“My Fellow Americans! I Am Lying!”

bush-obama lying to americans

The liar-in-chief is going to lie tonight.
They’re hyping up some shit that is really not our fight.

Obama’s in bed with the war profiteers,
who are playing on our ‘weapons of mass destruction’ fears.

This is just another ‘dog and pony’ show
so that we can watch the warmonger’s profits grow.

They don’t give a damn about the people of Syria.
They lie to us to cause mass hysteria.

They’ve bombed people here and they’ve bombed people there
and we are to believe that this time they really care?

What about the seniors who are missing meals?
Who cares about the homeless and their many ills?

We can fund another war, but we can’t help the poor.
When the poor ask for help, there’s a sign on the door.

“Go elsewhere! Sequestration’s in place.”
“Take your ragged backpack and get out of our face!”

The people of this country are suffering, that’s true.
But Syria is in trouble and we’ve got to bomb them too.

Priorities! Priorities! We’re going to do what’s right.
“Hungry seniors go without! “We’re bombing Syria tonight!”

Of course I have read that Obama is ‘open to a chemical weapons plan’. Apparently, it is Russia to ‘our’ rescue again. Remember Edward Snowden? President Vladimir Putin stated that he ‘was tired of having to clear up the mess that the U.S. starts in the Middle East which then gets his country embroiled in. And now John Kerry and the Obama Administration are trying to save face by stating that the threat of missile strikes on Syria prompted the Russians to quickly come to heel. Excuse me, but it has been quite obvious to me that Russia is not ‘terrorfied’ of us and is trying to head off yet another fiasco that will be caused by the U.S. government butting its depraved, evil nose in another country’s business. What is the U.S. going to tell Israel since Israel has been gleefully awaiting airstrikes on Syria? I mean we are such ‘terroribly’ good friends with them, much to the chagrin of the Palestinians. No matter, Obama will still face the American people tonight and lie like a rug!

  1. The Israelis for one, also the Saudis. And not to mention those who own stock in companies that build and sell arms and those in the government who benefit from awarding their friends, military contracts. The warmongers and defense contractors benefit. Peace doesn’t sell when you’ve got the biggest military in the world. It gives them an incentive to find an excuse ANY excuse to start a war.
    Companies who provide arms especially to the U.S.

    United Technologies – profits in 2011 – $5.3 billion
    L-3 Communications – profits in 2011 – $956 million
    Finmeccanica – profits in 2011 – $3.2 billion
    EADS – profits in 2011 – $1.4 billion
    Northrup Grumman – profits in 2011 – $2.1 billion
    Raytheon – profits in 2011 – $1.9 billion
    General Dynamics – profits in 2011 – $2.5 billion
    BAE Systems – profits in 2011 – $2.3 billion
    Boeing – profits in 2011 – $4.0 billion
    Lockheed Martin – profits in 2011 – $2.7 billion

    ..and no, I don’t benefit nor would I because I believe in peace and if it were up to me, there would be no defense contractors awarded huge sums to arm us to the teeth when we’ve already got enough weapons to destroy this planet many times over while hungry children go to bed on empty stomachs, people walk the streets for lack of a home, people die needlessly due to their inability to afford health insurance. We’ve got so many people who are suffering in this country and yet our everlasting goal is to find someone, somewhere to engage in war. It is insanity!

  2. 57. While the civil war in Syria has been in the spotlight for the past two years, another civil war in Sudan has been going on for much longer. The administration is eager to punish the Assad Regime for using chemical weapons with military force, citing a moral stand. Why wasn’t the administration actively seeking authorization for military force in Sudan while the Sudanese government was trying to ethnically cleanse the non-Arab population in Darfur?

    Jerry, I just had to post this one. Although every question was an excellent question to ask, this one is the one that I would dearly love to hear the answer from the Obama Administration.

  3. Obama: Syria is ‘a danger to our security’ source:msnbcnews.com

    the absence of a direct or imminent threat to our security,

    Huh? WTF? Talk about a contradiction! This insanity is leading this country?

    Those were Obama’s words, so then, if there is ‘the absence of a direct or imminent threat to our security’ we have no valid reason, nor authority to militarily bomb another country. To do so would be against international law or it should be in any case. Obama did not make the case for a military strike in Syria, quite to the contrary. His reasoning did not add up as he neglected to mention the use of chemical weapons in Iraq AFTER in 1997, the United States Senate overwhelmingly approved an international agreement prohibiting the use of chemical weapons,

    Uh…Obama…chemical weapons were used in Iraq in 2003, so we’ve invalidated that agreement. Wouldn’t you agree?

    death over a thousand people, including hundreds of children. The images from this massacre are sickening, men, women, children lying in rows, killed

    In the above statement, he could very well have been speaking about Iraq!

    images of children writhing in pain and going still on a cold hospital floor, for sometimes resolutions and statements of condemnation are simply not enough.

    You are right about that! Those same images are occurring all across America and neither you nor congress are doing a damn thing to put a stop to it. Even with the Affordable Care Act, people are still dying for lack of insurance. You don’t give a damn about them, but you give a damn about the children of Syria? Hell if you do!!
