President Bush’s Legacy

Bruce Springsteen and others perform at a celebration of a person whose ideals he shares.
I am still amazed at what oozes through the play-doh factory clip-ons that is the web version of <insert semi-respectable publication name here>. I could add a Kent Brockman quote here but I won’t. :)

This is what I am referring to…

I think a proper summation of this article is, “republicans hold the belief that it’s ok to lead a life of fucking over everyone, if you can donate to charity to make your bio look better”. Lots of collectivists seem to be following this credo.

Oh no! The good guys won the election! We better protect our values (that everyone with a sense of self-worth despise), or failing that, the value of our possessions. BANG! Now I’m a patriot slash national socialist slash dissenting regime replacer.

This Tuesday, Jan 20th, work will stop and I will celebrate with friends the inauguration of a president that will hopefully, despite the prevailing climate in the once great USA, and despite being handed the worst possible “portfolio”, with his obvious intelligence, start an era of repairing the damage his exact opposite did to whatever goodwill the USA had.

Perhaps a smile will return to the face of the earth?
