Has anyone else noticed that the price of gas as Bush is leaving office is nearing the price it was when he was appointed (some may say anointed) president in 2000?
It seems he will leave office with at least that one factor of American life returned to the way it was when he started, everything else has more or less gone down the toilet.
Good riddance to him and his nuclear and extended crime family, and may he someday learn to pronounce nuclear.
….But, you might not like the results…
O.K., raise your hand if you’ve ever heard someone refer to the idiot in the White House as a simple tool.
Umm, all of you, huh?
Stick with this, it’s going to make some sense soon. For a basic overview of the theory, read Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s book “Sirens of Titan”, wherein a stranded spaceship contains some space folks that use sort of a remote control to guide the life of a kid to cause him to be an astronaut who as an adult will fly to the moon with a odd shaped piece of metal (he found as a kid) that he had kept as a lucky charm. This kids entire live had be orchestrated to deliver him with that piece of metal to the aliens so they could fix their ship and go home.
Please note that I read that book only once at least 25 years and 10 to 12 acid trips ago, so some of the names, places, details, etc. might be a bit off the mark, but the analogy stands.
Now, here are a few of the elements to the connection that might take a little Google work on your end. If you saw and understood my previous post on Google, you’ll also understand that searching these names may get your name on a list that may put you in a bind later, but I think it’s worth it.
1. The artificially created (some say stolen) country known as Saudi Arabia.
2. The Carlyle Group, includes James Baker and #3 below.
3. George Herbert Walker Bush (name usually preceded by “Papa”), senior advisor for the Carlyle Group.
4. George Walker Bush (name usually preceded by “That Asshole” or followed by “That Idiot”)
5. Sadam Hussain / Iraq
Well, the circle, and it is one, flows like this:
The Saudi’s have incredible piles of money from the oil under their feet.
The Carlyle Group, sort of like the Illuminati of legend, a group of super wealthy folks that intend to keep it and make more no matter who they have to crush to do so, manage this Saudi Gold mine and do it’s bidding worldwide.
Papa George H. W. Bush, a part of the Carlysle Group, passes the family wealth to:
That Asshole George W. Bush, an even simpler tool of the Carlyle Group.
Saddam Hussein, one truly evil guy that thought he could out bad the Carlyle Group and take out the Saudi regime, followed by ……
Iran, looking to jump into the void left by the well hung Saddam Hussein, perhaps to take us back to 1. By becoming the new threat to Saudi Arabia, they are now in the sights of the Carlyle Group.
The good news?
You will not be going to serve in Iraq.
You’ve been assigned to duty as a motorcycle officer in the next Bush motorcade.
The worse news?
You and your motorcycle are going to Iraq, and Condoleezza Rice will be riding on the back as you shuttle her around on her next mission seeking peace in a place that has never seen it before!
Going to need new underwear?
I’d be looking into Kevlar with a Depends liner.
Hey, make that Adios, el
Well, another rat has jumped off the good ship Booosh.
Gusano, er… sorry, make that Gonzales, has joined the previous inner reich that have left the gang to spend more time with their families, or more likely, with their legal advisers.
Hey Condi, getting a little lonely now are we?
It’s looking more and more like that song kids learned in school long ago, way before it was politically incorrect; sing along if you can remember the words:
10 little, 9 little, 8 little indians…………..
……and then there was one little idiot boy.
Get the tar and feathers ready….
If you know me, you’re really not going to believe this!!
There is now a valid reason on the table for me to vote for a republican candidate. This is, for what (in my so-so memory) will be the first time in my life, that I could even get close to picking someone from the dark side.
Yesterday, I had a short job doing the sound recording of an interview with a Republican presidential hopeful, the former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
So, was it merely my being in the same room that made me consider breaking my own record of never putting my stamp on the party of the elephant?
Ummm, no. In the past, I’ve been in the same room with Bush the (somewhat) wiser and Bush the (complete) idiot, and never had a thought in that direction.
What it was, was, that after taking a photo of him, and then one with him, I handed him my camera and asked him if he would take a photo of me.
This was for bragging rights.
That is, if somehow he were to be elected, I could show that picture and say “This photo of me was taken by the President Of The United States“.
So, that’s how Rudy got
his red nose… Oops, I mean, my vote.
Just for the record Mr. Giuliani, don’t give up your day job just yet. Rudy (Look! We’re on a first name basis) had said while framing up the shot, that photography was a hobby of his.
Let’s just say that after looking at that photo he took, and taking into consideration that since it was a point and shoot type camera, composition was his only choice, it might not be a good career move.
Keeping it a hobby might not be a bad idea.
For the record (part II)…. He’s actually a very personable guy, and a bit taller than you might think from the press photos.
I could have a catch with him (that’s a baseball term, not a personals ad for a threeway).
By the way, don’t bother looking around for that snapshot of me.
I could show it to you, but then I’d have to kill you (if you didn’t die laughing first).
Just hot off the press, er.. make that fresh off the ‘net!
Another rat announces that he’s about to jump off the sinking ship of state.
The living Pillsbury dough boy, that walking waterbed known as Karl Rove, has announced that he’s leaving his un-elected office soon. Is this because he’s been outed?
Or maybe because he needs to spend some more time with his family? Or with his lawyer?
Here’s an advance question for his eventual (couldn’t be a day too soon for me) funeral:
Will he be buried face down so his friends will recognize him?
Added material early 8-15-07: Showing that Turdblossom will always be his butt boy, good ol’ W had this outpouring of emotion (thanks to Reuters.ca):
Bush, before heading with his friend of 34 years to start a two-week Texas vacation, said, “We’re still going to be friends … I’ll be on the road behind you here in a little bit.”
“On the road behind you” indeed.
Would that friend be on the Hershey Highway by chance?
Is Karl going to reacharound behind himself from now on?
All these questions and more to be dealt with in the near future.
In a news report today, Gen. David H. Petraeus (sort of a coincidence, but it rhymes with Betray Us), the commander in Iraq, still insists that everything is O.K. and the war effort is going well for us there. Somehow, nearly 20 percent of the population of America will continue to support the commander in chimp in whatever he says, goose stepping their way to 2008. I’m starting to lose hope of seeing Dubya frog marched out of the White House along with his partner, blood clot boy.
Marching in that same conga line, Republican Senator John McCain has formally launched his US presidential campaign to nowhere. Long ago, I had great respect for him as a former prisoner of war who made it through several tough years, now I view him as either a updated “Manchurian Candidate” that has had his implanted orders start taking effect, or just another burnout political whore who felt the need to embrace the Christian right wing and become the new leader of the Dubya base idiots. Either way, I wish him well, and fast travel on his way to oblivion.
Still blooming in the news, our war heroes are shown to be just humans with slanted or fabricated news coverage made up to take the attention away from what a terrible decision it was to launch this war based on lies. Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch were used as pawns in that game, it’s been long known that Tillman was killed by friendly fire with the details obscured by fellow Rangers that were ordered to lie, the true story in the news today as his brother faced the press. And Lynch, caught up in a cover-up where the true story was whitewashed to hide what really happened, is finally trying to get the real story told.
As the truth of these and other Bushwar problems continue to surface, I have to wonder if we will ever find out what keeps our resident (I still can’t call him president) from being impeached. If nothing else, the videos shown today of his frantic dancing, if you will give him the benefit of the doubt as to what was going on, on a stage where with a lot of spastic movement it seems that he’s trying to drum his way out of trouble as Laura glances at him with her resolution fading by the moment.
To those that live in the rest of the world, try to understand that most of us here in the U.S. are truly sorry. You have no idea exactly how very very sorry, but please forgive us for the next few years. I just hope that we can make it until then.
And, so it goes………..
At the risk of being called a racist and losing my radio show…. Hey, wait, I don’t have a radio show to lose, so no worries. Is anyone else catching the action that’s going on to keep the news occupied with anything other than what the powers that be are doing, in the middle East for example?
News flash: Don Imus is an asshole. He always was, this is not late breaking news to most people that have listened to his screed over the years, but now he’s the attention magnet. What he said was not nice to African Americans or woman, but it’s what he said, which I think is covered under Freedom Of Speech, if that’s still in what’s left of the Constitution of the USA. Now every wannabe asshole feels free to blow it way out of proportion so that they can grab their 15 minutes of fame. Sorry Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, somehow you became the unrequested speakers for blacks everywhere, take your problematic religion, and all of the problems it causes, somewhere else.
My take is simple, get over it, walk it off. There’ve been many far more terrible things said, and there will be even more in the future, stop letting words that people say drive everything, punish the people that do actual deeds. And by the way, Stevie Wonder had used most of that that reviled term in the lyrics of one of his songs that I think was about Duke Ellington, Count Basie, or some other ’30′s, ’40′s or ’50′s big band singer (sorry to not have more information, just not my musical interest), the line he sang went something like: “When I was a Nappy headed little boy…..”, and the term “Hoe’s” has for a long time been a part of comedy bits and rap / hip-hop lyrics that are used every day without notice.
And the Duke lacrosse team has been found not guilty after almost a year. They were tried in the press with, again, the same screaming Harpies looking for blood from some one, for something that now has been shown to have never happened. This, along with Mr. Blockhead and his Anna Nicole baby sure made good press though, it certainly took attention away from that little charming Latino, Alberto Gonzales. And those missing +/- 5 million eMails. And that cute butterball Rove. And the ongoing loss of civilian life around the world. And……. fill in the blank.
Today, we have to deal with a pile of Terrible news about the shootings in Virginia. Yes, this deserves some column inches in the paper for a day or so, and also some time on the airwaves as well. And so it goes, let’s move on and try to not make it anything but what it is, a nutcase went on a shooting spree and some people are dead. More Americans in the military die in Iraq / Afghanistan, Bumfuckistan, wherever in that part of the world every month to protect American Oil interests. Well over 3,000 so far, where’s the outcry?
Locally, a Los Angeles t.v. news show spent a lot of time reflecting on how something similar, but on a somewhat smaller scale, happened on a campus near here 31 years ago, and then the newsreader spent more time interviewing people at that school, most of whom were not even born at the time it occured, for their opinions on something that happened a continent away. The interesting thing now will be to see if “W”, in all his weepy sorrow that he expressed at the service in Virginia today, will now have said anything about making it even just a little more difficult for people to buy guns. What do you think?
This is a comment I posted on the Dilbert blog earlier today, after Scott Adams asked about the difference between our form of government and the one they have in Iran, I thought it was worth posting here. Also, I’m working really long hours on a film and in truth I don’t have the energy to write another word today, so here it is in all its copied and pasted glory:
Here in the U.S. we have a “President” that’s in office thanks to either the “Supreme Court” or a company that manufactures vote counting machines and is owned by a person with ties to donations to a certain political party, depending on who you choose to believe. This “President” is also in the 2nd place in our power structure, ruled over by the “Vice President” who is appointed by the “Corporations”, these actually make the decisions that run the country.
You might remember when there was a question about the “President” having some sort of bump on his back during the debates, that’s just the accidently left open trap door to where the person doing the actual thinking puts his hand in to make it seem like the “President” is making his own movements or speach.
The “Vice President” isn’t really a good ventriloquist, as you can see by how he can’t manage to keep his mouth to be level as he tries to make it look like he’s not the one who’s actually speaking. If he was really good, he could drink a glass of water while the dummy, ooops, the “President” was speaking. I’ve never seen this happen yet. The “President” on the other hand (the one that most likely belongs to the bloated creature known as “Rove”), has known problems just eating a pretzel, even when he’s not speaking. Or snorting, for that matter.
So, getting to your question about which system is better, it’s like asking someone if they want to be thrown into a cage full of lions or a cage full of tigers (any other Detroit sport teams besides the Pistons to add to this analogy?). In the end, no pun intended, we’re all just so much shit on the bottom of a cage to the ones that really do run things. Me? I’m going in to the tar and feather retailing business, I think there’s going to be a really big demand for these items sometime in 2008.
