    Outraged!  Oh, yes, we're all OUTRAGED!

    And we're waiting for many others, -- (what, the other 35% of the public?) -- to join us in our OUTRAGE.  That's O-U-T-R-A-G-E!

    And then -- MAYBE -- just MAYBE! -- we'll all do something with our -- are ya ready??? -- OUTRAGE!  (That's "O-U-T-R-A-G-E!", in case you missed it the first time 'round.)

    Meanwhile....

    Well, I've been outraged, for about, uh, 36 years now.  That was My Lai.  And then there was El Mozote.  And a whole lot more in between.

    Innocents by the millions, stacked like cordwood.  At someone's doorstep.

    I didn't pay for Vietnam, Abu Ghraib, or anything in between, either.

    And yes, I'm just waiting -- waiting for someone's O-U-T-R-A-G-E! to get up to that level, my level, where something might actually change around here.

    Meanwhile, I've just gotta assume that most of you are pretty well contented with having this good ol' 'Murkin Empire pullin' in that oil 'n' coffee 'n' stuff for ya.  See ya 'round -- think I might be pullin' up stakes and lightin' out for some freer territory...

    If a thousand men were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State...

    •  my money goes to (4.00)
      Tibetan orphans, the Red Cross, the environmental movement, and the antiwar movement, if you get my drift.

      Daddy, What did you do in Bush Two?

        Never was a better time to view yourself as a World Citizen, rather than being constricted by the accident of birth, and a voided Social Contract...
