THE TAO OF DUBYA
By Poor Daddy Nov 17th 2006 at 7:45 pm EST
It took 30+ years, but bush finally made it to VietNam!
Then, proving to 2/3 of America that knows hes an idiot that he's an idiot, says the lesson we have to learn from VietNam is DON'T QUIT!
What about ... you can't beat an insurgency on their own soil?, or when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging?, or get the hell out of other people's civil war? or even something simple like tell the people the truth? But no, the lesson he learned was DON'T QUIT. I'll bet in his spare time he hits his thumb with a hammer cuz it feels so good when he stops! or shoves ever larger pretzels down his throat cuz it feels so good when he quits chokin'.
Ted Koppel on the Daily Show a couple nights ago said "20 something years ago george bush went to Washington to avoid going to VietNam. Now he goes to VietNam to avoid Washington."
Now I don't care who ya are, THAT'S FUNNY!

Not much is funny to a man of my experience...
George bush went to Washington to avoid going to VietNam. Now he goes to VietNam to avoid Washington." ...Bwaaah..hahahahahha
Bush does at times bring me to hysterics...
humour is sometimes on the edge of tragedy.
In Viet Nam he also says, "it's just going to take a long period of time" for "an ideology of freedom to overcome an ideology of hate. Yet, the world that we live in today is one where they want things to happen immediately."
"We'll succeed unless we quit,"
Haahahahahaha What in the world is he trying to say? There is a polarity between freedom and hate? And that these are ideologies? Where's the love? That's the opposite of hate. Where are the prisons? To have your rights taken away is the opposite of freedom. Then he ends it up a profound revelation about success...Bwaahahahah
As for local Vietnamese, the turnout for Bush as his motorcade moved past storefronts was far more subdued that the enthusiastic reception that greeted President Clinton six years ago. A few people waved, but most merely watched impassively. Weary of war, many here deeply disapprove of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
I just hope that they have a sense of humour.
The Tao of Dubya
by William Thomas
Is Bush on the beam? Is the world’s most churchgoing country truly following the path pioneered by sages? Or savages?
To find out, it seems appropriate to compare Dubya’s most noteworthy sayings with the aphorisms of one the world’s first great teachers, Lao Tzu (pronounced Lao “Tsay”). As a seeker of the Way that brings harmony to all human relationships and actions, Lao Tzu’s insights have inspired millions over millennia to follow his one-line prescriptions for right action that are so simple each can take a lifetime to master.
As leader of the world’s biggest rogue nation, committed to inspiring—through aerial bombardment and invasion if necessary—the 95% of humanity living outside its borders to find the same paths of violence, consumption, racism, graft, addiction and religious fundamentalism that has made the United States of America what it is today, Bush usually has something interesting to say on issues concerning us all. His firm grasp of logic known only to himself, his playful command of language, and his ineffable links with a bearded vengeful God who sent him to get Armageddon rolling have made him an American leader unique (many hope) in his qualifications to head an office to which he has yet to be elected.
