Well I must say I haven't seen the Entire Speech, but only Bits and Pieces on TV and on the Internet News. And we have really seen nothing new. It is
only Recycled speeches from the Past, only with few Changes. I think it was more a Psychological Moment, trying to Recover and Boost Morale in the
Republican Ranks from the DISASTROUS year 2005.
If do not know, president Bush's Ratings have fallen to the all time low 40%, at this stage, which is the ammount that X-president Nixon had at the
time of the Watergate Scandal. And are there Scandals in Bush administration today? YOU BET! The real Question is, where AREN'T Scandals?
Let's start at Home - at Economy:
Since 2000, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen to nearly 37 million. More than 13 million of these are children. More than one in
four American families with children make less than $30,000 a year. Look within that number and you will find 46% of African American families with
children and 44% of Hispanic families with children fall below this mark. Average annual income for Americans fell once again in 2005. 46 million
Americans live without health insurance. Whats the Answer to this? Medicaid benefits for the poor were cut by $7 billion, and Medicare programs for
the elderly were cut by $6.4 billion. Federal student-loan programs were cut by $12.7 billion.
Will the Year 2006 be ANY Different then Before? Will actually Something Change for the Better? Why didn't the president adress the Katrina Disaster,
or the Ongoing Spying Program Scandals, or the Goverment Corporations Scandals (like Halliburton) - I am sure thats not the Topic you want to talk
Frankly, I doubt every word he Said, for they were proven in the Past to be either LIES or DECEPTIONS or just EMPTY WORDS, without any Actions to back
them up. Well, he did not lie with the following statement:
"America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world."
Yep, that sure is True. And if you recall the State of the Union adress 3 years ago, mister President told the nation that Iraq was in Possession of
26,000 liters of anthrax, 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin, 500 tons (which is 1,000,000 pounds) of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent, 30,000
munitions to deliver these agents, mobile biological weapons labs, al Qaeda connections, and uranium from Niger for use in a robust nuclear weapons
But no word about that Today - Today the America is JUST Addicted to Oil.
That does not matter, president Bush will keep Singing about the GREAT Democracy in the Middle East. But if we stop for a while, and see what
Democracy has accomplished - a radical named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected president of Iran, and his Plan to establish a Nuclear program frigtens
the World. Just when you need him... And lets not forget the Recent Hamas Victory in Isreal - again, as if he Ordered it by a Phonecall.
So does DEMOCRACY in Middle East actually Brings STABILITY and PROGRESS? Or is Democracy just another Excuse for the War on Terror to be Approved by
the Masses of the people around the world, for it has brought much more IN-stability to this Region.
On the other hand, Exxon Mobil has posted a $32 billion profit for the last year. This stands as the largest single one-year profit in the entire
history of the world. PROGRESS Indeed...
So, what has Changed since Last Year? The World is NOT Safer. American People are Poorer, they are Frightened, Surveilled, Propagandized, Intimidated,
Budget is destroyed and tax cuts spent on Iraqi Occupation.
Great World Ineed Mister President - Keep up the GREAT JOB!
