State of the Union Address: 2008

     Thankfully we have less than a year left to put up with the fear-mongering hypocritical Constitution-destroyer known as George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States. Last night the bumbling idiot gave the final State of the Union Address of his tenure. Like his previous seven such speeches, it was chock full of bullshit. No matter what your affiliation (Republican, Democrat, Independent, Green, etc.), you cannot deny that his message was misleading and out of touch. G-Dubya continued to promote a permanent tax cut that doesn’t do much for most Americans. He tried yet again to justify the unwarranted war in Iraq by exploiting 9/11 and our hardworking troops. 43 also alluded to protecting communications companies from prosecution for their part in the Department of Justice’s warrantless wiretapping program (see video below). Georgie went through the motions like the lamest of all lame duck presidents. It was a re-hash of past speeches, doing nothing to challenge Americans to improve our situation and showing no signs of hope.
     Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas, gave the Democratic response to the State of the Union Address. Her message was good, but the delivery was incredibly boring and drab. In continuing the tradition John Kerry laid out in the 2004 Presidential election, I think the messenger left people uninspired. Virginia Senator Jim Webb did a much better job last year.
     Hopefully the next President can inspire the country and bring people together, regardless of party, as well as restore America’s image around the world. We need an end to divisive and polarizing politics.

  1. I have received a segnid for’ letter today from a company called Avon Client Services Limited run by from Trinity Place, Midland Drive, Sutton Coldfield B72 1TX. Tel: 07512048859, offering a320,195 for my RCI Points. Well over the top!! The letter came from the Administration Manager, James Ashworth. Anybody else heard from them? Have Googled them, no joy as a completions company. Have been scammed once and managed to get all my money back from the bank. Not likely to do this again without a thorough check on the company and never going to give out a fee first!
