I guess he's just resting before he goes out and prowls the neighborhood. LOL. He's not actually as fat as he looks, honest, he's mostly fluffy :-) Does he remind you of any famous cats you can think of?
I was reading some articles and comments on gather.com last night, or was it this morning? Anyway, the argument was about whether "the Jews" (Israel) were the bad guys, or if "the Muslims" (Palestine/Hummas) were. As I was reading the comments, I couldn't help but wonder if the commenters really believed that each country's "leaders" really represent ALL "the people" of that country. If they do, I think they're badly mistaken. I'm sure a lot of people in the the united States believe that G.W. Bush represents "the Christians". I just don't believe it wise to paint 'the people' of any country with such a large brush by saying any particular leader's religion actually represents all the people of the entire country. In other words, I think it's wrong to judge any religion just because the leader of whatever country is committing war and/or war crimes.
Speaking of G.W. Bush, I just found out about this...
blockquote text A bill was signed last week that authorizes martial law.
In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Commutates Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.
Public Law 109-364, or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."
