Sewage = Bush?

So post-grad life has been a grind for me lately. Working everyday for sometimes more than 10 hours for about 12 days in a row, which leaves very little time to collect my thoughts about things. This last weekend I spent relaxing and thinking about what my next blog post should be.

On Monday I was given my answer while watching the news. Apparently the organization, Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco wants to rename the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant by next year. This organization has already received over 8,000 signatures - over 1,000 more needed to put the measure on the November ballot.

Me and my roommate immediately started cracking up upon hearing this news. Yes the idea may be child like and outrageous, but I have to give this group props, the idea is very funny.

Most of us are frustrated and hate the Bush Administration by now and even have clocks ticking down to when he leaves office. My whole high school and college years have been spent with this man in office. In some ways its been hard as a young adult growing up in America to trust "mature" political leaders who are more "experienced" than me while I just watch the country fall apart. I just hope the next administration gives me hope that we can fix our problems and make the world a better place.

The more I thought about this plan to name a sewage plant after Bush, the more a I am against it. I don't think George Bush deserves to be memorialized on a sewage plant. George Bush is worse than poop in my opinion. Why should we name him for something that makes him look better? There are a lot worse things than sewage, like a oil war, global warming and car bombs.

If this proposal goes on the San Francisco Ballot, let's not vote to approve it and make George W. Bush look better than what he really is.
