As the ignorant sniveling sycophants of the Bush Junta continuing shoving the heads ever further up their ass more people are beginning to question the wisdom of that policy.


I am happy to announce the WMD’s have been located. For months, we have been told WMD’s are out there. Because of WMD’s, our troops are still suffering casualties daily in Iraq. According to George Bush, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, and Condeleeza Rice, WMD’s pose a great threat to the world. Imagine how surprising it is to learn the WMD’s have been prolifterating right here in the good old U.S. of A.

Such weapons include psychological, political, and propagandizing devices. Those who launch the attacks know thousands could become more hopeless and apathetic, but their fundamental motive is to strike constant and continued fear and panic in millions of Americans. In an effort to better inform readers on the threat to America, this Weapons of Mass Deception Guideline is being offered.

“Perpetual War Makes Us Safer” Mindcontrol

History: Since September 11, 2001, we have been told by George W. Bush that we are at war, and that being at war will bring freedom and peace to the world.

Weapons: Exploitation of 9/11, the American flag, fundamentalist Christianity, the Republican Party

Delivery System: Media outlets- especially television news ; AM talk radio- especially Rush Limbaugh; most members of Congress; the White House

Symptoms: Certitude, intolerance, banal speeches, right wing punditry passed as objective journalism, failure of public to express dissent due to fear of being called unAmerican.

Treatment: Perpetual War mindcontrol often takes months or years to take its toll. Voters often cannot pinpoint it right away, because many elected officials publicly claim to oppose it, but eventually captitulate to the will and wishes of George W. Bush by refusing to stand up to his wrongheaded ideas of pre-emptive and ceaseless military invasion.

During the Presidential debates of 2000, George W. Bush said, “ I would be very careful about using our troops as nation builders. I believe the role of the military is to fight and win war and therefore, prevent war from happening in the first place.” Shock and awe.

“It’s Not the Economy, It’s the War, Stupid” Germfare

History: For three years, we been told by Bush, the economy is getting better and will rebound soon. We have been told the largest tax cut in the history of our nation will benefit working middle-class Americans and that another interest rate cut will stimulate the economy.

We have been told the record number of personal bankruptcies do not matter and that the corporate criminals who blew our pension plans will be be punished. We have been told the growing unemployment rate is only a temporary problem. Blah blah blah blah blah.

Weapons: Distortion of Facts about who is benefitting from tax cuts, attempts to privatize retirement accounts, social security, and the healthcare system.

Delivery System: Alan Greenspan; The Wall Street Journal; MSNBC; Financial Talking Heads on television networks; the Republican Party; George W. Bush

Symptoms: Unemployment rates at a 9 year high, government surpluses lost to skyrocketing debt, elimination of taxes on corporations and wealthiest Americans, scamming of retirement funds, corporate criminal corruption with no penalties, millions with no healthcare or access to prescription drugs.

Treatment: Making the next generation as poor as church mice will not be an easy problem to solve. Driving this country further into debt by financing war without end, and tax cuts for only the wealthiest, is hard to treat, as long as Republicans are in power. The best treatment will be to elect leaders who want peace and prosperity for all Americans.

“United We Stand” Propaganda Warfare

History: The first use of propaganda warfare took place in 2000 after George W. Bush was selected by the Supreme Court justices who had been appointed by his father. The American public was told he was elected by voters, although all the votes were never counted.

Weapons: Complicity by media to allow fabrications, exagerrations, and cover ups of facts regarding corruption and deception by this government.

Delivery System: Most media outlets; the Republican Party; Ari Fleischer; the entire Bush cabinet, George W. Bush.

Symptoms: Confusion, Distrust, Apathy, Hopelessness

Treatment: Turn off and tune out. Question the Bush administration and start asking why the right wingers who voted for him say dissenters are un-American, un-patriotic, or un-Christian.

Register to vote and get facts on all candidates running for the Presidency.

By using Weapons of Mass Deception, the Bush administration has managed to tank the economy, put government into debt for generations, run roughshod over two centuries of civil liberities, and launch unending global war. This has happened in less than 30 months.

The American public should enact an Emergency Alert System that will be activated by all voters at the direction of the White House and Congress. It should be sent out to a national network of grassroots efforts coast to coast. Action should be taken immediately so that the Weapons of Mass Deception are detonated immediately.
