On the 5th Anniversary of the war: I am the decider

March 14, 2008

showletter.jpegthedecider.jpgShocking and dumbfounding, isn’t it, that we are arriving on the 5th anniversary of this unnecessary bloodbath called the “War on Iraq.”

Protest the war and show your disgust with the current administration by joining in tomorrow Saturday at one of the actions taking place all over the world. In Ventucky, several carpools are being organized by ANSWER–meet at the Ventucky Coffee Bean & Tea at the corner of Telephone and Main (near Kinkos) at 10am.

Show Bush and his ilk that he is “not the decider”–this is a democracy and we the people are the deciders. Stop the bloodshed, stop the destruction of the earth–speak up! Speak out!iraqdeaths.jpeg

click on the picture of Bush as the egghead to hear the background and the song “I am the Decider” (you can find the Beatle’s version in this post “Everything’s Hitched to Everything Else”)

I am me and Rummy’s he, Iraq is free and we are all together
See the world run when Dick shoots his gun, see how I lie
I’m Lying…

Sitting on my own brain, waiting for the end of days
Corporation profits, Bloody oil money
I’m above the law and I’ll decide what’s right or wrong
I am the egg head, I’m the Commander, I’m the Decider

Baghdad city policeman sitting pretty little targets in a row
See how they die when the shrapnel flies see mothers cry
I’m Lying…I’m Ly-ing…I’m Lying…I’m Ly-ing

Yellow cake uranium, imaginary WMD’s
Declassifying facts, exposing secret agents
Tax cuts for the wealthy leaving all the poor behind


Sitting in the White house garden talking to the Lord
My thoughts would be busy busy hatching If I only had a brain

    really funny..liked it. BTW see below

    “Even with the September 11 attacks included in the count, the number of Americans killed by international terrorism since the late 1960s (which is when the State Department began counting) is about the same as the number of Americans killed over the same period by lightning, accident-causing deer, or severe allergic reaction to peanuts.”

    ’bout time we declared war on peanut growers..!

    i hadn’t heard those stats…but they sure point to the misguidedness of this war don’t they?

    I think ‘misguided’ is way too generous as far as adjectives are concerned..
