tribute (Ken said tongue-in-cheek) to
our Prezident, George W. "Dubya" Bush
Remember how they showed a
counter every night while US
hostages were being held in Iran? Here's the chart I'd like to see on
the nightly news these days. (HTML and chart shamelessly stolen from http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~stephan/USfatalities.html)
The blue text on the chart and the events indicated by
dots on the line are hyperlinked - just click them.
Note: WWII refers to US
participation, 8 Dec 41 - 15 Aug 45.
Do you think these are just
Think again. They are real people.

for the information Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld don't want you to know
about our casualties. The
troops come home one last
time, their "Mission Accomplished",
and George W. Bush hasn't attended ONE
of their funerals. Rest in peace knowing you gave your lives for oil
and Halliburton's balance sheet.
To paraphrase our late unlamented
leader, Ronald Reagan, "It's mourning in America again."
For information on the photographer who snapped the coffin picture
above, click here
and read how in the land of free speech, she lost her job for
publicizing that picture. Rest in peace, First Amendment....
Also see the gallery of similar pictures here.
It's a sobering group of photographs.
you're interested in viewing the very moving and emotional 2004-Apr-30
"Nightline" show on ABC (some stations didn't air it due to corporate
censorship) which has photographs and names read by Ted Koppel of all
American deaths there, go here
and click "Dead".
The mp3 files are audio only of the reading of the names, the wmv files
are video. The small video
file ("Coffins") is a different Koppel piece about not showing
returning coffins of
Iraqi dead by order of Bush I but does show a flag-draped stretcher
borne by fellow firemen in the World Trade Center ruins--followed by
the magic words: "I'm George W. Bush and I approve this message." Why
can't most people see the inherent hypocricy in that? Too many
unanswered questions for me but the right people aren't
"Why should we
about body bags and deaths," Barbara Bush said on ABC's "Good Morning
America" on March 18, 2003. "Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why
should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?" (click here)
You can at the above site select just your state, or selected counties
or cities within that state. It brings it home to me to see what my
state or a nearby community has spent. For instance, Battle Creek,
Michigan is one of the closest cities to me which is shown, and the
cost there is enough to build several hundred homes for those who need
them worst, or provide medical care to thousands of people. George W.
Bush has conveniently forgotten the verse in Matthew 25:40 which says:
"Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." By
denying housing or medical care to those who really need it, he has
denied it to Jesus himself. See this blog
post for a related thought on this verse. OK, the Sunday morning
sermon is over, you may now go back to browsing my Bush tribute page!
"As people do better,
they start voting like Republicans...
...unless they have too much education and vote Democratic,
which proves there can be too much of a good thing."

OK, some of these are dated, but it's the thought that counts, right? :)
Did you ever wonder "what
about Bushco and The Wizard of Oz?
I first registered to vote
1971, and in 1972 I joined the club with the card shown below. George
McGovern was running against Richard Nixon, whom I despised at a
politician, and I spent almost half my weekly salary to send the
campaign $25. The theory was that if one million people each sent $25,
Senator McGovern would have a war chest about as large as Nixon's and
could contest the election. History proved him wrong on that, but
history proved Nixon more wrong on bigger things. Ah, the wonderful
memories of John Dean and Sam Ervin and the Watergate hearings!
I still have the lapel pin also, and I have seen the
pin/card package for sale on the web for $25. Not counting the value of
inflated money since then, I could sell them for what I paid for them.
But I won't!
I was the first registered voter in my
county in the 18-20 year old class after the 26th Constitutional
Amendment allowing my age group to vote. I was issued card number 1-NE.
The "NE" stood for "national elections" since the state interpreted
that amendment as applying to federal elections only. That was later
changed. I wish I still had that card, but had to turn it in when I
turned 21 to get my "regular" card issued to me. It would have made a
souvenir almost as nice as my treasured MMM card. For an amusing audio take on
religion and politics, click here.

Hail to the Thief!
Love your country. Never trust its government.
to read a well-documented story about Prescott Bush (above with Hitler)
and his dealings with the Nazis. It will make you think twice about the
entire Bush dynasty.

The audio you heard if your browser if sound-enabled is a clip from Papoon
for President by The
Firesign Theatre. I make no claim that George W. "Dubya" Bush is
"not insane" but George Papoon certainly wasn't! As the nominee of the National Surrealists Party, he resembles
the Eveready bunny in that he just keeps on runnin' :)
