somebody needs to say it: Bush Is Losing It | "Bush is losing it. His composure, his "good-guy" image, the debate about economic policy, the sympathy and support of the international community and, as polls indicate, the backing of the American people."
let's hope this trend continues!
also, check out chris' recent entry regarding the current view of americans, from the point of view of someone studying in london right now, America! I'm One Of Your Kids.
this makes me sick: Bush declares National Sanctity of Human Life Day. further more, this quote proves what is wrong with our fellow americans, "President Bush's pro-life view is clearly grounded in his respect and concern for all people," said Darla St. Martin, associate executive director of the National Right to Life organization.
is this woman completely ignorant, or just plain stupid like good ol' monkeyboy? how can anyone attribute a "respect and concern for all people" when we're about to go bomb the living shit out of the iraqi's? oh wait, i'm sorry, i guess this is read as a "respect and concern for all (rich, white) people". yes, that's it. that REALLY must be it, right?
[while i don't believe abortion is the only way, i am FULLY 100% pro-choice and find this to be EXTREMELY frightening!]
edit - i haven't been reading megnut for awhile, as i tried to personalize my links awhile back, but i visited her site just now and her most recent post mirrors my above sentiments, although she has always been so much more eloquent than i. read her thoughts here.
"War with Iraq is wrong. But if war is prosecuted further in Iraq, we must be prepared to advance the cause of peace in this country. We must be prepared to stand up, to speak out, to organize, to march, to demand an end to the war, or to demand an end to an administration which insists on war."
it's been awhile, and i've been busy. as of tomorrow, i'm back at my own office - I CAN'T WAIT! maybe i can sort out my problems with the site, such as no current archives and busted links - oh boy, can't wait. heh, already fixed - much simpler than i thought. blogger needed to be massaged a bit...
that's right, PHISH is back - i can't wait to see some february shows, including chicago & greensboro!!
i took in many sights of nyc, but could only cover so much ground. i really enjoyed my walk up through central park and a day at the met, with lunch at the E.A.T. deli. shopping was a bit of a nightmare, so that consisted mostly of walking around taking in more sights.
