Well I haven't been weighing in on this yet because I have a dog that loves to ride in the back of my truck, and stick his head out into the wind. He doesn't care if I go 70 miles an hour or not, he just puts his head down a little and lets the wind ride over his head, flapping his lips and ears and squinting more as I go faster with the biggest grin on his face. His day isn't complete without a ride in the back of the truck. Someone told me they love the sound of the wind rushing by, that primitive thing from the wolf days. I naturally chain him up so he won't fall out and he can only put his head out past the side of the truck and I have a cap for it that he can stick his head out of too, but I don't tie him up when the caps on. He's 12 years old and part wolf so I guess he just gravitated to that free spirit thing. When he was younger and got into a running gallop you could see the sheer joy in his face.
Anyway, I went off to check out that David Kuo guy Channel Zero posted and it was a lesson in partisanship and selective reasoning for sure. He barely mentions the fact that Iraq and Afghanistan are draining the funds that could have been used to pay for these initiatives, choosing instead to ignore the fact that Bush is spending money over there to kill poor peeople with the very money he could be using to save poor people in this country. So it's a win/win situation for the lying bastard. he gets to kill poor people all over the world so why should America be exempt. I mean, even Michael Moore states that 80,000 people die in America every year because they can't afford health care. That figure doesn't include the sicknes that other people live with because of poor nutrition and health problems but manage to survive from dumpster diving etc. Long enough to suffer through a full life. Of course he goes right for the LIBERALS as the problem. Never mind that what Bush is proposing is favoratism to groups that are already tax free!! Free meeting at the Blackhouse so they can learn what Bush wants from then. Shall we say, "Theologians Under Hitler" all over again? I thought we'd said AMEN to that book!!
Secular liberal advocacy and interest groups attacked every little thing the faith initiative did. When Executive Orders were issued permitting an organization to simply display a cross or a Star of David, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State called it "a crusade to bring about an unprecedented merger of religion and government."
The greatest issue is the one of ommisiion and that involves the Elephant Iraq and the global war on the poor- oops I mean terrah. What a joke this article is. I like how he went throught the pains of disappointment from the disconnect between what Bush says about faith and helping the poor and what he actually does. The poor poor man was shattered and on the verge of a mental breakdown from the strain, when he decided to throw it all away and go bass fishing.
Too bad he wasn't the lure if he thinks he can reel us in when we bite on that bullshit.
Bush believe in god? Ha ha ha ha- how stupid do you have to be to believe that? Ask Bush- he laughs at us all the time with that stupid smirk on his apelike face. I tell you, he's suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome-his father and mother are career alcoholics and these people only care about feeding their addictions- greed.
Channel Zero nailed it when he said they eat each other. Like the rich, it's the only thing these fundies and flakes are good for.
