Obamies a Commie? Will he search my butt on DC metro?

Much as I hate 9-5 work and would love to get a $500 a week check for sitting on my butt, I worry under Commie-ism they might actually make me work 8 am to 8 pm and only pay me $500 a month! And what if I write that high consciousness radical decentralist best seller - commies won't let it be published, not to mention let me make millions off it. So dang, this video sure sounds like Obama wants to take the money I don't have and redistribute it to people who hate to work just as much as I do! (Or at least he did before he got in the Senate and realized commie-ism is just so anti-globalization protest passe.)

Of course, unless Obama declares martial law he won't get too far since congress knows too much socialism, especially if coupled with more wars and violent enforcement of gun laws, ala Waco, could lead to another 1994 - Republicans taking over congress in 2010.

In any case, I'd rather fight a commie-izing president than just live in terror of one bent on nuclear destruction to avenge his six years in prison camp or whatever McCain's psychopathology is.

Speaking of martial law, is Obama really going to continue with this new policy of random searches of riders on the DC metro. Especially, I bet, ones who flaunt their keffiyahs like I do?

I might freak out and start speaking really crappy German: "Vas is das? You vant to touch my body? Sieg hiel, mine fuhrer, your vishin is my commandin!" Or I can just count and see how many 8 or 10 or 14 people they are "randomly searching" and make sure I'm not in that count! And let them bite their tongues as I flounce by in my Kafiyyeh.

...As a woman I have no country...

"Therefore if you insist upon fighting to protect me or `our' country let it be understood, soberly and rationally between us, that you are fighting to gratify a sex instinct which I cannot share; to procure benefits which I have not shared and probably will not share; but not to gratify my instincts, or to protect either myself or my country. For, The outsider will say, in fact, as a woman, I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is The whole world." Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas, 1938.

Amazing Hubble Stellar Photos

Living in North East DC among a lot of homes and street lights, even on the clearest nights I can see only a dozen stars in the sky.

Last week I could see that the electricity went out in about a 3/4 mile radius of my house on a hill - and low and behold even on a hazy night I could see at least 50 stars! Nostalgia to staying at a house on a lake when I was a kid and we could see hundreds - or my one bus trip through rural Texas where the stars really were the brightest I'd ever seen in my life!

So it was exciting today to finally discover there are web pages filled with these amazing photos of stars and galaxies all over the universe. This site is particularly cool because it categorized the photos by type and you can click for a larger one.

This is a link to Wikipedia's catalog.
Below are some of my favorites.

This is why we evolved ourselves, after all, to glory in that which we created on the way to becoming sentient and inventing the Internet!!

Bush and McCain Agree - "I want to be dictator!" See videos.

This week John McCain made his own "I want to be dictator" statement as a book end to George Bush's of several years ago. Enjoy them both below - and try not to have too many nightmares since McCain probably won't be elected, even if there is some manufactured terrorist incident or Israel attacks Iran. The American people are on to you guys! (Hopefully not famous last words.)

Happy Birthday Gandhi-ji!!

Geez, it was only 139 years ago little Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was born in Porbander, India. And now every October 2 Indians - and the world - celebrate his October 2 birthday - known in India as Gandhi Jayanti. Washington DC even has it's own Gandhi statue near Dupont Circle.

See my site
What Would Gandhi Do? Search YouTube for lots of Gandhi Video. Below is one of my favorite scenes from "the movie"!
