Tonight, George W. Bush (its not ‘dubya’…just because he speaks like a moron doesn’t mean we need to emulate) will be making a speech at Fort Bragg in North Carolina in the hopes to revive the war lust in a very peace hungry nation. In my [in]expert opinion, I don’t believe things will turn out like apple pie.
Bush will have a lot to say tonight concerning the 27 month war in Iraq. He states (in a pre-released statement from the White House) We are there to complete a mission, and it’s an important mission. Um…well…thanks for that very insightful comment, George. I’m sorry you don’t have the time to adequately explain what that mission is, seeing as how I thought we completed it months ago.
Now, to educated and rational individuals, this will come as no surprise. But for everyone else, prepare yourself for what could quite possibly be the shocker (haha) of a lifetime. Ready?
There is a big slide in support of both the war and the president!
Change your underwear and clean your colostomy bags, kids, because the liberals are on their way to the top! As support for the war reaches record lows, which many analysts are comparing to the levels of the final years of the Vietnam War, we find that even the least likely of groups are beginning to question the backwater wisdom of our favorite redneck rancher. The republicans.
Many of the tight asses of our government are finding the strength to pull themselves out from under the rock they’ve been living under and have seen the light of day. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska is quoted as saying The White House is completely disconnected from reality…It’s just like they’re making it up as they go along. Now, color me shocked (haha…it still makes me laugh), but can you believe this is coming from the mouth of a republican?!
Now, Bush plans on saying that all that is needed is a little more time, then things with our country will be all hunky dory again. He says Like most Americans, I see the images of violence and bloodshed. Every picture is horrifying and the suffering is real…It is worth it. But then again, he’s not out on the battlefield. And I would venture a guess that a family member or friend of Georgey would never see the back side of a jumbo jet, nevermind touchdown in Iraq.
A little while ago, Dick Cheney faught off some heart palpatations to make a statement. He said The American people do not falter under threat, and we will not allow our future to be determined by car bombers and assassins. Really, Dick? Because I feel that life after this war, 9/11, and your initial inauguration has changed dramatically (and if not dramatically, then at least to the point of pointless annoyance).
Recall, if you will, that amazingly efficient Patriot Act. You know, the thing that allows the government to sneak a peek at everything and anything that has to do with you ever? They know of every book you’ve bought, every movie you’ve rented, and every porn site you’ve subscribed to. Not to mention the fact that it is just as useful as Michael Chertoff. Berkeley recently tried to get a prominent Indonesian scholar to come and take up residence at their school for awhile. You know. To educate. They had to wait for almost a year to go through all the red tape set up before a visa could be attained. Patriot Act attack!
Mmm…safety tastes good. But it tends to spoil when you’re waiting a year for it’s delivery.
In a war that has killed over 1,740 U.S. military personnel and about 12,000 Iraqi civilians, it seems we are still not done yet. And that irks me.
So I emailed Bush and Dick about it. Along with some other concerns. Here is the email…
re: My tax refund
Hello President Bush and Vice President Cheney,
I am writing you to pose to you a few questions that have been on my mind as of late. While I realize your email addresses probably don’t go directly to you, I am hoping that maybe some one will find it in their heart to print out a copy and put it in your ‘in’ pile (hint hint, intern).
Anyways, I have several questions for the two of you, and if you could take some time out of your day (maybe during dinner, or even while taking a coffee break) to answer these concerns, that’d be swell.
- We have been at war for about 27 months now, and I have to say, I’m not in full support of it. Not to say I don’t support our troops. I have nothing but the utmost respect for them, and hope they all come back home safely. However, I think this war has gotten a bit out of hand. And (no offense) really stupid. So, I was wondering if you could pull back the troops and end the war? You said you would, once a government was established. And it is. So I think it would be best if you stick to your word and not lie or be shady. No one likes shady. Keep that in mind for future references.
- Speaking of shady, why are you trying to create an amendment to the constitution that would make an entire group within our society second class citizens? This I’m slightly confused about. I feel that since we (we as in rational people…or the government itself) have said there should be a separation between church and state, I think we should keep it that way. If you were able to give me a host of reasons as to why the entire GLBT community is a detriment to our society’s health, I may rethink my opinion. I just think that if this group of people, who are one of the groups who spend the most money in our economy, as well as being a huge help with taking care of unwanted, abused, and orphaned children, should have the same rights that are afforded to every other person in our country.
I have other questions and concerns as well, but we can save those for another time and place. Maybe tea at the Watergate or something. <!– D([“mb”,” \r\n \r\nFinally, I leave you with a request.

Almost immediately, I received an email stating that the president and vice president do not answer their own emails directly, as they are arriving in such overwhelming numbers (that and Bush forgot his password). They gave me the link for a webmail server, where I could send in a similar message through a White House website. I don’t know if they will ever see the email, though, which is sad.
I just wish I had their google accounts.
If you yourself would like to contact the White House, here is their info
