I find it interesting that there are now reports that the U.S. military drafted plans for terrorism on American cities in the 1960s to provoke a war with Cuba. Those Americans who continue to claim that our government is working toward their best interests are just deluding themselves.
Counterpunch: Psychic and Political Numbing in Preparations for War
Guardian: U.S. adviser warns of Armageddon. Reading this article made me wonder who the fundamentalist Arabs hate more, the U.S. or Israel? If Saddam has weapons of mass destruction, where would he use them first?
Insight Magazine: Looting Russia’s Free Market
Experts in the U.S. for years have been worrying about the rising numbers of retiring men and women who will be relying on Social Security, and have indicated that there simply isn’t enough money in the system to cover everyone.

BushWatch: Twenty Things We’ve Learned Since 9/11. I fear that Bush&Co are leading this country down a dangerous path, for many of the wrong reasons. I’m tired of the political hidden agendas. I’m tired of the way politicians and Big Business continually lie to the American public. I’m tired of how broken our government is and really hope someone with true political gristle is elected in 2004; someone who can clean out the claptrap that is currently clogging our political system and harming our society and economy.

Dori thinks they’ve gone and changed the formula to Mountain Dew without informning the public. I don’t drink soda anymore but if I were a regular Dew drinker, I’d be pretty pissed off about this.
Turning a desktop phone into a cellular phone. This is one of those projects that makes the geek in me split open a wide grin.
Is Apple creating a PDA/Cell Phone? It would be a logical step for them. Hmmm, they happen to own the domain iphone.org.
