Why I Hate Donald Rumsfeld

If American soldiers are found wearing Dragon Skin- an alternative to military-issued body armor--even if they purchased it with their own funds-- if they are killed or wounded while wearing Dragon Skin, the government has refused to honor GI death benefits or pay for the Veteran's health care.
Dragon Skin is said to be the most reliable body armor in the world.
The Pentagon doesn't give a fuck about the safety of the soldiers they send off to battle.
Some lobbyist for some shittier brand of body armor made a backroom deal with the Pentagon- and it's all about the money, honey.
Donald Rumsfeld cares as much about our military as the Taliban does.
May he get everything he deserves...in Hell.

I wish Cindy Sheehan would glom onto the Dragon Skin scandal.
This issue needs to be in the news daily until the Pentagon supplies Dragon Skin armor to every American soldier in the field.
It's the least those chickenhawk sons of bitches could do.

I brought it up a couple of months ago..but I only got two readers..but yes, its disgusting and should be circulated more. They are giving the soldiers letters warning them of this before they ship out..fuckers.

I could get roasted for this, but Cindy ain't doing a whole lot of anything. I take nothing away from her,I am just saying..

Not really on topic, but since W has lately decided to take questions from some less rabidly republican audiences, I thought it might be useful to start a questions4george.com website. You could run it like those "am I hot?" sites where people look at the question and then rate it. Those connected enough with reality to want to do something other than clap when they get in the audience with Bush could consult this website to help prep themselves in the case they get the opportunity to put one to the dimwit-in-chief. There's already a questions4w.com blog out there, but it's not interactive.

Let me give an example that puts me slightly more on topic:

"Mr. President, can you tell me where loyalty ends and accountability begins? I pose this question with the secretary of defense in mind."

And then you rate it on a scale of 1 to 5 or ten or just good or bad. Cream floats to the top.

Do you folks think this would be useful? Fun?

U Thant (love the name)
I think that's an excellent idea for a blog. Once you set it up, come back and tell us about it and we'll link you up.

Here's my question:

"Mr. President, there have been many allegations over the years that you have used cocaine, marijuana and other illegal drugs.
Are you now or have you ever used illegal substances?"

As for Cindy Sheehan, I agree, Dusty, she isn't much of a verbal force against the war.
I think her rather plain appearance and simple words have served as a symbol of the thousands of mothers who've lost children in Iraq.
A speechwriter wouldn't hurt.

Hey..speaking of Cindy,you heard she's back at the "Ranch" right?

This is what I think she does best.

Karen Zipdrive said...

She is a pretty effective camper/protester.
More power to her.

Several Generals are demanding Rummy's resignation, and/or resigning because of his ineffectual leadership.
Clyde is sticking up for...guess who?

dusty said...

Clyde..that poor freak..he just can't admit when the shit hits the fan can he?

In a perfect world, "The Don" and his wingnut and neo-con enablers and partners would end up in Abu Ghraib for life (long as it lasts, that is) and their tormenters would be the same people the guards tortured! Since it isn't a perfect world, enjoy the following joke I came across a while back:


Cheney is arrested for war crimes and put in a cell. He looks up and sees that his cellmate is Saddam Hussein, who is washing some clothes and standing around in those tighty whiteys of his.

Cheney's eyes bulge as he notices Saddam has obviously been doing lots of weightlifting.

Saddam turns to Cheney and glares for a moment. Then he says, "Cheney. Husband or the wife?"

Cheney gulps, and stammers, "W-what d-d-did you s-s-s-say?"

Saddam says, "I said, do you want to be the husband or the wife in this prison cell?"

Cheney thinks to himself, "I never realized Saddam was such a big guy. He'll kick my ass if I don't go along." So he says to Saddam, "I'll be the husband."

Saddam says, "Good. I will be the wife, then," and turns back to his wash.

Cheney sighs in relief.

Saddam turns back to Cheney and says, "Now come over here, get on your knees, and suck your wife's cock."

I had no idea you were so devout!

BigSis said...

There's a great quote going around:
"Bushism is a cult."

That's so true. Complete with a delusional leader insulated from people who may criticize him, and all the nuts who follow him blindly.

As for Rummy, his head is so far up Bush's ass there's really no way to remove him until Bush's ass leaves office.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Bushism as a cult...ya know, I hate to say it but his lemmings' adoration for him does sort of defy reason.

Who's Lulu calling devout?

dusty said...

I was wondering who our dear Lulu was calling devout also..and a devout what? :P
