The Saga Continues…
Dirty Politics PART II
By Nevin Jefferson
After The 8 Years of being Bush-Whacked by the Bush/Cheney Disaster, You the Un-American Pubic finally get pissed then piss on the wrong Political Party! Okay,let’s look back at everything that you,The Un-American Public turned a blind eye to. The time to get pissed was when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President. Clarence Thomas, of all people showed his true to the core Uncle TOM-NESS with his quick decision to pull off this “Vote Fraud” farce that began the screw of the nation part I of 8 years. Did you notice that no White Supreme Court Judge was near this Dirty Political ploy that killed people. This was the beginning of the new Hitler who took away the majority of the Help Agencies and Assistance to those in need for their lively hood, health, and money. He took away the sole income of families, disabled, elderly,and retired.
The time to get pissed was when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq. Along with Follow the Idiot! That became the nation’s greatest game to play while being played. “Countries that went out to play with Dick and George were;Albania, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. Countries that refused to join The Multinational Forces were called supporters of Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction. Countries that refused to join called The Burning Bush “The New Adolph Hilter” with the rest of the World hating; the United States with a passion. It wasn’t pretty overseas for our troop who stopped off in different countries being welcome with protest signs.
The time to get pissed was when a covert CIA operative got ousted with both of her cover and career was destroyed. CIA operative Valerie Plame was the spy left out in the cold and snowed by her own Government. Valerie Plame said that Karl Rove was “clearly involved” in the leak, and she called President Bush out for protecting Rove despite Bush’s pledge that he would “immediately dismiss anyone who had anything to do with this.” She calmly and eloquently critiqued the “creeping, insidious politicizing” of American intelligence and warned that this trend would prove to be disastrous for the nation. Not one eyebrow was raised over this back stabbing, two-faced, cruelty from a United States President.
The time to get pissed was when the Patriot Act got passed. The Act dramatically reduced restrictions on law enforcement agencies’ ability to search telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records; eased restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; expanded the Secertary Of Treasurey’s authority to regulate financial transactions, particularly those involving foreign individuals and entities; and broadened the discretion of law enforcement and immigration authorities in detaining and deporting immigrants suspected of terrorism-related acts. The act also expanded the definition of terrorism to include domestic terrorism, thus enlarging the number of activities to which the USA PATRIOT Act’s expanded law enforcement powers could be applied. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court delivered a mixed verdict relative to this case 03-6696 Hamdi v. Rumsfeld in that it was ruled that the U.S. government has the power to hold American citizens and foreign nationals without charges or trial, but that detainees can challenge their treatment in U.S. courts.
The time to get pissed was when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. The Mass Weapons of Destruction were the Oil Drills that belonged to Halliburton Inc. A Fortune 500 company that Dick Cheney was and still is Chief Executive Officer. Under the new leadership of the new Adolph Hitler our great nation was bombed as a ploy to start a war in Iraq. A senseless war with people dying and the torturing of Human beings became a sport.
The time to get pissed was Bush and Cheney spent over 800 billion and counting on said illegal war. If you read Section 3, paragraph B, Bush was required to prove to the Congress that Iraq was in violation of UN Resolutions by still being in possession of weapons of mass destruction, and secondly, that Iraq was behind 9-11. Both claims have since been disproved and discredited, and appear to be created by the Pentagon Office at the heart of the latest Israel Spy Scandal. Under United States law, the war in Iraq was illegal. And We the People are not under any legal or moral obligation to pay for it, let alone let our kids be killed in it.
The time to get pissed was over 12 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq. This was the best magical trick ever with 12 billion disappearing into thin air then reappearing in Swiss Bank Accounts and Off Shore Banks. The former U.S. civilian overlord of Iraq, Ambassador L. Paul Bremer, performed this magic of making 363 TONS of newly printed, shrink-wrapped $100 bills disappear. That’s $12 billion in cold, hard American cash! Instead of using mirrors, crooked and incompetent contractors, greedy defense corporations and Iraqi crooks in a government were his props of choice.
The time to get pissed was Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country. Companies were given tax breaks for outsourcing jobs to India and other countries for slave wages. This is where the art of communication went to hell without a hand basket. The Folks in India were Rude and Arrogant with an attitude of heirs and had millions of American enraged. There were no jobs here in the USA and Unemployment was at an ALL Time HIGH! This was the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.
The time to get pissed was when Bush allowed his Corporate Boys Companies to downsize and eliminated positions for a tax break and to help raise profits on their stocks. People lost their pensions and were screwed out of there severance pay. Unemployment benefits were taxed and became an income. The same held true for Social Security and Disability benefits. To make matters worse extensions were no more and the length of time of Unemployment was cut shorter. People lost their sole income with Foreclosures happening left and right. Food Banks went broke from the number of people needing help and no donations in sight. Energy Assistance Programs weren’t able to assist people after Bush slashed this and other social services down to the bone. There was with no help what so ever with to assist millions of people in need. We the people suffered the consequences of doing without. The lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values. Tax Breaks were lavished on the rich who got richer than rich. Nobody said not one word or any vocal feedback at all!
The time to get pissed was after Katrina destroyed New Orleans the victims went without help for 3 DAYS…count them 1-2-3 days! Fox news was there and the rest of the Media got pissed off with Fox news for their coverage of this story that showed that our great nation was uncaring and racist. Bush stood still and silent as bodies floated down the river once he finally arrived in Louisiana. He didn’t flinch once and showed no emotion what so ever. This when the Black Community were convinced that the man was on CRACK! The Black Community got completely pissed and foaming at the mouth after Barbara Bush made the comment that; “People were better off living in the Astros Dome and they should be left there. White America said nothing after giving this all of the airtime it could possibility get. This was when the Black Community decided that the woman had dementia from smoking CRACK with her son.
The time to get pissed was when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance. Bush created a federal budget that cut Medicare to fund billions for that illegal war of his. Bush made it illegal to sue your HMO and gave Insurance Companies free reign to hurt “We” the “People” than help and cure them. The expensive drugs that people needed to stay alive were denied and placing this burden onto to their Insured. The majority of “We” the “People” was and still is on a fixed income and had no money for this. Ridiculous High co-pays were charged once again screwing the person out of their medications needed to stay better and well. Donut Hole Periods was and still is when you lost your insurance coverage for long periods of time randomly. The Department of Welfare stopped giving out medical coupons and put people into a spend down period which meant no Medications for the Terminally Ill who needed their medications to stay alive and well… Medicare was cut to the bone with people losing their Healthcare from their Government. My health took plunge when I lost my Healthcare after falling into the Donut Hole. I went from having an undetectable viral load (which meant that there’s not a trace of the virus in your body) and High CD4 Cell Counts. To a viral load in the millions with a CD4 Cell count of 50. I also started suffering from the Opportunist Infections-Nausea, Fatigue, and Diarrhea. I also have chronic Depression and hyper-active which had me a nervous wreck without my Anti-Depressions. The count almost went to 200,001 US Citizens who died who had no Health Insurance. With that one being me!
Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined. Add this to illegal wars, (we didn’t catch Bin Laden), lies, corruption, the horrible conditions at Walter Reed, illegally wiretapping, torture, job losses by the millions, and stealing your tax dollars. All to make the rich richer and creating the worst economic disaster since 1929. All of these low down ploys were okay with you, the reality of not helping fellow Americans in need. The People, who were sick, got sicker, sickest then died is perfectly fine with you.
You the Un-American finally got pissed beyond believe when a Black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. In present day people should have got pissed when The Republican Party voted to stop emergency extensions for Unemployment. This meant that 2 ½ million people would have been without any financial assistance. They denied their State Stimulus Money for Mortgage Assistance. People got pissed when President Obama overturned their decision. And what does the a big part of Americans do vote the Poison Tea Party and the Racist Republican and their followers into Office and giving control to them. People didn’t get pissed while being pissed on. And they’re still enjoying the golden showers from the Corrupt Racist Republicans and the Corporations that rule them.
