As General “I am the least clueless Bushco stooge” Petraeus testifies before a Congress that has no intention of stopping the War in Iraq, America settles in for our sixth year as an Imperialist Occupiers in a formerly sovereign nation we invaded illegally to serve the monetary and ideological interest of George “the Torturer” Bush and Dick “Plame Treason” Cheney and their pals in the Oil Corps and The MIC. A million dead, a trillion spent. No real hope in sight. The world waits with bated breath to see what solution The General will advise…”More Time!” The General cries, “More Money!…..More….. Friedman Units!”
His solution? MORE OF THE SAME! KEEP GOING!! DAM THE REALITIES, FULL SPEED AHEAD!!!
We don’t need no stinking measly little six month Friedman Units!
We need McCAIN UNITS! This last six years have gone so well, it is obvious to anyone (anyone like me, who doesn’t know the difference between Shia and Sunni)that we now need a series of SIX YEAR units!!! Yea, unto a hundred years, which is (counting on fingers) only sixteen more McCain Units from now! After all, I will be long dead so what do I care what the fuck irresponsible positions I take!
And thus was the McCain Unit born.
Picture this, if you will: You are on an island (America) that has very little food, (oil) you have a boat, but the boat was so poorly planned and built (Iraq invasion) that it is not seaworthy enough to sail to a new land and secure food. Your plan? Throw more money into the boat. No, you do not use the money to make a better boat, you just throw actual palettes of cash into the boat. Your main rival for food, (China) seeing how foolish you are being adding all of this huge weight to your now sinking boat. The boat sinks lower and lower under the weight of all that cash until finally it sinks….taking, of course, all the cash with it.
You are out of cash, out of ‘food,’ have made no other plans, your island is sinking because of climate change brought on by your addiction to ‘food’….and your rival now demands its money back, bankrupting you.
You have just entered the Republican Twilight of America Zone.
