The Required Reading 2002 will not be up until tomorrow, as my cable modem was down for most of the night and I alternated between having a hissy fit and sleeping.
It's back to work today, after an almost two week vacation, and back to school for the kids. Posting will resume its normal pace, whatever that was.
So, being it's Monday morning and I anticipate it to be a very hectic one, rather than tax my brain trying to come up with a good rant or take apart some news article, I'll delve into the mail bag until I can get to my office and avoid the backlog of work I have by blogging.
This one came to me last night:
At least those "human shields" are going out there and doing something unlike you and your idiot friends who only sit home and bitch about Dubya not killing any Iraqis yet, because you are so gungho on going to war and killkillkill the innocents and killkillkill the bad guys. get off your asses and do something like us "liberals" are. At least we know how to put our money where our mouth is by standing up and shouting you down. As for ELF and other groups like it, at least they take action. They are here for your benefit, you stupid limbaugh loving whore.
Dear M. Graham,
a) What the "human shields" are doing is pure idiocy. Putting yourself in the line of fire by protecting the very people who wish to see us dead is neither heroic nor very smart.
b) The only Iraqi I would like to see dead is Saddam. And perhaps Uday. You see something wrong with killing the bad guys? After all, Saddam and his henchmen have systematically tortured and killed thousands upon thousands of their people. But you don't see that, do you? Saddam is somehow a victim to you.
c) How is "shouting me down" with your cardboard signs and protest songs any different than my writing about it? That's not putting your money where your mouth is. Come up with a solution on how to get Iraq to disarm peacefully and I'll make you my hero. If you can't do that, and can't offer any other solution to ridding the world of a tyranical man who his hell bent on destroying anyone who doesn't see the world the way he does, then shut the hell up, sit down and stop your bitching.
d) Setting cars on fire is not action. It's illegal and it's destructive. Have they ever thought about the pollution they release into the air every time they set a fire? ELF, ALF and PETA are not here for my benefit. They are a thorn in my side.
e) Ah, the name calling. I knew you would get to that sooner or later. Limbaugh loving whore? How dare you!
I have no love for Limbaugh. Take that back, please.
That's it for now. I have to try to get back into this routine thing again.
