Ever long for the days when we had a system under law that treated people more fairly? And is pining for the past completely foolish? It might be, Senator Barack Obama voted in favor of stripping even more of our Fourth Amendment protection away, the one that says "your private papers and possessions are free from government snoops without a warrant") giving our hideous monster of a president even more latitude in invading your privacy via monitoring phone calls and email and giving the phone companies retroactive immunity from legal action on behalf of those violated. And coincidentally, getting itself, uh, himself off of the hook.
Way to go, Sen. Obama!

**** it, let's just vote for someone who isn't a lying sack of.......is there anyone? I dunno, I don't think Kucinich voted for any of that ****. Why didn't we nominate him? Cause he's little? That's a stupid reason not to vote for someone.

I would've voted for him but he had already dropped out by the time the primaries rolled around for me.

Dammit. Why is it always like this.

I know why it's like this, but I find I'm happier when I pretend not to.

We should just buy Hawaii from the US Govt (I hear they are strapped for cash, you know) and form the nation of AOA.

uuuuuuuurrrrrggghhhhhhhhh

Personally. I looked forward to an Edwards/Kucinich ticket, but they were more honest than the oligarchy could handle. Sigh. Onward, through the fog.

Sorry for puking my frustration on this thread. An Edwards/Kucinich ticket would've been damn good.

Anyways....case badge = teh rox0rz

I think we missed a good bet with Edwards...While I like Kucinich's mind, I'm less sure of his ability to govern... Obama...well Obama is looking more "usual" everyday...

We slaughtered 20,000,000 when we took this continent...do we really believe there will be no retribution for our sins as nation?

If so, how can we assert that God loves America? If he loves us...he will let us pay for the sins of our fathers...yes?

Not really an American train of thought is it? ":O}

If you step off of the razzmatazz machine, which becomes easier day by day, that's a very American statement!

HAVA (the Help America Vote Act) created a gold rush that resulted in a slew of easy to use voting machines that are owned by corporations, instead of by a county. These machines flip the voters choice into the oligarchy's choice, just enough to negate the popular vote. Even though some precincts in Ohio with a handful of voters returned solid blocs of thousands of votes for the GOP, that was peachy keen for the oligarchy and this cheating wasn't condemned in the popular media.

Could this happen again? Yes, almost assuredly.

I think I've been processed a bit too much. Spindled and folded, enough already. Case badges, they still look great. PM me for your free one today!

A case badge is of little consequence in the wild world. No, he didn't say that?! But they are a nice touch of civilization. Spread some sanity, PM me for your free AOA case badge today!

WAKE UP GEORGE! THIS IS THE DAY!

(Note to our members!:

One day each year we allow George out of his cubicle on 2231st floor

(From which he folds AOA badges into paper air planes of Astonishing flight characteristics and launches them out the tiny window which lets in just enough light for cloasters

(They're really the same guy, but we Imprisoned him under the name cloasters and only later learned he had contacted his attorneys under the name George!)

to slip a badge into an envelope and begin to fold...

We allow him out on the roof and permit him to survey the world.

(We usually just show him a cardboard map we used a shot gun to blast a bunch of flag-pins into Google maps style, only ours don't light up...the glare would hurt Georges eyes...it's a pretty tiny window he launches the badges out of....

This year's no different...":O}!!

Oh! LOOK! George! While I was explaining to our members about your day out...we've run out of time! No,... a few more minutes wouldn't make a big difference,... but there's a principle involved!

Back in ya go! See ya next year! BTW your Lawyer wants a case badge...we sort of came to an agreement both he and we could live with...see to it please! ":O}

Happy 4th of July George!

What a view from the case badge and comedy suite on the 223rd floor of the mighty AOA Bvilding! Not to worry, I only repair to my cubby hole of a second office when Daniel ~ visits us here in the Tragicomic Department-- if he's in a bad mood, that is.
Slow summer afternoon, I'm off to office number two for a nap. See ya!

People look like ants? From up here, you can't see them on the sidewalks unless they're in groups of ten or more. No, no you can't "accidently" drop a penny out of my little paper airplane launching window. Not happening, fugetaboudit.

Speaking of pennies, when did the UK switch to "metric" coins? LSD was crazy, but it had a certain charm.

"LSD" as in "Pounds/Shillings/Pence." I know, kinda weird. Oops, don't forget "Guineas."

Maybe a country is still named something Guinea? Is Guiana still French? If so; way to hold on to a colony, Mesdames et Monsieurs!

The European Space Agency launches their big ones in French Guiana. It's like they're afraid to do it in Europe. Wassa matta, you all scared they might go boom in your own back yard?

Escape velocity being 17,500 mph/28,164 kph, it seems unlikely that Earth creatures would venture into space in a natural course of events. Does this mean that we should put our house in order before blessing the universe with our fantabulous selves?

Sadly, no. Thank goodness that Republicans in Space(remember the Muppets?) will in all probability remain impossible.
