Shame On George Bush Part 1
New Bush Same As The Old Bush

Shame on George W. Bush, yesterday in a speech before the Veterans of Foreign Wars he said he should not be held accountable for the lies he and his administration propagated in order to start a war against Iraq. He said he should not be held accountable for the thousands of American deaths or the tens of thousands of American injuries that are the result of those lies. Shame on George Bush for saying that to tell the truth about his deceit would bring, “comfort to our adversaries.” Shame on George Bush for saying it is irresponsible for pointing out his many lies. When he says, “The American people know the difference between responsible and irresponsible debate when they see it. They know the difference between honest critics who question the way the war is being prosecuted and partisan critics who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil, or because of Israel, or because we misled the American people,”he delves even deeper into his world of deception and depravity.

Shame on George Bush for hiding behind the troops he demands to risk their lives in a war based on his lies. He says, “This war began with a sudden attack on September the 11th, 2001.” That is not true. It has been proven many times over that Iraq and Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11. This war began on Thursday, March 20, 2003, though it had been planned for at least 12 years earlier.

Shame on George Bush for implying that he supplied our troops with all the necessary equipment and supplies they needed. He said, “And we must continue to provide these troops with all the resources they need to defend our nation and prevail in the global war on terror.” This is another lie. He didn’t send them with the proper resources and he still has not provided them. Soldiers’ families to this day are still supplying body and vehicular protective armor to their sons, daughters, husbands, and wives who are risking their lives in the contrived Bush War.

Shame on George Bush just for being George Bush, he has shirked responsibility and the truth his whole adult life. He never admits his mistakes. He denies them until some benefactor bails him out. Even though his father got him into the Texas Air National Guard in order to avoid Vietnam, this was too demanding for George. He went AWOL for a year and then had the temerity to ask for and receive an early discharge. He claims to have been a successful businessman yet every venture he started failed until someone like a Saudi prince or the Harvard Corporation came to his rescue. He claims to be anti-corruption yet he made almost a million dollars on insider trading of Harken Oil. Had his dad not been President he most likely would have been brought to trial by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He claims to be a defender of private property and for lowering taxes. Yet while he was involved with the Texas Rangers baseball team he asked for and received eminent domain to get land to build a stadium and a sales tax to pay for building it.

Shame on George Bush, America deserves much better than him and his radical supporters.

The Epitaph Of Tom DeLay
He Who Lives By Corruption Dies By Corruption

The king is dead, long live the king. Well, not really, we desperately need a new king and a new court in January 2007. Do not consider this a ringing endorsement of the Democratic Party but rather a condemnation the totally corrupt Republican Party. As of today the Democrats are just the lesser of two evils albeit much less. There is nothing in their recent history to suggest that the Democrats understand this or if they do that they will act upon it. But we can always hope; we don’t even have that under the current regime. The Republican Party has so damaged the fabric of our society that we are on the last throes of life support, only the Democrats offer any chance of resuscitation.

There are those who will say that the Republicans and Tom DeLay only fell victim to Lord Acton’s famous observation that, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” This has been proven true time after time, but it does not apply to our current predicament. The GOP was taken over by thugs, bullies, liars, and cheats. They were already corrupt before taking power. Since then they have continually infused their poisonous bile throughout the body politic. Tom Delay is a perfect example. He was a corrupt coward and bully long before being elected House Majority Whip in 1994. In fact that is why he was elected Whip.

In quintessential Karl Rove-Orwellian doublethink DeLay had this to say when he capitulated and was forced to stand down for reelection as House Majority Leader, "During my time in Congress, I have always acted in an ethical manner within the rules of our body and the laws of our land.” It shows the contempt which he and his fellow Republicans hold for the American people, for he has been admonished by the House 3 separate times and is currently under indictment in Texas. The only reason he has not been kicked out of Congress is because the Republicans are in control. It remains to be seen if his next term is in the ‘big house’.

Lets face it, DeLay could not find a code of ethics if it were tattooed on his rear end and he had an aircraft carrier full of searchlights and the entire 7th fleet to help him. DeLay has made a habit of lying and breaking the law his entire adult life. He was sited by the IRS on multiple occasions for not paying income taxes and for not paying the payroll taxes when he owned an exterminating business (Albo Pest Control). He was twice taken to court by business associates for fraud and cheating and he had to pay court imposed settlements. In one case he lied under oath, this after he was elected to Congress.

DeLay is now and always has been a true believer of the Bush credo,”No sacrifice is too great for others to make.” A prime example in his life would be his fervent support for sending American troops to Iraq. Yet when he had a chance during the Vietnam War to fight for the ideals he paid lip service to, he took a pass. He used student deferments and a high lottery draft number (312) to fight the ‘red menace’ from deep within the heart of Texas. He later claimed that he tried to enlist but all the spots had been taken by minorities who wanted and needed the ‘work’.

Thomas Dale DeLay liar, thief, bully, and coward is politically dead. He lived by corruption; he died by corruption.

Ticket To Paradise
Daniel Webster v Pat Robertson et al

Several clergymen both real and fictional have been making headlines recently. Pat Robertson never one to have his foot out of his mouth for very long has done it yet again. In fact this condition has become so commonplace he will probably require surgery to have it removed. Mr. Robertson’s ailment is not a recent malady. He has been afflicted with it his entire life. In fact he most likely inherited it from his outspoken racist father, A. Willis Robertson, U.S. Senator from Virginia for 20 years (1946-1966). Pat’s elitist and racist politics have never strayed from the bigoted ideas of his father.

It is way past time for the Christian community to stand up against the un-Christian rantings and deeds of Mr. Robertson and other charlatans like Jerry Falwell and James Dobson. Their teachings are of politics based on power and prestige taken by the few to the detriment of the many. Any resemblance to their diatribes and the teachings of Christ is coincidental and mainly unintentional. They always add a speck of truth to their systematic lies in hopes of giving legitimacy to their false agenda and propaganda. A perfect example is their claim that Christianity is under attack in America. That is definitely true. What is not true is their claim that the attack comes from the left and a ‘liberal’ media. The attack comes from themselves and other members of the radical right that preach hate and divisiveness by instilling fear into their followers. All one has to do is read the New Testament to see that that Mr. Robertson et al are not the purveyors of truth that they claim to be but are the disseminators lies and false teachings. Don’t take my word for it, read the Gospels and decide for yourself. Do not think this is an attempt to proselytize on my part for it is not. I seek not to convert but only to point out the vast discrepancies between the teachings of the ‘Religious Right’ and the teachings of Christ.

The Book of Daniel, a TV show about the life of an Episcopalian clergyman, Daniel Webster, had its premier Friday. It debuted to wide spread criticism from the extreme right. They attacked it with a vengeance. TV stations in Indiana and Arkansas refused to air it. I loved it; it depicted the state of the ‘Church’ with an irreverence that needs to be shown much more often. Jesus walked on water; today’s Church is at best up to its neck in raging torrents. The Church has for centuries been more concerned with institutional dogma and power rather than living up to the ideals of Christ. This program shows the Webster family with all its human frailties trying to deal with such a situation. They do it by truly loving and caring for each other. It is a dark comedy but a comedy nonetheless. It shows the paradoxes and absurdities of life. I burst out laughing several times. I found myself disgusted several times.

The show was summed up when Christ told Daniel, “Life is hard for everyone.” That is something we should all be aware of. And if we are we should soften our hearts like Daniel Webster and family. Given an option of going on the stairway to heaven tended by Pat Robertson or Daniel Webster, I choose Daniel.
