The Draft, Brought to You By Hamid Karzai Bush

November 2, 2009

So our second attempt at a presidential election in Afghanistan did not go so well.  As 24 of you may already know, Karzai was recently “elected” as the commander in chief of our newest acquisition nation building project.  Unfortunately, the Afghan Al Gore known as Abdullah Abdullah, said that the election was a fraud and has refused to participate in it.

Sounds vaguely familiar, don’t it.

Could you folks at the State Department try a bit harder to make our actions in that region…appear somewhat legitimate?

In other Bush related news…Dick Cheney can recite, verbatim, the entire 8 years of what he was doing, who he was doing it to and who was next, but he cannot remember anything about his outing of a covert CIA agent.

Color me unsurprised and purple with engorged envy.

“MovingOn” …For a dash of reality and some words you will not hear on most other Homeland approved news programs, check out Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald.  Go right here to see the entire interview.

In addition to pointing out that everything you think you know about our involvement in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq is wrong, keep a keen ear out for Bill Moyers to udder two words that scares the Jesus out of every patriot in this here country…The Draft!

Happy Apathetic Monday Homelandians!

    Maybe the draft would wake up enough of the population to take a stand on some of the insanity that flows by each of us every day. Not being a parent, I can imagine if my draft age offspring were suddenly told to serve the government in any of the quagmire conflicts that we are currently in the midst of, I would have to seriously think about a long vacation for my kids to Canada.
    Easy for an old man like me to sit back and ponder I suppose, but I would no more send my kid out to be ground up in the industrial war machine than I would my friends kids. Soldiers follow orders; citizens are supposed to direct their representatives in our government. Supposed to.

      I’m sure many a patriot and many of the not paying attention to anything but Ricker moving to KUFO in Portland types…would be in for a fun filled, surprisingly real dose of reality, if said draft were actually to occur.

      Freedom tends to sting a bit more, when you have to actually do something besides slap a yellow ribbon of troop support on to your gas burning, vehicle of troop supporting goodness.

      Our representatives work for us?

      Stop making so much sense JJ, you might offend someone!

      Thanks…

    I guess I get it….

    If we’re fighting a war about injustice, why are we niggling over the dollars?

    If we’re fighting a war about injustice, why don’t we start the draft, and fight the war?

    If it’s not about injustice, why should we fight it?

      I guess it depends on who’s version of injustices we are fighting for…and who’s dollars are being used to fight said injustices…and who’s children/parents/brothers and or sisters will be drafted in said draft of injustice fighting.

      Be nice if more American type humans would ask themselves your questions barman. But we have not exactly taken a good, hard and honest look at ourselves in a long long time. If ever.

      I shall not hold my breath while waiting for the citizens of the Homeland, to start asking themselves these questions…

      Thanks as always barman.
