Afghanistan, Iraq, we’ll move on Iran, and then we’ll invade BARCELONA….

The AP:

Finally, the questioner said, “Okay, but I’m talking about Europe – the president of Spain, would you meet with him?” The Senator offered only a slight variance to his initial comment. “I will reunite with any leader that has the same principles and philosophy that we do: human rights, democracy, and liberty. And I will confront those that don’t [have them].”

The implication seemed fairly clear: McCain was refusing to commit to meet with Zapatero, the “socialist” party leader, whose country is a member of NATO and intricately involved in many of America’s global financial and national security objectives

McCain won’t acknowledge Spain as an ally as they wouldn’t commit to the Iraq war.  What’s his response…hostility.  Can you believe that this prick says that he wants to reach across the aisles but he can’t even acknowledge a disagreement about the Iraq war with a NATO and UN ally?

I wonder if McCain has ever recovered from the trauma of being a POW.

Sen. McCain still sees the world through the prism of Vietnam. And that is one major reason why he should not be elected. His foreign policy attitude is antagonistic and military rather than diplomatic and pragmatic. Rather than thoughtful, he’s rash.

Why do people live in New York? There is no relationship between them. Except for an inner electricity which results fom the simple fact of their being crowded together. A magical sensation of contiguity and attraction for an artificial centrality. This is what makes it a self-attracting universe, which there is no reason to leave. There is no human reason to be here, except for the sheer ecstacy of being crowded together.JeanBaudrillardJean Baudrillard, America

Anxiety is sort of the opposite of ego. You’re so sure you’ll do everything wrong you’re afraid to do anything at all. It results from over motivation – leading to errors that lead to an underestimation of one’s self. Work out your anxieties on paper and read. This calms the mind.RobertM.PirsigRobert M.
