“We all deeply regret the tragic suffering of the Armenian people that began in 1915. This resolution is not the right response to those historic mass killings,” Bush said at the White House.  CNN article here.  What is the right response?  Why do we need a Congressional declaration concerning an event that happend almost a century ago?

If anyone knows why we need to offically label this, please let me know.  Whether or not is was genocide ( I don’t know the facts of what happend but I’m assuming it qualifies), why does it matter whether or not Congress officially defines it?

 I find it appropriate that this gets passed two days after Columbus Day.  Weird Al needs to do a rendition on McCartney’s “Ebony and Ivory” called….Irony and Hypocrisy?  That sounds nice.

Later this evening I plan to hold a meeting to officially determine whether or not my neighbor is a jackass and officially define him as such.
