Robert Wolf on a rant
President Bush reminds one of the wizard of oz
doing it all with smoke and mirrors.
do we get tired of the bullshit?
When are our families, cities and countries
worth fighting for?
I am prepared to take back the reins on my life from God. I am prepared
for the President of the United States to stop treating us like the
fool he so sadly is. Patriotic references to bad things dont make
them less bad, they just buy you time. Eventually though, we expect
results or at least an attempt by you to meet the promises you made
to get elected.
Show me the love, show me that bipartisan approach that worked so well
in Texas. Brag some more about that school system that ran so efficiently
when minority students were eliminated from the equation. Trust us,
tell us the truth and let us help to govern. Politics has become a game,
and one in which the citizens dont get to play, let alone watch.
The news is staged as the mother of all reality shows. We need to know
whats happening and we need facts uncensored by the networks and
the government. Im not so impressed with Ashcroft that I trust
his judgment as to whats good for me anymore than Id want
a church or synagogue deciding what books to read or what art is proper.
Religion has no place in the White House. When youre the President,
you are governing all people and not just the ones just like you. President
Bush reminds one of the wizard of oz, doing it all with
smoke and mirrors. Its said theres nothing like honesty
and in Bushs case there is nothing like honesty in the entire
White House. His bloopers could fill The Comedy Channel for days. Hes
reading someone elses words and they will never sound sincere
because theyre not. Hes a bit player in a part way over
his head, a small time daddys boy who you wouldnt want to
date your sister, a trained animal whose appearances have been better
choreographed than either Fred Astaire or Ginger Rodgers.
The man and his associates continuously provide their corporate friends
with get out of jail freecards affording contributors access
and favors. Bush seems never to have met a conservative religious leader
he didnt like, no matter how hateful or crooked. Compassionate
conservatism disappeared from this administration almost as fast as
the Kyoto Agreement. How much proof does the White House and their band
of merry energy whores need to acknowledge weve got a warming
problem? How much of the north pole has to flow south as melting ice
to prove maybe we dont need further study, just action. You damn
hypocrite, youd risk the welfare of the world not to piss off
yours and Cheyneys energy friends. Until you run this country
for all Americans and not the lucky few, youll only be their president
If God was still around and wanted to stop the worldwide slaughter perpetuated
in his name, hed stop it. He or she is AWOL and no one is really
busy looking for them. We recite the same prayers as we have since childhood
over and over again but nothing happens. Do we somehow feel empowered
by chanting prayers we dont necessarily believe in, to someone
were not sure exists? Not if we have a brain and we use it.
Which religion doesnt matter. Any religion that teaches other
than love, that preaches hate and arrogance needs to be recognized for
what it is; dangerous. The churches need to hold religious leaders accountable
for what they preach and practice. Have balls enough to cull the bad
ones before they do the type of harm that lasts a lifetime.
If heaven is the reward we get for passing
some cosmic life test, Ill opt for door number two. Ill
chances that the threat of hell and damnation are as real as the rantings
old men who wrote stories in books that were told are gospel.
God, maybe its time to throw in the towel and start this universe
experiment again. You couldnt do any worse.
