Are People Blind? Or Just Stupid?

Day after day, week after week, month after month, many Americans continue to fall for the most obvious and outrageous lies they’re being told by their government officials.  I write this on the day after the National Election Pool concluded from an examination of the exit poll data from the Nov. 2, 2004 Presidential election, that the reason the real-time numbers were significantly different, although oddly almost all in favor of Bush, than the final tally was simply because Democrats were over-polled.  Democrats were OVER-POLLED?? Or as non-delusional people would say, the exit-polls, you know the $10 million surveys scientifically conducted based on accurate demographic information in order to verify the accuracy of the most important election in the world, in which votes are largely counted on voting machines with “private” coding that are supplied by big financial contributors to the incumbent and his political party, one of whom promised to deliver the incumbent the electoral votes of what many see as the most important state in the election, which would also be the one most riddled with voting irregularities.

Bush during 2000 campaign.

This, coming amid the preparation for George W. Bush’s inaugural coronation, which is being funded by cash contributions of up to a maximum of $250,000, up from the $100,000 “limit” in Bush’s 2000 inauguration, mainly from the corporations who will now expect to co-write much of the legislation that the large Republican majority will easily push through Congress.  Some might think that this is somewhat of an immoral thing to do while the nation is at war and soldiers are dying almost on a daily basis, in a war that recently became officially based on complete lies when the U.S. announced the end of it’s hunt for WMD, which the Bush Administration, many of whom I might add are original members of the PNAC, a neo-conservative think tank that, since 1997, has been very vocal about it’s desires to gain control of Iraq referred to constantly in the lead up to the invasion, trying to scare the crap out of the American people.  But the inauguration can’t possibly be immoral, because the exit polls, which by the way said John Kerry won the Presidency, said it was Bush’s moral values that got him so many votes, especially among those Evangelical Christian, who apparently are all for a war that has killed over 100,000 civilians in the land where much of the Bible actually took place and that Bush order to be heavily bombed. 

We know this because the President recently informed us that the 2004 election “was an “accountability moment" for his administration's handling of the war.”  Never mind the fact that, once again, though in larger numbers, tens of thousands of African American voters were deliberately and systematically suppressed from casting their ballot, because just on Monday, Bush assured us that Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of the civil rights still enjoyed by the American people.  Speaking of civil rights, not only did Bush appoint a staunch advocate of civil rights to Attorney General in his first term, who helped bring us the USA Patriot Act, but this term, appointed the man who wrote most of the laws authorizing the U.S. to torture POWs.  One might speculate that maybe if we had planned better for a continued presence in Iraq or had better intelligence, that we might not need to torture prisoners, but certainly can’t be the case, since the Director of the CIA, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Head of the CPA in Iraq were all awarded “freedom medals” for their outstanding service to our country, like allowing the worst attack on our country since Pearl Harbor and killing over 100,000 civilians and helping new Iraqi leaders make the transition to a Democratic government, only to soon be killed. 


You know, if our economy wasn’t doing so damn good and the dollar not so damn strong, I’d probably be starting to worry a little bit about the fact that the war, which at one point was going to be paid for mostly by profits from Iraqi oil, is costing many billions more than was predicted.  I’m just glad I don’t have to worry about having money when I retire in 30 years, since Bush will likely borrow $2,000,000,000,000 to fix Social Security by cutting benefits and flooding Wall Street with trillions of dollars and worst of all handing the bill to the American People to pay AGAIN, since they already paid it into the surplus, only to quickly be spent by the government.  Well, it’s all right, I’m sure it went towards good things like education, cleaning the environment, reducing poverty, increasing the dwindling standard of living, helping kids pay for college, reducing the cost of prescription drugs, or better yet, making sure they don’t kill us.  Because clearly, Mr. Bush is concerned about peoples’ well being.  That became obvious amid the relief effort for victims of the tsunami disaster, when he donated money out of his own shallow pockets to the relief effort, which ironically was the same amount as the fine Randy Moss recently received for pretending to show his ass to Green Bay Packers fans after he scored a touchdown. 

"I remember campaigning in Chicago one time, and the guy said, would you ever deficit spend? I said, well, only if we were at war, or the country was in recession, or there was a national emergency. I didn't realize we were going to get the trifecta."
