More Bush Non-Sense

| | Comments (0)

The President is hitting the airwaves with the most stupid and illogical statements yet. Let's examine a few.

1) President Bush said on Wednesday terrorists had converged on Iraq. Duh! Is this news? Did this just happen? Is anyone briefing the President on the fact that terrorists have been coming into Iraq since we declared Victory there? Now, Mr. President, have all the terrorists converged on Iraq? Is it a convention? Apparently not, since London has some terrorists who decided not to show up in Iraq. Turkey has a few who decided not to attend. Egypt has quite a few who aren't converging. Malaysian terrorists apparently declined the invitation. Austrailia is on to a few who chose not to come. And our own government says there are cells here in the USA who apparently have not been drawn like moths to flame to the convergence on Iraq.

Hosts of millions supported the Nobel Peace Prizes awarded to convicted terrorist Nelson Mendella of S. Africa, and Menachem Begin of Israel who helped blow up the Hotel King David in 1946. Both began their adult lives engaged in activities we regard today as terrorist, blowing up, or otherwise conspiring to kill bystanders at their designated targets. Are these men heroes or terrorists? Or, were they terrorists who later became heroes of Peace? Each was engaged in a struggle they deemed worthy of killing for. In the minds of supporters of al-Queda, perhaps Osama bin Laden may be a Nobel Peace Prize candidate in 20 years.

The Greeks wrote a play called Lysistrata. Mrs. Sheehan, camped out on our President's doorstep in Crawford, Texas is a shining example of Lysistrata's playwright's intent centuries ago. Lysistrata speaks of what the world could be if women simply refused to give men their penis measuring wars by withholding their sublime pleasures until men listened to the wisdom of motherhood.

A Snapshot of the Future

I follow the markets, since I manage my wife's 401K. I just took a look at the stock market indexes around the world and saw a picture of the future.

All European stocks down save Norway. All Asian Pacific stocks up, handsomely. Canadian stocks up. S. American stocks mixed. US stocks not moving.
