uh-huh. suuuuuure you do. (look! he began a sentence with "and"!! grrrrr) It will be some poor dupe who gets sacrificed while his buddies (see previous post Welcome to 1984) go and live off everyone else's blood, sweat and tears. They may not ever be able to leave the country (which is really too bad. I WISH we could get rid of these putz's) for fear of being captured as Enemy Combatants, but I'm sure they will make do. Unless Bush really does decide to become Emperor. A little earlier in the October 17 Press conference he's asked "Q Mr. President, following up on Vladimir Putin for a moment. He said recently that next year when he has to step down, according to the constitution, as President, he may become Prime Minister, in effect keeping power and dashing any hopes for a genuine democratic transition there. Senator McCain --" and Bush replies, "I've been planning that myself. (Laughter.)"
Honestly, I think he took rather good questions and bullshitted his way through all of them even back in July. When asked, "Why shouldn't people conclude that you are either stubborn, in denial, but certainly not realistic about the strategy that you've pursued since then?" After dancing around the question, he eventually comes out with, " So I've been realistic about the consequences of failure. I have been realistic about what needs to happen on the ground in order for there to be success. And it's been hard work, and the American people see this hard work. And one of the reasons it is hard work is because on our TV screens are these violent killings, perpetuated by people who have done us harm in the past. "
Come on, just answer the damn questions. quit hedging on them or pulling a whiplash change of subject. Sheesh. And would someone please remind him that Iraq had NOTHING TO DO with 9/11. Whenever something happens and any of the Politicos start losing ground in a press conference, they always trot out the "9/11 event" See this hand? Look at it. Don't look at what I'm really saying or avoiding a discussion about.
I really hope not. *sigh*
I'm bloody, rather upset (both sad and very angry) and not sure what to do.
For some reason, something wigged Halfnhalf out and a couple hours ago I just had a repeat of the bulldozing ball of cat. Except this time it was far worse. Halfnhalf was so freaked out that she defecated everywhere as she was bouncing off walls, windows, furniture, you name it. God the smell was nasty. I get them separated and then it just happens again except this time I got a hold of Halfnhalf, trying to hold on to her so that I could put her in a bathroom to 'cool down'. She ended up slashing my left arm and my right hand pretty well with her claws. As I struggle to hold a screaming and hissing Halfnhalf away from my body by her armpits while getting cut to ribbons, Havoc is on the ground growling and then starts to climb my leg to get to her daughter, eventually sinking a fang in my right knee.
*sigh* This is not good. Not good at all. They're both now in separate bathrooms, each with food, water and a clean litter box. Havoc has started crying. Halfnhalf is usually very quiet (she even make these really cute silent meows at times) so I don't know what she's doing.
