Lets Make Change.

Suprise Suprise

Its 11:46 and the US Supreme Court rejected the appeal from the schindlers to reinsert Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube. Didn’t see that coming…

Bush on Iraq

” [Iraqi differences] will be resolved through debate and persuasion instead of force and intimidation…The free people of Iraq are now doing what Saddam Hussein never could: making Iraq a positive example for the entire Middle East.”

What are insurgents and daily violence again? Seems the Commander in Chief forgot, or just isn’t reading the paper since there are no papers conservative enough for him.

Bolton needs to Bolt

Who out there thinks that a man who while serving as senior arms control officer at the State Department has according to 59 different (Republicans and Democrats) diplomats been declared to have an “exceptional record of opposing U.S. efforts to improve national security through arms control” should be appointed ambassador to the U.N.? By the way I just described Bush’s choice to serve as UN ambassador, John Bolton. Wait…there’s more, he also doesn’t like the UN! And the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, possible 2008 Republican candidate Richard Lugar stands strongly opposed to his nomination. What does Bush have to say? Well we’re not quite sure, but I bet he’d say John Bolton “is a good man who supports democracy.” Condi made public remarks saying, that Bolton is “a tough-minded diplomat” and has “a proven track record of effective multilateralism.”…check out this article for more of Bolton’s inabilities…

This administration goes further and further every day to put in place people with no or improper credentials to top government jobs, I ask you where does it end?

Another Appeal!

I’m not sure how I feel about this. I think its good that it was the courts rather than the congress who appealed the decision but I think it is kind of silly that they are going to ad another court decision to the already long list. I think the fact that the courts are reconsidering shows how great this country is. I don’t agree with the decision, I think at this point we should just let Schiavo pass peacfully with forcing a feeding tube back into her body; but nonetheless, I’m glad to see that the power of protest is still efective.

But then again, the proteters are in a very small minority and are using rather sick forms of protest (taping their children’s mouth closed). I don’t know abotu this.

It doesn’t really matter because there is no way the 11th Circut Court will overturn the decision. I don’t think it’s fair to give the Schindlers and all those crazy pro-life people false hope.

Ahhhhh! I’m just sick of this.

openthread: what do you think about the decision to hear the Schiavo case AGAIN!?
