It's a SAD SAD TALE....

I am not the author of this enlightened document -- only received it through cyberspace and am reposting, as I would beg you to do to spread the word; But if this doesn't wake up some people who seem to continually stay blinded to what's happening to this country, then I don't see where there's much hope. I know it's a little long, but at least skim through it and get the idea!

Sorry for this more "graphic" illustrative photo, but it's just too appropriate to not use it!

1600 Pennsylvania AvenueWashington, DC 20520



I was arrested in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1976 for driving under the influence of alcohol. I pled guilty, paid a fine, and had my driver's license suspended for 30 days. My Texas driving record has been "lost" and is not available.


I joined the Texas Air National Guard and went AWOL. I refused to take a drug test or answer any questions about my drug use. By joining the Texas Air National Guard, I was able to avoid combat duty in Vietnam.


I graduated from Yale University with a low C average. I was a cheerleader.


I ran for U.S. Congress and lost. I began my career in the oil business in Midland, Texas, in 1975. I bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas. The company went bankrupt shortly after I sold all my stock.
I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using taxpayer money. With the help of my father and our friends in the oil industry, including Enron CEO Ken Lay, I was elected governor of Texas.


I changed Texas pollution laws to favor power and oil companies, making Texas the most polluted state in the Union. During my tenure, Houston replaced Los Angeles as the most smog-ridden city in merica. I cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas treasury to the tune of billions in borrowed money. I set the record for the most executions by any governor in American history. With the help of my brother, the governor of Florida, and my father's appointments to the Supreme Court, I became President after losing by over 500,000 votes.


I am the first President in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. I invaded and occupied two countries at a continuing cost of over one billion dollars per week. I spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted the U.S. Treasury. I shattered the record for the largest annual deficit in U.S. history. I set an economic record for most private bankruptcies filed in any 12-month period. I set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a 12-month period. I set the all-time record for the biggest drop in the history of the U.S. stock market.

In my first year in office, over 2 million Americans lost their jobs and that trend continues every month.

I'm proud that the members of my cabinet are the richest of any administration in U.S. history. My "poorest millionaire," Condoleeza Rice, had a Chevron oil tanker named after her. I set the record for most campaign fund-raising trips by a U.S. President. I am the all-time U.S. and world record-holder for receiving the most corporate campaign donations. My largest lifetime campaign contributor, and one of my best friends, Kenneth Lay, presided over the largest corporate bankruptcy fraud in U.S. History, Enron.

My political party used Enron private jets and corporate attorneys to assure my success with the U.S. Supreme Court during my election decision. I have protected my friends at Enron and Halliburton against investigation or prosecution. More time and money was spent investigating the Monica Lewinsky affair than has been spent investigating one of the biggest corporate rip-offs in history.

I presided over the biggest energy crisis in U.S. history and refused to intervene when corruption involving the oil industry was revealed. I presided over the highest gasoline prices in U.S. history.I changed the U.S.policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded government contracts. I appointed more convicted criminals to my administration than any President in U.S. history. I created the Ministry of Homeland Security, the largest bureaucracy in the history of the United States government.

I've broken more international treaties than any President in U.S. history.I am the first President in U.S. history to have the United Nations remove the U.S. from the Human Rights Commission. I withdrew the U.S.from the World Court of Law. I refused to allow inspectors access to U.S. "prisoners of war" detainees and thereby have refused to abide by the Geneva Convention. I am the first President in history to refuse United Nations election inspectors (during the 2002 U.S. election). I set the record for fewest numbers of press conferences of any President since the advent of television. I set the all-time record for most days on vacation in any one-year period. After taking off the entire month of August, I presided over the worst security failure in U.S. history. I garnered the most sympathy for the U.S. after the World Trade Center attacks and less than a year later made the U.S. the most hated country in the world, the largest failure of diplomacy in world history.

I have set the all-time record for most people worldwide to simultaneously protest me in public venues (15 million people), shattering the record for protests against any person in the history of mankind.

I am the first President in U.S. history to order an unprovoked, pre-emptive attack and the military occupation of a sovereign nation. I did so against the will of the United Nations, the majority of U.S. citizens, and the world community. I have cut health care benefits for war veterans and support a cut in duty benefits for active duty troops and their families-in-wartime. In my State of the Union Adress, I lied about our reasons for attacking Iraq and then blamed the lies on our British friends. I am the first President in history to have a majority of Europeans (71%) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and security. I am supporting development of a nuclear "Tactical Bunker Buster," a WMD. I have so far failed to fulfill my pledge to bring Osama Bin Laden [sic] to justice.


All records of my tenure as governor of Texas are now in my father's library, sealed and unavailable for public view.
All records of SEC investigations into my insider trading and my bankrupt companies are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public view.
All records or minutes from meetings that I, or my Vice-President, attended regarding public energy policy are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public review.

I am a member of the Republican Party.

We the Sheeple

This was posted today in the bulletin section of MySpace by my friend, An American Patriot. I wrote him and told him that it was exactly my sentiments, though I would have never been able to say them so eloquently and could I post it here. Thankfully, he was very kind and was happy for it to get spread around.

We the Sheeple of the United Snakes, in Order to form an American Union, establish Injustice, insure no Tranquility, provide for the common greed, promote Welfare, and dumbdown ourselves and give away our Liberty, do ordain our government to take away all of our rights, establish a Police State, monitor our phone calls, and treat us no better than the tyrant that we left in England.

That is how I feel today, my heart is ready to explode, how it weighs so heavy in my chest ready to drop like a grapefruit from a tree only to hit the ground and burst exposing its contents.

It sadens my soul to see how weak and subdued the citizenry of this country have become, we see the problems all around us, yet we do nothing to change what we know is clearly wrong.

Let the government take care of it, thats their job, this is what many people have said, but you cannot see that the very ones we have intrusted with the problems of this country are the very ones creating the problems. So you become dependant on criminals and liars and so you are delivered into bondage.

I was always under the impression that we were to make things better for our children, raise them up not to make the same mistakes that we made, how I shudder with the thought off what kind of country we are leaving for them. Throwing away our rights based on fear, I know what your thinking, if we give up just some of our rights that will make it a better place for our children to live in, under this misconception wouldnt giving up all of our rights make it a pefect place.

Imagine a country filled with people living day to day in a police state, working for the common good of a greedy corporate government, where their every move is watched by big brother, looking for a chance to whisper to one another stories of a country that used to be free, where individuals had rights, a voice, an ability to stand up and point out the tyranny in the world.

This is the world I see for our children, sound outlandish? Look around, what do you see? Police looking more like the military everyday, cameras going up on every street corner, more and more of our rights dwindling away all in the name of security, yet how do you feel? Do you feel safe, or are you just content? Theres nothing to worry about, Right? You still have American Idol, Desperate Housewifes and the mainstream media, all is well.

Our government is protecting us from the boogymen that threaten our country right? All the while their wallets grow fatter with the spoils of forced Democracy and the death toll grows from the lies they fed us, the same lies that take away our children to fight for that same lie. Where will it all stop? Iran, Syria? How many of our loved ones will be fed to the machine that is clearly out of control?

I am reminded of a speech given by Mario Savio in 1964, There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!

When will we stand up to the machine? In fact to our own selfishness, we have let this machine grow to a point where it is becoming unstoppable, we must stand up now, take back what is our right, our freedom! Stop the war machine, stop those who profit from the lies before its to late and our legacy to our children will be one of shame and regret.

The future is truly up to us, will you be just another sheeple in the corporate slave state or will you create a future for the next generation?

The choice is yours.
