Draft Dodging Bastards

The most republican thing about Donny Drumpf is his draft avoidance.  Seems the guys that talk the toughest are the biggest weasels, as usual.

Dick Cheney: “I can’t go to army, daddy! I’ll go to college, get married, and start popping out kids asap, then complain of chest pains to keep those deferments coming. No Vietnam for me!”


I love guns. I hate commies. I want to go home.

Rush Limbaugh: “I can’t go to army, daddy! I’ll complain about a sore butthole and keep those deferments coming. Maybe some infections, some minor surgeries, that should do the trick. No Vietnam for me!”

Rush home with a sore ass.


George W Bush: “I can’t go to army, daddy! Since I can’t find anything physically wrong to trump up I’ll just hide in plain site. Join the Texas national guard and train on a previous-era jet that is being retired soon. Lay low, not sign up for a thing… maybe they’ll forget about me? Oh my, it worked!  No Vietnam for me!”


W Bush

Looking good, soldier. Bet you could really help the war effort. Nope, hiding in plain site.


Donald Trump (nee Drumpf): “I can’t go to army, daddy! Too rich. I have a sore foot. I’m not sure which one, or where it hurts, but it does, and with your money… that should do the trick…. hey it worked, like magic. Being a Trump is great!  No Vietnam for me!”

Drumpf in military school, so proud of his bowling trophy. You’re officer material, son. No? OK go home then.


Then there’s guys like my father and his crew – just coming out of high school, facing a life of toil in the factories, and the draft starts.

Them: “I can’t go to army! I’m a pacifist / free-thinker / entrepreneur / family man…  my family needs my income and my assistance, my community needs my production! I can’t go to Vietnam!”

Too bad, get your ass on the bus or face prison.


Over 3 million americans served in the Vietnam war. 2.2 million were drafted.

58,000 of our soldiers were killed, over 150,000 injured.

Republican politicians are sleazy bastards. When it really matters, with lives on the line, they are ghosts. Sore asses and bad feet and migraines.

Some things never change.

Pro Torture, Pro Deferment Republicans

Donny says he’s pro-torture:

“I said they’re chopping off our heads in the Middle East. They want to kill us. They want to kill us. They want to kill our country. They want to knock out our cities. And don’t tell me it doesn’t work. Torture works, okay folks?…Believe me, it works.”

When asked if he’s reinstate water-boarding, and other “enhanced interrogation” used during the Bush years..

“Absolutely,” Trump said, as he has said before. But there was more.

“I said I’ll approve it immediately, but I’ll make it also much worse.”

I would love to see Donny thrown in jail for some of the things he advocates. The man understands very little about American values. I’d also like to see him waterboarded but that would be illegal.

It’s sick that he says it, and it’s sick that most of his audience cheers like rabid dogs.  “Fuck the constitution! We’re scared!” the mindless dolts shout.

 


 

 

There is one way Trump is very republican – his daddy kept him out of Vietnam. He got multiple deferments, like most republican war mongers, when it was his time to serve. His daddy greased the wheels a bit and little donny had sore heals and couldn’t go to war — just like W, Cheney, Rush, Newt, and most other Republican politicians. Talk the talk but can’t walk the walk.

Aren’t I a handsome soldier? 4 deferments later, I never served. But I got this picture.


 

 

So I guess we are supposed to be more scared of ISIS than Al-Quaeda? The new boogey-man?

Trump obviously is. He knows a free lunch when he sees one.

No one in America wants to say how ISIS was formed. As usual they want to blame Obama (thanks Obama!) , but if you study you will find that most of ISIS’s leadership are the Ba’athist military members that used to run Iraq’s army for Saddam.

220px-Saddam_Hussein_and_Hassan_al-Bakr_1978

Ba’athist Saddam Hussein and the guy he was about to replace, 1978.

When Bush/Cheney invaded Iraq in 2003 and the Iraqi army folded we had no plan for them. We prepared nothing for them. We wouldn’t take their loyalty oath and let them stay on post for us. We didn’t find them new positions, labor perhaps. We wouldn’t imprison them. We wouldn’t hold them for more than a few days. We wouldn’t pay them equivalent to their army paycheck to stay home. We wouldn’t ship them to the other side of the country, or out of the country. None of the above.

In fact we banned all Iraqi’s from being in the Ba’ath party at all. Many of them were teachers, doctors, lawyers, business leaders, as well as soldiers. We just took their guns, banned their jobs, told them we’d kill them if we saw them on post again, and left them alone.

Guess what they did? Thousands of trained, armed, nationalistic types sitting around for years watching their country fall into more chaos. ISIS was born. Half of Syria and Iraq were ripe for the taking, especially since the US took out Saddam and the rest of his power structure in Baghdad, and everyone knew they would be leaving soon, surge or not.

ISIS isn’t Obama’s fault. It’s origins can be seen with the botched invasion and occupation of Iraq from 2003-2008. Staying in Iraq and killing hundreds of thousands more would not have corrected the situation. In fact the body count has been much smaller since Obama took command.

Also don’t forget about who took out Bin Laden, the last republican boogie-man. Watching republican idiots try to explain how W deserves the credit here is amazing.

The True Story of the Iraq War

RC: 1100: Phone call to Prime Minister Spidla of the Czech Republic to inform and to thanks for support of Iraq policy. OVP

US Vice President Dick Cheney makes a phone call to Prime Minister Spidla of the Czech Republic to inform and to thank for support of Iraq policy, 3/19/2003.

Here’s a behind the scenes account of how, why, and who the US ended up in a huge war with Iraq 10 years ago.

Guess what – no surprises here. This guy is telling the truth almost exactly as I remember it, and myself and similar minded people were telling everyone that would listen how this was going down. Anyone who tried to shout down or otherwise invalidate my opinion, read it and weep. Over a hundred thousand dead. Weep, indeed. Continue reading

I’ve Been Down On Bended Knee – War Launches

WAR


 

Way back in the day, my folks used to rock this album and it was plenty worn out by the time I inherited it.

Life marches on. The funk will survive just like it always does. My granny turns 97 this weekend so I might just be along for the long ride on the blue marble. Perhaps I’ll take up asteroid target practice on the back 40?


 

War

Promises Kept

In case you missed it… my president did the right thing yet again.

Barrack Hussein Obama is being completely underestimated and ignored again. This man could be the finest US president in ages but he seems to still be struggling to escape the ditch the country was driven into by his predecessor. If unemployment stays high he will have trouble getting a second term. I notice Republican presidents always seem to pin economic troubles on the former regime but Democrats just take the blame no matter their role.

In foreign policy, Obama and Clinton have been outstanding. By considering the muslim extremists a criminal organization again (as opposed to the infidels on the wrong end of a holy war) Obama and the rest of the world has made huge progress fighting this menace since 2009. The Libyan revolution was a delicate balancing act that appears headed towards an acceptable outcome. And don’t forget — the boogie man was capped in the chest by our finest special forces, just as any true american leader would have managed to accomplish eight years ago.

Simplify If You Want, But Remain Accurate aka Obama Takes Out Osama

Of course we are all talking about, and adjusting to, the big news of the day.

66 years to the day the last boogie man got his, Obama ordered the strike that most americans have been waiting for.


Obama_and_Biden_await_updates_on_bin_Laden

Obama, Biden, Clinton, Gates, and other top military advisors watch in Washington as our troops covertly land in Pakistan next to Osama’s house.


I never wanted war with Iraq and I never wanted to pay for bringing Afghanistan closer to the 20th century. Just about every one of my friends who would identify as an american liberal believed the same.

The raw emotions of 9/11, the fear marketing perfected by Karl Rove and Fox News, and the general ignorance of world affairs suffered by most americans led us into this delusion that we can declare a military war on what is in effect a criminal organization.

You don’t use marines to fight the mafia. If you don’t understand why I can’t help you. Continue reading

Spring has sprung!

Green-alley-in-spring-park


So its been a long while i know
But much has been happening around me
Since i last opened my space
And your face to my reality

A new studio has sprung
Bigger harder stronger than the last one
The Flux-adel Recording Division
Is open for business. As they say,
Recording is progress

2merica is as vital as ever
Better late than never
El motto de skorpions!
Pedal hard my darlings
Cuz the devil is on our tail

Too many corporate bands biting
Our sound style idea hope
I ain’t mad at this compliment
It’s my fave way to cope
These days.

Although i admit no shortage of hope
In town and around the globe
I am watching the former foreign fear peddlers
Spin themselves into an American
Dream turned nightmare for their corporate sponsored
Worker fearing apocalyptic vision of our very beautiful
Present. Tense sense of relief.
And oh yeah we started a bad ass new band.

The Bushes have quietly waved
Goodbye and returned to Texas
and we survived.
God Bless us all, hallelujah!
Only stronger and perhaps
Smarter… yeah right
But at least our new prez
Don’t get stage fright
And talks to us like we’ve actually
Been walking on this earth more than a decade

Whenever You Feel Blue, Take A Breath Again

Midterms have come and gone
Thank god someone else is paying attention out there
Where the hell were you in 2004?
Now let the games begin…

The liberals will be blamed for losing a war
The war that they were opposed to
The war that they warned against
The war they said was unwinnable
and they will lose it by saying so.

Morons will talk of the lives wasted in vain,
not of the thousands saved.
Vanity caused their deaths
so i say save the undead!
Turn on the lights!
Turn on the pipes!
Open 10 home depots
and get the fug out of there. Simple.

Not much new to report from 2merica corp@ration…
got some parts to make our pink timebomb, want to do a promo kit along with digital release. But the elscorpions were too busy riding the spaceship
to get any work done.

ah!! too much movement!
