George W. Bush Is Worthless
via AlterNet's PEEK:



George W. Bush Is Worthless

Posted by Melissa McEwan, Shakesville at 6:48 AM on December 7, 2008.

The f***ing-off into oblivion of our current lame duck of a president cannot happen quickly enough.


The fucking-off into oblivion of our current lame duck of a president cannot happen quickly enough. At this point, he's essentially just some asshole who dropped a rancid fart in our vicinity and is hanging around to revel in how much it disgusts the rest of us.

With the economy deteriorating rapidly, the nation's employers shed 533,000 jobs in November, the 11th consecutive monthly decline, the government reported Friday morning, and the unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent.

The decline, the largest one-month loss since December 1974, was fresh evidence that the economic contraction accelerated in November, promising to make the current recession, already 12 months old, the longest since the Great Depression.

..."We have recorded the largest decline in consumer confidence in our history," said Richard T. Curtin, director of the Reuters/University of Michigan Survey of Consumers, which started its polling in the 1950s.

...Economists are estimating that the gross domestic product is contracting at an annual rate of 4 percent or more in the fourth quarter, after a decline of 0.3 percent in the third quarter.


Check out the list of the most-emailed stories in the New York Times' Business Section:

1. A Rush Into Refinancing As Mortgage Rates Fall
2. Washington's New Tack: Helping Homeowners
3. With Saturn, G.M. Failed a Makeover
4. Harvard Endowment Loses 22%
5. Retail Sales are the Weakest in 35 Years
6. Advertising: This Season's Must Have: The Humble Coupon
7. Back on Capitol Hill, Auto Executives Still Find Skeptics
8. Market Place: Fortress, the Hedge Fund, is Crumbling
9. Publishers Announce Staff Cuts
10. U.A.W. Makes Concessions to Help Automakers


Yowza.

"Dick Cheney and I do not want this nation to be in a recession. We want anybody who can find work to be able to find work."--George W. Bush, 60 minutes II, CBS, December 5, 2000.

Of course the dumbass meant to say "we want anybody who wants to work to be able to find work." Nevertheless, he and Dick Cheney might not have wanted the nation to be plagued by a recession and high unemployment, but I guess they wanted two wars and some tax cuts more. Lucky us.

4. As soon as he's gone, everything will start being Obama's fault.
The Obama Recession, the Obama Iraq War, the Obama Katrina failure. You know the drill. Anything bad is the fault of Obama or Clinton, if not Carter or FDR. Everything good is due to bush, bush, or St. Ronald. It's tiresome, and so very, very predictable.

They are already blaming Obama for the recession and he hasn't even been sworn in yet.

10. George W. Bush is NOT worthless!
The U.S. Bureau of Chemistry and Soils invested many a hard-earned tax dollar in calculating the chemical and mineral composition of the human body, which breaks down as follows:

65% Oxygen

18% Carbon

10% Hydrogen

3% Nitrogen

1.5% Calcium

1% Phosphorous

0.35% Potassium

0.25% Sulfur

0.15% Sodium

0.15% Chlorine

0.05% Magnesium

0.0004% Iron

0.00004% Iodine

Additionally, it was discovered that our bodies contain trace quantities of fluorine, silicon, manganese, zinc, copper, aluminum, and arsenic. Together, all of the above amounts to less than one dollar!

Our most valuable asset is our skin, which the Japanese invested their time and money in measuring. The method the Imperial State Institute for Nutrition at Tokyo developed for measuring the amount of a person's skin is to take a naked person, and to apply a strong, thin paper to every surface of his body. After the paper dries, they carefully remove it, cut it into small pieces, and painstakingly total the person's measurements. Cut and dried, the average person is the proud owner of fourteen to eighteen square feet of skin, with the variables in this figure being height, weight, and breast size. Basing the skin's value on the selling price of cowhide, which is approximately $.25 per square foot, the value of an average person's skin is about $3.50.

Also, consider the likelihood of certain 'pharmaceuticals' being present that would add to his value. He could bring as much as $3.95 or $4.25 even!

14. Mea culpa. A person speaking on condition of anonymity...
has informed me that G.W.B. does indeed have real value, albeit negative, potentially far in excess of the paltry amounts I estimated upthread. Toxic waste disposal companies are positioning themselves for the anticipated lucrative contract that could be worth millions.
