On The Effects of the Bush Bomb 7 Years Later
I have found it helpful(?) to view George Bush, his administration, and his supporters, not as a group, not as individuals, but as One Big Weapon of Mass Destruction.
The Bush Bomb was dropped on an unsuspecting public on January 20th in the year 2001. This is a partial chronicle of the destructive effects of the Bush Bomb and the lingering, though still lethal, fallout.
It had always been assumed that a devastating attack on The United States would come from a foreign country. A generation of schoolchildren was taught to "Duck & Cover" as a way to survive a Russian attack.
However the perpetrators behind the dropping of the Bush Bomb were a extraordinary alliance of American terrorist organizations made up of multi-billion dollar corporations, right-wing religious fanatics, the Republican party, and complicit Democrats.
After the Bush Bomb fell the infrastructure of the country's news organizations was so severely damaged that to this day it is almost impossible for them to broadcast anything of any value to American citizens.
On September 11th, 2001, 234 days after the Bush Bomb fell, almost 3,000 Americans died. It cannot be determined whether or not these deaths are directly attributable to the Bush Bomb or to the incompetence of the government whose ability to defend The United States had been severely crippled after the bomb was dropped.
Due to the destruction of the Mainstream Media by the Bush Bomb there has been an almost complete news blackout of what really occurred that day.
On August 29th, 2005 the north-central Gulf Coast of The United States and the city of New Orleans was destroyed. The official death toll stands at about 1,300 but thousands of people are still missing. The whereabouts of 6,600 people reported missing have not been determined. Almost all of these deaths are directly the result of The Bush Bomb.
But the destruction caused by The Bush Bomb was not limited to the United States. Though almost 4,000 American soldiers have been killed and 23,000 to 100,000 wounded ... in comparison we have fared much better than the citizens of Iraq.
Iraq has been destroyed.
Over a million Iraqis have been killed and the UN estimates that almost 5 million people have been displaced by the violence unleashed by The Bush Bomb.
Further destruction on the Domestic Front:
Since The Bush Bomb went off, almost all manufacturing has ceased in this country. Prison labor, slave labor, and child labor in foreign countries now produce most of the goods sold in The United States.
The voting system is perhaps irretrievably broken. The results from national and state elections are neither transparent nor verifiable.
Nearly 47 million Americans, 16 percent of the population, are without health insurance.
Gas prices are soon expected to be almost 400% higher than they were before The Bush Bomb. I have no idea what this increase specifically will do to food and heating costs. But there are 36.5 million people who live in poverty in this country and in any given year, 3.5 million of them are homeless. It is safe to say that their condition will only deteriorate
What perhaps is the most bizarre and seemingly inexplicable result of The Bush Bomb is the mindset of the American Populace. I can only define it as a variation of the Stockholm syndrome on a national scale.
As of February 1st, 2008, the leading candidates running for the presidency of The United States are directly or indirectly sponsored by the same American terrorist organizations that designed, built, … and dropped … The Bush Bomb. But regardless of this fact, the majority of Americans are vigorously supporting a "candidate" chosen for them by this domestic terrorist coalition.
It will take decades … generations … to recover from the devastation caused by the Bush Bomb. This implies though, that a restoration will actually begin. But at this writing it appears that there is nothing in place … not even in the planning stage … to help the Iraqi or American people recover from this catastrophe.
Y'know … until I wrote this … I used to think of myself as an optimistic guy.

My Favorite(?) Excerpt
The discrepancy between the kind of society many Germans thought they were building and the reality of the horror of the Third Reich presents one of the most intriguing questions of our age. How could Fascism -- have happened in a modern, industrialized, educated nation?

Books I Give To People I Know and Maybe They'll Still Talk To Me But Probably Won't
Deep Green Resistance - Strategy to Save the Planet
Aric McBay, Lierre Keith, and Derrick Jensen
For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, “Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?” No one ever says yes.
Deep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can’t fix it, and shopping—no matter how green—won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful.

The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder
by Vincent Bugliosi
"I hope that at some time in the near future a courageous U.S. attorney general, U.S. attorney, state attorney general, or district attorney in America who is committed to the rule of law and who has dedicated his career to enforcing the law fairly against all who, big or small, violate it, will hear the cries for justice from the graves of the thousands upon thousands of men, women, and children who had their lives violently cut short because of the lies of a man who smiled through it all. And that, with a sense of uncompromising righteousness, he will take the ample case I have laid out in this book before an American jury to let them decide whether George W Bush is guilty or not guilty of murder, and if so, what his punishment should be.
Even if this doesn't happen and what I have said in this book receives all the attention of a new fly in the forest, I do know that someone had to say what is written on the pages of this book."

Rules for Radicals
by Saul D Alinsky
"What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
In 1971, Saul Alinsky wrote an entertaining classic on grassroots organizing titled Rules for Radicals.
For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting what is wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it.

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism
by Naomi Klein
Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine advances a truly unnerving argument: historically, while people were reeling from natural disasters, wars and economic upheavals, savvy politicians and industry leaders nefariously implemented policies that would never have passed during less muddled times. As Klein demonstrates, this reprehensible game of bait-and-switch isn't just some relic from the bad old days. It's alive and well in contemporary society, and coming soon to a disaster area near you.
