So George Bush wrote a book--if you believe that, you probably also believe he actually won the elections in 2000 and 2004.

Yes, I am sure, George, who couldn't string two coherent words together without the help of a team of speech-writers and policy makers, wrote a 512 page book all by his widdle self. Whatever! Can you even imagine George at a computer keyboard, with a full ashtray next to him and a half finished scotch within easy reach, pounding away at his "book?" That image makes me giggle.

I have written five books, it's hard work and "Junior" has never had to do a spot of hard work in his entire life and has been constantly bailed out of bad judgment (Decisions?) and the military draft by George Senior and his friends.

George calls his book Decision Points. What a title for the ol' Decider himself! George's "Decisions" rank near the very top in U.S. history for heartache and despair, and reportedly, in the book, he says that his biggest "failure" as POTUS was not privatizing Social Security. Not the deaths, or displacement of millions of people from his phony War on Terror, or the torture and false imprisonment of thousands, or the near total collapse of the global economy, or the fact that his administration ignored many warnings of an impending attack in the US before 9/11, or the gutting of public education, or the continuing destruction of the environment, or his non-response to Katrina, or (fill in the blank).

I am not going to write a review of Decision Points because I would rather read the Manhattan white pages than read whatever garbage emanates from the mind of Puppet-Liar-Bush and his ghost-writer(s). I have about, oh, say--10,000 other things I would rather spend $35 U.S.D. on, for sure. Besides all that, I am sure there's about as much truth in Bush's book as the piece of fiction that came out of the 9/11 Commission. However, George and his "book" are not really the subject of this piece, anyway.

I have been to George and Laura's new neighborhood in Dallas to protest the fact that a self-acknowledged war criminal is allowed to live in peace and quiet when the world is far worse off because of him, and like mentioned before, so many people are dead for his lies. Even though I get that he's not the president any more, we somehow need to recall the pain his administration inflicted as most of us forgot the pain from Vietnam in a way that doesn't detract from the fact that we still have innocents in harms way.

Next week, on November 16th, George will be breaking ground on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas for his presidential lie-bury, and I know many people who fought that decision. Even though George is a Methodist and Laura sits on the board of trustees for the college, so many Methodists reject his wars and lies. Nevertheless, the library will go forward and some of us will be there to protest.

I will be there, but I will be there to finally say: "Hello! George Bush is not president anymore and it's time to let go of hatred for him as our raison d'être." Of course, I can't stand him, I can't stand Cheney, I can't stand Rice who is out on her own book tour, I can't stand John Yoo, and I believe most of the Bush mob need to be in some deep, dark hole for life. Except, with the Obama regime, that's not happening. Obama and his DOJ are doing everything in their power to protect these criminals as Nancy Pelosi and her Congress did!

Do you know why Obama and the Democrats are protecting the Bush scandal? It's really simple. If you start pulling skeletons out of Bush's closet, they are going to start coming out with a lot of D's behind their names, too.

Prominent Democratic co-conspirators would be people like Hillary Clinton who went on the war-offensive for the White House Iraq Group, like a Democratic Condoleezza Rice, who warned of "mushroom" clouds and the threat of WMD and Saddam Hussein. There's Nancy Pelosi who was fully briefed on torture tactics in 2002 as ranking member of the House "Intelligence" Committee.

Then there's the stain of uber-Zionist Joe Lieberman who never, ever met a war to protect his beloved Israel, as a Democrat or Independent, which he didn't absolutely adore.

How can we ever forget Council of Foreign Relations member, Madeleine Albright and her support of the deaths of about 1.5 million Iraqi children, and her boss, War President, Bill Clinton's, killing of those children and others in Iraq with weekly bombing raids and savage sanctions that broke the back of the people of that country while Saddam and his family still flourished?

There have been scores of Democratic warmongers, and in fact, a Democrat, no matter how much Republicans are feared, dropped the only two nukes that have ever been used (that's why we have the "moral" high ground as the World Police?)

Since Obama has been president, the antiwar row has been a tough one to hoe. I have organized protests that drew less than one-dozen people, when we used to be able to gather hundreds or even thousands in backwater, difficult to reach, Crawford, Texas, because of the white-hot, burning-Bush abhorrence. We should have the same intense distaste and disgust for war no matter who is president.

Now, we will gather again in Dallas to protest Bush, and hate him if you must, but the wars he began are still being vigorously prosecuted by the current War President--and the lives and well being of our troops and the innocent are still very precarious.

The Empire is the scourge of the world and it's time that we here in the U.S. did our part to try and stop it--not just of the problem, but the whole enchilada.

There's no danger in being an antiwar activist now, because the Republicans have made the predictable, cyclical electoral resurgence, and the Democrats really can't lose much more for a couple of years!
