Here is part of that speech:
My fellow citizens, at this hour American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iran, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. On my orders, coalition forces have begun striking selected targets of military importance to undermine Iran's ability to develop a nuclear arsenal. These are opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign. More than 13 countries are giving crucial support from the use of naval and air bases to help with intelligence and logistics, to the deployment of combat units. Every nation in this coalition has chosen to bear the duty and share the honor of serving in our common defense.Your TV induced stupor is interrupted by your daughter's oxygen alarm sounding. Your beautiful, sweet daughter, who was so full of life, now lays like a broken doll on her bed, attached to a number of tubes. One helps her to breathe, another to help her ingest liquid food.
The President added that multiple victories were being achieved in Iran against the forces of evil and that democracy would eventually triumph.
He further stated that in order to overcome those "evil-doers", that a national service act was being instituted, but was careful to say that this was NOT a draft....."
Obama also said that we must never forget who attacked America on 9/11 and not let those terrorists rule our lives and that since those terrorists use the Internet, that the Internet would be shut down for a short period, but only until the Pentagon could install some protective anti-terrorist software to prevent more attacks against the USA.
Obama reassured a nation drowning in debt that the Federal Reserve and select Wall Street banks had promised to loan at a decent rate all the money needed to overcome terror.
See, she's been like that ever since her convoy got hit by that mine in some godawful city in Iraq, don't even remember which one, hell, they all sound the same. And what in the hell am I going to do now with my daughter with the bank foreclosing on my house this month?
From the living room, you can hear the voice of Wolf Blitzer, saying that the economy was in great shape, despite the recent bank failures.
Wolfie stated that the Federal Reserve was injecting another 500 billion into the market to help stabilize the banking industry, but that action was recommended by the president's council on economic activity, which is made up of the Federal Reserve's Board of Governors, whose members are the heads of major Wall Street banks who will receive the money.
You don't know squat about no Board of Governors, but you do know that there isn't enough food in the cabinets to make it to the end of the week.
And just what in the hell are you going to do about that? Done cashed in all the valuables at the local hock shop. Damned Arabs, the president said if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be having these troubles.
Damned Arabs. If only I hadn't hocked my deer rifle, I'd go out and pop a few myself, just to make up for my dead son. Killed, over in Israel, fighting those damned evil, Arabs. Killed, fighting for democracy or at least that's what those two officers who came to the house to let me know Bobby was dead told me. Killed while he slept inside some Israeli Army base, that's what they said. Killed by those Goddamn Arabs, that's what the telegram from the Israeli embassy said. Goddamn Arabs.
Well, at least he died fighting for something we all believed in, freedom. But damn, if that don't leave a hollow and bitter taste in your mouth.
Not good to think about this, but damn if it ain't hard not to, what with me being laid off from my job after 22 years. Damn company shipped the factory overseas somewhere, but FOX News said that was a good deal, that shipping those jobs over there would make everyone better off.
Don't know about that. If I don't find some money by the end of the month, gonna lose the house to the damned bank.
"Today, Department of Homeland Security announced that due to recent riots at food pantry's and homeless shelters, that Canadian National Guard troops would be stationed in major US cities on a 'temporary' basis until calm was restored."
935 Lies (and Counting): Study Documents Bush Admin's False Statements Preceding Iraq War
A new study from the Center for Public Integrity has revealed President Bush and top administration officials made a total of 935 false public statements about Iraq's alleged national security threat in the two years following the 9/11 attacks. President Bush made the most false statements—260. Colin Powell, his then-secretary of state, made 254 false statements. We speak with the founder of the Center for Public Integrity, Charles Lewis.
Just because the Bush-Cheney Junta told a 1,000 lies or more about invading and occupying Iraq doesn't mean they lied about 9/11, right?
