I try to wonder why so many people cannot seem to be reasonable.
I have worked in the media for many years.
There is a reason you don't see ghost stories in mainstream newspapers.
Ghost stories are BULLSHIT!
Or is it just a big coverup?
Working in the newspaper business, we get all kinds.
Some walk in complaining about the chem trails.
Alex Jones said so.
Some walk into the newsroom and ask why we haven't looked into what REALLY happened to WTC 7.
And don't get me started on UFOs.
Look, I consider myself a reasonable person.
I don't believe in ghosts.
Are there conspiracies? YES. I have been to El Mozote, El Salvador. DO NOT get me started. I have been to Beiruit. And Sarajevo.
But it is nice to have EVIDENCE before you start shooting your mouth off.
But then there was the Bigfoot sighting of 2004, about 12 miles southwest of Glacier National Park.It changed my life. Must have been 12-feet tall.
Now, the difference between a credible foreign policy from the Bush administration and Bigfoot is -- there have been CREDIBLE sightings of Bigfoot.
(Just a little Bigfoot humor.)
More to the point:
I am a progressive. I am not a tinfoil-hat wearing loonie.
If you have an EXTRAORDINARY CLAIM, please provide EXTRAORDINARY EVIDENCE.
Is the Bush administration milking the politics of fear for every drop it can squeeze?
and frankly, with Bush in charge, we damn well SHOULD be scared.
He is a recruiting poster for extremists.
The Washington Post reports that many male babies in Indonesia are being named Osama.
Why? The rage, largely over the war in Iraq.
Gee, I feel so much safer due to Bush's policies.
The truth about Bush and how we are so much LESS safe than when he took office is bad enough.
We don't need to go off half cocked making accusations that are not substantiated.
What we DO need, is a NEW Congress that will start looking into this whole can of worms.
That should be our goal.
We should not live in fear.
I plan to fly to Europe later this year.
I need to get away from Bigfoot.
