"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant." ~ John Stuart Mill
Oh That; Don"t Even Worry About That!
One of my favorite movies is Pulp Fiction, and one of my favorite scenes from the movie is the one at Jimmy's house, just after Marvin's head is blown off. Jules and Vincent are at Jimmy's house, and Jules is trying to smooth Jimmy over for bringing a dead body to his house. Jimmy is not buying the bullshit and gets mad about the dead guy in his garage. Just then Jules looks at Jimmy and he says, oh that; don't even worry about that!
This has pretty much been the attitude of the Bush regime since day one. When anything goes wrong, Bush simply says, oh that; don't even worry about that! When planes were being flown into the World Trade Center , Bush said, oh that; don't even worry about that! When he shifted attention to Saddam Hussein and Iraq , people questioned him and he said, oh that; don't even worry about that! When he said the war would be quick and inexpensive, and then it was long and expensive, he said, oh that; don't even worry about that! When 400 tons of explosives turned up missing, he said, oh that; don't even worry about that!
Now he is going to ask for $75 billion more for the 'war' in Iraq , on top of the fortune already looted from us for this obscene injustice, bringing the total to well over $200 billion. I know, oh that; don't even worry about that! The civilian casualties alone in Iraq are over 100,000 people, not to mention our casualties or those of our allies. Yes, I know. Oh that; don't even worry about that!
Of course, while Bush is busy defending his father's honor in Iraq , and making Halliburton richer, there are a lot of other serious things going on in this country. The economy is in the tank, gas prices are through the roof, rogue countries are testing nukes, and we are on the verge of another possible 'terrorist' attack. Oh that; don't even worry about that!
Who but a fool could actually think this man is fit to be in charge of anything, much less a country? He has the IQ of an idiot savant, only more idiot than savant. Only in America could William Hung be a superstar, and George Bush be elected President.
When asked if he had made any mistakes as President, Bush just stared into space with that brain dead, deer-caught-in-the-headlights look in his eyes, and you just knew what he was thinking. Oh that; don't even worry about that!
We are now just days away from another democracy fraud known as an election. Bush has no record to run on, no mandate, and no answers for why we are in such a quagmire. I think a good campaign slogan for him would be, oh that; don't even worry about that!
