Drinking Liberally: Iran Amok

Sabers are rattling from Washington D.C. to Tehran. Iran reports they have enriched uranium. Sy Hersh reports U.S. military strategists are drawing up plans for a nuclear first strike. Saudi Arabia is asking the Russians to intervene. Our troops are amassed in the neighboring morass of Iraq. The news media is unflappably blase about the possible use of nukes. The Republican Noise Machine is gearing up for 2006 Congressional elections. We've got a President in Iran who hates Jews and believes the world will end in the next 2 or 3 years and a President in the United States who loves Jesusy freedom at the barrel of a gun and believes that the world will end whenever he's damn good and ready.

When Major Generals make sense! I think.

I had no idea who General Chong is or the source of these thoughts... so when I received them, I almost deleted them - as well-written as they are. But then I did a "Google search" on the General and found him to be a retired Air Force Surgeon of all things and past Commander of Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio. So he is real, is connected to Veterans affairs, and these are his thoughts. They are worth reading and thinking about!! (the same Google search will direct you to some of his other thought-provoking writings.)

The hits just keep on comin'

Which is better? That Charles Taylor got caught in incriminating emails that the Associated Press "obtained" yesterday? Or that the Chippewa tribe that benefited from his ill-doings is showing him up (as well as Abramoff et al) by giving back the money!!!

But their suggestions on how to reallocate the funds are even classier than returning it (which, to be fair was to build a school, can you believe it? What they have to do to get money for a friggin' school!)

Everybody Is Invited! So now you can't say you didn't know!

Please pass this along to others! Your Presence is requested on Friday April 14th at 10pm and the American-Legion- VFW Post on Lower Main Street,Robbinsville,NC for the Official Opening of the Graham County Veterans Service Office! In Attendance will be Heath Shuler,Canadate for Congress and State Senator John Snow & others! A special Iraq Veteran Guest of Honor will be in Attendance and Refereshments served!

Govo. Easley Says Drilling off Virginia Coast Could Hurt N.C.

(Cross-posted at the new Appalachian Voices blog)

Don't always agree with Governor Easley. Not always impressed with him. But he has been kicking ass on the environment, first with his opposition to the sale of the National Forests. Now this.

There is an offshore drilling moratorium for the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts that isn't set to expire until 2012. However, there are some special interests in Virginia that want to see that overturned much sooner.
