The Assault on Reason!

I am reading Al Gore's book The Assault on Reason and it is as sobering as you might expect.  The list of Bush administration atrocities we all know and yet it continues to shock.  I think what really amazes me is this, since it is so clearly illegal and a conflict of interest.   Halliburton was paying Cheney $!50,000 annually until 2005, and they were granted sole-source no bid contracts worth $10 billion.  How do they get away with it, and at this point, I have to feel both parties are responsible, but what is going on and how can we continue to allow it?   It does amaze.

I know how hard it is to stay outraged, how unhealthy, and yet, we need to stay involved.  I pray for a proper balance in myself this day.
