Freedom....

My ASS!! {rant on} The people who run this country are growing more asinine by the day. The America Supports You Freedom Walk is an occasion and an event meant to honor not only the thousands of Americans who gave their lives on 9/11, but also the people who had to put their lives back together again after losing a loved one, the people who risked their lives that day to save others - and are still risking their lives through their chosen professions. In a way, I believe this honors all Americans - or tries to - by reassuring us that this IS still our country and that we WILL defend our rights. Trust george's gang to mess up a day that should be dedicated to honoring freedom - after all, if they weren't protecting us from being on our National Mall at an event meant to honor all Americans while demonstrating a few of our freedoms - well, who knows what would happen? So here's what they're going to do. They're going to keep people off of the Mall - they'd probably be there for the wrong reason anyway, and we'll have enough people sign up to get a good photo-op. Oh, and as for the signing up thing - you'd better plan a few days in advance. You had to sign up by 4:30 yesterday if you wanted to participate. And you could only sign up online. So if you lost your home due to a national catastrophe - say a terrorist attack or a hurricane - and you have no way to access the internet (there are a surprising number of people that still don't have regular web access), then you're just out of luck. And don't even try to show up the day of the walk and think they'll let you join in. You might just get arrested. Of course, we all know what's really happening with this. george will find a way - in fact, he probably has an entire payroll's worth of people looking for the way - to turn this into a "stay-the-course-in-Iraq-for-national-security-reasons" speech. oh wait...I think it's already happened... {rant off}
