Armageddon. It's already started in the middle east, once India and Pakistan start exchanging nukes, it's game over man, game over.

We live in awesome times to be conspiracy theorists. Cold war era ain't got nothin on this new millenia.

What I find truly awe inspiring is that the congressional actions against Bush are being led by such a great and immaculate pillar of morality such as Specter. Rolling Eyes

Now if only Rick Santorum would blame Bush for clogging up the internet with porn and pirated movies all the knives would be out. Very Happy

Santorum is on my shit list. He's on my shit list right next to Addington.

My shit list is serious -- neither Bush nor Cheney are on it, by a long shot. It involves only those individuals who I feel that it is worthwhile to politically despise down to the very last molecule.

Or it could be the glut of mis-/underinformed, irresposible voters coupled with the inactive-in-and/or-apathetic-of-the-political-process majority Confused

Which is of course fostered in part by the political system running a two-party system almost exclusively and the constant ad hominem campaigning instead of solidly declaring candidate platforms in a way that addressed the substantiative problems of running a government.
