Hello Bloggers - Well, I have some more horrible news that warrants another rant today. We have another reason to thank George Bush, both father and son. The US debt clock in New York City has run out of digits, and the VAST majority of that debt is thanks to Ronald Reagan, Bush Sr., and, of course, Bush screw-up #43. Oh yes, I would like to add a special note of thanks to the Republican voters who supported them all too. Truthfully, I wish only your kids had to pay for it too - I really do.
The clock had enough digits to measure US debt levels until its recent explosion under George junior. The debt passed the $10 trillion point last month, so the sign could not display the full amount. The board was erected to highlight the $2.7 trillion level of debt in 1989, back during George Srs. reign of red ink. Incredibly, the simpleton-son has gone far beyond his father.
The clock's owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt. I used to watch that clock when I ate lunch in that neighborhood while living in New York City, and like most mortal fools, I never dreamed we would need to replace it with a freakin' BIGGER CLOCK. It, just like the new Water and Sewerage plant in San Francisco (more here), should be the first things dedicated to George Bush and his incompetent regime.
To that end I've purchased bushcheneymemorials.com and hope to create a pretty cool website dedicated to all the great things they've done for us. I might even sell little memorials to commemorate their administration. Feel free to get involved or make suggestions if you wish. I'll let you know more later; I'm too disgusted for now. The whole thing makes me SICK!
