The friday night rant.

Another week has gone by and no one is yelling out their window "I'm fed up and I'm not going to take it anymore!". I was talking with a good friend back in Houston a few days ago. Somehow the topic became the cost of gas and we both agreed that we are taking it up the you know what. Back under the last commander and thief, Slick Willie, yada yada yada, the cost of a gallon of gas was alot cheaper. Back around 98 it was 79.9 for cryin' out loud (in Houston, your mileage may vary). We have no one but ourselves to blame. Folks voted and we got the government we deserve.

I make no bones about my disdain for the current administration. Their proclivity for using national security and propaganda is mind boggling. Whenever they sense the publics support for their actions waning, they trot out their Emmanuel Goldstein, Osama Bin Laden. I mean c'mon folks. Bin Laden was in Afghanistan. He masterminded the 911 attack and it has been nearly 5 years and we can't find his tall skinny behind? We found Saddam didn't we. Can't we find this guy?

And call me a jaded paleocon if you must, but can someone explain to me why the heck we are in Iraq to begin with? Were any of the 911 terrorists from Iraq? NO. Most were from Saudi Arabia. Why aren't we spreading democracy there? Oh wait, they told us to get lost. And forget about using the bases they let us use in Gulf 1. Nothing makes much sense anymore. But a pox on both parties for their ineffectualness in dealing with any crisis over the last 30 years.

Thats enough for everyone.
