If you Republicans were so proud of George Bush and his accomplishments as President, why the hell didn't you have him speak at your convention? Ex-presidents are ALWAYS invited to speak. They bring cache and legitimacy to the event. They become the elder statesmen of their party and often still have power to direct the party and contribute to the discussion. All Bush did was run from the White House for the cover of his Mommy's apron strings in Texas. I don't see him out helping the world or even endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. You would think it would be an automatic thing but such an endorsement is the last thing Romney wants.
With Bush Jr there are no foundations to help the poor in undeveloped countries - no Clinton Initiative. If you were proud of Bush you would be cheering him at each and every Romney event which he would occasional show up to speak at.
I know that there is a large Hillbilly contingent who will never see Bush for the unqualified idiot he was and we are all paying for the economic crash that HE started by keeping both the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq off the books. This was done deliberately because they knew the next president would no doubt be Democratic and the GOP now had a way to pre-sabotage President Obama from day one.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
