Bush, Oil, and the plot to destroy my America while getting rich.

Bush, Oil
It’s amazing. I am speechless. Today is a new low for My America. I have just read and heard that the Democrats are responsible for oil’s sky high price. It is hard for me to even write the sentence without wanting to explode with the hypocracy. I keep looking on Drudgereport to see if Al Gore is being blamed by Osama for the proliferation of Madrassa’s. Does nobody understand the implications of drilling offshore and in Anwar. Let’s take away the environmental, tree hugger, global warming arguments and look at the facts. If drilling offshore or in Anwar were to get a green light as early as tomorrow, an impossibility, it would be years and years before any oil from these locations would hit the market. Furthermore, experts believe that these pipelines would reduce the cost of a gallon of oil by at most several pennies. Whooaaa, big %^&$ing deal.
Bush, oil
The only people who really want drilling to continue are the ones getting rich off it. Those groups are split into two camps. One camp lives in various desserts in the Middle East hiding from predator drones and the other camp lives in mansions right here in My America. That’s right, Washington/Dallas and any other enclave where the Haliburton/Republican/Chevron (Republiburton) people live/summer/drill. Isn’t it ironic.

America (Rome) is burning. Are those matches in your hand Mr. President?

Bush
I know all those crazy liberals have been talking about global warming for years now. Heck, Al Gore has reinvented himself as Mr. Green running hell bent around the globe preaching about the polar ice caps and the French Alps and some island that is sinking and all fifty inhabitants that have to move. They talk about some Spanish wind, something like El Nina. What’s the big deal if a couple of hot days are just a little hotter? Who cares if some coral turns white? Do I really care if some spitting frog goes extinct?
Here in Crawford, there’s only two things that matter. The price of beef and oil. I don’t give bull’s balls if some atoll in Indonesia or God knows where begins to sink a couple of inches. Look at Venice, it’s still there. I don’t hear Gore or Michael Moore talking about Venice sinking. As far as I am concerned, if it doesn’t affect the US of A, then it doesn’t affect Texas. And if it doesn’t affect Texas, then it doesn’t affect me.
Mr. President, Rome is burning and you appear to have matches in your hand.
Fire
Massive evacuations ordered in California.
The evidence is overwhelming.

Drought
Has it ever been this dry in the South East?

Bush has done everything in his power to promote big business (his friends) and in so doing lay the groundwork for destroying the environment. When will he/they learn?

From Thinkprogress.org:

Bush’s EPA Nominee Has Relaxed Rules For Polluters, Weakened Clean Air Legislation
William Wehrum, President Bush’s nominee to head the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation (OAR), has earned a reputation in Washington as “the behind-the-scenes architect” of some of the Bush administration’s most controversial initiatives. Some lowlights:

– Wehrum was a lead author of Bush’s “Clear Skies” legislation, which would have loosened emissions caps on dangerous airborne toxins.

– In 2002, while serving as OAR’s general counsel, Wehrum shepherded through a rule written by forest products industry lobbyists that relaxed the emission standards for formaldehyde. Wehrum had previously represented those same timber interests as a lobbyist.

– In 2004, Wehrum implemented new industry-friendly mercury guidelines that substantially weakened the Clean Air Act. Again, Wehrum’s former lobbying firm played an instrumental role in drafting the rule.

– Just this week, a draft of a new air pollution rule, drafted under the oversight of Wehrum, came under fire from congressional leaders. The proposal would allow polluters to discharge thousands of pounds of airborne toxins while “virtually avoiding regulation.“

“There are some monuments where the land is so widespread, they just encompass as much as possible. And the integral part of the – the precious part, so to speak, I guess all land is precious – but the part that the people uniformly would not want to spoil, will not be despoiled. But there are parts of the monument lands where we can explore without affecting the overall environment.”
— George Bush, March 13, 2001

Is the Iraqi embassy more fortified than my America? A billion dollars later.

Iraq embassy

Documents obtained by the Oversight Committee depict widespread defects in fire detection systems, fire service mains, fire sprinklers, fire-proof construction materials, and electrical wiring throughout the Embassy complex. Other documents implicate the Managing Partner of First Kuwaiti, the prime contractor, in an illegal kickback scheme to obtain subcontracts under the Army’s multi-billion logistical support contract.

Sounds like all the other news coming out of Iraq. This complex is over 100 acres (larger than the vatican), almost ten times the size of a normal embassy. More striking is its price tag. At more than a billion dollars and growing more expensive every day. Oddly, or with this administration obviously, a Kuwaiti firm won the construction deal despite very competing bids from US contractors. Read about this here. This colossal beast is emblematic of the ongoing disaster in Iraq and you can read an interesting article here about why this, like the war, is destined to fail from the start.

Everything surrounding this massive, super secret compound has been shrouded in secrecy. Diplomats were even instructed not to mention the location of the new embassy. (The fifty cranes along the banks of the Tigris might have given that one away) I wonder what the reaction was when the computer-generated projections of the heavily fortified compound were posted here on the Web several months ago.

Quote for today:
“I heard somebody say, ‘Where’s Mandela?’ Well, Mandela’s dead. Because Saddam killed all the Mandelas.” –George W. Bush, on the former South African president, who is still very much alive, Washington, D.C., Sept. 20, 2007

The Council for National Policy is hiding my America.

Thompson, Republican
Update #1 – Cheney goes on secret ultra conservative mission.
In following with the creepy theme, I thought I would send you some highlights of a group meeting secretly on my America’s soil since 1981.

Membership is by invitation only.
Members are instructed not to refer to the organization by name.
Members are powerful figures, from the Religious Right and the anti-government, anti-tax wing of the ultra-conservative movement.
It’s membership list reads like a who’s who of the Republican right and many of their speakers and members are linked to Bushie.
Some have called this group the most elite and powerful collection of Republican leaders in the country.
According to this article, “In addition to obsessing over communist threats and buttressing white supremacist ideology, the CNP has included many members bent on replacing American democracy with theocracy.”
Go to their website here and read about this “club” and their plans for my America. Be prepared to be scared.
Why Thompson’s picture? Well, he is running for President and happened to give the council’s keynote speech this Spring. Read it here.
Here is a list of past members.

Now “digg” this story to the right and then comment on this post below.

Greenspan drills Bush in my America.

Greenspan
Just a little weekend surprise. I wasn’t going to write this weekend, been busy on a script, but this is too good. After driving down interest rates to impossibly low levels and thus imploding our real estate market for the long term, Greenspan has decided to come clean about what really fueled some of the idiotic financial and more importantly foreign policy decisions during his tenure, focusing on the Iraq war. Because I am attempting to be brief I will highlight what he claims to be the driving force behind some of the most significant policy decisions made by the Bush administration. Unbelievably, but predictably, it can be summed up in one word, OIL. More here.

I think Big Oil might have stolen a piece of my America.

Oil rig
Is there anything more corrupt than big oil? They report record profits quarter after quarter and yet have enormous government subsidies. They shamelessly destroy the environment. They pollute the air we breathe. Were it not for our nations intense thirst, and our surprising inability to create a suitable substitute, we would not have been forced to go into foreign nations and create wars under false pretenses to try to satisfy said thirst. Our administration, who is personally rewarded for these conquests, has done nothing to rectify this horrible situation for my America.

What has big oil done that is so bad?

Ask this bird.

But someone must benefit, you ask?
They’re happy!
