I, too, wonder why the people aren't more outraged? If we had a draft as in Vietnam, I believe thousands would be protesting in the streets and in Washington. The lack of courage by the Democrats in Congress is truly stunning. The only thing that seems to get anyone's attention is the rising gas prices and the failing economy. We are headed for a major train wreck in the U.S. and we haven't even begun to deal with the long term costs of the war in Iraq estimated to be 3 trillion dollars. Plus, Medicare and Social Security funds are running dry. At least Canada covers health care. Most poor people here don't have it. The next President is going to have to start telling people the truth about the problems we face, regardless of how painful they are going to be. But I'm not holding my breath.
If the clowns in the White House who disregarded the Geneva Accords and Habeas Corpus actually read anything, they might understand the difference between fact and fiction . . . and that Jack Bauer and "24" isn't reality TV.
Happy Sunday, John
Thanks for reading and posting on my blog. After I posted, I worried for a moment about offending people with my fondness for profanity, then thought, after writing and publishing The Sex Club, it's a little late to worry about offending people. Thanks for mentioning "Frank." I think there's a lot of cops named Frank in fiction too.
