So You Think I'm Crazy? Just Wait.

The US carrier group heads into the Straits of Hormuz in broad daylight, showing the might of the American civilization to the bastard, irresponsible, criminal State of Iran. Meanwhile, the Democratic Congress caves in to the administrations demand that the troops be funded so that we may keep the fight for something or other going on in our new conquered (well, somewhat conquered) Middle East State of Iraq. The Congress yields to Bush on funding the troops because they have no spine. The news tonight (CBS, with Katie Couric) charged that Iran has kidnapped Americans working inside their country, while American troops are increasingly finding more and more Iranians working inside of Iraq. 

What perfect crap. Any American that believes that Iran is a threat to America deserves to suffer all the consequences that will erupt if we attack them. The big problem here is that the 75% of Americans that don’t want war will still suffer the consequences. I heard that Iran just signed a treaty with Belarus. Is that odd? No, it’s not odd. Iranians happen to have relations with the rest of the world, even if we refuse to negotiate with them. In fact, one of Iran’s leading trading partners is The Commonwealth of Independent States (Russia). In fact, Iran buys much of its hard goods and technology from Russia.
So here we are in the United States, banging the drums again. The President’s loyal friend Alberto “Lying Ass” Gonzales is not poised to fall on his sword for his friend. This means that the Democrats can use him for target practice. Maybe throwing Alberto from office will show the Democrats that they really don’t suffer from PD (political dysfunction). Maybe they will actually get some cojones and start investigating how we got into this war, who authorized the wiretaps, and why has New Orleans been hung out to dry!
It’s hard to live in this country with a chronic case of rage. What’s harder is hearing idiot commentators on television telling the people of the nation bullshit propaganda that comes directly out of the Dick’s office. You KNOW he is selling snake oil, yet people you talk to act as if everything is peachy. We have two criminals entrenched in the Capitol running our Nation, and the Constitution into the ground, and people are walking around like nothing’s happening. Meanwhile the Carrier Group joins the other Carrier Groups in the area and the United States, land that I love, starts playing “knock the chip off my shoulder” with the Iranians.

What the hell has Iran done to us? The hostages are ancient history. Don’t you think we’re even by now after we armed Saddam to the teeth with modern weapons and chemical munitions and turned him loose against Iran and then kept him supplied for eight years? Wasn’t that enough of a payback? Do you really believe that this crusade against Iran is really about nuclear weapons? The truth is, it has nothing to do with nuclear weapons and everything to do with taking Americans eyes off of the crimes our government has been committing for the last six years. It has everything to do with using force to get our way in the Middle East. It has everything to do with appeasing Saudi Arabia that has their hands so far up the Bush Administrations ass that they can make this President’s mouth move with two fingers.

Saudi Arabia hates Iran. Bush does just what Saudi Arabia wants him to do. Nineteen of the hijackers of 9/11 were Saudi Arabian nationals. Al Qaeda is largely funded by the benevolent nation of Saudi Arabia so that they won’t go into Saudi Arabia and bring their Jihad back home to the secular leaning House of Saud. Yet it’s been proven again and again that the entire Bush family is in bed with the Saudi’s. The Cheney’s too. Meanwhile, Joe Blow blames the high price of gasoline on the Arabs, when it’s Exxon/Mobil and Texaco and Shell that are pulling anti-trust rackets all over the globe. The problem with the price of gasoline is in his own backyard! Complain forever, you have oilmen in the Whitehouse. You would think that the Democrats would jump on that fact. The price of oil rises 50% with oilmen in the Whitehouse, yet they are strangely quiet about it. Why? Probably because they are being paid off by Big Oil too! When it cost’s millions of dollars to run a Congressional race, they need every donation they can get.

OK, I’m a little bitter. Maybe I’m an alarmist. Just wait until we are at war with Iran and arguing about funding that too. Wait until Bush “temporarily” suspends the Constitution. Wait until the Republicans steal ANOTHER Presidential election. Just wait until you company gives you a pink slip because they are moving to China and you’re flipping burgers at McDonalds along with your son who’s trying to pay back $30,000.00 of student loans. Just wait until you’re pissed off because they put that fence up between our country and Mexico because YOU want to go to Mexico! Just wait. Keep ignoring what’s happening. Just keep thinking that I’m bitter, but I have to tell you one thing…I don’t make this stuff up.
