Bush Bashing 101


Kerry - Edwards

in 2004

Does it really matter? Vote

Bush - Cheney

in 2004

I just thought I might point something out to some people who may think that I'm pro-Kerry because they think I'm bashing Bush.  To me, it honestly makes no sense to vote for the "lesser of two evils", or for the idiot son of a billionaire power family like the Bushes, or for a politician who married into another billionaire family.  See, if you vote for the lesser of two evils, you still get evil.

Look, for all you staunch hereditary Republicans, I'm truly sorry George W. Bush isn't acting like a Republican.  Republicans are supposed to be for less government.  Bush's government is probably one of the largest in history and its burden on tax payers is growing larger by the second.  Dubya certainly hasn't remembered what the Reagans taught us about less government.  I hope you saved your $300 Dubya-bucks Fun Park certificate for the ride he'll take you on during his second term.

For you Born-Again-Christians who are going to vote for Dubya because you're so tickled to get 'a man of faith' in the presidency, get over it.  The RNC is going to promise you some things about morality, family values, yadda-yadda ... things the government should not be in the business of doing.  Your 'values' are your values.  The government can't mandate them.  This is still the United States, not Iran, so move there if you want to live in a theocracy.  Church-State seperation not only protects non-christian citizens from discrimination, but also protects you.  If the government mandated christianity tomorrow morning, what are the odds that it would be your brand of christianity?  Look, if you want your kids to pray in school, send them to Bible Camp, or enroll them in your church's madrassa.   The seperation of church and state is there for a good friggin' reason.

As far as the Kerry - Edwards ticket goes?  There's another Fun-Park ride.  Sheesh!  I feel like there should be a little plywood cut-out in front of the voting booth with an arm sticking straight out and a caption reading, "You have to be this gullible to vote for me!".  Kerry has been a professional politician for decades -- and just how in touch with the common man do you think he really is?  He's married to a friggin' heiress and doesn't even know how many SUVs he owns.  Edwards?  At least he's a fresh face.  It's likely Kerry picked Edwards as a running mate because of his good show at the Bilderberg conference in Italy, last month.  Edwards may actually be more connected to the world's power elite than Kerry himself -- or at least he makes a good poster boy for them.  At the same time, he comes across as concerned for my well-being as the successful ambulance chaser that he was for most of his professional career.  Call me now! 1-800-suckers.

Why haven't I been bashing Kerry as much as I seem to complain about Dubya?  Dubya and his cronies have had four years to prove to me that they are truly pathetic, and devious, and pompous, and short-sighted, and outright thieves.  If I haven't bashed Kerry, I think it's mainly because I don't know enough about John Kerry to intelligently bash him beyond what I see most Dubya-defenders do -- parroting some FOX news political pundit, or Hannity, or O'Reilly, or Limbaugh. 

While they are all professional critics and complainers
, they take themselves way too seriously and that's just not my style.  If I think of something witty that I can use to bash Kerry - Edwards, believe me, you're likely to see it here first.

TAG board archive

Everyone!  Into the pool!!
So ... why?  Well, I go through the TAG board periodically (or when asked) and delete entries.  Mainly I delete/clear entries because it reloads the page periodically or when you add a new entry for chatting and when it gets too large, it takes up bandwidth loading constantly.  My general rule was this: if you put an annoying little smilie emoticon on the TAG, that entry was the first to go when I cleaned house.

The second rule: if the entry was older.  But the second rule bummed me out because I hate to throw away memories, so, some entries were deemed to be classics and had to be preserved (like Hygelic reading my blog in the bathroom on his cell phone).

Then the first and second rules unfortunately clashed when it came to old school phreeks who might put an ascii emoticon at the end of their sentence, like Skennedy (et al).  These people were violating my first unstated rule through no fault of their own, and, because the programmers of the TAG board must have thought to themselves, "how handy-fucking-dandy would it be if we just translated every ascii emoticon to a different happy little yellow face?"  So, they dropped another few hits of Exstacy, patted each other on the back and went back to coding the TAG board.

So, whether it is a good thing or a bad thing, whether it is wise or terribly, terribly wrong -- I've decided to archive the TAG board here for all to see -- and still be able to delete older entries (and keep the TAG.html small) with a clear conscience.

Gray Spaces - Soldier's Sunset

I didn't think this would look that good on a shirt, so I made a print (poster) instead.  Should I put this on a shirt, too?  I don't know.  You tell me.

In Miami - Making a federal case of being stupid drunks

In Miami today, a federal grand jury indicted two former America West pilots for operating a passenger jet airplane while intoxicated. Just hours before the 2002 incident, pilots Cloyd and Hughes were actually videotaped partying in a Coconut Grove district bar, Mister Moe's, until 4:30am when credit card receipts showed that their $142 bar tab was paid.  Later that morning, security at Miami International Airport alerted officials that they smelled alcohol on the two pilots and their flight was turned back to the gate before its 10:30am scheduled departure to Phoenix with 124 passengers.  Both were still legally drunk later that afternoon when police gave them breathalyzer tests.

I seem to remember Jay Leno making fun of these two idiots for weeks.

It's as easy as 3-4-5, Jeb!
In Orlando - Jeb Bush has a Dan Quayle moment

Jeb Bush, Dubya's little brother and governor of Florida, has the math skills of a Republican.  The self-described education governor who weaseled a tax-funded private school voucher plan into Florida schools under the FCAT testing system scheme was asked an impromptu FCAT question by a student during a photo op at a local high school.  Florida students must pass the FCAT test to graduate high school.  Jeb Bush stammered and then mumbled the wrong answer.

The intrepid student, Luana Marques, said she thought to ask the governor the FCAT question as a kind of a joke because she figured since he's the one calling for the use of the controversial FCAT testing, he should be able to pass it.  After listening to Jeb Bush launch into a lengthy defense of his FCAT system after he got it wrong, Marques commented, "I think I offended him.  I don't think he had much a sense of humor."

Like, DUH, Luana.  He's a Bush.  They're never wrong.

In Milwaukee - God's mysteries and ignorant fools.

Ray Hemphill, 47, who prayed and sang over 8-year-old Terrance Cottrell's chest as parishioners held him down on Aug. 22, 2003, stands trial for felony physical child abuse.

Terrance, who was diagnosed with autism at age 2, hated to be touched and was often unable to express his needs, according to previous testimony. Terrance died after receiving the 12th in a series of prayer services from Ray Hemphill.

The boy's mother, Patricia Cooper, and two other female parishioners told investigators that they made the child lay on his back on the floor of the strip-mall based church. They then helped to restrain him while the defendant laid perpendicular across Terrance's chest for almost two hours, praying and whispering aspersions at the devil into the boy's ear.

David Hemphill, 63, was not in attendance that evening, but he told jurors he gave his brother permission to perform the exorcisms as an attempt to save the boy from what they believed was demonic possession.

Pastor David Hemphill testified Thursday that his brother has the ability to cast out devils and says God claimed the autistic boy's life, not his brother, Ray.  If convicted, Ray faces up to five years in prison.

Personally, I think that prison time is the wrong punishment.  The entire strip-mall parish should all be neutered, lobotomized or euthanized.  Or, maybe it is just God's will that someone should pummel these friggin' idiots' brains in like baby fur seals.
