Operation Rolling Blunder
By Ernest Stewart

Let me tell you what I liked about that Gulf War: it was the first war that appeared on every television channel, including cable. And even though the TV show consisted largely of Pentagon war criminals displaying maps and charts, it got very good ratings. And that makes sense, because we like war. We're a warlike people. We can't stand not to be fucking with someone. We couldn't wait for the Cold War to end so we could climb into the big Arab sandbox and play with our nice new toys. We enjoy war. And one reason we enjoy it is that we're good at it. You know why we're good at it? Because we get a lot of practice.

This country is only 200 years old, and already we've had ten major wars. We average a major war every twenty years, So we're good at it. And it's just as well we are, because we're not very good at anything else. Can't build a decent car anymore. Can't make a TV set, a cell phone, or a VCR. Got no steel industry left. No textiles. Can't educate our young people. Can't get health care to our old people. But we can bomb the shit outta your country, all right. We can bomb the shit outta your country. Especially if your country is full of brown people. Oh, we like that, don't we? That's our hobby now. But it's also our new job in the world: bombing brown people. Iraq, Panama, Grenada, Libya. You got some brown people in your country? Tell 'em to watch the fuck out, or we'll goddamn bomb them!

Well, who were the last white people you can remember that we bombed? In fact, can you remember any white people we ever bombed? The Germans! That's it. Those are the only ones. And that was only because they were tryin' to cut in on our action. They wanted to dominate the world. Bullshit! That's our job! That's our fuckin' job! But the Germans are ancient history. These days, we only bomb brown people. And not because they're cutting in our action; we do it because they're brown. Even those Serbs we bombed in Yugoslavia aren't really white, are they? Naaah! They're sort of down near the swarthy end of the white spectrum. Just brown enough to bomb. I'm still waiting for the day we bomb the English. People who really deserve it. ~~~ George Carlin

Thinking back on the 2008 election Obama was put in office to do just two things and had he done just those two things he would have been known as one of America's best presidents, instead of one of our worst. It wouldn't have matter what the Rethuglicans said or did, he would have come out of it smelling like a rose.

What were those things that we ask him to do? End the wars and bring the Crime Family Bush and their allies to justice. Just that, would have shown us and the world that the US was a country governed by laws. A country where war criminals were brought to justice for their crimes against humanity, war crimes, crimes against the Constitution for their many acts of treason and sedition. All pretty straight forward things that an honest person would have jumped at the chance to do, for not only America, but for the world. Peace and justice, simple things to do, if he wasn't just another 1% puppet.

However, he did neither. Consider when he won the Democratic nomination what was the very first thing he did. Did he thank all the Americans for helping him achieve the nomination, did he even thank his party for giving him this enormous chance? He did neither, but ran directly off to the American traitors of AIPAC and pledged his undying loyalty for them and their fifth column masters in Tel Aviv. Of course, he couldn't sock it Dubya, not without leaving himself open to similar charges. Not only did he adopt all of Smirky's acts of treason but made many of them even worse.

Did he help all those millions of Americans that were drowning in a sea of debt brought on by Dubya's pals on Wall Street. He did not, but instead gave a few trillions to those to big to jail crooks, something that he no doubt learned at Grandma's (the CIA bankers) knee. Millions of homes were lost and tens of millions of Americans were literally thrown out into the street, followed by major cuts to food stamps so the folks living in Obama tent cities went hungry too. Instead of giving anyone who wanted it a chance to get Medicare from birth forward, he took that off the table and forced us to buy health insurance from his corpo-rat pals.

As for the wars, he didn't end any of them, but adopted them as his own and added tens of thousand of our children to the already lost causes, and then added even more wars to the list. For the Rethuglicans spokes-weasels who called him a Muslim he did what they had only dreamed about doing, starting several more wars until he had seven wars going, all against Muslim states, sounds like your typical Christian to me. When thrown out of Afghanistan he got a puppet elected, well, put in power in a crooked election, to allow us to stay there for at least another decade. So we'll be killing innocents there for at least 23 years years before we pull out, creating millions more enemies, which is, of course, the reason for doing so. Can't have an endless war without an endless supply of enemies! You'll recall from a standstill it took us way less than four years to conquer and quell the three biggest war making powers on the planet back in WWII. Twenty three years to stop what amounted to Afghans versions of the Republican party, i.e., a bunch of Nazi politicians using the equivalent of spears against H-Bombs, and so far, they have fought us to a standstill!

When things began to quiet down in Iraq we started arming and supporting Isis who gave him another excuse to keep the war going in Iraq and start a new one in Syria. So to say Barry is a major disappointment to all peace loving peoples throughout the world is a vast understatement. Hearing Paul Krugman leap to his defense reminded me that Paul dances to the same piper that Barry dances to, i.e., the pied piper of Tel Aviv, who, of course, is the only winner of our illegal, immoral wars, and one of the winners, of our to big to jail banksters. Trillions of dollars for Israel but no money for needed things back home, nope, got to cut back on everything to feed the War Machine. Meanwhile, Bush and Cheney have crawled back out from underneath their rocks to become spokes-weasels for their acts of treason instead of being down in Gitmo doing life. Being water-boarded daily, and having broom handles shoved up their ass, which is, a whole lot less, than what they deserve, and now we're told that the 2016 election will likely be between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton. I must add, that we deserve nothing less!

Thanks for your presence of mind!


We get by with a little help from our friends!
So please help us if you can...?


So how do you like Bush Lite so far?
And more importantly, what are you planning on doing about it?

Until the next time, Peace!
