Yep but this administration is really good at manipulation.  They seem to think people are stoopid.  Maybe they are but I hope not.  Do not like the Repubs any better but you are a two party system in America.  Until that changes - and I hope it does you are stuck with it.

 

One thing I do see is that your politicians do respond to pressure from the public.  On the right anyway Buck so you do have some manner of control.  In Canada they don't give a rip once they are elected.

It's as simple as voting for someone other than the two parties, Cam. It'll never happen as long as people keep waiting for something to happen. They have to make it happen themselves.

I'm tired of that "War on ... " phrase too, but the right-wing is just as guilty.

The American commando team that killed Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, reportedly included a dog, sparking furious speculation about the dog's identity and discussion of the role of canines in war. Less publicized—and far more essential to top-secret U.S. military operations—are cats.

Bird-Lovers Fight BackMar 21, 2011 12:11 PM EDT

With birds more admired than ever in pop culture, will their top predators be driven indoors? Ben Crair on how a new study and Jonathan Franzen have spurred a feline backlash.

 

To the list of recent upheavals, let’s add a new entry: The tide is finally turning against cats. The New York Times made it official Monday with an article headlined “Tweety Was Right: Cats Are a Bird’s No. 1 Enemy.” The article ran beneath a photograph of a gray-and-white kitty munching on the head of a songbird. The cat narrowed its eyes directly at the camera, as if to say, “So?”  

The world will no longer tolerate such defiance. Cats, the Times told us, are a pestilence akin to gypsy moths and kudzu. Their appetite for birds is driving some populations toward extinction. “I hope we can now stop minimizing and trivializing the impacts that outdoor cats have on the environment and start addressing the serious problem of cat predation,” one scientist pleaded.

Why the backlash against our furry friends? Aren’t they just doing what they’ve always done—that is, keep the barn clean of critters?
