funny ways to say goodbye to your ex boss

At times I wonder about my dreams. What do you think of them?

Since there's a few questions that occupy me, I decided to put them in an email and send them to the person raising them: George Junior:

Mr. Bush,

Perhaps you can enlighten me.
You see, I fail to see how starting a war (Iraq) and being in favour of people
owning guns and killing people on purpose (death penalty) and depriving 5 percent of the population of happiness simply because you disaprove of the fact that they love someone
you don't want them to love (gay rights) fits in the manual you claim to use as
you guide. Namely the bible.

You, as a christian, should know that God doesn't want you to kill people
nor asign people to do so. But still you do it and besides that make it
very easy for people to obtain guns and use them.

Would you care to explain, please?

Please anwser in such a way that I can explain to my son
that you alone may posess weapons of mass destruction
and you alone may decide over life or dead.
Something which was previously solemnly God's privelege.

Thanking you in advance for an honest answer.

D'you reckon he knows about these websites: Libertythink and Antiwar?

I always thoroughly enjoy my sons company. When we walk home from karate-class for example. We talk about the way of things like meteorites and injustice, obituaries and bikelights. His level of general knowledge can only be desribed as eerie. For his age, that is. Of course. Okay, so call me prejudiced.
Fact is I've got a wonderful son. And anyone who disagrees can be my sparring-partner at the next Pencak Silat class...;-)

John Kerry, John Edwards, Ralph Nader (yes, him again) os possibly George Junior? Who will win the 2004 presidential elections? Let's see: who's circle of family and friends has most to say in the worlds weapons trade? Which one of the candidates is most influential in the oil-industry? Who's family has most business contacts with known terrorist-networks? For those who have the answers to those questions it should not be too hard to figure out who's gonna be the next president of the US of A.

Aparrently my choice is Kucinich (who's he?). According to the test on Presidentmatch that is. Who's yours?

All over the world people still loose their lives due to malpractice. Like in Moscow. And Iran. And the Netherlands. Send detectives to disaster areas and determine who gains most from the so called "errors" made in construction and/or procedure and/or maintenance.
Than you will have found the one responsible. Than let them grovel for their sanity on nationwide television. Than hand them over to the relatives of their victims.

I've recently had the opportunity to work at this event called "Black Xion"
and the past week I had my first talk about some kids progress. But this time not as a parent. Of course several neighbours had come for tea and I've been studying and working, taking my son to school and his karate-class on mondays and doing Pencak Silat every thursday-night. There is the occasional appointment in between but nothing out of the ordinary. Then how come I feel so enormously tired?

George Junior and his pal Tony Blair have (again!) been nominated for the Nobel peace prize. That's like the Harlem Globetrotters winning the superbowl.
Yes, complete and utter nonsense. Well, not according to this extreme rightwing Norwegian politician who apparently thinks blowing up schools so the kids in it can't grow up to become terrorists is a good thing without wondering why their parents are outraged.
His name is Harald Nesvik and you can ask him why he really nominated the worlds most formost warmongers at
Here's some good arguments why The B-brothers should not be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Quite a few people don't seem to give a toss when thousands die from hunger
and/or get their limbs torn off due to some idiot who thinks producing weapons is a good idea and are outraged when they see a bare nipple on TV.
Yes, I'm referring to the nipslip-incident were Justin Timberlake (accidentely?) exposed part of a breast being part of Janet Jackson during the superbowl-show.

Where does this sense of priority come from?

Another talk about my son's progress I had at afterschool. Same story there as at school, really. Bit boring. He should, however, participate a bit more in group-activities. He's great with his sister, though. Last weekend she stayed with us and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Except for the last bit: the saying goodbye...

Of course, you might have to learn Dutch, then.
