I had a hard time getting up enough energy to blog tonight. Every story I wanted to write about is so depressing. Starting with this one.
As if the poor Japanese people hadn't suffered enough, now they must face their worst nightmare.
As must the rebels in Libya. Because now that the eyes of the world are focused on Japan, who will stop the degenerate tyrant from slaughtering them?
Then there's Obama, the
Obama responded that if Manning's treatment is good enough for the Pentagon, it is good enough for him. "I've actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards," Obama said, suggesting some of those procedures were to protect Manning's safety. "They have assured me that they are."
Even though everybody knows it's TORTURE.
"I became upset. Out of frustration, I clenched my hair with my fingers and yelled: 'Why are you doing this to me? Why am I being punished? I have done nothing wrong.'"
And then of course, there's that other cloud hanging over my head. The possibility that we could be fighting an election in less than ten days.
Stephen Harper might finally win his precious majority. And use it to torture and slaughter the Canada we know and love.
Oh boy. Talk about blogging in a nightmare world. If you don't blog you can try to ignore what's going on out there. If you do you can't.
I think I need a break. I may have to give up blogging, and just make videos. Or go back to writing poems about trees, even though the woods are full of policemen.
Or maybe I'll just do what the guy in this new R.E.M. video does.
And hope I'll feel better tomorrow ...
If I'm not ARRESTED.
And that's it eh? That's all I wanted to say.
Live life to the fullest. Fight for freedom as hard as you can.
Because they are both so FRAGILE...
