You know, I’m really starting to get sick of President Bush.
Now, I realize that isn’t going to come as a surprise to most of you. I didn’t vote for him, I don’t believe he is our legal president, and even knowing what I know now I wish Al Gore was in office to have dealt with our current state of affairs. However, I thought he did an admirable job of pulling the country together after September 11th. He said what needed to be said at the time, and he took steps to attempt to insure that it wouldn’t happen again. For that, I applaud him.
I am, however, getting absolutely fed up with the Terrorism bullshit.
Today, President Bush met with the nine miners that were trapped up in Pennsylvania for three days. He took this event as an opportunity to push his anti-terrorism agenda. I’m sorry, but can someone tell me exactly how in the hell nine touch son of a bitches surviving some horrid conditions relates to our “struggle” against terrorism? I hate to say it, but I really think we are heading down a road of ruin with this whole war on terrorism. More and more, we are hearing from our elected leaders about the “radical” steps we are going to have to take to make sure these events aren’t going to happen again, and the more I see them talk about it the more frightened I get.
Oh, and the icing on the cake in this situation for me is the fact that the miners weren’t allowed to talk to the media, because they have each signed exclusive $150,000 movie deals with Disney for the rights to their story.
Yep, that’s the Spirit of America all right.
