Don't say you can - say you will.

Strike One

Do you believe the USA shot down a wayward satellite in one amazingly accurate shot? I'm not so sure I do.

Why wait several years until just a month before it would supposedly enter the atmosphere on its own? Why do it in such a hurry when a space shuttle is in orbit? Why spend a huge expense when it would likely not hit a populated area anyway? Why not build a satellite with a self destruct?

Not only do I think it was a fake military show of strength, but a very dangerous one possibly capable of starting a new arms race.

It's Only a GAME!

Am I to understand there is a congressioinal hearing on steroid use in Baseball? What does baseball, or any sport for that matter, have to do with congress?

Our priorities are way out of line.

Is Everyone On Drugs?

Why can't they make dance music with words anymore? Even if they do someone remixes into mindless techno crap. I like to go to a dance club every once in a while - they used to be a lot of fun. Now it seems everyone is "somewhere else" right there on the dancefloor. And apparently the words to the songs are somewhere else too.

I don't get it.

Mind Control

Gas prices are only $2.95! We are so used to paying over $3.00 that you almost forget you were paying less than $1.50 only a short time ago.

Isn't it nice that they might be bringing some of the troops home soon? You almost forget that they sent a whole bunch of extra ones a while back so even though some might be coming back there will still be more there than there was before.

Isn't it wonderful the budget deficit might be reduced in a couple of years? You almost forget that it went up so fast that even if it is reduced it won't be back to pre-Bush levels for possibly decades.

The grocery store is having a fantastic sale! You almost forget that the regular price was much less than the sale price only a few months ago.

How wonderful we are liberating the people of Iraq and bringing Democracy to the region (if only it were true). You almost forget that the real reason was WMDs.

Do you see how this works?

Bite Your Vitamins

I'm just guessing they work better if they get broke up a bit. Otherwise they might pass right through without disolving. I seem to feel better since I started breaking mine up before swallowing.
