Someone Take The Wheel

  Picosecond Hits Paydirt!

Rule of law you know....(p.s. Rule of Law! Rule of Law! Rule of Law! -- Just in case you forgot.)

The latest Bush-Cheney TV ad "Forward" http://www.georgewbush.com/tvads/
features several military personnel performing duties while wearing
their official uniforms. There are several shots of soldiers carrying
rifles, a shot of seaman launching a plane from a flight deck, a shot
of a soldier flying a helicopter, etc.

It's a blatant violation of military regulations for any military personnel
to promote any sort of political message while wearing an official US
uniform. And as Commander-in-chief, it's a violation of military regulations
for President Bush to direct or cause any member of the military to violate
those regulations.

The specific Army rule that covers this issue can be found on page 8
of Chapter 1 in Army Regulation 670-1, Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms
and Insignia:

Rip out the table
we need room to move
in a life unstable
you're so easily amused
anywhere you hang
yourself is home
throw in a tape, fix the tone

The windows are dirty let's hope it rains
add another newspaper
something to do with my change
I see we're fighting again
In some fucking land
throw in another tape man

Someone take the wheel
and I don't know where we're going
anybody say what you feel
everybody's sad, but nobody's showing
