Judge: School Pledge Is Unconstitutional -

Judge: School Pledge Is Unconstitutional - Yahoo! News: "The case was brought by the same atheist whose previous battle against the words 'under God' was rejected last year by the Supreme Court on procedural grounds.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge's reference to one nation 'under God' violates school children's right to be 'free from a coercive requirement to affirm God.'"

Oh thank God, er...I mean..

Exxon's $10B fill-up:

Exxon's $10B fill-up: Cashing in on crunch#hahahaha

"Oil companies came under new fire yesterday when it emerged that ExxonMobil's profits are likely to soar above $10 billion this quarter on the back of the fuel crisis.

That's $110 million a day, and more net income than any company has ever made in a quarter. It's also a stunning 69 percent increase over the same period a year ago and a 34 percent jump from the $7.6 billion Exxon made just last quarter."

Well, at least we know there is no price gouging! Let's just make Exxon pay for New Orleans reconstruction.

Army engages in Urban warfare in New Orleans

Army Times - News - More News: "I never thought that at a National Guardsman I would be shot at by other Americans,"said Spc. Philip Baccus of the 527th Engineer Battalion. "And I never thought I'd have to carry a rifle when on a hurricane relief mission. This is a disgrace."

I never thought that I would hear American National Guard commanders say:

“This place is going to look like Little Somalia...This will be a combat operation to get this city under control.”

I am not sure who I am mad at more, the few crazy looters or the fuckers who think they need to invade an American city.

Humans aren't so bad after all.

The Chronicle: 8/12/2005: Red in Tooth, Claw, and Trigger Finger: " According to Edward O. Wilson, America's supreme ant-ologist, 'alongside ants, which conduct assassinations, skirmishes, and pitched battles as routine business, men are all but tranquilized pacifists.' In their great tome of ant lore, Wilson and Bert H�lldobler concluded that ants are 'arguably the most aggressive and warlike of all animals. They far exceed human beings in organized nastiness; our species is by comparison gentle and sweet-tempered.' The ant lifestyle is characterized, note the authors, by 'restless aggression, territorial conquest, and genocidal annihilation of neighboring colonies whenever possible. If ants had nuclear weapons, they would probably end the world in a week.'"
