MY “TAKE” ON “PRESIDENT”
BUSH’S 1-20-04 “STATE OF
THE UNION ADDRESS”

(Written on 9 February 2004)
By S. Wolf Britain

In “President” Bush’s 2004 “State of the Union Address”, one of the first lies of a speech that was virtually all lies was stated when Bush claimed “our” armed forces are “….delivering hope to the oppressed, and delivering justice to the violent”. But this lie has to be one of the sickest and most evil lies ever told; for the U.S. military has delivered complete hopelessness to the, what is now estimated to be, over 40,000 Iraqi citizens that they unconscionably and mercilessly murdered, as well as to the thousands upon thousands of Iraqis who were seriously injured and/or maimed for the rest of their lives, in the second Iraq war alone. In addition, U.S. armed forces have NOT delivered True Justice, either to the Iraqis or to themselves; as True Justice does NOT embrace, by any stretch of the lying imagination, murdering tens of thousands of innocent people, including people who were doing nothing but exercising their right(s), and duty(ies), to defend their sovereignty, as ALL countries have the right(s) and duty(ies) to do; NOR did “our” military AT ALL hold THEMSELVES accountable for, in the first place, the COMPLETE ILLEGALITY of that second Iraq war, or for THEIR OWN excessively violent, exceedingly criminal, atrocities that they committed in the process of carrying through that COMPLETELY ILLEGAL war. And the very fact that such a “war of aggression”, as clearly defined by several international laws, IS AND WAS completely illegal, makes EVERY SINGLE act of aggression carried out by U.S. armed forces, including EVERY SINGLE support action that made it both possible and a reality, TOTALLY UNJUST! So where is the Justice for the “American” violence, for which ALL Americans should be completely shocked, revolted and repulsed?!

Next, Bush adds further to the lies that overflow from him on a constant basis, by stating that, “(i)n their efforts, their enterprise, and their character, the American people are showing that the state of our union is confident and strong”, when the polls have shown that the American people are very nearly divided right down the middle over both Iraq and policy(ies) threatening civil liberties BOTH abroad and at home, making the Truth of the matter that, when our country is so divided, the state of our union CANNOT possibly be so confident and strong! And more and more Americans ARE waking up to what is really going on, and standing up against it; especially those fully true Americans who are daily putting the very liberty, as well as the very safety, of their actual persons, on the line “for Truth, (True) Justice, and the (True) American way”; and the other half of “Americans” who are wrongly toeing the party line, are so at odds with those who are totally, non-violently and peacefully standing up for True Freedom, and nothing but the protection of our True Democracy and Liberties, that they are fraudulently claiming the latter are supposedly being traitors to, committing treason against, and betraying the United States, when it is those false accusers who are the ones thereby betraying, committing treason against, and being traitors to the omnipresent civil liberties and duties of freedom of speech and dissent to be a check and balance upon the abuse(s) of power by the U.S. government! So how, short of the true traitors violently turning on the True Patriots, perpetrated both by the civilians and “law enforcement authorities”, that has already begun to occur in the latter, and the conflagration of both that is very soon to occur, can we be any more divided, and our “union” any more insecure and weak?!

MY RESPONSE TO “PRESIDENT”
BUSH’S 1-29-03 “STATE OF
THE UNION ADDRESS”

(Written on 20 April 2003)
By S. Wolf Britain

In “‘President’-by-Coup” George W. Bush’s 2003 “State of the Union” speech, he claims, “Our Union is strong….”; but the Union is NOT strong when human rights and civil liberties are being abrogated right and left, in violation of both the U.S. Constitution and True Democracy, and “first-strike”, “preemptive” wars for empire are being waged against virtually defenseless nations for the sake(s) of the corporate-military-industrial-government complex! It proves that Bush is lying through his teeth more than ever, and that the vast majority of “Americans” are believing those lies because of the typical rhetoric that keeps emanating from the present, “non-democracy”, White House these days! Therefore, what hope do we Truly have that True Democracy is going to prevail in this administration?! The answer is, NONE!! And I cannot over-repeat that it behooves ALL True-Americans to stand up against it!!

Bush states that his previous tax cuts were “the largest tax relief in history”; but it begs the question, who do those, and his presently-proposed, “tax relief” actions really benefit?! The answer is, THE RICH, of course!! The average “American” citizen got, and/or will get, a few hundred dollars in tax “relief” at best, while far too many Americans languish in disease, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, and poor education, with much of the social relief programs being drastically cut to support Bush and Company’s imperialistic war-machine and the rich “administrators” in the White House, which is casting the entire world into fear, disgust, hatred, vindictiveness, and lack of safety and peace!!

Virtually the only people in the entire world who support the United States present bid for world domination, except for some other oppressive governments, are those, including about seventy-percent of “Americans”, who don’t truly understand what is really going on, and what it is leading to! The majority of individual, non-elitist citizens all over the globe are against the foreign policies and actions of the United States, and a huge percentage of those worldwide who are against it are stridently protesting against it, in a peaceful, non-violent fashion, in numbers that are unprecedented in world history, while the United States arrogantly ignores this and proceeds to “discriminatorily” and criminally murder innocent sovereign people(s) the world-over!

Bush talked about relief for senior citizens in the U.S.; but, yet again, he said nothing about relief for the millions of disabled Americans and veterans! The disabled and veterans in the United States are constantly left out, inadequately cared for, are expected to survive on below-poverty-line government insurance and/or V.A. veterans pensions, and are having their benefits drastically cut in the names of “Freedom” and ever-increasing military and corporate profits from the U.S. government, at the expense of the suffering American people who are the vast majority of the U.S. populace, suffering in the poverty, disease, etcetera, that I named above! Where is the relief for the veterans and the disabled, the ones who are not seniors, and are probably in a much greater majority than the seniors?! Where is their all-powerful lobby and voice(s) in the Senate and the Congress; and when will they receive the relief that they should be receiving just as much of as senior citizens in a country that is supposed to be based on equal rights?! The Truth is, before or after the present administration in the White House, they probably never truly will!! And senior citizens, as well as veterans, are NOT receiving the relief benefits that they should be receiving, and they probably never truly will, either!!
