#infoanarchy Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -- Benjamin Franklin || Q: Anybody know what the three letter symbol for the new Baghdad Intl Airport is? A: "OIL!"!!!

Things I should not be able to say during war with iraq

Eddie Vedder booed by "Several concertgoers" for trashing bush

GabeW: But did they report on "several concertgoers" who probably cheered?
GabeW: Extremely clear evidence of biased reporting, in case you were looking for some..
GabeW: At least the way the headline reads
GabeW: Why isn't "bad music prompts walkout at <pick your favorite pop star>" news then?



Making fine wines with wireless networking

Bush is cracking up!

seti: Hahaha. "Related news: Linux developer gets laid"





GabeW: Must read stuff
matthew: "White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said that while President Bush is monitoring the situation in Iraq, he is leaving the day-to-day decision making to the military experts. First they kick Geraldo out, then we rescued that female soldier, now we find out Bush isn't making the decisions. No wonder the stock market went up today." ?Jay Leno
matthew: "Much of Central America is in the coalition mostly because we already liberated them repeatedly, vigorously and covertly, and believe me, they don't want to go through one of those liberations again." ?Jon Stewart


seti: nuff said.

Transcript of BBC interview with Don Rumsfeld (aired a month ago)

seti: A few highlights: About halfway down Rumsfeld confesses he knowingly visited Iraq when it was on the list of terror states... he denies saying untrue things about Israel, then further on retracts those denials...

HTML Sucks Completely


A_Young: Intel employee held without charge in US


MediaGuardian -- War Watch

A_Young: ".. war, with the lines between fact and propaganda being blurred on a daily basis .. MediaGuardian.co.uk charts the contradictory claims and counter claims made so far."


A_Young: This is NOT matthew's new constitution project
A_Young: June 3, 1997 "American foreign and defense policy is adrift. .. We aim to change this. We aim to make the case and rally support for American global leadership. .. Having led the West to victory in the Cold War, America faces an opportunity and a challenge.."
A_Young: ".. We seem to have forgotten the essential elements of the Reagan Administration's success: a military that is strong and ready to meet both present and future challenges; a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad; and national leadership that accepts the United States' global responsibilities."
malaclyps: wow, Jeb Bush and Dan Quayle. That's like getting Dumb and Dumber on the masthead
A_Young: "[signed] Elliott Abrams Gary Bauer William J. Bennett Jeb Bush Dick Cheney Eliot A. Cohen Midge Decter Paula Dobriansky Steve Forbes Aaron Friedberg Francis Fukuyama Frank Gaffney Fred C. Ikle Donald Kagan Zalmay Khalilzad I. Lewis Libby Norman Podhoretz Dan Quayle Peter W. Rodman Stephen P. Rosen Henry S. Rowen Donald Rumsfeld Vin Weber George Weigel Paul Wolfowitz"
A_Young: Welcome to the New World Order. Please check your conscience at the door.

2GB DIMMS are a go

wmf: if you can stomach the price, that is


Best line ever, "That is one heck of a well prepared dead guy." from Trigun

Bush Poetry (no not that kind!)

A_Young: "Rarely is the question asked Is our children learning? Will the highways of the Internet become more few? How many hands have I shaked?"

The Poetry of D.H. Rumsfeld (parody)

A_Young: "Until now, the secretary's poetry has found only a small and skeptical audience: the Pentagon press corps. Every day, Rumsfeld regales reporters with his jazzy, impromptu riffs. Few of them seem to appreciate it."



A_Young: "When a government seeks to paint any opposition as unpatriotic and any dissent as treason, when it uses its allies in industry and the media to hound skeptics and blacklist celebrities, when it attempts to paint legitimate questions of policy as either a vote for America or a vote for dictatorship, that's not freedom any more. That's fascism. Smart people know the difference."
A_Young: "The Woolseys and Gaffneys of the world are out spreading the message that WWIV has arrived. And, despite the fact that us lefties were branded conspiracy theorists for pointing out that this was the plan mere months ago, now we're being told that the president has been telling us this all along."


A_Young: Just had this for lunch .. it goes locally for AU$19.99 / kg
A_Young: mmmmmmmm
A_Young: Actually, I can't see how they pick one good brie above another, but .. who cares :)

coderman: </vent>
A_Young: "We explicitly ignore TTL because this can be used by an attacker." We had to destroy the browser to save the browser. End of transmission.
coderman: look at how many duplicates have been entered.. heh


matthew: "My real name is Lion-O," he explained at a press conference later in the day. "Condoleezza Rice is really called Cheetara, and Collin Powell is Panthro. The other Thundercats are around somewhere." Curiously, when asked about Dick Cheney's true identity, all the President could do was shiver and say, "Mumm-Ra".
A_Young: " The EPCOT centre, traditionally the shittest part of the Walt Disney World experience, is to be revamped in a $4 billion move that may make or break the Florida enterprise. "We're going to turn it into a brothel," explained a spokesperson. 'It may be against the original spirit of Walt Disney, but now he's fucking dead we can do what we like.'"
