In the words of faithless:
I need to get some sleep….. I cant get no sleep.
Yet another night where I just can’t seem to get to sleep. I just lie in my bed looking at my ceiling counting the black marks from years of not being painted. Actually my ceiling is quite well painted, but I think I’m allowed to exaggerate to get my point over, which is I CAN’T BLOODY SLEEP!. God damn it.
But on the plus side I finished stupid white men by Michael Moore and here are a few interesting facts I thought I would share from the book:
1,275 American Companies with assets of $250m or more also paid no taxes and reported no income for 1995
only 11% of the American Public read a newspaper.
Only 9% of Americans have a degree.
And lots more shocking ones.
Michael Moore is very good at writing this stuff, occasionally I have to say I don’t side with his interpretation of the facts but mostly he seems spot on. And it really does paint a sorry picture of America and Britain as a smaller cousin (A position I REALLY wish we weren’t in).
But hey the bombs are about to start falling on Iraq and America are going to plunder their oil fields. Oh and incidentally the interim government of Afghanistan has allowed US plans for an oil pipeline to be built across their country so now we know the REAL reason for that war, especially as the bin Laden family were a big contributor to Bush senior and junior campaigns for presidential election!
Speaking of the Bin Ladens this this appeared on FARK. It appears we’ll all be listening to that new Bin Laden sound before long!
Well I really should complain so much. After all, all I have is insomnia.
