Bush, Our Almighty Protector


While sleeping at our posts and ignoring the terrorist alert colors, we had daddy Bush on our side watching for us all. It's not enough that these unlawful evesdropping measures were used to monitor American citizens, but Bush said today in his White House address that he would not hesitate to continue to authorize this practice. This has been enough evidence to halt the Senate from pushing to renew the Patriot Act, though it was passed with a 98-1 vote when first introduced. According to Bush, he had no other choice due to his responsibility to protect the American people. If we were not already so apathetic about eating the bullshit that comes from this administration, I believe there would be riots on the White House lawn. At what point do we allow an incompetent leader to reshape our personal liberties guaranteed in our founding documents? And where are the authorities who check and balance these raving executive orders? Sounds like this Jesus-as-co-pilot plan may have a few cracks in it.

Stingray, I have wondered for five f*cking long years why we weren't rioting in the streets. Every new transgression seems more insane than the last.

Obviously, there are a lot of damn fat-n-happy idiots in this country, and it'll take actual rioting (a la Paris) in the suburbs, disrupting deliveries to Piggly Wiggly, to wake their somnolent asses. Nero fiddled, the people diddled, and so it is in Murka. Rome burning, who knew? goes the refrain. Idiots. I blame the media, the Republocrats, and the patriarchy, and not necessarily in that order.

On a lighter note, welcome to the blogosphere!

Why AREN'T there massive riots? It's a puzzle, for sure. I'm so pissed I can't even see right.

So Clinton gets labeled a bad guy for getting a blowjob and Bush gets a free pass for endorsing torture, helping the fundies prevent our gay/lesbian brothers and sisters from marrying, and telling everyone he doesn't have to obey the Constitution with regard to wire-tapping.

I gotta go puke now.
