Well today was a national holiday -- nay, THE national holiday, and I spent it alone. Like I probably will next year. I'm fucking depressing myself.

Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event

I just remember when I was a senior and I made the last minute decision to go to prom and damn it doesn't matter, but my friend had been talking about a campaign to get them to play this song at prom, by one of our favorite bands Relient K. This was... well it was back when I knew them primarily as Christian artists, but they'd started to take the turn towards mainstream. Anyway. This song reminds me of the prom that wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

I wonder if I took the time to tally the number of users who hate the new LJ profile page (being one of them) as seen in [livejournal.com profile] news and [livejournal.com profile] lj_design, and found it to be something approaching a percentage of their users, they would listen.

I doubt it.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that Obama's middle name – Hussein – is relevant to the public discourse surrounding his candidacy, saying in March that if Obama were elected, "Then the radical Islamists, the al Qaeda, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they will declare victory in this War on Terror." -- Here

On behalf of all of Iowa... I'm sorry. He's not from my district, so I really can't do anything about it except apologise profusely for this batshittery. Which I will continue to do.

You know, every year I sit in front of my house for the Fourth of July parade and watch 30 fire trucks, the high school marching band, Clinton county Democrats and Republicans, sundry pageant queens, Pro-life marchers, the Twirl-N-Talent Bitch Brigade (better known as the Dynamite competition team), and a lawn chair corps as they walk by, and I just realize how horribly pathetically small my town truly is.

Happy Independence Day, Americans. Exercise your rights and privileges.

In the meanwhile, I go to Heather's on Monday and I haven't even though about packing.

Packing = clothes = the bar in my closet that holds all of the my clothes has broken. Having nowhere to put my clothes, they are laying on my bed leaving me to sleep on the couch. Jeez.

Now if THIS is not the most brilliant thing I have ever heard/seen, then I don't know what is.

There really is nothing exciting going on in my life.

Rachel's having a birthday party I wasn't invited to. Joe's not having a party (too bad, he's getting his t-shirt anyway), and I had to drop my Lord of the Rings review for speech because it was just not fitting together at all.

Mother has informed me that I have to get a date for prom since I got a dress and I get a TIARA. How freaking awesome is that? But, a date. I NEED. :-X Right, I'll just call BOYS 'R US and pick me out a tall, dark, and handsome one.


Oh yes. And I don't even have the words to express my dismay in Bush at the present. 'ARGH' comes to mind.

EDIT: And I turned in a job application to the movie rental place here in town, because I need money.

I hate writing this admissions essay. How do I write about what I would do as president without totally trashing the Bush administration? >_

With any luck, this means we won't be subjected to anymore Ah-nold flicks for awhile. Huzzah!

Please don't seriously tell me that the headline on today's Quad City Times was "Bush pushes for new nuclear weapons".

Although I must commend the editorial cartoon for today. "I'm worried about Rumsfield... Iraq's been without electricity for months, but he insists he sees a light at the end of the tunnel!"

I woke up this morning, figured, "Hey, what's a better American pastime than buying votes or kicking around minorities?" and watched the Gangs of New York.

...Now, tell me again, who won against Daniel Day-Lewis? That was a fucking amazing film, I can't believe Chicago won over that.

I'm sick of being a lunatic over Joe (yeah, saw him marching in the parade today, and practically burst into tears, can you tell?). I'm just going to write a letter saying everything and letting that be that. Because we know how I feel about phones vs. the written or spoken word.

[livejournal.com profile] dmp rocks my socks so hard.

And, Americans, happy fourth! Be a patriot from the heart, not from the wallet.

Oh how I do despise being considered uneducated and ignorant for my [livejournal.com profile] antiwar views.

Write your congressman/woman and ask them to veto it, please. Not everyone is a Christian, I know understand that, but the fellow Christians on my friends list... we are called to pray for peace.

The letter I sent my congresspeople, use it if you want or write your own. )

Tomorrow is supposed to be "Red, White, and Blue day, to support our troops!"

I don't think I can do it, even with my "hate the war, not the warrior" mentality.

EDIT: Of course there are more countries in the coalition. Between Bush bullying them into it and them thinking it would be prudent to get a stake in the Iraqi oil fields. Idiots.

EDIT 2: Apparently the press underestimates the intelligence of the U.S. public. Or maybe they're overestimating, who can really tell sometimes?

I just posted this as a reply in [livejournal.com profile] lotricons to someone's entry, and I'm like, "Wow, that was good..."

[Bad username or site: I am tired. @ livejournal.com]I am growing quite tired of not only politics, but being called communist, socialist, un-American, a tree-hugging baby-killing liberal, among other things by my countrymen. I am also tired of being looked down upon in general by people from other countries because a president I did not vote for is in power and doing some very, very unpopular things. I am hoping that once Bush gets his Power Wank that this will be over, we can vote him out in 2004, and all will be well.

I am an American, and I have faith that true democracy will be restored once again and America will be the "Home of the Brave" rather than "Home of the Hypocrites". I have faith that one day the first amendment will apply to everyone again, and not just the people going out and being "Pro-War" and "Pro-Bush", carrying signs that read "Give WAR a chance" and pouring out French champagne in the street. I have faith that one day, America will fulfill the promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" and not "life for me and my family, liberty for the politicians who support me, and the pursuit of happiness for everyone who is a right winged conservative Republican".

See, I am proud of what America once was and could be again. I am not proud to be associated with the current America that is self-serving, and greedy. If loving my neighbor and praying, hoping, and wishing for peace by God's will makes me un-American, then so be it.

My friend has informed me that her boyfriend in Chicago recently turned eighteen and received a letter saying he might have to register for the draft, starting with "We know you are not a United States citizen, but..." (he's from Poland).

I'd ask what this world is coming to, but I think I already know the answer to that.

In other news, I seem to be cursed to like people who are my friends. >< I hate myself sometimes.

Oh my virgin body.

On behalf of the entire DECENT population of the United States of America, I would like to apologize to all of you non-United Statesians. We are not all this arrogant and moronic. We just put those kinds of people in charge.

I should be like Eugene V. Debs... he ran for president something like five times and never got any electoral votes. He even ran from jail once.

May it never be said that I don't love these guys.

It takes a lot of courage to join armed forces and fight for your country.

It also takes a lot of courage to fight against your country with no weapons in your hands.

Taking a stand against the evils abroad takes bravery.

Taking a stand against the evils at home also takes bravery.

Here's to the veterans of wars long past, who were brave enough to leave their home and family to an uncertain future in an unknown land.

Here's to the veterans of peace, who were brave enough to love peace in wartime and not embrace violence even if their belief was not a popular one.

Thanks to the people who do the shooting.

Thanks to the people who are met with shooting.

And here's a question for you: if veterans, "don't want other young people to know the Hell that is war," then why are so many that I know supporting Bush and his war in Iraq? (I'm not saying all are, but all the ones I talked to today said they support it.)
