Had a rough day today with George Bush on the mind.

I’m tired of being scared of this guy.
I’m tired of fearing his towering inadequacy.
I’m tired of each uninspiring, paltry word out of his mouth.
I’m tired of being embarrassed by it all.
I’m tired of the sheep who blindly support him.
I’m tired of our soldiers dying.
I’m tired of his blind stubbornness.

I’m tired of having no one to believe in.

I had a dream last night, and in the dream, we were in line to meet the President, and each person had one question for him. There were handlers guiding us, and lights and cameras, and secret service people standing around looking overly attentive.

People were asking him childish questions, for laughs more or less, and, when it was my turn I said, “Can you comment on yer legacy as the worst American president ever?”

Something like that. Don’t remember anything after that.

Thanks, George, for nothing. Now, fuck off.

Can’t wait for this one. Jimmy Carter, we need you again up on top. A true American hero. A national treasure.

The one thing that can’t escape my mind while watching this, is just…how bad things are with that farce George Bush in office. Shame on him. A disgrace for a great country. Dark times.

Still, seven years into this nightmare, for the life of me, I can’t believe George Bush made it all the way to the office of President of the United States. What a waste. What a waste. Shameful.

Jimmy Carter, thank you.

Logovoting. Vote on the presidential candidate, simply on graphic merit. I voted Obama. I dig the guy.

I made a logo for General Wesley Clark back in 2004. Cam set the deal up. He writes about the ordeal here. It was cool seeing it on C-Span and CNN and stuff. On waterbottles and lawns and shit.

Some of us have been pointing out how much of a douchebag this guy is since BEFORE 9/11 happened.


Too bad it’s taken 6+ years, an expensive and unnecessary “war”, far too many thousands of dead soldiers and Iraqi civilians and the increase of the National Debt to $9.8 trillion to get the rest of America to wake up and realize it.

Bush’s legacy will be measured by how much of our tax dollars he and his cronies stole, filtered, siphoned off, and just plain gave away to their buddies in the defense contractor business, the pharmaceutical companies and the energy companies. History will not be kind to Bush and his league of crooks and assholes. Let’s just hope America can recover from this incredible mess that is the Iraq “war” and the increasingly dismal financial state of the country.

Say what you will about Bush.

But Draplin being ‘tired about soldiers dying’ compelled me to write.

Surely Draplin knows that ours an all-volunteer Army that still meets its re-enlistment quotas after 4 years in Iraq? What right does Draplin have over their chosen profession?

Let’s compare Draplin’s professional life to that of a US soldier: Draplin drives around the US as the ambassador of helvetica font. 43,000 Americans die each year by just driving around for things like Draplin’s road trips. On the other hand, less than 4000 US warriors who volunteered for Iraq since March of 2003 have died. To quote Draplin, ‘this is America and we are still free’. I’ll defer to Draplin’s July understanding of freedom, and the soldier’s prerogative. A designer of Draplin’s caliber should understand proportion, meaning, and primary school math.

My comment is pretty simple.

I’m tired of kids/warriors/soldiers/patriots dying for such a mixed-up “cause.”

I mean, how do we justify their loss to their parents? Or to America?

I can’t. We can’t. Bush can’t. I’m looking for that answer.

So many lives lost, and, for what? Answer me that one.

My comments aren’t about math, man. They are about lives lost.

I’m pretty clear on that.

My “Half-Ass Roadtrips” vs. “Fighting Overseas For An American-Led Iraqi Quagmire?”

Wow, kinda twisted. Not the same deal.

If you fought for us, well, thanks. I go out of my way to thank soldiers all the time. In airports, at truckstops, wherever. I hope it helps.

Insane. We’re all to blame. Voting the man in, driving 2 miles in an Escalade or whatever to buy a freezee at 7-11. Flavor of the minute news of Brit-nee or O.J. Seriously, I don’t see how things will improve with whoever is sworn in on Jan of ‘09.

I will say this though, I remember all to well the slamfest had upon Clinton’s arse in ‘98. I will not participate in this one EITHER. We need change how we’re living and stop pointing.
