I'm frightened: Bill O'Reilly is making sense on his radio show this afternoon.

Note: Bush is giving a press conference, which is what? his seveth in 5 years? He's supposed to outline his energy policy which should include an appea to hydrogen cells adn hybrid cars (yay) as well as social security reform (boo!).

Energy crisis. Granted, he's stating the obvious, but he's saying the right things about what should happen (as far as my opinions are concerned) adn what Bush should be doing.

Fun. :( To each their, own right? I think Bush makes people feel reallly safe. Plus O'Reilly brow beats people that he considers wrong like everyone wants to do. I can see the alluee in both, but I also see the idocy adn future implications.

Maybe that's part of the problem: these types of people don't look far enough ahead and on global scales. I look at the repercussions of Bush's policies and they don't seem to consider 10, 20, 30 years from now on a global scale. He can't see things changing from the way they are.

Eh. My $.02

You and I are in COMPLETE agreement here.

It's freaking ludicrous to cut in stone marriage definitions to leave out homosexual couples in perpetuity. Plus, it's just mean.

The "I think this way.." is indicative of many strongly religious groups that want to force a moral norm. Though I think that their hope to create a moral society may be admirable I just think it's complete impractical and dumb to force a moral view that condemns most people simply for existing in one way. I alway like the phrase "I am the way my created made me" because it's something all these fanatics should take to heart. Inherent in this statement is that you, too, must be as your creator made you and correct by design. Depending on monotheism or polytheism, this ideal could be quite beneficial in global, humanistic acceptance.

The hang up becomes "good and evil" and how and if you define them.

Bush leaves me feeling played most of the time. But I've disliked him as my leader since the morning of 9/11 when it was Tony Blair who first told me not to worry.

That said, its tough to expect the president to institute a policy with respect to long-term consequences. That's what we have Congress for. However, I do concede certain objections to harmful foreign policy.
