I Ask of Public Officials Two Things Only: Leadership and Competence Why is good government so hard to come by? I am watching the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and am flatly astonished by the lack of leadership being provided by our alleged government.
I have a simple question. How is it that our leaders can manage to send men and materials thousands of miles overseas to conquer distant lands and defend foreign peoples, and to aid Tsunami victims in nations that don't even like us very much (all at the expense of the American people), and yet can't even get water to the victims of what is being cited as the most devistating natural disaster in US history?
President Bush, who I used to think of as at least an okay leader, is not showing any leadership accumen at all, in my estimation. A true leader would have sent in the army by now to serve in a relief capacity, and the national guard to assist law enforcemnt. As for the effect this has had on energy production, a true leader would have signed executive orders allowing energy exploration in areas of this country currently considered off limits. But then again, a true leader would actually defend the borders of this country against invasion. This president has never, ever done that. In a way, he cares more about Mexicans than he does about you and I.
It's time for a revolution. Something is rotten in the state of the Union. Time to take out the trash. We have to get rid of all of these politicians. They are pooisoning our country and we will die if something is not done. In the next election, I want to see local police officers, mechanics, convenience store managers, plumbers, electricians, firefighters, and working people generally take over national offices. If we don't banish the professional political class, we will die. Look at the Gulf coast. The body politic is already very ill. Do you think this would have happened 40 years ago? No. Because we weren't afraid to do the right thing back then. Now we are, because we are afraind to assume responsibility (blame) if things go wrong -- our so-called government, aided by professional trial lawyers (leeches) is all too happy to put you in jail for taking bold action if things don't turn out for the best.

Quick note: I do not approve of Blogger's new 'Flag' button. I am seriously considering using a different host for my blog. _____________________________________________
