On the Four-Year Anniversary of September 11

The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. By December 7, 1945, the U.S. had kicked the collective asses of the fascists in Japan and Germany. Does the Bush Administration expect us to believe that Osama bin Laden is a more formidable foe than the war machines of Hitler and Emperor Hirohito combined? There has yet to be any justice for the three thousand-plus Americans who were killed in the bombings.

Meanwhile, we have close to 2,000 American dead and and countless more innocent Iraqi dead in Iraq, where the Neo-con power-grab has devolved into mounting chaos. And worldwide terrorist attacks reached an all-time high last year.

It's no surprise that conservatives think it's okay to put an idiot in office, and other unqualified morons in charge of government functions like FEMA. After all, they don't believe it's the role of government to help people, so it's okay if our leaders are incompetent, right? Because it's not like the country might ever need actual leadership or anything...

How long is it going to take ordinary Americans to become utterly disgusted with these carbetbagging scumbags, and for the names of Bush and his cohorts to be thoroughly reviled? Because even though I don't believe Bush actually won either the 2000 or 2004 election, both were close enough for Karl Rove's machine to steal -- and today, the fourth anniversary of September 11 (which all those clueless bozos with their "Support Our Troops" bumperstickers assure everyone they will "never forget"), there are actually Yahoos on the National Mall and elsewhere, cheering for the blatantly corrupt and contemptible administration of the worst President ever.

Thoughts and prayers for the people of New Orleans and their lovely unique city for the natural and man-made catastrophes that they have had to endure. If there is a silver lining to the tragedy -- how much of it could have been averted, and how many lives saved, through competent leadership? -- it is that Hurricane Katrina might persuade the nation to reject the conservative lie that government cannot and should not help ordinary citizens, and exists only to restrict individual liberties and redistribute our tax dollars to the already-haves.

If we don't start demanding that our government spend tax dollars to improve and safeguard the lives of regular citizens, New Orleans will surely be just the first disaster of the coming century, for it reveals just how much conservatives value ordinary American lives.
