Shocking Myself on Good Friday
Nobody’s Opinion: It's hard to write about politics tonight when it's always the same old, same old. The Democrats always attacking the President…today it was Rumsfield. They've already got rid of Delay, who was not even protected by his own party. He was outraged about Dubai, as was any sane person. That did not go over I’m sure with President Bush.
Remember, the President was for the Dubai deal, much to everyone’s shock. He is also supporting giving amnesty to the illegal immigrants, much to everyone’s shock. He called the brave men and women who went to the border, the minutemen…vigilantes, much to everyone’s shock. He closed many of our sacred military bases, leaving the American people feeling very vulnerable, much to everyone’s shock. He says Bill Clinton has become a good friend to him, and a best friend to his dad, much to everyone’s’ shock.
He has scolded the American People for being addicted to oil, as if we were greedy little children, much to everyone’s shock. This is much like telling a wife that is being beaten by her husband that she deserved it. Same logic. It’s our fault we are addicted.
Guess that’s the new strategy. Blame the victim.
He has not vetoed one single pork bill, much to everyone’s shock. He has said nothing about the camera’s going up on every corner, much to everyone’s shock. He has said that immigrants are doing jobs that no one else will do, which is much like calling us a big, lazy, nation. It was the big, lazy people of this nation that came to the rescue of the Katrina victims, which was a shock to no one.
He gave the Medal of Freedom to Muhammad Ali, much to everyone’s shock. He and his father gave the most endearing speeches ever given to a dishonorable man at Bill Clinton’s Library opening much to everyone shock. After he captured Saddam and killed his sons, he seemed to just let the whole war in Iraq take its own course, much to everyone’s shock. He let China buy our ports in the Bahamas, much to everyone’s shock. When he saw how incompetent the Democrats were at helping those poor people in New Orleans after Katrina, he should have jumped in with bravado to save lives...but he didn’t, much to everyone’s shock.
He did nothing while Terry Shaivo starved to death, much to everyone’s shock and total shame.
He said nothing when the Supreme Court took away our constitutional right to eminent domain, which was almost unbelievable.
And the most shocking thing of all is that he has let the Democrats crucify him unmercifully, destroying him, and embarrassing him to the world. Ridiculing him on every turn---calling him a liar, a traitor, a murderer, and yet not a whisper from him. At his press conferences, unlike Clinton, who never took a tough question in his whole career, Bush takes one bashing question after another.
Twice he stuck up for himself…we all went WHAT? Hey! He’s back!
But he was only back for two days, and then he went back into submission.
When he was at Dr. King’s funeral, and one nasty Democrat after another made the most vicious comments degrading the whole event…he said nothing. He should have at least reprimanded the scumbags for doing this at Dr. King’s funeral. It was disrespectful of Dr. King, not just the President. But by now, we weren’t shocked, we were getting used to it.
Obviously, Bush is trying to emulate Jesus. Maybe he thinks it will get him reincarnated. Maybe he thinks if he emulates Jesus, and suffers all the abuse just like Jesus did he will be reincarnated and join the father in heaven. Thereby also getting glory in history.
What he forgets is that by turning the other check all the time he sacrifices us, the American people. Unlike Jesus, he is not saving us, he is hurting us with every silent action. Even Jesus stood up to the money lenders. Yes, we thought we were getting a different man.
One of the reasons I liked President Bush was because he wears his emotions on his sleeves. He actually had big tears in his eyes when he was being sworn in as President. Unlike Clinton, what you see is what you get. It’s obvious he cares deeply about people. He has always been Christ like in his tolerance for the world abuse. He has been extremely kind to people when he can get one on one. Once again, you don’t hear about this because he doesn’t blow his own horn.
Clinton used his dog for a photo-op. Poor Buddy. Bush truly loves his dog, he has trouble putting him down.
He is trying to be all things and tolerate all people.
He can see the evil in Iraq, Iran, and North Korea, but not the evil in his own country.
Obviously the merger with Mexico is not good for this country. He has no intention to stop it. If the reasons are that we need to merge because we need more people for the future war against China, or Iran, or whoever, then tell us.
If we need more people because America needs to compete against the globalizations of the rest of the world, then tell us.
Is Bush sacrificing the downing of American in the short run to save it in the long run?
Then, tell us.
Or do we need this merger simply because our big businesses like the big profits.
Just tell us. Instead of putting out these figures of all is well, go ahead, admit to the truth. It’s doing well for some, but worse for others. Tell us the truth, a service economy will not be able to compete with the rest of the world. Tell us we will no longer be the big dog on the block. Clinton has told us.
You just don’t want to tell us why…is that it?
All in all, we all wish that President Bush would do what God would want him to do. And that is to do the right thing. Fight the evil in this country.
Jesus has his place in the universe. No mortal man can be Jesus.
No, President Bush, instead of trying to emulate Jesus, should emulate George Washington, or Ronald Reagan.
Jesus didn’t expect us to be him, anymore that we can be God.
There must be a good man still in there …it soon will be Easter…can he be resurrected?
Come back to us George, we need a warrior…what good are we fighting overseas if we are being conquered from within?
It’s not too late…Jesus, we are told gave his life for the world.
Soldiers do this everyday. We should expect no less from a President.
Nobody’s Perfect; Hey, I’ll take this one tonight. I bought a whole pack of 98% fat-free devil food cakes, but I didn’t eat just one. There is now only three left out of nine. That’s why no one loses weight on the diet food. You tell yourself you can eat twice as much. The human mind is capable of this kind of great logic. I KNOW you have done this too. Admit it.
Nobody Knows: Who is going to get this nut in Iran first? I suggest we start broadcasting American Idol into the country. That will confuse them. Maybe Barbra Streisand could go over and give him a free concert. She might like it so much, she would stay. She could give her home in California to an illegal immigrant and redeem herself.
Well, have a happy Easter weekend everybody, see you on Monday.
