Carter Strikes Again

Ah, The Onion.

“Carter is one of the worst enemies the forces of destruction have known since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his non-violent rampages of the ’50s and ’60s,” Simmons said. “Even today, in his capacity as an ex-president, [Carter] continues his pursuit of non-aggression. He must be stopped now, before another terrible war is avoided and more lives are saved.”

On behalf of the Bush administration, Vice-President Dick Cheney expressed regret over Carter’s alleged crimes.

“We are all aware of the missteps that occurred during the placid days of the Carter administration,” Cheney said. “It was simply a matter of bringing the justice to light. Thankfully, the process has begun, and this chapter in our nation’s history is finally being brought to a close.”carterobama08


The Batman

chicago-bridges A dark city cries for help.

Gotham needs Batman.
obama+in+chicago
Long before there was a Batman to protect us, a band of terrorist criminals kept the fair city of Gotham under a near-constant state of panic.These criminals include:
The Joker George W. Bush
One-Facecheney
The Riddlerrumsfeld
…and their hired thugs.

This band of terrorist criminals ravaged Gotham until there was nothing left to burn, blow up, or steal. Many wondered: can Gotham rise like a mighty Phoenix to become great again? Some of us threatened to “move to Metropolis,” where at least the sun comes out sometimes and the newspaper is better.

Alas, most do not have the luxury of pulling up their roots and restarting in a new city. Other citizens claimed that we would live to see Gotham as the urban utopia it once was. But how?chicago-hyde-parkEnter: The Dark Knight.

Batman seemed to rise from the darkness itself, striking back at those who had tarnished our once-beautiful Gotham. He is now doing what Gotham’s corrupt police and crooked politicians never dared try. He fights the good fight. He bleeds for our sins. Though many of us will never see the Batman in person, we must rally around his symbol of hope.

Fly, Batman, fly. Into the light of the dark black night.

the legacy of president w bush

The man who shot and killed a park ranger in Mount Rainier National Park turns out to be a suicidal Iraq War veteran.  He is dead too, though it was due to freezing to death and not another gun.

Go ahead, W.  Take a good long look at your legacy:
I’m not just talking about the fact that people are allowed to bring guns into national parks, although that in itself is pretty heinous.  I’m talking about the unnecessary Iraq War, the Iraqi lives it ended, and the American veterans who came home damaged beyond repair.

So, to sum it up:
1. Guns are bad.
2. War is worse.

President W. Bush pushed for both of these things, and this is the result.  A legacy?  A tragedy maybe; certainly not what I’d want as a token of my presidency.

On a completely related note: President Obama ended the Iraq War in 2011.  I just thought I’d mention that, as it didn’t get much press at the time.
