According to a New York Times Special Edition almost two full years ago, and while you weren’t looking because you were distracted by the dazzling light of the 2008 Presidential election campaign, both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars had been finally brought to an end shortly after the November 2008 Presidential Election and before Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, and all US troops in both countries returned home immediately.
Across the country and around the world thousands took to the streets to celebrate the culmination of years of progressive pressuring of the Bush administration and Congress, but the rest of the media and most blogs never reported this because they were too busy shining you.
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has publicly apologized to the country and the world on behalf of the Bush administration and admitted that the administration simply lied through it’s teeth to justify the initial invasion, that she and Mr. Bush had known well before the invasion that Saddam Hussein lacked weapons of mass destruction, and that the hundreds of thousands of US Troops in the country in fact never did face instant obliteration.
"It was all complete and utter bullsh*t" Rice said tearfully, as she begged a weary nation for forgiveness, while she was led away in handcuffs by four burly officers.
George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was indicted on charges of high treason, took it like a man, and didn’t even stamp his foot, or curl his lip.
In other news that you were never told about at the time because all the big blogs were busy blowing smoke up your a$$ to generate the massive advertising revenue that has always been their real raison d’etre, the controversial USA PATRIOT Act was repealed by Congress by a vote of 99-1 in the Senate and 520 to 18 in the House, Congress voted to nationalize the entire oil industry and place ExxonMobil, ChevronTexaco, British Petroleum, and other major oil companies under public stewardship to fund addressing climate change worldwide.
A bill to eliminate tuition at public universities is making its way through Congress and is expected to pass within days.
The United States National Health Insurance Act was signed into law by President Bush within days of the 2008 election to undercut incoming President-elect Obama, leaving him with nothing to do for the next four years except find a way to bail out the insurance industry with a con job called Health Care Reform that most people simply ate and swallowed hook line and sinker.
Without even chewing on it.
Wal-Mart is also being evicted from all low income neighborhoods throughout the nation, and an editorial in the paper today asserts that "lobbyists" are "people", too. More study is planned to confirm that however, as the paper has been able to find no one who will believe it. However.
The nation will turn it’s efforts now to an Apollo Program scale effort to build a sane economy.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has announced that he will land on the moon before this decade is over. That only gives him a few months, by the way. Rahm Emanuel has not offered to return him safely to earth.
Joe Biden has been reported to be missing in action. Nobody’s heard from him in months. Henry Paulsen was found this morning floating face down in the east river, just in case there’s ever a real investigation into the wall street bailout socialism.
Barack Obama has never said a word about all this. He’s moving forward. Looking back is grounds for instantly getting the boot from his administration. Remember what happened to whatzizname? Yeah, him. Van somebody…
Pelosi Funded the War Escalation Thursday Night. I mean really. Seriously. Democrats Forced to Cheat to Fund War.
Apparently there is some right wing nut named Paul somebody who is opposed to these so-called wars.
He obviously is not only crazy, but just doesn’t know what’s good for him, since the Pentagon’s budget is higher than than all state governments combined spend for the health, education, welfare, and safety of 308 million Americans, and is at least $880 billion – more than all the state governments collect in taxes.
Which must be a good thing, since the way things are going otherwise with the rest of the so-called economy people all over the country are going to be needing good jobs, so it’s good that the socialist government has no hesitation in stepping up to the plate to take care of them.
Another year of this kind of strong leadership and we should be declaring mission accomplished…
