Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.

-Thomas Jefferson

I wanted to keep the political topic floating for a bit longer and write up an actual objective rundown of what I know about Bush and Kerry. I hit one problem when I wrote the first point I was going to see-saw them on: I've never heard Kerry give an answer to a question that wasn't along the lines of "George Bush fucked everything up and I'm not going to do that." So let me give what apparently will be a very biased look at the two front-runners:

  • The Supposed War on Terror:
    • Bush: Kill all terrorists and turn their countries into Democracies.
    • Kerry: Terrorists are bad but I don't like George Bush and his war.
I agree with: Bush
  • Iraq:
    • Bush: We will stay there until they have their own secure, sovereign government.
    • Kerry: We shouldn't be there, but I'm not saying I would pull the troops out. I mean this is blood for oil but, like freedom is cool too. George Bush fucked this all up. I would do something about it, but I can't tell you what that is.
I agree with: Bush
  • Health Care:
    • Bush: The reason we have the technology to rip a motherfucker's heart out a put a robot heart in there is because we pay top dollar for our top dollar health care, and I plan to keep it that way.
    • Kerry: Privatized health care is the reason 15% of American have no health coverage. I'm not going to say I'm going to socialize health care, because just saying the word socialized would get my ass kicked out of the election in a heartbeat. I'll just say what we have sucks the big one and not tell you what I would do about it.
I agree with: Bush
  • The Economy:
    • Bush: The economy sucks. We were on a downward trend since March of '99 (before I was president) that turned into a recession when a bunch of shit sticks flew airplanes into two of the most economically important buildings on the face of the earth. It's has been getting better in the past few months though.
    • Kerry: Clinton created a good economy by doing stuff I don't know so I'll just pretend it's common knowledge and not explain it. Clinton was a democrat. I am a democrat. Of course, logic states I will create a good economy too.
I agree with: Bush
  • Civil Rights:
    • Bush: I respect your civil rights. Now bend over while I let John Ashcroft roll up the Patriot Act and sodomize you with it.
    • Kerry: I don't really know, but I couldn't possibly fuck it up more than George Bush did.
I agree with: Kerry

And there's how I see it. I'm not saying that I'm 100% accurate, but after watching a lot of news and reading quite a fair bit on the internet, this is how I perceive the candidate's paraphrased opinions are stated. Like I said, I wanted to make an objective view of it all, but Kerry's position on things is so nebulous that I just ended up making fun of it instead of stating it. Oh well, my site, I can do that.

Once again back is the incredible! That's an old school public enemy reference for those of you not "keeping it real in the hizzy" or something.

Well, your estemed host has found a bounty of good fortune as of late. Due to the sudden and unamiacable depature of a "higher up" at work, me and my partner in rhyme have found more work is afoot, but with monetary rewards aplenty! Well, at least for me. I have no idea if he's gotten his just desserts for this, but he ain't telling and I ain't asking. As I have yet to receive my new cornicopia of worldly goodness (aka my next paycheck) I have no idea how this will effect the day to day operation of my shallow need for more "shit", but if you take what I was getting before and compare it to this, I'm quite sure it will be firmly situated in the "more" category.

Here, have a headache on me: hometown.aol.com/xogangstakissez

In more somber news, we seem to have a war on our hands. In all likelyhood, it will be swift and anticlimactic, with a lot of cool videos of smart bombs being smart and dumb despots being dumb. I myself have a wide range of opinions on the whole ordeal, mainly comprising of not wanting a war, and not wanting a mustacioed fucktard lobbing around the kind of shit that would make baby jesus die. So, I guess my perfect senario would be him accidentally tripping and falling in alligator pit that is on fire. Slim chance that could happen, but a man can dream, oh, a man can dream.

Well, that's about all for this installment, hugs and gangsta kissez!

This magical Thursday night instead of hanging out with weird ass college kids who sit around and get drunk and raise a ruckus with drums their mommies and daddies bought them, I had dinner and chit chat at the house of g. One of the things we talked about was the Chinese and the Japanese and what their presence on this earth means to us. When I got home I was still thinking about it and I reached a conclusion. "There hasn't been an update in a week, and I can do something about that."

And I can. So I will.

I found this a few weeks ago and meant to mention then. But now seems like a better time. It's a quiz to see if you can tell Asians apart. I don't remember how I did, but I'll admit that it was pretty much a guessing game for me and my results certainly reflected that. To give everyone a little nudge in the right direction, I took the liberty of heading over to google's image search (with the family friendly filters turned on, of course) and entered "chinese person" and "japanese person". After going through lots of pictures of dragons and coins and assemblies of the People's championship kumquat eating league and pictures of American kids hanging out in the east and protestors and cartoon characters, I found these two smiling examples of our neighbors across the Pacific.

So get to taking that quiz and remember... rossa ruck.

Now that you've done that bit of bidness, you can learn how to dress like our favorite defenders of the inscrutable Asian way. That's right, NINJAS!

In completely unrelated news, if any of you enjoy brunching shuttlecocks then you might be glad to know that the main writer there has a blog now. Lore seems to be mostly steering clear of common blog sins, but he also seems to enjoy pulling some Penny Arcade style shit insofar as he's offering up these rather odd little explanations about some of the older jokes on the site. Oh well, what can you do?

You can go to bed, that's what.

While hearing miscelaneous people speak about racism and other subjects that are equally endearing to people's hearts, I started noticing a few things. As a multiracial country and society in America, we have but one goal in this arena, full racial integration accross the board. By that I mean people of any race working, living, socializing together without even a shred of bias. An impossible Utopia? Maybe. Should we strive for it anyway? Certainly. Now, you think you would be hard pressed to find someone deadset against this (beside outwardly racist people like the KKK and Nation of Islam), but I protest, you're just not looking the the right place.

As said before, we live in a multiracial society, however, we in no way live in a multicultural society. We have a culture: The American Culture. We use cellphone, we equate the value of our automobile with social status, we eat fast food, we engage in relatively safe and consential sex regularly, we wear blue jeans and T-shirts, suits and jackets, boxers and briefs. No amount of bihndi dots or kente cloth is going to fool anyone when you're wearing them in the line at Burger King.

Now, this is in no way a request for full out banning of the expression of another culture, that would be barbaric (think Islam). I'm just interested in why someone who is fully american-onized would have interest pretending to be Hindu (Madonna), or wearing African tribal-esque garb (Erica Badu et al). Are they ashamed of being American? If so, they have to realize something much more problematic: they are ashamed of who they are.

I just read this and really wanted to put it in the quote machine, but figured that might get annoying. So without further ado...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

-Thomas Muthafuckin Jefferson
