State of the Union

It seems fairly obvious that there is no hope for the Republican Party come November. They will lose the house and they will lose the senate, leaving them only in charge of the White House and Supreme Court.

Even though gas prices fell drastically, the future is bleak for the elephant. The whole Mark Foley deal, Dennis Hastert refusing to resign, U.S. military deaths in Iraq surpassing those in 9/11, both wars going badly, a national debt of over 8.5 trillion dollars, a budget deficit of about 250 billion dollars, the colossal fuck up of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and gas prices creeping back up all doomed the GOP.

So, what to look forward to in the 2nd half of the second term? Nothing. Congress will put forward legislation requesting better equipment for the troops, a withdrawal plan from Iraq and Afghanistan, putting a cap on gas prices, new disaster response techniques and training, and the President will veto them all. And then when the legislation goes back to Congress, it’ll fall 5 votes short of the 2/3 majority needed to override a veto, and the country will basically be at a standstill for the next two years.

I suppose leaving the clog alone is better than stuffing more shit down the toilet.

Oh well, we’ll just have to wait until 2008 to see any real action taken on providing solutions to the plethora of problems eating the country from the inside out. And then in 15 years or so, the Democrats’ll fuck up, and the Republicans get back in and we start the cycle over again.

Whoopee.

It’s entirely possible that if the Dems take back the House and the Senate that Bush will be impeached before 2008. He’s certainly done enough to warrant it.

If you haven’t read the interview of Arianna Huffington in the current Playboy, you oughtta. Seriously. Don’t just look at the pictures.

If they do impeach him, I think it’ll be like the Johnson impeachment, one vote short of kicking him out.

And no one here gets Playboy, although my brother might.

I agree that in the next two years there will be no progress. And that things look bad for the Republicans right now. But watch how they’ll use some misdirection technique and slide quietly out the back door.

Oh and I don’t like Playboy, with them flat ass chics! Yuk! I like dem big booty girls that make it CLAP!

It’ll be a reapeat of Clinton’s term. Nothing got done except a bit in education. Maybe with nothing happening we can have a bit of a return to normalcy here. The debt will go down a bit. We can work on creating jobs. The only thing foreign-ish that anything’ll happen about is immigration. The compromise will be that all mexicans have to get jobsbut there will be some sort of limit.


Like the new image?

I do not believe that it is a safe bet to count the GOP out just yet. Never overestimate the intelligence of a large group of people.

How can Bush be expected to worry about trivial matters such as gas prices and unnecessary deaths in Iraq? He is far too busy trying to overturn the entire Constitution. For OUR safety, of course …

“Naturally, the common people don’t want war, but after all it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and its always a simple matter to drag the people along… All you have to do is tell them they’re being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism. It works the same in every country.”

What about all the GOOD things the Nazis did?

Public works projects

(burn some fucking jews)

Education reforms

(burn some fucking Gypsies)


Ehh…

But you’ll HAVE to admit the country was far better off in 1946, after more than a decaded of Nazi dominance …

Hermann meant well. Especially to England.

I’m sure George Bush would say he means well also. That’s the beauty of being a delusional fuckhead.

Nazi scientists and doctors were miles above the fray when it came to cancer research and prevention. The Nazis conducted the most aggressive anti-smoking campaign in modern history. Hitler’s government passed a wide range of public health measures, including restrictions on asbestos, radiation, pesticides, and food dyes. Nazi health officials introduced strict occupational health and safety standards, and promoted such foods as whole-grain bread and soybeans. These policies went hand in hand with health propaganda that, for example, idealized the Fuhrers body and his nonsmoking, vegetarian lifestyle. It is also theorized that Hitler was consumed with the idea of cancer prevention as his mother had died of breast cancer.

WAKE THE FUCK UP THOMAS!!!!

Yeah, that’s what I like about the Nazi story. They were going to legislate “wholesome goodness” for the population. Meanwhile they were going to commit the most heinous crimes against humanity in human memory.

That’s why I’m always suspicious of motherfuckers trying to legislate wholesome goodness.

Well isn’t this magnificent? A post about U.S. Politics turned into a discussion about Nazi Germany! Only on The Tome of Communism!

At the risk of being labled a Jew hating Nazi, it is a shame that people so easily forget the good things the Nazis did.
