If you read my friend Jeff's comments about the budget deficit below my last post, and click on the link in the title of this posting, you start to get the idea that the Bush Administration is sinking the country into a record budget deficit. Wasn't this the guy who was supposed to be fiscally conservative? Congress and the President can't place the blame on "tax and spend liberals" now.
I can hear you asking "Ryan, who gives a rat's ass about the budget deficit? Don't we need to spend money so that we're safe from terrorists and regimes with nuclear weapons, and gay marriage?" The fact is that most people don't understand or don't give a crap about the federal budget deficit or Bush's $427 billion spending for this year, when you include the $80 Billion Bush is asking for in Iraq.
But, isn't all this spending making us safer? Think again. Not only have we conceded that Iraq did not possess even the materials to draw pictures of weapons of mass destruction and that there is no link between Iraq and Al Qaida (aside from the one that resulted when we attacked a sovereign Muslim country), but bankrupting the United States is apparently making us more vulnerable in the eyes of Osama Bin Laden.
Why should we care what Bin Laden thinks? BECAUSE HE'S THE SICK FUCK THAT ATTACKED US and NEWS FLASH: We're not as safe as we think we are. I can see how it would be easy to lose sight of this with all the Republicans running around telling us the sky is falling because a bunch of gay people got married or because somebody had an abortion, and with the Bush Administration blaming the 9/11 attacks on Saddam. Speaking of which, here is an exercise in politics with Dick and George click here and then click here. I dated girls in college who were more clear about their intentions than these two ass clowns.
Osama Bin Laden wants us to spend billions in Iraq because its billion of dollars that won't go towards preventing terrorism at home or chasing his crazy, goat-screwing, bearded-ass through the mountains of Tora Bora. Read this and tell me if you think we're safer focusing all of our attention of Iraq. After all, Iraq is starting to look more and more like a real democracy every day!
As an aside, my cousin was in Washington, D.C. to protest Bush's $40 million party. I will be posting some photos of the protests, since the left-wing media didn't bother to show the protesters since they were peaceful and kept all their clothes on.
