Long on goals, short on reality

I feel a little dirty.

Parts of George W. Bush's Stat of the Union speech made me hurrah, which promptly made me slap myself, bringing me back to the reality that it's all conditional. I want to believe you, Georgie Boy. I want to tell the world that my president isn't giving me lipservice about my economic prospects as an American. I want to believe that my president will put the same kind of money behind research to perfect alternative fuels and energy as he puts into subsidizing the petrochemical industry, or the factory farm, or many of the other Uber-corporate institutions that have made America a culture of corruption and greed.

On a more positive note, more women are giving up their babies conceived out of wedlock or they're taking sole responsibility for them. In other news, it's okay for the Prez. to spy on Americans because he's preventing terrorism, but unlike the War in Iraq, there's no deadline for how long he can do it, because honestly, will terrorism ever really go away?

My thinking is this: Terrorism isn't nearly a big deal unless it involves a terrorist attacking America. Then, you bet your ass we're coming after you, mofo.

Ever read 1984?

No kidding. I'm waiting for the windowless pyramids, the party uniform and newspeak.
