Guantanamo

Hi thanks for visiting hotel Guantanamo. No you can't have an extra blanket. No you can't have hip new drinks. No you can't have fun. You can complain, but our complaint department is closed until some undisclosed time in the far distant future. Get bent and have a nice day.

So you have to wonder when you keep someone for four years in really sucky conditions how they are going to feel. The danger is many of these people are highly intelligent, and when you get highly intelligent people really pissed I would suppose you could come up with some pretty imaginative reprocussions. So here we are letting out highly pissed off intelligent people. Now you have to think that Saddam Hussein, Adolph Hitler and other butchers have learned is that these are the people that you kill off.

I know that this sounds dark, mean and utterly sadistic but I suppose that the US strategy will be to release them back to their country (those that they let go) and then declare that those countries are harboring terrorist and then blow up the whole country to get more bang for their buck. And it is strange that America is like why does everybody hate us? I mean we put people in jail for four freaking years for being Arab in the wrong place and then expect them not to be pissed.

We spend four years in a country that they blew up and not made any progress at making it better and then be surprised when "insurgents" come rushing in. I think as Americans we really need to evaluate our values and really ask ourselves are we trying to make it better. If we aren't trying to make it better and are just trying to dominate a reason suck out resources regardless of cost of human life then we need to grow balls and say that. However we will need to be prepared to deal with the consequences.

reconstitute

I will no longer reconstitute blogs that are LIT (lost in transmission) I hate spilling all my guts out in literary excellence only to lose the to binary bafoons of random memory glitches. I hate the watery products of recontituted thoughts tainted with the odd flavor of tin and tap water. I apologize but those thoughts will fade in the wind.

CL is an awesome tool for dumping the stuff that you don't need. However if you are driving around peddling your wares then it can cancel out earnings unless you are reselling free stuff. Then it can pay quite well. I suppose. I've made a few bucks off of stuff I got for free.


Currently I'm trapped in this tunnel and taking the time to blog. This is serious traffic. More traffic for a shorter distance. Sucks.

I'm going through DC and observing the homeless. I think of Crystal Water's song, but no one is dancing. I have no right to complain about my bills. My problems pale in comparison to theirs. Driving through New York ave watching active gentrification. The worn faces of those hardend by these cold streets. Around the corner is a small Masjid with no money or help from wealthier communities, but they have love. Alhamdulillah.


Traffic picks up and we all race to wait somewhere else. A mile later we all stop and creep along.


Time passes and I ponder great website ideas, a poetry corner for spoken word. Hmm what would it have that youtube doesn't? Ambiance, maybe if there is such a thing on the web and then what would that do for the internet challenged (dial-up). Maybe that's what I should save up for an internet dish from hughesnet.

There is a guy at my job that makes his own music I like some of it. Pretty cool stuff. Well that's all for now.

Sorry

Sorry folks for not posting and leaving you to look at that crude pic. Things are rough, but I suppose we will survive. Wifee's lonely and I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Wifee has the laptop so I only have access at work. Shaytan got some strange bug in Wifee's head the I was getting some side action with her out of sight. I'm tried but Oprah won't return any of my calls. So I'm gonna try to get in on the Anna Nicole paternity thing. Ought to be good for a couple mil in shut-up money.

Seriously though this makes me wonder how it is all gonna fare with me gone. Insha Allah it will all work out. Girls are at Dad's. It makes me think that things would be so much easier with a co-wife, but after this I guess it will all go back to normal. Well I'm cleaning so gotta go. I'll post more to make that pic go away. Only 9 more til it's gone.

Crude

Only on highway rest stops can you find these crude tidbits of Americana. I remember seeing these as a kid growing up and always found them odd.

Bummer

Well here I am without an internet connection and apparently without a phone. My phone cord died and there isn’t anything I can really do about it. I have another cord that I can cut up and try to use but it really would be kind of counter productive. I like the little retractable cables but they aren’t really that sturdy so now that I know that I will have to be more careful with the next one. They are designed for occasional use, but I use mine all the time for my phone. I think that ultimately they need to create it so that it has a metal jacket or braiding around it, so enough on that.

So I suppose I can try to give you the full update, but I won’t know how updated it will be by the time I post it because I don’t have a phone to email this from. I wouldn’t have coverage if I did, and I really don’t want to tie up my dad’s phone line. I probably will just to USB this thing out later on today or something.

Well let me see you’ve all seen the pictures of the baby. I haven’t because I haven’t had an internet connection, so I’m kinda out of the loop. Well anyway here goes. We went to the Dr.’s last Monday and sure as grits is groceries she said that she had to be admitted fulltime to the hospital. So we putz around a little and then head on up to Bethesda National Hospital. Now where she is if you do research on the hospital and the NICU there you will find out that it is one of the best in the world. So we kinda got lucky on that one. They have the state of the art everything there; you’ve seen the 3D ultrasound photos. Excuse my chinsy camera. They have it all. Wifee is in a room all by herself and bored as hell so you can give her a call. I don’t know if I have set up her email on her phone yet but you can email her directly at mrssaadiq at sprintpcs dot com or net one of the two I will give a more definitive answer when I get my phone back up and running. So by all means write to her so that she can have some connection to the outside world. I would give her number but I haven’t asked her about that at the time of this post. I know that there are some readers in and around the Maryland area if you wanted to drop by you could. We are going to start celebrating Tuesdays as we count down the weeks. She needs to keep the baby in for ten more weeks before the C-section. So that’s’ like April 9th.

So the plan as it stands is this I’m taking my two girls to stay with my father. If they do well there I may or may not leave them there after I finish the lake house. My foster son and my eldest daughter will be at a friend’s house for the most part and I will try to take them to see mom at least once a week. If I had the lake house fixed everything wouldn’t be so bad. I could keep the girls here and everything, but I think that I will get them after I finish the lake house.

So it appears that the girls will be with my parents at least until my preliminary schools are done. I have to have the lake house fixed and rented this month. After this month I won’t have any recourse to any emergency cash stashes. So there it is. Well needless to say this is all freaking out my wife. She is having a very hard time without the girls and the ability to relax. She can’t sleep. Not that she ever does without me. If I’m there she sleeps like a baby but if I’m not there than forget it. They are thinking about giving her a sedative at night to make her fall asleep but Insha Allah that won’t happen. I actually hope to get my girls as soon as I finish this house so that I won’t have to worry about my kids eating pork or pork based products. We keep a vigilant eye out but my parents aren’t so keen as to all of the places they stash the hog. Uggh!

Well that is all I have to write today maybe I will write some more stuff later on. I’ll be chilling with my cousin a little later. I start back on either Saturday night or Sunday morning to go back home and drop the kids off. Then it’s back to work. I’m sorry that I haven’t been blogging but there have been some serious set backs as far as comms are concerned.
