A Sermon Straight from Pastor GW Bush
God wants me to privatize Social Security
God woke me up last night and said to me:
“George, it is time to take the money from the lock box and put it in the hands of those who need it the most”
“George”, he said, “You need to make sure the great stock brokers of the world can keep their mansions in Long Island”
“George”, he continued,” You need to make sure the great corporate CEO’s get to keep their ski chalets in Vail and Aspen and in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the home state of my servant and your boss, Dick Cheney
“George, I want you to take money away from Social Security and make sure the stocks of Hewlett-Packard and Dow Chemical and all of the other good men of C-FIT (Coalition for Fair International Taxation – see John Stossel’s lies on 20/20) rise and rise and rise in my glory”
“I will send you help on your mission George.”
“I will send you the good men and the sexy, but not slutty women of FOX NEWS.”
“I will put at your disposal the great Right Wing Corporate Voices of greed and selfishness that control the airwaves of America”
“I will send you Rush Limbaugh”
“I will send you Sean Hannity”
“I will send you Laura Ingram, Bill Bennett, and many, many others”
“I will even let you have my greatest messenger, Michael Savage”
“George, I will have you do this while Halliburton completes the mission I gave to them – to empty the Iraqi desert of the oil that can bring the Iraqi people the Freedom and Liberty they crave and you promised, but they can’t have”
“George”, he said, “I want you to use every means at your disposal to make sure the poor stay as they should – poor”
“I want you to make it hard for the people in the middle class to stay in the middle class”
“I want you to make sure that NO ONE has the right to see a doctor when they are sick, unless, of course, they can afford it”
“I want you to make sure that those who are falsely accused get a fair trial and have a 25 year old lawyer, fresh out of law school at their disposal and plead guilty to a crime they might not have committed”
“After all, they have to get experience somewhere”
“I want you to send all the people on the various death rows to their end NOW”
“You’re going to need the jail space”
“George, I want you to pander to the religious right”
“I want you to make them promises that you have no intention of keeping”
“Tell them you’re compassionate, then take away after school funding”
“Tell them to retrain for new jobs, then send those jobs to the heathens overseas”
“Do this for me George. I command you,” He said.
“The I awoke, and I saw the Big Guy himself.”
“And he told me his name”
“And that name is…
More Budget Woes
I think it would be good to
note that, while Bush
pretended to be sympathetic to low income working moms, his budget reveals that
he is trying to cut back the food stamps and child care benefits they receive in
order to expand tax cuts for the wealthy. Paul Krugman makes this point very
well in his editorial in the New York Times.
"One of the proposed spending cuts (in the new budget proposed by President Bush) would make it harder for working families with children to receive food stamps, terminating aid for about 300,000 people. Another would deny child care assistance to about 300,000 children, again in low-income working families."
"It will proceed with the phaseout of two little-known tax provisions - originally put in place under the first President George Bush - that limit deductions and exemptions for high-income households."
"More than half of the benefits from this backdoor tax cut would go to people with incomes of more than a million dollars; 97 percent would go to people with incomes exceeding $200,000." -Paul Krugman, The New York Times, February 11, 2005

"February 2 was Groundhog
Day and the State of the Union Address. It is an ironic juxtaposition: one
involves a meaningless ritual in which
we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication and the other involves a groundhog."

"After a lot of yada, yada, doo, the answer is quite simply NONE. They get all of the breaks on the theory that they benevolently create jobs (yeah right!)."
I'm sure all the farmer's (let's not forget the farm subsidies being cut) who voted for them will be happy to get these "jobs"....I'm waiting for them to get outraged---after all they put them in office, but then again with no farms, maybe they can send their kids to fight "terror" for us all...that would be poetic justice in my eyes.
The Dem's better wake up and go to the people that this affects the most, get their quotes out on the airwaves...especially those that supported the shrub in the first place.
THE MONSTER STILL LIVES!
The head of the terrorist monster is the life of
Osama bin-Laden. We have cut off many of the
monster’s tentacles, but they grow back. We need to get the head of the
bin-Laden Monster, so when other monsters attempt
to come out of their caves, they might think twice. Until we get the
bin-Laden Monster, all of the other monsters have
hope, and hope is a dangerous thing for a terrorist monster to have.
This is something that the Bushies don't understand. Or maybe, because they let have already him slip through their hands at least once, it's just spin.
Stupid Quotes of the Day
"An idea to convene talks among the five countries (US, Japan, Russia, China and South Korea) excluding North Korea has emerged within the U.S. government,"
-Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun
That's a great idea! Let's talk amongst ourselves while North Korea makes nukes and thumbs their nose at the rest of the world.
When will the World realize that Kim Jong Il IS the World's most dangerous rogue leader and dispose of him before it's too late. Whether this maniac has nuclear weapons or not is of no consequence because he truly does seek them, he won't be satisfied until he has them, and, if threatened he will unquestionably use them.
If there was ever a dictator that needs to be removed, it is him. It might have been a good idea to rid the planet of Saddam Hussein (no matter how many times the reason changes), but it is a necessity to rid the world of Kim Jon g Il.
