bad dreams

it’s one of
those days
when
I come home
and soon
hit the couch
not waking
up until
10 PM
when
I have
a nightmare
that C.
gives away
our smallest
cat Kalika
to a friend
in our building
without
saying anything
“she was annoying,”
she tells me
afterwards
I start smashing
my fists into
the walls of
the kitchen sink
crying my eyes out

I look at her
now finally awake —
my heart breaking
“daddy’s little girl”
I sometimes
call her
how proud I am
of her

I’m such a sap

joked at dinner
last night
how going to
see that movie
Two Brothers
would
“wipe me out”
I don’t like
seeing little bibbies
lives’ being
put in danger
even if it is a kid’s movie
packaged with
a happy ending

the fan is
flipping around
feeling good
spreading cheer

dad sends more
spam really
outdoing himself
this time (link bellow —
please feel free to
respond at great length)

this is a day of
bad dreams
but good comics
a connection?

Yes I know the saying goes, “Much Ado About Nothing” and unlike that
 Shakespearean play the Iraqi prisoner abuse is no comedy but it does
 involve politics of a sort.  It IS something.
 
 For good and ill, it will remain an issue.  On the one hand, right thinking
 Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions while on the other hand
 political glee will take control and fashion this minor event into some
modern day My Lai massacre.
 
 I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology.  I humbly offer mine here.
 
 I am sorry that the last seven times the Americans took up arms and
 sacrificed the blood our youth it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia,
 Kosovo, Gulf War, Kuwait, etc.) 
 
 I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after 9/11. 
 
I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Arabs. I am sorry that
Arabs have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.
 
I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.
 
I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools.
 
 I am sorry that Yasir Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and highjacked
 the Palestinian “cause.”
 
I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer more than a token
 amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.
I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial supporters
of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA.
 
I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media can’t understand any of this.
 
I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of
the”food for oil” money so they could get rich while the common folk suffered.
 
I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of  homicide bombers
upon their death.
 
I am sorry that those same bombers are seeking 72 virgins ?
I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a legitimate target.
I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs.
 
I am sorry they stopped the gang rape rooms and the filling of massgraves of
dissidents.
 
I am sorry they show so much restraint when their brothers in arms are killed.
 
I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other group.
 
I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and
return it to a terrorist state.
 
I am sorry we don’t drop few dozen DaisyCutters or MOAB’s on Fallujah.
 
I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient “Holy Site.”
 
I am sorry they didn’t apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade
Center that collapsed and severely damaged St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church – one of OUR Holy Sites.
 
I am sorry they didn’t apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the
embassy bombings, etc.
I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized village
in  Africa.
 
I am sorry the French are ? French.  Same for the Germans
 
America will get past this latest absurdity.  We will punish those responsible
because that’s what we do.  We hang out our dirty laundry or all the world
to see.  We move on.  That’s why we are hated so much.
We don’t hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now demanding
an apology.
Deep down inside when many Americans saw this reported in the news we were
like .. so what?  We lost hundreds and made fun at a few prisoners.
Sure  it was wrong, sure it dramatically hurts our cause but until captured
we were trying to kill these same prisoners.  Now we’re supposed to wring our
hands because a few were humiliated?  Our compassion is tempered with the vivid
memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a  joyous
crowd of celebrating Fallujans.
 
If you want an apology from this American your gonna have a long wait.
You have better chance of finding those 72 virgins.
 
If you are ‘sorry’ also;, pass it on.!!

my quick response: I find this piece offensive beyond words and am utterly disgusted by it. Please, please refrain from sending me any more hateful, racist, illiterate spam.

My views of the state of this country, and the world — obviously, being different than yours — honestly, don’t make me a terrorist, a liberal, or even a conservative.

I could go on and on; the gist of it is that I am anti-military, period. the military chooses to make plenty of excuses for itself (“minor event”?!?!), but when it comes down to it, it’s a death machine that steam rolls over anything in its way. if THAT is the American way, I will have nothing of it. that includes my inbox.
