    9/12she said why do you believe in God

    i said i dont know.

    9/13 how to vote

    9/13 beastie boys pre-write

    9/13 biggest issue i have with the current administration is that they seem to want us to live the lives of the pussy ass bitches

    instead of setting the tone as the courageous american leaders that we are.

    the typical cycle of mundane human existence is generally (1) fight for what you want, (2) get it, (3) and then hold on to it as tightly and fearfully as you can.

    rodents follow the same patterns.

    enlightened human beings who chose to actually live their lives can shed their natural inclinations and say to themselves,

    “oh look how far i made it actually working for what i have… i dont need to live in a place of fear that some lesser creature can steal what i have and leave me with zero forever.”

    courageous people know that they can just yank back what was rightfully theirs.

    today i invite you to yank back your courage, america.

    9/24 20 questions we wish they would ask the president at the debates. here are some examples:

    6. How has your presidency compared to Clinton’s?

    7. NBC news has reported that before the Iraq war you passed on three opportunities to attack the terrorist camps of Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who was based in the areas of Iraq that were not controlled by Saddam. Why did you not attack these camps when you had the chance, considering that he is now responsible for hundreds of terrorist attacks against our forces in Iraq?

    8. “Mr. President, in July of 2003 you said if anyone wanted to attack our troops in Iraq, they should bring it on. In March of this year you appeared at a reporters’ dinner and ran a video in which you jokingly stumbled around your office looking for weapons of mass destruction. Can you explain this behavior to the families who have lost loved ones in Iraq?”

    9. Mr. Bush, what is 6 times 9?

    9/24 something in here is true

    9/25 should a man express his emotions on the web? anywhere online for that matter. or even on a personal journal of mysterious things?

    perhaps we should experiment.

    9/26 much love to the LA blogosphere

    9/27 fine, the instapundit claims to be a moderate. great. if anyone can show me one day in the Instapundit’s illustrious career, where he spent one day spending more time criticising the Bush administration more than attacking the left

    or if one can show me one time when the Instapundit criticized President Bush three posts in a row, then i will quit calling bullshit on his “but im a moderate” claims.
