Mowing Down the World With Daisy Cutters
Oh my! My landlord just came by and, first off, mowed down my daisys which were growing great from seed I sowed two years ago, then he noticed my Dennis Kucinich sign in my window and asked who he was.
He then proceeded to wonder how Kerry got up there. I told him it was because people felt a need to get Bush outta office and rallyed behind who they thought was had the strongest chance. . He said ah..but Kerry's rich, he married a Dupont! (I did correct him on that one)
The conversation went further and he asked why we bothered to even take prisioners, if it were up to him everyone over there would be dead. Why would we even try to salvage religious sites? We tortured prisioners because of what they did to us! 9-11 = Iraq? I couldn't bear to ask if he were on of the 57% who still believe the connection. I did try to explain that the prison abuses were happening before the mercenaries were dragged through the streets. Ah..if but Bush was vindicating his Daddy that was just fine with him! I tried to explain that there are Geneva Conventions and International Law but, to him, might is right!
I mentioned how I thought that by now we could have become more civilized, that attacking someone for manufactured reasons was wrong
. The whole time I'm aghast! This whole country has gone insane! We are a sick society. I want out! I want my daisys back but it appears that any seeds that are planted with goodwill are getting trampled or mowed.
