Yes, I AM Angry...

(Cross-posted at Daily Kos.)

I received a comment today concerning my last blog post, and I feel I should directly respond to with a post of its own.

Here's the comment:

DCF, you sound angry. I am angry too about all of this BS. These right wing looneys are callous, arrogant, popous asses. But some 60 million people (supposedly) thought it would be a good idea to give these cowards another 4 years back in Nov '04. Mind boggling.

Well, yes, Chico, I am angry. In fact, I'll do you one better and say that I am pissed-off about countless things concerning this administration, not the least of which was Snow's callous and shameful remark, which shows exactly how he and those he works for view those brave men and women who have died in Iraq as nothing more than "a number".

I'm pissed-off because we shouldn't even have our soldiers there in the first place. I'm pissed because some of us were foolish enough to believe the lies that led us there. I'm pissed-off because of the lies themselves. I'm pissed-off because now, three-and-a-half years later, we're still there, even though those lies have been exposed for what they are, but the people in the Republican-controlled Congress who are supposed to be representing us - you and I - have all but completely relinquished their oversight of the person who got us into this, allowing him to do whatever he wants under the guise of fighting his ridiculous "War on Terror".

I'm pissed-off about "Mission Accomplished" because it clearly was not.

I'm pissed-off that Dubya still hasn't managed to catch the guy who was responsible for killing 1300 innocent people on September 11th, 2001 before traipsing off to another country to settle a score with the guy who made his Poppy look like an idiot.

I'm pissed-off because the man who got us into this undeclared "war" has not let something as trivial as the Constitution - a document designed to ensure that this country would never become a dictatorship - stop him from taking steps to create a police state.

I'm pissed-off that while he has focused on taking over another country, he has let the one he's supposed to be taking care of fall by the wayside. I'm pissed-off that "No Child Left Behind" has left almost all the children behind, forcing schools to teach kids to test well rather than teaching them the things they'll need to know when they get out of school. I'm pissed-off that his job creation since he first took office is still in the negative numbers six-and-a-half years later. I'm pissed-off that he has given the largest tax breaks to the wealthiest 1%, while the other 99% of us have been getting poorer. I'm even more pissed-off that he did this at a time when we are supposed to be "at war." I'm pissed-off that he refused to sign the Kyoto Protocol, which was intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are destroying the ozone layer of the planet.

I'm pissed-off about the so-called elections of 2000 and 2004. Both have been called into question, quite rightly, although there's nothing that we can really do about them. Nobody is going to give us back the past six-and-a-half years.

I'm pissed-off that these same idiots who are going on and on about what a great guy Dubya is, even in the face of mounting evidence that he truly is the worst president ever, were so hot to see Bill Clinton swing for getting a blowjob in the Oval Office, an event that should have been nobody's business but his and his wife's. Back then, they were all full of moralistic zeal. Where did that all go, now that the current Idiot-in-Chief is responsible for the deaths of over 2500 Americans and God alone knows how many innocent Iraqi men, women and children?

I'm pissed-off that Congress is more concerned about keeping gay men and women from getting married and flag burning than they are about making sure everyone has affordable healthcare and a roof over their heads. I'm pissed off that those same congresspersons are not taking care of their constituents because they are too busy lining their pockets with special interest money from corporations who could care less if we live or die.

I'm pissed-off because of all the people who died last year as a result of Hurricane Katrina. I'm even more pissed-off because of the ones who died after because FEMA and the rest of the government were running around with their dicks in their hands. I am incredibly pissed-off that they knew it was coming, promised to help, and then completely failed to do so.

I'm pissed-off because the petrolium companies used Katrina and its follow-up, Rita, as an excuse to screw the American people by raising the prices of their products to ridiculous heights. I'm pissed-off that they used a national tragedy to garner record-breaking profits through price-gouging that continues to this day.

Chico, you said "some 60 million people (supposedly) thought it would be a good idea to give these cowards another 4 years back in Nov '04." While that, in itself, is questionable, I'm still pissed-off - and, quite frankly, shocked - that even 33% of those who have been here on Earth with the rest of us still think that smirking asshole is doing a good job. What the fuck is wrong with those people?

I'm pissed-off that right now, as I type this, there is probably a computer somewhere recording every keystroke and branding me a traitor because I'm speaking my mind.

So, yes. I am pissed-off. You should be, too. If you're not, you haven't been paying attention.

I share your anger DCF. Just was wondering how there could be 60 Million fools who would actually still vote for the guy after we already knew most fo what you just wrote about. Yes I am angry at Dubya and his administration, but I am also angry at the Democratic party for not having a spine on any of this. I am angry at the American people for letting him get away with this. I am angry with myself for not doing more back in '04 to get rid of him, and I am angry for my children for the legacy of this bozo will live on long after he has left Washington, DC.

You're definately right about him being the worst president ever, at least in terms of America's foreign relations; the American media will probably never tell you this, but because of President Bush most countries in the world have a negative opinion of America. I don't just mean Islamic countries, ones he's invaded for no good reason, but most people in western countries, eastern countries etc. Before his presidency, people looked up to America as something to aim towards, something to be admired. Nowadays, America is deeply unpopular and unfortunately he's tarnishing his fellow Americans with the same brush.

I can't stand Dubya and all the shit he had pulled in his years of office. The mess he'll be leaving behind for the next person(or animal, you;d think that we would want something smarter than Dubya, a turkey has more intellegence than that fake Texan from Conneticut) in line for the presidency can be remotely described in one word: clusterfuck.

Bush will be the Hoover of this generation, future generations and in the history of this nation.
