Happy trails,

It is with profound sadness that I must bid you all adieu. The end of all time and space is upon us and I just want to say goodbye before the universe collapses inward upon itself. George W Bush took responsibility for a failure of the federal government today, so the end must be near.

HA! Come on laugh it’s funny.

Anyway, before you either blackout from shock or slap GWB silly patting him on the back let me point out three facts.

He’s the commander-in-chief; of course it’s his responsibility. Whatever happened to the buck stops here? Has our current political climate become so pathetically partisan that we defend our politicians like this? If we’ve come to this in our government, that the president has to remind us that he’s in charge and the failings of the government ultimately are his, then I worry.

He took responsibility for the mistakes of the federal government. That is good. But, if and when an in depth independent investigation happens you can bet your bottom dollar the spin doctors will do their damnedest to push as much attention as possible on the mistakes of the local and state governments. Gov. Blanco and Mayor Nagin welcome to the vertigo that is the spin doctoring of American politics.

Bush is liar. He consistently says that he doesn’t govern by poll numbers. He’s even admitted he doesn’t read the newspapers. Yet, as soon as the pools indicated he was as popular as brussel sprouts in the school cafeteria, he changed. Just yesterday he was snapping at reporters about now was not the time to play the blame game. Well all of the sudden he’s taking the blame. Gee, I wonder why.

Good night and good luck,

Though undestand your pessism I don't agree. This is a democracy and the people need to make their voices heard. This war was fought for no good reason at all and we hae no business in Iraq, no matter what Bush trys to make us believe.

Protesting and being an activist in not whining as you say. Was the civil rights movement whining? How about women's sufferage? How about the movements for worker's rights?

If we are to be a strong democracy the people need to make their voices heard. If that means riding a bus all night to DC or writing your congressman or local newspaper or getting a blog, so be it. Silence is suicide in a democracy.

I have given money to the relief efforts for Huricane Katrina but my current job prevents me from taking off enough time to do any work for hurricane relief.
