The onset of fall is depressing, its taking battle stations for winter. Its not that I don't like Fall, I love it once its in stride, but the period of time where Summer fades into fall is really depressing, especially when it starts rearing its head this early.
Since I'm posting:
To the Not-So-Honorable 43rd President of the United States,
Please stop dwelling on September 11th, 2001. While it was a sad day for the American People, it occurred nearly 4 years ago, and since then our reluctant allies have been attacked. This so called war will be a blemish on our great county's record. The citizens of this country have prevailed, we continued to live our lives and treat the victims of the 9/11 attacks in much the same manner as those who died in the 1998 US Embassy bombings, the 1995 Oklahoma City Federal Building Bombing, and the 1999 Columbine incident (among others). A silent reverence and respect, not a meager excuse for reckless actions and irresponsible policies.
So please stop attempting to rally support of your actions by calling out the ghosts of 9/11/01. If you really want us to respect your actions, first realize that you are in your position, with its month long vacations, armed guards and other benifits, because 51% of the voting public still supported you to a reasonable extend on November 2nd 2004. Then realize that you no longer have a 51% approval rating, and that most Americans want to pull out of Iraq - not stay there for another 4 years. Then after you make those realizations, act on them.
