No Highway To Heaven

So Bernanke thinks that the US will grow at a moderate pace this year. What is this guy smoking? Talk about your rose colored glasses. Let's see, we dropped from first to seventh in technological innovation in one year due to, how did they put it?
A deterioration of the political and regulatory environment in the US prompted the fall, the report said.
Nice. Now, how is that housing market doing? Oh, not so well, it seems that there has been some "turmoil". If things are going to get better, how come he used the phrase "many families" instead of a few? I'm a little uncertain as to what he means.

So the Catholic church is resorting to fear in order to get the people back. The Pope says that the fires of hell are real. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion but this is one that should only be classified as real if you have been there and have come back to tell the tale. If true, I'm going to have a lot of company. Maybe we could have a barbecue.

According the NY Times, the Saudi King condemns the "US occupation of Iraq", but they don't print a quote to go with the headline and the focus of the article is on the Palestinians. Is the editor smoking the same stuff as Bernanke?

The Veterans Administration has dropped the ball. Again. Just like other federal agencies, it is beset with incompetence, indifference, cronyism, mismanagement and fraud. The computer system doesn't do what it's supposed to. Sigh.

A five year sentence for shoving. The punishment definitely doesn't fit the crime, under any interpretation of the circumstances. Punishing the child because the mother didn't take the plea bargain is shortsighted and foolish and something that I actually expect from the state of Texas. If she is technically an adult at 18, holding her in juvie until she's 21 smacks of something besides justice.

Bush thinks Americans will hold Congress accountable if the funds dry up for supporting the Iraq war. Dude, you need to get a grip on reality and quit hanging out with Bernanke, I think the smoke is getting to you. The majority (that means more than 51%) of Americans want us out of Iraq and sooner rather than later. Nobody but the 30% of Americans that just can't bring themselves to think logically or objectively, supports you. Nobody.
