Muslims are in the Hajj - thanks to a lunar calendar, things move around a bit according to our solar year, so this time around the crazy times in Mecca are December 31 to January 2. Hope all goes smoothly this year - there's a lot of pissed-ness in the Islamic world. Something about being used and abused and discriminated against.
Haven't had access for a couple of days - wonder if Virgil Goode has been repudiated by the White House. I'm not holding my breath.
And another counter-carol; we're still in the 12 days of Xmas, the 5 days of Saturnalia, and it's the first day of Kwanzaa (Unity, if I recall correctly)
Wal-Mart the Corporate Monster
Tune: Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer
New Words: nihilix and LeighAnne
Wal-Mart the corporate monster
Has a lot of sweat shop stuff
And if you call them on it
They begin to lie and bluff
All of the Wal-Mart workers
Get their health from Medicare
And if they’re feeling sickly
They’re no longer working there!
Then one muggy May the 1st
Joe Hill came to say
Workers now unleash your rage
Force them to pay living wage!
And they all formed a union
Kicked Sam Walton in the ass
That really showed ol' Wal-Mart
You can't stop the working class!
And besides this, Bush abdicatum est*.
(Bush must resign)
