The slothful man does not roast what he took in hunting,
But diligence is man's precious possession.Proverbs 12:27
The event is a completely online protest, by email. The goal is to encourage people to email hundreds of media news desks and politicians requesting Bush's removal and investigation.
It seems almost laughable to me. I hate to break it to you, but swamping the media with email is probably not the protest wave of the future. In fact, I would venture the guess that thousands of emails in one day about removing Bush from office will probably not help the cause even with those who oppose Bush. Rather, it will make the recipients mad. I know at least for myself, getting hundreds of emails in one day with the same old info I've heard hundreds of times could get really frustrating...
...I guess, I think the event is silly, but I'm interested to see if and how the media responds to the massive influx of spam...
...the event seems to be run by the "Independent Media Center" who apparently just opened a branch here in Bellingham. After searching online I found a copy of the flier ... but with a different title here.
Oh, and I just found the one for Bellingham here.
GRAND(color) sceme of things.
One-third of the professors at an evangelical Christian college in Grand Rapids, Mich., are taking out a large ad in a local newspaper Saturday to protest President Bush's commencement speech.Pseudo-augustinian scholars pretending to be political authorities. If you think that's cracked, there's more...
"As Christians, we are called to be peacemakers and to initiate war only as a last resort," the ad will say. "We believe your administration has launched an unjust and unjustified war in Iraq."
"No single political position should be identified with God's will," says the ad, which also chastises the president for "actions that favor the wealthy of our society and burden the poor."More blanket statements that wreak of slobbering liberal, government-worshiping theology. And it gets better...
Christians are to be characterized by love and gentleness, it adds, but "we believe that your administration has fostered intolerance and divisiveness and has often failed to listen to those with whom it disagrees."
Moreover, says the letter, set to run in the Grand Rapids Press, the Bush administration's environmental policies "have harmed creation," and it asks the president "to re-examine your policies in light of our God-given duty to pursue justice with mercy."This is just funny. They may be trying to be good little liberals but they are sure doing a pathetic job of it. They are speaking in past tense, as if the environment has been damaged somehow because we rejected Kyoto and the senate passed the needed permission to drill in the frozen tundra.

(I got 75% of the questions right)
Move over Spock - I'm the new master of logic
I think rationally, clearly, and quickly.
A seasoned problem solver, my mind is like a computer!
...who is able to keep you from stumbling,I read this text the other day at a moment when I couldn't have needed it more. It was a moment where every single word was fresh and clean and cut right to the chase. A more typical scenerio is when one line of one verse really takes you by suprise... Not this time. Every single line was enough to make me stop and rest my amazed eyes.
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
