WHAT CONSTITUTION IS GEORGE UPHOLDING & PROTECTING?

If George Bush Is Our Leader Where Is He Leading Us?





What Constitution precisely did George Bush put his traitorous hand on the Bible to swear to uphold and protect? I think I must be angry.

This American government’s administration that we now have representing us to the rest of the world is corrupt and morally bankrupt. And the United States of America is financially bankrupt. Do we really think our taxes won’t have to astronomically and necessarily be raised to pay for this Iraq war that George led us like lemmings into? George won’t do it. He isn’t responsible. We have no idea how in debt we are. George acts like it is not a concern. And we have no idea how affected the soldiers and families of our soldiers are from this disaster – the Iraq war - that Rumsfeld kept asking us if we would rather fight this fight here or there.

At 9:15 p.m eastern standard time USA time April 12, 2007 this was the cost of the war:

$416,605,400,890

But know that the counter is going constantly, so the number changes every second.

The following was taken from this web sit (at the site the first three lines listed below are actually links to take you to get information on those topics):

U.S. lacks mechanism to accurately track troops wounded in Iraq

A Running Log of the Wounded

UPI reports :

As many as 1 of every 10 soldiers from the war on terror evacuated to the Army's biggest hospital in Europe was sent there for mental problems.

Between 8 and 10 percent of nearly 12,000 soldiers from the war on terror, mostly from Iraq, treated at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany had "psychiatric or behavioral health issues," according to the commander of the hospital, Col. Rhonda Cornum.

That means about 1,000 soldiers were evacuated for mental problems.

The hospital has treated 11,754 soldiers from the war on terror, with 9,651 from Iraq and the rest from Afghanistan, according to data released by the hospital.”

I have been repressing my distaste and repulsion for George Bush for so long that it makes me want to burst out in raw truth. Not that kind of truth that has to cloak itself in polite and cloudy language, but truth that comes from just saying it like I feel it. We need to beware of the metaphorical dog that might bite us in our pretentious mentality and behind.

When war is the answer, what was the question?

………………………………………………………………………..

War is big business. The United States of America is one of biggest suppliers of weapons around the world to so-called stable governments, but also to unstable governments. Do we really want peace? It would put a lot of people out of business. Hypocrisy.

It’s on the same plane of hypocrisy as saying we care about poor people then want to pay wages below a reasonable amount that won’t allow people to live with the bare necessities. We say we don’t want the Mexican immigrants to be in our country. We are building a fence between Mexico and U.S.A. so that the unwanted Mexicans theoretically will be kept out of our country. But then we love the wages that the Mexicans will put up with. It’s “slavery” in a different form – using people who will take our bad treatment because they feel they have no way to support their families. They can't question their rights being possibly violated because they are enslaved by the fear of what we as a country can do to them, therefore the welfare of their children.


Most of the clothes on our racks come from under-developed countries where sweat shops afford us our low prices on clothing. Do we really want to know the conditions our clothing is made in? Do we really care if a child sits for 18 hours a day at 6 years old weaving an oriental rug for us to buy and walk on in our homes?

If the short term result of changing our ways to address global environmental effects means we would have to adjust our daily habitual ways and some corporations would not make the profits they are accustomed to – would we just choose the apathetic route of staying the course?

Certainly the implied answers to these questions are far from upholding the golden rule, Do to others as you would have them do to you”. http://www.jcu.edu/philosophy/gensler/goldrule.htm

We would want someone treating us with more thoughtful, wise and compassionate acts than we are and have been for a long time.

So, let’s stop and think. Let’s stop pretending who we are and face ourselves in the behavioral mirror. Let’s find truth buried under our hypocrisy. Let’s wake up and be alive. Staying in the status quo while spewing hyperboles of our values and honor is just the lazy man’s way. Mr. Bush. And the rest of us, too. We the People put him in the position of power and of being our leader. And by default, the leader of the world - until some other country bypasses our pretentious power base, like China and claims the title of “World Power”.

George Bush in China trying to escape through a locked door to avoid being questioned.

Okay so I didn’t vote for George Bush. And I admit a little guiltily that I loathe him as our leader. But there he is. Chest puffed out. Inarticulate. Lame-brained. By all accounts, unabashed by his failures, maybe even ignorant of them. But this is a democracy. No one told us, as a country of “we the people” that he had to be our dictator. It’s sad. Just painfully sad - that we can get it so wrong with all we constitutionally had handed to us.

“We the People” need to take back our empowerment, take back our government and pressure our leaders to be the kind of representational government that we pretend we are.

Well said. Your comments about the phycoligical effects on our soldiers hit home, as my partner is in the military. That was a righteous rant against President Numbnuts.

d-man,

My heart goes out to you and your partner. Please, let me know when your partner comes home. I can't imagine how it is for you both to be apart in such a heart-wrenching way.

Thanks for the encouraging words with my blogs. I love doing them - I find it fulfills a creative need that I have.
