Dear Friends,

I have finally found what G.W. can do after his "reign" in office finally comes to a close. Hell, if things keep going his way, he may even be allowed to do it from behind bars.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/...

If only he could live out his dreams without hurting anyone else? - I would be the first to buy. Perhaps he and Falafel-man can get together and publish?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The "failed presidency" of Jimmy Carter provided the leverage for him to do some truly wonderful things in his "retirement."  I doubt that things like his Habitat for Humanity work would have been very likely for a former Georgia governor.

    Maybe he'll fill out a roundtable discussion on Fox News... if they're still around in 10 years, that is.

      he ran his first company into the ground, and was bought out by his dad's buddies.  He was on the board of the company that bailed him out, and he was so disinterested that one of the board members suggested he quit.  Sometime later, he did, and bought into the baseball team.  But they didn't let him run it.  Some things are too important.

    convicted of a crime, he may get a pardon, he may even get sentenced.

    But in ten years, it'll all be over.  His Arab investors will be done with him, and he will be slinking around with a select group of mafioso-appearing cronies, unable to appear in public for fear of getting shouted at, pissed on, put down, or otherwise reamed out.

    You'll never see him on an airline flight, and you'll never see him at a restaurant unless his friends have bought the place for the night.

    He will be forbidden, on medical grounds, from driving on public roads.

    His Arab investors will be done with him.

    He'll have a book, and the "Christian" (so-called) followers of Falwell, Dobson, etc., will buy it, but it will have been co-written by some quasi-journalist shill.

    People will groan every time his name is mentioned.

      As his presidency crumbles around him, Bush -- each day drunker than the next -- begins to find the taste of lead tempting.  In a little case in the Oval Office is Saddam Hussein's personal revolver...

      Note to FBI informants: before you start looking for me, please note that this is not a wish-fulfilment fantasy nor something I want to happen to Mr. Bush, and I indeed hope that he survives his term to be held to justice for his crimes against humanity.  It is, however, something that I can easily imagine our increasingly deranged President contemplating.  Not only isn't he the smartest egg in the carton, his shell is just a little bit cracked.

    If there is any justice in this world, the whole lot of them will be hung for the traitors that they are.

    It is not up to the Hague to put them in prison for war crimes, although they certainly could.

    It is up to the American people to stand up and say that we will not stand for OUR Constitution and OUR Civil Liberties to be trashed, and let the perpetrators get away with it.

    It's time to put an end to the Wars - all of them - the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the undeclared War on the Middle Class.

    We are supposed to be a democratic republic, a peace-loving people. Why is everything that comes out of our government a War on Something?

    They have used those Wars against American Citizens to criminalize us and incarcerate us at rates unseen in any other developed country. It's allowed the militarization of our police forces so that they are no longer trained to 'Protect and Serve', but 'Us vs. Them'. Against their neighbors.
