George W. Bush: Once a serial killer...
My friend JoAnn recently e-mailed me some unbelievably grim statistics -- and also a question. "There are currently two million orphans in Afghanistan, as well as five million orphans in Iraq. How many years of war does it take to produce that many orphans?" http://edition.cnn.com/video/?/video/bestoftv/2012/02/08/exp-bs-namdar-afghan-roadtrip.cnn, and http://www.alternet.org/world/70886/?page=entire
And speaking of orphans, I'm currently reading a murder mystery about serial killers -- wherein the author states that once someone becomes a serial killer, that person pretty much stays on this particular chosen career path for the rest of his life. And this rather grim concept immediately got me to thinking about George W. Bush, a man who could never resist killing people. Is he too still up to his old tricks? Or has he finally reformed? I wonder.
According an extremely "softball" interview with Bush in AARP magazine last year, GWB is now just a well-meaning average guy with a big smile, innocently puttering around in his garden. http://www.aarp.org/politics-society/newsmakers/info-11-2010/george-bush-interview.html;andstart/0/filter/:/:/;andstart/0/filter/:/:/;andstart/0/filter/:/:/;andstart/0/filter/:/:/.html
GWB is just your smiling average guy -- with just one small exception. Bush is personally responsible (along with his smiling father, Pappy's smiling friends and George's smiling successors) for creating SEVEN MILLION orphans in Afghanistan and Iraq. And that's not even counting all the orphans that he (and Pappy Bush, Slick Willie, Dick Cheney and Barak Obama) have paid others create in Palestine, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, etc. -- not to mention the rest of the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMvPlkyBOBQ
I immediately canceled my subscription to AARP.
But my question about this particular serial killer still remains. What, exactly, is GWB up to these days? Is he really trying to resist the temptation to go out and create even more orphans? Or is he now finally able to rest comfortably -- knowing that his successor is still keeping up that fast-track scheme of orphan-creation for him.
Perhaps even at this very moment, our George is happily thinking to himself as he sings in the shower, "Iran has WMDs too. We really do need to bomb Iran and create even more orphans. Guess I'd better give Barry a call."
PS: And what about all the orphans that Bush, his colleagues and successors are happily creating here in America too? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PE5V4Uzobc

Advertizements for myself: In these hard times of brutal (and illegal) corporatist ball-busting socialism-for-the-rich-only, I am doing whatever I can to make a spare dollar. Here are some of my current alternate-economy schemes that never seem to work -- but I keep hoping!
Need an actor to play an older woman in your movie? Then I'm your man! I can portray all kinds of older women -- from judges, business execs and other insane zombies to bag ladies, cancer patients, kindly grandmothers and dying patients in rest homes. I've played them all. So send me a script and let's do this. Hollywood, here we come!
Are you a plaintiffs' attorney who is tired of writing those pesky personal injury settlement briefs all the time? No problem! I can write them for you. Years of experience. And pay me only if you win the case.
Fortune Telling: If you scan a photocopy of the lifeline on the palm of your dominant hand, e-mail it to me at jpstillwater(at)yahoo.com with "Madame Jane" in the subject line, and then slip five dollars into my PayPal account, I can (and will) get Madame Jane to tell you approximately how long you are gonna live -- and also have her throw in some stuff about quality-of-life as well.
I recently got my Notary Public commission!
Need a Notary Public? Have seal, will travel. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll stamp your document, make it official and only charge $10. Of course if you live outside of Berkeley, I may have to charge travel expenses -- but am well worth it!
I also wrote a book about going on Hajj (also included as a chapter in "Bring Your Own Flak Jacket," but this book is cheaper -- but it's worth buying them both!) My book on the Hajj is so outstanding that I bet even Christian fundamentalists will love it! Please buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Mecca-Hajj-Lessons-Islamic-School/dp/0978615700/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238806637&sr=1-2
