When I was young I used to love a show called Ma & Pa Kettle, some of you may remember it. Today I was listening to our illustrious leader GW trying to once again tell us that his plan is in our best interest.
Bush stated that we are fighting terrorism around the world. we are securing our borders and stopping terrorists where they stand. That Homeland Security is effective. He claims everything he has claimed since the onslaught of all this. He does so in an unwavering and desperate struggle to try to explain his ineptness. Meanwhile Americans are catching their foot on nails that are peeking up from the floor because of shoddy workmanship.
My question is this, how do you claim all this when the initial job in Afghanistan is not completed? How do you claim success when you have half-finished work everywhere. He claims Afghanistan is better, yet we cannot destroy the poppy fields there, they are in fact growing more poppy and we are still losing life.
Bush is Pa Kettle, he starts a project and moves on before the first is completed, leaving his tools all over the place, and then can’t remember where he left off. If he worked for me I would fire him; he is unfocused, a sloppy worker and does not know how to pull a proper permit. Instead he just works at his own pace, doing a half-ass job and leaving leaky holes and unfinished destruction everywhere.
I’ll fix that porch tomorrow, Ma. Sure you will Pa. In the meantime, Venezuela better watch their ass, because once again Bush is back to the “if you harbor terrorists you are a terrorist” language. It is just a matter of time before we drag our men and women to South America to bolster our future trading partner and keep it safe for our economic future. Even our so-called Christian leaders are weighing in asking for assassination attempts, what would Jesus do? Did I mention Venezuela has a lot of oil?
Our borders are a sieve, with really no apparent control that is worthwhile at all; the border states are calling for a state of emergency. Afghanistan is under some control, yet we still did not finish getting the very man who started all this, probably because Bush claims he is just a symbolic figure now, right. Our airports are run by the same people that did security before 9/11 and TSA, very unqualified, mostly high school graduates. Do you really feel safer? We still are missing thousands of possible Al Qaeda loose in the States they can not find.
I think we need to go back to the beginning and use a real world work ethic , finish the first job then move on. Do not leave half-finished work and move on. Worse GW moves on in a poorly orchestrated and undermanned manner that has actually undermined our security. I do not think we should withdraw from Iraq; Bush is correct on this one. He has us in so deep that to leave now would be a disaster.
We are witnessing the beginning of World War 3. We are in this for decades now. Why? because like a Pa Kettle he did not finish the first job and dragged his feet to prolong the Iraq war to pull off a planned act of Psycho socio-economics. What the hell is that you ask? Simple: that is when you purposely create an environment to change the economics of a region by manipulating the price of commodities. In this case Bush, his allies the Saudis, and his cronies the oil barons have used their influence to raise gas prices to benefit each other. At the same time they talked down our economy from day one to create the illusion that there was a problem with it. Again, Why you ask? Simple: the American dollar was too high for a world-based economy, it had to be brought to a more even pace with the Euro to benefit WORLD trade.
Unfortunately at the same time Bush’s decisions are going to have a crippling effect on the auto industry and America as a whole as they scurry now to get rid of gas-guzzling inventory. That’s right, Bush eliminated the need for higher gas mileage in vehicles and took away the restraints that kept gas guzzlers out of the American market. So under this admin we have witnessed 300, 400 and 500 horsepower vehicles, the resurgence of hemi engines etc. burdening the American public even more. All this at a time when urgent restraint should of prevailed. As a result the oil companies are making a killing – pun intended, and we are embroiled in a war to secure the Saudis’ interest as well as ours.
Yes Bush is resolute, so was Pa Kettle; every day he told Ma , I am going to fix that porch Ma, and every day the same thing, a lot of talk and no results. Bush’s resolve is his own undoing, and even today he stated as long as he is president he will stay on his course of action. So like Pa Kettle we will have to sit here day after day , month after month seeing how resolute Bush is while the porch remains tilted off balance , squeaking and in disrepair. One billion dollars a week and a cost in the trillions for all this and Congress has no ambition to have a hearing on where the money goes. Billions of dollars falling in the cracks of the porch as we are led by a resolute crackpot. George W Pa Kettle.
My suggestion, finish the damn original job before you move on to create more chaos. Venezuela, the writing is on the wall, Bush tried to help with a coup in your country , now he is using the old, “if you support terror you are a terrorist” jargon. Which by the way apparently does not refer to Cheney dealing with Iran illegally in the past for Halliburton. Bush should not have tools, especially POWER tools, until he has finished an apprenticeship. He is basically an unskilled, unpermitted worker with limited skills. Even if the porch were fixed it would not be in a stable condition.
We are caught in a quagmire all right, it is a quagmire of Bush’s own sense of self-grandeur, which was never based in any reality. We let it happen by placing an irresponsible capitalist in charge and handed him the tools. Just like an apprentice worker he was so eager to use those power tools that he forgot to measure anything, and all we are left with is pieces of perfectly good materials left strewn across the yard, creating a chaotic mess. Now we are left with nothing to show that is truly useful. Yet he stands there ever so proud like a four-year-old , holding up a ruined piece of porch and in his childlike glee says look how nice that saw cuts.
I’ll fix that war tomorrow Ma! O.K. George, meanwhile stay out of the moonshine; it’s damaged your brain.
