It is 9:11 P.M.

I'm sick and tired
of people insisting
that what is,
is not,
and
what is not,
is.

I was saying this very same thing last night -- but, not quite so creatively.

Cool post.

BG: Thanks for saying so.

I had posted some stuff about the hurricane on a small list of music fans, about 100 people or so and got some flack from the verbal 2 or 3 neocons on that list, and they had so damn many stupid, idiotic things to say. Just the same old cliché arguments and it really wore me out. I can't stand it when people act as if this is 1996 politics as usual. When they act like Bush has done nothing wrong and it is just the usual criticisms from the cranky left. It is freaking me out because I felt like this 6 months after 9/11, and so much has gone wrong since then, the war, the lies, the economy, the pandering to the religious fanatics, anti-evolution, anti-stem-cell research, the gutting of any sort of help for the poor, the relaxation of the environmental laws, the tax incentives for corporations to move jobs offshore, the cronyism, the ripping off of the government by the cronies and still they are rewarded with even more lucrative contracts, the outing of Plame by Rove, and now Katrina. I mean, what did he get right? Not a damn thing. Not one thing.

I really can't imagine anyone looking at this presidency and honestly believing that he is doing a fair job, let alone a good one. I know if Gore had done such a poor job, I would admit it. I probably wouldn't vote for a republican, but I would damn well criticize ANYONE who did to our country what Bush and his buddies have done.

But then they'd all have to admit they were wrong, Al! Just try picturing that event.

Bush & Cheney couldn't even fire Brown outright. They had to pressure him to resign.

Brown says in his resignation statement that now everyone can focus on what's 'going right.'

I guess if Rummy were to resign, then we wouldn't have to worry ourselves about torture and inadequate protection for our troops. We could just focus on all those good things happening in Iraq.

I hate this administration. I really do.

I know I know. And their minions try to make us feel guilty about it. They always say, "you just hate Bush!" which is true. I now say, "yep, why don't you?" or, "yeah but he made me!"

What really irks me is that they are projecting. The truth was they hated Clinton, but the reason they hated him was because he was right! They couldn't stand that the economy thrived with progressive taxes on the rich! He exposed their economics as the sham that it is. And sadly, we now know that in spades.

Jill,

That was a great link -- thanks.

God I want a spontaneous protest to erupt -- all of us who feel this way -- to storm on SOMETHING! and let our voices be heard -- We tend to talk to each other in these little boxes --

I wish we were all out in the streets...
