Our national decider
Today is the birthday of the President of the United States. He turns 60, an age at which I hope to reach, and an age at which, I hope to be a lot wiser than I am today. I fear our president has never had such a thought.

The President's reliance on faith over fact, his intractibility to see views other than his own becomes more frightening on a daily basis. His absolute failure to admit mistakes is not a strength but the weakness of someone who fears his own fallibility. W's lack of real world knowledge is akin to "Let them eat cake." For instance, "As you can possibly see, I have an injury myself—not here at the hospital, but in combat with a cedar. I eventually won. The cedar gave me a little scratch."—After visiting with wounded veterans from the Amputee Care Center of Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 1, 2006.

His faith-based programs are now funding a program in a South African town that promises classes on human anatomy, HIV symptoms and antiretrovirals contingent on study of the Gospel of John. I wrote an article about it here.

Our national decider feels so entitled that he finally had to be chastised by the Supreme Court and reminded that he is not above the law. What a wonderful independence day gift to all of us.


Stumble It!

Ditto. In addition to his abuse of our native language, his smugness irks me to no end.

Oh Canada...

Mostly I just want to punch him in his stupid face. And I am not normally a violent person (much).

All I have to say is that we are in scary times girl...scary times.

Darcy's comment cracks me up!
