Urban Prowl

It is in the best interest of the United States and of all freedom loving people that this blog, this courageous act of free speech, be allowed to exist and furthermore that its existence shall not pass by un-noticed, for the reading of this blog, this work of crap, shall inspire generations and the revolution that communist lunatics are always talking about will be borne on it's back. Urban Prowl embraces this task and responsibility and pledges its commitment to spewing nothing but garbage.

Today, C-span re-aired a program held earlier this year that brought together a number of major players of the Clinton administration to discuss Clinton's Presidency. A Columbia law professor who served as an ambassador to Spain (as well as other diplomatic/state duties) spoke about the administration's approach to foreign policy and how it differs from Bush's approach. The major difference, he says is the view of unilateralism and multilateralism. Clinton, he said believed that multilateralism was critical; it was an approach that was always used when possible while unilateral resloves were used only when necessary. The Bush administration has reversed that trend, using unilateralism when possible and multilateralism only when necessary.

I am by no means a scholar (even remotely) in American diplomacy or foreign policy but common sense dictates, espeically in this day and age where the way of life of people everywhere is governed by the strings of globalization, that multilateralism as an ideology is embranced and put into practice.

Unilateralism first reared its head during the country's founding when isolationists believed it was best that the United States remained independent of European affairs which, at that time, usually involved wars and the treat of wars. In this day and age however, isolationism and unilateralism has little place in American foreign policy because everything - economies, cultures etc - have become way too fluid. It's 2005, not 1775. We cannot disassociate ourselves with the rest of world and run to the woodlands in our backyard for our basic necessities. Even oil, the black gold that runs our country has to be imported from other places.

Now, I would look forward to interesting comments and arguments in favour of unilateralism but since no one reads this piece of shit, I guess I'll go watch Golden Girls and pretend not to like it.

Fox News, you slay me.
Tonight on Hannity and Shithead (Colmes) they had a guest who is supposed to be a founder or whatever for the 'intelligent design theory' movement. And he said that there are signs of intelligent design in Mt. Rushmore and in cells. He argued that there are signs of intelligent design in cells because they are so complex. Many moons ago, he said, scientists believed that cells could erupt spontaneously and that they were very simple, now, he says, they are very complex thus intelligent design must have played a part in their development.

Quite frankly, only Fox News would be dumb enough to put this kind of illogical garbage on the air. Sometimes I wonder why I don't kill myself instead of even flipping by that damn channel.

I consider myself a very open guy - I'm always open to other views and opinions but somehow, I can't stoop to the level of these people. Maybe there are flaws in evolution because evidently some people still haven't evolved. ...and to think, many of them are running this country.

What the fuck does the future hold?

The Administration keeps on saying that 'domestic' spying only affects parties who communicate with others outside the United States. What if I call my family and discuss private matters on the phone - does that mean that the government should be allowed to spy on me too?

I just don't understand what justifies this attack upon civil liberties.
