When you are pro-war even the abortion doctors call you "baby-killer."

Snow Day

Since it Snowed somewhere in the world the county has closed its schools today and I am stuck at home with everybody.

So I am sitting in front of the computer ignoring them all, this is MY snow day too.

In honor of snow day: Think of a anti-war/nuclear proliferation slogan from the 80's. If you are too young to remember, well sit down and let the grownups handle this, skippy. Play your XBox or watch music videos, m'kay?

I remember this one really strongly for some reason: "You can't hug your child with NUCLEAR ARMS"

They managed to link The Children to nuclear weapons development and deployment during the Cold War very succinctly.

Here's Another. Best Cold War paranoia movie: Red Dawn

This one wasn't the typical Nuclear War Destroys the Earth. This was even worse, invasion and occupation, by Mexicans! The premise was kinda flimsy as the areas invaded were staunchly pro-2nd Amendment and I doubt they'd just flee or get locked up in concentration camps like that. Plus the ineffectual nature of *all* military bases, at the height of the cold war, located in the Eastern part of the country was absurd as well.

Still it was a damn scary thought. Many times I looked out the window at school waiting to see parachutes dropping down from the sky after seeing that movie.

I guess the sad part is that after Sept. 11, 2001 it was the sight and sound of aircraft that made (some of) us twitchy as we look up to the sky.

Enjoy your snow day.
