Georgia Isn't Just For Peaches Anymore

What's funny about this is that we, i.e., the DFHs, were correct about Bu$hCo's bullshit way back in the day. & now the world just smirks & keeps the tanks rolling when this president, speaking for all Americans, yells at the wind. It's like Lear, only without the tragedy & art.
This is why most people over the age of nine learn that issuing a bunch of threats and failing to carry them through --- or following through and failing to succeed --- is a recipe for people to stop taking you seriously. Bush and Cheney (and now McCain) have made a fetish out of sabre rattling for the past eight years and the results have been, shall we say, less than stellar. The US has shown that its volunteer military, while valiant, is undermanned and overstretched, its intelligence services are willing servants of political manipulators and its leadership is dishonest, immoral and incompetent. It's understandable that somebody out there would think that now is the time to make a move. That it would be Bush's soul brother Pooty-poot was entirely predictable.

Was lucky to find an opening at the John Birch Society table on Friday at the Iowa State Fair. I asked them about wind energy and pointed out that in the 70's oil crisis when people that Mr Creek sometimes refers to as DFHs were promoting wind and solar energy, the Birchers were saying that it was just a communist plot. When I drove down I35 to go to the fair, there are many areas that are wall to wall wind mills. Have we had a sudden influx of communist Dutch to cure this springs flooding? Or has some communist utility company brought in wind generators in the dark of night right under the Birchers noses?

He had no explanation, said he was sorry and that it would never happen again. He then asked if I would join in their crusade against The New World Order. It was necessary to decline his offer because I wasn't sure if there was an Old World Order and at this point I would go along with Any World Order.
