Todays "What The Fuck?!?" Moment.
By an unlucky chance I wandered into Steve DenBeste's place
a couple of minutes ago and was immediately struck in the face by this jagged piece of stupidity:
One of [the DVD's] was "The Battle of Britain", one of the better war movies ever made. It was released in 1969, which was far enough from the war so that they didn't feel the need to make all the German characters seem like evil, sadistic animals, but still early enough so that the film makers were not infected with post-modernist multiculturalist mindset and didn't need to try to portray Hitler and the other top Nazis semi-sympathetically. (Or to try to figure out some reason why it was actually America's fault.)
What the Fuck? That's all I can say.

The Draft Is Coming.
For those who haven't heard and ditto-monkeys who are too stupid to believe it, Congress has taken the initial step to bring back the Draft with House Bill H.R.163
and Senate Bill S.89
. The Selective Services System is gearing up for 2005, with an extra $28 million in it's 2004 budget to prepare (which I think actually doubles the agencies budget, but don't quote me on that.)
has some ideas for resistance
, which just amounts to ways of avoiding the draft. Nobody else has thought of my chosen path yet though: Refuse to serve and go to jail.
Think about it: It costs money to lock people up. Incarcerating 100,000 people would be an enormous drain on resources. The prison system in this country is already at the breaking point and the deficit is already in the stratosphere. They won't be able to cope, I'm tellin' ya.
Use the greatest weapon you have to resist -- your own body. It's so damn simple. Draft dodging will save your own ass, but it's not resistance because it doesn't hurt the machine. We have to strike at the machine!

The Word Is "Habitual."
Hammerdown points out that this administration even lies about biking accidents
At this point you have to seriously consider that maybe the genetic predisposition of politicians to fib has hit a whole new level with these people. Evolution in action. Survival of the most duplicitous.

Haha. The Don has solved the problem of torture by US troops
in Iraq. Yes, folks, he's banned cameras from all US installations in the country! Brilliant. I mean, us real
Amurkans know that real problem wasn't the torture, but the damn pictures that got leaked to the damn libral media. Right?
Well, anyway, it does give you an idea of where this administrations priorities are. Rather than making sure it stops happening they just want to make sure there aren't any more pictures.

What The Pentagon Isn't Telling Us.
Former UN Weapon Inspector Scott Ritter writes about the Sarin-filled artillery shell found in Iraq in the Christian Science Monitor
Given what's known about sarin shells, the US could be expected to offer a careful recital of the data with news of the shell. But facts that should have accompanied the story - the type of shell, its condition, whether it had been fired previously, and the age and viability of the sarin and precursor chemicals - were absent. And that's opened the door to irresponsible speculation that the shell was part of a live WMD stockpile. The data - available to the ISG - would put this development in proper perspective - allowing responsible discussion of the event and its possible ramifications.
Yeeeeees. And why might they withhold that information? I wonder....
