BUSH - Dereliction of Duty in 1972

Site:; sometimes funny, sometimes bitter.


An interesting effort to monitor Bush moving around London for the purpose of political pimp-slapping.

And according to the "Red" Ken, the Mayor of London, "I actually think that Bush is the greatest threat to life on this planet that we've most probably ever seen. The policies he is initiating will doom us to extinction."

The most interesting thing about this quote - one must nuance one's objection:

Nuanced Objections to Red Ken's Quote:

1. The Giant Meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs was huge - and it could happen again!
2. Mere vast decimation of multiple species populations isn't necessarily forever.
3. Massive flooding of worldwide seaboards and global warming will only "force us to move north and inland" not "doom us to extinction."
4. Speaking of threats, today I "saw" the sun. At any moment, that thing could totally fucking explode!
5. By "us," does that include Americans?
6. Rapidly increasing disparities between rich and poor only usually cause civil war. Even then, most people who stay home live.
7. We can't rule out better lives on other planets.
8. Look, he's not the only one initiating these policies, if you know what I mean.
