So, apparrently, we're an imperialist empire. Good to know...
And Moon-unit Sheehan is 'strongly considering' running against Diane Feinstein for the UNITED STATES SENATE. There's five words that should strike fear into the hearts and minds of everyone. Cindy Sheehan, United States Senator.
Another gem buried at the bottom of this story, is a blurb about the death of one Filiberto Ojeda Rios. Mr. Rios was apparrently shot and killed during an FBI raid. Apparrently, Mr. Rios had attracted the ire of the Federal Constabulary for perhaps being part of a robbery of a Wells Fargo armored truck to the tune of $7.2 Million. Yeah, I don't know why the feds wanted to see him.
This is important because when speaking on the topic of Mr. Rios, Hugo Chavez, that loveable 'president' of Venezuela, was quoted as saying "Viva Filiberto! Let's follow his example."
Yeah. Nice guy that Hugo Chavez. I wonder what might happen if he did come and pitch a tent in the ditch in Crawford, Texas with Cindy the next time she wants to have a sleepover.
In other news from the realm of the mentally detached, Hamas has decided that Israel needs to change their flag. Yep. Hamas is demanding that Israel change their national flag, because, and I quote,
"Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag. The stripes on the flag are symbols of occupation. They signify Israel's borders stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile."
Maybe it's just me, but ifin I were a betting man, I'd be wagering that this little tiff between Israel and Palestine is going to explode here sooner rather than later.
