Being self employed does have it’s advantages. I’m batting .1000 with my predictions regarding the war on terror.
Some 86 percent of them said the world has grown more, not less, dangerous, despite President George W. Bush’s claims that the U.S. is winning the war on terror???
Remember back when Bush was running for re-election and we had all those national security color scares? The red and orange scares that scrambled municipal police departments all over the country in a frantic attempt to stop those ghastly terrorists from destroying us all?
Ever notice how we ALWAYS got a new color scare every time John Kerry had a bounce in the polls? The last serious color scare we got was the week following the Democratic presidential convention.
After Bush was re-elected, we never had another color scare, not even after London was bombed. Not even after Madrid was bombed. Not even after that dire Canadian plot was uncovered last week.
No more terrorist scares, once the Republicans were back in office. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
Anybody with half of their brain cells firing could have predicted that the war on terror was a ghastly mistake and wouldn’t work, only producing more and more terrorists. And that incredibly stupid color chart that was supposed to impress the inhabitants of the Fatherland…
Bush isn’t the first dickwad to scare the public during a campaign year. I don’t wonder about anything. I marvel at the idiocy of the American people and the government itself. They actually had to convene a high level research group to make the above determination. Whose really covering their ass here?
Cheney of course. The power behind the throne. And the other fools in government who are wringing their hands now that little boy blue is against the ropes.
Ah, what’s the point anymore? We all know it’s broken beyond repair. The whole shootin’ match. All we’ve got left is forward momentum, all of it downhill. Not a chance in hell of turning any of this around. It IS all smoke and mirrors, poorly executed for the illusion of the many.
I’m going back to sleep now. This is just more of the same crap, same story, same outcome as ever. If they (or anyone) was really serious, they’d quit their pussyfooting around and get down to business.
