The Troops Speak Their Opinions About Congress and the Media
For The Brass: Lesson Of The Day

The Department of Nonviolence & Peace

Tigerhawk notices a bill to establish a new Cabinet position and department by that name.  The bill also requires the establishment of a "Peace Academy" on the lines of West Point.

I hope we can avoid enacting this foolishness, but as TH notes, the bill enjoys broad support in the Democratic House.  As a consolation prize, then, I hope we can see it enacted quickly, so that George W. Bush can exercise his recess appointment powers once more. 

I can hear him now.

"Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming America's first Secretary of Nonviolence and Peace:  Mr. Donald Rumsfeld."
