Be More Angry, Goddammit!

How bad is it when the President of your country goes to another country then when he leaves, they have to warsh the entire country and everyone gets cootie shots. Circle, circle, dot, dot, now you're cleansed of Bush's evil fucking presence. Sheesh.

Priests to Purify Site After Bush Visit:
"GUATEMALA CITY — Mayan priests will purify a sacred archaeological site to eliminate 'bad spirits' after President Bush visits next week, an official with close ties to the group said Thursday.

'That a person like (Bush), with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States, with the wars he has provoked, is going to walk in our sacred lands, is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture,' Juan Tiney, the director of a Mayan nongovernmental organization with close ties to Mayan religious and political leaders, said Thursday."

Read it all:

Norman Lear: It Will Take the Left to Right This Ship
This blog began: 'There is an element missing in the 'Democrat/Liberal/Progressive, you name it, response to the mind bending breakdown of everything' we see around us. That missing element is the angst and the anger, the fierceness and the desperation, that comes only when we finally awaken and see the truth: Our country, our way of life is disappearing before our eyes!!

The extreme right, the ultra-conservatives, neo-cons, call them what you may, saw our national scenario in that light from their standpoint 25 years ago. They were losing the America they believed in to the libs and the evolutionists; the gays, and the humanists; the coastal elites and the femi-nazis. I think they saw it correctly. Progressive thought was on the march. Well, on the crawl, anyway. Glacier-like, perhaps, America was becoming more inclusive, more tolerant, more progressive, more humanistic -- and it frightened the shit out of them! Their way of life was threatened and they had a country to save. Fiercely, with favor toward none, they went about saving it. They declared war on the left, while successfully branding everything not right of center as the devil -- and, bless them, Americans all, look at the heights they have reached in a relatively short period of time.."

If this be true, then the smell in my room this morning made me remember the beer and steak I had yesterday.

Roles of smell, sleep in memory studied
"Scientists studying how sleep affects memory have found that the whiff of a familiar scent can help a slumbering brain better remember things that it learned the evening before. A rose bouquet -- delivered to people's nostrils as they studied and, later, as they slept -- improved their performance on a memory test by almost 15 percent."


Yay, Darwinism! The entire purpose of the Jackass show is to cull the heard.

Man burns genitals in 'Jackass' stunt:
"EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - Attempts to do a movie stunt landed one man in the hospital with burned genitals and another facing criminal charges. The men were trying to do a stunt from one of the 'Jackass' movies, in which a character lights his genitals on fire."
