I don't have another excuse for not posting anything in here. Just a combination of lethergy and exhaustion with a small dose of dispair thrown in for good measure. I'm feeling much better now!

The Princess and I did go to the March 19 End The War rally in SD so at least I haven't become completely derelict.

What really brought me back here today was watching David Ray Griffin on C-Span 2 this morning. Very powerful stuff. He is a professor emeritus at Claremont College of Theology. Not a wild, ranting conspiracy theorist by any means. I really didn't know what I was going to see when I watched his speech at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which was sponsored by the Muslin-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, but he was incredibly persuative. As the article I linked to above states, he thinks the Bush admin basically took a fall in order to create a new "Pearl Harbor" which would build popular support for their already established goals of global dominance. I think one of the reasons his arguement is so persuasive is that he is raising simply logical questions about the events of the last few years that the mainstream media has not asked. He's also saying many of the things that many of us have thought all along. We know it doesn't all add up and we are not hearing the truth. When Dr Griffin wraps all of these questions of the last four years into one logical and continuous historical thread, it's terrifiying. Of course what he has to say is controversial, but when you add up all well documented events it leads to some frightening possibilities.

In the end, Dr Griffin talked about how the major religions should unite to fight back against the profoundly unethical and immoral direction that has been taken in our name. Even if you don't agree with his theories about what happened on 9/11 it's hard to dispute that aggression and this push for domination is immoral and at odds with the foundations of all major religions. This country is being run by people with a profoundly twisted sense of morality and ethics, and it's time for people of all spiritual traditions to become united, for they "have nothing to lose but their impotence."
