In the first few hours of their control of Congress, The House today passed a “9/11 security bill”, which “implements some of the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.”
Whew. I feel safer.
I’ve thought for a long time that one should not base governmental policy on fiction, much to the dismay of Christian neocon nutjobs who think the Bible should tell us how to run society. So the Dems are really making a difference. Have they revoked the Patriot Act? Have they sought a true investigation into the events of 9/11 (not that it matters, but it would be nice for SOMEONE in the government to say that the 9/11 Commission report is fiction)?
Instead, they will intrude upon privacy even more, as now every shipping container that enters the US is eligible to be searched without warrant.
On another note, I ran into a christian Bu$hite supporter the other day. This doesn’t often happen to me in Maine, in the circles I travel in. Whenever I encounter someone claiming to be both a Christian and a Bush supporter, I ask them this question: Can you name me one single, tangible thing that George W Bush has done in office that is in line with Christ’s teachings in the Bible?
Not one of these people has ever come up with one single answer. They always evade my question.
I can’t imagine why….
