Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.


September 11th

Happy September 11th everybody!  Isn't it wonderful?  I can't believe it's here already. I hardly had time to get all of my shopping done.  Did you get all of your shopping done for all of your republican war mongering friends. 9/11 is their holiday.  It's their special day.  The day they celebrate being strong on terror.  They salivate at the thought of 9/11. The day that gives them the excuse to kill thousands of people.  The day that helped them pull the wool over everyone's eyes.  The day that they use the innocent American blood of almost 3000 people to declare a jihad against Islam. 

I heard the biggest gift on most neocon's wish list was a video of a muslim being waterboarded.  Not anyone specific, just anybody who looks vagely unamerican.  Another big item is this bumper sticker: 9/11, Yee Fucking Haw, Watch Out You Muslim Towel Head Bastards Because Now You Have Unleashed The Fury Of The United States National Guard, And They Are Going To Kick You And Your Women And Children's Asses Back To The Stone Age All For Your Own Good Because You Are An A-Rab, Lord Have Mercy On Your Heretical Soul, Amen And God Bless America.  Yee Haw!

I hope everyone realizes how outrageos this is. The gross tragedy the republicans have commited against the world by using the memories of the 2998 people that died September 11th, 2001 as an excuse to gain power and influence on the world.  It's disgusting.  The victims of the September 11th terrorist attack have been used politically by the republicans as an excuse to re-elect more conservatives just because they say they are hard on terror.  The real terror is the republican party.  Terrorism is defined as "the systematic use of fear especially as a means of coercion."  That is exactly what the republicans do.  They are sysematically using the attacks of September 11th to strike fear in our hearts and using that as a means of coercion.  I wish the American people would get hard on terror and hunt bush down and try him for the deaths of all the American sevicemen who have died at his hands of his illegal war.

Yes this should be a day of remembrance.  We should remember the innocent people who died on September 11th, 2001.  But we also have a duty to remember all 90,000 people you and I have killed since then in their name.  We elected and then re-elected this murdering asshole bush, which means all that blood is on our hands.  We should remember this so as not to let this happen again.  We should not let our emotions and our prejudice and our greed and our blind support for our party lead us into war ever again.  September 11th should be remembered as the day we tucked our tails between our legs and bowed down to the terrorism of the ruling party and let them have free reign.  The day we let the republican party fuck us because we are afraid of appearing weak.  We should remember this as the day we got fucked by george bush and his war mongering friends.
