Why are you still reading this?
Ok, I'll think of something.
The truth is I've not done very much since my last entry. I came home, I slept, I got up, watched tv, had a Chinese take-away, and slept some more. Mrs. Hippy has a bad cold, so she is sleeping a lot too. After I finish writing this, I'll probably have a spliff and go back to bed myself. Hey ho.
I'm working tonight, the first shift of three this week. I'm taking it easier for the rest of the month, I hope. After my 8 and 1/2 shifts in a row last week, I could do with things being more laid-back.
Less is more for the next month or two. Finding a balance would be ideal.
So everyone's jumping on the "Iraq didn't really have any weapons of mass destruction" bandwagon. Oooops, we got it wrong. Sorry. The CIA blew it, other intelligence agencies got it wrong too. The Butler Report comes out here in the UK this week, its expected to say the same thing. Tony Blair knew.
Check out THIS ARTICLE from today's Observer newspaper. The spooks told the gov't there were no weapons, but did they listen? Around a thousand "coalition" deaths and countless (uncounted!) dead Iraqi civilians later and they still won't admit the truth.
Fucking cockhead George W. (for wanker) Bush is still bleating on about the world being a "much safer place" with Saddam Hussein gone. No one believes you Georgie, I hope you get fucked so hard come the November election that your asshole bleeds!
You are singularly the worst president America has ever had, and after Nixon, that is saying something. You didn't deserve the job, you didn't really win the election, you don't have a clue about how the world really works. Fuck off back to Texas and tend to your cattle. Please!
Yes, I am hepped up a bit, but I blame Michael Moore. I had a "special screening" of Fahrenheit 9/11 a couple of days ago. It is very well made. Don't let anyone fool you, there is much truth contained in this film.
Michael Moore did his homework, did his fact checking. On his website, he talks about offering $10,000 to anyone who can find a factual inaccuracy in the film. He even provides sourcing on the claims made in the film, you can read them HERE.
What Michael Moore does, and does not apologise for is expressing his opinions of the facts. Moore's storytelling is effectively his interpretation of these facts. You can look at the same evidence and draw your own conclusions, though you would be hard-pressed to reach anything that differs from Mike's.
There's nothing in the film factually that I hadn't read or heard before, but what Michael Moore does is put it all into a coherent and clear structure all in one place. Whether you agree with his politics or not, this is a film you should see.
If this film helps to sway one voter away from Bush, it will have done it's job. Well done Mike.
Not much luck on the shrooming front, have not had the time or the good spirits to enjoy any lately. The NME says that this is the "summer of love" thanks to the availability and legality of fresh magic mushrooms. This worries me.
It really is only a matter of time before the government decides to piss all over the party and close the loophole in the law. The more popular they get, the more well known their availability becomes, the sooner some anti-drug scumbag will try to put an end to the fun. We can't let them take the FUN out of FUNgus, can we?
So what can we do? As one of the internet's most shroomtastic supporters of shrooming, I can only suggest we stick to keeping things safe and fun. People should do their homework before getting involved with shrooms.
All it is going to take is for one little kiddie to buy some at his local headshop and go a bit crazeeeee. Head up to Camden on a Saturday afternoon and you will see loads of underage suburban teens fresh off the mainline trains, ready to spend their weekly allowance on all sorts, including shrooms. Its only a matter of time.
Shroom sellers need to self-regulate and soon. They should only sell to over-18s, and give some advice with every purchase. The SHROOM SHOP, a well known wholesaler/retailer here in the UK offers an excellent example of this sort of thing and I hope they don't mind if I include a LINK to their "shroom protocol". It's worthy reading if you have even a passing interest in magic mushrooms.
Gosh, for someone who started out by exclaiming he had nothing to say, this hippy just filled a few pages. Grooooovin'!!!!!!!!
