Terry Schiavo/Steroids in MLB--Should Bush or Congress Care? I see and have read a thread relating to Terry Schiavo and want to ask a question that, as an American, pertains more to me than whether or not this woman should be allowed to die of dehydration. Dennis Miller, Bill Maher, Lou Dobbs, and countless other public figures who I can't remember to name have asked this question in one form or another: The US is at War The US is in an oil/energy crisis The US is still battling with North Korea over Nukes The US is about to engage in an anatomy measuring contest with China over Taiwan and its independence The US is getting ready to screw American workers again with CAFTA Congress is worried about whether or not Terry Schiavo, an individual who has been given YEARS of due process by the court system empowered by the laws they create, lives or dies. Congress is worried about whether Mark McGuire is using steroids while setting his records. Is either of these issues going to ensure that when I'm old enough that I can live off of my social security? Is ANY of this crap going to keep my business from being shut down because some other country provides the service I do for $1 per day? Is ANY OF THIS GRANDSTANDING GOING TO KEEP OUR BORDERS OR OUR SCHOOLS SAFE? What the heck is going on? Does anybody believe that this is the most effective use of time for our lawmakers? They are meeting on Palm Sunday to pass a law for the benefit of one person, when back when the 9-11 commission released the reports and recommendations to Congress they admitted that they wouldn't have the bandwidth until they reconvened the following year. What gives?
