All bullshit liberal propaganda.
Liberalism is a mental disorder!
LOVE IT ;-)))
in my Patriotic and Political gallery that I originally started for Memorial Day.
Fantastic stuff,I share your points of view.Thank god we got rid of our bush puppet here in OZ.
Fantastic stuff, I now know why I left the USofA,I would have died living in a nation of brainwashed idiots,shown by their choice of leadeship.Will it really make any difference if you get another president, I think not!
love it, thanks, great job
You are a good, honest basher. Too bad so many eyes are veiled over in the U.S.
Hello, my name is Petro, I liked yours guest book, can get acquainted and with mine
"americonian" ... hmm ... is it you, GWB ??
Why Must you socialists try to take down the americonian ideals of this country but refuse to live in a country where your socialistic ideals are prevail ?
While I respect and value what you propose to do in Africa, I cannot help but think of the millions of Americans without adequate health care who would benefit from your kindness and skills. Why don't you help these Americans? WBR LeoP
The Iraq war has been good for Iraqi's. THEY ARE FREE now. if it takes another 3000 more dead american soldiers then bring it on, for FREEDOM!
This page is full of the pathetic small minded liberals and their muslim equivalents. Rembember that in a free society liberals can, and do, get control which causes the society to fail. In the case of Islam, it simply makes slaves of women and idiots of men which causes liberals to come to their support since slaves not idiots can fend for themselves.
Won't go to the politics but very funny stuff.
The real problem is that the US media is backing the US government, that's why Bush got reelected instead of getting impeach!.....that's why a lot of Americans think that Sadam Hussein had something to do with the World Trade Center attack.
Who is behind the US media? and who is gaining from all of this?
This link is about the book by William Blum, "Rogue State"....an interesting read.
It must really suck to be a liberal these days, huh!
Great set of political art. Voted

Bush is only a small part of the problem--it's the neo-conservatives and big government socialism thinking that has brought us to this point. If anyone is interested in principled opposition to the war in Iraq and not just America bashing and "I'm so ashamed I'm American" excuses then please visit this site:
We all know what the problems are..but what are the solutions?
we all die one day - goddamn - hitler killed himself - nobody is "from islam":
great performance :-)
I hope you die Erich mother fucker! You should be killed like that godamn hitler mother fucker! I am from Islam you son of a bitch!
Bush caused more problems than he solved
If you show me where i support german or french weapon industry i would be very thankful, i don't find it.
If Bush is so wrong, then please supply a picture of a real SOLUTION to the problems he is trying to solve vs just jokes, name calling, funny pictures and riducule. I don't think he is right on a number of things, but I would like to hear an answer as to why it is ok for the germans and french to sell very deadly weapons to the bad guys.
Thank you, as an American and thinking individual I sometimes feel as if I am mad. I wish my fellow citizens would awaken to the truth - we are good people who have been misled. Corporations, media and our politicians have destrotyed America while we fell asleep at the wheel. The education system has been undermined and analytical thiking destroyed. Unknown to most Americans we have been groomed to be consumers. A modern day "Animal Farm".
little i know, but i think here in austria as austrian i cannot vote for democrats nor republicans
So, are you democrat or republican???????
Erich you are the greatest presidential advisor since Albert Einstein.
Did you mail this pagelink to the White House?
Excellent perspective. As an expatriate now living in France it's nice to know some folks over there still have a sense of humor. As I read the thoughts of others below, however, I have to question who is most responsible for the Bush travesty: The Republicans, who once again managed to take the election from the oppostion and are now doing exactly what we would expect of them, or the Democrats, who decidedly allowed Bush to win a second term and now can do nothing more than bitch and moan about the aftermath? In Spain, following the Madrid train station bombings, more than one million people mobilized and marched in the streets to protest against the policies of then prime minister José Maria Aznar, who then subsequently lost the following election. Why don't we see that same level of passion and love for one's country in America anymore? Unfortunately the Democratic party will also lose the election in 2008 if they continue on the same apathetic path, with no effective system of propoganda and no clear leader in sight.
Not One Damn Dime Day" - Jan 20, 2005 - Inauguration Day
Help Make a Difference...
Please mark your calendars now...
"Not One Damn Dime Day" - Jan 20, 2005 - Inauguration Day
Since our religious leaders will not speak out against the war in
Iraq, since our political leaders don't have the moral courage to
oppose it, Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One
Damn Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day" those who oppose what is happening in our
name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all
forms of consumer spending.
During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not one damn
dime for gasoline. Not one damn dime for necessities or for impulse
purchases. Not one damn dime for nothing for 24 hours.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day," please boycott Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target...
Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store. Please
don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter).
For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail economy down.
The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq
is immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and
that it is their responsibility to stop it.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for
the people of the United States of America, not for the international
corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations
and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The
politicians put the troops in harm's way.
Now over 1,200 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000 Iraqis
have died. The politicians owe our troops a plan - a way to come
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No petitions to sign. No
or right wing agenda to rant about. On "Not One Damn Dime Day" you take
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind our
religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility
to end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people.
Please share this e-mail with as many people as possible.
Erich, diese bloeden Idioten haben diese Macaque immer wieder ausgehwaehlt, genau so wie ich sagte in September :-). Enschuldigung fur meine Deutche Grammar :-)
Economic Crisis a Question of When, Not If
By Pedro Nicolaci da Costa
Monday 22 November 2004
New York - The economic policies of President Bush have set the country on a dangerous course that will likely end in crisis, Princeton economics professor Paul Krugman told Reuters in an interview.
Krugman, who may be best known for his opinion column in The New York Times, said he was concerned that Bush's electoral victory over Sen. John Kerry earlier this month would only reinforce the administration's unwillingness to listen to dissenting opinions.
That, in turn, could spell serious trouble for the U.S. economy, which under Bush's first term was plagued by soaring deficits, waning investor confidence and anemic job creation.
"This is a group of people who don't believe that any of the rules really apply, said Krugman. "They are utterly irresponsible."
Krugman is currently taking some time off from journalism to write and promote the second installment of his latest project - economics textbooks aimed at making the science more accessible to college students.
In the meantime, however, he worries the Bush administration's fiscal policies are going to push the world's largest economy into a rut.
The most immediate worry for Krugman is that Bush will simultaneously push through more tax cuts and try to privatize social security, ignoring a chorus of economic thinkers who caution against such measures.
"If you go back and you look at the sources of the blow-up of Argentine debt during the 1990s, one little-appreciated thing is that social security privatization was a important source of that expansion of debt," said Krugman.
In 2001, Argentina finally defaulted on an estimated $100 billion in debt, the largest such event in modern economic history.
"So if you ask the question do we look like Argentina, the answer is a whole lot more than anyone is quite willing to admit at this point. We've become a banana republic."
Crisis might take many forms, he said, but one key concern is the prospect that Asian central banks may lose their appetite for U.S. government debt, which has so far allowed the United States to finance its twin deficits.
A deeper plunge in the already battered U.S. dollar is another possible route to crisis, the professor said.
The absence of any mention of currencies in a communique from the Group of 20 rich and emerging market countries this past weekend only reinforced investors' perception that the United States, while saying it promotes a strong dollar, is willing to let its currency slide further.
"The break can come either from the Reserve Bank of China deciding it has enough dollars, thank you, or from private investors saying 'I'm going to take a speculative bet on a dollar plunge,' which then ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy," Krugman opined. "Both scenarios are pretty unnerving."
In the longer-term, Bush's version of social security reform, which Krugman says would relegate pensions for the elderly to the whims of volatile financial markets, could have wide-ranging implications for future generations.
The only bright spot in having Bush in power for another four years, said Krugman, is that further economic mismanagement might trigger some sort of popular outcry.
"I do believe at some point there is going to be a popular tidal wave against what has happened," concluded Krugman. "In the meantime, you keep banging on the drum, you keep telling the truth.
"And then eventually we have the great demonstrations, which I think are important to let the government know that many Americans are not happy with what is happening," he said.
Who said there were casualties in the government officials? I highly doubt Dubya would let his kids march off to war when they come of age... yeah I know they are girls, women are allowed now... ;)
Who are the casulties? Not any goverment official on any side!

Hi Eric. Good stuff. Here are some actual meanings of the words Washington uses often...
Liberation = Invasion.
Freedom = Voting for our CIA trained puppets as presidents to rule you whether you like it or not. If you don't agree, you are a fanatic terrorist.
Terrorist = Anybody who tries to fight back at American invading tanks and gunfire on their homes.
Unpatriotic = Any American who questions their government's motives.
Fox News = America's source of Truth.
Democracy = Governments that do exactly what Washinton and Jerusalem say without asking questions.
Strong leader = An American president who crushes and kills those dirty Middle Eastern devils who are so jealous of the American way of life, without hesitation. Kill 'em all...before they come and marry our pretty cousins and terrorise our way of life.
Saddam Hussain = A long time CIA asset who became useless.
Osama Bin Laden = A long time CIA asset who became crazy - but still very useful.
Taleban = Good CIA friends that helped the US build the pipeline of Caspian oil through Afghanistan.
Iraq (pronounced in the USA "Eye-Raq") = A country ravaged by twenty years of war and suffering because of the fact that they sit on an ocean of oil that we want so bad we can taste it.
Afghanistan = A country ravaged by forty years of war and torture because they are at a strategic location: sitting in between Russia, Iran, China, and CASPIAN OIL - YUMMMMY...
Do not get "Bushwacked" in 08, Keep Jeb in Florida.
The ticket is "Hillary/Jeb" then all Hillary has to do is put in the Oval Office a big enough desk for Jeb to fit under and she can get her wounds from Bill's flings and the GOP's White Water "licked" at the same time.
If this is too long please remove.
A Mid-Nov Nightmare
A Short Story
Gary L Senkus
It was Nov 2008 and Arnold stood late at nite at party HQ's flashing the V sign for the 3rd time. The first such a short time ago, the Gov race in Califoria, 2nd the victory of "amend for Arnold" and now the Whitehouse. A secret group cheered in a secret location of the Mid-East. When it came to the USA they had the blackest hearts in the world. They celebrated longer than the GOP. The great thing way beyond thier hopes had just happened, a road for naturized citizens to the Whitehouse thru Hollywood.
While Arnold served his four years quietly. The days in the secret room over in the Mid-East were fast and furious, a 20 years plan to the whitehouse.
Part A, Sleepers and Moles not to penetrate anything but Hollywood which required setting up ligitimate Hollywood studios that could produce A & B movies, as thier moles and sleepers would be awaken and highly prepared to slide in Hollywood very quickly thru the several studios now secrectly own by the group to find just the right actor for the Americans to follow blindly into politics when the timing was right.
Part B, of the plan was to get some highly trained agents into the AF, Army and Naval Acadamies as citizenship requirements were much lower. They would never spy, but would very highly compete for rank with anything below 2 stars a failure.
These groups would be equal of men and women as it is a 20 plan. They would be the most loyal blackhearted that would already be screened and trained to the degree as much would be allowed by age and time before departure.
TIME DATE: November 2028. As the newly elected president from Hollywood flashes his great smile his eyes sparkle and as the crowd roars no one knows his black heart for the USA nor the bigger party is going on in that 20+ year old building in the Mid-East, they had just taken the Whitehouse without a shot, Little did anyone know the cabinet was now to be filled mainly from our military, those sleepers had been taught to be liked and trusted by both parties.
Two pictures hung on the wall behind them. The 1st a president from Hollywood who taught them the wall could come down without a shot, and a war was won. The 2nd was thier real hero the man who taught them how to do it without having to be born in this country and having work your way up through politics were you might get caught, just do it thru Hollywood.
6 months later:
Wait my front door is being kicked in, they are going to take me into slavery because I am a native born Ameri... helpp0pppppppppt7yik5uu..............
The End or Just the beginning.
"Amend nothing for Arnold" because it was put there for a reason by our forefathers who as a group figured things real good.
"Do not turn over any rocks you do not know what is under, it could be very deep and very very dark much later."

My post of 21 Aug 2004 the correct link should be:
Bush won Ohio... are you "sure" of that:
cannot surprise anyone:
Speaking of "the US goal of world hegemony" this is a good place to check that out:
Quote: We aim to change this. We aim to make the case and rally support for American global leadership.
Hehehe, funny stuff. Erich, don't expect all people viewing this gallery to understand what you're talking about. Most of these guys have never left their own state, let alone travel anywhere outside of the USA. Bush's grandfather was the banker of Adolf Hitler, during the time that his country was in war with him. Bush and his fellow Republicans are an oil thirsty mob who will stop at nothing to control Mid-East oil, establish Israel as the superpower of the Mid-East, and destroy any freedom seeking people by labeling them as terrorists.
The global war on terrorism has hallmarks of a political myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda - the US goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command over the oil supplies required to drive the whole project.
Sometimes one needs to choose between the lesser of two evils, so to speak... have been in the position here myself. Kerry is the lesser evil.
If Hilary Clinton were to run next time... no I don't think Bill Clinton would do anything to shame her, but would the people vote for her?
51% of voters = 31% of all americans
Fear and Fundamentalism = Death and Deficit
He gets 51% of the vote and thinks he has a mandate?!!!
The only positive thing I can see about this election is that the blame will now fall where it belongs when the shit hits the fan...not on the Dems.
Homophobia and bigotry are alive and well and 51% of the American people have proved themselves to be as self-centered and ignorant as I've thought they are.
I think we need more than a 1 1/2 party system.
Is there room for a new idea in America? Probably not.
All I have to say to the freaking Bushies taking over my country with their fear and ignorance is the an idiot looks like a genius to another idiot! Not in my name!
Do all of these Bush Christians really think this mudering, lying, stealing pig is getting into Heaven? I guess if he appoints the supreme court justice that that repeals the current abortion statutes God may look the other way on his countless sins!
i delete all comments from that asshole "guest" who seems to hang out on pbase only to wait till i open my galleries - as soon as Slug installs the feature that ip-addresses are visibible there will be silence anyway, such freak usually don't have a backbone
thanks for the condolensces from an American. I am leaving MY message here with hopefully Erich's kind graciousness to say that I hope the rest of the world does not view ALL Americans in a bad light because the criminals won another round in our government. There actually are alot of us who would die to see change here, and we will eventually, once the current brainwashing and deceptions of the population majority fades and they see who they actually voted in again. The "security mom" bubbleheads and the "screw thy neighbor" republicans have frightened the polulace into believeing that Bush's pre-emptive war policies and his disastrous economic policies domestically are the right path to continue down on. I just hope such ignorance is not taken by the world as the absolute philosophies of the entire American populace.
My condolences to the American people... :( I am not anti-American by a long shot, but I am anti-Bush...
Erich... I like this gallery, I make my comments here because it's free of some of the rabid right wing rants I see elsewhere... some people cannot be educated! If you don't approve of my comments please free to delete them.
poor silly nolife-guest, search for another playground
"If the world could vote the American president (results from Oct 6, 2004; www.betavote.org):
- 87% (!) of all people in the world would vote for Kerry (incl. the US)
- 95% of all French would vote Kerry
- 94% of all Swiss would vote Kerry
- 94% of all Austrians would vote Kerry (hi Erich!)
- 93% of all Germans would vote Kerry
- 90% of all English would vote Kerry
- 89% of all Canadians would vote Kerry
- and so on and on "
I can only hope that today there "is" a God, one who cares enough about the world that he would not allow Bush another term as President.
I'm a 1st generation Canadian, those before me came from Germany... we know about "nutcases" (Hitler)... count me in the 89% of Canadians... as for Germany, at least they learned from the mistake of putting a nut in power... will the US?
Wonderful gallery, Erich! I especially like the Bush-Cheney picture. How true... Helen
I wonder who is dumber, Bush or those planning to vote for him ???
A great gallery! As we get closer to Nov. 2 my anxiety level increases daily.
Excellent Audio here Erich - accurate too! Toni
dude, i wonder if all nation saves their money spend on weapon and army, may be the entire world can be well fed and live happily... then there will be no war, i guess. =_+.
puppet on a string:
You guys obviously haven't seen who else is running for president besides Kerry or Bush, both idiots. Allow me to inform the masses of our multiple-party system:
Go Here for the REAL Candidates
Thank you for your time.
sorry, misspelled url:
Erich, have a look&read at:
don't forget to vote!
Well, as a Swiss guy, I should be neutral concerning inner-American affairs. But as the election does in fact concern the whole world I would like to share with you guys the preliminary result of an international internet poll.
If the world could vote the American president (results from Oct 6, 2004; www.betavote.org):
- 87% (!) of all people in the world would vote for Kerry (incl. the US)
- 95% of all French would vote Kerry
- 94% of all Swiss would vote Kerry
- 94% of all Austrians would vote Kerry (hi Erich!)
- 93% of all Germans would vote Kerry
- 90% of all English would vote Kerry
- 89% of all Canadians would vote Kerry
- and so on and on
Countries were Bush would win: Myanmar, Faroe Islands, Kuwait, Azerbaijan, Libya, Congo, Niger.
In ALL other countries Kerry would win.
So, probably most Bush supporters don't care about this figures anyway since they don't care about other countries but some might give it a second thought why you might not be so welcomed abroad as Americans as you were some years ago... (OK, this would mean you'd have to want to travel in the first place...).
I whish you an interesting election. Best regards, Urs (belonging to the 94% in Switzerland)
the usa would not need assistance if all you bush-loving yerks turn off their pcs and take the next airplane to iraq

French and German government officials say they will not significantly increase military assistance in Iraq even if John Kerry, the Democratic presidential challenger, is elected on November 2.
Mr Kerry, who has attacked President George W. Bush for failing to broaden the US-led alliance in Iraq, has pledged to improve relations with European allies and increase international military assistance in Iraq.
great work i enjoyed the look here.
Things need to change in this country. Whomever gets the next four years needs to overhaul this very broken place. Instead of ungodly amounts of money going toward worthless corporate interests (like this stupid war), wouldn't it be better utilized for narrowing the ever-widening gap between the rich and poor, and making sure every citizen has a right to an education and health care? As one who has lived in America all their life, I can say from personal experience that not everyone has equal opportunities here. No matter how hard some of us work, we get nowhere. And to top it off, our civil liberties are slowly being eroded after 9/11 due our government's lousy foreign policy and its failure to provide adequate security. Now, after "what couldn't happen here" happened, U.S. citizens are regularly harassed for such things as openly carrying a CAMERA on a public street. Liberty my ass! Vote John Kerry.
always troubles with your language, Tweedeldy ?
Idiots, not Optimists
Welcome to Kooksville. Optimists for Bush! Pessimist for Kerry.
Going through 9/11 in NYC, I saw the towers fall and smelled the stench of what was left. The war on terror has to be fought...but not alone. We were one country and one world wanting to get the people who did this. United we STOOD I am very ashamed of the president and what my country has done in the world. We need regime change here in America and I hope that after November 2 we will have an end to an error. Great Gallery God Bless America and God Bless the whole world.

Reading some posts below brought back memories. After my 1st vacation to Austria while stationed in Germany from 10/79-04/88 I thought "How does this country make it"? They do not build an auto, no US bases... Must be the countries beauty, the way its wonderful people treat tourists and being a more affordable place than most other countries to vacation. When my 8 month old daughter is old enough I will return again so she can experience to magic of Austria as I did many many times in that 8 1/2 year period.
Oh crud, Sorry - I was just going by what you'd written below. I didn't check your profile until just now. Heaven forbid I should confuse an Austrian with a German. Californian maybe, but never a German. Forgive me. How are things Down Under? ~LOL~ Now do you get it?
nc_coast: may i suggest that you take some lessons in geography ?
nc_coast: i will remove every long comment in the future, no matter if pro or contra
Thanks Erich for clarifying your position. Mud slinging (most of the comments below) is fine as long as we don't confuse it with FACTS.
I'm fast entertaining the opinion the USA should pull up stakes everywhere and let the rest of you have each other. You surely won't miss us and we would be a lot better off not wasting resources on you. Service to my country and tax dollars is my way of giving. My country in turn gives to the world. The way you whining useful idiots (those with the Manifesto know the reference), sheep with no shepherd, complain about everything and NEVER offer or support a solution is pathetic. We would be better off enjoying ourselves and spending our money on prostitutes than to waste one minute or one dollar on you.
Did you see the headlines today though? It looks like President Bush wants to give you your wish. How does -$100's of Millions out of the old Deutsch checkbook sound for next year Erich. Grosse Lieb Baby.
Earth first....We can mine the rest later!!!
go kerry in 04.
Now go out and VOTE.
Tim is just another USA Troglodyte, yap... Tim, crappy dog, you don't mind if I you call you so, buddy, since you've got no clue what it's " troglodyte", stinky Hillburry, so this is a compliment ! Swallow your hot dog, man, and ride Harley with Budweiser in your stomach or pans, however don't try to pretend that you're intellectual being, yo-yo-yo. Even bullshark is smarter than you. Hope it helps, greetings from Holland.
Whoever runs this site is fun , I guess
Kerry is surely Osama bin Laden's, and Saddam Hussein's choice for president. They would love to have a whimp in the White House.
It's sad that john kerry is the best the democrats can do; truly a sad testimony to the health of the democrat party if john kerry is the best they've got. He is a loser, a flip-flopper, and a whiner and cry baby. His only hope is to try to convince a lot of gullable people that there is something wrong with the USA. Any good news of the USA is bad news for kerry, because his only hope in the election is to wish for bad news so that he can continue to try to slander and ridicule the President.
Only a coward like kerry would sling mud at our President, and then get up on his soap box at the convention and challenge him not to answer back. Just like the pussy he is to do the name calling, and then try to run and hide. We need a man of character in the White House, not a woosie.
Most kindergarteners have suffered worse trauma than what kerry got medals for in Viet-Nam. He is a disgrace to the US military and to the country as a whole. The charade of him throwing his medals is a true testament to his real character (or lack of character, to be more accurate).
He is a loser. Now that more people are getting to know the real john kerry, it's all downhill for the Bush campaign from here till November.
It's very sad that people turned this great site in arena for political, and not always justifiable debates. Your collages are smart and very sharp, at the same time directed against "bushemania" or paranoia of global dominance, if you wish.
As for trigger happy and bloodthirsty "hawks" who cannot just get rest... It's very pitiful to see you, guys, having practically no choice for oncoming elections, looks like the times of Roosevelt have been gone forever.
Also there is something else for you to think about; there was never, in the whole history of human civilization , an empire of true evil ( you might think whatever you want about yourselves, but this is exactly the world's perception of USA ) which fought against the whole world, was hated by everybody and still survived ... Shortest by survival time examples; empires of Napoleon and Alexander the Great. So, put the guns on the shelf and pick up cameras :-)
nc_coast: deleted one long comment from you - don't confuse a gallery with a discussiongroup, if you feel the need to argue with people then subscribe to a newsgroup or use the pbase.forum for politics
Do you recon he was being set up by all you smart guys?
I'm saddened by this. It just makes me sad.
I posted this elsewhere on your site but wanted to make sure it found its way here.
I wanted to thank you for the great logo you made for my anti-bush graphics site:
I applaud you efforts. You work has a a great feel to me. There will always be right wing jackasses to deal with but I figure if you are making them mad and making the right thinking folks happy you are doing your part. Hopefully you are generating some votes.
From the moment that Bush was appointed in a historically unprecedented Supreme Court 5-4 split decision, he has run amok. In every regard he is the worst president I have ever seen in my 32 years. I find myself musing sometimes what it would be like to agree with a single domestic or foreign policy decision made by the Bush administration. Try as I might, I can't find one. I was glad he appointed Colin Powell but he blew that by marginalizing his good advice and co-opting his once internationally respected reputation for honesty to spread his lies and "faulty intelligence". I argue that the real faulty intelligence lies with the roughly 50% of our country that loves the guy.
The escape hatch from this social and political disaster is available to Americans on November 2nd. The nation could not wait to throw his daddy out. People of all ages, races, sexes, and economic background came out to send the guy back to private citizenship. We must do the same this time around. The very veracity of his first election is the most challenged in the history of our country.
Remember what the first term has been like:
1) Historically massive job losses
2) A dramatic turn from the largest budget surplus in the history of the country to the largest budget deficit in the history of the country
3) Imposition of the Doctrine of Preemption, a policy that by its very nature depends on the ability of our government to access absolute iron clad intelligence about the capabilities of the country's enemies. The unbelievable level of inaccuracy in our intelligence has clearly shown this national security policy to be completely untenable.
4) The first attack on the United States since 1949 despite clear indications from the same intelligence services that a large attack was coming in several months in advance. There were clear indications that the attack would likely come in the form of a hijacking and the administration never even sent a memo to the airlines suggesting heightened threat. The perpetrators of the attack are for the most part still at large and planning new attacks. Yet Bush claims he is keeping up safe.
All of that and much, much more was accomplished in a short three years while facing the need to run for reelection. Just imagine how he will act when he has a 4 year lame duck administration with no need to face reelection. He simply HAS TO GO!
Sorry to be so long winded...
Hating Bush and Loving It!
hear is a good one.
here;s a little reminder people....why did we go to war in IRAQ...oh yeah to get the WMD's so....where the F#$K are they.... but the president seemed to be sure he knew where they were and he had to convince the american public of it....
Quoted directly from the 2003 State of the Union Address:
"Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent. In such quantities, these chemical agents could also kill untold thousands. He's not accounted for these materials. He has given no evidence that he has destroyed them.
U.S. intelligence indicates that Saddam Hussein had upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents. Inspectors recently turned up 16 of them -- despite Iraq's recent declaration denying their existence. Saddam Hussein has not accounted for the remaining 29,984 of these prohibited munitions. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed them.
From three Iraqi defectors we know that Iraq, in the late 1990s, had several mobile biological weapons labs. These are designed to produce germ warfare agents, and can be moved from place to a place to evade inspectors. Saddam Hussein has not disclosed these facilities. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed them.
The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed in the 1990s that Saddam Hussein had an advanced nuclear weapons development program, had a design for a nuclear weapon and was working on five different methods of enriching uranium for a bomb. The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa. Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production. Saddam Hussein has not credibly explained these activities. He clearly has much to hide.
The dictator of Iraq is not disarming. To the contrary; he is deceiving. From intelligence sources we know, for instance, that thousands of Iraqi security personnel are at work hiding documents and materials from the U.N. inspectors, sanitizing inspection sites and monitoring the inspectors themselves. Iraqi officials accompany the inspectors in order to intimidate witnesses.
Iraq is blocking U-2 surveillance flights requested by the United Nations. Iraqi intelligence officers are posing as the scientists inspectors are supposed to interview. Real scientists have been coached by Iraqi officials on what to say. Intelligence sources indicate that Saddam Hussein has ordered that scientists who cooperate with U.N. inspectors in disarming Iraq will be killed, along with their families.
Year after year, Saddam Hussein has gone to elaborate lengths, spent enormous sums, taken great risks to build and keep weapons of mass destruction. But why? The only possible explanation, the only possible use he could have for those weapons, is to dominate, intimidate, or attack."
lies lies lies....
explain to me why is the intelligence still so messed up? you want this man and this administration running this country? now please why should i vote for GW and his posse??? please don;t let me hear the blame game either!!!
i don't like people who hide themself and talk out of the dark - if you don't stand to your opinion keep it for yourself, so easy
Hey, what happened to my comments? Ooops, my bad. This is Erich's gallery and he can censor what he wants to.
Canada - I don't know one American that badmouths Canada. I don't know one American that complains about the couple billion of our defense budget that we spend on NORAD every year. We love you guys. But you can "Bite Me" anyway.
HUgh - I had written earlier you link is a riot. Too funny man.
Just to give a little more neutral view:
Click on "This Land" with Bush & Kerry together, turn up your volume, then sit back and enjoy. This might cool us down a little.
Hey Erich! Why would not you simply dispatch away ( or erase ) all these insane comments from overly exited and sexually challenged Americans? They all think that they are the center of Universe, however, in reality, nobody of them gives a shit ( or fuck ) about the rest of the world and all they do is to,- care about own internal political games of so-called American "football ", including all famous morons and sick politicians who should go through psychiatric evaluation ???!!!
This country deserves nothing more, but terminal punishment for all of them !!! I have a right to say so because I live in Canada and I am totally disgusted by what I see around here and sick politicians that kill people around the globe... Hey, Canada is, in fact, just a piece of junk and prostitute of American punks. Keep doing a great job, and Viva Europe and death to USA !!!!! Sorry for rudeness but enough is enough .
So called Christian, hahahahhha
Shameful right wind bastards....Don't want to tolerate anything that is different even if it won't hurt anyone. What oppressive, soulthirsty and relentless actions they do. What pity for their helpless victims including gays and free speech doers.
God Almighty its the blame America poster boy. Please enlighten me as it is so dark inside. Your piece is so laborious to read I dont know where to start. Im sure when I awaken Fahrenheit 9/11 will make perfect sense to me. How do sheep sound? Why is it that a conservative view is narrow-minded and a progressive view is correct? See: 1984, its a good read. This is what theyve been preaching at the Universities for 40 years now. Were finally there in our Brave New World. See:
You guys need to get some new punch lines. The source is NOT us; we are just the latest in a string of nations that have outpaced the pissed-off stagnant third world countries. In 70 years we went from flying kites to walking on the moon. Most countries still dont bathe and they dump their bedpans into the street. Man, we are so damaging to the world.
Ok, let's talk history. WRONG; they DO hate us because of who we are. Been there, done that, got shot at for it. Anybody that is not on their knees six times a day is as good as dead to them. Havent you been watching NBC? It is exactly as you wrote; because we are partners with Israel (America, not necessarily you personally) and mostly Christian, is exactly the reason they hate us. In that way ONLY are we partly responsible for anything related to 911. The fact that we have a strong, openly-Christian president makes peoples blood boil. Last time I read the amendments though there wasnt one that said, The First Amendment doesnt apply to you if youre the President. The second half of the amendments religion clause is so pesky to some folks, or prohibiting the free exercise there of,. Lots of folks would rather forget that one altogether.
This war started when Abraham chose Isaac over Ishmael and Isaac chose to follow God. The Arabs have been P.O'd at Israel ever since. A couple thousand years later and the Christians have a prophet. This pisses the Arabs off even more and after several hundred more years, the Arabs now have their own prophet and their own Muslim religion.
If I understand you correctly, youre saying that America is now responsible for all of the Imperialism over the past 1400 years. This loony argument is ONLY reasonable if one is angry at us because their country hasnt achieved anything better for itself since they discovered round wheels rolled better than square ones.
As far as helping those that now hurt us. Some of are best friends have been sticking it to us for years, and we still buy their vinegar and potato water. They dont have a saying that an enemy of my enemy is my friend for nothing. It is unfortunate that we as a nation choose to help countries that will not help us. Its a sickness. I dont hear a lot of anti-US rhetoric coming out of Eastern Europe these days though.
Were we Imperialists say, in WWI? How about WWII? In WWII we liberated a lot of countries that were Imperialistic; France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany. A lot of African colonies got their independence AFTER WWII (which we won by the way). Funny, most Africans dont hate us; right funny thing though. I dont recall America having any African colonies (unless you want to count Sierra Leone).
America is hated more than the terrorists? Are you on crack cocaine? I saw quite a few pictures of Iraqis kissing pictures of President Bush and waving the American flag during the past year. What channels are you watching?
Do President Bushs personal intentions align with the vast right-wing conspiracy? Hes a shady one that President Bush. Shouldnt you have written by all legal means possible? You wouldnt want the black helicopters appearing over your house some night (just lookin out for you bro). Ok, we know you guys hate the President because (remember, after six Florida recounts and the later media funded recount, he still won) you point a lot of fingers blaming Bush for this, Bush for that, Bush, Bush, Bush. I assume hes responsible for everything from WWII to Vietnam in some way too.
Neither you nor your representatives have even hinted at a different solution to any of the stuff you're crying about except that "HE NEEDS TO GO!" Talk about being stuck in a box. You've got the same old lame sociali... sorry, "Forward Thinking" line as Howard Dean.
Do you seriously think next January the terrorists are going to just quit? Ok, your turn.
To nc_coast and those who don't want to think outside: You will know you have awakened when you think into detail, an activity Bush hopes you will not do. If you look into history, you will realise that all those hatreds against the USA are not what we think. They don't hate us because of who we are, they hate us because of what we did. Western imperialism, the crusades, support for Israel etc. Also bear in mind that we supported what we call enemies now. We supported Sadam against Iran and gave him those WMD that we have been crying about. We supported the Taliban against the Soviets during the Soviet-Afghan war. We gave them training and weapons including the dreaded stinger missle for them to use against Soviet helicopters. We called them freedome fighters, but now we call them terrorists. The IRONY! We are partly responsible for events like September the 11th and we refuse to recognize the truth but to simply bow to our emotions and to Bush. We are fighting terror by creating more terror. Bush says the world is better off because of his actions, but there are more terrorism, more hatred etc. America is now more hated than the terrorists themselves. Bush makes his actions look good for the people, but long terms results states otherwise. He surely has his personal intention that he does no want to say publicly. Are we in WW III? Yes, in the eyes of those involved. Who started it? That is insignificant. What is the problem? We are only making it worse through our actions. We have ignored what caused terrorism against the USA and are trying to solve the problem without thinking about the source that is feeding terrorism, which is us. It is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. I am saying we should ignore terrorism? Of coarse not, I am angry about 9/11/01 like any other American, but we need to correct ourselves about the way we handle terrorism. There are lots of obvious mistakes in our war, but Bush thinks it is just part of the process, but no, it is a sign that we are doing something wrong. Bush has caused tremendous damage to the world and to the USA. He must be out of office by all means possible or else we suffer another four years with him. We must first stop feeding terrorism, tighten our secrurity, and fight the radical individuals directly without hurting other people or giving those indivuduals indirect support.
Great stuff! As an American, I am disgusted & disheartened that so many other Americans still blindly follow & believe in Bush & his cronies. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.
comments from Ethan Tweedie will be removed, no matter what he is trying to say - he does not accept comments, so why should i keep his narrowminded bullshit
Hugh Tsung - About your previous post....
1) Marine Barracks, Lebanon
2) USS Cole, Yemen
3) Cobar Towers, Saudi Arabia
4) World Trade Center, NY USA
5) Pentagon, Washington DC, USA
That's five times we were "under attack" that I can think of off the top of my head. We are IN WWIII. Wake Up!
You sure love to steal up a lot of space don't you Ethan? A neat trick Bush uses when he just want's to fill in time in speaches by tumbling on words. All to often you hear him say: "UUuuuuummmm" "the...the...d...d...d....the........" No wonder he graduated with a 2.3 GPA at Yale. I wonder if Barbara did better than her father.
Erich, don't worry about your contributon to American election campain, these dumbasses will vote for him again ! You're smart fella' , and everybody with brains supports you, yet... As long as they're in trouble with stagnated economy , they'll move from one conflict to another, just to drive public attention fron internal problems. Expect another "freedom" crusade when they elect this morron again !
Erich -- To express your views is all well and good, but that's not what you're accomplishing here. You're not offering anything productive; you're simply a child throwing a tantrum. Your tirade is just contributing to the current political situation where there's nothing good to support on either side of the fence.
Herman Goering was right about one thing: "To drive a nation to war is easy. All you have to do is to convince the people that they are under attack and accuse the pacifists for having a lack of patriotism."
Exactly what America is now going through. Citizens decieved into believing the government's agenda and horror stories. Those who protest are ignorantly shrugged off as commies, pussies, wienners, hippies etc.
richtig gelesen im profile - möchtest ein bissl auf deutsch weiterplaudern ?
chorus: GO BUSH, GO - BUTT GO
What wrong Erich Mangl (not from america)? This "Popeye" and a few Marines would like to give you our opinion! Why dont you, and your European butt buddies stay out of our business!! GO BUSH!!
Your not even an american (Erich Mangl).
Popeye? I put on the uniform 14 years ago, in that time I have been in two wars and have lost friends along the way, while punks like yourself bitch about the government. What have you done? Smoke to much pot?
Popeye the Sailor ?
I am Sailor serving in a Marine unit that has just returned from Iraq. Kerry's strategy to defend freedom and democracy is nothing more than to surrender America to the enemies. This is not acceptable. Leadership in difficult time requires moral strength to stand for your ideals to lead the country and the free world. To bad the left is blinded by it's rage - it sad.
ooh, "the king" !
saw him last time in las vegas, he stood in front of a casino and invited me in
You'd have to find your ass first.
I think I will print out all of these wonderful pictures and wipe my ass with them when I take a shit! How's that grab your ass? Ha Ha Ha!!!!! Yeah, vote for Comrade Kerry and Hillary and all the other damn commies!!
All you Liberal Commie bastards suck ass! Idiots? Yeah ,sure, whatever. All Liberals want to do is: 1. Take my stuff 2. Take my money 3. Tell me what is "correct to think and say" Now, isn't that special! And also, every damn thing in the world is America's fault! Well, screw all of you! It isn't our fault and there are a lot of a-holes out there that need a good old fashioned Ass-Kicking! Who the hell cares what the rest of the Socialistic, commie countries think of us? We always bail their asses out of any problem! Look at the Frenchies! They can't fight their way out of a wet paper sack! Couldn't in WW I, WW II, and they have the audacity to tell us what is right or wrong? I think not! Again, typical liberal commie crap. You all suck ass! Suck my ass morons! You suck!
history will judge our great nation poorly!
I sense a deep dislike for Bush. That I don't care about. But it seems you have even deeper dislike of God. I did like your scripture reference on Matthew 25:40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
It is true that seemingly the US has made a mistake. That I struggle with.
But there is much more to life then democrats and republicans. What if....this scripture above was true??? I think we'd all be guilty of crimes against humanity.
and rather then answering to a fragile, dying jew on a cross we would be answering to 'The King'
Oh I love that...'The King!!'
Not sure those who would disagree with the ideas presented here within these images posess "lower intelligence". I think they just choose not to think. That may translate into lower intelligence as a resultant symptom, but I like to always think there is still hope, even among the right wingnuts. Great gallery, thanks
I enjoyed seeing the freedom of speech here, and well done, all of you.
Excellent Stuff !!!
so much effort - so little true intelligence.
Do something real with you life rather than this childish scribbling.
Thank you for the "note for those with lower intelligence." Why can't everyone be of higher intelligence like you? The world would be such a better place. Keep on keeping on.
obviously there is none - but: anyone better than the current warlords
Food for though
US deserves criticism like any other nation. I understand that you don't like Bush and some of the US policy.
That's fine, but judging from your displays, you choose very primitive approach. Both artistically and intellectually.
(Pretzel theme -- weak point and will be dated very soon)
I don't know the reason for that. It could be an "inferiority complex." It could be short-sightness of "Your sight of things" or... "hopefully" it's just plain youth naiveté. In which case you still have some room to grow.
I suggest reading material:
"Death by Government"
by R.J. Rummel.
If you are against war (like me) this book will dramatically broaden your horizon and maybe it will give you an ammo for the future art.
Wouldn't your time be better spent focusing on a better alternative such as Kerry/Edwards?
Everyone has different political thoughts, and that is OK. You seem to have some strange religious thoughts, though, especially linking them to politics. You may want to take a close look at that and give it some more thought...
Great gallery! These images reflect the way that millions of Americans feel about our current situation. Don't hate us, just hate our government!!
"& co": rumsfeld rice ashcroft etc etc
Thanks for the clarification, Erich. I was just a bit fuzzy on what "& Co." meant.
no - read again what i wrote :-)
Just curious. Are you saying that those who disagree with you are intellectually challenged?
Das ist ganz nette Uberruschung, sehr gute und witzig Arbeit ! Bravo ! Ich glaube das haben Sie viele "Freunde" in USA gemacht, ah ? Also, musst man night zu fergessen das diese Leute haben ihr President ausgewahlt... Enschuldigung fur die Grammar. Outstanding gallery, lots of fun. You will be probably surprised , yet they will vote for Bush again, hahahaha. Bis bald
After seeing this one I tought about you. Maybe you could be interested in comenting that fine art work ;-)
Nice job. I'm sure you get your share of hate mail from the intellectually and morally challenged. Keep up the good work.
These are amazing..... Keep it up
Einfach SUPER,Du hast ein paar fantastische Galleries.
more more! these are great
