It used to be that if you had a problem you would blame the Jews, or the Blacks, or the Japanese, or the Germans, or the Russians, or the Mexicans. Today if you have a problem like the war in Iraq, the war in Lebanon, the war in Afghanistan, global warming, record deficits, bankrupt social security, under funded education or a small mole on your arm with a ragged outline and a purplish reddish black color, you blame President Bush. Why so? President Bush should deserve more than that.
The President of The United States of America George W. Bush is reviled by the people of Earth today including by the majority of Americans. His job approval ratings have dropped so low that an oil miner would have a hard time finding them at the bottom of the well. It’s hard to believe that the very same people who elected him President twice hold him in the same regard that they hold J.M.K., John Mark Karr. How could people be so fickle? How many barrels does it take to fill a pickle? Is Laura Bush the burning bush, or is that Hilary Bush? If your name isn’t Bush or Clinton then you aren’t getting into the White House. Old habits die hard, just ask Sam Nunn. America descended from Great Britain and they still love their royalty. Prince Charles said that in his next life he wanted to come back as Camilla Parker Bowles’ bicycle seat. He would be better off praying that in his next life he doesn’t look like Dumbo.
People are ruled by their emotions. If something feels good then they do it and if something feels bad they shun it. Accepting blame for your own mistakes and shortcomings feels bad and so we don’t do it. Instead we scapegoat others. Michael Jackson was idolized by America like the golden cow at Mount Sinai until he had a minor run in with the law. Michael says in his hit song, “I’m starting with the man in the mirror, I’m asking him to change his ways, no message could have been any clearer, if you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and make that change.”
Everyone wants to change themselves. Nobody is happy with who they are. Amazon is shipping out self help books faster than Pfizer is shipping out valium. Television commercials bombard us constantly with the same message: “If you don’t buy our product, religion, ideology etc. you’re going to have a nervous breakdown at any moment and wind up in Hell forever.” It’s gotten so bad that the biggest problem in the Sudan today is the E.D. crisis. The world welcomed the recent JonBenet Ramsey fiasco because it gave us all a chance to temporarily take our minds off of the 50 wars raging across the globe and watch the 6 year old Angel sing and dance in her beautiful costumes. It made us feel for a moment that perhaps there is justice in this world. Now that justice turned out to be an illusion we have all been thrown back into the paranoia pit. People are so stressed out today around the world that if they didn’t have President Bush to blame for all of their problems they would be throwing themselves in front of subway trains. You can’t even take mascara onto an airplane anymore for fear that you are going to use it to bring down the Sears Center.
We scapegoat others for our problems as a psychological defense mechanism to alleviate stress. The Old Testament is the Holy Scripture of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In the Old Testament God commanded that once every year on the Day of Atonement for our sins, the High Priest take a goat out into the desert. He laid his hands on the goat’s head and transferred all of the sins of the Jewish nation into the goat and then sent it out into the desert to carry away the sins of the people. Christianity modified this in the New Testament story of Jesus Christ. Jesus took all of the sins of all Christians past, present and future onto himself and off and away of every person who says, “Jesus I believe in you please forgive me.”
The Muslim people believe in the Old Testament, the New Testament, Jesus the Messiah, and they tacked on the Koran. The Muslims have perfected atoning for sin into an art form, praying to God of Mount Sinai aka God the Father, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, Allah (God of Mount Sinai in Arabic), Elohim, Adonai, (God of Mount Sinai in Hebrew) on prayer rugs facing Mecca five times a day for God to wash them clean of sin so that they can go to Heaven. The Muslims, Christians and Jews are so guilt ridden and so uptight that they make Woody Allen look stable.
The World today has Christianity, Islam and Judaism each with Holy Bibles commanding them to massacre every man, woman and child outside of their group for God of Mount Sinai. God is calling upon each of his 3 children to wipe out his other 2 children. This is why we have the Middle East Crisis and the war on terror aka the war between the Christians, Muslims and Jews. George W. Bush did not write these Bibles. This conflict is 4,000 years old. The Assyrians (Syria) conquered 10 tribes of Israel 3,000 years before George W. Bush was born. Babylon (Iraq) conquered the other 2 tribes of Israel 2,500 years before George W. Bush was born. George W. Bush is not to blame for this conflict.
George W. Bush is also not responsible for global warming. President Bush is not a scientist. He didn’t invent the automobile or the factories or begin the industrial revolution. Al Gore is the leading environmentalist on Earth. When he was Vice President he couldn’t get one single Senator to vote for Kyoto.
You can say a lot of things about President Bush but you can never say that he isn’t the ultimate patriot. He is faced with one single question today: “Is it better for Shiite Iran to control and own the entire Middle East, 2/3 of the world’s oil, all the nuclear weapons the oil money can buy, or The United States of America?” Would it have been better for Saddam Hussein to have owned the Middle East today? How can people say that Saddam didn’t have weapons of mass destruction? He used them on his own Kurdish people. He was lusting for nuclear weapons. When Iranian nuclear bombs begin raining down on New York and Miami and Chicago and Los Angeles, then tell me that President Bush was wrong. Then cry about the 3,000 brave soldiers who gave their lives to prevent that day. God Bless President George W. Bush and Laura Bush and their family, and the people of The United States of America who in their wisdom elected President Bush twice. The next President of The United States of America will be Jeb Bush, the rightful heir to the throne.
