This Was Never Supposed to Happen Here.

This was never supposed to happen here, that a biological father and former president would one day endorse and support the presidential crimes of his "lying, cheating, murdering" son, whose penchant for "ignoring treaties, breaking law after law, overthrowing the Constitution, and waging illegal war after illegal war"1 has reverted this beloved land to something far more backward than anyone thought it would ever be possible to happen here-but it has.

It has happened here that this blue blooded son of the House of Bush with a penchant for power and control has committed said crimes against the Constitution of the United States, and against the people of the world, and that his wimpish and equally criminally dishonest father has stated, referring to his son, "I support him with every fiber of my being."

So there you have it, a president supporting another president, a father supporting his son in the commission of many crimes against humanity, against the people of the world and the U.S. and against the very Constitution which has been the bedrock of our American democracy.

All of the above stated crimes against the principles set forth by the Founding Fathers in the American Constitution and by the Geneva Accords and against the essence of the meaning of America and Americans, coming forth from the House of Bush, a dynasty more concerned with Power for the sake of power getting, self promotion, self enrichment and self advancement than with the use of Power for the benefit of mankind.

And there you have it, too. Like a string of beads from the House of Bush served upon America, the lies and advancements of a son who, like his father before him, and the father's father before him are wheeler-dealers enamored with power, and with seeking to advance themselves politically, no matter by what means.

Two men of amoral character who like the traveling salesmen of the old west, lie, cheat and connive to promote their power grab, make the money and advance themselves-no matter what, have, almost sequentially advanced themselves to the power of the white house making it a fortified garret rather than the house of wisdom and freedom it should be.

This was never supposed to happen here. Not like this.

Not since King George declared that he was the only one who had the power to make laws-but it has.

Not since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence signed by the fifty-six Representatives of the United States of America in the second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776 and the subsequent celebratory mood all over the land back in 1976 commemorating 200 years of Independence Day.

This was never supposed to happen here-not since I read the Diary of Ann Frank and Auschwitz at my uncle Lindsay's house where, in contrast to the stories narrated in both books, the smell of home cooked meals wetted the appetite and alerted you to the fact that for aunt Bevelyn, a housewife concerned with feeding her man in a land of freedom, opportunity and plenty for many, there was never any fear that she, nor he, nor any of us would ever be carted off, taken away to some prison camp or gulag, disappeared, and never be heard from, ever, again.

This was never supposed to happen here. Not since those early fall nights of baseball games on the high school grounds en route to Vicksburg where half the town rooted for one team and the other half rooted for the other team.

Not ever since those days when the screen door on aunt's Florence Mae farm house squeaked every time you went out to milk the cows or came back in from gathering eggs in the chicken coup, to the sitting on the grey wooden steps the night my mother died. This was never supposed to happen here.

But it has.

The Constitution, having been betrayed on October 17, 2006 by this man named George from the House of Bush ... is in great distress. The Constitution is dying.

This was not supposed to happen here that in America the Constitution should die from wounds inflicted to it by one of its own. This was not supposed to happen here that a man named George from the House of Bush should endeavor to suppress freedom of speech, or that Supreme Court Judges should choose to make ideology over the rule of law the dictum of the land.

This was also never supposed to happen here that an Attorney General so void of any self would one day serve as an arm-jerk rubber-stamper for sanctioning the crimes the House of Bush.

Or that a press seemingly dependent on the will of the House of Bush for the tenure of their offices or the collection of their salaries, or the Press dependent also on his will for the collection of their salaries should become so compliant in silencing truth and voicing the Bush propaganda.

This was not supposed to happen here, that this man named George from the House of Bush, whose journey along the shores and borders of this country is seemingly comprised by two opposing currents, should have the power to Distress the Constitution or to transport any of us beyond the seas to be tortured for imagined offenses, or deprive us of trial by jury. This was not supposed to happen here. But it has.

In the current-counter/current journey of this man named Bush, the surface level of his journey may have taken early on the guise a true American boy, Baseball fan, peanut butter snacks eater, good beer drinker as well, a frat boy with cheerleading abilities and a penchant for parties who learned in the deeper currents of his journey to admire power, political status, the money making side effects of munitions and wars, and the climb to the mountain top, not through peaceful means like Martin Luther King Jr., but through vote stealing and power-grabbing, fear mongering and fear planting like Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini and all the regular garden variety of dictators of the right.

Not much to go on here about a man whose life has been kept under the Walker-Bush secretive mantra, which provided him, on that deeper level of his journey, with a counter-current to the one followed by most All-American boys. One in direct opposition to his cheerleading, American apple pie, baseball fan All American boy image of his surface journey.

It was not supposed to happen like this... That, that blue caste boy from the House of Bush, whose parents had everything and gave him everything used every advantage his parents gave him to advance himself to the oval office, and then use it again to fence America inside of what he is beginning to display more and more with the passing time, his iron hand and the demise of America as we have known it.

This was never supposed to happen here, that a biological father-and former president at that, would one day proclaim, support and endorse with "every fiber of [his] being" the, "lying, cheating, murdering, ignoring [of] treaties, [the] breaking law after law, [the] overthrowing [of] the Constitution, and [the] waging illegal wars," committed by his son-but it has.
