How sweet it is!!
I know, it's only April, but us Sox fans have to gloat whenever we get the opportunity.
The fact is the Yankees don't suck.
They are consistantly, year after year a great team.
George Stienbrenner sucks.
He's the one that started paying players obnoxious salaries cause it was the only way he could get them to come and play in the Bronx. He openned the flood gates, and now it is next to impossible for the average family to afford to attend a game.
I was at the game on Patriots day.
My ticket was a birthday present from one of my thoughtful sons, but it was $65. A hot dog is $4.00, a beer $8.00. Bottled water $3.00. Peanuts, $4.25. Unbelievable.
Now on to more important matters.
I am guilty of doubting that the war in Iraq was about oil!
I admit it and I say I'm sorry to those of you who were more asstute than I.
I wasn't aware that there are huge deposits of light sweet crude under ground in Iraq.
I assumed that where as most of the crude that comes from the middle east is heavy sour, that Iraq's crude would surely be the same.
Turns out I was wrong.
Seems that the war may very well be about insuring that the new government of Iraq is agreeable to turning the control of the deposits over to big oil companies.
I stumbled across this this morning, from a link a picked up in a newspaper article.
Bush's Petro-Cartel Almost Has Iraq's Oil.
READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Could it be that old Muggy is trying to insure that Iraqi's don't get hosed by the big oil boys?
If this is true, George Bush and every other individual involved should be tried for war crimes, and racketeering, in Iraq, under Iraqi law.
I wonder how they'd make out?
Bush upbeat on Iraq security plan.
Say's he can see the improvement
Maybe they don't have internet in the White House.
I think the hole operation is going down the toilet.
But who the hell am I?
You be the judge.
The hell of it all is there doesn't seem to be much hope for the future.
All the Democrats want to talk about is what's wrong. They keep pointing out the faults of the republicans, but I don't think they have a plan.
It's about time they start talking about the issues.
