George Bush should walk home (to Connecticut)
When I got in touch with someone I went through navy boot camp with, I thought it would be a good thing.
I even invited this person to contribute to this blog.
But "Salem" mistakenly figured I was in here as (nom de plume) a cigarette brand, obviously missing the fact that I was taking on the character in George Orwell's "1984," a banned book in some countries that is essentially about banned lives.
So he chose the name, "Salem."
No problem ... I get the joke.
Salem declined to contribute posts, instead sending me emails that are "baits" about why I should become a member of the absent-minded conservative party in the United States.
I tried to call this person a while ago, and he didn't have time to talk to me.
But the emails continued, and one recent missive was a reference to an article about how World Criminal and U.S. President (the worst) George Bush was being unfairly treated.
Here is a copy of my reply, and his subsequent analysis of my personal philosophy, of which he knows nothing.
RE: The Treatment of Bush Has Been a Disgrace
I couldn't read all of this story, will have to try later at home.
But I couldn't disagree more with the headline.
As far as I'm concerned, George Bush should have to pay for his own Secret Service protection after he leaves the office he has disgraced for eight years.
And he should be forced to walk home from the White House.
Not back to Texas, but to Connecticut where he originally is from.
George Bush is no Texan."
"I must assume you consider yourself to be liberal. I know of no other group so unforgiving. I think of you as a smart person and believe that if you herd another person as firmly anti anything as it appears you are you would wonder how and why. I would like to get together when we both have time and talk at length. I don’t expect to convert you to anything but would like to truly understand."
This is me, WINSTON, again with my "LIBERAL viewpoint.
I apologize (not really) if this is confusing ... but I am incensed that someone from the same country, even the same state, wants to brand me a Liberal because I want George Bush to walk home, to the state where he is actually borne FROM: CONNECTICUT ... not TEXAS.
I am a TEXAN ... George Bush is not.
Don't brand me a Liberal until you get to know me.
Until then, I'll proudly call myself a liberal, if you must attach a label to me.
And yes, I voted for Barack HUSSEIN Obama, and I'm proud of it.
