    You wish, but if he did, this is what he could legitimately say.

    The following 'speech' was written recently by an ordinary Maineiac [a resident of the People's Republic of Maine]. While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is an excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living.

    The speech George W. Bush might give:

    Normally, I start these things out by saying 'My Fellow Americans.' Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.

    I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.

    The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.

    Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it doesn't seem to have sunk in.

    Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security.

    We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this 'blood for oil' thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty.

    Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named 'Clinton' established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you? Now some of you morons are considering another and more evil Clinton for president !!!! Go figure that one!! She wants to take your kids away and let the 'Whole Village' raise them! i.e. governmental indoctrination .. Look this one up you dumb asses!

    The rest of you morons want to be led by a junior senator with no understanding of foreign policy or economics, and this nitwit says we should attack Pakistan, a nucular ally. And then he wants to go to Iran and make peace with a terrorist who says he's going to destroy us. While he's doing that, he wants to give Iraq to al Qaeda, Afghanistan to the Taliban, Israel to the Palestinians, and your money to the IRS so the government can give welfare to illegal aliens, who he will make into citizens, so they can vote to reelect him. He also thinks it's okay for Iran to have nucular weapons, and we should stop our foreign aid to Israel. Did you sleep through high school?

    You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold w ar, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out spend and out-tech them.

    That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the bastards are all over the globe.

    You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

    Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

    Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

    In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times, USA Today, or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol or Dancing with Stars.

    I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.

    I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

    So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient for years. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

    Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining wh o are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

    So that's it. God bless what's left of America.

    Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you, kiss off.

    PS - You might want to start learning Farsi, and buy a Koran.

    You know, I put this up as a joke and to see what kind of response I would get, got exactly who and what I thought I would get. The reason you don't know where I am at is because I don't post here much, this forum has very little to do with survival anymore. I poke my head in and hit the "new post" button and what do I get? You dragging a bunch of crap over from infowars. If I wanted to read infowars, I would go to infowars. This board started out as a divergence from war rifles because it was getting to the point that there was nothing but "the sky is falling" crap and little talk about war rifles. Now survival monkey is rapidly approaching the same. On the entire list of new post since yesterday, there is exactly one post that is even closely related to survival and that is dragonfly asking what caliber is best. The rest is crap that has nothing to do with the charter of this forum.
    As for Iraq, quit reading infowars and start talking to soldiers and getting real "humint". Why do you think we are there? I'll save you some time, containment of Iran, pure and simple, because if we don't, the Isrealis are going to nuke them and if you think your fuel prices are high now, wait until that happens, look how high they went after destroying the Syrian nuclear plant?
    Blackjack, you say puuleese, please what. First of all, in case you didn't know, Bush didn't really write this, it come from someone pissed off about all the crap the Dems are doing with this election and the fact that the democratic congress hasn't done a farging thing for the last year. Read it again and tell me what isn't true there? You think things are going to get any better once he is gone? The statements about the democrats are spot on, think they are going to do any better? I can't fathom a world run by Obama or Pelosi. Besides, much of our problems are not because of Bush, they are because our Congress and Senate are full of retards that can't make simple decisions. We get a Supreme Court ruling that we do have the right to bear arms and what is one of the statements that come from someone on this board? Bush just appointed the right judges so that he could spread out the torture. Give me a break guys, unscrew the tin foil hat a little.
    This forum has gotten so full of [BSf]lateley, think I have had enough, time to take SM of the favorites list.

    A) Uh, yeah Sniper.... I knew Bush really didn't write it. But, do you really think that it's anything more than a bunch of bullshit rhetoric?

    B) Yes, the dems will do a horrible job of running the country.... and so have the republicans, I'm not taking sides, I hate them all, they're ALL crooked.

    C) Other than saying "welcome to the forums" to a new member, this was my first post in a full week, so I obviously wasn't aware that I fill the boards with this stuff.

    D) And you're in the Tinfoil Hat Lounge, not General Survival. This is the place set aside for stuff like that, ya know.

    I've got nothing against you, Sniper....not a thing. But on a forum devoted to issues like survival, personal security and self reliance, how can you not expect a strong reaction to the most unconstitutional, illegal, oppressive government of our time. It comes with the territory.

    [QUOTE] this is what he could legitimately say.

    Yes indeed IF he were to resign he could indeed make exactly that speech .

    But then again there's a whole bunch of things WE could legitimately say in response .

    How about first and foremost Lets talk about the War , the 911 attacks and just how safe have YOU really Made America .

    They happened almost 7 years to the day and while it didn't take long to discover who was responsible and paid for the whole thing here we sit and the SOB is still walking around free as a bird .

    The bombers didn't come from Iraq , weren't sponsored by Iraq ,weren't hiding in Iraq , hell how many of them were even Iraqi yet you went after Iraq . Why ? Iraq had no nuke program to attack us or even Israel with they were inconsequential in a world full of Brutal dictators .

    You spend Billions a year running us right back into a period of deficit Spending after even Clinton managed a surplus for what ? To Liberate one stinking country in a place that as a whole they hate us .

    You now run your mouth about the Dem's giving away our SSI to Illegals when you were primary supporter of giving them all citizenship and leaving the door open for tens of millions more of them .

    Here we are one year after tens of thousand of Americans wrote letters telling you to secure our border and just WTF have you accomplished in that area ?

    You're fighting a war with terrorists that aren't official combatants in the true sense of the word yet you leave our back door standing wide open with you waving a "Welcome" sign for the scum to come in here .

    NO terrorists attacks yes lots of terrorists on our soil YES .

    Do you NOT consider MS-13 and Laraza a bunch of terrorists ?

    They openly demonstrate to reconquer several of our Nations western states and claim them as territories of Mexico and you run go play patty cake with Mexico's President and sign treaties that allow their truckers to drive across out country on our highways .

    MS-13 has open firefights with Mexican police over their drug smuggling operations and as the problem grows here what do you do ? Stand by an watch a Federal prosecutor lock up two brave Border agents that stop a drug smuggler and refuse to pardon them for doing their job when he throws them in jail .

    Oil ? You want to talk oil now huh OK .

    Did you campaign on and push for alternatives when it was obvious that prices were getting beyond the average mans budget ?

    In your first term oil and gas prices rose approx 30% , how much have you spent on alternative development in years 5-8 while spending trillions on a war ?

    As long as you're running up historic deficits couldn't we spend say ten billion a year encouraging Battery , solar and wind power improvements ?

    Did you come up with a plan to retake the majority seats in the Congress and Senate in the 2004 elections by pushing any of these things and others like Lifting drilling restrictions . You are and were after all the leader of the Republican party . What about the 2006 midterm elections you had no vision whatsoever to help other members of your party other than the same old BS of "Stay the course" .

    Stay what course you still hadn't managed to catch one feeble old man living in a cave , rumored to be on a dialysis machine !!!

    You may wave the flag and have to salute his ass Sniper but we don't , and while yes the Dems are much worse that alone doesn't even come close to making Bush even a good President .

    He has provided no leadership in keeping our Nation free from the financial ruin by illegals as a matter of fact even worse has encouraged it .

    He hasn't lead the government into passing a law to stop all of the speculative trading on Oil or increasing drilling to lower gasoline prices .

    What has he done to encourage alternative energies ? Not a damn thing .

    O and the Minority Businesses and home ownership the little satire mentions are all in danger of closing and being forclosed on due to the run away inflation caused by the rising fuel prices .

    Remember if he had his way you'd need to speak Spanish and wave the Mexican flag almost as many times as speak English and wave the American flag .

    That is the entire problem, it doesn't come with the territory, it has become the territory and that is what I was driving at. As for posting in the TFH, pull up my statistics and you will find that I rarely ever post here. Just for shats and grins, I went to War Rifles last night and there is more talk about survival there than on this board! They even have gone as far as putting this on the top of their page: Jerks, Whack Jobs or Godless Men - Don't Bother Joining this Site. Which is rich coming from Brian.

    If I ran this forum, I would kill the TFH and if it wasn't survival related, kill it. Anyone that wants to cry "the sky is falling" can go to forums that cater to that kind of paranoia.

    We're just gonna disagree on that, I believe it does.

    I understand your frustration in constantly hearing negative remarks about an administration that you still believe in and support, it would be depressing, but where you see "the sky is falling" remarks, many others see legitimate concerns about our liberty and our future.

    For Example... Some "sky is falling" predictions from this forums past.

    1) North American Union - looks to be in the works
    2) National ID - coming true
    3) Chipping our livestock - on the way
    4) Secret CIA prisons in Europe - turned out to be true
    5) The Economic Downturn that were in now - also forseen here

    There are many more examples of instances where most people considered opinions held here to be "extreme" or "over the top" that turned out to be 100% accurate, and to automatically dismiss those concerns as just rantings of "nutjobs" and "whackos" is a recipe for being blindsided by future problems.

    I wish you could find a way to keep this forum a comfortable place for you to frequent. I'm not alone in considering you a valued member. Even though I don't agree at all with your view of this administration or maybe even what's relevant to a survival discussion, we all benefit when all sides of an issue or argument are represented.

    As by far the biggest seeker and depositor of "paranoid crap"
    I plead Guilty to dragging infowars over constantly ..Its an alternate viewpoint to the MSm's "All is well! Everything is great! go buy a new T.V"...
    I alone have power over that one. I can fix that.Don't demote the monkey because I filled it with paranoid crap.Other folks worked pretty hard to get it where it is...
    You want a' read that CRAP when you want to ( and I agree most of it is "crap". i.e.never) thats an easy one... But y'all gotta step up and post more"good stuff"to fill the void......
    "You wanna argue 7.62v5.56 ad infinitum like every other"survival" forum
    or kids going on about"their" "deagles", guys whose bug out bag includes dies and a 1000 primers?"
    "If I ran this forum, I would kill the TFH and if it wasn't survival related, kill it. Anyone that wants to cry "the sky is falling" can go to forums that cater to that kind of paranoia."

    O.K. A C. Sorry I ruined your day...
    It is a good day for a monkey melt down..
    to quote the sludge report guy:
