This cant end soon enough...

I cannot wait for January 20th to put the last 8 years of incompetence and hell finally to an end.

This is the United States of America the last 8 years has wrought:

The new round of White House pardons announced late last night are Mr Bush's first since March, and come less than two months before the end of his presidency.

The beneficiaries' crimes include drugs conspiracy, tax evasion, poisoning bald eagles, dumping hazardous waste, bank embezzlement and theft of government property.

John Edward Forte, a Grammy Award-winning rapper, is arguably the best known of those pardoned. He was arrested at Newark International Airport in 2000 after being found with a briefcase containing $1.4m of cocaine and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.

And at the same time:

Ms. Amero, a substitute teacher prosecuted on felony charges after a malware-infected computer in her classroom began spewing ads for adult entertainment sites, agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, pay a $100 fine, and surrender her credentials to teach in the state of Connecticut. "I'm disappointed it ever got this far."

...

I just cant take much more of this.

Not saying Barack wont make bad decisions or do things I dont agree with, but at the end of the day it will just be nice to have someone else to complain about. An overwelming majority of Americans are crying "UNCLE", we're done, we want out of this spiral.

  1. Yeah, that evil Bush. Check out this one:

    Almon Glenn Braswell was pardoned of his mail fraud and perjury convictions, even while a federal investigation was underway regarding additional money laundering and tax evasion charges.[15] Braswell and Carlos Vignali each paid approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency. Hugh Rodham returned the payments after they were disclosed to the public.[16] Braswell would later invoke the Fifth Amendment at a Senate Committee hearing in 2001, when questioned about allegations of his having systematically defrauded senior citizens of millions of dollars.

    Ooooo, oooo, and this one:

    Oh wait, Bill Clinton Pardoned that guy. And Obama's entire cabinet is basically a recycled Clinton Administration. Wheee!

    I can't help it. I think I have a form of Tourettes.

    I have to agree though, I with we could just skip the next Month and a half and get on with it. It's going to be agonizing watching all these speeches from Bush and Obama and neither of them are really going to do anything for the next month and a half. Bleh.

  2. Yeah I'm certainly not saying that Bush has been the only person to ever pardon someone that was crazy guilty.

    Yeah this in-between time is agonizing.

  3. I am really trying to be positive about Obama. I think he has a lot to bring to the table and, frankly, even if he is as liberal and (eeek) socialist as some people claim, he isn't going to be able to swing the entire country to the left.

    Hopefully his strengths will serve him well and he will NOT rule, but lead from the center. Not that I would be that disappointed if he blundered his entire term and got impeached and I could say I told you so to all you... BAHHH be positive! Damnit!

    hehehe

    If you really want to get weirded out you should read into the Department of Homeland Security's plans for us during a huge pan flu outbreak.

  7. He's sorry. So sorry.

    "I'm sorry it's happening, of course," Bush said in a wide-ranging interview with ABC's "World News," which was airing Monday. "Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s. On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in. And if we need to be in more, we will."



    The problem, George, is that Americans don't WANT you to be IN. We want you to get the hell OUT. AHHH! These bailouts are making me insane.

  8. I think it's still hard to tell exactly what the "mob" wants.

    That being said, I would venture to guess that they would be for government assisting companies if it made sense. Trouble is with that is that virtually no one can agree what makes sense.

  9. Well my big problem is bailing out companies that went bankrupt due to rather obvious mismanagement. You don't fix the problem by throwing more money at them, you just perpetuate the idea that the government won't _allow_ them to fail, so then the entire business model shifts. Decisions are made less for what is good for the company and more for what is good for a few crooked CEOs.

    Bleh.

  10. Wow, a Michael Moore video I actually enjoyed! Hehehe.

    I think it's a little misleading to say it's illegal to be gay in some states... I mean, it's illegal to get oral sex many places. Sodomy laws may not have changed but I don't really think they're enforced.

    I love seeing people take these sick hateful bastards to task, though. And the way they did it was hilarious.

  11. Sodomy laws have been stricken Unconstitutional nationally after the invalid arrest of a gay couple having sex in the privacy of their own home.

    The raids and police harassment still continue to this day in many places. People have voted to deny them rights they already enjoyed while living in a country who's highest law says ALL men are created equal. They are taxed by the same government (state and nationally) that does not support their fair and equal rights and in many cases chastises and abhors them.

    To say or allude that LGBT citizens are as equally free as their heterosexual counterparts is not only ignorant but dangerous.

  12. I say gay people should have the same rights to never have oral sex that us married guys do!

  13. Fail

    Remember back in the day I used to love the Animutations? Well the kid behind them, Neil Cicierega is also now known as Lemon Demon, the guy behind The Ultimate Shodown of Ultimate Destiny, Potter Puppet Pals, and other new awesomeness. I'm glad there are people like Neil out there making the internets good.
