This is odd.

I can’t seem to find a single thing going on in the world today that I feel even the slightest bit motivated to blog about. Even on days when I don’t blog much (or at all) there’s still things that I think to myself that I should blog about if I can come up with something coherent enough to post, but today there hasn’t been anything that made me pause to consider the possibility of blogging about it.

Which isn’t to say that there isn’t anything out there worthy of commentary, just that it’s one of those rare occasions when I can’t come up with anything to shoot my mouth off about…

…other than not having anything to shoot my mouth off about.

  1. I tried to post something last night, but it appears it may have slipped through the cracks.  I spent several hours on it, so I don’t feel like re-doing it.

    I’m sure this article will help you come up with something to “shoot your mouth off” about (be warned, the article is quite long):
    Bush Challenges Hundreds of Laws

    Basically, it seems our Decider-in-Chief has nominated himself to the SCOTUS.  How did Bush KNOW that his nominees wouldn’t “legislate from the bench”?  He knows this because he’s going to interpret the Constitution for them.

  2. I can’t think of anything to say about this post, Les.  I suppose I could come up with some cute comment with absolutely no content, but that would be a waste of my time and everyone else’s, so I’ll abstain.  If I come up with anything, I’ll let you know.

  3. ShawnC, I can sympathize. I’ve lost the occasional entry in my time. I’m in the habit of hitting CTRL-A followed by CTRL-C just in case before attempting to submit. If you spend a long time working on something it seems like the session expires.

    Zilch, that’s probably a prudent choice.

  4. Hmmm.  City of Heroes Issue 7 has hit the test servers.  That’s worth commenting on …

    … well, if you play City of Heroes.  grin

  5. I’m in the habit of hitting CTRL-A followed by CTRL-C just in case before attempting to submit.

    I’ve been burned more than once before (not here) so I always do that too.  But I’ve never posted anything here before, and the software didn’t give me any feedback (that it didn’t go through), so I didn’t really think anything went wrong.  Luckily, I did it on my laptop, which I usually just close the lid on, so all the text was still on the clipboard.

    So hopefully it went through this time.  If not, I saved a copy just in case.

  6. Out of all the stuff that happened with May Day parades and riots you couldn’t find anything?  news.infoshop.org can get you started I hope.

  7. The parades I read plenty about, but I don’t recall any riots. That said the parades seem to go off pretty well so I’m not sure what to say about them…

    …other than the obvious joke that the INS folks missed a perfect opportunity to round up a lot of illegal immigrants in one fell swoop by not just fencing in the parades and putting everyone on a bus.

    I’ve said before that I don’t have a solution to the problem here and I can see arguments for both sides.  About all I can say with any certainty is that I think making illegals along with anyone who “helps” them into felons is a stunningly bad idea that benefits no one outside of the folks who build prisons for a living.

    I can see the practicality of amnesty for illegals already living here in part because it’s largely a mess we’ve allowed to develop for quite some time and partly because they are contributing to the economy in their own way, but I also agree that it’s not fair to the folks who are trying to immigrate legally. Then again my mother often taught me that “life isn’t fair, deal with it.”

    Honestly it’s a tough pickle with no easy solutions and I don’t have any of my own to offer up on the topic.
