As an American it is difficult for me to offer words of advice to any other people on this planet. I inhabit a nation in which many people do not wish to vaccinate their children against measles. However, over in Iraq, there is celebration over the end of curfew conditions. Baghdad was the scene of thousands cheering and dancing in the streets because for the first time since 2003, the government announced that people were no longer bound by curfew. Sara Adams, 22, said: “maybe it’s a little dangerous, but I just want to live my life for a moment.” Just think, for the first time since we Americans entered her land, people can actually go out at night and visit friends and family.
1. I am pleased to announce that George Bush is out chopping wood on his ranch and is not bothered by any Texas curfew.
2. Dick Cheney goes out at night to visit Fox News to announce doom and gloom.
3. Don Rumsfeld will be somewhere tonight, but sure as hell, it will not be in Baghdad.
Oh, as Iraqis celebrated there were three bombs going off.

The United States of America has spent at least ONE TRILLION DOLLARS in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and that figure is on the low side. At the same time, our budget for NASA is about $4.5 billion a year. I was in my thirties when America reached the Moon. I was thrilled, as were most Americans, at our achievement of a dream that has been part of the human experience for thousands of years. I dreamed that we would continue exploring the universe in search of other life forms. Who knows, perhaps we can one day encounter alien life forms who understand the secret of peace and happiness. The current budget for NASA precludes interesting investigation of the planets in our speck of the universe. W
We have become a nation without great dreams. For Republicans, the greatest dream is to reduce taxes on the wealthy. Just imagine, if those with wealth never again had to pay a single dollar in taxes how we Americans would enter a new era of peace and wealth for all! No, we simply cannot dream of what could be. We are trapped in a world of mental pygmies. The dreams of my youth have vanished from the minds of those whose idea of excitement is chatting on the Internet!
