Iran??

Frickin' Bush! So now we're changing direction and focusing on Iran??

I am really pissed over this. It's like there is no end to this war in sight. I thought that our soldiers were supposed to come back once their voting took place?

Two months ago, I lost a childhood friend (who was also a very good friend of my brother's) to the war. From what I learned, he was supposed to come home to his family any day now. One of my brother's best friends is over there now. So are a couple of my cousins. This is happening every day. Yet, it has been put to the back burner in the news. Every day families are devastated by the loss of a child, a brother, a sister, a wife, a husband, a relative, a friend to this war.

You know what stays in my mind - why didn't Bush send one of his daughters over there? Oh yeah, they're too busy falling on the floor in some club, drunk and oblivious to anything else. Yep - it makes sense to me. Let's just send everyone's else loved one over there.

So much money is being spent on this war,and yet there is no money for education, for rebuilding poor towns, for feeding the poor.

Every time I open a tabloid or a paper and see one of the Bush twins dirty dancing, wasted to the core, I think about how lucky they are to not have a care in the world because they will always be protected while I pray every day for my family and the world.

I should be careful what I post, though. Now that I know we're being spied on, who knows who will come knocking on my door in the middle of the night? Heck, I may even accidentally get shot with a pellet because I was mistaken for a ....rabbit...

Amelia,
I am so sorry to hear about your friend. My exboyfriend's little brother is/was over there and same with my friend's husband. Thanks for writing an honest post on this subject.

Amelia,
I understand your grief and fear. I had a cousin who made it back safely thank God. He was in Fallujah for almost 2 years. I too have given up on Bush. I think he is the biggest mistake in the U.S. Presidency. A little tip for you... don't go hunting with the Vice President you may be mistaken for a Quail. Keep your spirits up. Anyone you know who wants to join the military, do everything you can to alter their thinking. I would rather make bagels the rest of my life than die in any kind of war.

War is stupid even if it is against your stalking neighbor! (wink wink) :)

I know! I posted about Karl Rove yesterday and people in DC are emailing a link to the post. It is creepy! Some mail program from the US Sentencing Commission hit the post. What the heck are they?!?!

Ahhh....

But we have to talk about all the madness of King George or we won't be America anymore.

I just keep a list of all the IP numbers that hit the blog from posts like that. Maybe I should mail it out to family every so often in case I disappear one day.

Hey there, just stopping by to check on you. You're either buried in reading or in writing. Whichever it is, hope you're well. :)
