End of Terrorism?

If you were to ask an average red stater, "What is the number one problem facing the US at the moment," there's a good chance they'd tell you its terrorism. Is that correct? Because I suspect that while terrorism will continue to be a problem, it is certainly not a problem on the level on the level of other threats to America: starting with the British, going through a civil war, facing down communism. I suspect terrorism, in the grand sum of history, will not rise out of other present threats and general problems of the US: financial problems of macro and micro economic conditions, environmental problems including global warming, health care, and education.

That would have been impossible to say 3 years ago, but it very well may be the case. On the notion, however, that terrorism is the leading threat (and not only leading, on a higher level of threat altogether), Bush has frightened the nation into a pre-emptive war. He has spied on Americans without warrents. And he's taken a lot of vacation.

But what will happen when terrorism goes back to a low level of buzz, periodically rising in intensity? The platform that's been used and abused by Bush will be shown to be a foundation made of paper.

Just one more piece of paper with BULLSHIT written on it, that floats to the ground hitting the already formed pile.

I'm sick to death and filled to the gills with this right wing pro Bush propaganda slash talking-points. I can't believe he hasn't been "removed" from office in some foul way as of yet.

When will the madness end? It's making me literally, physically ill. I have to go to the video clip of Cheney in N.O. where a bright heckler tell's him "F.U. Mr. Cheney" in order to recover my sensibilities enough to go on.

Funny, put BULLSHIT is an acronym for BUSH LLIT - even if there's a double l, it about sums it up for me. Bullshit, Bush lit, it's all the same and I'm sick of it.
