THE WORLD IS FULL OF PLOTS IF YOU'RE WILLING TO DIG...
Hola fellow writers, time for some Real World Horror to get your inspirational juices flowing and perhaps give your muse a swift kick in the ass. Long time Feo Fans know that I occasionally dip a toe into the political waters here at feoamante.com. sometimes you have to. I don't like harping on folks that originally made their name in Horror Thriller, but since Sarandon didn't keep that going, I guess this once won't hert.
SARANDON TIRED OF 'ANTI-AMERICAN LABEL
Poor baby! Susie thinks that, because she asks questions concerning
Bush Jr.'s upcoming War on Iraq, we (I don't know who she's talking about: we, them, they, not me, maybe you?)
have labeled her Anti-American. Relax Susie! We don't think you're anti-American
- just stupid! Most Americans welcome questions on Bush's policies concerning
Iraq. What's more, many discuss and debate them. But nobody - at least
in the public eye - is making the dumb ass statements you are making!
Take this true tidbit of news - a typical piece of Susie's mind:
"What's happened to Blair? I don't understand his reasoning or his logic. I
don't understand his evolution. I can see him being seduced by Clinton
but don't understand what he and Bush speak about."
Susie, I've yet to hear anyone, even the most flaming liberal, ever say something
like, "As reasonable as Susan Sarandon." or "As smart as Susan Sarandon."
The reason no one says that is because you are an ignorant kook!
Here are a few differences between Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr.
1. George Bush Jr. has never bombed Iraq. Bill Clinton did - for nearly two straight years. I don't think Saddam Hussien was particularly enthralled with
Bill the C. for doing so - even if Bill was a liberal Democrat. Funny how
you missed that, Susie. It is such common knowledge that Saturday Night
Live did at least one skit about it. South Park also made a joke about
The Arab world despised Bill Clinton for bombing Iraq so capriciously. That
and starving MILLIONS of Iraqis to DEATH! How "seductive"
was that? FUNNY how you missed it! The Arab world said that Bill
was trying to turn attention away from his public affair with Monica
Lewinsky by bombing Iraq under the guise of, chasing after Osama bin
Laden. Many news reporters and critics made comparisons in Arab newspapers
between a movie called WAG THE DOG and what Bill Clinton was doing.
Saddam despised Bill Clinton for threatening him AND bombing
Iraq. Many liberals have been goofing a whole lot of tripe about how
they "feel" for the innocent people of Iraq who will suffer
G. Bush Jr.'s U.S. bombs. How pathetically, hypocritically, two-faced
quiet you were over Bill Clinton actually, REALLY, dropping bombs
on Iraq. I didn't hear much crying over the Iraqi people then. I'm sure
that the "innocent Iraqi people died happily in the knowledge that
they were being blown to bits by a Democrat US President.
2. Bill Clinton never asked for the U.N.'s permission to bomb Iraq. He
just did it: Usually after a terrorist attack attributed to Osama bin
Laden. There isn't any evidence that Bill Clinton ever bothered to see
if maybe Osama was even living in Iraq at the time. Of course, that
information all could be kept top secret and hush hush! What IS clear is that George Bush Jr. has called upon the U.N. to make inspections
first. He has waited months to be absolutely sure there are no mistakes.
3. Bill Clinton never made the effort to actually go after terrorists.
He never cared, never bothered: no matter who was killed or how many.
That's why the al Qaeda thrives today and attacks the U.S., on U.S.
shores, killing thousands. George Bush Jr. on the other hand, waited
months to gather intelligence on the situation, to be absolutely sure
where those bombs dropped and the fighting was to take place in Afghanistan.
4. Unlike Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. has never imprisoned people based on race, country, or potential for disease (YET! And don't get me started on Ashcroft!). Remember how Bill Clinton
kept hundreds of Haitians with AIDS (or suspected
of having AIDS, or just being Haitian, which meant, to Bill, that they
had AIDS) interned in Guantanamo Bay EVEN THOUGH he felt it was illegal to do so? Remember how, during his presidential campaign in 1992, Bill Clinton called the Guantanamo camp "inhumane" and "illegal", but once he was president, waffled and decided not to do a DAMN thing about it? You should, at the 1993 Academy
Awards, you and Tim Robbins brought it to the public's attention.
So that's why we think yer a dipshit, Susie. Not anti-American; just not
very bright. Because all of this took place and everybody knows about
it but you - and maybe kids under 12! After everything that has happened
you are blithely wondering why Tony Blair has been "seduced"
by George Bush Jr. A capricious, bomb dropping, innocent slaying, mass killer of millions President
like Bill Clinton you can understand, but not Bush Jr.
Try to improve your mind, Susie: Read a book. Hell, read a couple of books - and
don't be frightened to read books, newspapers, magazines and articles
written by people you may not agree with. Open your mind. Expand your
horizons, engage in active discourse and debate instead of single stripe
salons and monologues. Your stunted capacity for reason and logic just
