So its gay pride
I could not even count how many straight men ran out and took pictures with their cell phones
But I guess I’m feeling my age cause the topless women did nada for me
Like I was saying
NOT going out dancing after marching 42 blocks in the heat

i watched the first episode of "30 Days" on cable
anyway this was about trying to live on minimum wage for 30 days
they left behind their credit cards and only took one weeks pay of a full time week of minimum wage after taxes- left less then most folks i know spend in two days
it just made me feel so deeply
we search out around the world to help
lets look to our own too
cause you know its so true ...
there but for the grace of god.......
love that lady

I just received an email from the great Greg Palast with the following time-line and I will just quote directly from Greg (read him on my linkie love list) below..
February 2001 - Only one month after the first Bush-Cheney inauguration, the State Department's Pam Quanrud organizes a secret confab in California to make plans for the invasion of Iraq and removal of Saddam. US oil industry advisor Falah Aljibury and others are asked to interview would-be replacements for a new US-installed dictator.
On BBC Television's Newsnight, Aljibury himself explained,
October/November 2001 - An easy military victory in Afghanistan emboldens then-Dep. Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz to convince the Administration to junk the State Department "coup" plan in favor of an invasion and occupation that could remake the economy of Iraq. And elaborate plan, ultimately summarized in a 101-page document, scopes out the "sale of all state enterprises" -- that is, most of the nation's assets, "… especially in the oil and supporting industries."
2002 - Grover Norquist and other corporate lobbyists meet secretly with Defense, State and Treasury officials to ensure the invasion plans for Iraq include plans for protecting "property rights." The result was a pre-invasion scheme to sell off Iraq's oil fields, banks, electric systems, and even change the country's copyright laws to the benefit of the lobbyists' clients. Occupation chief Paul Bremer would later order these giveaways into Iraq law.
Fall 2002 - Philip Carroll, former CEO of Shell Oil USA, is brought in by the Pentagon to plan the management of Iraq's oil fields. He works directly with Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith. "There were plans," says Carroll, "maybe even too many plans" -- but none disclosed to the public nor even the US Congress.
January 2003 - Robert Ebel, former CIA oil analyst, is sent, BBC learns, to London to meet with Fadhil Chalabi to plan terms for taking over Iraq's oil.
March 2003 - What White House spokesman Ari Fleisher calls "Operations Iraqi Liberation" (OIL) begins. (Invasion is re-christened "OIF" -- Operation Iraqi Freedom.)
March 2003 - Defense Department is told in confidence by US Energy Information Administrator Guy Caruso that Iraq's fields are incapable of a massive increase in output. Despite this intelligence, Dep. Secretary Wolfowitz testifies to Congress that invasion will be a free ride. He swears, "There's a lot of money to pay for this that doesn't have to be U.S. taxpayer money. …We're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon," a deliberate fabrication promoted by the Administration, an insider told BBC, as "part of the sales pitch" for war.
May 2003 - General Jay Garner, appointed by Bush as viceroy over Iraq, is fired by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. The general revealed in an interview for BBC that he resisted White House plans to sell off Iraq's oil and national assets."That's just one fight you don't want to take on," Garner told me. But apparently, the White House wanted that fight. The general also disclosed that these invade-and-grab plans were developed long before the US asserted that Saddam still held WDM:
So here we are today…it seems like mainstream media are afraid to speak out against this administration…so are a lot of mainstream Americans.
The general mood is to speak out against the president is to speak out against America…..but this president is lieing to America for his own purposes and they are OILY ones honey... To be American is to be able to speak out against those who are supposed to represent you. Isn't it?!
We are in a time where it seems that the only way you can find honest, journalists brave enough to speak out against Bush is to read blogs.
Blogs are of course the curse and the scorn of mainstream media, only now they are being forced to listen to us bloggers, cause you know what, there’s a whole lot of us!
So what I want to know is this…let’s say you are pro Bush, pro war, pro Republican, pro the whole shebang….doesn’t it still bug the hell out of you that your president…slanted the facts, created the facts, to achieve a goal he had decided well before any facts were in?
Don’t you feel just a little bit manipulated and lied to?
Why the hell would you want to impeach a president for lieing about where he put his pecker and not want to impeach a president for lieing about the reasons to go to war, spend billions of dollars and kill thousands of people?!
Maybe I’m just blonde here…but honey color me confused.

He seems to me to be in many ways Tyson is the typical bully
I just don’t have much pity or respect for Mike Tyson and really how could I…
Lets take a look at the wonder boy's career that ended with him getting whooped by the big Irish boy Kevin McBride.
Okay he started out bad was a bit of a juvenile delinquent, stealing purses and ultimately getting sent to a reform school
Amazingly while at the reform school….he comes to the attention of a boxing instructor…who takes him under his wing..and voila its like an ABC after school special…with Tyson winning his first major fight and going on a year and a half later to knocking out Trevor Berbick and becoming at 20 years old the youngest WBC heavyweight champ ever..
A few months later Tyson whoops James Smith too and becomes the WBA heavyweight champ too..
At this point Iron Mike and his EGO are on the top of the world…so naturally that’s when the shit hits the fan…he is charged with a misdemeanor assault on a parking attendant but pays his way out of it..
Then he marries the queen of mean actress Robin Givens who mortifies him on national television by telling the world he is manic depressive and she is afraid of him…amazingly that marriage ends in divorce shortly after the police are called in to stop him from throwing furniture out the window..guess that wasn't a good sign
I think having his ass kicked by Buster Douglas was the real down turn point for Mike…it didn’t seem like he was ever the same after that..he lost his title
Yep…king of the world could have any girl he wants
Tysons comeback is nailed short when he loses to Evander Holyfield .
Oh it’s a blur of crapola after that. He was sentenced to two.. two-year sentences for assaulting two motorists after a minor accident.
He gets released from jail and goes back to the ring where he
Not surprisingly his second marriage goes to the divorce lawyers.
Then Mikey throws a punch at a Lewis bodyguard and winds up being denied a boxing license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Lewis has the real last laugh when he knocks out Mikey in the eighth round of their heavyweight title bout.
Mikey gets arrested after fighting with two men and is charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
In 2003 Mikey announces that he has filed for Chapter 11 protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, claiming he has squandered nearly $300 million through lavish spending and bad advice.
Then he is 86’d in the fourth round by British heavyweight Danny Williams in the summer of 2004 and in the summer of 2005 he is 86’d by the big Irish boy Kevin McBride.
Tyson says his heart isn’t in it anymore and he’s retiring.
Well Mikey…seems to me
You were given a chance to have it all
Here’s hoping the next young boy who is taken under the wing by a caring mentor and rises to the top has a whole lot more respect for the responsibility of greatness.
Greatness is a crown that should be worn with decency, not throw into the face of anyone smaller then yourself.
Mike Tyson…you’re a typical bully….all steam but the second someone stands up to you, you show yourself to be a true loser..
If you want to change your image this time
That would be a nice start..
