it seems that the democrats are trying to get bush to announce a date for pulling our troops out of iraq. some republicans are jumping ship and joining them. i'd like to think that this is being done for the betterment of the country.... but its not. the democrats are doing it because they have to be opposed to anything republican and the republicans are jumping ship because bush's numbers scare them. the opinion polls are rating bush as low or lower as he has ever been. i guess with over 1700 soldiers dead and the downing street memo...etc americans are starting to pull their heads out of their asses and seeing this war for what it is. we shouldnt have been there in the first place and the only way our soldiers are coming home is when bush's oil buddies tell him they can. bush says that by giving a date we help the insurgents...well....the insurgents seem to be doing ok right now. bush seems to be a great recruiting tool for them. i'm sure our soldiers will come home as soon as the bush family and friends are done raping that country for every penny it has.
in another all-american story about a truly all-american company sams club (a division of wal-mart) in st. petersburg, florida fired an employee named molly beavers (insert joke here) because she didnt smile enough. molly did push food samples and collect grocery carts for what i am sure is a great salary and benefits so i can see why they want her smiling (i mean, with a job like that who wouldnt smile). the rub here is that molly face was partially paralyzed from surgery related to her condition as a achondroplastic dwarf. now i'm all for hiring dwarfs, they make every job more fun, but you think someone would have noticed this problem of hers. maybe they couldnt see her over the carts she was pushing. she wants an apology and compensation for back wages and i hope she gets them. any time you can put it to sam walton and family its a good thing.
oprah winfrey , in a baffling display of her thought process, has claimed to be of zulu ancestry. she did this while speaking to a group in south africa. somehow i get the feeling that if oprah were speaking in dublin she'd be irish. i've seen pictures of those zulu's and she didnt get that coveted thin dna. she looks like she ate a group of zulu's. they would have hunted her down and if lucky enough to kill her had a huge celebration in the village (they would eat for years). oprah sure knows how to play to the crowd. that is one kooky broad.
ok kids have fun, hope your thursday is a good one
