**Quick note about commenting on this blog: As always, comments are most welcome and I would like to thank those of you who spend the time to voice your opinions. Remember, this is a community blog, not a soap-box, so I hope you all continue to comment. For a while now, this blog's comments have been moderated by me to prevent the "you suck" and "I hate you" and "death to Bush" comments from being published until I give each comment the OK. But recently I've been getting spammed by bots from "naughty" websites so, for now, I've implemented comment word verification which will require you to retype the word that appears in the box above the comment. Since it requires a human to read the word, it prevents computer automated bots from spamming me with links to junk websites. So remember: make comments, be heard, and play nice.**

And with that, let's move on to our wonderful Legislative Branch.

This past Friday, the Bush Administration criticized Congress for their deliberate failure to pass a national security measure that would protect Americans from future terrorist attacks.

In a letter signed by both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence, the administration stated:

[The] government has “lost intelligence” because of the expiration of surveillance legislation caught in a political tug of war.

“We have lost intelligence information this past week as a direct result of the uncertainty created by Congress’ failure to act...”
Did you catch that? Our own government has lost security intelligence beacuse our own Democratic controlled Congress has stubbornly refused to protect us.

Don't you see what this is? It's not about doing what's best for America anymore, it's about doing whatever they can to spite Bush, regardless of how dangerous it us for the rest of us. It's about disagreeing with Bush in every way possible. It's not about doing what's best for the country anymore - and it's not about doing what safest for you and I. People argue about how Bush has made this country a more dangerous place, but I don't ever hear these critics criticizing Congress for pulling stunts like this.

Meanwhile, our enemies are following our news carefully and are fully aware that at this current moment, while Congress is taking a vacation, they can plot against us on our own airwaves while we sit on our hands unable to listen.

Thanks Congress.
