    It's official: Bush sewage plant on the ballot | Countdown to Crawford | Los Angeles Times

    "...voters will decide in November whether to rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant the George W. Bush Sewage Plant."

    "Supporters say the idea is to commemorate the mess they claim Bush has left behind by actions such as the war in Iraq. Local Republicans say the plan stinks and they will oppose it."

    Yeah, maybe it would have been better to leave Saddam in control so that he could kill, maim, and torture thousands more of his people. This sewage plant is a real political slam on Bush and it seems the haters will go all out to do anything to get their point across. But, for environmental purposes, it is good a that a sewage pant exists regardless of political opinion.

    And the US didn't create that situation, or encourage it after invasion and occupation?

    Maybe you should worry about the over 2 Million North Koreans killed by Bush's new friend KJI or all the hundreds of thousands killed in Darfur.

    I think the sewage plant is pretty funny. That's what democracy is all about. You want to name my airport after Reagan, I get to name my sewage plant after Bush.

    I think that Saddam was killing and torturing people long before we got involved. He wiped out most of his govt when he first came into power. They hate their own kind.
    I'm worried about any idiot dictator that would commit genocide. But, we would have to get help from the wimpy European nations as we can't do it all alone. Or, we could say 'the hell with it' and retract onto our own soil and leave every country with their own pathetic mess. Do we send troops to Darfur or get international help in Darfur? I know that many of these pathetic countries have been fighting for yrs and killing each other. It all depends on what we consider what will affect our national security.

    Now that's funny. How about a strip joint named after Clinton? Where does it stop? Partisan politics is killing this country!!

    How about any Repub president has a dem for vice-president and a dem president has a repub for vice-president. Then the idependants can hate everyone and name all kinds of things after both. I'm serious, let both partys into the whitehouse.

    That used to be the way it worked, if you didn't know that, all the first elections were pretty much that way. I have no problem with that idea, would actually like to see it started again, and I would love a strong 3rd party, but the current system won't allow that, it would literally take another revolution to change it at this point.

    As far as the Sewage Plant goes, it is very fitting for George W. Bush, its the best he deserves, and you mentioned a Strip Joint named after Clinton, actually I'm surprised that hasn't happened, still have no problem with that, and I think Clinton was 100 times a better president than Bush.

    I hate politicians that get highways and things named after them, just a pet peeve, but really bad politicians deserve nothing, even naming the sewage plant is more than Bush deserves.

    Along with this 3rd party thing. I was listening to Jesse Ventura the other day and he is a very realistic and smart man. He says both partys have let us down and he had some very good ideas and opinions. He may look rather strange, but he is very intelligent. Heck, I voted for Ross Perot once. I wanted some change and I'm sure Ross would have tried. Can you picture a guy from Peoria voting for Ross. I did and so did many others I know from this city.

    I liked Ross, would have voted for him, but he didn't have a chance, so I voted for the Best of the Worst, have to do that these days, you never vote for the best candidate, you have to vote for the Best of the Worst. Oh, and I liked and wanted Ron Paul to have a chance for this election, didn't like all his ideas, but liked a lot of them, but even he was shot down.

    You're right. It's much better for us to kill, maim and torture them. After all, it's what Jesus would do. :rolleyes:

    It will get out the vote! But I doubt that it will pass. The voters in San Francisco probably don't want to honor Bush by putting his name on anything as important as sewage treatment. Maybe a few rooms on Alcatraz...

    Alcatraz is a very popular tourist attraction and a State Park. Far more valuable than a sewage treatment plant.

    Too bad they don't dedicate fire hydrants. I can see the plaque now. Say....about 6 inches from the ground.
