CNN.com – Bush: No need to worry about port security – Feb 23, 2006

Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to write anything about the shipping ports until I received more facts, but this quote from President Bush bugs the hell out of me.

He says, “People don’t need to worry about security.”

We don’t? Since when?

Since 9/11, we’ve been told — through various people and groups — that we need to watch what we say, we need to pay attention due to security concerns, etc, etc. We’ve been told that the President is allowed to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America because we are at war with terrorists.

But now, President Bush has decided that we don’t need to worry about security.

Really?

I’m going to double-check these facts, but Dubai Ports World company will be purchasing Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation — the company who manages the U.S. Ports now for over 6 billion dollars. Now, Dubai Ports World is located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — a country that has terrorist ties. Money that went to fund the 9/11 attacks came from the banks of Dubai. Two of the 9/11 hijackers were from UAE and Bush considers them our friends? With friends like these, who needs enemies? (she asks in her best Yiddish accent.)

I could go on.

I’m sure someone will jump on the support Bush at all costs bandwagon, but isn’t there a place where we should draw a line and say, “No, we don’t support you in this?”

God have mercy on us all, because we know the terrorists won’t.

God Bless

2/23/1996 – 2/23/2006 — Ten Years and counting…

Well, I could write about Cheney’s hunting accident and the political fallout, but I’m sure everyone is just sick about the story.

I could write about Bush refusing to relent on letting an Arab country take over not one, but six of our seaports. But, I want to do some more research and make sure I have all my facts straight.

So, since today is Feb. 23, 2006 and it was ten years ago today that my now wife allowed me to escort her to a party, I thought that I’d write about us.

Cheryl and I were among the first guests at the party and we were the last to leave. We barely noticed that anyone else even existed. We still have days where we only see each other and don’t seem to notice that anyone else even floats near our existence.

She is the best part of my life — the best thing to ever happen to me — and I think every day, I fall more and more in love with her. Do we have problems? Sure, we do, just like everyone else does, but since we’re such good friends, we’re able to work them out.

Prior to Cheryl, I wasn’t really a long term relationship kind of person. Eight months was pretty much long enough for me. Then, came Cheryl. She is my sun and moon and puts the stars in the sky. Without her, I’d probably be a wreck, but with her, there isn’t anything I cannot achieve.

I sent her 10 red roses — one for every year — and the florist asked me if Cheryl reciprocates. I told her not in flowers. I don’t have roses or even carnations on my desk today, but I have magic drawers that are filled with clean underwear and socks and magic closets that fill back up with clean clothes on a regular basis. So, no, I won’t be getting flowers, but Cheryl tells me that she loves me on a daily basis more so than I could ever tell her.

So, in case you’ve forgotten, babe, I love you, more today than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

All My Love Forever,

Julie
