Seems that if you read the news of the day we are all sacrificing more than we know. But I’m pretty certain if President Bush gave a fireside chat asking for more shared sacrifice he’d get the proverbial middle finger. How dare he ask us to give up our third cell phone, our 12 year old’s laptop, new boat, digital cable, high speed wireless Internet, Netflix membership, HBO (can’t miss The Sopranos), next Spring’s new fashions, American Idol, dining out, mowing our own yards, driving a new car for less than three years, etc.
I think we can agree this country doesn’t want to sacrifice anything even to save itself today. Just look at reality — we create a front in the global war on these terrorist thugs and their evil masters in the belly of the beast by putting a large footprint in Iraq and now almost 60% of idiots polled think it’s a mistake because their strings are easily pulled by jerks on TV whining that we’ve lost 2,600 brave men and women in the last three and a half years so we must retreat because we can’t handle it and need to rebury our heads in the sand.p>Besides, it’s obviously more important to see if Rita Cosby can get an interview with that creepy liar Karr guy. Priorities you know. br> — Greg Barnard br> Disgusted with it all in Franklin, Tennessee /p>

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
