War inflation

I forgot to mention the talk show follies yesterday.

And I didn't write about 9/11.

And I forgot to send birthday wishes to ladonne.

Happy Birthday LaDonne!

But, back to war inflation.

I listen to talk radio while i drive. On the way home from from bowling, I caught the beginning of Bill O' Reilly's show. His perspective on the day was that the attack on the Twin towers and the Pentagon was the beginning of world war three.

By then, I'd gotten home and I didn't feel like listening to the radio over lunch. So I didn't get to hear Bill's explanations and reasonings behind calling it a world war.

Later, on the way home from parent's night, I heard Neil Bortz say that we were currently in world war four, and that the cold war was world war three. Thus, war inflation.

When Bortz was explaining about the cold war being world war three, he characterized it as being won by Reagan. By forcing the Russians into a military buildup that broke the back of their economy. Like we're doing, in the war against Iraq?

Okay, enough of this. I had a dream the other night, in which I'd decided to become a peace activist. Not just decided I was against the current war footing or something, but marches, activism, protests, etc. I'm not there. Not convinced enough, I suppose. But I have to admit to losing faith in Bush, in questioning his leadership of our country. And the restrictions to civil liberties that are being passed in the Patriotism Acts frighten me. I am so *not* a Bush apologist at this point.

But, I don't feel like I have a better solution, or really particularly agree with any that I'm hearing out there from the various presidential candidates.
