Who knows what’s up anymore? I certainly don’t. I’m like a chicken (Maybe a Rooster), let out of a hen house with no where to go. Am I being watched? Is the Bush Secret Police following me? I’ve got e-mails of every kind with information that would make your ears ring for days. Do I believe any of it? No, not anymore, all I believe is what I can see with my own eyes and feel with my own heart nowadays. I’ll let everyone “break” broken news. There’s too much going on that’s real to talk about.

The CBS Network is in Iraq showing us the “results” from the surge. Katie Couric asked General Pratraus if she was getting a “dog and pony show” in Fallujah. Yes, Katie you were. I expect you knew that too. Meanwhile things in Basra have been heating up. Laura Logan says that there are many Iranians in Iraq that are doing more than casual business. What are they doing Laura? Who are your sources, the CIA? Are you getting the “old dog and pony show” too?

I’m so tired of people manipulating me. This is working this isn’t working. We are successful in this but not on that. Enough is enough! Just close shop and get our troops home. Get out of the “run the world racket” and fix things at home. Worried about oil? Stop buying it for a week and watch the Middle East swim in the stuff and the price go down to $50 a barrel. With the amount of money we have spent on Iraq, we could have bought all of that oil.

Where’s Rice? Where’s Laura? We are seeing an ineffectual Bush pushing hard for his war with Iran. Where’s The Dick? Is he busy making last minute preparations for the Coronation? The voting system integrity in this country is at an all-time low. The computer generated results can and have been fixed 51% to 49%, yet this does nothing to the American people as they travel to Wal-Mart and The Dollar Store to get the “stuff” that makes their lives brighter. So what if the man they voted for didn’t win, after all aren’t we all a little inured to deceit?

War with Iran would be a hoot! Right? We could show the rest of the World who is the biggest bully on the block. We could do this to “defend” America. Hitler never waged an offensive war. They were all defensive wars in the eyes of the German People. The people of Katrina must stand on their own two feet! It’s not the government’s fault that they didn’t inform the people of New Orleans that Lake Ponceitrains’s levees had broken twelve hours before the people were notified. The Army Corps of Engineers tried to build them well, it’s just that they’re budget kept being slashed to “defend” us in Iraq.

So what are you going to do on the 11th of September? I’m not doing anything. I’m not buying anything, writing anything, filling up my car or anything else. What are you doing on the 15th of September? I know where I’ll be. I’ll be in New York City at the rally to get us out of Iraq.

We have a long hard road ahead of us. The people in Congress (save a few) are not listening. We have to do all of the things that we did in the 1970”s to get these Kool-Aid drinkers to listen to us again. Sure would be nice if John Kerry, Edward Kennedy, Dennis Kucinich, John Edwards, Al Gore, Mike Gravel, Ron Paul and a few more would go on stage and tell the American People what’s being done “in their name” around the world.

“Don’t ask Jack to help you ‘cause he’ll turn the other ear”* Won’t you please come to NYC or DC just to show you’re face.

*CSN "Won't You Please Come to Chicago" 1970
