Though most people know of them already, I’m sure : like The Memory Hole, the deliberately unbloglike UnderReported is a good way to try and keep track of the sh-tstorm of lies and propaganda howling around our heads, as of course is the excellent and more weblogesque These sites invite you to draw your own conclusions, an invitation we too rarely receive these days.
Though undeniably entertaining, reading the ranting of bloggers is less rewarding, perhaps. Your mileage, as they say, may vary. Which is not to say that I’m going to stop ranting any time soon, but rather to note that you, dear reader, should most assuredly take it for what it is worth, which is bugger-all other than a bit of (hopefully) amusing wordplay.
It must be said, too, that there are times when one has to stand back and point, with some small measure of humility, at some of the diamond-bullet stuff bloggers are pulling out of their hats, ranty or otherwise, like this little juxtapotato from a certain maniacal South African down the block :

“These despicable acts were committed by killers whose only faith is hate and the United States will find the killers and they will learn the meaning of American justice. Anytime anybody attacks our homeland, or our fellow citizens, we will be on the hunt. We will bring them to justice. Just ask the Taliban.”
– George W. Bush, President of the United States, Indiana, May 13th, 2003
“We had a great day… We killed a lot of people.”

  1. Thanks for posting this stav. Peeps is pullin’ shit out of their hats these days like never before. I wish I had an idea where any of this is going to lead. Life would certainly be more comfortable if we had just a simple solitary inkling.
    I’m tired of kidding myself.
    I want to simultaneously give up and find some way to construct a time machine. Which I guess means that I can do neither.

  2. The question is when will this violence end. With speeches like the one G.W. Bush held in Indiana provocation goes on and on. And one will not be able to protect American homeland (or any other Western country) against terrorism for sure.

  3. I can only quote: Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity.
