America goes to the movies


Some of the best movie lines stick with you. The American electorate has said “I’ll get you and your little Cheney too”. The wizard of OZ turned out OK and the end of an eight year nightmare is coming soon.

In one of the Star Trek films a Klingon that had killed Kirk’s son and had been haunting Kirk throughout the film was hanging on the edge of a cliff and Kirk the humanitarian was seen stomping on the Klingons fingers shouting, I have had enough of you!!!!

After that image popped into my mind, another very similar scene from another film came to mind. It’s an image that popped into my mind and caused me to keep hitting the replay button. I enjoyed the end product of my imagination just as much each time around.

The second image from the film AIR FORCE ONE, with Harrison Ford playing the heroic American president whose plane is hijacked by a bunch of terrorists is in the same vein. The head terrorist shoots a woman simply to terrorize the rest of the people aboard the plane.

Near the end of the film, there’s a showdown between the head terrorist and the president next to the open door of the plane’s cargo hold. At the final moment of this fight, Harrison Ford releases all that holds the terrorist on the plane and kicks him, sending the bad guy off to test landing with no chute, while growling, “Get off my plane!”

Those images popped into my mind the other day. In my mind, We the People of the United States are finally in control, and George W. Bush was the guy who’d hijacked our plane.

I just love the idea of kicking him off to face the judgment of history, while snarling at him, “Get out of our White House!” Will history treat him well?

Frankly, I don’t give a damn.

President Bush links SCHIP and health coverage to tax cuts for the rich.



WASHINGTON — President Bush yesterday warned that if his plan to lower taxes for the upper income brackets is rejected, he will not fund any amount of money for SCHIP or any “free riders” on the economy. Instead he will increase taxes on the middle class, raise college tuition, decrease spending on school construction and shrink health care coverage.

Mr. Bush is proposing using revenue saved from SCHIP expansion and funds saved by not prosecuting any civil rights violations, added to tax increases for the middle class to close the Federal budget shortfall and fund additional tax cuts for those making over $1,000,000.00 per year.

While President Bush has been the butt of many jokes, his speech making abilities were never in doubt as he made fiery speech describing the pain failure to pass this bill would have on an unrepresented minority. A minority so small even the IRS does not collect taxes from them.

Mr. Bush made an impassioned speech describing the agony of losing millions of dollars of income due to so called fair taxation. His story of a man no longer able to give a Lexus and an undocumented maid to every guest at his daughters wedding brought tears to some eyes.

He described the proposed tax cut as one of several relief measures to soften the impact of a souring economy. If even the “little people” have to cut down on McDonalds and beer you must ask yourself to picture the fear that at some point you might earn so little that you might be forced to pay taxes.

For too long have the wealthy been asked to support the so called working man with demands for wages, health care, retirement, and safe working conditions!

Employers have had enough of these unreasonable demands. Why should those who only work share the wealth of those who create wealth? His tax cut is described as trying to reach out to help a minority, only the top 1% of income earners in the country. The tax cut would only return an estimated $177 Billion to this small group, but as Mr. Bush said “At least it is a gesture of caring”.

Anyone that has been here before will realize this story has taken some license with reality. To put it another way, I made it all up. Hope you enjoyed “The news”.
