Don't Believe the HYPE


The stakes are high. The midterm elections offer us a real chance. A chance to reinstate the checks and balances into our government. Our complaining can amount to a shake up. Nothing revolutionary, just lettin the administration know that they can't do whatever they fancy. I'm not saying Obama is our savior, I'm saying we can change the current trajectory.

"My administration will carefully consider any proposal that will help us achieve victory." What happened to "stay the course?" The cover may have changed, but the contents remain the same.

While we're "winning" over there, more than
one hundred of my young brothers and sisters have died. While we've been barraged with negative ad campaigns, mudslinging, and partisan politics, one hundred of my young brothers and sisters have died. The clusterfuck continues:
no plan + too few troops = too many casualties. Unfortunately, too many casualties will mean more troops. More troops in a war without endpoints will equal more casualties. YOU do the math.

"Absolutely, we're winning," Bush said. "As a matter of fact, my view is the only way we lose in Iraq is if we leave before the job is done." "As General Casey reported yesterday in Iraq, 'the men and women of the Armed Forces... have never lost a battle in over three years in the war.'"

We've lost thousands of wars, but we're winning the battle. What does that mean to the family of the deceased?

Rhetoric sells. Just ask
Halliburton, Gyrocam, McDonnell Douglas Corp., L3 Vertex Aerospace, etc, etc, etc.....

My new thing with these cats is this: If we're winning why should we be scared. Also, why have we forgotten what FDR said nothing to fear, but fear itself? It's funny how we should only be scared when it's time to vote. Remember how we were supposed to keep shopping and not be scared right after 9/11.
