The Dog Ate My Punctuality

Sigh. Sorry folks, but I am in Finals Week for my Online Library School, so the time I would really, really, really like to spend recording angry rants, mixing songs, debunking propaganda, and sneering at the powermongers, is instead being spent writing papers, completing projects, and mildly freaking out about my papers and projects. All my shit has to be done by December 10, and then no school for like 5 weeks. Look forward to much textual and mp3 goodness at that time.

Shit, now that I’m here, I’m not going to be able to stop myself, am I?

In two bits of actual “good news” lately, we see that a) Venezuela chose to not give broad new powers to President Hugo Chavez, and b) the revelation that Iran hasn’t been working on nuclear weapons since 2003 may help drag the neocon war plans to a halt.

I’m not totally anti-Chavez; many of his policies seem honestly aimed at helping the country’s poor and historically stomped upon. But he’s also scooping up much power for himself, which is never something you want. So hooray to Venezuela for not handing it to him.

And the new US intelligence report about Iran is a nice warm ray of sunshine on an otherwise blood-drenched day. Most of the rhetoric for an American (or Israeli) invasion of Iran was based on the idea that madman Mahmoud Ahmedinejad (who isn’t actually in charge of the country) was trying to get nukes so he could load them onto the Death Star and steal the Ring from Frodo. The “new” discovery of the no nukes kind of puts a screeching-type halt into that talk. Well, until the warmongers find a new way to spin it. Which took about four and a half minutes: “they may have stopped their program in 2003, but they could start it again at ANY TIME!!!” Bush actually said that it “makes no difference” that Iran isn’t actually working on nukes. But by my calculations, even if Iran restarted their program ten minutes ago, there is a difference: four years.

So, in conclusion, I have to go write library papers.
