What will the world be like post Dubya and the ole boys club?
Prissy does not claim to have all the answers, but she has a vision of what might come. We need jobs, we will always need jobs.
Nevertheless, what kind of job makes you happy?
Why does that matter Prissy-you might say-people work to make money and to have their basic needs met. But allow Prissy to submit to you the thought that people from the time they are young are told to think about what qualities in them would fit with the career path they chose.
Prissy has seen happy servers; miserable servers,happy lawyers and lawyers who play golf more than they work-then have the nerve to charge big bucks for their only adequate services.
Dubya really does not like his job-he would have much rather been simply enjoying being rich and partying with other rich folks. That was enough for him-he was happy. But apparently not enough for already rich family members. They think they want to lock up the presidency again by installing Jeb. Sure and maybe, John Wilkes Booth thought shooting Lincoln would allow him a chance to be president.
And Rove? Well, Prissy thinks he should have been a disgruntled postal employee. You know he would mess up people's mail for years until he went 'postal' on them, even that is too much control over others lives than Rover should ever be allowed.
They cannot handle that kind of power-few people can. However, the ones who can use it judiciously, fairly and wisely are the only ones who should have it. Maybe in the new world we create after they are gone we will see the need for reassement of specific traits in people and realize some people just cannot be allowed in positions where so many others lives are effected.
New rule:If you wish to work for the people as a public servant, who is what office holders are, then you simply must be sane.
Air Force Times Thousands of troops say they won't fight from July 5, 2005
Since 2000, about 40,000 troops from all branches of the military have deserted, the Pentagon says. More than half served in the Army. But the Army says numbers have decreased each year since the United States began its war on terror in Afghanistan.
Those who help war resisters say desertion is more prevalent than the military has admitted.
"They lied in Vietnam with the amount of opposition to the war and they're lying now," said Eric Seitz, an attorney who represents Army Lt. Ehren Watada, the first commissioned officer to refuse deployment to the war in Iraq.
Watada is under military custody in Fort Lewis, Wash., because he refused to join his Stryker brigade when it was sent to Iraq last month.
The war in Iraq is illegal...when will somebody besides our international neighbors notice?
Prissy feels like she is in alternate universe America, where the constitution no longer exists.

Quote of the Day
"Now the trumpet summons us again, not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need, not as a call to battle, though embattled we are, but as a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle - a struggle against the common enemies of man - tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself."--John F. Kennedy
More later...Prissy is readying for community education forums about the "Patriot Act".
Have any interesting personal episodes with the Patriot Act? Be sure to let her know if you do-so others can be made aware of your experience.
