>and I don’t feel fine.
I am angry. I am depressed. I don’t want this blog to become political, but it’s jumped into my awareness and won’t go away. I want to go back to being unaware, but I can’t. I cannot believe that the American people actually want George Bush as president. What marketing did the lowest common denominator fall for? Obviously people are not as upset by the Iraqi situation as I am. I feel it is an unnecessary war.
Actually, I feel all war is unnecessary, but at least I can see the reason for going into Afghanistan. They were harboring a criminal whose network attacked us. Fine, but you should really ask the guy from 20/20 where Osama bin Laden lives because he was interviewing him a few years ago.
I just hoped that the American people would be able to question the government instead of just blindly accepting the hype. I’m not saying that there was voter fraud. I’m saying it’s seems to me that the majority of people are not intelligent enough to see or care about what the government is doing in their name.
I’m very upset. I didn’t realize that people actually believe what they see in the media. I could go off on a diatribe about the problem with the Bush Administration being that they claim the intelligence they received before 9/11 was flawed, but they felt the intelligence they received about the weapons of mass destruction was correct. Seems to me that there is either a problem with the established system of intelligence gathering or something is wrong with the people who interpret the data in the Bush Administration. Seeing as how the problem didn’t arise until 2000, my bet is on the interpretation.
The only good thing is that now we don’t have to see all those lame political ads in the media. People can go back to their apathetic, reality show existences while people are dying over in a country we have no logical reason being in.
