Time For A New Adventure

Something sent to me by another of my midwestern friends. Glad to see you guys getting active. Thanks Frank.

From the close of a recent Bill Mahr show:

"Mr. President, this job can't be fun for you any more. There's no more
money to spend--you used up all of that. You can't start another war
because you used up the army. And now, darn the luck, the rest of your
term has become the Bush family nightmare: helping poor people. Listen to
your Mom. The cupboard's bare, the credit cards maxed out. No one's
speaking to you. Mission accomplished.


"Now it's time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk
away. Like you did with your military service and the oil company and the
baseball team. It's time. Time to move on and try the next fantasy job.
How about cowboy or space man? Now I know what you're saying: there's so
many other things that you as President could involve yourself in. Please
don't. I know, I know. There's a lot left to do. There's a war with
Venezuela. Eliminating the sales tax on yachts. Turning the space
program over to the church. And Social Security to Fannie Mae. Giving
embryos the vote.


"But, Sir, none of that is going to happen now. Why? Because you govern
like Billy Joel drives. You've performed so poorly I'm surprised that you
haven't given yourself a medal. You're a catastrophe that walks like a
man. Herbert Hoover was a shitty president, but even he never conceded an
entire city to rising water and snakes.


"On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four
airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New
Orleans. Maybe you're just not lucky. I'm not saying you don't love this
country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the
other side.


"So, yes, God does speak to you. What he is saying is: 'Take a hint.' "

How the right can even attempt to justify/qualify/apologist for this bunch is mind boggling. Hell, these guys aren't even conservatives, as a quick peek at the facts and comparison to conservative values should quickly confirm. They are the Democrats best friends. (grin)

Thanks for putting this on the blog, Ron. I love it!!!
Also, all those other Bill Maher fans out there should check out his book, "When You're Driving Alone, You're Driving With Bin Laden." which is sort of like the posters they put out during WW II with text included.

Real Time with Bill Maher

Sept. 9, also from the above that Ron posted:

And finally, New Rule: America must recall the president. That's what this country needs. A good, old-fashioned, California-style recall election! Complete with Gary Coleman, porno actresses and action film stars. And just like Schwarzenegger's predecessor here in California, George Bush is now so unpopular, he must defend his jog against...Russell Crowe. Because at this point, I want a leader who will throw a phone at somebody. In fact, let's have only phone throwers. Naomi Campbell can be the vice-president!

Sept. 16:

Is George Bush purely evil? Of course not. And that's what's so evil about him. He doesn't twirl a mustache and smirk and cackle. Well, he doesn't twirl a mustache. He's like the Peanuts character Pigpen. Wherever he goes, he stirs up such a humongous mess it can only be cleaned up by Halliburton. But he is not pure evil.

Because evil is a chain. Did any one person doom New Orleans? No, it's a chain. People vote for a corrupt leader; a corrupt leader puts unqualified cronies in high places, and when those cronies f* up, evil gets done. The devil didn't fly up from hell and knock a hole in that levee. The levee just didn't get built because the money for it went to rich people's tax cuts and pork projects and corporate welfare.

Evil isn't "Salem's Lot." It's Trent Lott. This week, an ailing American bald eagle was found to be dying from mercury poisoning. Republicans immediately tried to blame it on the eagle's lifestyle choices. But it's worth noting that also this week, the White House threatened to veto limits on mercury pollution. Now, pure evil would be if George Bush sat around the White House saying, "Let's poison eagles!" And even I don't believe George Bush would do that.

Cheney would do that. And even he is not pure evil. Dick Cheney doesn't hate poor children and caribou. They're just in the way.


Great stuff Bill does. :)

Well, according to a few that have been interviewed on Coast to Coast, you're not awfully far off about the hurricanes... that is, if you believe what they're saying can be done.

Am frequently caught between science and superstition, myself. (must be the Irish Catholic in me)
Very tempted to believe it was no coincidence that 4 hurricanes hit Fla. and that it was a warning to Jeb Bush from a higher power NOT TO CHEAT AGAIN. Didn't work, tho. Personally, I believe in global warming and that it is having a severe impact on the weather. Lots of people are waking up to that-maybe too late.

Yep, and those hurricanes ain't over with yet, either.

I lean more toward the scientific, but still question a lot about the "conspiracy theories".

Then again, "conspiracy theories" now, are what used to be called Freedom of Speech...

Don't know if you've heard of HAARP, but...

HAARP: VANDALISM IN THE SKY?

snip:

The military says the HAARP system could:

* give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986);
* replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology;
* be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system;
* provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while keeping the military's own communications systems working;
* provide a wide-area Earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements;
* be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over a large area;
* be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making other technologies obsolete."


Read the whole page. It's extremely interesting.

Thanks Dedanna, I mentioned HAARP on the show on friday as a point of interest. At least it is something to know and stick back there somewhere for full perspective and awareness.

Interesting stuff, eh?

There's more where that came from, if you are ever in need of it. Different subjects, but all extremely interesting nonetheless.
