"America is not at war ... America is at the mall."

"America is not at war.
The Marine Corps is at war;
America is at the mall."

post 9-11 Americans have largely forgotten what started this whole thing. With the average American's focus on "ME ME ME" and "Entertain Me Now" clearly they (and I say THEY because though I'm an American, I'm not one of THOSE Americans) don't have the attention span of a 4 year old child..

Thank your beloved George Bush for that. After 9/11, he had the opportunity to ask us all to sacrifice. What did he ask? He asked us to GO SHOPPING.

I think when history looks back on the utter failure of his Presidency, that will be the defining moment in which he had more opportunity to do good than any other President in American history, and he blew it in an almost cartoonishly bad way.

He is the first President to grant tax giveaways to the rich during fact, to grant any tax reductions in wartime. This entire war is financed by China and other foreign owners of our national debt. Bush has charged it to our children and grandchildren...if our economy doesn't collapse before they can re-pay it.

And chickehawks like Lieberman, Cheney, and Bush aren't even teaching their children that Daddy's war is important enough to fight themselves. Just send other people's children. Make other people pay and sacrifice. It's horrible.

You're welcome ... for your freedom and safety the past five years when no bombs have exploded on you or planes have flown into buildings again.

You're welcome ... that you can live in the best country in the world, a country that spends more money and time to help humanity worldwide than any other, a country that allows you to rant and doesn't throw you in jail like Sadam Hussein did with dissidents in Iraq, a country that encourages women to excel instead of treating them like property as seen under the Taliban before the U.S. went into that country.

You're welcome ... to live in safety because of our volunteer military, men and women who do a job because they signed up to do it. They are protecting your ungrateful neck.

You're welcome ... even though you are part of the problem with our country ... part of the "me, me, me" people who can't get beyond their talking points and hatred of President George W. Bush.

But that's okay because I won't stop working to make this country better which means I will be working against you.

SWAC. I appreciate your Zeal but extra renditions and loss of habeau corpus means the U.S. is no better than Iraq as a model of democracy. Ask the victims you've tortured in the name of your freedom and not theirs. How could you be so selfish not to take a more than binary approach. The mall is the best place for that sort of intellectual debate.
