God is Red


Something about modernism, technology and the twentieth century that just gets me all frisky.

Rocks and Other Places

Loaded Language

I think President Bush is about to encounter a problem of his own creation: his own touted simplicity. President Bush's plan for Social Security reform is already facing an uphill battle from opponents in both parties and from the American public. The problem Bush is facing is that his plan is not simple and cannot be effectively conveyed or understood through simple language. Social Security reform is a big, complex problem and in order for Bush to make any headway he will have to abandon his badge of simplicity. Unfortunately, Bush has so surrounded himself with this aura of simplicity that any move away from it will complicate things for both him and the Republican party. Reality has a habit of breaking down the door and wrecking up the place if it is ignored for too long.
