Back to Bush

NSA wiretaps reminds me of my own preface. At first there is balance, as in checks and balances between subsections of the government, and all live in harmony. And then comes a situation that appears like it is balanced, but hides a secret imbalance. And then there's the fall.

Just like that, there may be evidence of a fall. We will see. The NSA thing is scary enough, but if the government is actually looking specifically at Dana Priest's phone records, then we are past harmony.

Read the fringe and disturbing opinions that are posted there. I find these comments only slightly less disturbing than the content of the post.

I posted myself. Essentially, Bush has turned America into a country with which I am not familiar. These posters do not share what I consider one of the chief American values, found in our bill of rights, of freedom of the press. One writes, "This only helps our enemies and right now I believe ABC news is an enemy of the US."

If anyone doesn't like the behavior of the free press (personally, I think they're finally waking up and they've been asleep over the last 5 years) in this country, then perhaps they would like a country that has no free press. North Korea and Iran are two that come to mind. Enjoy the move.

Stay tuned to this story. Bush is our Nixon.

If Bush's ending is the same as Nixon's than my wish will be fullfilled.

Nixon was a peach compared to Bush.

Currently our nation is in a deep depression ( not financial but mental) and we don't even know it.

Our hope for the future is as gray as our GD New England weather.

Democrats still don't have a candidate...why is this so difficult?

Don't we have our own buffoon that could win?
