So let's see . . .

Joe was just like a Fox news host.
After 9/11, we attacked the wrong country. (And we don't care; odd, that.)

And now, in the midst of the worst economic crisis in living memory, the government has attacked the wrong problem. We don't have a deficit problem or a debt ceiling problem; we have a demand problem. And the reason no one has money to spend is because they don't have jobs. The plan just enacted by congress will make both these situations worse, not better. After long debate, our nation just punched the wrong opponent again.

This is quite a country we've got here. And things will stay this way until progressives, young people, democrats and independents rise up and elect people who can actually think. I haven't much hope for this happening.

Good luck to us all. We're going to need it.

Just finished reading the Vanity Fair article on the Saudis involvement in 9/11. The scramble to get certain bin Laden family members out of the U.S. right after the attack - the Saudis rushed to the White House for assistance.

On September 13 Prince Bandar was seen smoking cigars on the Truman Balcony with Cheney, Bush and Rice. Cozy picture that.
