Bush wondered aloud, “How did we get here?”
The crystal ball in my head has instructed me to share its opinion on how the final month of a pretentious Bush Administration contributes to the destruction of the America we knew. Our memories will fade and American History will put spin on the story from the vantage of some future historian who never lived it.
The New York Times front page series “
Articles in this series are exploring the causes of the financial crisis.”
Mr. Bush dismissed warnings from people inside and outside the White House that housing prices were inflated and that a foreclosure crisis was looming. And when the economy deteriorated, Mr. Bush and his team misdiagnosed the reasons and scope of the downturn; as recently as February, for example, Mr. Bush was still calling it a “rough patch.”
This NYTimes series is very enlightening about how the American Titanic got to meet the iceburg. The insatiable, profiteering attitude and avaricious behavior of the ‘aristocratic’ Republican Overlords. (The social structure of the Middle Ages was organized round the system of Feudalism). You will see the frantic manipulations of a president who realizes his “Legacy” will be so much less than he counted on. His American Vassals are on to his scheme. His pitiful efforts to whitewash the American and Global disaster he created are useless. Throwing his corporate dogs his last handful of bones is criminal (ooops, wrong analogy, back to the Titanic). The few leaky liferafts available on our Titanic are being issued to elitist corporations. Example:
FOR a supposedly lame-duck president, George Bush has been awfully busy in recent weeks. Or rather, his administration has been working overtime, on a controversial slate of rules that will retain the force of law long after he leaves office. Today is the deadline to ensure that they take effect before Barack Obama is sworn in.
The lame-duck Republican team is rushing through radical measures, from coal waste dumping to power stations in national parks, that will take months to overturn.
Bush issues a headliner band aide to the American Auto Industry hoping to stall the full impact of the iceburg he crashed us in to at warp speed. This pitiful gesture can be used by us, the victims, to cringe and take a defensive posture before the icy waters swallow our dreams. My Republican friends voices change as the cold water rises above their knees. Republicans, too, are becoming jobless, and faced with merciless reality. Those humanitarian government agencies, that were so degraded and reduced by Republican judgmentalism, are now being grabbed for as their last lifeline. Surprise. The funding for these agencies is almost backrupt by misappropriation of taxpayer dollars. In this new world, pulling the plug on your own lifeboat by choosing war, is the stupidest lesson we could ever have to re-learn. Unless the elite are seeking to re-locate to another country more compatible with their view of society. To all those with a medieval view of inhuman society, I suggest they move to Zimbabwe or better yet, Darfur.
