Greed and dishonesty

We read that the Homeland Security bill went to President Bush with $900 million more than he asked, but with a cut in spending for emergency responders. This is the government that keeps telling us what danger we’re in and how scared we are. And then they cut funding for the people who do the most to keep us safe?

The Bush administration is like an autoimmune disease ” a system gone bad that undermines the body it is supposed to be defending.

Nobody I know is scared, but they sure are angry. Americans can handle anything that comes our way ” we are not cowering folks. Neither are we people who believe in invading other countries to rob them when we already have so much.

Pathological greed and dishonesty moved into the White House with George W. Bush, and they will destroy us if we don’t clean them out. John Kerry is not perfect, but he’s 10 times the man Bush is, and we need a real man right now, not a posturing juvenile.
