Things fall apart

Even some of the rats are beginning to flee the sinking ship $$ Bu$hco these days. As Iraq descends into civil war Bill O'Reilly says we should cut and run. Showing his loyalty to the cap'n, none other than Tom DeLay calls the ports deal, “pretty outrageous.”

In the pilot house, they're also dealing with the Abramoff thing, the Valerie Plame investigation, “Cheney's got a gun,” illegal spying on American citizens, and a few other distractions. In their spare time they're trying to nurse our Katrina hangover with assurances from Michael Chertoff. Seeing his skeletal face and listening to his defensive tone of voice only serves to remind me of the long list of incompetent appointments made to reward campaign contributors.

I just don't know what to make of it. Scandal fatigue has never been higher. The media reports one atrocity after another and then in a couple of days starts parroting the Bu$hco party line. Americans go back to sleep because it's just too much trouble to face the music.

Meanwhile those in power demonstrate their disdain of average Americans over and over by doing things like sending our kids off to war, cutting college aid, Medicare/Medicaid, early childhood education, food stamps and housing assistance, focusing their energies on another round of tax cuts for their rich buddies.

I’m ready for a new reality.

I think it's time to head for the hills again--live life off the grid! Wanna go?
