This site provides an outlet for my observations and personal musings about current events, politics, business, sports, family, and anything else that comes to mind. If you agree that's great, but if you disagree and want to engage in intellectual debate that's even better.
More good news that shows that Bush is winning his personal war on poverty. He has successfully raised the poverty rate for the fourth straight year by helping move more than a million people below the poverty line.
For those of you who are keeping score at home - here is a tally of the costs of Iraq. Add to this the more significant loss of life of American soldiers and throw in the injured and the tens of thousands of Iraqi casualties and Bush can really take some pride. I suppose when Iraq officially takes away the rights of women, becomes an Islamic state, and then falls into civil war Bush will have really done something special and his legacy will be complete. Based on the latest polls, at least it appears that Americans are finally getting it.
They signed Benson which should solidify their running game (although I like Thomas Jones - a Cavalier), and I like the move to Kyle Orton. We know what Hutchinson can do (very little) and Orton has stepped up big for a rookie. Having Jeff Blake as a backup is also a much better situation than last year. Orton will make his mistakes, but at least he has some upside. Oh if he could just be this year's Roethlisberger my Super Bowl dreams will come true! They certainly have the defense for it.
Bush hails Iraqi Constitution! What the F%$# is he talking about?
It looks like the Iraqi Constitution is in trouble, which is probably a good thing given that it basically sets up an Islamic state that diminishes the rights of women. Given that the U.S. is now fighting for Iraqi democracy (whatever that means), it should give us pause that American soldiers are dying to set up West Iran which will likely be ruled by Shiite Muslim clerics.
Oh how tedious it must be for Bush to actually have to think about bin Laden. Hey, everyone needs a vacation - five weeks off should be enough to refresh him so that he can think about getting back to work.
Although most Americans probably don't really care, Iraq is still a problem.
