Congress this morning gave the lyingest, most wrongest, dumbest, most careless, most undiplomatic, most humorless (except for fart jokes), most self-centered (and most of them have been highly self-centered, but not like this one), most incompetent, most dangerous never elected president we have ever had--and that includes Warren G. Harding, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, Calvin Cooledge, Hoobert Heever, Richard M. Nixon, Dwight David Eisenhower, Lyndon B for Bullshit Johnson, GOD: William Howard Taft--he weighed over 400 lbs; Zachary Taylor; Andy Jackson, Millard Fillmore, Gerald Ford (actually never elected), George Herbert W. Bush (old Pappy), Ronnie Raygun, Harry Ass Truman, my God--can you believe there can be worst presidents than that crew just mentioned?
Congress today gave this "president" of ours the power to spy on all of us, no matter our profile, no matter the color of our skin, no matter our past service to this country, no matter whether we are aware of any "terrorist helping" on our parts, no matter, it doesn't matter, and that's all there is to it; all the bug-eyed buggers in the huge intelligence-gathering bureaus in today's pretty much Fascist style of administration, all under the wicked eye of old John Negroponte--a dude who isn't even a native born American, he's Greek-British, his father was one of those Greek shipping magnates, just like old cool daddy Ari Onassis who bragged to all his asshole buddies how he was gonna F all the famous women in the world, especially Jackie Kennedy, who not long after the mourning was over was cattin' around on Ari's yacht pissin' off aging, sagging old diva Maria Callas, who Ari had stolen from her devoted husband of many moons. Wow, what a crowd. Well now Johnny Boy is head of all this huge intelligence-gathering network, the CIA, the FBI, Homeland Security, the Secret Service--boy, we don't trust nobody and that includes our own mothers.
Better quit giving to charities. Now if some of your charity money ends up saving a little Muslim baby's life in Baghdad, BOOM, your ass is busted and you're Gitmo bound. Or let's say you have an Iraqi wife over here and you're Irish-American, a fireman; say your wife's father is found working in a makeshift hospital in Baghdad saving people's lives no matter their affiliation and an American soldier arrests this guy and accuses him of aiding an insurgent group--BOOM, the dad is thrown in an Iraqi prison, and next day you and your wife are gonna get your door broken down and both of you, according to these new powers, can be hauled off to Gitmo--hey, you were helping a proven terrerist, pal, your wife's father.
Hey, maybe you bought something on eBay from a Middle Eastern dude, maybe a coin, maybe some jewelry--let's say this dude proves to be an Al Queda devil and they find your name in his sales books--BOOM, down comes your door and off you go to Gitmo.
We here at The Daily Growler are lost in all the fumes from these toxic moves by this anti-American Congress, all of them, Dumbocrats or Repugnicans--it doesn't matter, they are all the same--that's what cynical pundits have been saying since Ronnie Raygun took over our country in the first big mean Conservative payback move--when they got clueless Ronnie into office, they knew they would have their hands up old Ron's ass working him like Edgar Bergen used to work Charlie McCarthy--that's when this all began. God, we are tired of it. No one seems to be bothered by it. Everyone seems secure. Everyone sees nothing wrong with this worthless little spoiled rich boy being our leader; everyone sees nothing wrong with Arnold Swartzenegger, a steroid-freak bodybuilder from Austria whose assinine "kill or be killed" blood and guts movies were second-rate copies of Sly Stallone's assinine RAMBO movies, being governor of Cally-forn-ee-ah, with an economy bigger than most nations--"It's over, Johnny!" But it ain't over; as Sam Kinison used to say, "It never ends." Sam was a growler--a growler who fired himself up into holy roller yowling and howling--flipping the verbal bird at the ignorant assholes who control us, who moralize over us, and now, who have the power to take away our lives just because a maniac who lied and cheated his way into the White (Trash) House has decided we are at war with some figments of his warped imagination, his old cold turkey nightmares--actually he has no imagination--that he sees in these dreams at night members of what he calls "the Axis of Evil." Let's check out some definitions here:
The term “axis of evil” was used by United States President George W. Bush in his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002 to describe regimes that purportedly sponsor terrorism and seek weapons of mass destruction. Bush named Iraq, Iran, and North Korea in his speech.
That's the Wikipedia entry for "Axis of Evil."
So let's hear this definition in Georgie Porgie's own words:
[Our goal] is to prevent regimes that sponsor terror from threatening America or our friends and allies with weapons of mass destruction. Some of these regimes have been pretty quiet since September the 11th. But we know their true nature. North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction, while starving its citizens.
Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Irainian people's hope for freedom.
Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax, and nerve gas, and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens—leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children. This is a regime that agreed to international inspections—then kicked out the inspectors. This is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world.
States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.
This is from Georgie Porgie's State of the Union Address, 2002.So there ya go folks; that's this huge force of terrorists we have coming against us and who in order to "wipe out" through "Freedom on the March" we must give up all life, liberty, and all pursuits of happiness; we must give up our rights to privacy; we must give up OUR rights to FREEDOM. These Conservatives for years have hated the Bill of Rights, except for that damn "right to bear arms" and oh how they love that one--hey, where's of gun-totin' Charlton "Alzheimer's Poster Boy" Heston these days?--does he still remember what a gun is? Does he really believe he's Moses now?
That right to bear arms is the right to bear arms and form a militia to go against a government that has been taken away from We the People of the US of A--that's our right under the Bill of Rights and IMPEACHMENT under the Constitution. Dick Gregory used to quote the part of the Bill of Rights that says it is our duty to bear arms and form a militia and overthrow any government that decides it is more powerful than the people it is supposed to serve. This "president" laughs (smirks) in our faces, always with a shrug and then an evil-glinting threat; now this asskissing Congress has given this "if there really is a devil this is it" "president" sweeping powers to spy on us, to arrest us--without warrants of any kind, too--and we will have no rights at all after we're arrested, including the right to a lawyer, the right to be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law; if you are a foreigner, you no longer have the right of habeas corpus (who has the body?); if you are an American citizen, you still have your right to habeas corpus though your court will be a military tribunal and believe us a military tribunal ain't a court on We the People's side--they are military, they work for the Pentagon, and the Pentagon is under the command of the great decider, our Commander in Chief, Chancellor for Life Georgie Porgie Puddin' Pie.
And Congress just handed these powers over to this dude who means everybody harm--it's like we all tried to kill his daddy. Oh, please, Pappy Bush, love that son of yours; take him in your arms and kiss him full on the lips--give that crazy bugger some lovin, Pappy. He doesn't know what love is; what human kindness is; what understanding is. Connect the dots; this dude failed painting by numbers in grade school (or wait a minute, that was Yale University, I'm sorry--isn't Yale, though, a 13th grade for rich fools?
