Left is Right and Right is Wrong
by Edgar J. Steele
October 13, 2004
Friday the 13th done come on a Wednesday this month! Isn't that what one of the characters in the old Pogo comic strip used to say when bad luck befell them there in the swamp? And, if it's Wednesday, it must be...that's right, kids...it's time for another episode of the John & George Show! If I could, I'd hum a couple bars of "Send in the Clowns" for you right now.
Only in America can politics be this...butt-ugly stupid.
Used to be, the rest of the world thought Americans were crass, obtuse, self centered, loud and pushy. But, America actually seemed to work in so many ways, and that is what bought us respect, even adulation. Kind of like Marilyn Monroe, the trashy starlet idolized by so many. Today, America is broken - horribly broken - and two centuries of goodwill have been squandered by the past few Administrations. Indeed, most of it was discarded by the current occupant of the White House. Today, America has become the most hated nation on earth, surpassing the scorn heaped upon even that little rat hole of a country: Israel.
Not surprisingly, America no longer is respected. It is feared, and with good reason. And we Americans no longer receive the indulgence that American economic and military success brought us in the past. Yes, unfortunately we still are seen as being crass, obtuse, self centered, loud and pushy. Difference is, increasingly we are perceived as being mean, venal and even criminal. Thanks, George.
By the time you read this, the third and final Presidential Election debate likely will be over. I see no need to wait and watch it to pronounce what now is apparent to all: The John and George Show is a farce. Talk about Stupid White Men! In one corner we have evil incarnate...Deathman, who loved to execute people as Governor of Texas and loves it even more now that he has access to cruise missiles. And, in the other corner is...Panderman! "I can't tell you how much respect I have for..." is a phrase I hope never to hear again in this lifetime. Kerry is beyond disgust for having used it repeatedly in an obvious attempt to curry favor with those who clearly disagree with his positions, if you can call them that. In fact, Kerry is beyond disgust for a great many reasons, but I am so disgusted with him that I can't bring myself to list them all just now. Besides, we haven't the time - there are only three weeks to go until the election.
Even Michael Moore, penultimate liberal, says: "Pick nose! Pick butt! Pick Kerry." He calls it the "Slacker Oath," and actually uses it in an attempt to garner votes for Kerry!
Could this election campaign get any more strange? Well, yes, I suppose, if Bush declares martial law and calls it off altogether, as is rumored. Of course, I heard the same rumor about Clinton, exactly four years ago.
I should have called this piece, "Deathman Meets Panderman," and conjured up the cheesy image of Godzilla and Mothra going at it, destroying Tokyo in the process. Of course, I would have to substitute the Middle East for Tokyo, but yellow people, brown people - what's the difference when you are the Titans of the Universe?
In fact, what do your own people matter? Can you believe what you hear from these guys? Both thought Iraq needed invading and both plan to keep killing Iraqi civilians all next year! Both plan to keep building the Twin Towers - no, not the ones taken out in New York City - the Twin Towering Deficits: fiscal and foreign spending. Believe me, the destruction, even death, resulting when those Twin Towers fall will far exceed what happened on 9/11. And, while neither will admit it, the draft is coming. It has to, because Bush singlehandedly has destroyed both the National Guard and the military reservist system. Nobody is going to hang around for either after being shanghaied as they have been this past year. That means my son the draftee is going to be sent to some Arab hellhole and likely come home in a body bag.
Excuse the interruption. I had to go take a valium and mix a drink. My shaking hands, clenching and unclenching in uncontrollable spasms, took over the keyboard, Ouija-like, and I ran screaming from the room in horror at what was being spelled out.
I'm better now...honest. Lessee, where were we when I completely lost it?
Oh, yes - the Presidential debates. I mean, does anybody really give a rat's ass which of these two weenies "looks more Presidential?" Debating? Hell, both ought to be testifying...in their own defense at their respective trials for treason.
There I go again. (Another valium...another slug of Dewar's.)
Look, the Left is right, for once. Bush is evil, stupid, self serving and a bloodthirsty megalomaniac. We are on the path to WWIII. Indeed, I believe that history will record that it began with 9/11. If he hasn't already guaranteed it, another four years of George W. Bush will ensure the death of America, both economically and militarily.
And the Right is wrong. Not even Al Gore, in his wildest dreams, could have imagined being given the license to spend and control that Bush has exercised. America's economic demise now is set in stone. While Orwell is being proven right, albeit twenty years late, neither did he accurately perceive the level to which government actually could sink. Remember, Orwell thought he was writing a satirical overstatement of tendencies he saw at work a little over fifty years ago. Imagine what he would be writing today! Of course, today he would have to be medicated even more than I require simply to be able to pound out these little rants of mine.
Let me say it again: We have only the illusion of elections in America these days. That is why the two political parties in America have become identical, so as to provide us rubes with the illusion of throwing the rascals out come election time, yet with the same old agenda not missing a beat. Did you really see a difference from Bush to Clinton to Bush? They knew what NAFTA would do to America's manufacturing base and job structure, yet both parties embraced it. We are firmly on a path to one-world government. America writ large, but the America now being molded without individual civil rights, not the America of the 20th Century. And it's largely kosher.
Even so, George W. Bush simply cannot be returned to office after what he has done to America. To a jail cell, yes, but not to the Presidency. We may get the government we deserve, but we don't deserve that. And you know how I feel about Kerry. There are others: Nader, for one (Independent). Peroutka, for another (Constitutional party), my personal pick. Badnarik, for yet another (Libertarian party).
If you don't vote, then you increase the influence of every vote for those against you might have voted, don't forget. Not voting is not opting out. Not voting is opting for whoever wins, because you could have helped defeat him. If Bush wins, then those who don't vote should be forced to have Bush yard signs and bumper stickers. Same thing, if Kerry wins.
During the second "debate," at one point, Bush became flustered at having run out of drivel to spout and asked, "Is my time up yet?" obviously wishing that it were.
Is your time up yet? Yes, Mr. President - your time is up. Please just go away and become a particularly bad memory.
New America. An idea whose time has come.
