Bushboy is our worst halloween-nightmare-fright
This incompetent fraud can't do anything right
He wants volunteers for
His fraudulent Iraq war
So why doesn't he send his own kids there to fight?!?

The last time I checked, one member of Congress had an offspring in the military actually doing service in Iraq. Which reminds me of the book, "Johnny Got His Gun," by Dalton Trumbo. Yes, the same Trumbo who had his life trashed by the House Unamerican Activities Committee because he refused to rat-out his fellow leftists in the Hollywood community of the 1930s.

Anyway, the book is about some poor, young bastard named Johnny, who gets sent off to war by the old farts in his government who are too old or cowardly to fight themselves. Johnny winds up losing all his limbs and his face and is just a husk of a human being, unable to communicate, trapped in a body that has been scorched and shriveled by war.

After lying helplessly in a hospital bed with nothing to do but think, and thinking only about how insane war is, Johnny figures out how to prevent wars from happening again. He decides that by tapping his head in Morse code, he can tell the world what he has discovered to stop future wars. His solution is quite simple: whenever any government orders their citizenry off to war, the citizens should take up arms, march to the seat of government and shoot those who ordered the war!

Just imagine if Bushboy thought the citizenry would be up in arms against him if he ordered a war that nobody wanted? Do you think he would go on national TV and lie about WMDs? Imagine the Congress? Filled with so many members who never faced anything more serious than whether to accept a dinner invitation from lobbyist A or lobbyist B. Would they vote for war knowing they would then be dodging bullets from their own constituents?

People taking out there own government? I know it's all too far fetched to happen. That might have worked in the 18th century with the French or in the 19th century with the Russians, but it wouldn't work in the 21st century in America!!

Which is why America will be "staying the course" in Iraq or marching off to war again, somewhere else (assuming we can afford it). And don't expect any of the politicians who promote and vote for the next war to be sending their kids into the enemy crossfire.

It will be your kids who are sent and who come home from the war scarred for life. That's if they come home at all.

rudy,i finally got blogger to let me in. so glad to see you're letting the world know what you think. what i'd like to see more than armed insurrection -- revolutions rarely turn out well, you know -- is the spectacle of our presidents and congresscritters called to account before an informed, skeptical citizenry. of course, that requires a respectable educational system and a vigorous, independent press.

ok, forget i ever said it.. thanks for the reminder of trumbo's great book.
