The 'War' President and Homeland Security

First off, I am tired of the President ( and his media contingent) referring to him as a 'War-time President.' This country is not at war. The only way we would be at war is if Congress had declared war. Yes, the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military, and the military has been deployed in to combat situations, but the country is not at war.

Second is the ridiculous statement that is constantly being made about 'fighting them there so we don't have to fight 'em here.' I guess this will be the justifications for why the money for Homeland Security is being wasted. (This is based on the report by the 9/11 commission.)

I really am tired of the propaganda mill that we call an administration. This administration seems to think that the American people are sheep. They also don't seem to want to believe that the majority of this country could actually disagree with them less than a year after winning the 'stunning' victory that gave them the mandate they claim they have.

Yes, Jr. did poll better than 50% of the votes cast, but 51% or 52% really doesn't qualify as a mandate.

I think it is time for this administration to wake up and realize that they work for us, that we don't exist for them to minipulate. This will not likely happen, because this administration is convinced it can make no mistakes and that it is always right.

The President, and his staff, seem to only make speeches to Republican audiences. Why? More than likely because they are afraid of not speaking to those who they know agree with them.

Oh, Well. The election is only 11 months away. Hopefully the Democrats will get their act together and win at least one of the Houses of Congress. If nothing else that should shake this administrations sense of strenghth and moral outrage when people disagree with them. It will likely also weaken the religious rights control on the party and begin to normalize the dialog in this country.

Well time to go for the day. Have a good evening and stay safe.
