Villain of the Month
George W. Bush
Unlike the majority of previous US presidents, Bush is not a master politician. What he is, apart from his obvious low IQ, is a master villain. A charge, mind you, that is not made without clear, irrefutable evident to support it.
If one looks closely, through the carefully choreographed persona, the careful, and absolutely necessary scripting, it becomes obvious that this very simple man, this ne'er do well, without question, is, tragically, unscrupulous.
To begin with, as it was with Lyndon Johnson and his Big Oil pals who had successfully heisted the 1948 Senate election, now known as the Box 13 scandal, it is a matter of record that Bush and his miscreant army swindled the 2000 election.
That aside, there is that so-called tax cut. This insidious villain, had the gall to look directly into the eyes of Mr. and Mrs. Average American and promise them a tax break, an insultingly simple-minded ploy to buy their vote. This he did knowing full well that the lion share of the tax break would go to large corporate associates of his, like Big Oil. The average individual got slightly more than $300.
And where was all this cash to come from? It came, shamefully, from the surplus that had been built up over the previous eight years.
Then, adding insult to injury, the villainous-corporate-puppet sought to pass legislation that would dramatically change the over-time-pay rules for the very people he pledged tax relief to. Thus, essentially, nullifying any and all promised tax relief.
Now, when this villain assumed office, the deficit was at an all-time low. In addition, there was a huge surplus. Five years later, the deficit is massive and out of control, and the surplus is a thing of the past.
In addition, oil prices have skyrocketed, despite the fact that Bush and his reprobates have waged war in Iraq to gain access to more oil.
Many of his key supporters and friends have revealed themselves equally villainous, as they have drained pension accounts and bankrupted US conglomerates, without a single one of this group of malefactors yet imprisoned.
Next, came September 11th. After bumbling any and all opportunities to apply key intelligence about possible pending strikes against the US before that fateful day, Mr. Bush used events of that day to sway a dupable public into supporting a war on Iraq. Despite evidence that Iraq did not attack the US, Bush and his greedy thugs manipulated events to justify war with Iraq. Not for the sake of Americans, but, in truth, for the sake of oil.
The plan, to deliberately mislead the public with fabricated evidence and false claims of weapons of mass destruction, as well as implying a clear link between al-Quida and Iraq, so that the American taxpayer would happily foot the bill for war, which would pave the way for Bush-friendly oil companies to grow richer by fetching more oil, is an unbelievably heinous affront perpetrated upon American society, not to forget, also highly unpatriotic.
Other unpatriotic acts of Bush's are the Patriot Act, which completely disregards the Bill of Rights, and Faith-Based governmental departments. Despite knowing the notion of such ideas and departments are unconstitutional, Mr. Bush insisted upon them nevertheless. The latter, one must observe, is also an illegal act.
Bush & Company also profess to desire to spread democracy across the globe. Yet, this Commander-in-Thief will not allow an ally to voice their opinion on global matters, like war with Iraq.
Sadly, this beast looks at a forest and sees dollars signs, not its beauty. Sadly, this thug looks at treasures, like the protected natural lands of Alaska, and envisions towering oil wells. Sadly, this short-sighted malefactor swims in the dream of more oil and more nuclear power plants, instead of hybrid cars, bio-diesel fuel and solar panels. A lack of vision which wears upon the American reputation like a bad coffee stain.
Even more saddening, this reprobate doesn't read. If he did exercise the muscle between his ears in that manner, he'd see the striking parallel between his administration and Orwel's Animal Farm.
If he had taken the time to hit the books, he might have known his history instead of repeating episodes those of us who know our history have witnessed before.
