I tried. I really did.
Tried to ignore what this petulant jackass of a "leader" we have been saddled with has spoken about and has done (or has planned) for this weekend. For today. You know, the day that we should be celebrating the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence but in sad reality, the abuses that led to the drafting of the Declaration of Independence are just as bad today, thanks to this lying war criminal of a loser that is in the White House now.
But I couldn't just leave well enough alone. I had to read Bush's radio address from this weekend and hear how this draft dodging chickenshit who went AWOL is going to be spending part of today at Fort Bragg, with soldiers that are being sent into harm's way to fight for lies and greed.
This from a man whose entire administration has been about shitting on the very documents that our founders drafted and that are so vital to what defines this country. And you know what Georgieboy? You have some fucking nerve even showing your smirking face ANYWHERE today, let alone with our troops.
Do you remember this comment you made at the start of your presidency? You know, the one where you so cleverly wished to be a dictator? I think it went something like this:
"I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don't agree with each other, but that's OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator,"
Pretty fucking funny, huh? Funny that the word "dictator" isn't really the American way. Funny how you throw it around to refer to other "evil regimes" that must be stopped. Jackass.
And what about the speech you made the other day in anticipation of the celebration of this democracy-on-the-brink? What fucking gall you have to even mention the patriots, the ideals and the ones who put their all into making sure that this country wouldn't turn into the total fucking disaster that you so easily made it. Where the hell do you get off even thinking of disgracing our troops with this comment:
I'm looking forward to spending Independence Day with members of our Armed Forces and their families at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. These brave men and women risk their lives to defend the ideals of our founding generation, and I will have the honor of thanking many of them personally for their service in freedom's cause.
Exactly what "ideals" are being defended? What fucking planet are you on in thinking that the arrogance, lies and greed that you have displayed are ideals shown by George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton or any of the others? Just when did you step up to defend any ideals? Let's face it, you couldn't even be their piss boy, let alone be compared to them as far as "defending ideals and freedoms".
If I recall, you ran like a scared whiny brat to get the hell out of Dodge as quickly as possible when duty called your sorry ass. And what part of "freedom's cause" means "killing and bombing innocent people in a sovereign country that you illegally invaded while bankrupting the country and ignoring everyone but the most wealthy"? I bet that many of those families that you are personally thanking have something other than "you're very welcome" in mind to say back to you.
As for this little "gem" of a comment:
On Independence Day, we recall the courage and high ideals of our Nation's founders, who waged a desperate fight to overcome tyranny and live in freedom. Recent years have brought a renewed interest in the lives and achievements of our founders, and we have learned once again that they possessed extraordinary talents, as well as ordinary human failings, which only makes their accomplishments all the more remarkable.
Do you really think that if any of our Nation's founders would have the chance to meet you that they wouldn't smack the taste out of your mouth for your insincere smirking and simpleton arrogance? That they would have ANYTHING at all to really say to you with your complete lack of interest in anything other than yourself? Your complete and utter incompetence at EVERY stage of your life. At EVERYTHING you ever touched. Do you really think that they would even give you a second look with your complete lack of command of the English language and inability to string two sentences together? Give me a fucking break, you insignificant twit.
And this quote:
On the 4th of July we also honor the sacrifices made by each American generation to secure the promises of the Declaration of Independence. For more than two centuries, from the camps of Valley Forge, to the mountains of Afghanistan, Americans have served and sacrificed for the principles of our founding.
Today, a new generation of American patriots is defending our freedom against determined and ruthless enemies. At this hour, the men and women of our Armed Forces are facing danger in distant places, carrying out their missions with all the skill and honor we expect of them. And their families are enduring long separations from their loved ones with great courage and dignity.
How much time do you TRULY spend honoring the sacrifices made by anyone? Hell, you haven't even gone to a military funeral. You wouldn't even take time off from your 6th friggin month long vacation to meet with Cindy Sheehan. When you were warned about the Gulf Coast drowning from the hurricane that you ignored in the first place, you ate cake with John McCain, promoted the failure of social security privatization and had to be briefed by a DVD and took nearly a week to even address the problems. Did you spend any time thinking of those who were facing danger in New Orleans? Or the ones that you sent to Iraq based on lies?
So please, do us all a favor. Just shut the fuck up today. Especially today. We should be celebrating the birth of a document and a nation whose ideals have stood for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Instead, we are forced to be reminded of the willful destruction of the very ideals that this country and the Declaration of Independence were based on.
And for that, I say to you, from the bottom of my heart, "fuck off. Please."
