    These are not just little white lies. They're acts of evil:

    The Downing Street memos already proved it, but this past week a new secret British communication further confirmed that Bush and Blair were dead set on preemptive war, no matter how many weapons of mass destruction Saddam possessed or did not possess, and no matter Saddam's level of compliance with UN resolutions, and no matter if the UN approved or not. Yet, Bush went on national TV in his 2003 SOTU and again in early March 2003 to tell us that it was up to Saddam whether there would be war or not. To date, 2330 American service men and women have died, and 17000+ have suffered lifelong injuries.

    "We do not torture" Bush told a press conference in 2005, while he knew that prisoners were being hauled off to secret prisons for precisely that purpose, and while he knew of anti-Geneva practices at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.

    "I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees" he said after Katrina, while a video with Michael Brown shows that Bush and Chertoff were fully warned about such breaches, and that he just sat there making empty promises but not asking any questions.

    "Any time you hear of wiretaps, you're talking about getting a court order" he said in 2004, while all the while knowing he had personally signed off on an anti-FISA program of wiretaps without such court orders.

    Bush was told in October 2002 that the British claim of Saddam seeking uranium in Africa was bogus, but used it in his 2003 SOTU, anyway, to build a case that Saddam was building a nuclear weapons program.

    Along those same lines, newly released government records prove that Bush was told that the infamous aluminum tubes were not for nuclear weapons, but for conventional weapons, and yet he used that charge, too, both in his SOTU and by Colin Powell in front of the UN.

    You people are nuts. Ham sandwiches with lettuce, white american cheese, and pepper lightly sprinkled, are the best for a quick, simple lunch.

    It's easy to be callous when you're not dead or injured.

    you know what else is easy & delicious? Hotdogs. Toss em in the oven, set it on broil & in 5 minutes they are ready to go. Deeelicious. Sprinkled cheddar cheese, ketchup, maybe some chili if I'm feeling classy. Fritos on the side really completes it.

    I made a steak and some rice-a-roni for dinner tonight.

    But I'll probably have roast beef for lunch tomorrow at Subway.
