"Everything for oil"

"By Erica Gies

As we engage in yet another war in the Middle East (the Gulf War, Somalia), some of us turn up the volume on our questions regarding our dependence on foreign oil. While this particular conflict has a huge, extenuating circumstance (Sept. 11), questioning our government's never-ending support for oil contributes to our growth as individuals and as a nation.

In light of the war profiteering bill in which poor, hurting global megacorporations will not only receive billions of dollars in tax cuts, they will actually be paid back their past 15 years of taxes currently winding its way through Congress, various high-profile Americans have been talking about our country's addiction to oil. They are asking us not to allow our government to increase corporate welfare, especially for the oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear industries, in the name of our national state of affairs."

more pointless test thingies

I am 20% EMO.

Anti-Emo
Okay... so I'm not emo at all.. I am probably not even goth, because goths are just messed up emo kids... I am probably a metal head... or into boy bands...

WTF is EMO anyway?


I am 24% Grunge.

I will get out of your sight. I'm pathetic! With my clean clothes, and nice smell. I think I took the wrong test, thank god, huh?

Somehow this pleases me.


I am 20% Raver.

Have I even been to a rave? I'll go home. Loser. I suck. Actually, I am probably just a normal person taking this test and don't know why.

Um, ok. I don't like E or pacifiers anyway. :o)



LOL I love this one.

squeek, go for the eyes, boo

Welcome to Grand Central Station

I don't know why but all day long stray cats have passing by the apartment, either lounging around out on the lawn sunning themselves or looking by the flower pots for something to drink. Yes, Blanca and two of her kittens came by and boy have they gotten big now, but are still cute lil things. Hey Afi, wanna kitten? I'll mail one to you. :o)
