wrong but it seems the end times are upon us.
There is too much shit going on in the world for me to think otherwise. I know that Louisiana and Mississippi and Iraq are in the forefront, but there is horrible shit happening all over the world. It's a wonder more people don't go crazy and riot in the streets, but hey that's what, "Must See TV" is for right? I have never been a particularly patriotic person but since Bush took office, it has been hard to be a proud American. Now I know there are those who feel if I am going to express these sentiments that I should not let the door hit me in the ass on the way out of the country.
But just for a moment, let's take a look at this great nation of ours. Let me live up to my namesake and play Devil's advocate for a second. Take my hand and let's look at what really goes on here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
We have a President, a Commander in Cheif who has done nothing but lie to us since the day he was sworn into office and if that isn't bad enough, the fucker doesn't even care about it.
There are not and never were any weapons of mass destruction.
Thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians, (men, women & children) have died needlessly during the US occupation of Iraq.
Saddam Hussein has been ousted from power, but Osama Bin Laden is still free and is not mentioned much at all
The treatment of Iraqi detainees at Abu Gharib has been barbaric at best.
The treatment of detainees at Gitmo has been atrocious.
The treatment of American military personnel by there own goverment has been lackluster at best. Having spoken with a friend recently returning from Iraq, american soldiers not having the proper armor on their vehicles, attach scrap-metal found on roadsides, offering them little to no protection.
Bush has no exit strategy for a war he started, that is not about oil, but about liberating Iraq from Hussein's rule. Hussein has been in custody coming up on two years. Gas prices continue to rise with no end in sight and the working poor will soon not be able to afford to go to work.
Bush will not speak to the mother of a man who gave his life in service to his country, even though she camps outside his estate.
Bush will not end his vacation early when the United States suffers from the greatest natural disaster in the history of the country.
President Bush will wait five days to take action.
President Bush will wait 7 minutes to decide what to do after the largest attack on American soil takes place.
President Bush will squander the largest surplus of cash the nation has ever seen.
President Bush will not take action as white collar crime runs rampant throughout his country and the nesteggs and retirement savings hundreds of thousands of americans were counting on, are stolen from them.
President Bush cannot deliver on promises of employment, education and enviromental security.
President Bush is the worst environmental president in the history of the country.
Unemployment is at an all time high.
Education and funding for student loan programs has been greatly reduced.
For a total overview of his monumental fuck-ups go here.
But all of this is acceptable because President Bush, the liar, the national guardsmen who ducked out of duty on foreign soil, the rehabilitated drunk and cocaine abuser, the born again christian hell-bent on: lying, cheating, killing and stealing can put on a flight suit and sit in the navigators seat in the cock pit of a fighter plane, land on the deck of an aircraft and give a thumb's up. It's a wonder the guy can wipe his own ass.
It's no wonder why every other nation on Earth thinks we are scum, look who represents us.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those hurting and in need both in America and Worldwide. May God bless us all.
I hope you all are well.
