What Do You Want ?

A lot of my posts appear to be rants about GW and his present administration (cronies)..
But moreover I have the same concerns and expectations of all politicians.
I expect the people in power to look out for the needs of the citizens; especially the disadvantaged..
And why not ?
Most of the present day political theatre is subsidized by special interests of their own devise or thru the needs of their party. Moreover if a politician can make so much money on their own why does the taxpayer have to continue to pay them after their term ?
This is a sore subject for me. Subsidizing the lifers after they have profited during their term w/your tax dollars.

But back to point, in an effort to ask what have they done for the people they claim to represent.
1)What about freedoms in a "free society" ?
Keep Government small as not to control or invade the privacy of the citizens.
2)What about health care for all legal citizens ?
2a)as a follow up to the last question; What about securing our borders ?
3)Isn't it time to do away w/the IRS and move to a progressive tax system..
IE .. Consumption tax (www.fairtax.org)..
4)What about getting our house in order before we try or pretend to help another.
*Aid should begin at home*
5)And stop with the WORLD POLICE..Bring our people home..

It is time to become MORE self aware !
LOOK around the world and see how others perceive the misguided actions of the last decade..

WAKE UP..AMERICA..Smell the coffee..
The forests burn in Brazil..
The people of Africa are starving and dying from AIDS and genocide..

What is it like in your backyard ? Complacent perhaps..

All the News You Can Use

While surfing the various networks in search of something to watch that is not in the middle of a commercial I noticed the main story on all the news was Michael Jackson. I try to catch BBC for a different view of what's going on in the world but there again the main story is Michael Jackson.

Is there nothing else more important ?
Has the U.S been healed by the rightseous Christians ?
Has the genocide stopped in Africa ?
Did world hunger end ?
Did the freaky little guy in Korea give up his mad quest for power ?
Did the U.S. politicians let greed and corruption take a back seat to the needs of the people ?
Has Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld or Rice admitted they were wrong about anything ?
How are things going in Israel and Pakistan ?
What ever happened to A.Q.Khan ? Will he be prosecuted by the UN or the Hague tribunal ?

It's no wonder Ted Turner is disappointed w/CNN and their interest to cover "the pervert of the day". I guess more people will watch news about rapes and murders rather than get involved with the state of our environment or the progress in a free world.
