget of indignation and also take notice that this caviot of why there are 'cuts' is specifically overlooked.

Halle Berry is Cool

Rented Catwoman with Halle Berry on DVD the other night.

It was actually a decent movie - not just another re-make flash-in-the-pan. Halle Berry puts an excellent face on this incarnation of the 'Catwoman' - well worth the bucks to rent it. It's especially good when Halle Berry/Catwoman takes the controls of an Apache chopper in the middle of the movie.....oops - just watch it.
