    President Bush Says Goodbye

    Well, as expected, Bush took credit for a lot of things and justified his bad decisions. I found one piece of the speech particularly hypocritical.

    Bush said in his speech that spreading an ideology via violence is always EVIL. Immediately after, he said that spreading the fundamentals of freedom and democracy is always GOOD. Well, the fundamentals of freedom and democracy are an ideology. We spreaded that ideology by invading Afghanistan and Iraq. By invading Afghanistan and Iraq, we caused a lot of innocent people to be violently killed. That makes Bush's actions EVIL by his own logic.

    Just a thought...

    Haha, that was the first thing that went through my mind too. And, judging by the comments I saw on the various stories about this speech, it was the first thing that went through a lot of other people's minds.

    Last summer I wrote a bit of beat style poetry, I think the piece fits this momentous occasion but it was not actually written for it...



    The **** Parade

    A civil defense siren screams
    Outside my window
    An old Cadillac topped with bullhorns
    Drives through neighborhoods
    Tapes of William Burroughs
    Blare out over the rooftops
    “Nothing is true-
    Everything is illusion”
    School boy marching bands
    Blurt obscenities out of their trumpets
    The mayor and the bishop
    Marching side by side
    Carrying a silver platter
    Topped by a crowned turd
    As I watched the parade pass by
    I wondered
    What did that piece of **** ever do for me?



    (mods, if that was too naughty feel free to pull it)


    I must say however, I can't blame Bush personally for all of it, the whole tamale of his administration is foul and dedicated to nefarious actions. All American politicians are in the tank for corporations, it just depends on which corporations we wish to be dominated by (what kinda choice is that). In the 2000 campaign Gore and Bush were both backed by the same conglomerates. It was only outside of that initial money where Bush and his people were backed mainly by defense and oil speculators. Perhaps Obama will be backed by scientists and environmental corporations and perhaps this won't be as bad, but that remains to be seen, it's still a corporate Keynesian economic system. I don't think we can ever can let our guard down against any of these politicians and governments.

    Probably the truest video of a politician's view of the people I ever saw was of Bush asking if the camera was on and then giving the camera the finger. He should have ended every speech that way since he did it verbally during every speech....

    About time, why didnt we get rid of this guy a long time ago.

    I loved the irony in his statements about ideology being forced upon people being bad, how we should always support the ideal of peace, yet his government is the only one in the world that is refusing to pressure for a cease fire in Gaza. The whole spread of democracy thing made me laugh too because the democracies we have put in place are a joke and only there because we continue to give them guns and money. And if a country democratically elects someone we dont like well we just dont recognize them. Yup this guy was all about peace, democracy, and not forcing ideology on people.

    Worst President Ever.

    He has to be stupidest President we've ever had.
