Since his inauguration, George W. Bush has run up the national debt more than $2 trillion. Between February 1st and March 10th, a matter of 38 days, hes added another $124 billion to our tab. All while telling us that things are getting better.
Hey, Donald Duck would think things are getting better with that sort of loot rolling in. And it doesnt even count the $71 billion steadily coming again this year from Social Security overcharges.
Do you think it bothers George Bush? He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Hes probably never done an honest days work in his life. And once his public service is over hell be back living in the lap of luxury, counting his money, buying sports teams, and smirking his head off. Probably while endorsing HillBillary or Condoleezza Rice to succeed him on the throne.
And where will you and your children be? Well, your children will probably be getting ready to follow Israel into Iran and Syria to find more oil and establish more military bases on the way to China. Many will be dead or dying from depleted uranium poisoning thats overtaxing the Veterans Hospitals from the first dirty bomb nuclear waste attack on Iraq or the hapless troops that are still using and exposed to the same million year life span illegal poisons today. Weve surged from a five percent casualty rate in the World Wars to a 53 percent casualty rate in the Gulf Wars and doctors are calling DU poisoning an eventual death sentence even if it doesnt immediately kill our troops on the battlefield.
Fly those flags and paste those magnetic support our troops ribbons on your cars while the government cuts funding for veteran care, first responders, education, and just about everything else in discretionary spending. All while about to sign new bankruptcy laws that protect credit card companies and allow returning soldiers to continue payments on their homes even though the bank has foreclosed on them. After all, its important to keep credit companies strong. Bush believes in credit.
Meanwhile, the world is turning against us, economists are predicting the perfect storm of global factors working against us, and nations whove extended us trillions in credit are warning that we better get our financial house in order.
Does this bother Bush? Not a wit.
He continues borrowing, continues taking our retirement money to blow on more aggression, plans a $2.5 trillion budget when last year's receipts were less than $1.9 trillion, and promises a much stronger dialogue with the rest of the world.
hell retire, go back to the ranch and build his final echo chamber.
Step right up folks; its only a dime, the thin part of a dollar.
Tour the Coliseum dedicated to the Counterfeit Cowboy from Crawford. Hunt
for Weapons of Mass Destruction. Go through the vaults looking for your
retirement money. Is it under here? How about over there? Look under that
ten gallon hat. When you think you may be on the trail, youre in
a dark passage to the Black Hole of Debt. Get your wallets and checkbooks
out. Isnt it wonderful? God bless America.
