Land of Doom

Blogito ergo sum: I blog, therefore I am.

And there goes the weekend
Thank you for the congratulations. Hung out with some old friends on saturday. Today I picked my brother up from summer camp. And with all the talk recently about the ground Zero Mosque I felt that this picture sums it up.

And he's back
yay home
Not from outer space or anything as dramatic.

In fact I have been in Law School and have now graduated.

I studied for and took the bar exam. (I don't find out until mid November if I have passed or not.)

I have started doing some freelance political work for some local and some non-local campaigns.

My car died.

Fighting Zombies
Scientists did some thinking on a possible zombie attack. BBC reports

One of the author's name is Professor Robert Smith?. (Yes the ? is part of his name.) He and his fellow authors find that humanity's only hope is to "hit them [the undead] hard and hit them often".

And all.

A growing list.

First does anyone here you a web-based desktop? And if so which one?

Second: During the Gaza military conflict in January, Hamas apologists claimed that the whole thing was Israel's fault for limiting the amount of goods that can cross into and out of Gaza, necessitating Hamas's "resistance. Yet Hamas and other Palestinian factions have consistently attacked the crossings that are open, knowing that this will inevitably lead to further restrictions.

Sp it's worth remembering an attack last April on the Israeli terminal that supplies gas to Gaza. Two Israeli civilians were murdered. Do you think Hamas condemned the attack for threatening Gaza's gas supply and immiserated the civilian population? Not exactly:

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, praised the attack as heroic and courageous. He said Hamas was not responsible but affirmed his group's support for "resistance."(http://volokh.com/posts/1238564187.shtml)

Third. What the hell is up with Amazon and its decision to remove all GLBTI literature from its search functions? The META writer community is keeping a list of books that have been removed. http://community.livejournal.com/meta_writer/11992.html. I have to say I'm very offended. If I used Amazon I'd stop. But I don't so I'll continue not using it.

Fourth coupons search page will save you some money.

I regret that we did not include in White House ethics lectures a warning “do not lie under oath”
Studying and working all day makes me a dull boy.

The Subject is from Richard Painter former Counsel to President George W. Bush.

When you own a bakery you never run out of candle holders.

One of the good things about living in America is we don't get stupid disputes like what is happening in Malaysia. Malaysian religious authorities have threatened to sue the country's top legal body for using the word "Allah" on its website, in another row over the issue to hit the multi-ethnic country.

I swear I'll do a real update soon.

New Moon found!
Saturn just got a new moon.


It's a dog eat dog world not a doggie dog world.
Doodling is good for you.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending strong signals that President Obama - who as a candidate said states should be allowed to make their own rules on medical marijuana - will end raids on pot dispensaries in California.

This added to the fact that New Jersey recently passed its medical marijuana bill in the senate, hopefully signals a real shift to end the Drug war.

I look forward to Colbert v Steele freestyle rap battle.

Hi-caliber is the republican rapper. I wonder if Colbert will get him to battle in a freestyle rap.

At 40-41% support, legalizing marijuana is more popular than all of the following:

In short, legalizing marijuana is more popular than the Republican Party, most leading Republicans, and virtually the entire Republican platform.
