Dying vet’s ‘fuck you’ letter to George Bush & Dick Cheney needs to be read by every American | Dangerous Minds


To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young

… You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. …

On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11.

Obama’s and Bush’s effects on the deficit in one graph – Ezra Klein – The Washington Post


What’s also important, but not evident, on this chart is that Obama’s major expenses were temporary — the stimulus is over now — while Bush’s were, effectively, recurring. The Bush tax cuts didn’t just lower revenue for 10 years. It’s clear now that they lowered it indefinitely, which means this chart is understating their true cost. Similarly, the Medicare drug benefit is costing money on perpetuity, not just for two or three years. And Boehner, Ryan and others voted for these laws and, in some cases, helped to craft and pass them.

To relate this specifically to the debt-ceiling debate, we’re not raising the debt ceiling because of the new policies passed in the past two years. We’re raising the debt ceiling because of the accumulated effect of policies passed in recent decades, many of them under Republicans. It’s convenient for whichever side isn’t in power, or wasn’t recently in power, to blame the debt ceiling on the other party. But it isn’t true.

Think Progress » Presidential scholars: Bush is the worst president of the modern era, bottom five of all time.

This year’s poll of 238 scholars found that President Franklin Roosevelt was once again ranked on top, joined by Presidents Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington, and Teddy Roosevelt to complete the top five. However, President George W. Bush did not fare well since the last poll was conducted in 2002. He dropped 16 places to 39th, making him the worst president since Warren Harding died in office in 1923, and one of the bottom five of all time, according to the experts:

Today, just one year after leaving office, the former president [DUHbya – spit on the ground] has found himself in the bottom five at 39th rated especially poorly in handling the economy, communication, ability to compromise, foreign policy accomplishments and intelligence. Rounding out the bottom five are four presidents that have held that dubious distinction each time the survey has been conducted: Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding, and Franklin Pierce.

Bush was rated second from the bottom on “intelligence,” “foreign policy
accomplishments,” and “handling of U.S. economy.” [mjh: Good gawd, I pity the fool dumber than Duhbya.] …

President Reagan “dropped two places from 16th overall in 2002 to 18th today.” President Obama was ranked 15th. [mjh: IE, higher than Raygun.]

Wow.

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil." – Saruh Palin

A system that raises such an ignorant person to such prominence is downright stupid.

PS: I’m adding a new category under NADA (New American Dark Ages) called “Dump Saruh” (an homage to Dump Duhbya).

Good riddance to Duhbya and BushCo, the board of AmeriCo. Good goddamn riddance to every damn one of them. For generations, people will spit on the ground at the mention of George Duhbya Bush.

I expect this to be the last entry in the Dump Duhbya category, unless Republicans are crazy enough to nominate Sarah Failin’. In that case, for continuity, I’ll just put her in the same category. They are two peas in a pod.

A special Fuck You to Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, the twin Princes of Darkness. I’d pay the airfare to send them both to Abu Ghraib or Gitmo. And for an extra slippery bathmat for Grover Nordquist.

I’m amazed at the gall of the right-wing lecturers who dare to offer any advice without prefacing it with, “We were wrong…” You *were* wrong — horribly, royally, monstrously wrong. Your repeated mistakes — coupled with an amazing swagger — have brought this nation to a new low. So, admit that first or shut the fuck up for a few years. peace, mjh

Our democracy is based on the principle of consent through compromise. When the pendulum swings too far left or right many unfavorable circumstances come to be. …

In our state most of the tax paying producers are on the right while most of our government social programs favor the left. … [mjh: I pay taxes, as do all my leftist friends. None of us receives corporate welfare.]

In past years we could count on an unbiased, balanced news media to step in and energize the public to force fairness in government! Now the media cannot be trusted to exercise their constitutional mandates because a majority of their members have chosen partisanship over honesty.

So, the media was trustworthy when it was bullied liked the rest of the nation by the Texas Tyrant? You’ve still got FOX, Donny, and Lush Limbaugh, ad nauseum.
