On Tuesday January 31, 2006 the President delivered hi State of the Union Address. In
reality the title should have been “State of Bush’s Fantasy Address”. Most television
channels made sure to show the address live, but they failed to show other happenings.
Two examples are 1) The many protests going on in cities around the country at the
same time, 2) Cindy Sheehan arrested and taken away for wearing an anti war t-shirt,  
just before our dictator came out to address the people. In reality Bush was only
addressing the 30 percent who approve of the job he is doing. You can’t count the
number of television sets tuned in with nobody watching. (i.e. Factories witch allow
employee break areas to watch television but it has to be tuned to the channel
approved.) Then you have the foreigners in attendance, how are they part of the union?

Nothing that I heard gave the real state of this union. So I would like to break it down and
give the real state of our union. I will be referencing Bush’s lie to the union address.
 
What is the state of our union?

Bush: To confront the great issues before us, we must act in a spirit of goodwill and respect for one
another — and I will do my part.  Tonight the state of our Union is strong — and together we will make it
stronger.

It is not strong, it is getting weaker everyday. Laws are passed against the union and
when questioned about it, the president pretty much tells us to call someone who cares.
If our Union were strong, this mad man would be impeached and put on trial immediately.

Bush: “Abroad, our nation is committed to an historic, long-term goal — we seek the end of tyranny in
our world.  Some dismiss that goal as misguided idealism.  In reality, the future security of America
depends on it.  On September the 11th, 2001, we found that problems originating in a failed and
oppressive state 7,000 miles away could bring murder and destruction to our country.  Dictatorships
shelter terrorists, and feed resentment and radicalism, and seek weapons of mass destruction.  
Democracies replace resentment with hope, respect the rights of their citizens and their neighbors,
and join the fight against terror.  Every step toward freedom in the world makes our country safer — so
we will act boldly in freedom’s cause.”

As always he makes sure to throw in 911. You will notice he mentions freedom quite
often. He does not mention the fact that telling lies to declare war will feed resentment
and radicalism.

Bush: “Their aim is to seize power in Iraq, and use it as a safe haven to launch attacks against
America and the world.  Lacking the military strength to challenge us directly, the terrorists have
chosen the weapon of fear.  When they murder children at a school in Beslan, or blow up commuters in
London, or behead a bound captive, the terrorists hope these horrors will break our will, allowing the
violent to inherit the Earth.  But they have miscalculated:  We love our freedom, and we will fight to
keep it.”

The only people I see using the weapon of fear is American and British government.
When they shoot innocent Brazilians in a London subway, or shoot mentally ill on an
airport runway, or arrest peace activist, the governments are hoping to break our will.
We do love freedom, and the only people we need to fight is the people taking that
freedom. Those who allow the passing of laws that hinder that freedom!

Bush: “In a time of testing, we cannot find security by abandoning our commitments and retreating
within our borders.  If we were to leave these vicious attackers alone, they would not leave us alone.  
They would simply move the battlefield to our own shores.”

Why would any enemy want to fight us within our own borders? It is inside our borders
that all of the surveillance is done.

Bush: “The road of victory is the road that will take our troops home.  As we make progress on the
ground, and Iraqi forces increasingly take the lead, we should be able to further decrease our troop
levels — but those decisions will be made by our military commanders, not by politicians in
Washington, D.C.”

I thought Bush already declared victory? What Bush is saying here is he will make those
decisions. By using the term military commanders he means the chief.

Bush: “We also show compassion abroad because regions overwhelmed by poverty, corruption, and
despair are sources of terrorism, and organized crime, and human trafficking, and the drug trade.”

Sounds like he is describing America!

Bush: “They also deserve the same tools they already use to fight drug trafficking and organized
crime — so I ask you to reauthorize the Patriot Act.”

I ask you, who has the Patriot Act been used against? The Patriot Act is a tool only a
dictator would need.

Bush: “It is said that prior to the attacks of September the 11th, our government failed to connect the
dots of the conspiracy.” …….. “The terrorist surveillance program has helped prevent terrorist attacks.  It
remains essential to the security of America.  If there are people inside our country who are talking with
al Qaeda, we want to know about it, because we will not sit back and wait to be hit again.”

Our government still has not connected the dots of the conspiracy! ……. So now we
know the term al Qaeda is referring to activist groups.

Bush: “Our economy is healthy and vigorous, and growing faster than other major industrialized
nations.  In the last two-and-a-half years, America has created 4.6 million new jobs — more than Japan
and the European Union combined.  (Applause.)  Even in the face of higher energy prices and natural
disasters, the American people have turned in an economic performance that is the envy of the world.”

This is a plain lie. Our economy is not healthy. Those 4.6 million new jobs are where?
Wal-Mart and McDonalds! Meanwhile China gets our good paying manufacturing jobs.
The number of jobs don’t mean anything if the job does not pay enough to afford gas to
get there. Thats 4.6 million people still living below the poverty level, only now they can
say they are employeed. We need 4.6 million good jobs like the thousands of jobs that
are getting cut from Ford and General Motors.

Bush: “One out of every five factory jobs in America is related to global trade, and we want people
everywhere to buy American.  With open markets and a level playing field, no one can out-produce or
out-compete the American worker.”

Global trade? We created global trade by sending our jobs to other nations and
sending the product back for us to buy. China sends us their restaurants and we send
them our factories, that doesn’t sound like fair trade to me.

Detroit – On Sunday February 5, 2006 Television sets all over the world will tune in to
watch one of the biggest events of modern entertainment. This event may prove that the
Super Bowl and everyone behind it is lending a hand to block the first amendment of the
Constitution. Is this just another step to protect the security of America, or is it simply to
protect the name of our great ruler?

This years Super Bowl is bound to be a great show for football fans everywhere. For
The Seahawks, this will be their first ever Super Bowl game. That alone will make this a
big event, but throw in the Steelers and it becomes that much bigger. Sports Bars will be
filled, many people will be having Super Bowl parties all across the country. Once every
year there is a Super Bowl, it is almost a holiday and to some it is.

Last year more than 133 million American television sets were tuned in to view the Super
Bowl, figure the number of people watching each television and that adds to quite a few
Americans. Throw in 225 countries and territories and that equals a potential 1 billion
viewers worldwide. Now that is one heck of an audience for one event! With numbers
like that, it is no wonder the Super Bowl is the highest rated event on television. The
money comes rolling in.

Super Bowl XL will be held at Ford Field in Detroit on Feb. 5 and will be broadcast on
ABC at 6 pm Eastern.

Sprint will sponsor this years Halftime show which will be performed by none other than
the Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones will be taking a short break from their “A Bigger
Bang” world tour to perform for the Sprint Super Bowl XL Halftime Show. For many, the
halftime show might be more entertaining than the game itself, but don’t count on it. If
you are betting on this years game, you may also want to bet that the Rolling Stones will
have their performance toned down. Just don’t make your bet over the phone, chances
are big brother will be listening in on your gambling activity.

John Legend and Joss Stone will join Stevie Wonder to perform the Pre Game Show.
Aretha Franklin and Aaron Neville will sing the national anthem, accompanied by New
Orleans pianist Dr. John, but the big show will be the Halftime Show Produced by Don
Mischer Productions.

It is believed by some that the Rolling Stones has a lot of weight to push when it comes
to the ratings. My personal opinion agrees. The Rolling Stones Halftime Show could be
bigger than the whole first half of the game. Will the Stones have any surprises up their
sleeves? Lets hope we don’t see Jaggar’s nipple.

Steve Bornstein, the NFL’s executive vice president of media and president and CEO of
NFL Network said, “We are excited to welcome one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands in
history to the Super Bowl, As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Super Bowl this
season, it is fitting we work with The Rolling Stones whose music has thrilled audiences
around the world for years.”

The excitement is great, but for those of us who believe in saving the 1st Amendment
their is a whole other side to the story. The Rolling Stones is prohibited from performing
their new song “Sweet Neo Con”. We can’t have anyone using the halftime show to take
a swing at our mighty dictator. To prevent a woman from foolishly exposing herself on
television is one thing, blocking freedom of speech is another.

Steve Gaffney, Sprint’s director of sports marketing says, “Sprint’s sponsorship of the
Super Bowl XL Halftime show highlights our commitment to fans of the NFL and the
Rolling Stones, We’re looking forward to providing fans the opportunity to participate in
the halftime show like never before.”

Steve Bornstein and Steve Gaffney don’t care about what Rolling Stones fans want or
think, they care about the money and the ratings. It is fitting that the Rolling Stones
should be able to perform any song they want. They aren’t providing an opportunity,
they are taking away an opportunity protected by the Constitution of the United States.

Will the Rolling Stones be good little boys and stick with the agreement, or will they use
the spirit of rock n roll to stick it to the man? It is likely they will do the show as agreed.
They’ll put on the best show possible, but they will not be playing “Sweet Neo Con”. If
they were to break their agreement and try to play the song, the network would move
quickly to a commercial break. They would also be sued for breaking the contract. So
there is no reason to believe the Stones would try to pull a stunt like that. Still, there is
no doubt do so would be a bigger bang.

The greedy corporate yes-men would also get a bigger bang for their buck, but you
won’t find them betraying their mighty chief anytime soon. They can curse on television
programs, they can show cartoons with sexual reference, but they better not allow a
song to be performed which offends the liars in office. Sweet Neo Con is possibly the
most censored song at present time. Nobody dares play it over the air.

Free Speech is prohibited at this years Super Bowl. One Billion people worldwide will be
watching America stop free speech and most of them won’t even know it. We can’t just
blame the President and his administration anymore, the blame also lies on those who
allow this to happen. You can thank the NFL, ABC, and Sprint for helping to trash the
constitution. Why worry? As Bush would say, “It’s just a goddamn piece of paper!”
