When the first words are lies….
…… Where do you expect it to go from there?
Here’s the very start of a radio address (hey, remember radio?), it was given today by the worst president in the history of the United States of America. No joke. The worst. Ever.
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Congress will soon vote on legislation to fund our troops serving on the front lines of the war on terror. This is an opportunity for Congress to give our men and women in uniform the tools they need to protect us, and Congress should approve these vital funds immediately.
Resident Bush claims that the congress was voting on support for the troops, but it’s actually voting for ongoing support to be given to the mega corporations that run our country, those same ones that are busy pulling the strings on the dummy in chief….. How long has this war been going on? Why do our troops still lack body armor, better protection in their vehicles, the tools they need, etc, etc, etc at this late date?
Could it be that these missing items don’t have the (pardon the pun) bang for the buck return to the folks that profit from this mess?
Talking about pulling the dummy, I guess that a hand job given to a leader of an oil producing country is not the “stimulus” it once was, or that Bush thought it would be this time, since we are now bent even further over the virtual oil barrel than anyone could have ever imagined.
Maybe Bush should have tried using his head (long overdue) for something other than a place to keep that phony cowboy hat balanced?
A few days ago I predicted gas would be hitting $5.00 a gallon in the Los Angeles area before Thanksgiving, but I guess I should have made that “Father’s Day”, as photos on the front page of the paper that keeps Ms. Tina Daunt from living in her car showed the price to be $5.09 and 9/10ths for super unleaded, and 30 cents a gallon more for diesel fuel. Who could have predicted that I’d get conservative in my predictions made in my glory years?
Seems that it’s about time to get the Schwinn out of the garage and cleaned up for my local trips.
