State of the Union, Part I

I watched the President’s state of the union address because I knew you weren’t going to. I took notes too. I expected to write an analysis - what he said, what it means, what was true, what was obfuscation - but with a few exceptions, it was the usual shite. He brought up September 11 in the third minute of the address, and mentioned WMDs in the very next sentence. Blah, blah, America must lead the world, blah, blah, secure homeland, I didn’t break the law, and generic euphemisms for American imperialism.

One of those euphemisms was “isolationist.” I wish I had counted the number of times he used it Tuesday night. According to our President, an isolationist is: a citizen who opposes grossly unbalanced trade agreements; someone who recognizes the current foreign policy as imperialism and opposes an American empire; someone who wants to bring the troops home; anyone who advocates tighter border control to stop illegal immigration.

I’m not exaggerating on that last one, kids. If you’d like to see fewer illegal immigrants in the States, if you don’t like it when the Mexican army threatens US law enforcement officers on US soil with HUMVEE mounted .50 caliber machine guns in order to help drug lords get their wares across, if you’d rather Wal*Mart employ legal US citizens than illegals... then take your stars and stripes sticker off your pick-up, liberal, because YOU are an unpatriotic ISOLATIONIST.

He brought up that tired old sentiment that the world hates us for our freedom, specifically saying, “We love our freedom, and we will fight to keep it.” Of course we do, and yes we will, but threats to our freedom lie in places like China, Iran, DPRK, and of course, Afghanistan, not in Iraq. Not in Cuba. Not in Venezuela.

He brought up a situation the long-time reader will recognize as a pet concern of mine - Zimbabwe, actually referring to it by name. But only because Mugabe, Zim’s dictator, is claiming to have uranium deposits and is trading with China and talking to DPRK. Regardless, I wrote “Bully on him!” next to that entry in my notes.

The best though, was when he started talking about cloning. It deserves a post all its own, and will get that in Part II.

Jackson Pollock: derived from an artistic style used by Pollock, while your victim is sleeping, you masturbate sporadically all over his or her face and upper extremities; thus creating a form of art similar to that of Jackson Pollock. Upon completion, a photograph is taken as proof.

Though he had his digital camera with him, Voodoo knew that Jackson Pollocking MissAnnThrope was a very bad idea.

I watched every second of it.

Cloning had me off my butt, gesturing excitedly.

I watched it, and I was considering writing something that went point to point, but it would end up being massively long.

I was in the laundromat, screaming at the screen so much, I chased the other person in there out. I was thoroughly pissed at his little support the troops ploy, having the family of a soldier killed in Iraq in the audience. Talking about supporting our troops, but refusing to acknowledge the need for body armor, or how we all know that kid would still be alive if he had been wearing it.

I did love the way he almost lost it when the Democrats stood and clapped when he mentioned Social Security. The man almost lost his cool and definitely lost any rhythm he had going. It was a wonderful moment.

I was also pissed when he went on about cloning and how human life is sacred. If human life is so fucking sacred, why are they not getting body armor on our troops? Oh, you might also want to do a little looking into his plans for Medicare. Human life is valuable, unless you're poor.

God, why is this man still president?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. You're so right it wouldn't be a good idea to pull a Jackson Pollack on me.

One of my favorite parts was when he started talking about how the rate of abortion and teen pregnancy had gone down...but in the last 12 years. That means it started during (that pervert) Clinton's administration. Of course it may be because they're all out having oral sex right now.

My friends and I had talked about it at lunch the day before the speech. It was pretty much what we predicted he'd say. So really there was almost no reason for me to watch.

Thank you for the information on this post..I should note on my profile that I am a ISOLATIONIST. I agree with Ann, why is he still president? This is scary!

I've gotta be honest - I didn't watch it. I have reached the train wreck point in time where I have to look away. This is the worst I've felt about our government in my entire life.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

safereturns - are we not men?

MissAnnThrope - I Tivo'd the whole thing and went to that part after reading your comment. Then I watched it in slow motion. Precious.

hourglasses - no, it means abstinence is working. And... maybe a little butt-sex.

caressmewell - why is he still President? I dunno... GA went red, as your neighbors. But don't blame me, I voted for Gary Bauer.

[blog 1hotwahine] - is it really worse than Nixon?

emerald6912 - thank you.

mischief_00 - the only notes I have that I didn't touch upon in my post were about the members of the Court that were there. I wondered why they were there, why they were in their robes, and also about how Alito looked like he had a case of "bright lights, big city."

In another five years, I epect we'll be able to email Tivo files to each other, but that can't help you now.

mm0206 - thank you, you're very kind. But would you still feel that way if I told you that of all likely candidates, I'm leaning toward McCain?

voodoo..interesting observations.... i suspect their puppetteers put the word "isolationist" in his mouth, to make a not very subtle link with the so-called "anti-globalisation" forces.......
