Escape from Insanity

Off to Asia in the morning. Away from the blame game being played by the Bush administration. Blaming the victim has never sunk so low. Those of us who see this administration for what it is, have been too polite, for too long. It isn't politically correct to use inflammatory language. But let's face it--from scapegoating minorities, starting wars based on lies, occupying foreign lands in the name of "civilizing" them, and evoking hysterical religiosity to justify it all, I challenge someone to show me how this is not a fascist administration. We are just lucky that there are still some checks on absolute power.

Meanwhile, as America aggressively squanders its great gift, two billion people in Asia are working, day and night, to get a piece of the action. Some things to note about them: they respect teachers, they watch less TV, they are less religious, they study hard, and they are hungry as hell. They can't indulge in the kind of smug, fatuous, and dangerous conceits that led us into Iraq, and that have let us stand by as millions of our own are killed or made homeless. Just how do the super-patriots in the White House think that their short-sighted, self-destructive policies are going to keep us Numero Uno, in the face of such competition?
