You get what you elect

I remember 6 years ago when George Bush was running for President that it was great that here was a guy who wasn't going to change his opinion according to pollsters like Bill Clinton had done. Now I see the error of my thinking. A man who is thinking changes his opinion and his position according to the facts and the situation. Accordingly, George Bush is not thinking. Not only is it stupid to have a company based in the United Arab Emirates running America's ports, it is dangerous. I don't think the people in Dubai are bad folks. In fact, Dillyberto and Mr. Clio both spent some time there when they were younger. However, I do question the intelligence of allowing a country through which funds were funneled for the 9/11 hijackers to be running our ports. And now GWB won't back down. You get what you elect. Especially if that person feels like he has a mandate from God.

Would you please just trust the man?

He said for you to trust him, so you should trust him. It's just that simple. Period.

I've been thinking of this year's Mardi Gras as a much-needed catharsis. There's just been no time to grieve everything that's been lost, and without grief, hearts just can't heal.
