– Bumper sticker of the week: Stop mad cowboy disease.

– Quote of the week: "Let us not become the evil that we deplore." Barbara Lee, casting the lone vote in Congress against Bush ‘s use—of—force resolution on 9/14/01.

– The Bush administration badmouths France: An astonishing 85 percent of the French public oppose a preemptive strike on Iraq. Tired of Bush’s bullying, they remind us Bush was appointed President of the United States, not France.

– America goes off the deep—end: Any country that pushes so hard for war is a country destined to lose the respect of the world community.

– Destroying Iraq is good for the economy: Pushing the ideology of Bushocracy to its ultimate conclusion, secret bids have already been sought by the Bush administration to rebuild Iraq once we blow them into oblivion. And wouldn’t you know it, Halliburton and Bechtel were among the chosen few. These are both companies that make their living securing politically connected contracts from the government. VP Cheney was CEO of Halliburton from 1995—2000, and Bechtel is a dumping ground for ousted cabinet members waiting for their turn to come around again to join the administration as a cabinet member, usually for the 3rd or 4th time. Welcome to BushWorld, where scheming and conniving are commonplace, and the main objective is to make your rich friends richer, at the expense of us all.

– What I would do if the Supreme Court appointed me King of the U.S.A.:

• I would deport Bush, probably to Afghanistan. This would give him an opportunity to explain to the desert warriors why he blew up their country.

• I would allow for at least 7 or 8 queens.

• I would nationalize all big business, if for no other reason than to just watch their faces.

• I would make Galesburg an example of what not to do concerning economic development.

• There would be no military, no defense budget, no military retirements. All that money would be given to the poor. Anyway, who in their right mind would want to take over this mess?

• Bill Gates and the Wal—Mart Walton’s would be looking for work. Their money would go to start a national health—care plan.

• Non—profit organizations would be non—profit or non—existent.

• Doctors and lawyers and CEO’s would trade social positions with housekeepers, janitors, and waitresses.

• Bankers would be out of work. Loaning money would be illegal. You can only give it away, or perhaps I’ll allow some leeway for taking it away.

• All prisoners will be let go, and everyone living in gated communities will be imprisoned. I’m just trying to help with your safety.

• Everyone in Washington will be reassigned to Iraq. While that might be a bit dangerous, just think of the amount of character it will build?
