"I'd Like To Forget"
I'd like to forget that fifty percent of voters in 2000 chose as leader of the
free world, a man who made smirked remarks about being a "C" student in a
college he could never dream of attending if his last name was Billingsley
instead of Bush; a man who couldn't find oil in Texas, and a commander-in-chief
whose military claim-to-fame is a part-time weekend warrior gig ensuring Texas
was not invaded by Oklahoma.
I sat in a movie theater watching "Behind Enemy Lines" and asked myself, "Why is war is so glorified?"
I sat in a movie theater watching "Pearl Harbor" and asked myself, "Why does a bad actor like Ben Affleck get so many starring roles?"
I fear I'll never understand why.
I'd like to forget the election of 2000, otherwise known as the Supreme Court Justices' Family Full-Employment Act (SCJFFEA)
I'd like to forget that the same arrogance displayed today by the Bush Bullies to the world-at-large also existed when they ignored terrorist security warnings by the outgoing Clinton administration.
I'd like to forget that right-wing conservative "reverends" make idiotic public statements like the Reverend Falwell's "The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this.", relating to the 9/11 attacks. The Reverend Robinson publicly agreed with that brain cramp.
I'd like to forget the facts relating to a previous controversial and flawed military endeavor, such as former Vietnam advisors Robert McNamarra and Henry Kissenger self-servingly acknowledging they were aware at the time that their Vietnam policies were doomed to fail, but kept quiet. Thanks guys. We really appreciate you coming clean so many years later. The mind reels thinking of potential future Mia culpas trying to explain a preemption policy to fight "evil"? I bet motor mouth Rumsfeld will be one of the first.
