I plan to be quite pissed off at Obama for continuing to send troops to Afghanistan when he makes that expected announcement tomorrow evening. More blood and treasure will flow into an unwinable situation and it will not even gain the President the political advantage and support he thinks it will bring him from the right. They will instead chastise Obama for waiting too long and 'waffling' about a decision he should have made weeks ago. Instead of searching for an honorable way to bring those brave young men and women home to their families, he puts more of them in harm's way. I hate these moments when a man who could have been a transformative figure in our world turns out to be just another politician. I especially hate, however, how dumb I was for hoping he could be something different. It only takes one man to lead the revolution and only one to stop it dead in its tracks.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
