Okay, it's official. Republican Texas legislators, with few exceptions, are stupid. In reaction to the Virginia Tech shootings, Governor Rick Perry has decided to introduce legislation to make it easier to carry concealed weapons with the addled thought that people can defend themselves against criminals. This despite evidence that access to guns make it more likely that people will kill themselves (and others) if there is gun availability. Hopefully,any legislation to loosen gun control laws in Texas will fail.

The decision of Congress to not override the Bush veto of legislation that would have authorised troop withdrawal from Iraq was a moral failing far worse than any sleaze that an escort service provider could divulge. By a vote of 222 to 203,Congress failed to reach the two-thirds support needed to override the veto and bring home American troops who are unnecessarily in harm's way. As of today, 3352 soldiers have died in Iraq because of a war that was founded upon the lies of the Bush administration regarding the weapons of mass destruction threat in Iraq.

It is unjustifiable that the Bush administrations and its minions continue to sell the American public these falsehoods. Recently, Oklahoma Senator Inhofe said of the media at his fund raiser, "The whole idea of weapons of mass destruction was never the issue, yet they keep trying to bring this up
." It wasn't the press who entered a foolish war on flimsy pretences, it was the President. To quote George W. Bush's justifications for the Iraq war on May 29, 2003,"We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories. You remember when Colin Powell stood up in front of the world, and he said, Iraq has got laboratories, mobile labs to build biological weapons. They're illegal. They're against the United Nations resolutions, and we've so far discovered two. And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them." No weapons of mass destructions have been found and the failure of the Congress to correct the consequences of this lie will condemn more American soldiers to horrible injuries and deaths.
