for leaving Bloomington for one day.
All Hell breaks loose in Iraq.
Who do these people think they are? Honestly… Hanging bodies from a bridge went out with the fourteenth century. Especially bodies of Americans who are there not by their own interest, but because of a selfish Commander in Chief who wants to lower oil prices thousands of miles away!
Let’s do a recap of the events of the past couple years.
Sept. 11, 2001
I’m not going to say anything about this one. You all know what happened. We were all touched by this day in one way or another.
October 7, 2001
US and British forces started bombing Afghanistan, a land war followed. The main objectives:
- Oust the Taliban
- Find Osama Bin Laden and dismantle his terrorist regime
There were others, those are the main ones. Status report:
- We ousted the Taliban. That was pretty easy.
- Osama Bin Laden has yet to be found, and his terror network, Al Queda, is still functioning, although seriously wounded.
It has been 927 days since Bush said he would catch Bin Laden “Dead or Alive” and we still haven’t seen him.
March 19, 2003
The United States of Ameica and England begin the invasion of Iraq. Main objectives:
- Oust Saddam Hussein
- Find and destroy the rumored Weapons of Mass Destruction
- Break the ties between Iraq and the Taliban and Al Queda that were said to exist.
Again, those are a few, not all of them.
- Saddam is in US Custody
- There have been no WMDs found in Iraq to this day
- There has been no evidence of ties between Iraq and the Taliban and Al Queda
We’re making some good pogress. It’s only been three years and we’ve completed two of our objectives. Kinda makes you wonder what Bush has been doing all this time with our friends and family overseas fighting HIS war.
It is not our war, it is his war! A war for “the glory of the Bush family”.

The Daily Update
Today was interesting. When Erin and I awoke, I realized that I did not bring a bag home to pack for convention this weekend. This meant yet another trip to the ville for Tom.
I packed everything up and headed out the door by 9:45am, got home around 11. I quickly ate lunch, fixed my parents’ computer and wrote down and plotted all of the geocaches in Shelbyville.
Laura and I headed out for an afternoon of geocaching fun around noon. We were out until 3:45 that afternoon when we returned home. We found a total of thirteen caches, mostly micros. All of them were hidden in awesome locations. I posted some photos in my photoblog.
It was nice to get out and about the places where I grew up. I had a lot of fun, and judging by the perpetual smile, Laura, too, had fun. We literally went all over Shelbyville looking for these. There is one in every park and a few just randomly scattered about.
Then I headed back to Bloomington to be at work, and that’s where I am right now. Exciting, I know.
