Thank you Mr. Churchill your saying seems very appropriate.
Here we are... at this point I'm not sure the president can fuck up anything else, but who knows... maybe we'll invade Cuba or he'll authorize the release of radioactive beetles or something... Who knows.
However, what struck me was that some yahoo was on TV blabbering on about how when it was all said and done that Bush would be vindicated in Iraq and that we'd come out of it victors.
Considering the number of American Soldiers killed: Thousands
Considering the number of Iraqi's killed: Hundreds of thousands, if not a million
Considering the money that we've spent: ~1.9 Trillion
Considering what we could have done with that money instead: who knows!
Considering what our country could have done with those Americans who gave their lives serving their country in something that could best be described as a fools errand: Beyond measure.
All I can say is... We'd better fucking win this thing!*
* - "Winning" being that we get the fuck out of there ASAP while we still have a shirt on our back a pan to piss in and a window to throw it out of!
As for things here at home, I'm not sure how much deeper the hole can go... I get the sense that we've hit rock bottom and started digging, but how deep will that be? How many more stimulus checks can the government send out? We're only borrowing against our future, which to me seems utterly insane.
I would much rather we put that money into green public works projects such as TDP and wind farms!
