Facebooks of Memorial Day weekend

April 15 should be a day of national celebration. It’s the day we come together to implement and pay for the programs we want. So why is it instead a day of mourning? — The thoughts of Noam Chomsky speaking at Pace University in New York City replayed on the program Democracy NOW!

Alright! Gonna set off a boatload of fireworks from gay Fresno and play my Sousa’s Greatest Marches CD!
What? I can be patriotic if I want!

Let me guess. It was Anderson Cooper.

I love everything French. French vanilla, French healthcare, french bread, French wine, French cheese…

Video from IDF’s (“Israel” defense force) channel on YouTube!

First of all, you can’t tell who is doing what – second, the “State of Israel” is the aggressor. Third, get off our damn boat!
…the Israeli military had completed a search of the ship and “no weapons discovered except for the two pistols that were taken from the soldiers.” http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/31/echoes-of-raid-on-exodus-ship-in-1947/

It’s May 31, 2010, a year well on its way to being hottest year on record so far for global climate. Hot, no measurable precip, with dry lightning is the forecast for Alaska, but the village of Tanacross was indeed saved, thanks to an old firebreak put in years before. Those are real handy! So are old/previous burns. So the next time you see an old burn, appreciate it! Lots of news going on – so Alaska having wildfires in May is sort of off the front page…

All these commercials on TV today are assuring me so-and-so is a conservative and warning me the other so-and-so is “more liberal than you’ve been led to believe.” They’re barking up the wrong tree. The conservative noise pollution (CNP) has always been horrible in Fresno.
I’m seein’ pee oops I mean it’s CNP!

“Pay it forward today for a random person. U just may make their day.” –Casey Olson, ultimate fighter from Fresno. Generosity may vary – I like doing it at the coffee machine!

The bull was not hailed as the victor and crowned in laurels — he was executed. I thought the bull would at least be given a parade. Isn’t that what victors get?
See the gory YouTube of this ugly Matador getting his just desserts for torturing this beautiful animal with dozens of spears and teasing and taunting it with brightly colored cloth.

LINK: Israel Attacks Palestinian Aid Flotilla, According To Reports (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/30/israel-attacks-palestinian-aid-flotilla_n_595033.html)
Shameless bastards. You know that when anyone in Gaza tries to go out from the beach to fish or swim, the Israeli gunboats shell them, announcing on loudspeakers they control the water and there’s no swimming or fishing allowed.

It’s Manny Time! struck out. at least this time he held his at-bat for some 5 minutes, made that pitcher work for it. Furcal struck out right after him, at-bat for about 45 seconds. The guy just at bat for the Rockies, his name was Fowler. He hit two fowls then fowled out. Everybody, meet the newest Dodger, Xavier Paul. He just made SportsCenter. 9th inning, winning run brought to plate by Casey Blake error, now Dodgers lead all of MLB in errors. Diving stop by Carrol saves the game! But Broxton still in trouble with one out left to get. 4-3 Dodger lead being held. Carroll!! Rockies make the mistake of hitting to Carroll again! I have become a big Carrol fan. What a game!! 3 errors, though. C’mon Blue!

This incident happened just before the boat incident:
Israeli Heckler Calls Rahm Emanuel “Anti-Semite” – Political Hotsheet – CBS News http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20006107-503544.html
Ooo, anti-Sem. You’re either with us or you’re with the Nazis. So that’s it. The war on terror, the 9/11 attacks – is nothing but the Great Patriotic War (the Soviet name for World War II) continued. Augh, war is so sickening. Free Palestine.

WOW!!
Roy Halladay PERFECT GAME: Philly Throws 20th In MLB History
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/29/roy-halladay-perfect-game_n_594598.html
The pitcher with a perfect game in him is a special one, as is the team he was on that helped make it happen. I love my Dodgers, but those ball bobblers and droppers are a pitcher’s worst nightmare right now! Good for the Phils. What an achievement.
