"Ever since that gang of Darth Vader imitators took over the United States five years ago, I have watched as almost every single institution and ideal I hold dear has been stomped on and destroyed. The country has endured the willful destruction of its forests, strip-mining of its mountains, pollution of its air, the introduction of church into state, wanton and illegal warmongering, the destruction of creativity in its schools by forcing every child into the same test-driven mold, the hatred and contempt that its actions have engendered abroad, the disgusting rip-off of its treasury that has caused an unconscionable deficit, the smirking reward of billion-dollar contracts to incompetent cronies, and so much more. Now, I imagine, since they're having so much trouble getting people to enlist in the Armed Forces, George Bush, Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are probably discussing how a few well-placed nuclear bombs could go a long way to solving their problems in Iran and North Korea." - - - Joyce Marcel
