The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Political Notes
So, Karl Rove wants the Republicans to make the war on terror a central focus of the 2006 elections? In other words he wants to change the subject away from all the problems besieging his party at the present time, and he wants to continue hiding behind the terrorists, as they have done since 9/11. Who knows, maybe it will work. Maybe the American people are just dumb enough to keep the Republican majorities in Congress. After all, they did re-elect George W. Bush just 14 months ago.

According to this story, the administration knew well beforehand that the levees in New Orleans were likely to be breached. And they knew the economic consequences if such a breach occurred. I just keeps getting worse and worse, doesn’t it?

Seven US soldiers have been killed in Iraq. Dreadful.

There was a new case of mad cow disease found in Canada. See what a mess the scientists are making of the world?
