This Administration is not wimpy.

Or "No Child Left Behind"

Here's another example of how tough our current GOP led Administration is. A boy in RI apparently wrote an essay about his perfect day. A day that for him would involve allegedly inflicting violence against President Bush and Oprah Winfrey. The boy is now being investigated by the Secret Service...You know the Clinton Administration would simply build a new gym where this troubled lad could take out his aggression with some 'midnight basketball.' But with Bush and Co. you know they mean business.

Can we blame this troubled lad for his pent up rage? Government spending is up nearly 40% in the last five years, our national debt has doubled in that sort period as well. The government's intelligence apparatus is flawed seemingly beyond repair and the feds let thousands languished in the aftermath of Kartina but all flew back to Washington to vote on Terri Schiavo legislation. And then there is Oprah. Her recent defense of "A Million Little Pieces", her turning Dr. Phil loose on the American populace (and for a short period of time Jay McGraw his son!)...and her endless stories about her friend Gail. Oprah even gave my friend N a puppy that later tried to kill her!

So, I can understand this lad's rage, although I don't condone it. But what I really like is that Alberto Gonzales will probably lock this kid up (perhaps declare him an enemy combatant!), perhaps torture him, and maybe bring him to trial at some far off future date. That sure beats midnight basketball and is just another reason why we should all be thankful for King George, Protector of the Realm.
