"Internets" Senator's House Raided

Cranky, old, Alaska Republican Senator Ted Steven's house was raided today by the FBI. Its about time somebody started to look into this old loon. This is the same guy who thinks the Internets is series of tubes and wanted to build the $315 millon Bridge to Nowhere.

Vegoose 07 Initial Lineup

The initial lineup for Vegoose 2007 was announced today and I was rather disappointed compared with 05' and 06'.

I took a screenshot from the Vegoose site.



With the exception of Rage, Umphrey's, Queens of the Stone Age and Michael Franti there isn't much of a draw for me. Why in the hell would Daft Punk take second billing? Who cares about Iggy Pop?

Right now, $146.50 + fees just isn't worth it. Hopefully, future annoucements will include bands worth seeing. The 05 festival had such acts as Dave Matthews + Friends, Trey Anastasio, North Miss Allstars, moe., Gov't Mule, Jack Johnson, Phil Lesh + Friends. Even 06 had a kickass lineup (though I missed it) Phil Lesh + Trey Anastasio, Tom Petty, Keller Williams Incident, Black Crowes, The Roots, Damian Marley, G. Love, Yonder Mountain, Guster.

Enemy Friends

The article Deals in Iraq Make Friends of Enemies in todays Washington Post revists this bone-head approach that was first reported by the New York Times a month ago. The US is informally making friends with our insurgent enemies.We are now arming insurgents.

Jon Stewart of the Daily Show described it beatifully a month ago.

Its a plan so crazy, it might just be...FUCKING crazy. What are you thinking?
He broke down this catastroFUCK of a plan.
For example, Al Qaeda is our enemy.

Now the Sunni Insurgency is becoming their enemy, so Sunni Insurgency, they're our friends!

Of course the Sunni Insurgency is most responsible for the IEDs used to attack our troops making them our enemies.

And the Shii Death Squads who have been targeting Sunnis are thus our friends!

But they are controlled by Muqtada Al-Sadr and Iran who have sworn to defeat us, making them our enemies.
