This is my effort to share my thoughts with readers about concerns facing our country today.  I believe there is a good chance my grandchildren may be the first generation in the history of this great country not to have a better standard of living than their parents. If so, our generation is to blame. The clock is running out for damage control. .

Dumbing Down of America

It's hit bottom. Last week President Bush was asked by CBS News reporter Perter Maer "What is your advice to the average American who is hurting now, facing the prospect of $4 a gallon gasoline.....the president stopped him. "Wait, what did you just say? You're predicting $4 a a gallon gasoline--I hadn't heard that." Busy man, too busy to care about the little things.

He has our Iraq bill, predicted to be $12 billion a month, to worry about. What, you don't think he's heard that yet either?The interest on the $2 trillion we will borrow to finance the war will be $816 billion to our bottom line. I am so pleased that my grandchildren can suffer so the Iqaqi people can hate them.

Today on the treadmill crude hit $107 a barrel. How does my $200 number sound now? The dollar hit the all time low again the yen since 1985. 

Congress will turn it's lonely eyes to the NFL soon and investigate the Patriot's spying charges, since this is front and center. 

How much do we have to lose before we say enough? Remember, no goal, no vote.
