This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

sheehan: a summary
Look, I don't think the president is out of bounds by not visiting Cindy Sheehan. By practical concerns he can't give everyone who is willing to make a public spectacle what they want.

But on the other hand I think she has every right to express her opinion. Public protest is part of American culture no matter what people seem to think. We have a right (for the time being) of gathering around and expressing our displeasure with the government. The government has the right to ignore us and stick its middle finger out at us.

That's fair.

What isn't fair is the personal attacks on Sheehan. She's just a person with a point of view. And yes, people are using her as a cause. It happens on the right and the left with interest groups flocking to the cameras.

Or do we forget the spectacle that was the Terri Schaivo episode?

As for Bush taking a vacation and not wanting to worry his pretty little head over matters of life and death, I'm not all that surprised. Bush is an elite, and he only pretends to care about the rabble. He lives in a completely different reality than most people; one with a different set of priorities. He feels entitled to enjoy his priviledge, reap the benefits of his station and make decisions that could send people off to die for his (and his friends) financial interests.

Why we keep electing people that care so little about the majority of normal people in this country is a bit of a mystery to me.

Well, not really. The doorway to politics is guarded by the money. We never even get to hear the voice of regular people anymore. Its all such a narrow range of debate. You have to have the right opinions to even consider a career in politics these days. Billions are spent each year making sure that what we think and what we believe is as natural as breathing air.
