BooksPeople keep asking for books sooooo here is a couple. Best book ever written by an American Author; Sophie’s Choice by William Styron. The man has an unmatched mastery of the English language. A mind-altering tragedy on the most epic of scales while consistently maintaining the most personal and isolated connection I’ve ever felt in any piece of literature. A book that redefined the depths and heights of the human condition. A book that redefined the existence of true evil in it’s purest form… a form of disimpassioned, monotony, and inaction… an evil without the simplistic brushstrokes of romanticized villains and Hollywood grandeur. This book is what books should me. This book is what art should be. An undeniable idea-philosophy-story-picture brought into your life that is so powerful, you have no choice but to redefine perspective accordingly. Thomas Mann – The Magic Mountain: 700 pages of obsession with a woman dying, stealing her x-rays describing the way her fingers bend as she smokes a cigarette. Comes to a astonish crescendo as he gets drunk and literally gushes the perfect blend of love, death, obsession, depravity, and hopeless bourgeois magic. Ayn Rand – The Fountainhead: Dominique Francon might be my favorite female character ever developed. Tom Robbins – Still life with Woodpecker: Best schizophrenic love story ever written. Kurt Vonnegut – Slaughter House Five: So it goes. Fire bombing of Dresden as only Vonnegut could tell. Milton – Paradise Lost: Never recovered from that one. John Kennedy Toole – Confederacy of Dunces: Pure fantastic entertainment Salinger – For Esme’ with love and Squalor: I would like to think I’ve moved past my Holden Caulfield period. Dostoevsky – The Grand Inquisitor: Think about it…true right? We would to. Morrison – Song of Solomon: her best Augusten Burroughs – Running with Scissors (the movie sucked!) Pigs at the Trough - Those fuckers!!! Ethics legislation reform!!! Lobbyists should be banished (Exxon mobile 39.5 billions dollars profit last year?!?!?!?) I can't even breathe...i had to set this book down soo many times. Early Bukowski – My god, my god. This guy lived it. Blood Diamonds - Greg Campbell. I will never buy a diamond as long a i live. Because of the impossibility of determining whether or not it's a conflict diamond; a diamond with the blood of 1000's of women and children at the hands of Sierra Leone's RUF's, a diamond that helped fund the liquidation of 100's of millions of dollars for Al Qaeda 2 months prior to 9/11. Devil in the White City: Read is straight through. Perfect blend of fiction and history. Thoreau – Walden: Helped shape my youth and absolute need for solitude and solo travel. Richard Wright – Uncle Tom’s Children: Gave Native Son a run for it’s money. Suite Francaise - Irene Nemirovsky...Died during the nazi occupation of France. Her manuscripts were found 60 years and later and a fucking masterpiece was translated...layers of French Society in a brilliant transformation that reveals our true nature in the midst of defeat, compromise, and hypocrisy. Artificial nobility lost...love, hope, and a natural nobility found. Anything on Neo-Cons, Imperial Hubris, Foreign Policy, Fanatics or fundamental anything…Halliburton, Oil for food embargos, Nigerian Delta attacks, Chechnya, Janjiweed, Blood diamonds, African infrastructure, capitalistic tyranny.. this could go on for hours…more later
HeroesBarack Obama.....get to know me!! It's about time to get that retarded monkey out of office and get this cat in. and i motherfuckin' quote... "Mr. President, in October of 2002, I delivered a speech opposing the War in Iraq. I said that Saddam Hussein was a ruthless man, but that he posed no imminent and direct threat to the United States. I said that a war in Iraq would take our focus away from our efforts to defeat al-Qaeda. And, with a volatile mix of ethnic groups and a complicated history, I said that the invasion and occupation of Iraq would require a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. In short, I felt the decision unfolding then to invade Iraq was being made without a clear rationale, based more on ideology and politics than fact and reason. It is with no great pleasure that I recall this now. Too many young men and women have died. Too many have been maimed. Too many hearts have been broken. I fervently wish I had been wrong about this war; that my concerns had been unfounded. America and the American people have paid a high price for the decision to invade Iraq and myriad mistakes that followed. I believe that history will not judge the authors of this war kindly. For all these reasons, I would like nothing more than to support the Kerry Amendment; to bring our brave troops home on a date certain, and spare the American people more pain, suffering and sorrow. But having visited Iraq, I'm also acutely aware that a precipitous withdrawal of our troops, driven by Congressional edict rather than the realities on the ground, will not undo the mistakes made by this Administration. It could compound them. It could compound them by plunging Iraq into an even deeper and, perhaps, irreparable crisis. We must exit Iraq, but not in a way that leaves behind a security vacuum filled with terrorism, chaos, ethnic cleansing and genocide that could engulf large swaths of the Middle East and endanger America. We have both moral and national security reasons to manage our exit in a responsible way. I share many of the goals set forth in the Kerry Amendment. We should send a clear message to the Iraqis that we won't be there forever, and that by next year our primary role should be to conduct counter-insurgency actions, train Iraqi security forces, and provide needed logistical support. Moreover, I share the frustration with an Administration whose policies with respect to Iraq seem to simply repeat the simple-minded refrains of "we know best" and "stay the course." It's not acceptable to conduct a war where our goals and strategies drift aimlessly regardless of the cost in lives or dollars spent, and where we end up with arbitrary, poll-driven troop reductions by the Administration - the worst of all possible outcomes. As one who strongly opposed the decision to go to war and who has met with servicemen and women injured in this conflict and seen the pain of the parents and loved ones of those who have died in Iraq, I would like nothing more than for our military involvement to end. But I do not believe that setting a date certain for the total withdrawal of U.S. troops is the best approach to achieving, in a methodical and responsible way, the three basic goals that should drive our Iraq policy: that is, 1) stabilizing Iraq and giving the factions within Iraq the space they need to forge a political settlement; 2) containing and ultimately defeating the insurgency in Iraq; and 3) bringing our troops safely home. What is needed is a blueprint for an expeditious yet responsible exit from Iraq. A hard and fast, arbitrary deadline for withdrawal offers our commanders in the field, and our diplomats in the region, insufficient flexibility to implement that strategy. For example, let's say that a phased withdrawal results in fifty thousand troops in Iraq by July 19, 2007. If, at that point, our generals and the Iraqi government tell us that having those troops in Iraq for an additional three or six months would enhance stability and security in the region, this amendment would potentially prevent us from pursuing the optimal policy. It is for this reason that I cannot support the Kerry Amendment. Instead, I am a cosponsor of the Levin amendment, which gives us the best opportunity to find this balance between our need to begin a phase-down and our need to help stabilize Iraq. It tells the Iraqis that we won't be there forever so that they need to move forward on uniting and securing their country. I agree with Senator Warner that the message should be "we really mean business, Iraqis, get on with it." At the same time, the amendment also provides the Iraqis the time and the opportunity to accomplish this critical goal. Essential to a successful policy is the Administration listening to its generals and diplomats and members of Congress - especially those who disagree with their policies and believe it is time to start bringing our troops home. The overwhelming majority of the Senate is already on record voting for an amendment stating that calendar year 2006 should be a period of significant transition to full Iraqi sovereignty, with Iraqi security forces taking the lead for the security, creating the conditions for the phased redeployment of United States forces from Iraq. The Levin Amendment builds on this approach. The White House should follow this principle as well. Visiting Iraq for a few hours cannot resuscitate or justify a failed policy. No amount of spin or photo opportunities can change the bottom line: this war has been poorly conceived and poorly managed by the White House, and that is why it has been so poorly received by the American people.. And it's troubling to already see Karl Rove in New Hampshire, treating this as a political attack opportunity instead of a major national challenge around which to rally the country. There are no easy answers to this war. I understand that many Americans want to see our troops come home. The chaos, violence, and horrors in Iraq are gut-wrenching reminders of what our men and women in uniform, some just months out of high school, must confront on a daily basis. They are doing this heroically, they are doing this selflessly, and more than 2,500 of them have now made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Not one of us wants to see our servicemen and women in harm's way a day longer than they have to be. And that's why we must find the most responsible way to bring them home as quickly as possible, while still leaving the foundation of a secure Iraq that will not endanger the free world." --end motherfucking quote.

Who I'd like to meet:Jennifer Eccleston CNN reporter that reports live from wherever bombs are going off. She’s got a consortium degree in politics and philosophy and a masters in comparative European governments. This stone cold fox was reporting live in Iraq for CNN on the bridge stampede in September 2005 where nearly a thousand Shia Muslims died in Baghdad during a religious festival. She also is the journalist that spent two weeks embedded with the US Marines, chasing insurgents in the western Al Anbar province. Come now, seriously. That might be the sexiest thing I have ever heard. I’d be worthless. I’d ask her on a date to the Getty and she’d kung fu chop me with her mind.
