Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Agreeable Emperor

Did you know that Bush hasn't issued a single veto since he's been in office? Normally that would be a sign of a weak president, one who is afraid to stand up to Congress. He's found a different answer, though. Instead, if there's a law he doesn't like, he signs it and then writes a little note that he doesn't plan on following it. It's something Reagan('s advisors) came up with called the "signing statement." Every president since has used it at least a little, but Bush has far exceeded anyone else. Around 750 times. Why worry about the law when you can just choose to ignore it? Since it's your job to enforce it, after all, so you don't really have to worry about anyone catching you.

Here's one of the many stories written about it recently.
