Totally off the topic... I just finished canning 24 quart jars of tomatoes... What a mess. I just hope I got everything right. I wish there were a easier way to find out whether they are any good or whether I cultivated a jar of salmonella or botulism instead, that is besides feeding them to my friends and neighbors.

If you got them as hot as you were supposed to, and they sealed on their own properly, you will be ok....

I grew up helping my Granny can everything from tomatoes to corn to pickles and jam....

The secret is make sure the temp is high enough and that they seal....

I got em up to a good rolling boil and since I wasn't sure what to do about the altitude here (1500 ft) I kept them in the bath for almost an hour. The books said 45 minutes. They all pinged like they were supposed to so I guess I won't be poisoning the neighbors this year damnit.

I'm in absolute agreement with you on that, at least in the hypothetical sense that biased far left wingers will write the history books.

The Bush administration like all others before it, will be acknowledged for it's positive points; Only the poorly educated and the ignorant will obsess over the negatives.

Even despite Richard Nixon's major Watergate blunders, history still remembers his positive points. During Nixon's Presidency he ended American fighting in Vietnam, ended the draft, and dramatically improved relations with the U.S.S.R. and China... these things aren't forgotten. It will be similar with Bush as well when his time in the White House is far behind him.

Still Another Bush Mechaniation

lets add to the list; the Bush visit to Iraq on 3 September 2007,

you, or anyone might say that the visit to the troops was a 'good thing'...
but let me present the evidence, then lets analyse the evidence

Al-Asad Air Base (the 2nd largest in Iraq)
[Marines and Soldiers have another name for al-asad; "Camp Cupcake"]
see brief outline here:

here is the latest Bushism told to the front line soldiers, marines, airmen...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

President: " They (General Petraeus, Ambassador Crocker) tell me
if the kind of success we are now seeing continues,
it will be possible to maintain the same level of security with fewer American forces"

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
(reported in various news reports, 'Surprise visit to Iraq')

the 'success' can only refer to the extra +30,000 man 'Surge' operation,
the Surge is focused in parts of Baghdad & the Green Zone,
the rest of Iraq is flushing down the waste line.

the President did not tell the troops that the 'fewer American forces',
would see units returning stateside or being rotated out of the Iraqi combat theatre.

It leaves open the possibility that the 'fewer American forces',
only means that American boots-on-the-ground
can be expected to be replaced by Iraqi units of army & police
in the ongoing Surge operation, in areas of Baghdad itself.

It leaves open the possibility that the American presence will only be re-deployed to other hot-spots in Iraq...notably the vacuum in Basra as the UK troops leave

so, i submit that Bush again is leading the troops and citizens down a
twisted truth the false hope that he has given the combat forces
in the war-on-terror, could very well backfire as desertions, morale, discipline & order continue to decay.

just my take on the 3 sep statement to the troops in Iraq.
