|First of all this one is going to piss people off. But before you send
me death threats and a pox on my face, Remember this once was a "free"
country and this is just a view of mine. So read on and get pissed!
Well here's an idea folks. Anyone ever thought that the whole 9/11 thing
was just a scheme concocted by the Bush administration to boost his popularity?
Lets just check the facts and you can draw your own conclusions...
Picture 2001 pre 9/11. George Bush was considered a Pretzel choking Moron
who no one really liked. I know that I thought he was just a face. There
was no real action no freaky laws and his biggest controversy was that
he would spend working time on his ranch. In fact, I received countless
emails making fun of George Bush. Hell I had so many of the ones comparing
him to a monkey that I almost couldn't tell them apart anymore.
Then 9/11 happened. Yes folks this was a sad, sad, sad day in
America. I know myself I was watching my back and checking for suspicious
activity for months after 9/11. Hell I was even afraid to go to work for
awhile for fear, I'd be in a car bombing, or maybe a dirty bomb would go
off. Well George Bush came off like a star. Hell I even liked him for half
But like most people, I chalked it up as a fact of life. Terrorism happens(allthough
through my mind, I thought that if only 18 terrorists can kill thousands
of people and we declare war on Afganastan, then why is it a disease like
say aids, heart disease or cancer gets to run amok in America. If we spent
as much money trying to cure these, Just think of how good America would
look to people then. But I digress)
Then the Alert system was created. Wow for the first year it put the
fear of god into Americans. It was pretty much tied to holidays and the
anniversary of 9/11. Then it went to whenever the government decided that
the terrorists were "chattering" or when Bush's popularity rating was declining.
When American's started getting used to this and Bush's rating went
down,we decided to go to war on Iraq, and for what? Weapons of mass destruction?
come on, that's bunk. But it sure helped Bush again. His popularity went
up again. But when our troops weren't finding the supposed Weapons, his
rating started going down again. Then he caught Saddam Hussein. Yay good
for him. His ratings went up again. Now his ratings are going down again.
Mostly because he did not find any Weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq.
Yesterday on the news the were reports that they have Osama Bin Laden
Trapped in Pakistan. Have a feeling they won't "Catch" him until around
say oh, I don't know. October or NOvember since November is when we have
our next presidential elections. All though, if they catch Osama sooner,
I'd probably pack my bags for Canada. Because that probably means we will
have another Terrorist attact to boost Bush's poularity later in the year.
