State of the Union Simplified
A fellow blogger's view by the
Cherry Blossom King...
So. I watched Mr. Bush's speech last night. For those of you who might have missed it, here were some of the high points:
We can only achieve peace by pursuing unending war
We can only save our freedom by giving up our liberties
We can only fix our half a trillion dollar budget deficit by collecting less revenue and spending more money
We can only grow our devastated economy by renewing our commitment to the principles that crashed it in the first place
The three million jobs lost since 2000 pale in importance to the 1000 created last month
We can only preserve the sanctity of marriage by amending the Constitution to deny rights to homosexuals
We can only insure good medical care by limiting malpractice lawsuits
We can only show our commitment to America's schoolchildren by denying schools funding while promoting sexual abstinence and mandatory drugs testing
Or, to simplify only slightly:
War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.
And did anybody else notice that he never mentioned Osama bin Laden? And what about those WMDs in Iraq? Hello?
