HOW THE GRINCH STOLE AMERICA



It is clear to me that our current administration, King George and Evil Dick, are in office for one reason, and one reason only. Greed.

Their “War of Terror “ as Borat called it, and rightly so, was never about making America more secure or free from nuclear threats or airplane flying suicide bombers.

We all now know that even before the crazies flew the planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the White House was at work on a plan to overthrow and replace the government in Iraq. The happenings on September 11th only made it easier to sell.

In the week prior to September 11th, 2001, Halliburton’s stock fell 44% and in July 2002 a share of Halliburton stock was going for less than nine dollars. Today Halliburton’s stock price has increased over 500% . That is quite a profit for King George and his friends.

I don’t have to remind anyone who was Halliburton’s CEO from 1995 to 2000, do I? None other than our Vice President, Evil Dick. He left Halliburton to head George W Bush’s vice presidential selection committee. Isn’t that a great story? I can see him telling little Georgie, ““Umm…I think you should nominate…umm.. ME… Yeah… I think I should be your vice president.”

While American families mourn the death of their children and middle income families pay for King George and Evil Dick’s Iraqi occupation for the next 25 years, they will leave office (not soon enough) with bags of cash.



In my mind I see them both dressed up like Dr. Suess’ Grinch on Christmas Eve…. sneaking down the chimney of every American home, robbing each house of all their cash (and everything else) and then trying to stuff their oversized bags back up the chimney.

Chris,

Interesting metaphor; using the GRINCH. I was cracking up! I think most politicians go into any election with good intentions. I never voted for GWB, but there was still hope that the fire of the human spirit would ignite within someone to do good in the world; GWB will never understand this step in the game of life. There are so many players; religious, political, business, and even nonprofit that have control over the course of a government. When these politicians allow this “control” to manifest and take over their vision, they truly have lost sight of the objective. Creating a fiscally sound nation; that assists not only other countries, but our own as well within many social and economic arenas.

It does boil down to greed. Whether it is financial, political, or even the sense of attaining great power. Greed covers many facets of control. Unfortunately; our current President and entities connected with him have lost sight of who they represent. It is a sad wound upon our country that will be reflected forever in history, when GWB’s administration turned a deaf ear upon the constituents as a whole in steering the U.S. into a path of SHAME on many levels.
