would it be by definition immoral, since by definition everything that comes out of his mouth is immoral, a lie, or a combination thereof? (220.127.116.11 23:29, 15 April 2008 (UTC), will get screenname latter)
Sad state of affairsEdit
Bush's Observance of Jefferson's BirthdayEdit
I can't possibly be the only person that finds this to be not only repulsive but bordering on the worst bit of public sarcasm and shameless narcism that surpasses anything that Richard Nixon ever did.
How dare this man who has done everything within his power to reverse nearly everything of value that has taken this government 221 years to accomplish invoke Jefferson's name - from torture to eavesdropping, from vote caging to setting up networks of gauleiters surreptitiously fronting themselves as Federal "judges" in a phony remake of the Department of Justice; from "signing statements" in the context of a revisionary "Unitary Executive" oligarchy to preemptive war and social engineering in the guise of "faith-based" double-speak, the banality of this man and his political affiliations knows no bounds. Very nearly every single thing that this man has done has been contrary to everything that Thomas Jefferson stood for as an enlightened man of faith and a human being.
By Bush's every action he has lent aid and comfort to our enemies by giving them a proving ground to advance their combat training; and in so doing has assisted them in realizing their ultimate goal of destroying this country by bankrupting it in the pursuit of endless wars.
Mr. Bush's contempt for the Constitution is well-demonstrated by his deeds; his total ignorance of the content of the Declaration of Independence is even more blatant; for contained in that document by Jefferson's own hand reads the following line: "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new Guards for their future."
May the people who helped this man achieve the unthinkable - the castration of the United States of America - experience the same fate as those who supported the Tories during the Revolutionary War. And good riddance.
