MORE Ruminations of the Easily Amused for September 14, 2009

14 September 2009 at 11:04:17 AM

Ready for some new directions. I majorly cleaned up part of the garage last night to uncover my arts and crafts tables. I'm planning to ramp up to make wooden toys starting in the next month or two, need to do some more organizing and figure out what saws I need, etc. I've had an interest for a very long time in automata after seeing the Kinetic Sculpture parade some years back that Dallas hosted when the West End opened. I actually have a list of all the stuff I would like to make that I've been putting off for some time. I was greatly inspired by my own family-we have a plethora of artists in the family, most of whom paint and are pretty dang good. My main vice right now is that I can easily spend a lot of time reading poltiical or other news and writing or posting about issues, but that doesn't lend itself to the devotion and time I need to produce some amazing art. (At least, I think right now it will be amazing, but perhaps only to me, but that's okay.)

Killing people via unmanned US Drones in Pakistan. Interesting that this article says Pakistan has an arrangement with the US for the US to do it, and Pakistan can deny, hoodwinking their public. I think war that allows indiscriminate killing of others via unmanned planes (thus the humanity is taking out of the equation and becomes comparable to a video game) is evil.

The United States says the missile strikes are carried out under an agreement with Islamabad that allows Pakistani leaders to decry the attacks in public.

Where are some of those Chinese Muslims who were being held in Guantanemo Bay going? Palau - Even though Toribiong has said that there was no moolah exchanged, do you believe that? I don't.

FFR Objects to Memphis City Council Prayer

Darwin film, which is being shown all over the world, can't get a US distributor. Roger Ebert.

On Czars.I hate the term. I hate it that George W Bush had czars and I hate it that Obama does too.  I think it's the media calling them that, maybe somebody Adult needs to tell the media to cut it out.

Texas Sales Tax Collections are 800 MILLION BUCKS short for this year.

Friends of the Brazos Fundraising Dinner and Auction comingup.
