The Warmongering King Came to Town.....Again
Every time he comes I want to hide the Children, All of them.
So the King came to town yesterday, he comes to Cleveland atleast 4 times a year and to visit the Cleveland Clinic, and then he visits the Intercontinental Hotel ( which is PART of the Clinic) and gives a contrived performance with wellchosen selected audience. And the audience usually claps and smiles for the camera - on cue- to look enthusiastic. Yesterday the audience looked stonecold bored, there was no smiles, no clapping ( not even the polite golf clapping).But oh, how the King ranted and raved, peevish and Country Boy Charm all rolled into one sweaty suit. The folksey I-feel-your-pain and I-fight-terra strut were barely acknowledgedon the icey stage. One person even yawned during the Terra part of his speech.
And then he talked about Iraq and how we are gonna NEED more and more Time and More Patience. The ice on the stage was now ready for a Chainsaw.Ohio has given MANY fine young men and women to this Debacle now. It is so bad here that Funerals are held about every other week at HIGHSCHOOLS. ( BTW, let me just say that does NOT help the recruiters at all).Last month there was a Funeral EVERY week at a different highschool. And the local newstations here have started showing when bodies come home, for that I am grateful.
Maybe we NEED a Mothers March on DC, because King George doesn't care About our Sons and Daughters....and he is Deluded and Sick, and thinks if he surges enough manpower over there he can still have "Victory". As a mother I am sick of watching this man hurt our Children......and I know in my Heart that as much as he loves Executive Orders that a Draft is so close.......Too Close.
