It's not that Bush appears on the world stage and makes an idiot of himself continuously, confirming what the rest of the world already knows, i.e., that our president and his administration is whacko. What really upsets me with that is Bush takes us with him. It makes each and everyone of us sickos too! Yes, sadly, we've become a country of idiots. That's the state of America today--a rogue nation, mucking up security globally. America is a loose cannon rolling dangerously around a ship's deck destroying shit in turbulent seas made increasingly more perilous by a captain and his cadre of officer's controlling its helm.
When I speak of our president as an idiot, I'm not referencing his dyfunctional psychologies that manifest in ways that would render him unemployable in a fast food chain or car wash, work places that require one to be alert, able to react to situations without stammering, have the agility to be flexible, the ability to think on one's feet, and probably most important, a capacity for civility and pleasant demeanor with everyone, whether he agrees with then or not. You don't destroy customers who may be difficult or do not agree with you.
It's doubtful Bush could last a week in jobs such as those, his only qualification being his daddy was a congressman, CIA head and former president. And in those jobs his daddy got him (to include his present one), he's mucked 'em all up badly. But none of his previous jobs threatened civilization and life on Earth before.
No, when thinking of Bush as idiot, I'm talking about the betrayals of the American public uncovered about, or conceded by, this administration day after day. I needn't repeat 'em here, we're all buried deeply beneath growing heaps of their bullshit and lies. And it's sheer lunacy.
And the military isn't any help, as witnessed by Tuesday's press conference love-in conducted by Rumsfeld and his chief love interest Peter (General) Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and top military "yes man". Idiots.
And the jello journalists especially are not doing their job, as witnessed by Tuesday's corps of 'em in attendence at that charade. Practicing the Bush administration tactic of disarming an already impotent media audience with a terrible pun or bad joke tossed to the ravenous audience with their resultant chuckles and guffaws of ecstasy really, really sickens me! Such pissant wimps. The press is impressed by pressing the sheets of the same bed with these perpetraitors of international crimes against humanity. As Bush himself must think, "The press are idiots!"
And on and on it goes down the line. From the intel community that has become nothing more than manufacturers of "facts" to support the administration's delusional fantasies, the FBI that is so busy spying on Americans to preclude 'em fighting real terrorism, to a congress that can't even slap the president on the wrist with a pitiful censure. They're all freakin' idiots. And at some point, this creeps downward and engulfs each and everyone of us. We all become nutso accomplices because, no one seems able to stop the insanity. So we all must condone it, right? You know the world is shaking its collective head in utter disbelief.
And so, here we go again. Prepping for another war with the same hackneyed and contrived excuses we've heard before and before. With two messes decaying into greater chaos daily, we're about to start another in Iran. Oh, but this one will be different they fantasize. We all know Iran is just seething beneath the surface to overthrow their fanatical leadership. Geez, that sounds like all those roses Iraqis threw at the feet of their American invaders three years ago. Not to worry, when we get thru with Iran, we'll have converted the entire populace into a frothing anti-American mob.
But what really--no, really!--disturbs me is the rest of the world seeing our psychopathic personalitied leadership as totally whacked out on their dangerous bloodlusty adventurism that more and more includes me, and you, and all of us as part of this insanity. And there seems absolutely nothing any of us can do about it. We truly are a very sick nation.
