This is fantastic! You should be interviewed on a talk show.

SandyCarlson

No. 1 gets me. Clerical errors. Hah. Always the secretary gets the blame. This is a great list. I hope you repost later in the year to keep us on the ball.

The Gal Herself

This just in! I believe I heard that a special prosecutor will be named in the destruction of the torture videotapes! It's a sad and sorry list, isn't it? Here's hoping that 2008 and the candidates bring about the change they promise.

Robin

Yeah, those clerical errors in number 1 are going to cause a lot of innocent people to end up dead I suspect.

Nicholas

The reason for #4, and maybe many others too, is perhaps that people are being lobbied (paid off!) aggressively.

SJ Reidhead

Interesting list. As far as #9, I do know if the NM US Attorney was any example, they all needed to hit the showers. Here in NM, a huge corruption investigation was being stalled. The moment there was a change in US Attorneys, indictments started flying like confetti, including some very highly placed officials and former officials here in the state.

It all just makes me sick. I for one am so tired of the corruption on both sides of the aisle, Clerical errors that cost millions of dollars and maybe lives. I hope 2008 is better for all of us.

Linda R. Moore

Wow. Just, wow.

And here's me, applying for citizenship in this most interesting of years.

I started a new blog on January 1st, and my TT this week is about biting off more than I can chew. ;)

No nonsense girl

I'm glad to see you back. :)


What a great/interesting entry!!!!

Janet

too many things...too many things.

Candy

That's why I hate politics! Can't resist discussing it with friends though, hehe!

Jenny McB

And here in NH, we have Rudy telling us that this is a war on terror, excuse me, I thought it was about weapons of mass destruction.. Meanwhile the White house and dubya have been quiet, too quiet about everything you listed.

Here's to an interesting election year. Happy New Year!

Lori

Yep...those sound like some definite unresolved issues:) May 2008 bring our soliders home and lower the deficit a couple trillion. Happy TT.

RittyRats

Ew, ouch!! If I was a politician, I would be beet red right now! Lots of embarassing things happenin' in WashDC, and perhaps, in governor's mansions around our nation, too.
Great TT! Keep us thinking!

armywife

sadly, none of this seems very surprising. somedays i think we've sunk to a new low, but really, i think its just that we've forgotten how low the old low was.

fun list though

happy TT

Intersting slant on 2007. I don't think anyone else has such an innovative review approach.

Thanks for visiting my T13 #63 13 Celebrity Births in 2007

Yuriko

Hmm.. I don't even think the weapons got over there... it was probably "paper filler" so that when it appears on the streets in some inner city in the hands of some drug king pin, it can be blamed on the Iraqis or "clerical error".

I mean.. how do gang members get semi-automatics in the first place?

Gattina

Very interesting what you wrote ! What we hear (in Europe) about the war in Iraq is that it is a catastrophe and a completely crazy and stupid war for nothing, the only reason why your troups are still there is because Bush doesn't want to loose his face, but to what price ! The other countries are withdrawing their troups now.

#1 always makes me snicker. That's one hell of a clerical error.

Unfortunately, my list is not quite as serious: Life is sexually transmitted and other thoughts to ponder.

Lara

Great TT--while it's good to look ahead, we can't get too ahead of ourselves and let past issues slide.
Great post and have a happy 2008!

zenmomma

These just make me so sad. But the countdown continues. Only 382 days left.

Natalie

This makes me shake my head in shame at our government. Sigh...

Xakara

*Sigh*

I know what I'm going to get when I come here, and yet I can't help but want to know. *Headshake*

Thanks for helping us not to lose focus and to take a good hard look at the things the next person in office is going to have to clean up. (Yeah, cuz that's going to happen)
