Bush Orders Anti-War Americans To Wear Yellow Stars
WASHINGTON - President Bush today passed an emergency decree to force Americans opposed to the impending war with Iraq to wear yellow stars. The new law passed in response to the arrests of Roger and Stephen Downs was a direct attempt by the President to "flush out the yellow anti-war cowards."

"The President has been considering a move to highlight those citizens with anti-patriotic views for some time." Spokesman Ari Fleischer told us. "You see these yellow-backs going to work every day. They are construction workers, teachers, managers, they could be anybody and yet they harbour dangerous anti-American views. It is time we showed them for who they really are. There is no hiding place for this scum now. Who do these men think they are strolling through a shopping mall with offensive statements on their t-shirts?"

The new law, effective from tomorrow in parallel with a similar move in the UK will be implemented following a simple door-to-door question poll. Each American will be asked to respond with a "Yes" or "No" to one simple, balanced question. Although Bush administration has refused to release the full details of the "Friend or Foe" question, leaked documents today suggest it will be as follows:

"Do you think we should bomb the shit out of Iraq and pay for our efforts by taking control of Iraq's oil fields for the good of the Iraqi people?"

Although refusing to confirm or deny the contents of the question, the President reiterated the importance of all Americans adopting a common stance.

"We need to find those who are abusing our freedom of speech laws to further their own agenda and ensure that our loyal, God-fearing citizens know who are the rats in their communities. So they want little message of 'peace' on their t-shirts? Well now we will all now where they stand." The President said, spitting on the ground.

"It is an insult to call these people American." The President continued. "The yellow star will highlight their cowardice and how they betray the stars and stripes of this mighty nation. These people make me sick. They are not worthy of free expression. Freedom of speech was never intended to become a tool to undermine the government."

Civil Liberties groups refused to comment on the new law but promised to share their full anger once they had finished dealing with the arson attacks on their offices across the U.S.

Mood: okay

i think im doing 'the moon is down' by further seems forever as the song for my talk.
i really like it and it reminds me of enders game. "remember the enemys gate is down"

The moon is down,
and heaven is waiting
for us to find her in our sites
with focus that's strong
but my strength keeps slipping.

Now we're all the terminal cases,
but were so determined to thrive.
And those with defeat on their faces,
are those that we must keep alive.
And I admire your strength.
You keep us going on.
You keep us fighting long after the fire.

You've measured our strides,
marked the degree of our fever.
Charted the log.
Made sure the temperature's rising.

To fan the flames,
and brandish our new courage proudly,
as if it were ours from the outset.
As if we were never alone.

The moon is down,
and heaven is waiting,
for callers and entries
as we're calling out:
"This is ours, ours, ours. This one is ours!"

Now we're all the terminal cases,
but we're so determined to thrive.
And those with defeat on their faces,
are those that we must keep alive.
And I admire your strength,
you keep us going on,
you keep us fighting,
long after the fire.

i got up at 10 today cause i had to go recruiting for the antioch weekend at eleven and i wanted to shower. so i wake up and there a strange man in the kitchen. its the electrician whos shut off all the power, which = no shower. thats fine.
so i go back to bed, wake up and go to holy name. im about 15 minutes late, no biggie. there are three people there. we call some people and eventually leigh sarah marybeth and tim show up. we run back to my house to get applications and then its off to recruit. i end up with leigh and everyone because my other choice was with those freaky siblings.
we drive around till about 2. we only got like 4 people.

we went to friendlys for dinner tonight. why? because we went out to dinner when i got scholarships to all the highschools i applied to so since brad got into two out of three schools he gets too go out too.

my caculator broke. you know, the $85 one i need for my math final on monday.

"i guess you could say we broke up because of artisic differences. he saw himself as alive and i saw him dead"

Greetings friends (and by friends I mean everyone but Americans)! BKW has long been accused of being too pro-American and in order to refute these scandalous charges we've decided to write a "Guide to Anti-Americanism." If you've ever wanted to fit in at European Dinner Parties, Anti-globalism protests, or at a Harvard faculty meeting this is an article you must read!

When in Doubt, Blame America: Since America is the root of all evil, you can be assured that every bad thing that happens in your life is the result of something America did. So for example, in the Winter Olympics when a French ice skating judge conspired with a Russian judge to cheat a pair of Canadian skaters out of a gold medal it made perfect sense that the Russians blamed America. Even if America wasn't directly responsible for everything that happened, they deserve to be blamed because they're bad, bad, people!

Treat America like a Communist Dictatorship: All good Anti-Americans understand that the American government is to blame for America's actions, not the American people despite the fact that the American people vote in the government. Furthermore, we understand that despite the fact that American newspapers, TV, and radio claim to be independent, the government secretly controls them all in order to convince stupid Americans to carry guns, vote for the death penalty, and to loathe berets.

You Should Visit America Once in Your Life: Now I know you're thinking "why would I want to visit America? There's nothing there but a bunch of fat, ignorant, hillbillies and cowboys amusing each other with fart jokes." True! But once you've been to America once you can claim forever more to know all about it because you've actually been there!

Gratitude Smatitude: Some people feel pangs of guilt about hating America since Americans liberated their nation, brought Democracy to their country, have given them billions in aid, etc. Don't be a sucker. America probably only helped you so they could sell you more McDonald's hamburgers or so they could tear up your national landmarks to drill for oil. Don't be fooled!

That Flag Waving is so Gauche: Nothing could be more annoying than a bunch of flag waving Americans chanting USA, USA, USA. I mean have you ever chanted France, France, France while eating escargot and caviar at a café? Of course not! What a bunch of barbarians!

Denying Anti-Americanism: It's very important that you deny being anti-American while ranting obsessively about how much you hate everything and everyone in America. This drives Americans crazy! If they press you to find something you like about America (Ha, ha! Yeah right) try to give them a left-handed compliment like "American universities have many brilliant professors who seem to understand America's oppressive role in the world. I certainly admire them."

Empire America: It's very important to state the obvious fact that America is trying to create an empire much like yet, like Ghengis Khahn did! That's why the Soviet Union had to invade so many countries, to stop American imperialism and hegemony! Of course a lot of people don't believe that but when the Canadians are made into slaves so they can build the "Bush pyramids" I think the world will wake up!

American Ignorance: American's are appallingly ignorant of other nations and worse yet, don't care! For example, ask an American who the Treasury Secretary of Spain is? When they say "No clue. What difference does it make?" Hit them with "There is no Treasury Secretary of Spain! It was a trick question and how can you not care you stupid American? What are you, too busy waving your stupid flag to pay attention? You Americans are morons!" Make sure to say things like this on internet forums and chat rooms because American's tend to watch too many John Wayne movies and think being insulted may be a good reason to fight. Have I called them barbarians yet?

The Trojan Horse of American Kindness: It is vitally important not to let America get away with what appear to be "good deeds." Take food drops in Afghanistan. The Americans were obviously trying to lead people into mine fields or kill them by squashing them with food packets. It was a clever trick (for Americans, har, har, har) but we're on to you!

Congratulations! You've now learned everything you'll need to know about anti-Americanism. You can now wear your turtleneck, eat your quiche, and sneer at everything American with pride! Viva la Anti-Americanism!

Subject:travel advisory: france

The following advisory for American travelers heading for France was
compiled from information provided by the US State Department, the
Central Intelligence Agency, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Food and Drug
Administration, the Center for Disease Control and some very expensive
spy satellites that the French don't know about. It is intended as a guide
for American travelers only and no guarantee of accuracy is ensured or

General Overview
France is a medium-sized foreign country situated on the continent of
Europe, and is for all intensive purposes completely useless. It is an
important member of the world community, although not nearly as
important as it thinks. It is bounded by Germany, Spain, Switzerland
and some smaller nations of no particular consequence or shopping
opportunities. France is a very old country with many treasures such as
the Louvre and EuroDisney. Among its contributions to Western
civilization are champagne, Camembert cheese, the guillotine, and body odor. Although

France likes to think of itself as a modern nation, air conditioning is little
used and it is next to impossible to get decent Mexican food. One
continuing exasperation for American visitors is that the people willfully
persist in speaking French, although many will speak English if shouted
at repeatedly.

The People
France has a population of 54 million people, most of whom drink and
smoke a great deal, drive like lunatics, are dangerously over sexed and
have no concept of standing patiently in a line. The French people are
generally gloomy, temperamental, proud, arrogant, aloof and undisciplined;
those are their good points. Most French citizens are Roman Catholic,
although you'd hardly guess it from their behavior. Many people are
Communists and topless sunbathing is common. Men sometimes have
girls' names like Marie and they kiss each other when they hand out medals.
American travelers are advised to travel in groups and to wear baseball
caps and colorful pants for easier mutual recognition. All French women
have small tits, and don't shave their armpits or their legs.

In general, France is a safe destination, although travelers are advised
that France is occasionally invaded by Germany. By tradition, the French
surrender more or less at once and, apart from a temporary shortage of
Scotch whisky and increased difficulty in getting baseball scores and
stock market prices, life for the visitors generally goes on much as before.
A tunnel connecting France to Britain beneath the English Channel has
been opened in recent years to make it easier for the French government
to flee to London.

France was discovered by Charlemagne in the Dark Ages. Other important
historical figures are Louis XIV, the Huguenots, Joan of Arc, Jacques
Cousteau and Charles de Gaulle, who was President for many years and is
now an airport. The French armies of the past have had their asses kicked
by just about every other country in the world.

The French form of government is democratic but noisy. Elections are
held more or less continuously and always result in a runoff. For
administrative purposes, the country is divided into regions, departments,
districts, municipalities, cantons, communes, villages, cafes, booths and floor
tiles. Parliament consists of two chambers, the Upper and Lower (although,
confusingly, they are both on the ground floor), whose members are
either Gaullists or communists, neither of whom can be trusted. Parliament's
principal preoccupations are setting off atomic bombs in the South
Pacific and acting indignant when anyone complains. According to the most
current State Department intelligence, the current President is someone
named Jacques. Further information is not available at this time.

The French pride themselves on their culture, although it is not easy to
see why. All of their songs sound the same and they have hardly ever made a
movie that you want to watch for anything except the nude scenes.
Nothing, of course, is more boring than a French novel (except perhaps
an evening with a French family.)

Let's face it, no matter how much garlic you put on it, a snail is just
a slug with a shell on its back. Croissants, on the other hand, are
excellent although it is impossible for most Americans to pronounce
this word. American travelers are therefore advised to stick to
cheeseburgers at McDonald's or the restaurants at the leading hotels
such as Sheraton or Holiday Inn. Bring your own beer, as the
domestic varieties are nothing but a poor excuse for such.

France has a large and diversified economy, second only to Germany's
economy in Europe, which is surprising since people hardly ever work
at all. If they are not spending four hours dawdling over lunch, they
are on strike and blocking the roads with their trucks and tractors.
France's principal exports, in order of importance to the economy,
are wine, nuclear weapons, perfume, guided missiles, champagne,
high-caliber weaponry, grenade launchers, land mines, tanks, attack
aircraft, miscellaneous armaments and cheese.

France enjoys a rich history, a picturesque and varied landscape and a
temperate climate. In short, it would be a very nice country if French
people didn't inhabit it, and it weren't still radioactive from all the
nuclear tests they run. The best thing that can be said for it is that
it is not Spain. Remember no one ordered you to go abroad.
Personally, we always take our vacation in Miami Beach and you
are advised to do the same.
