The Ugly American

  I'm starting to hate yesterdays date...
I woke up yesterday morning knowing exactly what day it was...what day it was the anniversary of...did I really need to be reminded by every radio and TV station on the planet?

It really turns it into an even more depressing day. Even on my commercial free satellite radio they had one channel that was reading a list of the names of those that lost their lives on that day.

I put the display on the top of my blog to remind myself every day of what happened 5 years and a day ago. My calendar on my desk calls yesterday United We Stand Day/Patriot Day. Yet everywhere I turn United We Stand we ain't! Patriot, we ain't. Here in Virginia Beach there are plenty of flags flying every day...I mean, come on, it's a Navy town...it's always supposed to be like this and it usually is, but watch the TV...listen to the talking heads. Are we united?

I'm so tired of hearing and reading...the presidnet lied to get us in a war...yeah well...so did every senator and congressman...so did almost every other leader in the free world. Do these people honestly believe that the "vast right wing conspiracy" is global?

I'm not a big Bush fan...I can't honestly support a president that took a 5 week vacation in the middle of a war...especially when those in the military only get 30 days a year...and when I was in...if you took leave...which is what they call vacation in the military and it went over a weekend...the weekend counted against your thirty days. In other words....two weeks vacation wasn't 10 days like it is in the civilian world...it cost you at least 12 if not 14 days.

But all that aside...even when people find out that Libby wasn't the leak...or Rove didn't get indicted...they're still convinced of some ridiculous conspiracy that some how resonates through every hallway in D.C.! People need to get a grip!

Enough of this rant...I need more COFFEE!
