OK seriously now...

What do you think of the President's speech/overall plan? I'm way too tired to research everything or try to liveblog. But I want to see what y'all think.

I think it's way past time to step up force in Iraq. We can't win a war that we are afraid to use adequate force in.
But, like I said, I don't know all about the plan, so I won't go in detail right now =)
And, give me opinions please ^^

This just in: Bush to cancel Iraq speech and instead take on Rosie/ Trump fued

In a surprising move, President Bush has cancelled his scheduled Iraq
speech, instead opting to take on the more serious threat of the Donald Trump/ Rosie O' Donell Fued.
"Being a political dude, I decided to address this
issue, which seems far more critical to the American people than the
lives lost in Iraq and the overall war on terror."
The President said, in what
some asserted was a lowbrow political move
catering to younger voters.
The President's press secretary
disputed this claim at an emergency press
conference held earlier today.
"If we look at it logically," he was quoted,
"It's not just the Ipod crowd
that is concerned with this important issue."
He then added that the President was also "frankly, scared of Rosie."

No more details are available at this time,
but more will be reported as it
comes in.

I noticed something...

So, I guess we all know the butcher of Baghdad is dead, finally. But I noticed something when watching network reports of his death.
The first thing I noticed was a NBC Reporter's righteous pronouncement that "we will not be showing the execution video." That's nice. Where was the restraint during, say, the aftermath of the Tsunami?

Meanwhile, CNN seems to show Saddam more respect than they do American troops...

You know, personally, I don't want to see his body or his execution, but what makes him deserving of any respect? Just wondering.

Mother Has 12-Year-Old Son Arrested for Opening Christmas Gift Early

"What are you in for?..."

I'm not dead!

Really. I'm not. Life's been crazy, plus ever since I joined the little thing called myspace, I haven't been spending much productive time online!

But anyway, that reminds me of what I wanted to blog about. It may be a first for me, that is, a long post. So be patient.

Over the past few months I’ve heard a lot of discussion about the social website, by law enforcement, citizens and all sorts of talking-head experts on TV. Problem is, most of those people, expert as they may be, probably have about as much idea about myspace as my Mom.

Actually, she probably knows more, since I helped her get one recently.

I’m not putting down law enforcement, but I would just like to clear some things up and offer my own, unprofessional list of how to stay safe in the myspace world. Remember, I am actually sixteen years old, and unlike most people talking these days, I actually have one.
So read on.

#1: This is very important - MAKE YOUR PROFILE PRIVATE. That’s right.
Why don’t you, right now, go ahead and type in my name (those of you who may know it^^) in the myspace search.
What did you find?

Since there aren’t many of me out there, I assume you found yourself at a page with my picture, age and hometown (which I changed to simply say my state's name, another thing)and a message telling you "This user must add you as a friend for you to see their profile."
While we’re on the subject, I should admit I’m not as safe as I can be, either. Did I mention one can put up a generic display pic (say, anime) change their age to 99 if they wish, and remove their real location altogether?
It’s really very easy to make your profile private and secure.
Now I know it’s hard to resist the urge to let perfect strangers read your phone number and browse what you think of your crush and where you had dinner last Friday, but come on people, you just have to give some things up.

#2: Don’t accept any random friend request just because you’re so excited to see the "New friend requests!!" link. I mean really. If it’s that important to get 101 friends, go add Kelly Clarkson. But make sure it’s really Kelly, and not "kellyfangurl1." See, these rules really are simple.

#3 is really a continuation of number one. You know that hot guy who says he’s in the army, just moved to your town, and wants to get to know you better? Get. Real.
The "deny friend request" button is very easy to press. Go on, try it.

#4: Myspace chat Personally, I just stay away from them - I mean, after awhile, watching convos like
"You’re a F***ing d**k!
No YOU are!
No YOU are!" gets a little old. But I digress.
Once, when within two minutes of wandering into a "News and politics" (yes News and Politics) room, and thirty two year-old "Boris" was complimenting my looks, I did something revolutionary. I exited. Yep. That red "X" up there in the corner is there for a reason. Use it.

Now, I could go on and on about my safety rules for myspace (I feel practically parental!), but most of you are either bored or lost, or maybe both.
In fact, chances are, if you’ve gotten this far, you’re too old to have any clue what I’m talking about. So I have a suggestion: get a myspace.
It’s really easy to do, and no, you don’t have to add your kids, just get one. Try learning a bit about it before you talk about it.

And to all you people who have myspaces, just take this morsel of wonderful advice. Use your brain. It’s surprisingly easy. Just use it.

See? Who knew I was a self-help guru? ^_^

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Hey y'all- go thank a veteran!

Did you notice...

Republicans aren't complaining that America has fallen into the hands of the devil.

Republicans aren't calling for National recounts.

Republicans aren't complaining of voter fraud.

Republicans aren't vowing to fight against Nancy Pelosi.

Repubicans aren't charging voter intimidation and disenfranchisement.

You know, it seems to me that Republicans are just better... losers.

Just a reminder

Vote GOP!
