BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX -- DC.
TODAY ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN, BULLY BOY PARDONED TWO TURKEYS AND ALLOWED WHITE HOUSE DOG -- BARNEY, NOT BIG BABS MOMMA BUSH -- TO TORMENT THEM BY CHASING THEM AROUND THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN.
LAUGHING BULLY BOY NOTED THE MILLIONS OF TURKEYS HE HAD NOT PARDONED AND REMARKED HE HAD NOT HAD SO MUCH FUN "SENDING PEOPLE TO THEIR DOOM SINCE I ALLOWED 131 TO BE EXECUTED IN TEXAS. IT GIVES ME A THRILL, LIKE HEARING THAT 2872 AMERICANS HAVE DIED IN MY ILLEGAL WAR."
BULLY BOY SPENT THE REST OF THE MORNING MOCKING THE TURKEYS THAT HE HAD NOT SPARED WITH REMARKS LIKE, "THAT TURKEY LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYE AND CRIED 'GOBBLE, GOBBLE, SAVE ME, GOBBLE, GOBBLE.' I REALLY ENJOYED SENTENCING THAT ONE TO DEATH."
THE ONLY SERIOUS NOTE IN THE PROCEEDINGS CAME WHEN ALBERTO GONZALES EXPLAINED THAT ONCE PARDONED, TURKEYS COULD NOT TURN AROUND AND PARDON THE BULLY BOY, SHOULD HE BE IMPEACHED.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Starting with resistance within the US military. Conscientious objector John A. Rogowskyj Jr. was deployed to Iraq at the start of this month. The twenty-two-year-old Marine was deployed, as the Associated Press notes, after a Marine captain recommended he be discharged, after a major said he couldn't serve in compbat duty in June, because a D.V. Odell Jr. ("commander of the Fourth Marine Division") doesn't seem to grasp what a c.o. is the policy that the US military has on them. The AP notes that Odell, a major general, found Rogowskyj to be "theologically confused and [he] does not reflect any officially recognized faith group."
Take that, America's forefathers. The slow witted Odell Junior might also make some time to check out "Selective Service System: Fast Facts" which notes: "Beliefs which qualify a registrant for CO status may be religious in nature, but don't have to be. Beliefs may be moral or ethical; however, a man's reasons for not wanting to participate in a war must not be based on politics, expediency, or self-interest." By the military's own guidelines, Odell Junior's statements are not only insulting but ignorant. "May be religious in nature, but don't have to be." Rogowskyj was deployed as a result of Odell Junior's failure to grasp the policies the military has set in place. There ought to be disciplinary actions for Odell (busted back down to a New Orleans post?). More likely, everyone will play stupid (well the tone is set from the Oval Office).
Edward Colimore (Philadelphia Inquirer) reports that Rogowskyj declares in the court papers: "I see now that I must separate from the military with all due haste, or suffer without the forgiveness of grace, for defying the truth that I see plainly before me, that violence as a means or end cannot be tolerated."
To repeat for the slow witted Odell Junior, who not only fails to grasp the freedom of religion clause in the Constitution but also fails to grasp official military policy, Rogowkyj need not belong to any church or faith, need not subscribe to Odell Junior's notions of 'old time religion,' in order to be granted c.o. status.Rogowskyj signed up for the reserves in 2002 thinking he would be helping stateside during national emergencies.
