It needs to be said that Good Input can come from anywhere. I don't care if a person is 6 years old or 106. Neither do I care if they are Republican, Democrat or other. It doesn't matter if they are black, white, green or spotted... nor does it matter if they are male, female or something in between. Most of all it doesn't matter if the person is American, Mexican, Australian, German or Martian. The bottom line is if someone actually says something useful, or something which can be turned into something useful.. then that is good input and it shouldn't be simply cast aside because they are a Bush Supporter, Kerry Supporter, Clinton Supporter or believe PeeWee Herman is the one best suited to lead our country. It is counter-productive to any situation to bash or act against what is trying to be done simply because you don't like a person, group of people or a nation. This idea of having to claim everything is a failure is also antiproductive. Since 9/11 it's been politically motivated that many of the things which were done were "Failures", but the simple meaning of a failure being "a lack of success" has been diminished to a more conspiratorial meaning of failing to succeed in protecting people because someone chose to not do something they knew to do on purpose. This is why I oppose the "Failure" word anymore, because a lot that was done in the past were things that couldn't be done because of the times or were simple cases of making a wrong decision. Everyone makes mistakes and/or makes a wrong choice, I know of no person who never made a mistake. So why do we insist on holding those in Government to a different standard than we hold for ourselves or the common person? I don't hold Nagin responsible because of his political affiliation, in fact prior to Katrina and with in the week that followed I didn't know his political affiliation.. and the truth is that I really still don't know. I surmise he is democrat or possible a third party because of how fast he tried to blame Bush.. but that doesn't mean he is. I hold Nagin responsible for the fact that ever since the 27th of August I've seen where he made one mistake after another, then he tried to make himself blameless by pointing fingers elsewhere. It's time for people to try to stop being guided by petty prejudices and work together for ourselves. If we haven't learned by now that Government is incapable of protecting us completely, then I guess we never will.
