Seven Minutes Until Midnight And Counting!
By Ernest Stewart
Should Americans pick crops? George says "No,
'Cause no one but a Mexican would stoop so low."
And after all, even in Egypt, the pharaohs
Had to import Hebrew braceros.
George Murphy --- Tom Lehrer
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has told the world how
close we are to annihilation since 1947, when its "Doomsday
Clock" first appeared in their magazine. Under Clinton the
clocked was moved back to 14 minutes but thanks to Bush we
are now at seven minutes till doom and counting. Of course
under old dementia head Ray-Guns it was sitting just 3 minutes
away from midnight.
Fortunately for the fascists and unfortunately for us the Sheeple
pay no attention to what's going on around them and will be
surprised as they can be when the mushroom clouds start
sprouting from sea to oily sea. I mean after all we've heard
Smirky and Unca Dick, Rummy, Kindasleezy and rest assure us
everything is hunky dory and there is certainly nothing to see
here and move along and roll over and go back to sleep and
don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain!
After all Iraq democracy is going gang busters and if women
aren't included in it thanks to Shia law well not to worry because
even in these here United Snakes democracy excluded women
and blacks and Indians and Chinese and Irishmen once upon a
time too and look how well it's worked out for all of us! So if half
the Iraqis are now second class and anyone not the right flavor
of Muslim is now subject to torture, death and the will of that
great democracy just next door i.e. Iran, so there's nothing to
worry about, right? After all Smirky has said if the selections go
okay in December then we can send a few troops home next
year for the November elections but like in Europe and Japan
we'll have permanent bases there to guard our oil for centuries
to come or until at least the oil fields run dry. Again the war is
over, everybody loves us, so roll back over and go back to sleep
and remember Jesus loves you!
Speaking of which, der Fuhrer wants to make all the illegal
aliens legal, to keep Americans in the cheese stamp lines,
which are being thinned out to fill up the new Happy Camps.(tm)
Their jobs are being taken by people named Jesus who are
willing to work that job that used to pay $25.00 an hour for
something like $25.00 a week because as Smirkus keeps
assuring us Americans won't work for that kind of money, ergo
we need the braceros. We need the braceros to keep the wages
down for everybody so we can get rid of that pesky middle class
which has lost over a million people a year since Bush seized
power in the 12-12-2000 coup d'etat! Of course this also makes
our borders as porous as a screen door but hey, after all
Wolfowitz and company don't have any more 911's planned right
now so it's perfectly safe to open our borders America! After all
since the Bush sedition everyone around the world loves
America and Americans more than they ever have before! And if
they don't love us and Jesus too, we'll bomb their cities to dust
until they do!
