Impeach Bush

It
really is true that if you Google for "Impeach Bush,"
you get 42,000 hits, actually I just got 42,600. There's a lot of
impeaching sentiment out there, but where will it take us?

I
predict not very far. Nothing takes us very far. There's that damnable
thing of the cut-off between the Beltway and the people, between
the White House and the truth, between the media and any residual
sense of the commonweal. We are living now in a total cultural slum
with no effective communication between slum lords and slum dwellers.

Some
features of the slum: ubiquitous pornography, not just on the Internet
but at church and in the mall as the slender young ladies (and some
not so slender) prance down the aisles with midriff bared and breasts
haltered for maximum effect; horrible "music" that nobody
listens to, it's just unpleasant noise in the background, it seems,
everywhere – restaurants, doctors' offices, gyms, "hold"
on telephone lines, etc.; home-delivered newspapers that bring the
paper boys and the citizens up to date on the latest permissions
on sodomy – how eagerly everyone waited for that indication of what's
OK from the Nine Buzzards in Black (I always think of the Nazguls
when I read about SCOTUS); raw political and military power – lawless
power – used to destroy a nation that was no threat to us; an economy
more or less in the tank on what appears a permanent basis, thanks
largely to federal interventions and federal phony money games that
are always the wrong thing; the Blob in D.C. swelling and heaving
and emitting gross gasses while sucking into itself more and more
of the substance of the citizenry; nearly everyone (excepting maybe
those 42,600 websites) dead asleep to the fact It Is Happening Here.
Don't ask for whom the bell tolls, baby, it's got our name on it.
It's playing our tune.

Out
of this the will and tactic is to emerge to impeach Bush? I doubt
it. We know that all governments study to manage their peoples.
We know in particular that the governments of the "developed"
nations have, since World War II, invested heavily in techniques
of psychological warfare – against their own subjects. We know that
the media and the Bushies are in close league. We know the big oil
and munitions corporations are standing by with buckets to catch
the cash as it flows their way from any and all wars. We know the
taxpayers are subjected to a laser stream of hypnotic messages about
things they can buy to achieve physical and psychic fulfillment,
and told not to fret themselves over things they can't possibly
understand, such as the need to permanently occupy Iraq, send billions
to Israel, and stash our troops all over the world, despite the
fact that the world increasingly would like them all to go the hell
home. And so on. I weary as I try to recite this stuff.

None
of this of course is the result of a conspiracy. OK, then let me
just say that it looks planned. I see no way all this awful
stuff could be going on if it were not being sedulously pushed,
financed, and coordinated. We now know the recent war was a put-up
job, just as so many of us suspected before it happened. What makes
you think the sodomy decision, that further power grab by the Malignant
Nine, is not just another item in a deliberate destabilization campaign
that meets with huzzahs of approval in the highest places? It was
an accident? It just came out that way, the way you toss
a coin? The court was going to turn down a chance to void a state
law and insert itself as Ultimate Ruler? If you think that, then
I have a bridge to sell you. Ditto for the Michigan race preference
case. All of it wretched bad law that serves some agendas but not
yours and mine, not if you are reading this.

Of
course if we could succeed in impeaching Bush, another World Conquering
Hero would emerge to take his place and probably prove him or herself
worse, on the principal that you have flown from the devil you know
to the devil you know not of. Hillary anyone? Jefferson was right;
we have gone way too long without another Declaration, another Tea
Party, another brave stand by the Minutemen. Perhaps we're not up
to it anymore, but I refuse to think that. I have great faith still
in my countrymen, bamboozled and bedazzled as I hold them now to
be. At some point they will get their backs up – I think that will
finally happen when they see that the present manipulators mean
them and their families dire harm right here at home, in their workplaces
and playplaces and domiciles. Then I think the stand will be made.

Meanwhile,
I cast one vote: impeach Bush.
