our lives as fungi

Sixteen Americans watching
Fox News Channel
to get a sharp grasp on Reality.

Ah, fooey, I think I'm a good writer, but I'll never come up with anything this good. This is from a blog called Newshounds ("We watch Fox so you don't have to") and the blogger is referring to how Fox News Channel informs and educates the American public:

We are mushrooms,
kept in the dark and fed manure.

Unfortunately, too many American's brains have turned into mushrooms. My parents still think that we should follow the chimp-in-chief, even if he is wrong...something about respecting his office.

I am beginning to think that we are seeing America come apart at the seams. The "American" experiment needs serious revision. Chief among them is a small, dank jail cell for each of the Administration stooges who for years have allowed things to get to such a point that we are in fact NOT safer now than we were four years ago tomorrow.

President Bush and his cabinet are all criminals, and should be at least charged with negligent homicide, and up to murder one.

Let's see how President Bush likes the death penalty now.

When I was an Attempted Quaker -- they called me Bob the Loud Abusive Angry Quaker -- I worked to entice ordinary citizens innocently passing our table outside the supermarket to sign petitions to oppose the Death Penalty. (We made far more converts, and received far fewer angry objections, than you might think.)

I learned a lot from reading the pamphlets. And I have some bad news for you.

President Bush is a white guy. (You probably knew that.)

In the USA, when a white guy and a black guy are sentenced to be executed for identical crimes, the black guy is seven times more likely actually to be executed than the white guy.
