ODB, Monsanto vs. Iraq, Ashcroft hates judicial branch

Usually Sundays are pretty slow news days, but the first thing I read this morning was just more bad news - the passing of ODB...I mean, first Arafat, now this?

Also, it looks like Iraq is going to have to start paying for this democracy that we they wanted so badly. Except it's not just the oil, of's those seed-saving, intellectual-property-violatin' hooligan farmers who insist on saving their seeds to, well, ya know, plant more next year. Not anymore...they're going to have to pay for their seeds every year just like the rest of the world does now. Do you think we could do a little more to rile up the Iraqi populace?

And John Ashcroft is trying to shake the resignation blues with some limelight-grabbing quotes, such as, "The danger I see here is that intrusive judicial oversight and second-guessing of presidential determinations in these critical areas can put at risk the very security of our nation in a time of war" So quit questioning Bush, judges! Can't you see we've got a country to lead? I mean, which is more important, George Bush's war(s), or some outdated Constitution?
