It's time. Time to begin to think about what we want to do to fully honor Bush's Legacy. While he, himself has done much, from Iraq to the crumbling Economy to molesting the Constitution to embarrassing this great Nation at every possible turn, he needs something from us, his peeps.
For nearly eight years I have been watching this man as he has wandered through his job and been mystified at just how he got here, how he is where he is and what it all means. Through all of the observation there has been an air of familiarity about everything - something that I have seen before. But it took this long for it to finally sink in.
And then came the idea. I think you will like it.
In both the Military world and the Corporate world we live under the concepts of the Peter Principle. It is loosely defined as:
"the principle that "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence." While formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in a humorous book which also introduced the "salutary science of Hierarchiology" "inadvertently founded" by Peter, their 1968 The Peter Principle, the principle has real validity.
The principle holds that in a hierarchy members are promoted so long as they work competently. Sooner or later they are promoted to a position at which they are no longer competent (their "level of incompetence"), and there they remain. Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence"
For more indepth, go to the Wiki or Google for a full immersion.

Now, my IDEA is very simple. We simply start a petition nationally that CHANGES "The Peter Principle
" to "Principle-W
". Sort of like Preparation H, well a lot like Preparation H but in an "honorifical" kinda way [see what I did there?].
So, all we really need is just a bunch of signatures from across the country. We know we won't get the Shrinking28 but frankly, that is ONLY 28% [actually closer to 23% now but I don't want to change the Shrinking28 Franchise].
So, kiddies, you know what to do. If we do this right, we will have it done by Christmas or 012009 at the latest.
It's the LEAST we can do.
