So a lady in Georgia has been cited for a bumper sticker that states 'I'm tied of all this Bushit'. The law used to give her the ticket was overturned in the 70s by the Georgia Supreme Court, nevertheless she gets a day in court in April.
I wondered what would have happened if her Bumper Sticker had said 'I like Shittake mushrooms?'
I wonder, is there such a thing as a Civil Cold-War? Because if I were to desrcibe America right now, that's what I would have to say we're dealing with.
I have never seen this country so divided. People on both sides of the issues are polarized to such a degree right now that it makes me wonder if we'll ever be able to put Humpty together again.
Abortion. Immigration. Medicare. Social Security. The war in Iraq, the Environment.
Even the media is taking sides in a way that is more suited to English Taboids than to the US News channels.

This year, 2006 is an election year (when is it not, these days?). The House and Senate is up for grabs. Whomever you vote for, Democrat or Sulphurous-Fiery-Pit-Demon, please - please make sure they're more moderate in their views, so we can start to restore some sanity to this country, before we start beating the crap out of one another in the street.
