Supplemental Post - Shameful

Seriously? We Elected This Guy? Twice?!?!?!

The good news is, no -- we didn't actually "elect" him twice. He bought his way in on the first one. But the bad news is, he's still there -- and will be for another year. Right at a time when we need someone who actually gives a rat's ass about the environment.

Bush refuses to fucking commit to any solid numbers when it comes to reducing emissions. He might as well get a zamboni and start running over polar bears and penguins now.

If you're wondering what I'm pissed off about, read this article from CNN about how European nations will boycott U.S.-led climate talks next month unless Washington accepts a range of numbers for negotiating deep reductions of global-warming emissions.

Girl, I am SO with you. This is unf-ing believable and embarassing for our entire country. How one man can be so obstinate is beyond me. 2009 cannot come soon enough - in the meantime, the planet will suffer.

Here's a link to sign a petition letting the world know that Bush does not represent all of us.

Thank God representatives of certain states, mayors of certain cities are going to Bali to tell the world about the other America.

I just came here to give you the same link. Time for more than just vote, sit back and wait. Oh, wait, we've had this discussion before.
