Not In My Backyard

Today, a man from Arkansas scaled the perimeter fence that surrounds the White House. Secret Service agents quickly apprehended the trespasser, who will face charges of unlawful entry for attempting to get on the grounds without permission. The part that I find interesting, is that we invade the country of Iraq because we have nothing more than a hunch that illegal weapons may be stockpiled there. And then, attempt to sell the notion of creating a democratic society there ... since we're already in town. Yet, back in the USA, our country's leader is so intangible to the average citizen that nobody, other persons of the presidents choosing (like the Girl Scout who sold the most cookies in the country this year), have any chance of ever getting the opportunity of expressing their concerns to the Commander in Chief. Democratic society huh?
