Ok -- So Bush and Cheney cop the presidency once again, after spending 4 years embarrassing the United States, plus a year-long election cycle in which their continual spitefulness, cupidity, hate-mongering, self-righteousness, and outright lying over and over and over again have more or less devalued and diminished the office of President completely.

That added to the fact that photographs exist from Cleveland of a person loading ballots from 40 precincts into a pickup truck with a Bush-Cheney sticker on it, then transferring the ballots (without any signing or documentation) to a semi- in a school parking lot instead of going to the election HQ, makes us wonder about the "curiously low" number of votes for Kerry in Cleveland, given the long long lines of voters.

Nothing to do about it. Certainly John Ashcroft won't go any faster on this than he did on the "who leaked the CIA agent's name?" investigation.

All I can do is offer these links to those who are interested in any of the following subjects:

The Hemlock Society

Canadian Immigration

If Canada seems too cold, or too close, and you need more generally applicable information, then try this:

Harper's Readers Guide to Expatriation

National War Tax Resistance Organization

War Resisters League

International Workers of the World (IWW -- The Wobblies -- we still need them)

Texas Secession (Surely we could do without them)

Bush Crime Family Links

High Plains Grifter: The Life and Crimes of George W. Bush

Dick Cheney/Halliburton Crimes

Dred Scott = Overturn Roe v Wade

But as to going along with: "Well, now let's all join together and support our president," I say, "Fuck him, fuck his Veep, his brother, his mother and father and the Saddam Hussein kickback money they rode in on. I still see a sociopathic murderer, a dim-witted true believer who is killing us and the world to get his mommy's approval, to get mommy to say, 'You're a better man than your father.' "

I have heard many southren accented folk calling CSPAN to tell them, "We're tahred of them callin' us rednecks and stupid..." And I am one who DOES NOT equate a southern accent with any lack of intelligence or education (I know too many intellectually brilliant Southrenners, especially Texans, to think that), but these particular people make me think of Brave New World's "We're Deltas and we're the best."

People who use others' words, whether "flip-flop" or "where's the beef?" or "Talk to the hand," or "Wassup?" ARE, as far as I can see, unthinking moronic robotic sheep and exemplify Winston Churchill's marvelous comment:

"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

And in this situation, where they have seemingly elected Georege W Bush, William Blake put it on the nose:

"People don't get what they deserve -- they get what they resemble.
