Bush: Opium growers(al-Qaeda faithful) choice for president-for-life Jan. 2009

According to Fox(Faux) News(I'm providing a negative Fox report about their boss, George W.--not to be confused with Rupert Murdoch), opium cultivation has yielded plenty of heroin for the globe's numerous devotees to consume.

"KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.N. anti-drugs chief announced Saturday a "staggering" 60 percent rise in opium cultivation in Afghanistan this year, and demanded the government arrest scores of major traffickers and remove corrupt officials and police who are profiting from the trade.
The record crop yielded 6,100 tons of opium — enough to make 610 tons of heroin — outstripping the demand of the world's drug users by a third.
"The news is very bad. On the opium front today in some of the provinces of Afghanistan, we face a state of emergency," Antonio Maria Costa, chief of the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, told a news conference after presenting results of its crop survey to Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
"In the southern provinces, the situation is out of control."
The bulk of the increase was recorded in lawless Helmand province, where cultivation rose 162 percent and accounted for 42 percent of the Afghan crop. The province is currently wracked by an upsurge in attacks by Taliban-led militants that has sparked the deadliest fighting in Afghanistan in five years.
The rise comes despite an injection of hundreds of millions in foreign aid to fight the drug over the past two years. Costa criticized the international effort, and said foreign aid was "plagued by huge overhead costs."

The only problem for Bush is that synthetic heroin makers, the pharmaceutical industry, are dismayed at the stiffening competition. At this rate, popular synthetic heroin addicts, such as Jack Osbourne of The Osbournes Fame, might popularize the use of illegal street heroin instead of their products. The pharmaceutical industry doesn't like competition and have bankrolled GOP candidates with vigor in the past. In recent polling by the Islamic Polling Project of Dubai, 85% of all al-Qaeda faithful throughout the world rate Pres. Bush as the greatest president to ever serve in the office (no word if Zogby, the fav pollster of the AR GOP, has conducted a similar poll). The U.N. consider the development a state of emergency. Some success story for democracy Afghanistan has become, just like that wonderful success story in Lebanon after Hariri's assassination for the Bush administration. The Taliban have a source of cash to conduct their war against infidel sympathizers like Karzai and al-Qaeda and their sympathizers against the possibility of a new civilian government in Iraq capable of providing relative security and essential services citizens require. Today, I read a news crawler on the NBC Today show that the Kurds have begun to seek permanent seperation from Iraq. Partition has begun and our Turkish allies have to be dismayed at the news, since they have fought an intermittent war with Kurds that has cost the lives of 25,000+ in Turkey. The disasters and potential disasters continue to mount for this president. At this rate, it's beginning to look as if God is expressing his DISPLEASURE at Dubya's election by religious zealots who claim to speak in his name, according to their own beliefs about wars, rumors of wars, and natural disasters.

Apparently, activist warmongers are a hell of a lot more dangerous than the so-called "activist" judges of GOP lore who fuel their hate campaign against rank-and-file America with their consent at the ballot box (at least enough for GOP faithful to help steal elections ala Florida and Ohio for their party). Opium production thrives and the next generation of terrorists are receiving valuable training for the future as the Bush administration continues to bungle their responsibility to preserve the Constitution. $8 trillion dollars of debt to the like of China, Japan, Mexico, Israel, and scores of other countries not nearly as great as ours cannot possibly be considered as wise conservative policy. Read some of the quotes of likely voters across America as election coverage intensifies from this weekend until November and they whine that voting for a Dem challenger of their failed GOP representatives and senators is a vote for more "liberal" interests. Geez, if tolerance of an $8 trillion dollar national debt isn't akin to the mythology promoted by the GOP of "liberal" Democratic tendencies, I don't know what could possibly qualify as liberal policy on the economic front. It's time people were enlightened in the mechanics of the english language and learn what the words commonly used in political speech and commentary actually mean. According to M-W dictionary, the definition of conservatism is:

"Main Entry: con·ser·va·tism
Pronunciation: k&n-'s&r-v&-"ti-z&mFunction: noun1 capitalized a : the principles and policies of a Conservative party b : the Conservative party
2 a : disposition in politics to preserve what is established b : a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change 3 : the tendency to prefer an existing or traditional situation to change."

There has been a great change in the earning power of the former American "middle class" during conservative governance's reemergence after their failed time in office during the early years of the Great Depression. Preserving social institutions is not exactly what has happened in Iraq or Afghanistan the past W. years as overnight, the conservative peoples of those two lands were told to form a radical constitution with a reverence for rule of law and the ballot box. Free and fair elections in Iraq promote more instability in Iraq than stability as Iraqi men-in-the-street await the next strongman to take over the government and impose a reactionary plan of promoting order, much like Saddam accomplished. Many folks who live in the more chaotic zones where the Mahdi army doesn't provide security from Sunni terrorists yearn for the days of Saddam's brutal control over the nation compared to the Americans' callous response to the needs of ordinary Iraqis to have a nation where it's safe to actually venture into public without fear of murder by roving executioners or assorted preferred methods of mass murder by the nation's myriad terrorists and sympathizers.

What's so conservative about this GOP? Other than their hollow observance of the three Gs and their traditional he-man values on the use of military force (not that too many REALLY believe this conflict all that important since so few actually enlist to uphold their values on this disastrous conflict in Iraq), NOTHING! Maybe someday, Japan, who proclaimed its freedom from America in the early nineties in the book Japan Can Say No , will call in their loans along with China, Mexico, Israel(not likely after $20 billion in aid and taking foolish advice from Dubya on Lebanon policy that brought them into a hollow military showdown with Hezbollah and destroyed a country that truly seemed to be moderating toward MORE democracy, at least outside the Hezbollah/Iranian direct sphere of influence), and others will call in their notes and begin to say 'NO!' to providing more bond purchases. What an "abrupt" change that prospect could spark!

At least, if the nation descends into a deeper abyss, we can all forget our troubles and start using the widely available new street heroin that should be making it to our shores every hour from Helmand and other al-Qaeda controlled areas of Afghanistan. Congratulations Mr. Bush on five of the most reckless years of presidential administration in American history. A 162% increase in cultivation of practically any crop is phenomenal growth no matter what the crop.
