    Hahahahaha:lol:

    Damn, that is a good one. Makes much more sense to me too. Perhaps you ought to contact the SF council on that one!

    :goodjob:

    Too petty for my tastes. And I could do without having any George W Bush signs/facilities in my city.

    :lol: Enjoy living in your suburb.

    I'd rather have George W. Bush be remain a distant memory. Not immortalized and deified.

    I don't see what's the problem with naming buildings after George W. Bush. Hopefully, this is the first of a long string of buildings named after the President, including elementary schools, aircraft carriers, highways, custom buildings, etc.

    This just smacks of bad taste. You don't see Bill Clinton Marital Fidelity Center (or the Richard Nixon College of Political Ethics).

    I strongly object - he does not deserve an honor like this.

    This reminds me of Colonization. At the end the people would name something after you, ranging from an infectious disease to a continent.

    A sewage plant wasn't in that list, though :lol:

    Maybe we should start a petition to have poison ivy renamed as George W Bush Ivy

    Wait, if we're naming the sewage treatment plant after W, doesn't imply that he like the plant -- cleaning up and purify America, just as the waste treatment plant cleans up and purify SF's water?

    Hum ...

    Actually, after thinking about this idea for a few minutes, it's entirely appropriate.

    George W. Bush does the dirty, unpleasant, and necessary work none of you want to do. There are bad people in the world who really need to die, and you don't have the stones to kill them. So George does it for you. And, in a nod to the South Park episode "A Little Bit Country", this works perfectly. The work that needs to be done gets done, and the people who can't handle it, don't have to.

    I don't know, I would find it pretty easy to put my signature on a document that says "invade a nation for absolutely no reason at all" while taking money from lobbyists.

    Exactly!

    I bet those idiots in the bay area will be crying in their lattes for a few days after EcoFarm sends the council his post.

    I think history will remember Bush more kindly then people regard him today. The same has been true of many leaders. When the media stops saying how bad he is 24/7 and people objectively look back on how he responded to the largest attack on America soil since WW2 he will be viewed in a different light. Future events will no doubt also change the light in which he is viewed, I think people right now are underestimating the threat because the aggressive actions towards the enemy have prevented a large scale follow up attack but the war is far from over.

    Are you kidding? It's the best of both worlds.

    Yeah. It'll go from hysteria that says that Bush is the worst president since Hitler to a below average President.

    I agree - I don't think he'll ever be widely seen as one of the greatest presidents ever, but I suspect that in time, he'll be seen more favorably than he is now. This has happened before. Truman, for instance, had the lowest approval rating ever (So far - Bush has no surpassed him by a few points) in 1952, during the Korean War. But now he's ranked pretty high by most professional historians. Andrew Jackson was widely loathed when he left office, but is now seen as a very influential and important, if flawed, character in American history. In the long run, I think Bush'll get treated a lot better than he is now. It'll just take awhile for the bitterness to fade. ;)

    The commonly held belief that the war in Iraq has served as a massive recruitment poster for the terrorists not stick with you? You don't realize that Saddam was pretty anti-terrorist? Afghanistan, I can understand, but not Iraq. It's killing our country. But these "aggressive actions towards the enemy" are completely misdirected. In the war on terror, Iraq was not our enemy. We've found proof that Saddam refused to help various terrorist groups. Dragging us into a costly war in human life, stability, power, and money, is good?

    What future events would those be?

    Sorry for the thread-hijack.

    Awesome. You guys are all just jealous you didn't think of this first.

    Things like this can go a long way. We all saw what happened to Santorum after all...
