Thinking fast

Stories like this make me want to give it all up and go live on a deserted island somewhere.

Of course, so did yesterday's unexpected snowstorm, an unwelcome shock to a city previously basking in the warmth of an early spring.

And what about this?

"I would like to outlaw contraception...contraception is disgusting people using each other for pleasure." -Joseph Scheidler, Pro-Life Action League

You really can't have a reasonable discussion with someone that disturbed.

I'm disturbed about why this man is at the head of a quasi-serious political group instead of in therapy.

I'm not as worried by the radical appointments. After November, we can hope the new president will accept the resignations of these people.

I don't know if the expansion of NATO will turn out to be a good thing or a bad thing in the long run, but it's oddly moving to me to see these former Soviet satellites as a part of the organization originally formed to oppose the Soviet Union.

On the other hand, Condaleeza Rice says she can't testify in public because no one has ever done it before. She doesn't seem to see herself as a trendsetter. (Mind you, I'm not convinced she should testify, but it's an issue worth considering.)

Also, the Bush re-election campaign thinks it's wrong to politicize the bible but what semantic trickery they use to convince themselves that's not what their guy is doing is a mystery to me.

I told you so. I told you they'd done it in the past. I told you they were probably going to do it again. And now, it seems they're doing it (Anyone who thinks Nader hasn't become a ridiculous pawn in national politics, think again.)

And now, I must start my hour-long drive to my two-hour training session before I make the one-hour drive back to the office and, in passing, let me thank the dimwit who scheduled this in the middle of the day, forcing me to miss lunch and spend half the day in my car. Let me know if I can do the same for you one day.

Bush, Cheney & this Administration aren't capable of telling the truth about anything connected with this war in Iraq & the so-called WMD's that were never found, nor the deception & misappropriation of funds approved by Congress to fight this war, or almost anything else concerning domestic issues & the US economy & these lists are long. Just for starters, the outrageous prices we're paying at the pumps for their own self interest & political advantage in the fall, when the Saudi's increase production & lower costs prior to the November election. This whole administration is based on lies & deception of American citizens & our men & women serving in the military, some making the ultimate sacrifice for an invasion in this country where there was no real justification. Not only have we sacrificed the lives of our own men & women in uniform, but also those of thousands & thousands of innocent Iraqi citizens, destroyed their homeland & devastated the lives of so many families, as well as placed a tremendous tax burden on our own taxpayers which will be endured for many generations to come. Once we were a nation that attained & considered to be amongst those highest respected in the world, but are no longer. Perhaps some of these facts will be written in our history books, along with the legacy of the Bush/Cheney Administration perceived as one of the worst failures this country has ever witnessed.
