wow....it's been along time since i have seen so much bitterness. i have no problem with occasionally dropping the "president" if it is done basically as much with one president or ex-president as another, or if it has been done out of some kind of new social trend, but when it is done intentionally by the press or an organization claiming to be unbiased, it is propaganda. just like pictures, of all the tens of thousands of pictures that have and are being taken of PRESIDENT bush, the ones that make it on the headlines always have his mouth hanging open, or with some dumb look on his face, this is a perversion of responsibility. it seems that it has come to the point in this country that when one group doesn't get it's way, they act like a child and play silly games, they run and "tell", they make up story's, and they pout. they don't face problems or differences in a mature fashion, they do not discuss, they call names, rant and rave. wouldn't it be nice if we all treated each other with respect and worked out our problems? when i was a child, i thought like a child, i played like a child, i am no longer a child, i will put away my childish, (well most of them anyway) ways.
