Decisions, decisions, decisions, so the midterm elections were a referendum on the current administration. Now it’s time to see what Bush thinks about his own run at the office. With his newly released memoir, Decisions Points, George W. Bush attempts to put a human face and spin to the crucial points of his presidency. And with that, perhaps, rehabilitate his legacy. But my question is this, would you even read this Presidential memoir? And to borrow from the Daily Beast, Has the apparent failings of the current administration put George W. Bush and his administration in a better light? Of course, memoirs reveal much about the writer than he’d like to think. And in that light, how do you feel about Bush’s reaction to Kanye West’s infamous, “Bush doesn’t care about black people?” Though more importantly, should the former president be investigated for his approval of questionable interrogatory practices such as waterboarding? What do you think?
While we’re on the subject of what was done at work, how do you feel about the case where an employee was fired for posting derogatory comments about her boss on her public Facebook page? And it seems to beg the question, should insurance companies be allowed to cancel policies or change premiums based on information on your Facebook page?
Perhaps Facebook should impose warnings when you’re trying to upload that crazy, dangerous week you had that you really don’t remember. Though I don’t think labels like, “Photos might actually be seen by future employers or insurance adjusters,” will do as well as the graphic and gruesome images to be included with every pack of cigarettes that the FDA is pushing for. Crying babies, diseased lungs will stare back at you from your pack of smokes, soon. I see that branded cigarette cases will start selling more. But do you support such warning labels?
