George Bush's America

Guest post by Cliff Schecter.

This tragedy is maddening. It is appalling. It is sickening.

And that this could happen in this country, while that portly pile of gelatinous goo known as our vice president rips Americans off millions with his reach-around friends at Haliburton, George W. Bush and his borderline retarded daughters never hold an honest job in their lives and the rest of the kleptocracy bleeds working people (see Bush's current threat to veto Homeland Security protections for all of us to prevent 43,000 TSA employees from regaining bargaining rights)…well I had better stop before I go searching in the streets for a random conservative to pummel.

Here is the story. A young boy in Maryland needed an $80 tooth extraction. His mother didn't have insurance, so he didn't get it. The bacteria spread to his brain. He DIED.

But hey, let's keep cutting taxes (and spiking pay) for spoiled-brat, meglomaniacal Republican officeholders who choke their girlfriends, try and molest children and invite gay prostitutes into the White House briefing room.

If this doesn't get you apoplectic, it should. This is not the America I was taught to believe in.
