FINALLY!!! SOME people are talking about PAKISTAN! Where the REAL terrorists are!!!
Well, let's examine (again) the "righteousness" of this mission.
Uh, on second thought, what is to examine?
I mean, right after 9/11, we, as a country, were scared. A symbolic part of New York was attacked and had it not been for some brave civilians, even greater damage might have been done to the Pentagon and to the White House.
As a country, we all wanted to exact "revenge" on those no good turban headed SOB's who did this to us!
And we looked to our "leaders" for guidance.
That fact that our "leaders" consisted of wannabe "cowboys" and folks who had other agendas, was something we weren't aware of while we were most vulnerable. And boy, they (our "leaders") played us like a drum.
"Weapons Of Mass Destruction!" "9/11!" "Saddam Hussein!" "IRAQ!" "It's where the terrorists are!"
No weapons of mass destruction?
These folks had nothing to do with 9/11?
Saddam Hussein? Yeah, a bad guy, but didn't we used to be in bed with him when he was known to be a bad guy? No, he didn't have anything to do with Iraq, but we got him a date with a hangman, didn't we?
And finally..."It's (Iraq) where the terrorists are? Uh, yeah. But not until after we got there!
Thousands of Americans killed in Iraq. Who knows how many thousands of Americans suffered permanent life changing injuries resulting in them returning home as "shells" of the people they were before being required to participate in this idiotic mission.
A mission that is summed up in two words; FOR WHAT?!?
You wanna know where the terrorists REALLY are and always HAVE been?!?
In bleeping PAKISTAN!!! A country that is allegedly an ally of ours in the so-called "FIGHT against terrorism!"
But Pakistan is a country that has (in essence) been harboring the man who is really responsible for 9/11. Osama bin Laden!!!
Have you ever heard Sean "Little Lord Fauntleroy" Hannity talk about that? And why our leaders haven't done more to bring the real 9/11 perpetrator to justice?
Of course not!
And why not?
Because his false idols, like Karl Rove, haven't told him to!
Hold on! Hold on! I can hear the words of Hannity defenders in my ears.
But Scott (me), what about the "benefit concerts" that Sean "Little Lord Fauntleroy" Hannity participates in? Concerts that benefit family members of our troops! Isn't Sean "Little Lord Fauntleroy" Hannity the "Great American" he encourages his listeners to refer to him as (if for no other reason) for those benefits he participates in?
Here's my answer to that.
I come from a family of veterans. I'm one myself.
Yes! Anything that's done to support the troops besides just talking about it is much appreciated by me and veterans everywhere.
Here's another thing we veterans appreciate.
And I'm happy to report that FINALLY...Some people are beginning to talk about Pakistan!
And I'd like to personally invite Sean "Little Lord Fauntleroy" Hannity to join the Pakistan truth party. A party that (sadly) his idol Karl Rove isn't a part of.
AND SPEAKING OF IRAQ!!!
Have you heard about this little "disagreement" White House officials and Iraqi officials are having regarding a withdrawal date for American troops.
Before Iraqi officials sign a new "security agreement" with Washington, they want language in that new "security agreement" to state a specific date when U.S. troops will be withdrawn from Iraq.
If a new agreement isn't reached by the end of this year, U.S. troops will be there illegally if they're still in Iraq. A White House spokesman says U.S. troops will definitely be there after the first of year, "agreement" or not.
And people wonder about our arrogance at times.
Let me put this in language we can all understand. How happy would we be if another country's leaders came to America and began telling us what to do?
Here's another question. Do our White House "leaders" now believe that Iraq is OURS?!?
I mean, are we planning to put a new Major League baseball team there? A new NBA team? A new NFL team? How about reality television shows? Will Iraq become another place for Ryan Seacrest to have a job? Will another member of the Bush family become Iraq's new Ayatollah? Or does President Bush believe he is Iraq's new Ayatollah now?
SCARY ECONOMIC NEWS FOR CBS/VIACOM!!!
Stock prices for CBS/Viacom have dropped more than 35% this year.
That is the possible reason that some major belt tightening is now taking place at CBS/Viacom.
A few days ago, some network and syndicated directors for CBS/Viacom were given some shocking news. Effective immediately, their pay has been cut 26%!!!
Question: What would happen to your lifestyle if your pay check was reduced by 26%?
CBS/Viacom radio and television "personalities" haven't been hit with this (yet), but to suggest that some are whacha call "uneasy" would be an understatement of the first order. As are the vibrations inside the stomach and rear end areas of CBS/Viacom management folks.
