|05:45 pm - Websites? We've got Websites!|
Supernova has started a new website: The Daily Cavy! You should check it out every day and get your dose of beautiful Guinea pigs!
Also, you might help her out by clicking that link a lot, cause Google is watching!
As for me, I've been plugging away at my webcomic, which continues to be the GREATEST thing you are not reading every day. Why not check it out at Rocketship A Go-Go?
And on the "geeky news" front, I ran an actual role-playing game the other night. Can you believe it? I've totally given up being Kewl and gone back to being geeky. How shall I impress all the girls now?

Iraq: The First 5 years
There's something odd about the anniversary - lots of (conservative) pundits have articles and interviews, talking about their personal journey and all that. But actual anti-war voices are still mostly outside of the public discourse.
I find this odd.
I mean, I said the war would go badly. I was proven right. Surely people should be asking my opinion about things moving forward, now that I am established as a person who was right about things?
When I am gone, people will say "That Stacey - she was right on the iraq war, right about the war on terror, right about global warming, right about evolution and torture and all those other things - it's too bad she was such a hippie though, you can't blame us for not listening to a hippie!"

Right after 9/11, the very Reverend Jerry Falwell went on national TV and said that God sent us 9/11 because he was mad at America - something about gay people and women having the vote.
Boy, it's a good think Senator Obama didn't go to that church - he might be in trouble now. Can you imagine a religious authority daring to say bad things about America?

|07:39 pm - Age-old dream|
"You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or right, but I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down— up to a man's age-old dream; the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order— or down to the totalitarianism of the ant heap, and regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course."
That's actually a Reagan quote, and he's complaining about how the left is drifting towards totalitarianism - they want government to offer too much security, and so on.
And yet, if you just read the quote for what it says, it sure sounds like a complaint about the current administration, doesn't it?
I'm with Reagan - when a conservative tells you (as Romney did recently) that "Our most basic civil liberty is the right to be kept alive..." (notice the verb "kept") then that age-old dream of the ultimate individual freedom consistent with law and order that Reagan spoke of has been lost.
Let's not trade any more freedom for security - regardless of their good motives, let's step away from their downward course.
No third term.

|10:07 am - Why Republicans are Cowards|
I often find myself at a loss when it comes to politics. I never seem to fit in with the liberals or the conservatives. I always seem to want to fit in with the liberals, but somehow, that generally doesn't work.
So i was very happy to find this post today:
I'm not scared: Why Republicans are Cowards (and why we should say so!)
Because there's more to patriotism than being afraid of your shadow.

Hey - Read my webcomic.
Seriously. I'm no good at selling things, and this is my personal blog, so i feel no need to be circumspect. i work really, really hard at this comic. It dominates my free time and all my other times as well. If you're thinking "no one ever sees Princess Stacey anymore" this is the reason.
And it's really good.
Rocketship A Go-Go is Sci-fi adventure with a light touch. It's a daily webcomic with likeable characters and wondrous mysteries. Its drawn in a crisp, clear style and it has a wonderful mixture of modern and retro Sci-fi sensibilities. Its part 1950's monster movie and part family friendly transfest. Its got handsome tomboys and beautiful androids. Its got values. Its got glamour. It has lizard-men and giant ants and spaceships and testy robots. It puts friendship first.
Our slogan is "Together into the Unknown!" Frankly, the slogan alone should sell you.
Several hundred people read Rocketship A Go-Go every day. Don't you wish you were one of them?
Look at it this way - if a few hundred thousand people read my comic, they will turn it into a big time movie with, like, Devon Aoki and Clea DuVall and Leisha Hailey. And then they will pay me a lot of money and I will be rich. And if I'm rich, I can afford clothes and stuff, and I can go out and you'll see more of me.
Doesn't that sound nice?
So read my damn comic. Then tell all of your friends to read it. Then, send it to all your favorite blogs.
I'll totally owe you one.
