The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Seventeen Shiite pilgrims killed today in Iraq. I wonder what the Iraqi people think about our continued presence there. You know, much of the talk is centered on “cut and run” and what does the United States want. But what does Iraq want? Are they happy having us there, day in and day out? Would they be happy to see us go? Maybe if we weren’t there those seventeen pilgrims would be alive right now, and not dead.

And there was an article in the New York Times about how Iraqis are afraid to go to their mosques and pray because that is where much of the violence happens. Oh yes, it is a great situation in Iraq, brought to you by the policies of George War Bush, Duck! Cheney, “Shut the fuck up, Donny” Rumsfeld, Condo Rice, et al. Please Lord, save us from incompetent leaders.

How would you like to be out of the Army, home, safe, and then get called back for duty to Iraq? It's happening, folks. The conduct of this war is so absurd and often so unfair. Please get out the Democratic vote in November.

So now they’re adding bacteriophage viruses to lunch meats? Great. That's bound to be safe. I don’t eat that stuff anyway, but this just seems like one more reason why I don't want to eat it. I'll just remain vegan, thank you, although at some point they’ll probably figure out a way to screw up the vegetables (if they haven’t already.)

So what are we doing now, exporting obesity? There was the story the other day that there are more obese people in the world than hungry people. Now we learn that the British are becoming fatter. Great. Let’s see how all this drives up health care costs for those of us who take our eating habits seriously and who are not obese.

In medical news, this is one of the most unusual stories I have ever heard: you start out with two embryos, twins; then one of the twins absorbs the other twin, and you end up with one person being born who has two sets of DNA. This phenomenon is called a chimera, and I’ve heard of it before, but not in relation to human beings. Here is an ABC News video of the story also.

Coffee House Studio has some interesting quotations from the Bushes.

Check out Reconstitution for political perspective.

Don’t forget to check Stars over Washington for the latest in political astrological analysis.
