Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Just gonna keep it simple, today.

That seems like something that is missing from my life right now: simplicity. Of course, that’s not going to change any time in the very near future, so long as SSG Dizzy is still doing the Iraq Deployment Shuffle.

Thankfully, I have music to keep me connected to my spiritual self. And, after two nights of listening to hard rock and hip-hop, it’s nice to settle down, the rest of the week, with some contemporary R&B and Neo-Soul.

I definitely need to go pick up a couple of new R&B CDs to add to my music collection. It’s inspiring to note that Chaka Khan has been making records (and looking like a “Bad Mamma Jamma”) for more than 30 years: Chaka Khan – Love You All My Lifetime. I hope I look nearly as good as she does when I hit my 50s…

For better or worse, there is very little that’s simple in today’s Ten Post Round-Up:

1: First, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using his music at campaign stops. Now, Huckabee gets called out…

2: Russia is calling “foul” on US plans to shoot down falling spy satellite…

3: GWB is up to his usual tricks. It’s as if Congress (and the US Constitution) don’t even exist…

4: Are GWBs eyes brown? Pull up your hip-waders, folks…

5: Some good news for AIDS programs in Africa…

6: Sadly, there is no good news about the economy…

7: Yes, Virginia, there are gay Republicans. But, will they endorse McCain?…

8: Trying to get smokers to quit…one piece of red tape, at a time…

9: GWB and the wiretapping law: Much ado about nothin’…

Experts: FISA will suffice as PAA expiresThink Progress

10: Umm…this isn’t good…

Some days, I wish I lived in a GWB-style bubble, so I could pretend that life was still good despite the chaos that surrounds me. But, I find little joy in my own personal success, knowing so many people are suffering because of what our country’s leaders have been doing to us, lo, these past several years.

338 days until the end of an error…

Peace.

(Apparently, life is best lived in an oblivious bubble…)
