chappell, chappell,
where can you be?
chappell, chappell,
come back to me
the lj'ers need you, the well has run dry
if we can't find you, i'll bet that we'll cry
chappell, chappell,
oh can't you see?


*sniffle*

and, in curiosity, is anyone actually voting FOR Bush?

I don't think I'm misinformed.....
and he's got my vote. Not that I think he'd be the best of presidents...I just think he's the lesser of two evils.

Re: I don't think I'm misinformed.....

It seems that most everyone is voting for whom they think is the lesser of two evils this year... though I'd be interested in hearing the reasons why you believe Kerry would be the greater evil.

I'm probably voting for Bush. Kerry scares me more. Its true.

I wish the democratic primaries had gone to Edwards, 'cause it'd be a no brainer to vote for him.. but everyone was so wound up into getting "The Anti-Bush" that they went too far left for my tastes.

honestly, I have no idea who I'm going to vote for. my liberal friends tell me Kerry is best...my conservative friends tell me Bush is best...hell, I may end up voting for Nader just because I can't bear to pick between Bush & Kerry. seriously, if I can decide which of them I hate less than the other, I may vote that way...but if not I'll end up standing in the voting booth, biting my nails and debating whether to vote for Nader and wash my hands of both the others.

I've never really had much sympathy for people who are registered and don't vote because they say "the candidates don't represent them." but this year--man alive. *shudder*

small consideration for people about to make the mistake of voting for bush PART 1
limited to 4300 characters so i'm posting in two parts... maybe 3... we'll see.

---------------------------------------------------------------
George Bush Resume
GEORGE W. BUSH
The White House, USA

PAST WORK EXPERIENCE:

I ran for congress and lost.

I produced a Hollywood slasher B movie. (ok so he may have one redeeming quality - mr. c)

I bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas; company went bankrupt shortly after I sold all my stock.

I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using taxpayer money. Biggest move: Traded Sammy Sosa to the Chicago White Sox.

With my father's help (and his name) was elected Governor of Texas.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

I changed pollution laws for power and oil companies and made Texas the most polluted state in the Union.

I replaced Los Angeles with Houston as the most smog ridden city in America. Cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas government to the tune of billions in borrowed money. Set record for most executions by any Governor in American history.

I became president after losing the popular vote by over 500,000 votes, with the help of my fathers appointments to the Supreme Court.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PRESIDENT:

I attacked and took over two countries.

I spent the U.S. surplus and bankrupted the treasury.

I shattered record for biggest annual deficit in history.

I set an economic record for most private bankruptcies filed in any 12 month period.

I am the first president in decades to execute a federal prisoner.

I am the first president in US history to enter office with a criminal record.

I am the first year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by any president in US history.

After taking the entire month of August off for vacation, I presided over the worst security failure in US history.

I set the record for most campaign fundraising trips than any other president in US history.

In my first two years in office over 2 million Americans lost their job.

I cut unemployment benefits for more out of work Americans than any president in US history.

I set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a 12-month period.

I appointed more convicted criminals to administration positions than any president in US history.

I set the record for the least amount of press conferences than any president since the advent of television.

I signed more laws and executive orders amending the Constitution than any president in US history.

I presided over the biggest energy crises in US history and refused to intervene when corruption was revealed.

I presided over the highest gasoline prices in US history and refused to use the national reserves as past presidents have.

I cut healthcare benefits for war veterans.

I set the all-time record for most people worldwide to simultaneously take to the streets to protest me (15 million people), shattering the record for protest against any person in the history of mankind (http://www.hyperreal.org/~dana/marches).

small consideration for people about to make the mistake of voting for bush... part 2
I dissolved more international treaties than any president in US history.

I've made my presidency the most secretive and unaccountable of any in US history.

Members of my cabinet are the richest of any administration in US history. (The 'poorest' multimillionaire, Condoleeza Rice, has a Chevron oil tanker named after her).

I am the first president in US history to have all 50 states of the Union simultaneously go bankrupt.

I presided over the biggest corporate stock market fraud of any market in any country in the history of the world.

I am the first president in US history to order a US attack and military occupation of a sovereign nation, and I did so against the will of the United Nations and the world community.

I created the largest government department bureaucracy in the history of the United States.

I set the all-time record for biggest annual budget spending increases, more than any president in US history.

I am the first president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US from the human rights commission.

I am the first president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US from the elections monitoring board.

I removed more checks and balances, and have the least amount of congressional oversight than any presidential administration in US history.

I rendered the entire United Nations irrelevant.

I withdrew from the World Court of Law.

I refused to allow inspectors access to US prisoners of war and by default no longer abide by the Geneva Conventions.

I am the first president in US history to refuse United Nations election inspectors (during the 2002 US elections).

I am the all-time US (and world) record holder for most corporate campaign donations.

My biggest lifetime campaign contributor, who is also one of my best friends, presided over one of the largest corporate bankruptcy frauds in world history (Kenneth Lay, former CEO of Enron Corporation).

I spent more money on polls and focus groups than any president in US history.

I am the first president to run and hide when the US came under attack (and then lied saying the enemy had the code to Air Force 1)

I am the first US president to establish a secret shadow government.

I took the biggest world sympathy for the US after 911, and in less than a year made the US the most resented country in the world (possibly the biggest diplomatic failure in US and world history).

I, with a policy of 'disengagement' created the most hostile Israeli-Palestine relations in at least 30 years.

I am the first US president in history to have a majority of the people of Europe (71%) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and stability.

I am the first US president in history to have the people of South Korea more threatened by the US than their immediate neighbor, North Korea.

I changed US policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded government contracts.

I set all-time record for number of administration appointees who violated US law by not selling huge investments in corporations bidding for government contracts.

I failed to fulfill my pledge to get Osama Bin Laden 'dead or alive'.

I failed to capture the anthrax killer who tried to murder the leaders of our country at the United States Capitol building. After 18 months I have no leads and zero suspects.

In the 18 months following the 911 attacks I have successfully prevented any public investigation into the biggest security failure in the history of the United States.

I removed more freedoms and civil liberties for Americans than any other president in US history.

In a little over two years I created the most divided country in decades, possibly the most divided the US has ever been since the civil war.

I entered office with the strongest economy in US history and in less than two years turned every single economic category heading straight down.

RECORDS AND REFERENCES:

I have At least one conviction for drunk driving in Maine (Texas driving record has been erased and is not available).
