It's like deja vu all over again....

Can someone tell me when we, as the American people, are finally going to get fed up with the idiot-in-chief? I'm serious....

Now it's Iran who supports Hamas, Hezbollah, is pursuing WMDs, etc. Didn't we just go through this four years ago?

And if, as the most corrupt, incompetent administration in the history of the country now claims, we are fighting for democracy in the Middle East, why are we so determined to demonize groups that, while I think they are despicable, have actually been brought to power in elections that are actually more fair than the last two presidential elections in our own beloved democracy?

As I watch the Bush administration continue to dismantle our Constitution, I can't help but wonder -- why is it that the Democrats, moderate Republicans, and independents still allow this bullshit? It just makes me want to puke.

Yes, 9/11 was one of probably the two most catastrophic days in our history. I lost two very good friends that day, and it pissed me off. Yet when I hear rhetoric such as, "if we don't fight them there, we'll have to fight them here," I wonder why we don't seem to have a single politician in the country willing to stand up and be counted. Let's face it, from the 50's through the 80's we actually had an enemy who had the power to destroy us. We defeated them. And we all know that while the fanaticists in the Middle East have the power to inflict damage -- and possibly some severe damage -- on us, they do not, by any stretch of the imagination have the power to destroy us as the Soviet Union did.

In fact, it seems to me that the most dangerous thing my beloved country faces -- and I speak as a disabled vet -- is the administration currently in power which seems determined to eliminate the Constitution. And why 28% of the country still supports them is absolutely beyond me.

But hell, I guess it really doesn't matter in the long run. We're raising a generation of idiots, as Miss Teen South Carolina has amply demonstrated, and it is surely more important for Bubba, Billy Bob and all the other 28% who still continue to blindly support our idiot-in-chief to worry about how Michael Vick's woes will affect their fantasy football team.

I'm sorry, this is the first time in a while that this pissed off vet has posted, but I'm more sorry that no one seems to give a crap.

By the way, we lost a few more soldiers today. I guess that doesn't really matter to most folks in this country.

The least corrupt is a shade lighter than the most D. Ask the ones who send the boys to become killers how they sleep?

Yep we've gone thru it since democracy turned to shit 37 years ago for me.

Don't know why folks believe D. Maybe they're scared. Maybe because the only city thats supposed to matter is Cleveland.

Our party is weak. The war.

It matters very much to me.

Every day that this occupation drags on weighs heavily on my heart. The sadness is unbearable.

Republican --- Democrat --- whatever --- they're all useless. I'm no damn kid (63), but I'm ready to fight. Fight for the America I grew up in. Fight for the priciples that I thought this country stood for.
I may have white hair, but my back is still strong and my aim is still true. I have 8 grandchildren who will grow up in Amerika unless we put an end to this nonsense.
Let's get this country out of the toilet before someone (GWB) flushes it.
