Forethought would be such a pleasant surprise for this administration

We are now 90 days removed from Katrina... My folks and others are still doing their best in working to rebuild New Orleans.... The situation in Iraq continues to get worse, assassinations every day, IED's are so common that many people in this country know what they are... The people of Bolivia are considering electing a man President who will legalize the growing of Coca; making cocaine more available... All of these things are going on and what are our elected officials doing right now? What are they focused on? The people we pay over 100,000 dollars a year each to represent us and steer the country?

Well, let's see we have the speaker of the House of Representatives, Dennis Hastert, focused on passing a bill to rename the national "Holiday" tree, a Christmas Tree.... "College football is not just an exhilarating sport, but a billion-dollar business that Congress cannot ignore," said committee Chairman Joe Barton, a Texas Republican".... To see this story go to...http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/football/ncaa/12/02/congress.bcs.ap/index.html
Why is the Energy and Commerce subcommittee taking up whether FSU should play Penn St, rather University of Miami.... And I'm a big time sports fan... just ask my wife... this is time that could be spent on why our gasoline prices are still above $2.25 a gallon, giving the oil companies record profits and remarkable tax breaks at the same time.

These are just a few of the stories currently going on that I was going to talk about... and then I get hold of the cyber edition of today's Washington Post . It appears that the federal government is getting ready to bail out The Big Three automakers. The administrations is going to give billions to a private industry, that does not know how to properly manage itself, while the Gulf Coast is still trying to rebuild after one of the nation's worst natural disasters. Rather than bailing out a group that did itself in , why not work for those individuals that need help from a situation they did not create... As further proof the federal government bailed out the airlines a few years back and they continue to wallow in either bankruptcy or near bankruptcy, what is to say that the automakers will not end up in the same cycle?

Bye the way, this is not meant to just bash the party in power.... All the democrats are doing right now is screaming at the top of their lungs... It is not our fault because we are not in power....

If that is all you can do it will be that much more difficult to gain power....
