2007 Deadliest Year for US Troups in Iraq - 855 dead so far YTD

11/7/07

2007 has been the DEADLIEST year for American Troups in Iraq, thus far.

855 soldiers (husbands, dads, wives, sisters, daughters, uncles, brothers, aunts) dead this year...and it isn't over yet !

What will it take for the Gov't to get the message...and bring our TROUPS HOME (insted of deploying thousands more ???)

What a ghastly mess Bush made.... and if the Democrats win, the next term (or two)...they'll be left to clean up the DISASTER Bush created.

Thousands of Lives and Billions of dollars down the drain....

Wal-Mart Sucks ... We don't call it Fascist-Mart for nothing

Re: 10/25/07 Two Oceanside, CA Stores

Ok, so our first mistake was going to Wal-Mart. Our second, was going to TWO in one evening !

Wal-Mart #1, on Jefferson & Vista Way in Oceanside, had children running amuck, store-wide!

In the end we requested a manager...got some sort of managers...one had on NO ID /name tag. Asked that they make an announcement in English and in Spanish - requesting that customers KEEP THEIR CHILDREN WITH THEM while shopping (at all times)... one wasn't 'even sure if they could do that' ?! So, who knows if they did or didn't, after we left.

  • We saw big kids (10-12) running at full speed -- for a long period of time - playing 'chase' or tag or ? through large areas of the store.

  • A small child, maybe 2, with his little face pushed up against the glass of the INSIDE of a REFRIGERATED CASE (safe and hygenic!).

  • A child of about 3 years old.... 'shopping', playing with toys in a toy aisle...alone !

This isn't safe for the children or their customers. Is it the Store's fault that their customers have NO REGARD for the safety of their own children, or others' ? Partially. They need to be vigilent to make announcements, and or 'patrol' if necessary, to keep their customers safe. And shopping experience somewhat pleasant. As horrible as it is, anyway.

At Fascist-Mart #2... Marron Road, Oceanside, CA

We attempted to spend more money - give more money to this corporate giant (in some towns a monopoly)... And "Kari" (we think that was her name?) at the customer service desk was RUDE. When we told her she was rude, she had NO IDEA she was rude. AND THEN when we called her on it... told us WE WERE BEING RUDE.

It's always a good idea (!??!), to tell your customers, who are about to add to your store's revenue, that THEY'RE being rude ?! Great job, Kari!?

We brought an exchange and purchase to the 'customer service' (yeah right) desk... we told Kari that we had to go to the car, to get the exchange item and receipt (just purchased at Wally #1 a few mins earlier, see above) -- she clapped her hands and in a tut-tut fashion... told us to hurry because they (customer service) was closing. OH, how high can I jump for you ? How fast can I run for you ? to have the privelege of spending and additional $30 at your awful store... and thus give you a chance at a paycheck ?

Just a couple of more reasons why Wal-Mart Sucks !

Al Gore wins Nobel Peace Prize - Kudos from PeaceLoveAndShopping.com

Kudos for AL GORE for winning the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE THIS WEEK!

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/13/world/13nobel.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

When one door closes (his Presidential race in 2000), another one opens... his opportunity to enlighten the world about the significant affects of climate change.

Now if we could only turn OUR nation around, from an oil $ hungry and oil $ driven economy to an enviornmentally concious one !

Hybrid cars should NOT cost MORE than their gas guzzling counterparts. We should receive a BREAK $ for purchasing, owning and driving one!

Alternative fuel options should receive more $ for R&D and be put into practical use.

Solar panels and other alternate energy options, such as wind turbines, should become the norm, and and affordable option for all.

The sun, the wind, hydropower... it's all there...waiting to be harnessed and used as power sources.

uncredited AP article PAPER, PLASTIC OR FASHIONABLE?



Shoppers snag designer grocery totes
Mon May 7, 1:27 PM ET
A trip to the grocery store is becoming a lot more fashionable as consumers look to designer totes to bag their greens and express their style.
Hermes, Stella McCartney and Consuelo Castiglioni of Marni are among the top designers now offering reusable shopping bags that are chic and pricey.
The bags give shoppers an alternative to paper or plastic without sacrificing style.
The Silky Pop Hermes bag, which will go on sale in the U.S. this summer, has a price tag of $960. Made of hand-wrought silk, it collapses into a wallet-size pouch of calfskin. Castiglioni's foldable nylon bag retails for $843. The Stella McCartney organic canvas shopper sells for $495.
Reusable shopping bags — which have mostly been confined to farmers' markets and health food co-ops — have increased in popularity as cities consider banning the use of certain plastic bags and encourage shoppers to do more for the environment.
Earlier this year, San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban the use of nonbiodegradable plastic grocery bags. Since then, cities from Boston to Berkeley have taken up similar proposals. Los Angeles County is studying options ranging from an outright ban to better education on recycling.
While the designer bags are eye-catching, cheaper totes are also grabbing attention.
Trader Joe's sells a $1.99 bright blue-and-green print polypropylene sack. And the "I'm Not a Plastic Bag" by British handbag designer Anya Hindmarch goes for $15, though it has fetched 10 times that much on the eBay auction Web site.
This month's Vogue magazine urges fashionistas to become more bag-wise: "No loitering, girls," says contributing editor Sarah Mower. "Today, let us go out and harness the power of fashion to change the way the nation shops."

Tony Blair Resigns... Popularity down, still higher than GW though !?

Blair Britain's P.M. resigns...

Largely because of lack of support by the English populus for going to Iraq & supporting the Bush regime.

Tony's approval ratings are apparently low (appx 33% +/-) though still higher than GEORGE'S here at home !!!!!

GW is the poster-child for a nation of non-supporters (of our presence in Iraq) !

Oh Please George W. ... Tony (though we liked him, his accent so similar to that of actor, Hugh Grant's!) .... has the right idea.... follow his LEAD ! Please !

This week's PeaceLoveAndShopping 's song/video choice... here's to you George W. courtesy of Trent Reznor & Nine Inch Nails (NIN)...

"Capital G"
Check out the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgq0_OqYkx4

April the Deadliest Month this Year !

Well, the (Bush) Administration has done it again! April '07 has been the deadliest month, for Americans in Iraq...so far this year (Since Dec 06).

Sad.

This war is a fatal folly for Bush and his compadre$. Shame on our Government. And I use the term "our" loosely.

Avril Lavigne g'd bless her for trying... and come on Gwen !

Saw Avril Lavigne on SNL (Saturday Night Live) perform her latest single "Girlfriend" (album releases tuesday).... and g'd help her... she was HORRIBLE http://youtube.com/watch?v=N7MjhBFy0EE
.... she made Ashley Simpson's (infamous) performance (on SNL), seem...well... not quite so bad !

She's married now, of course... older, more mature than we she made it big at 17... but boy (or should i say sk8r boi) did she go downhill !

Her single is high on the billboard charts... perhaps a younger, less refined ear can appreciate her 'maturity'.... but i say, bring back the 17 yr old Avril !!! She looked and sounded more like 14...than early 20's.

And on the subject of dumb-ing down pop music.... the latest by Gwen Stefani... is beyond idiotic too... I commend her Madonna-esq image changes, the Japanese dancers, etc... but compared to her prev. solo albumn and OF course her time as lead of No Doubt... this latest (title track) "Sweet Escape" is MORNONIC (winning lyrics ?! I don't think so) ! (sorry Gwen) http://youtube.com/watch?v=zoHBlTMwCno

New NIN releases this week -- YEAH !

Happy Friday the 13th ! Hope it was a good day for all !

Peace Love and Pasta ?!

So, there's a YUIMMY Pasta dish called Pollo or Chicken Limone. I enjoy it over (ala) a 'bed' of linguine. That way the same yummy sauce is on the chicken AND the pasta too.

A good one (in addition to the basic yummy ingredients) includes white wine, lemon juice, mushrooms, olives, capers, oh...and I always 'add' artichoke hearts !

Jay's Gourmet in Carlsbad, CA and Encinitas, CA make a DELICIOUS Chicken Limone w/ artichoke hearts -- I highly recommend it.

I just tried the version at OGGI'S pizza & pasta (many locations), this one was Vista, CA. It was surprisingly excellent ! Comparable to Jay's Gourmet, give or take.

Yesterday I tried the Pollo Limone at Cafe Italia, in Palm Springs, CA ... it was BEYOND bad. At $16.95 a royal rip-off. It was chicken w/ some cheese baked too it (no mushrooms, no capers, no flavor, no sauce) ... on a pile of sauce-less (plain) spaghetti. That's it ! It went in the trash.

Bon appetite !

Great quote du jour

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, l952-----

Why Peace Love And Shopping.... a rant ?

Instant gratification isn't fast enough ! (quote of the day)

The few, the proud...the SANE

Why Peace Love And Shopping ? Because its a few of my favorite things ! Ok, don't break out into a Sound of Music chorus....

With the seriousness of War... and nutty Bush sending THOUSANDS more innocent young americans directly into harms way... we need a respit from the nutiness of our politicians.... some levity.... (thus the peaceloveandSHOPPING)

Peace Signs are my 'religious symbol'.... hope you join my 'religion' ... but, peace signs sometimes aren't enough.... that's where SHOPPING comes in ! retail therapy...it can be less (or more) than actual psycho-therapy.... and you can always reverse-shop (return items)... hard to reverse-psycho-therapy ! sounds painful ! ;-)

Peace signs are good... they show, when we wear them, or display them... that we are the few...the sane.... the American who is shameful in the world's eye -- because of our corrupt leader(S).

We're brainwashed into thinking that the right way is the American Way...that's why we must go and invade other lands...so they can carry on, using the American model. But, what a sham ! Our corruption is merely more sophisticated... and stealth... Money talks... and rules our nation, JUST like the third-world nations we scorn and criticize.

In the 70's, on a field trip (as a kid!) I toured a hippie, earth-concious house.... which utilized solar energy, hydro-ponics, you name it ! What happened ! Those technologies could be popularized... but not when the BUSH's and other oil-grubby multi-millionaires control the spending of research, environmental protection, and the AUTO MAKERS.

Hybrids cost more, $10K or more than the same model that uses unleaded gas. Why ? I think you know ! Solar energy for our homes..... just not cost efficient.... VERY expensive to install.... why ? I think you know !

Wear and display your peace signs with PRIDE.... the few, the proud, the SANE.
