GW Bush talkin' some shit.

From some article I just read on CNN:
Appearing with British Prime Minister Tony Blair at the NATO summit in Turkey, President Bush said Monday that the insurgents were taking hostages because "They can't whip our militaries."

"What they can do is get on your TV screens and stand in front of your TV cameras and cut someone's head off in order to get us to cringe and retreat. That's their strongest weapon," he said

That's fucking sweet, dude. Keep struttin' around and shaking off gruesome murder after gruesome murder. We'll see how ridiculous "their strongest weapon" is when they get a hold of one of YOUR daughters and cut her head off.

And another thing...

Two things, actually:

1. Amazon can eat it. I was going through my gold box, and for one of the items in there, it said "Sorry, we've just run out of this item. Our Gold Box deals are so good, sometimes we can't keep up!"

Fuck you guys. Get it out of my gold box! Don't taunt me with a great deal that could have been. Don't use up one of the precious ten spaces in my gold box just to tell me about something that I can't have!! Bastards.

Also, in related bitching about my gold box, why were four of the items in there sets of hoop earrings? I have never ordered a single piece of "jewelry" from Amazon. What makes the gold box think I want hoop earrings? I mean, I can understand offering ONE pair... You know, just testing the waters to see if I'm interested at all. Certainly after two or three offers, they'd get the hint.

Amazon can eat it for many other reasons which I won't go in to now.

2. I wish my new glasses would be ready soon. It seriously sucks to sit in front of a computer for a week without them. It's going to suck even more when I leave for the bay area (again) tomorrow for three days of meetings and then another four days of travel without them. Vision = good.
