I saw your nanny in My america.

I might have kids soon, ergo I might have to get a Nanny. Especially if I am still spending a lot of time trying to find my America. Some of my friend’s kids have nannys. I have read The Nanny Diaries, I even had a nanny. Her name was Annie-Lee. I know how important it is to have a reliable and trustworthy person watching over your children. So you call your friends, get recommendations, anything possible to make sure YOUR nanny is the right person to entrust your child’s safety to. So, do you have a good Nanny, or will you find her here at “I saw your Nanny”? Only in my America.

Example from I Saw Your Nanny:
Central Park/E. 77th Street Playground in NYC
Received Monday, August 27, 2007
This occurred at the Central Park/E. 77th St. playground. If you have a little boy named Leon who is about three years old and goes to Kidville Camp (he was wearing one of their t-shirts), this is YOUR nanny! The Nanny was completely asleep in a lying position on a bench. Not nodding off in a sitting position, SLEEPING. The kid was running all around completely unsupervised. Your diaper bag made for a great pillow for her. PLEASE, if you are familiar with Kidville camps or know a 3 year old named Leon, alert the parents! This little boy could have left the park, been injured, been abducted or worse. It is much to horrible to even consider. Do you know why the sleeping nanny woke up? Some other mother (or maybe a nanny) tried to snap a picture of her with her cell phone! She may have even got one. I don’t know!

Where are the nuclear weapons in my America?

My America maintains nearly 10,000 nuclear weapons. Enough to destroy our enemies and the planet several times over. Additionally, many nuclear weapons are in the process of or set to be decommissioned. Knowing that a handful of terrorist organizations would kill to get their hands on any amount of nuclear material, this article does not bode well for my faith in our ability to protect these weapons.

Jeffrey Lewis of New America Foundation wrote about America’s nuclear future in a very interesting piece for The Financial Times on August 13th. The following is an excerpt.

“America‚Äôs new nightmare is rather that nuclear weapons and technologies will spread to unstable regimes, and possibly even to terrorists. Nuclear deterrence plays at best a marginal role in curtailing this threat. Instead of emphasising nuclear deterrence, we must work to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and technologies. We need to build strong export controls, better inspections and safeguards, tougher sanctions against violators and more targeted interdiction efforts.” Full story here.

Bush’s take- “If the Iranians were to have a nuclear weapon they could proliferate.”- Washington D.C., March 21, 2006
Update #1 Bush notified.
