Quite some time ago, September 2, 2005, I wrote a post titled ‘President Death’ wherein I discussed Mr. Bush and his use of the suffering, maiming and death of others to further his political agenda. Those of us who are familiar with history understand that this is nothing new amongst those who would rule us. The oligarchy, the ‘invisible conspiracy’, the patriarchy, Fascists, Communists, the ReichWing conspiracy in our nation, all have been using our fears and insecurities in attempts to control the political process.I decided to repost the original and add on some thoughts in light of President Death’s visit to exploit and attempt to profit from address the pain and agony which now fills the minds of many from the Blacksburg mass murder.
Well, as James Carville said quite some time ago: Have ya had enough? ‘Cause if ya ain’t President Death and his band of vile sycophants are going to just keep on shoveling the death, destruction and corruption of everything most Americans believe about themselves and their nation right down your throat. Shining City on the Hill….don’t make me puke. Our nation is now reviled by billions of people all over the world thanks to President Death’s foreign policy: An evil amalgam of colonialism masquerading as “globalization”; racism masquerading as “The War on Terror; hubris masquerading as “The Project for a New American Century”. So far it has cost our nation thousands of American lives, hundreds of billions of dollars and worst of all any moral authority we once had to show the citizens of this dying planet a better way. I hate to say it but President Death is just getting warmed up. He’s already done the following: Destroyed the government’s ability to educate it’s citizens; allowed industry to go on a pollution spree which will kill hundreds of thousands of American citizens in the years to come; put in place a plan to make our National Park system a profit center of corporate America; gutted basic funding for Homeland Security to pay for his bloodbath in Iraq. And now while thousands of Americans are dying here in America due to, yet again, his illegal war his henchmen in the Congress propose to send the government into bankruptcy by repealing the estate tax. And he had the insufferable gall to call upon “folks” to make charitable contributions to help the victims of Katrina. Do you understand? President Death is saying that we the people having already paid our taxes in the expectation of public safety, public health and Homeland Security need, must, because he says so, dig into our wallets again and shell out to succor those in need throughout the Gulf States. The money you already sent to D.C. has been spent. Spent on tax giveaways to the richest 1% of Americans. Spent on killing women and children in Iraq. Spent to pay Halliburton and other war profiteers for the financial support of President Death and the Vile Cheney. Are you willing to do that? Are you willing to sit back and let President Death continue to kill and maim thousands in his insane attack on anything and everything his damaged brain perceives as threat. I am not. I will do whatever I can to oppose this madman. March, write letters, demonstrate, donate to the opposition. Whatever it takes.
And to those who would say: ‘Oh…there’s nothing I can do.’ ‘Oh…I’m too busy’ or anything other than: “I’m ready to fight!”
I say: You are part of the problem, not the solution.
So, here we are almost two years later, 650,000 dead Iraqi’s, over 3200 dead American soldiers and President Death, a dead man walking in the polls, feel constrained to visit Blacksburg. To do what? To act as he did to help the victims of Katrina?
Here’s my post on that:
Res Ipsa Loquitor
The title of this post is a Latin phrase, much favored by lawyers, for “the thing speaks for itself”. Things are so bad, so horrific thanks to President Death, that some in the MSM are finally starting to speak up for the dead. The dead this President and no one else bears responsibility for. Editors in particular have become aware that President Death truly has no clothes. Indeedy, there are some who getting a little snippish don’t you know. Newsweek pretty much destroys President Death’s ill-deserved reputation for “leadership”. I thought the President going to bed early Tuesday night while New Orleans descended into despair, chaos, and ultimately death showed Mr. Bush as he truly is: An ignorant prig of a man with no more concern for the citizens he took the Presidential oath to protect than he would have for mass of cockroaches Laura found in their bathroom while she rooted around for the last of her Zoloft. His only real concern throughout his Presidency has been leading his cronies to more profits. Well…to be absolutely fair the President does also love to wave the bloody shirt of 9/11. Now would be a good time to start talking about removing President Death from office. Daydream you say? Well….maybe not. Call you congressperson. Do it tomorrow! Tell them President Death must go. Flash Update: That it came to this is beyond my comprehension. President Death belongs in a jail cell.
Well, we haven’t hustled him off to jail quite yet an so we get to here his vile world view expressed through the ever compliant megaphone of the corporatist media. The folks that brought you Don ‘Nappy-headed Hos’ Imus and who still bring you Rush ‘Pills’ Limbaugh, Bill O’Lielly, Hannity and Coulter and all the rest of the ReThug airwave scumbags.
Here is President Death speaking today:
‘It’s impossible to make sense of such violence and suffering. Those whose lives were taken did nothing to deserve their fate. They were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now they’re gone — and they leave behind grieving families, and grieving classmates, and a grieving nation.’
Yeah, impossible it is. So I won’t even try I could care less about you and how you feel. I’m here for the photo op.
‘And on this terrible day of mourning, it’s hard to imagine that a time will come when life at Virginia Tech will return to normal. But such a day will come. And when it does, you will always remember the friends and teachers who were lost yesterday, and the time you shared with them, and the lives they hoped to lead.’
Move along, nothing to see here. Why the hell did the taxpayers pay hundreds of thousands to send this fool and his retinue of armed guards to Blacksburg where he mouths empty platitudes about ‘life…returning to normal…’.
Well, it might have something to do with this………..
The man is an embarrassment to our nation. This pious hand wringing, yeah I left out all the God-Talk he spewed, in nothing more than a disgusting pander to those of his base who still believe him a ‘good Christian man…’ If there is one thing this slimeball is not it’s a good any gotdamn thing
