How Can We Consider Ourselves Rational People and Accept These Insults?
George Bush insults every one of us every day. He throws our laws and customs in our faces and laughs at us. How in hell can we accept this? He insulted us with the theft of the 2000 Presidential election, he insulted us as he sat in a school room and New York burned, he insulted us as a thousand Americans perished on the Gulf Coast, and he insults us internationally every day he remains in office. What sort of cowards have we become to allow this?

1. The most dispicable kind of coward. One who will accept the cruelty and
neglect of the poor and the aged, the murder of service people and innocent civilians, the raping of our treasury, the loss of our freedom, the perversion of our country, rule by thugs and cretins all for 'safety'.

And in the end, none of us are 'safe'.

4. Just a suggestion, of course,
Edited on Fri Dec-07-07 07:52 PM by Mme. Defarge
but our congress could, say, try protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.

If it's not too much to ask.

5. Well that would nice, but the OP seemed more like it's us who should be doing something.
Hence my question.

6. If Congress works for us,
and represents us, then this is what we must demand that they do -- n'est-ce pas? And if they don't, then vote the bastards out of office.
