And the Bush doctrine leads us further over the edge, closer to the ultimate rift between nations, religions and fanatical dissociation A few thoughts: Bush and company are developing the "Find 'em, squish 'em and get the hell out" doctrine everyday, more refined, more insane.

The uninhibited commitment to naked power is, as writer Samantha Power put it, "incredibly irresponsible." Yet the masses embrace the adminstration – I suspect more out of fear than reason. The president manipulates the media, which lives by the sound-bite, selling his vision of a protected nation like a New York PR guy. He does this very well, but it's very bad for the country.

Bush's doctrine of preemptive attacks on suspected terrorists, the operative word being 'suspected,' is creating a dangerous precedent for the U.S. and the world. Just how far are we willing to go in the name of protection? That is truly the question that I want answered.

Well, here we go 'round the mulberry bush It's Sunday and I'm in a hurry but I received the same e-mail from Harry that you did, I presume, so I'm posting so nothing is removed from my blog sites.

At any rate, I've wasted the whole day doing nothing but watching TV, to wit, Boomtown, South Park, The History Channel and a few I cannot remember because of my fuzzy logic, which is really, really fuzzy at the moment.

So, not waste anymore of your time (anyone out there?) I'll simply sign off for now.

Best wishes.

Oh, before I forget, check out the following link. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the look!

Non Sequitar comic strip that's hilarious and timely, given the California recall fiasco

And that's that.
