Potpourri...tying up loose ends

As we all know, charity begins at home. And the bigger and more luxurious the home, the better. That's what Republican tax cuts are all about. Charity.

But to make our tax cuts permanent, it's essential that President Bush finds ways to cut costs. For instance, it's cheaper to keep our troops in Iraq than in America because the cost of living in Iraq is so low. In Iraq, an AK-47 costs like $10.

Lately, President Bush has been working on another great money-saving idea. Perhaps you've heard that the President appointed John Bolton to the U.N. without the Senate's consent. And he just appointed Peter Flory as assistant secretary of defence, again without the Senate's consent.

What all this shows is the Senate is not that important. By cutting out the Senate, the United States government could easily save a billion dollars a year in salaries and expenses. Then there would be the huge savings in less pork-barrelling.

To many in the White House, President Bush has already expressed how much more efficient government would be if he could rule without those busybodies of the Supreme Court and the moochers in the House of Representatives. All he really needs is about 50,000 really loyal soldiers and America could run like clockwork.

Today, Wednesday August 3rd, 14 marines were killed in Iraq doing the democratic, freedom-loving work assigned to them by President George W. Bush. In the past 10 days, 43 marines have been killed in Iraq.

Within the last month, over 50 Londoners (America's allies in Iraq) were killed by despicable Muslim terrorists.

Then yesterday, Tuesday, August 2nd, a planeload of French people crashed at a Canadian airport — and not one, single person was killed or even badly injured. As you may know, neither the French nor Canadians are our allies fighting for freedom in Iraq.

Although I would never, ever question God and his Master Plan, I must admit I'm a little curious as to why cowardly French people and useless Canadians would walk away from a disaster when God-fearing Americans and brave Englanders are felled in the prime of their lives.

God's work on earth would certainly be so much more understandable if a few of those Frenchies had perished.

People seemed shocked that President Bush says he believes Rafael Palmeiro when the baseball player says he has no idea how steroids got into his body.

President Bush is a man of trust. So it's his nature to believe people.

When Ken Lay said he had no idea how $5 billion was removed from Enron, President Bush believed him.

When Karl Rove said he didn't reveal the identity of a CIA agent, President Bush believed him.

When Hans Blix said there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, President Bush believed him. But the cost of living in Iraq was just too good to resist.

GWB and God working hand in hand to create job openings and lower the percentage of Americans out of work.

No one said it better than George W. Bush himself: "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

HA! If only he wasn't joking. He was joking, wasn't he?

Hey, Nancy Jo, you know another good thing about the idea of getting rid of the Senate other than saving money? Hillary would be out of a job. Talk about your "win-win" situations. It's brilliant is what it is!

You are absolutely right in never, ever questioning the Master plan, and I can tell you really mean it, but you need to guard against thinking too much about things. You're young, so you can be forgiven, but real faith lets you not do any thinking at all. That's the Plan, Nancy Jo. I admit that it seems sometimes that God does some crazy things. I mean, and I've mentioned this before, what good are anchovies, and why did God create 'em? I don't know. They taste real bad, and I don't think they do much of anything, but God's got a Plan, see, and I just have to be faithful and everything will be okay. Trust Him. He brought us GW didn't He? He'll take care of those Frenchies and the Canadians. Don't you worry.

You're doing Good, Nancy Jo. Just stay true.

Arf ! Calling us useless is a bit harsh, Nancy Jo. After all, we do supply God-Fearing America with wood, oil, and cheap electricity. I hope you remember that when you drive to your appartment to enjoy your beautiful pine furniture and watch tv!

No hard feelings though, you entertain me way too much.

By the way, I'm 50% french.

I have to agree with you, Beaver, calling us “useless” is a bit harsh. Perhaps we didn’t support the American led invasion of Iraq but I can tell you why. The Canadian Intelligence community knew for a fact that Iraq no longer possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and on several occasions shared that information with their US counterparts to no avail. To maintain our outward appearance of being a peace loving nation we refused to take part in what we knew would become an unjustifiable war. However, to stay somewhat friendly with that US we agreed to take on the brunt of the work rebuilding Afghanistan which allowed the US to free up two, yes count’em, two Divisions to take part in the coming invasion of Iraq. Canada doesn’t even have 1 infantry Division let alone 2. It should be hard to call a country that has a military capable of doing the work of 2 Divisions with 1 Brigade USELESS! Then again I can’t expect Nancy Jo to know what almost everyone in the Military community knows. That is, despite its small size and lack of equipment Canada’s Military is one of the finest in the world. After all it was the US Army’s famed 101st Airborne Division that specifically requested the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Regiment, our state of the art Recon vehicles and our world class beats the Marines all the time Snipers to accompany them into Afghanistan after 9/11. Let us not forget that and let us not forget that while we were fighting along side our American allies some hot shot Air Force fighter jock decided it would be fun to drop a 500lb bomb on some Canadian soldiers killing 4 of them. I believe it was Major Schmidt of the Air National Guard who was found guilty of conduct un-becoming and had his flight status revoked. A fighter pilot with no wings… now that, Nancy Jo, is the definition of “useless”. I apologize in advance Nancy Jo if my words sound harsh. Sometimes I just feel like I need to remind America that Canada does indeed do more then you know, and in fact I personally am a supporter of a lot of what Bush has done in the war on terror.

As for Jerry’s comments that God will “take care of those Frenchies and the Canadians” I’m a religious man and will not get into an argument over God’s intentions nor am I big fan of the French as far as I’m concerned they’ve only ever been good at two things, making wine and running from Germans, but chew on this… Why is it that on one hand God would let, in your opinion, evil French and Canadian folk escape a fiery passenger jet crash unscathed while on the other allows you good God fearing folk and your country to get slammed by some of the strongest Hurricanes in recorded history. Perhaps he is trying to punish us evil Canadians by ruining our favorite vacation spots. The Lord does work in mysterious ways… doesn’t he.
