I actually cried when the outcome became clear. I am one of many folks seriously considering a move to Canada or Mexico.  Sure wish Canada was warmer.  **thank** Kyoto, bring on the CFC's!

 

Let's see, with two wars going on (the larger one absoutely unnecessary and ongoing), horrific job losses in the deciding midwestern states, outrage over the stolen selection in 2000 of the only president to enter office with a criminal record who went AWOL during wartime, a four year record of ignoring the needs of most Americans in favor of hoping his wealthy benefactors, no-bid Halliburton contracts, protections for conspiring oil and drug companies that screw the Americans daily, etc. etc.

 

But Americans picked the reformed boozer and coke fiend who talks about Jesus but never goes to church over the former alter boy who attends services weekly, volunteered and served in times of war and peace, and showed contientious thoughtfulness throughout his entire life because of their 'morals'

 

Morals - that means they are against stem cell research to heal the desperately ill because they are against abortion and it is more important for them to save an eight cell zygote than to try to cure Alheimers or paralysis (even when the fertilized eggs come from fertility clinics and are never going to implanted no matter what, they'll be discarded)!  And they are against gay marriage because if they had their way, there would be no gays (or abortions, even though there always have been gays and abortions and there always will be, regardless of whatever the law says. 

 

The only difference is that when not legalized abortion is much more dangerous as is the life of a gay person)

 

Obviously, democracy is overrated.  I think they just voted for Bush because his name is easier to spell.

 

On the other hand, you should read what Michael Moore says on the subject.

You might ad that this morals b.s. was simply something that Rove & Company sold to the gullible voters to distract them from four years of failed policies.

 

They were asleep at the wheel taking long vacations while a memo about Bin Laden planning to attack America by hijacking planes sat on the oval office desk prior to 9/11.

 

Their entire economic policy is to give tax cuts to the wealthy and wait for it to trickle down (gee, what else tends to trickle down, such as down one's leg?). Ever heard of David Stockman? He's the guy who promoted this same failed economic policy to Reagan and then later wrote a book stating that it was all b.s.

 

I should quit now because I could go on and on.

 

I predict that this war in Iraq, this unnecessary and unprovoked war, WILL NOT END IN OUR LIFETIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Judge Bork (not one of my favorite people) wrote a book called SLOUCHING TOWARDS GOMORRAH. A book on the GWB years ought to be called BUMBLING TOWARDS ARMAGEDDON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
