Obviously we haven't learned our lessons from Latin America...now we have to try it again in the mid [Feb. 15th, 2006|04:03 pm]
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- President Bush wants $75 million to try to spur democracy in its adversary Iran, expanding a program that skeptics say can have little effect in the Islamic republic.

"The United States will actively confront the aggressive policies of the Iranian regime. At the same time, we will work to support the aspirations of the Iranian people for freedom and democracy in their country," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told a congressional budget hearing.

Rice said the funds would be used to broadcast U.S. radio and television programs into Iran and pay for Iranians to study in America. She requested the money in a supplemental budget request for fiscal year 2006.

Congress has already approved $10 million for such programs for the year, which begins October 1.

Political analysts and Western diplomats are skeptical U.S. efforts to reach out to Iranians can work in a country where America is labeled the "Great Satan" and believed to be anti-Muslim, particularly because of a perception it favors Israelis over Palestinians.

The United States, which cut diplomatic ties with Iran after its 1979 revolution, is locked in a standoff with the Islamic republic to curb what it suspects are programs to build a nuclear bomb.

But the Bush administration has emphasized in recent weeks that it is not at odds with the people of Iran and said it wants to help them win freedoms from their government.

Nuclear clash
At the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Rice said the Iranian government had increasingly isolated itself by pursuing nuclear programs.

"They have now crossed a point where they are in open defiance" of the international community, she said Wednesday.

She told the committee the Bush administration has been examining the "full range of sanctions on Iran" and is also considering additional sanctions the United States could impose on its own, although international action would be more effective.

Appearing before lawmakers, Rice gave no details. The United States has had broad sanctions on Iran since that country's 1979 Islamic revolution.

Iran says its nuclear programs are for peaceful electricity generation.

Rice said she will visit the Gulf region next week to discuss Iran's nuclear programs with Tehran's Arab neighbors. She did not specify which countries she will visit.

A U.S. official has said Rice is expected to visit Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and discuss the election victory of the Palestinian group Hamas and Muslim outrage at cartoons satirizing Prophet Mohammad.

New Begginings.... [Jan. 27th, 2006|01:17 pm]
So I just quit my job at Durango. Something I never thought I'd do, but I did it. I don't feel happy, I'm not sad. I'm nervous if anything. I've already got another job, so I shouldn't be too worried. I just hope eerything works out cause there's no going back.

I've never known anyone who has been murdered. In fact I could probably count on two hands all the people in my life that are "no longer with us". Anyone in the Tampa Bay area who watched the TV listened to the radio or read the paper today I'm sure heard about the events which took place at the 4th Street location of Durango Steake House early Monday morning. Steven Holmes was murdered durring a robbery. While I did not know him well, and probably exchanged a little more than a few brief lines with him, we were aquainted through my Durango while he was doing his mangers training.

I don't know how I feel right now. As usual I am somewhat unaffected by the passing of another human being. I don't know why but I've never been deeply distraught when it comes to death or "tragedies". What disturbs me is the hate and violence which can be harbored in and executed by the human body. What sickens me even more, knowing that this was s robbery and the time over year that it is I know that this crime was probably commited by someone who is not typically I "bad person". THe man or men who comitted this crime were probably driving by our disgusting display of American greed and hubris that we call "Christmas" a time when nothing is more sacred than the dollar and a time of year when those who are without are left feeling worthless, deprivived, or sub-human because they cannot participate in the Capitilist Holiday of Christmas. May I'm wrong though. Maybe it's easier to think of him as a demon with red eyes and horns, a long wirey til spiked at the end, someone no t liek mor eor you. An addict- just trying to ge this next fix. Someone cold. Something cold. Remember he's not like us.

My prayers go out to Stevens family. I hope that his baby girl might have some chance of knowing a normal life. My prayers also lay in my fears- that could have been me, that could have been Josh, Jill, Nan, Rick, Marcus, Stan, Ellen, Dawn, Steve, Sandy...shit the list goes on...Is it wrong in this case to be thanking God that it wasn't one of us?

I pray most of all that Justice will be done.

So it was an interesting weekend. Some what emotional, mostly boring though, but oddly insightful. Finally hung out with Anthony seemed like we hadn't hung out in months...unfortuately I was in a bitchey mood after the jackass bartender at copper top wouldn't take my id. I was acting like a total douche most of the night- just moody and irritable mostly. I dunno why I let the guy bother me so much, guess it was just one more thing on top of the pile. I really need to learn not to let people get to me. I was fucked up lastnight though (not like drunk fucked up, but fucked up like I wasn't feeling like myself) said a lot of shit I didn't really mean, a lot of things seemed jumbled like I couldn't find the right words, danced around a lot of shit all night. Thinking back on it this morning I really meant the exact opposite of what I was saying. I'm sure there's some sort of disorder which all this can be linked too...anyway enough of that.

Worked my first lunch shift at the happiest place on earth (and I mean that in the most sarcastic of ways) Durango today...made about the same as I've been doing at dinner but seemed like the day went by faster, and I was home by 3.30 which would be the time I am usually waking up. Overall good day at work...shocked the shit out of me. Found an add for a gay club downtown that's hiring, just need to get my resume up to date so I can maybe, hopefully, with any luck at all get the job.

Got Winston back from Tara yesterday. He's gotten so big! He's still cute as hell though. He's a little camera whore too...maybe later I'll figur eout how to post some pics.

Long day a head of me tomorrow. Classes from 9.30-12.45 then 2.00-4.45, then i need to do laundry and then I might head up to Keith's to embarass myself in the pool tournment again this week. Went 'power walking; with Megan on campus tongiht felt good to get some exercise and it was a nice night. Anyway I'm rambling when i should be getting ready for bed.

I think the bouncey ball may be on it's way back up....(not to be stealing anyone's lines or anything)

You are elegant, withdrawn, and brilliant.
Your mind is a weapon, able to solve any puzzle.
You are also great at poking holes in arguments and common beliefs.

For you, comfort and calm are very important.
You tend to thrive on your own and shrug off most affection.
You prefer to protect your emotions and stay strong.
