went to bed Tuesday evening feeling absolutely whipped and
sick to my stomach. After
trying to watch the appointed president’s State of the
Union speech for 15 minutes I could stand it no longer. Nausea
was rising from my belly. Seeing the puppet administration and
jack-in-the-box congress popping up and down at every sentence
was enough to do me in.
must we be subjected to the ongoing lies of this man and his
keepers on almost every
TV channel? His words are like so many slaps in the face. Since
he didn’t fulfill the promises from the last State of the Union
why should we believe his silly phrases this year?
should we believe he has answers to stave off the massive depression
of his huge deficit creation? Is he kidding? Is that what the
silly smirk is about?
Why should we believe
the man who, as a former governor of Texas, executed more prisoners
than any governor in modern U.S. history when he says he wants
to help released prisoners?
should any thinking person believe this terrible leader who
hasn’t had a hungry day
in his life tell the poor and the hungry anywhere how he’s going
to fix things with job programs to retrain folks whose jobs have
been exported to other countries?
should we believe this wager-of-illegal-war whose policies
have killed 500-plus
of our military, wounded and maimed thousands of others, and
killed more than 10,000 innocent Iraqis has anything decent to
say about freedom and democracy? Does “Bring-em-on-Bush” have
should we believe this killer of the environment in our beautiful
country? He lives
in a state of the art, environmentally correct home and acreage – but
he doesn’t want to share with us. Is that a piggy way to behave
should we believe he cares about our children with his incredibly
of money) schools testing program? What is the goal of this testing?
Is he trying to put certain children into certain slots? Like
the old days when kids were divided into butterflies and bumble
bees? Certainly he has a lot of nerve given that he was no Einstein
in school and ignorantly bragged about being the president with
C grades. Was he the Child Left Behind? What idiot would think
he’s serious about education?
Bush has cut so many important budget items for the poor and
the military veterans;
made decent health care worse; catered to his funders from the
pharmaceutical industry thus insuring that seniors will have
to pay more and more for their medicines; degraded the Bill of
Rights and Constitution with the un-Patriot Act; bowed out of
treaties; winked when his corporate pals took their money offshore;
gave foreign investment opportunities to his buddies, etc. Now
he’s going after Social Security, Medicare, Public Education. He’s
a whirling dervish trying to bankrupt our country. What does
he care? He has loads of cash and connections to fly off to
some island to live high on the hog while we’re all here trying
to figure out which flim-flam was the one that did us in.
Bush-men don’t seem
to get that it’s the economy, stupid – or that Peace and Dialogue
are far better solutions to problems than War !
I say more? Are
you angry yet?
we’ve been minding
our business, trying to live good lives and make a living for
our families, the State of Our Union has been messed with. We
can do something about one thing that will probably cure a lot
of the wrongs: NO MORE BUSH – In 2004 – Forevermore!
for a special going-away gift how about tickets to Mars or
the Moon or even Guantanamo
for the Man and his Favorite People! Now, there’s an idea, export
THEM for a change!
