According to the AP, George W. Bush recently did a good and honorable thing:
President Bush is backing legislation to prevent people from losing their jobs or health insurance based on genetic testing.
Bush on Wednesday signed into law an anti-discrimination measure that drew enormous support in Congress. It forbids employers and insurance companies from denying employment, promotions or health coverage to people when genetic tests show they are prone to cancer, heart disease or other ailments.
He also did a good thing in 2003 when he signed into law the National No-Call list. Here’s that story:
President Bush on Tuesday signed legislation creating a national “do-not-call” list intended to help consumers block unwanted telemarketing calls.
I want to make sure I recognize that, for the past 7 years, George W. Bush has accomplished two things of which I approve. It’s important to take the time to recognize the accomplishments of people.
So there you are: two good things in seven years.
It’s my opinion, however, that virtually every other thing President Bush has done for the past seven years has been incompetent, dangerous, ignorant, dishonest, bigoted, divisive, corrupt and damaging to the reputation, economy and way of life of those living in the United States. Hence, I agree with this post.
