“Mom, is George Bush a terrorist?”

Sometimes an unexpected question really clarifies one's thinking. This afternoon I experienced one of those moments. My son, Arthur, asked me the question while I was busy tapping away on the computer. I paused; this also happens occasionally.


Arthur, continuing in the absence of my tapping clarified that he was not saying that George Bush lurked in airports with bombs strapped to his torso or any other part of himself. He meant that George Bush, by enabling the rape of America by corporations, terrorized him and everyone else. Arthur listens. In 1997 Arthur had a motorcycle accident that changed a lot of things for him. Along with discovering his relationship with Jesus he pays attention to politics. Life is what happens when you were making other plans, we all know that.

I had been looking up the wording for the Executive Order recently signed into operation (I can't say law because it clearly conflicts with that.) I found it smack dab on the White House page, in front of God and everyone.

NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51

HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD-20

Reading the longish text made it clear that the author was doing all possible to obfuscate the Order's real intentions. I found these to be especially interesting.

(a) Ensuring the continued functioning of our form of government under the Constitution, including the functioning of the three separate branches of government;”

Three Branches? Since Congress is not prepared to oppose Bush, something made clear after the vote this last week on funding the operation in Iraq we now know for sure that Congress is firmly in the pocket of the CorporaState. The Supreme Court has been frozen solid for a while now. The 'unitary executive theory' (read this monarchy) has been effectively established. Bush and his NeoCon cohort are very practiced at pretending all is normal, so they cite the comfortable, familiar terms; Three branches, two clipped off at the roots.

(b) Providing leadership visible to the Nation and the world and maintaining the trust and confidence of the American people;”

Trust and confidence? Do they ever let George Bush look at his popularity ratings? I wouldn't trust him to take care of my dead cat's ashes.

(c) Defending the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and preventing or interdicting attacks against the United States or its people, property, or interests;”

The Constitution clearly needs protection FROM Bush and his friends, which includes the corporations who employ him. I say that and I am a member of the National Federation of Republican Women, for gosh sakes. Imagine what a liberal would say.

(d) Maintaining and fostering effective relationships with foreign nations;”

Like our relationship with Iraq and Iran perhaps?

(e) Protecting against threats to the homeland and bringing to justice perpetrators of crimes or attacks against the United States or its people, property, or interests;”

Great! When do the impeachment hearings begin?
