Can This Be True?

This clip is amazing and depressing. If true, it leaves me wondering if we now have a Bush III in office.

Think about it. The same policies as Bush; just under a new name - and, if this video is true (his awful budget is), taken to a greater extreme. Only this time, the guy who's making this stuff up is intelligent, articulate, and charismatic.

Scary.

I picked it up on a right-wing blog, so who knows? It's Rachel Maddow, though, not Rush, so I'm inclined to believe it.

Unfortunately.

Thanks for posting that; it was very interesting. I read something on the Afghan war this morning and I was going to talk to you about that.
I personally think that the President receives a lot of top secret information about terrorist plots that causes them to be engaged in war. And for them the decision is, if they don't take these measures to protect the US, then America will be attacked. Now the ethics of all of it, that is the tough question.

Hi Girl,

Yesterday he proposed a bill to make it illegal to not have health insurance--something the Republicans would not have done. If this bill passes, I'll be illegal since I've never been able to afford insurance.

sigh,
the fun never stops. The irony is that their booking all the fines from people like me as income rather than helping us get insurance.

yeah, I need a Seda fix, but I'll call and wish Trin happy b day. Maybe email...

hugs
me

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
Beloved's.
