Apparently all of the curses that were put upon Steanso by the unhappy readers of his blog came to fruition last night in the form of a big ass storm that not only knocked out Steanso's power, but also knocked a rather large tree onto Steanso's roof. Exploding transformers, two trees down, and possible roof damage. Who knew that Rami had such powerful voodoo forces at her command? Steanso is chagrined by these latest developments, to say the least, but he shall perservere.
Oh, the humanity!
Here's something else Steanso is thrilled about today:
Bush still just doesn't get it. Anyone who doesn't stand by his policy of human rights abuses must hate America, right? No, George, we just hate you, you arrogant, self-righteous idiot. At this point, I just want to put George in a few "stress positions" or let him spend some time in Guantanamo's "sensory modification" sessions so he can see how his "freedom" and "democracy" feel to people who are on the losing end of his agenda. To hear Bush continually justify his abuses of power with the words "freedom" and "democracy" demeans the very concepts that those words represent. I mean, for God's sake, these people in Guantanamo haven't even had trials! (and if the military/federal goverment is so certain that all of its "detainees" from Guantanamo are terrorists, why not open up the whole prisoner review process to public inspection? Personally, I think most of the guys in their are probably just soldiers who were fighting to defend their country against foreign invaders). I just can't believe this man is our president. Every time he opens his mouth I feel like I'm in some kind of a bad dream that I can't wake up from. It would all be so absurd as to be amusing if only George weren't hurting and killing people. As things stand, I truly think Bush should be held accountable for committing war crimes, in violation of the Geneva Convention. I'm not saying this just to bitch about Republicans, either- I'm saying it because Bush has totally given up America's moral high ground within the international community, and now every one of our enemies is going to feel entirely justified in torturing American troops when they are captured. If Bush had ever actually had to serve in the military in any capacity that actually put him at risk (or if he had even been in a position where he faced the risk of being drafted into a dangerous military assignment instead of resting easy with the confidence that his rich, well-connected family could protect him), he might at least give this viewpoint some consideration....
