Something is becoming more and more apparent to me. The implementation of the stimulus plan is being disabled by former president Bush appointees still within the federal bureaucracy. They are doing it with a prodigious amount of red tape and delay tactics to keep these much needed funds out of the economy.
This effort has one goal, to discredit Obama’s stimulus program by forcing local economies into a sharper decline. Unless this stonewalling by Bush appointees is stopped, our economy will just get worse. We have to remove ALL Bush appointees and their second-level cronies from office NOW.
Do you know how many former Bush administration officials have been sentenced with jail time? The answer is eight! here is the list (so far):
Felipe Sixto, special assistant to President Bush for intergovernmental affairs. He pled guilty to embezzling $600,000 from the Center for a Free Cuba, a government-funded program and received a 30-month prison sentence.
Scooter Libby, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief-of-staff. He was sentenced to 30 months for his role in the leaking and coverup of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity to the press. President Bush quickly commuted the sentence. How nice of him!
Brian Doyle, Deputy Press Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, was sentenced to five years in jail for attempting to use a computer to seduce a child.
Dusty Fago, Executive director of the CIA, received a three year prison sentence on corruption charges.
David Safavian, General Services Administration Chief-of-Staff and head procurement official went to prison for 18 months on charges related to the Jack Abramoff lobbyist scandal.
Italia Federici, political aide to Secretary of the Interior, Gail Norton, received a two month sentence in a halfway house for obstructing the Senate investigation into Abramoff and for tax evasion.
Steven Griles, who was the number two official at the Interior Department, also received 10 months in jail for his part in the Abramoff scandal.
Bob Stein, the Comptroller of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, received the longest sentence of any Bush official (as of yet) – 9 years in prison for money laundering, conspiracy and bribery.
This is not counting all the other convictions that didn‘t result in jail time and all the other investigations.
This just in: George Bush has just announced a State of National Emergency and has appointed himself Emperor of A’merica.
This action is due to the failure of the war on terror, faith based initiatives, and no child left behind. Standing along with our new exalted leader during the announcement were Cheney, Gonzalez, Chertoff, Bolton, Rice, Card, Palin, Rumsfeld, Fleischer, McClellan, Snow, Rove, Roberts, Miers, Ridge, Ashcroft, Paulson, and DeLay.
Emperor Bush has declared martial law and directed the joint chiefs of staff to initiate operation “drop your pants” where all Americans will get an identity chip imbedded up their ass. All who refuse will be shot on the spot. Also, by decree the inauguration of that “Boy from Hawaii” is canceled just like all the election results, nation-wide.
When asked by a reporter how this can be legal he responded “Cause I’m the decider. Now drop your pants!”
P.S. it could happen, he still has one more day!
In naval shipbuilding there is something called a “Naming Convention.” It is a set of rules that specifies that certain types of ships be named a certain way. For example a Frigate is named for a naval or marine hero. Aircraft Carriers were named after either famous battles like Lexington, or other famous ships from the navy’s history like the Enterprise. But some republican back during Nixon days decided it was best to name them after politicians. That man is Senator John Warner.
He was instrumental in naming one of the new Nimitz class aircraft carriers in honor of former Georgia Representative Carl Vinson. It was the also first Navy ship to be named for someone still living.
That’s right, before this if you had a ship named after you… you had to be DEAD! Then he did it again with the “U.S.S. Ronald Regan” and now it’s the “U.S.S. George Herbert Walker Bush” the one term hero that liberated Kuwait’s oil fields. Woo Hoo! So who signed the approval to name the ship? Of course his son, King Shrub.
When Teddy Roosevelt formalized the naming convention for naval ships the requirement to be DEAD was really important. Ego, political “pay to play,” and general ass kissing was pretty much eliminated since the person being honored was already DEAD. Word is out that John Warner will have a submarine named after him soon. This is the Shrub’s way of thanking him for all he did to have the biggest warship in the world named after his dad. This pitiful display is all about the enormous ego of politicians that think they are god’s gift to man.
But when you think about it why stop at naming a ship after you? Let’s start renaming some of the states. There is a Washington, right?
OK, so the “official” Bush portraits were unveiled today. What great works of art! So where did the shrub’s legs go? and why is that flower vase on the back of the couch? Don’t they know it will fucking fall if he leans back? and where is his brown shirt?
Now all I need is a portrate that excentuates the bitch’s boobs. Oh, look, my wish has come true!
George W. Bush’s armed phalanx of security goons did a piss-poor job of defending the President from the terrible threat of shoes the other day. Ever since the shoe bomber incident of 2001, every moran in America has known what a dangerous weapon a simple human foot-covering can be. So why did security screeners not notice an Iraqi journalist wearing these shoe-like objects that were, in fact, shoes?
More to the point, why did Secret Service agents not shoot that guy to death repeatedly? That is the normal protocol, to draw your gun and start blammin’ away if anybody looks at your President sideways.
The answer, of course, is that everybody is just so tired and bored of Bush that they were all just like, “Oh blah blah blah, look another Iraqi hates George Bush and is screaming while hurling objects at him, guess I’ll go play my XBox now.”
I LOVE this poll by Pew Research – One word description for Bush
“The single word most frequently associated with George W. Bush today is “incompetent,”and close behind are two other increasingly mentioned descriptors: “idiot” and “liar.” All three are mentioned far more often today than a year ago.”
LANGLEY, VA—An internal CIA investigation into the possible use of illegal and inhumane interrogation techniques produced a confession from CIA director Porter Goss Monday, with the aid of waterboarding, food and light deprivation, and the application of wire hangers hooked to a car battery to the testicles. “I did it. We did it. We all did it. The president knew. The president did it. Please, God, please stop,” said a voice identified as Goss’ on recordings produced by CIA auditors. “Stop, please stop. I’m sorry. I won’t do it again. The president won’t do it again. Please let me die.” Critics of the methods used to obtain the information continue to claim that torture is an ineffective means of obtaining intelligence, pointing out that Goss did not sound sorry.
