I'm so mad...at myself.

It's going to be awhile before I figure all of this technical stuff out. Ok, I worked for several hours this weekend on two great new pages for my website and the only link to them through the site isn't working :(

Perhaps I'm taking the wrong approach to all of this Bush stuff. Let's change this section of my journal to a forum for creating my political platform. I figure it'll be about 12 years before I'm ready for all the issues. Abortion - the new slant on this is a bill which will increase funding to family planning clinics and finance sex education programs in the public schools K-12. If more women and men are educated on how to prevent having children then we won't have as many abortions and at the same time will reduce global overcrowding as well as the welfare rolls.

Pro-active - that's going to be my style.

In the mean time if you would like to keep choice alive - consider learning more about John Ashcroft and educating your congressional representatives.

If you would like to express your views to the George Jr. you can contact him at:

George W. Bush President of the United States The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Phone: (202) 456-1414 FAX: 202-456-2461 e-mail: president@whitehouse.gov

If you are unsure how you stand on the Abortion debate you can test your Pro-choice IQ.

Ok - Bush has been in office what? a full day now and he is already chipping away at women's rights. Aren't these the same people he relied on to get him into office??

ANd his wife doesn't even support his ideas. Yes, reduce the number of abortions thru education, ect. but leave the right to chose in place!

While some have known the truth all along, others are only starting to see the real side of George Jr.

A friend of mine had the best response to Bush's efforts to strip federal funding from clinics which provide abortion counseling and services:

"Can I just trade in my rights now?
I'm going to lose them anyway.
Maybe, I can get a car."

I'm reading this book about guns and the second amendment. I'm not very far into it yet but they begin by discussing all the reasons that people should own guns. Good arguements: so that the weak can protect themselves, so that our country is alway able to defend itself (even without a formal military), ect. Now they defend our rights to own guns but what about all the arguements our founding fathers had about ensuring people were trained. They metion this in the book but the concept slowly fades.

Why don't we require people to go through a saftely course before they can own a gun?? We do it for cars.
Or better yet...what about everyone goes through basic training when they finish high school. See that way we'd have a trained militia with experience in taking care of and using weapons to call upon if the country needed to and individuals who understood the weapons littering our society.

I agree we should be able to defend ourselves, but most people forget there are responsibilities that go with freedom.
