Cowardly Bush, Has Sheehan Arrested

In a show of manliness before the State of the Union Address last night, Bush in a demonstration of his fear of free speech, had Cindy Sheehan arrested in the Capital Building.

Out of fear of her T-Shirt, which read, "2,245 Dead. How many more?", Sheehan was arrested around 8:30 p.m. on charges of unlawful conduct, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail. Clearly, Bush found the statistics printed on her T-Shirt disturbing and could not face them. Sheehan had been invited to the State of the Union Address by Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-California.

After the frightening Cindy Sheehan was sent off to booking, bedwetter Bush told the American people that they are petroleum addicts, addicted to oil that is provided by countries in bad parts of the world. Like oil that comes from his good friends in Saudi Arabia, and oil that his family is making lots and lots of money on. He promised that America would become more reliant on coal for its energy needs, a move that truly makes him a 19th century president. Further he went on to extol the virtue of powering our great nation with switchgrass and nuclear energy. He announced that the nation should become more reliant on alternative sources of energy. A pretty bold move IMO, considering, that the quantity of energy available in alternatives will be significantly less than we are enjoying now.

He went on to threaten Iran and remind us that Iran is a boogy man that we should be afraid of. And I agree. If Iran goes through with their plan to sell oil in Euros (not just price them that way), then the burden of holding freshly made dollars will fall not on oil producing nations, but on the Central Banks in Europe (the same banks that set exchange rates). If Iran begins banking Euros and shedding dollars, then the Central banks will be forced to change the exchange rate for the dollar and devalue it. This will make it much more expensive for Americans to print money to buy oil with.

“In interviews with 464 adult Americans who watched the speech, 48 percent said they had a very positive reaction. That's well short of the three-quarters of viewers who reacted favorably to Bush's 2002 State of the Union address.” – Evidently 48% of Americans like being called oil addicts.

Get ready America, Bush is set on taking your SUVs away! Just kidding. :) He’s not going lose out on oil profits by refusing to feed your addiction. There’s lot's more money to be made by just jacking up the price of oil!

Surprisingly, Bush reportedly made no mention of Osama Bin Laden, the man that he argues is of no concern, and is out to get us. Bush recently told us that this marginalized person of no concern, means what he says when he tells us he's gonna get us again. Booga! Booga! Be afraid! Bush can't save us unless he breaks laws.

I'm no fan of Bush (hate the bastard and all of the creeps around him in fact!) or that fucking Iraq war but Cindy Sheehan gives new meaning to the word CUNT! She is the worst thing that happened to the legitimatepeace movement since Jane Fonda. As usual she was just looking for another photo op. She probably would have started screaming in that awful shrill voice right in the middle of the Bushman's speech too. I don't blame them for throwing the silly twat out of there. I have the feeling if her dead son could speak from the grave he would shout "Hey Mom! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!" Peace brother!

There seems to be a lot of people channelling dead soldiers and speaking for them these days.

Demographics show us that Democrats tend to be more patriotic than Republicans. They sign up for military duty to defend America in larger numbers, even though Republicans would have us believe they are the majority. So as those courageous heroes are mostly Democrats, I wonder why Republicans that refuse to stand up and fight for America, often feel they can speak for dead soldiers as a general rule?

Anonymous, you wouldn't happen to be a veteran of war, that can speak for all of the fallen soldiers are you?

Do Democrats really sign up for the service in larger numbers? Bush still has the majority of servicemen supporting him and the war. The last number I read (very recently) was 54 per cent. Admittedly that figure is WAY down from a few years ago. I suspect that fucking war is getting old even for even the most gung ho Marine.

Actually it's no surprise more Democrats enlist in the service though. The fat cats (including Bush and Cheney...or anyone with money or power!) don't want any part in serving and poorer people tend to be Democrats (mostly for good reason!)

As far as speaking for all of the fallen soldiers, I would never try to do that. I said "I have the feeling..." in my remark about Sheehan's son. Cindy seems to be making a career about speaking for her own son though...even though he enlisted and re-enlisted of his own free will and died in Afghanistan (which is just a little bit different from Iraq and I think a justified conflict)...thus my thought of what his opinion of his mom MIGHT be.

Lastly yes I am a veteran of another war from 40 years ago that I also opposed from the beginning.

I would expect soldiers to overwhelmingly say they support the Commander And Chief. I'm surprised that so many say they don't.


Sheehan, on the other hand, was thrust into the spotlight after her 24-year-old son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, was killed in Iraq in April 2004.
