New SUV in the future?



Okay, as you've read the Suburban needs a new heart (engine) and I think it's about done. It's a 1993 so it's seen better days. It's going to cost about 2 grand to put in a new one so that'might be the deal breaker right there. I just bought the Honda Prelude and I love that it takes on $30 to fill it up. I want an SUV (to tow the boat) but I don't want anything nearly that big ( $120.00 to fill it up) and I really want to stay away from American vehicles. I know, I know... Buy American, but I've had nothing but trouble with Detroit cars. I'm thinking about getting the vehicle you see here. It's all-wheel drive, stylish, and made by Mercedes. But now that Chrysler is part of Benz I don't know... But I'm sure Benz won't even let Chrysler employees VISIT the plants where they make their cars, so I'm going to trust it. If things go right I might have it by Christmas or February at the latest. Right now it costs about $12-15K for a nice one so I'll see what I can come up with. It's 3:30 am so I need to get to bed so I can (finally) make church in the morning. Later.

SOOOOOO... What's going on in Bushworld? Hows Condolezza (mammy) Rice doing?


That's one EVIL Bitch! Somebody really needs to get laid! Anyway, on to the news!

First, the Republicans have started to take the prospect of Condi Rice running for president in '08 seriously. So what do they do? They turn on her like the snakes they are. NOOOO way can we have a little black pickaninny run for the highest office in the land that is exclusively reserved for white men. Especially if she were to run against Hillary. Those old white men would croak. Here is the latest article from ABC news about Condi's woes within the party.

WASHINGTON Feb 15, 2006 (AP)— The Bush administration will "walk a fine line" in seeking punitive international sanctions against Iran's Islamic government over its disputed nuclear program, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday.
The Bush administration's top diplomat detailed a two-track approach to Iran concerted international pressure to deter Tehran from building a bomb, and a newly robust attempt to seed democratic change inside the country with $75 million for broadcasts and aid to dissidents.
Even so, Rice ran into tough questions from lawmakers of both parties on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee over Iran, Iraq and the Palestinians, underscoring congressional worries about administration policies throughout the Middle East.
"I don't see, Madame Secretary, how things are getting better. I think things are getting worse. I think they're getting worse in Iraq. I think they're getting worse in Iran," said Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.
"Opportunities missed," said moderate GOP Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, referring to the slow-moving Mideast peace process and the recent Palestinian election triumph of Hamas, the militant group. "Now we have a very, very disastrous situation of a terrorist organization winning elections."

So, condemn Condi for Bush's fuck ups and let Bush go free. Why did we go to Iraq again? There are 100 civilians being killed in Iraq everyday in a civil war we helped start. That's equivilent to one 9/11 tragedy every month. Every 30 days!!! And we wonder why the arabs and Muslims hate us. And Bush's strategy? "Stay the course". The course is fucked up and we need to get the hell out of there ASAP. More later.

London Blogging!


I'm going to miss my trip to London because the engine in the suburban decided it wanted to die on me. Sorry Jason, I'll holla at you back in NY in a few months.

Clinton Economy Versus Bush Economy


Just heard a speech where Bush said the economy is strong. Where? These people just say something even if the facts don't support what they say, and then they won't take any questions on the lies they just told. Unbelievable. Anyway, check out the graphic for yourself.
