a few words from Dustin

Ah, hell.

O.K. I need to vent. Perhaps I shouldn't be writing anything right now, because I'm so fucking pissed off this will surely be nothing but a belligerent rant.

So be it.

My hatred for Bush at this point simply knows no bounds. None. If he gets decapitated and his headless body is tossed in a dumpster somewhere, I will simply smile (and, should I happen to be eating a chili dog and a milkshake while passing said dumpster, I will toss them in and stroll along on my merry way).


(I know, I’m being silly: there’s not enough room for a headline that long.)

I think every media pundit has to start repeating on an hourly basis: "Bush actually DID vote for the Eleventy Seventy Gazillion -- BEFORE he voted AGAINST it!"

(The odds that this will happen? ... Free trip to "Club Gi™o" [as Rush would say] for the winning answer!)


So more than 60% of the public (and surely 90+% of the world public) wants to see an end to the bloody and fruitless military occupation of Iraq. (Loons.) The majority in Congress decide to play make-believe for a little while and pretend that we actually live in a representative democracy, and so quickly pass a bill giving Bush even more money than he asked for to fund his obscene and imperial war of choice.

What does Bush do?


O.K.: Here’s what he SHOULD have done:

BUSH: “Oh my god, I can’t thank you enough – I thought you were going to cut off funding, or … or worse! To IMPEACH me! I know my approval ratings have hovered at around 30-35% for the last couple years, and Dick’s at about 20%. I know this war is ridiculously unpopular, was launched on a flimsy pretext of lies and propaganda, has now lasted longer than our involvement in WWII with no end in sight, is draining our treasury, destroying our military, eroding what’s left of our confidence and has obliterated any support we may have once had on this planet… I know no sane person finds it credible that “faulty intelligence” led us into this war – and maybe I shouldn’t have given the Medal Of Freedom to the guy I constantly blame for the failure… But, but, but, … well, God Almighty! Just, thank you! Thank you! Please don’t investigate me! Please, please just keep the money flowin’ like this, and everything’ll be just fine!”…..

No. He doesn’t even condescend to the level of saying: “I appreciate that the Democrats have finally come around to realizing the significance of this War on Terror….” (Which is what I would have expected him to say.)

How naïve I am. No.

He fucking vetoes it.


Apparently he's an anti-American troop hater.

What's that?

Oh, that's not among the choices?

Oh, sorry, I FORGOT!: It's the DEMOCRATS who hate America and the troops.
And THAT'S why they want to bring them home to their families, and to hold accountable the elitist criminal chickenhawk thugs responsible for the troops BEING in the fucking war in the FIRST place! Clearly, they would like nothing more than for all our troops to be shot in the face and lit on fire while bleeding to death – nothing could be more apparent. And even if they actually DO want the troops to come home (which I highly doubt), it’s only because they want to shoot them in the face and/or strangle them to death THEMSELVES [before lighting them on fire] – so boundless is their hatred for our troops.

No, everyone knows how much Bush loves and "supports our troops." After all, he reminds us every chance he gets. (Golly, I wonder how many yellow ribbon magnets HE’S got on his limo??...)

He must have had some other reason...

It must have just been too much money -- those spend-thrift Democrats are picking the pocket of YOU, Mr. and Mrs. America! Hey! He didn't ask for THAT much! That's just outlandish, blowing up and/or lighting on fire THAT quantity of money in a crater in a desert 3000 miles away in order to liberate a people who want us to leave?! And NON-WHITE PEOPLE, at that??!! Stupid extravagant Democrats. It's the same old Tax and Spend (™) policy! ...
Oh, wait, BUSH is the one responsible for a projected $2 trillion decicit for his illegal and immoral war. (Or at the very least, without the further "emergency" funding, the current and uncontroversial figure is $400+ Billion…) And – oh, yeah! THAT'S right! It's Bush that is so competent and responsible with YOUR money that he has YET TO INCLUDE the funding for his half-assed war of aggression [on the one country in the region with no ties to terrorism] in the ACTUAL FEDERAL BUDGET! Oh yeah, I forgot about that! Well, he musta forgot. [Budget Schmudget – that’s what MY gut says!] THAT'S why he has to keep asking Congress every fucking year for another "Emergency Supplemental Spending Bill" – WHICH, if the Democrats even try to DEBATE or DISPUTE it — let alone raise questions about the real purpose being to steal from the poor and give to the rich oil-baron-and-weapons-contractor cronies of the Liar In Chief — then OF COURSE they don't "Support The Troops™”. ...

When the “Emergency Supplemental Iraq War Spending Bill of 2012” comes up for a vote, who do YOU think will vote against Our Troops? You guessed it. The DEMOCRATS. I’m willing to be my right nut on it. [And that’s my only nut, by the way.]

O.K. So, at this point not so much an "emergency," then. … That’s right, this is the fourth year running now… Hmm… Still… Hold on, now…..

Anyway. The point is, the Democrats hate America. They hate the flag, they hate baseball, they hate jazz, they hate Apple Pie, the DESPISE George Washington, and they HATE the troops. They love gay sex. Gays sex and baby killing: there’s nothing they love more. And, more importantly, they hate YOU, Mr. and Mrs. America! They think THEY know how to spend YOUR money better than YOU do — like for HELPING people!
Everyone knows that the way to HELP people — to LIBERATE them ¬— is to bomb them, destroy their country and its infrastructure, ignite and then help to escalate a bloody civil war and then -- when after 4 years that policy proves a dismal failure -- throw more MONEY on the fire!

Glad it’s not MY money.

O.K. ... There must be a rational explanation. (Or at least something that could be explained by the "common sense" reaction of a brain-dead silver-spoon loser alcoholic elitist frat boy spoiled brat in a cowboy costume smirking troglodyte ...)

Maybe the bill just took too damn long. ... No, I seem to remember Bush saying -- even BEFORE the bill was passed: "Pass this bill, send it to my desk, I'll veto it, and then you clowns can start all over again..."

Plus, the Democratic majority actually got their bill written and passed in far less time than the Republican-led Congress before…

If I didn’t know better [in my gut] what a Good God-Fearing man George was, I’d think this was all some sorta goddam manipulative political machinations and whatnot…


Ah! I forgot! It must be because the bill is so filled with PORK! THAT’S it! You know: all that pork-barrel nonsense like funding the VA and Walter Reid Hospital and the victims of Hurricane Katrina, etc. etc. blah blah blah. Fuckin lazy con artists tryin ta blame their lack of housing and food on a “hurricane.” Sheesh. And even if it WAS a hurricane: SO WHAT?! Is that MY fault?

These Democrats in their goddamn Blue States are always trying to rip off the Federal government – to steal YOUR HARD-EARNED TAX DOLLARS! Those overpopulated Blue States are so over-represented, they make a mockery of the term “democracy”! One Man One Vote, I say! I mean, you don’t see those Red States feeding at the Federal Trough, now DO you. Hell no! Let’s get rid of this winner-take-all Electoral College system, and THEN we’ll see how Red this country is!!

Oh, wait…

What was I talking about?...

Oh, yeah: that war thing.

So just what’s in this so called “funding” bill, anyway? I mean, sure, there’s “funding” – IF you can even CALL it that. Again, it’s barely 120% of what was demanded.

But what’s the catch? …

Ah HA! THIS bill has the audacity to suggest that perpetual war might be undesirable! It even goes so far as to request that we try to SUCEED and END this war as soon as possible! Are you kidding me?

A vote for this bill sends Mixed Signals ™ -- signals such as, “We’re not sure if we have any power anymore, since we already voted to give it all away – and the guy we gave it all away to says that because we did that then now he can just do whatever he wants! And he’s the decider and we’re just ‘politicians’! WAAA!!” This bill even implies that one man – even if he is a prophet and knows and loves Jesus deeply -- does not have Sole Autonomy Over the World!

What, you think I’m making it up? No, seriously: get this: the bill calls for troops to be WITHDRAWN (if possible) by JULY! Or else, if that’s not feasible, then OCTOBER!!!

O.K., I’m exaggerating a little bit. It just says that, if possible, we should MAYBE THINK ABOUT TRYING TO BEGIN TO bring the troops home, provided that’s a viable option at that time. But, you know: I’m trying to make a point here. Cut me some slack.

And just what is that point?

Well, all you really need to know is this:

The Democrats want America to lose the war. They want the Terrorists to win. They support Al Qaeda, who supports Hezbollah. They want everybody to speak Arabic, just like those Saddam-supporting Al Qaeda-affiliated Iranians – who (incidentally) the Democrats would love to see destroy America with their stockpiles of nukes (made in Caracas, no doubt – and polished by North Korean satanists). They want babies to be killed and thrown in a garbage sack – NO, they want to place the babies in the sack while still alive and then smother them, and stomp on their heads! They hate God – no, they don’t even BELIEVE in God, so they don’t even HATE him! They do, however, hate Jesus, with a passion.

Most important of all, though (and I really CANNOT emphasize this enough): they want to RAISE YOUR TAXES.


Fortunately, you’re wise to these scoundrels. You just wait til ’08! Their slim majority is certain to be short-lived. We’re never goin back to the bad old days of “checks and balances,” “transparency,” “representation for the working class,” “oversight,” “progressive populist reforms,” OR “intelligent rational decision making”! Over my dead body. Hell, if I had MY way, we’d just suspend the stupid elections, declare Martial Law until the War On Terror ™ is over, and annoint Bush “Leader of The Realm.” … No, that doesn’t sound… “The Decider”! THAT’S what we’ll call ‘im.

I like that. “The Decider”……..

What you need is a good release. Take the Indie Blogger weekly challenge! This one's the coolest one yet. You're right about Chicken Hawk, btw. He'd kill troops just to make the dems look bad. Fucker. I hope he gets hit by a flaming gas truck driven by acid crazed gay muslim liberal pundit wearing a Clinton mask and a green armband. On Arbor day.

note to anonymous:
when calling someone an idiot, you should really clarify who you are insulting. was it me? was it my husband, who authored this post? was it someone who left a comment?

i am not removing your comment, nor am i blocking anonymous comments from my blog. HOWEVER i think my friend Andy stated it best with the following:

If you have something to say, then say it. And put your name to it. Otherwise, do the world a royal favor and shut the fuck up.
