So many Bushisms, so little time

I kinda got behind on my blog this week and haven't had time get'r done.

Here are a few Bushisms from the past week.

Wednesday's Bushsim: "If you're a younger person, you ought to be asking members of Congress and the United States Senate and the president what you intend to do about it. If you see a train wreck coming, you ought to be saying, "What are you going to do about it, Mr. Congressman, or Madam Congressman?"
Detroit Michigan; February 8,2005

Thursday's Bushism: "First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren't necessaily killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn't mean you're willing to kill."

Washington D.C. may 19, 2003

Weekender Bushism: "The best way to relieve families from time is to let them keep some of thier own money."

Westminister, California; September 13,2000

What's appalling is not so much the mangled syntax is the lack of idealism. When has Bush, and to be fair, most modern day politicians, expressed a view of the world beyond the notion of "Free markets and tax cuts. When was the last time a politician expressed a view of the world that was beyond the bottomline, that was about what we could be, what we could aspire to? When is the last time a politician expressed a view that inspired us to move to the future? When did we all become so afraid of ideas and the debate they cause? What was the last great political quote? It's sad that we accept so little and our leaders aim so low. This is what happens when we keep electing managers.

Yeah, I paid my taxes today.

I coudn't agree with you more. It makes me sick that that we have politicians on both sides of the aisle taking baby steps at problems that need bold changes. This country needs sweeping changes. We need healthcare for all..period. In order to fuel American growth (not by building more fucking Wal-Marts) we need health care to be competitve. The tax system is a fucking joke. A flat tax is the only fair tax. Get rid of all the loop holes and write offs. The rich get richer and the poor suffer because the tax system is written for the wealthy. Global warming will kill us all and the fucking technology to do better and get off foreign oil has been around since the advent of the first car.

I don't know about a flat tax. 10 per cent on 15000 is a far greater burden than on a million. It was pointed out in the Globe and Mail, in big bold headlines, that the rich pay up to 50% of the countries (Canada) taxes. Rampant discussion of the need for tax breaks follows. No one points out that 5 per cent of the country owns over 85% of it's wealth which means they are already getting a tax break on 35%. So I'd start with the corporate welfare problem.

Um, I don't understand Kelli's comment? Is she refering to us as "Killers"?

Does this mean for the first time in my life I'm a "bad boy"? Cool!
