Don't want to see it. Don't want to hear it. Don't want to believe it. These are the words that are guiding our country now. Gone is "home of the brave,” or "for liberty and justice for all." When did we become a country so afraid that we would rather believe the promise of an alcoholic, AWOL asshole, (love alliteration) than to believe what we see and hear?

Today's presidential press conference was a joke, as usual, but when discussing the possibility of an avian flu outbreak, Bush brought up something, so matter of factly, that it didn't raise the eyebrows it should have. He said that in the event of such a flu epidemic, the military might be called on to control the situation, as in overseeing the quarantine of infected individuals. WHAT? We should know from experience that if you give this administration an inch they hit you over the head and take the whole highway! Giving the power of enforcing quarantine is just another way of saying, "MARTIAL LAW!" And no, I'm not a conspiracy buff, I'm just using my common sense based on what I see, what I hear and what I believe.

This administration has too much power to let it go. Have you ever seen a dog protecting a juicy meat bone? That's what we've got here. On my bad days, I feel we are fighting a losing battle, that in the real world, evil will conquer good. On my good days, I think, maybe today will be the day the tide will turn and I wait for it to do so. Today is a bad day.
