We can be afraid... or we can vote Republican
George W. Bush comes across as authoritarian. In times of crisis, this is a good thing. After all, in times of crisis we don't have time to consider all the options, we want solutions and we want them readily available, and most importantly we don't want to be distracted by options that might weaken our resolve.

Feelings of fear and insecurity bolster existing administrations, especially if they repeat the mantra that they have everything under control.

So it is with great suspicion that I learn today, three years after the September 11th attacks, that the Department of Homeland Security is going to run it's first annual National Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid Preparedness Month. An entire month of hiding under desks and quaking in our boots, reading to sing "Duck and Cover!" at a moments notice. Where's Bert the Turtle when you need him?

I'm sorry, but I can't help but think that this is nothing but a Rovian ploy to pump up the emotions that serve the Republican electorate. It's hard to say bad things about an idea like "National Preparedness Month", but the timing is such that it makes me cynical as Hell.

Are you cynical of the timing becasue the month they chose was focused around 9/11, or because you only heard about it now instead of three weeks ago? What would have been your qualms about the timing if you had heard about it 3 weeks ago?

Its all catch 22 anyway. If the govt. does something, its all politically timed for some reason, no matter whos is in power or what year/month/day it occurs. And if govt. does nothing, its govt. be damned for not doing anything about a serious matter.

I think he, and I, are cynical not because of when we heard about it, but because they have chosen to wait *three years* to actually put it into place, and the month they put it into place just happens to be just before the November presidential elections. Why didn't they put this into place last year, or the year before? Why wasn't it good to be prepared then?

Cynical and mental

Well I am, come on! Get up and smell the roses will you? We should of started that in the beginning of 'The War' or some would proclaim it as a conflict of interest of the reason why and how come. We should have put that in effect on a 'What if factor' to begin with.

This is political stunt to gain votes. Everyone has a strategy to play baseball and knowing how many men you have on base. Who going to hit a home run for you and bring you home....Can you say DICK Chenny was batter up and its in the 9th inning and bases are loaded....Dick was up there swing it, heh batter batter and Bush is on Third..."Bring me home Dicky."

Did you see that pitch last night? Man that was beautiful it just flew in one ear and out the other.

Think about it well you?

My opinion - Bush is General Patton. He does have the head for it.

Re: Cynical and mental

"Bush has the head for it".....uhhh ok? Ill take your word for it. But in another matter does he have anything in that head of his, because so far all I have seen from bush is him echo-ing whatever his lackeys or his puppet-master(Dick)is saying, and thats besides the fact that bush is making himself out as a warmonger. In the first year or so of bush's fake presidency(screw electoral votes,anyone that wants/needs them is trying to cheat) I actually believed the guy, I backed him up every time I heard a fellow liberal put him down, it seemed like he WAS doing ok. But then things got out of hand soon thereafter and I lost all hope because he flushed it down the toilet with this crap iraq "war". And even if bush is the spitting image of patton and has the mind of patton or whatever, we dont need a general for a president, we havent in over 40 years. I thought vietnam and the first desert storm taught us that, apparently humans relish repeating its past mistakes.

Re: Cynical and mental

Gee...Um...Let me get back to you with some major facts and links. I would just tell you off from the top of my head. But Ken, if you have been reading my journal. Is telling me "No and go take a nap. Think about what you want to blast him with. Right now your memory of your Left Cortex is running low and the Phase Variance isn't collaborating with chemical photon of your nucleus at the moment, to establish a direct link to your thought processor."

So it won't be completely word salad. I will let you have my thoughts....I love you for this, with a major grin on my face. Thank You! After I take another nap...

Re: Cynical and mental

I never objected to anything you said, I just stated my current and a few past thoughts on the subject. If you still feel up to it I await a verbal thrashing.

Re: Cynical and mental

Verbal thrashing....I think it was readable thrashing. Some would say a straight fuck up the ass, with out the lubrication. Personally don't take it as straight fuck, but a funny fuck of sarcasm of pure enjoyment on my part. Why? I really need someone to fuck with. You walk right into it, in my mentally screw up way of thinking.

(shut up Ken, Butter cup made me do it. Man I wish meds start work - Having Hallucination would make anyone batty.)

Man your good, got me all wet...giggle. Ok, Ok...now I'm going to bed. If you want to play baseball and see if you can retaliate in nice home run with me. I'm game. As long we keep it readable in a way.

Warning, let not go into Vietnam, well dam um - 'Dominatrix Queen of Hell' will come out and it's not pretty.

If you want to take verbal, Sheesh pass your phone number over. sapphire_popcorn on Yahoo messenger. I'll call you and we can take it to another level of fun. Giggle.

“Use your head and common sense.”

But in another matter does he have anything in that head of his, because so far all I have seen from bush is him echo-ing whatever his lackeys or his puppet-master(Dick)is saying, and thats besides the fact that bush is making himself out as a warmonger.

I’m not for anyone, technolly and I will vote the same as I do. As the years before and before, who ever isn’t boring and keeps my attention and keep it directly to his speech. That’s who I will choose to vote. So far it’s Bush for he’s funny and very direct. Now you have to admit he’s smart by calling in Dick. ‘The Wild Card’ effect…what is that you may say? ‘Theodore Roosevelt’. Who ever is still alive or admire the man in the past in history, would trust the grand son of Theodore Roosevelt. What did Theodore Roosevelt do for this country that is in the history book or so spectacular that people of today would approve of?

Can you tell me briefly why we are at war? I hit my head on a flower pot and I forgot. My memory PC card is malfunction. LOL


In the first year or so of bush's fake presidency(screw electoral votes,anyone that wants/needs them is trying to cheat)

How did he Screw it, (dam, screwing the votes, some do have punch holes…needs a lot lube. Papers cuts aren’t pleasant.) No seriously how did he Screw it? He doesn’t have access to it?

I actually believed the guy, I backed him up every time I heard a fellow liberal put him down, it seemed like he WAS doing ok. But then things got out of hand soon thereafter and I lost all hope because he flushed it down the toilet with this crap iraq "war".

Wow, crap Iraq ‘war’. Sheesh, you haven’t seen the pictures have you? Gold stairways, light fixtures that are made out of gold, taking tame lions and shooting them for pleasure. Mass Graves of those who went against your rules. What about those beheading of those who tested your authorities. Dam he has, how many palaces in the same city and what does the rest of the people have? Why is the rest of the people look like beggars and homelessness? Why did he stash all that money in his home for?


And even if bush is the spitting image of patton and has the mind of patton or whatever, we dont need a general for a president, we havent in over 40 years. I thought vietnam and the first desert storm taught us that, apparently humans relish repeating its past mistakes.

You really think this war was a mistake? Desert Storm was just a warning and testing his – um gee…what size of a cock ring does that man need? Vietnam, well gee um…lets not go there. My father went there and well dam…I really don’t want to get ugly.

"“Use your head and common sense.”"

I seem to be lacking the aforementioned common sense, humor me and share what I would have gotten if I used some common sense?

"Now you have to admit he’s smart by calling in Dick."

The only reason dick is still in the game is because the public dont know the true level of his corruption. All dick is really good for is saying kerry is a flip-flopper,glaring at people, and astonishing the public he is still alive every time he returns from the hospital :p

Do you really believe thats why this "war" happened? Or why this war continues on long after saddamn is captured? Plain and simple, black gold. Now I was having fun rebtting all your previous antics but this serious. I betcha didnt know dick cheynee(I think thats how its spelled) owns stock in the only oil company allowed in iraq right now. Quite amusing that is. Or it couldent be that sonny boy(bush jr) is giving payback for the attempt on his daddys life by saddamn. And true we did do good by getting rid of saddamn but thats the only good, and who are we to invade sovereign countrys just to take out one leader?

No I dont think this war was a "mistake", Bush and Dick planned on it from day one and it happened better than planned. I think it was WRONG that it happened and that its a huge MISTAKE we are still in iraq. And about vietnam, I never planned on going there, to much wetworks involved with talks about vietnam.

And that about finishes it. Sorry my response was much less funny than yours but im just in a bad mood today.(nothing to do with this) I await a hopefully more humorus response than mine.

Common Senses on the gaming tragedy of this war and pre-game set off ‘Take a Looky with some Nooky’ Figure-ly speaking starting with Dessert Storm.

One, we have establish that the Dessert Storm was just to size up his dick for a cock ring, Right. Although we couldn’t find the right size, so we have to use the bolt cutter cock ring with razor sharp teeth to cut off his DICK Tatorship upon those people that was living with out the freedom to chose and be able to have the right to be in control of their own free will.

Re: Cynical and mental part 2

Do you really believe thats why this "war" happened? Or why this war continues on long after saddamn is captured? Plain and simple, black gold.

Black Gold, not technolly, but more in business economics uprising in away but this was coming, by hello – the pre-game tragedy. This did start with Terror of September 11. by OB-Lan Tampon that is stuck hiding in some hole dark and gloomy and possibly smelly as pussy without a proper dushing once a month. This war on terror isn’t over until we get his smelly pussy of an piss-ant.

Saddam he had a choice, he failed to accommodate and went against the peace treaty to disarmed Nuks. If he didn’t want his ass rip and chewed my our soldiers. He would just open the doors, say, “Go head Bush Baby I’m clean and smell like April Camel Fresh as I can be.” Approve the Bush was in over his head being paranoid. NO – that didn’t happen, if fact Saddam wanted this war for the fact the pre-game we had with him, we pulled out. That made him think that American couldn’t hang and figure that WE were weak. We surprise Saddam and slice off is DICK-tatorship with the only mean of necessary force of sliding on a Cock ring with nicely finely sharpen teeth.


Now I was having fun rebtting all your previous antics but this serious. I betcha didnt know dick cheynee(I think thats how its spelled) owns stock in the only oil company allowed in iraq right now. Quite amusing that is. Or it couldent be that sonny boy(bush jr) is giving payback for the attempt on his daddys life by saddamn. And true we did do good by getting rid of saddamn but thats the only good, and who are we to invade sovereign countrys just to take out one leader?

Who’s to say, I or the company I work for don’t, who cares. Its dog eat bitch of world. Eden and Olympia is what you make of it, now in your own life. There are rules and Saddam wasn’t playing fairly with his own people. What are you going to do sit around with your thumb up your ass pulling out plums or prune juices of an incorrect diet your on. This war isn’t about the attempt on Bush’s daddy, this war is about all those innocent live in those twin towers and about all those in Iraq not having the right to tell their own Dick-tator of an Ass off without being torture or killed. We in American have the right to Vote and, like you are able to disagree with president with out fear of being killed. Those people in Iraq didn’t, fuck did have fuckin M.T.V. or to view the outside of their own country.

No I dont think this war was a "mistake", Bush and Dick planned on it from day one and it happened better than planned. I think it was WRONG that it happened and that its a huge

No, I don’t think they can see the future that Ob Lan Tampon Camel smelling or Saddam Dick-tator in terrorizing America or Their own people. Let me know if Dick and Bush start carrying a Crystal Ball- reading Palms – Runes – Tarot – Oghams – Tee Leaves or become physic. This wasn’t planned, those people in Twin Towers didn’t know they were going to died or knowingly exactly what Saddam was trying to be ‘A David Cooper Field’ and trying to pull illusion over our heads.

I’m sorry if my antic are a little morbid, I just got done watching ‘Little shop of Horrors’. You want play again Se'more?

Re: Cynical and mental part 2

ooof, good show. But every time you mentioned (/11 and the Iraq war/saddamn in relation to each other its like a slap in the face. I live in new york, ok those where my towers along with everyone else. Saddamn has NOTHING(get it, nothing) to do with 9/11 in any way.

On another note, you say we invaded iraq for "the people" of iraq. sure thats an "ok" reason IF we had used it. We just kept spouting propaganda for the war about WMD's(weapons of mass destruction). I remember no mentioning of the people of iraq before this war started besides they would be dancing in the streets and throwing flowers at our troops.

And again, bush/dick DID plan this war from the first day he entered the office. His top cabinet members that left(yes many left) told the AP and anyone else that would listen bush planned the war from day one. The only way the iraq war is related to 9/11 is because bush abused our belief in him and fear of terrorists and said saddamn was partially responsible. Then they tried and link Iraq with the terrorists, that failed to.

To add, saddamn DID open up and let the UN check what they wanted to. MAYBE he had a few things hiding, we will never know now. But how about this, imagine if the UN decided to start doing invasive checks of the united states, imagine the fury we would unleash because of this disrespect, I imagine saddamn felt that way to.

And for the finish, seymour(i think thats proper way, maybe not) lovesss to play :p

As she appears from the darkness naked
from her bedroom to her bathroom. She didn’t realize he was there.

His eyes slowly start to wonder
to a place that he shouldn’t.
His mouth start to water.
only the middle man of a brain start to stiffin.
Screams
Oh it’s just you, Dominc now think about it, this whole equation on terror sweetie.

1) I agree, Saddam has nothing to do with The Towers.
Saddam + Ob lad camel smelling pussy that for got to dush for this month. = Dictator = War ON Terror.

Now don’t start with me, Saddam did terrorize his own people and wasn’t playing fairly, even thou, the intent in going in there wasn’t technolly for his people. It was mostly for the peace treaty that he was violated, thus causing fear upon us and the world if he does or doesn’t have NUKs.

Then we found out by our hound dogs that he was also terrorizing his own people. There for he became just as bad, as OB Lad camel smelling pussy Dick Jerking Son some rat infested with Rabies.

Here’s your slap in the face, Sept 11 + Iraq War = Terror (Saddam + OBin ) = Dictator . To reduce this equation to simplest prime number. Primary Colors + American Soldiers = Slice and Dice (Cock ring with Razor Sharp edges) = Castration but actually. Saddam + OBin = Full size DICK. So we only have ½ castrations of slice and dicing the war on terror.

Now get out of my bathroom, we well finish this conversation and the rest of your come back, when I come back with some more creative impulses.

Re: Gosh, don't you ever Knock or use the door.

I have NOTHING against the fight against Bin-laden or his crappy terror group, but iraq "had" nothing to do with it.

Ok now onto the subject of justifying the war in iraq. Yes saddamn was a bastard to his people, he tortured/killed and worse to many of them. He WAS a dictator and he loved his power. Now that does NOT justify invading the country under the FALSE pre-tense of WMD's. We knew he dident have them then and we know he doesent now. The UN was activly searching all over iraq for ANY sign of any type of WMD or anything that violated treaties. And for him violating other treaties, he was already being sanctioned by the UN on his oil exports and many other things.

If the US had decided on sending in an elite squad to off the guy and his family I would have turned my back and not said a word. But nooo we invade his freaking country and spurr on the hatred for the US by ALL arab nations. And the only benifit of this is the oil fatcats pocket money. so far results are that the iraqi people are being tortured in another name, al-quaida is rampant through the country, american troops and iraqi civilians are dropping like flies and everyone is on edge.

But now that bush has decided to invade iraq, al-quaida numbers have swelled and they are waging a renewed holy war against the US and ANYONE who backs them. Now I could continue this with some good old fashioned speculation but Ill leave that for later.

Enjoy :-)

.**<<<<

Oh my, did you see that ….Tommy, my dog just piss on the Bush’s daddy and he’s not doing any but just standing there. Like the pre-game of ‘Dessert Storm’ that technolly lasted only for 24 hours for Bush’s daddy, “Oh my goodness, were killing some many people.” No shit were at war you little shrub. Our Military top commander wanted to press on and take care of what needed to. Saddam invade Kuwait stole everything including the kitchen sink and murder the people. Bush’s daddy, technolly was weak and said, well this isn’t really our fight, even though they ask us to help, we did what I think we should do. Lets him go as our military and CIA intelligent is saying what the Fuck you fuckin pussy. He fuckin dessert fruit cake (as in Pere, but some sort of exotic desert fruit) decides to let Saddam stay in power, out of fear that Iran would march on Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Changing the subject to the other dick head and the connection in Dessert Storm and he slightly in connection in this Iraq War on Terror..

Obin Lad was planning this alot longer before Bush’s son became President. After we win or push back Saddam. Then we pulled out with in 24 hours, Taliban takes power because they approve of the Big Pipeline Project, Sheik Omar welcome OBin Lad and his army as honor guest in Afghanistan. Then Bush’s daddy decides to keep its troops in Saudi Arabia, the Moslem Holy Land, he declares war on the United States from a cave in Afghanistan. (Oh well, whatever. Bush daddy said, ignoring the tampon)

Few years later…as Obin Lad is cranking and screwing around with his smelling tampon cotton head of his.

Asleep at the switch, the CIA and FBI, at constant war with each other over bureaucratic turf (I got that from T.v. Show - SNL), allow the worse to happen, 9/11. Baby Bush declares war back. The Taliban are toast. He argues for a preemptive strike against Iraq, to finish what his pussy ass of father didn’t do in "Dessert Storm." A pre-game, Obin Lad camel smelling pussy tampon had been making threats since Dessert Storm.

That’s the Connection, if you can clearly see through my word salad. But Saddam has nothing to do with Towers; But Obin lad was part of the Pre-game kick off.

USA Urban Streets…feel me on this. How many gangs are in NY? In California we had ESide rolling 30’s – Skyline Crips – Logan Heights Posers. Mission bay beach stoners not exactly their names. But they each had a leader, Arabs have leaders….Obin Lad may have not been working with Saddam, his son most differently. Hello – even in third world country they have gangs, but these are call brain wash religious fighters, that would only listen to a priest.

Then again, does your father knows everything you do, do you really think Saddam would believe any we had to tell on his son. His son can deny everything; no daddy I wasn’t part of the 9/11. That what I believe and have pondering in my mind. Would you like to make your daddy proud if you took over US, by funding some ganster to do your work for you.

Next paragraph after dinner or next morning. I have take naps if you notice my eyes are dilated constantly from this head injury.
