Thoughts on Bush, ect.

Some people can’t make peace with their emotions. Such people fall into two categories, those who try to escape from themselves through self-indulgence and those join strict religions. Sometimes, it hard to tease the two sides apart.

This President has very skewed priorities. He talks about "tight budgets", yet proposes a budget which actually jacks up the decimate. He talks about building a "culture of life", yet cuts medicaid and food stamps for families with children. He talks of "fiscal restraint" Yet wants to make tax cuts for the rich permanent.
In end, Bush’s fiscal policies will only cost the government more in the long run.
The Neo-Cons and Bush had a plan to improve America’s standing in the world. But, in the last few years, the reverse has happened. Our military is spread thin, our presage and influence in the eyes of the world has actually eroded. So much for those who want to "make America stronger."

Those who are unnerved by the ethical implications of technology had better fasten their seatbelts. In the future, both genetic and cybernetic enhancements of the human species will cause us the meaning of what is "human" to the ultimate extreme.
Someday, the dilemma over stem cell research, therapeutic cloning and creating "proto-embryos" will seem quiet and niece at best.

The future is not for the Squamish or narrow minded.
At times, this administration appears to be out of control. "Outsourced torture" may have been started by President Clinton, but Bush has taken it to the hilt. He denounces tyranny, but depends on tryancal regimens to extract information. Such regimes are not only undemocratic, but, they can’t be trusted to get accurate information from terror suspects.
Besides, some of the suspects have turned out to be innocent. And in the long run, it only hurts America repetition in the eyes of the world even more.
