Sorry, but I’m not here…

July 20, 2006

I’ve been trying do delete this blog for a couple of weeks now, but wordpress seems to be ignoring me. If you’re interested in anything you see here, please come over to this site, which is regularly updated. I won’t likely be updating this site again.

Deja Vu All Over Again…

July 10, 2006

Well, I guess this is how it begins. Japanese government officials are discussing ways to better defend the country, including setting up the legal framework to allow Tokyo to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korean missile sites.

“If we accept that there is no other option to prevent an attack … there is the view that attacking the launch base of the guided missiles is within the constitutional right of self-defense. We need to deepen discussion,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Shinzo Abe said.

Now, anyone who reads this blog knows that I’m no fan of North Korea. Nor am I especially fond of Japan’s weak-in-the-knees constitution. I don’t, however, believe that the Japanese government should be seriously considering making an end run around Article 9 with a pre-emptive attack on their minds. If the Japanese people want to change their constitution through a legal referendum (to my knowledge the only constitutionally legal method), that’s one thing. It’s quite another for the government to embark on a path of ‘creative interpretation’ and by-pass the people altogether.

It’s easier than writing…

Found this quite by accident. It was stupid enough to make me laugh…

Fight the Future

OK. Now, if this is gonna make any sense to whomever is reading this, the first thing ya gotta do is go over to Multi Medium and check out a pic with the caption “Orange wall with thingy.” I was over there myself earlier today and saw the pic in question, and didn’t think anything of it until later, when I happened to drop by Loser’s Guide and saw an eerily familiar looking object in an article called “The Truth Is Right Here.” It doesn’t end there, people. I took the picture you’re looking at right now with my cell phone (sorry for the poor quality). Look closely and you should recognize this object. Yes!! It’s the same object! And do you know where I saw it? It was hovering over a rugby field in back of my condo!! The glare is from the field’s lights, but this is clearly the same object. They’ll never take me alive…

The Japanese workplace…

…can be a little dangerous sometimes. (Go ahead and click, it’s less than 30 seconds!)

I’ve had days like that…
