Two Numbers – ONE BIG, one small

$9,100,000,000,000

Nine TRILLION, one hundred BILLION…

Remember another number.

Two.

During the reign of King George W. Bush, just TWO of his failed policies have cost Americans $9,100,000,000,000.

What two failed policies are those?

The Bu$h tax cuts, and the creation of a Rx (prescription drug “benefit” written wholly by Big Pharmaceutical industry cronies.

The U.S. Census Bureau’s most current estimation of the population of the United States places 308,171,505 people in the United States as of December 17, 2009.

Put another way, that’s a cost of $29, 529 per person.

As a result of deregulation of the financial industries – banks, insurance and stock brokerages – thus creating one giant incestuous financial orgy, Americans have directly suffered under the thumbs of bankers and insurance companies, while their Wall Street cohorts, in conjunction with imaginative thieves, have twiddled and fiddled to create “investment derivatives” – essentially a Ponzi schemed fiscal fraud – out of thin air. That house of cards having collapsed, has revealed what was suspected all along. Outside the transparent dressing room of his glass house, the king had no clothes.

Driven by greed and an insatiable lust for more, Wall Street’s evil inventions will never satisfy such incorrigible human appetite.

The cost of the Bu$h economic collapse alone – from revenue loss to increased use of assistance programs and unemployment compensation – has cost the American people $3,500,000,000,000.

And, while the bitter taste of the actions necessary to prevent the Great Depression II continue to linger in the mouths of the Congress, everyone agrees – it was necessary. Thus, the $900,000,000,000 required to stave off – not “fix” – the Bu$h(it) economic collapse is another reminder of the Bu$hit deficit.

The unpaid $700,000,000,000 George W. Bu$hit Rx medication/drug bill lingers yet.

These figures aren’t pie-in-the-sky. They’re from the Office of Management and Budget.

Americans just need a kiss, because we’ve already been screwed.

And then, there’s the fact of his criminal behavior which was in the form of his flouting at least two federal laws requiring the White House to maintain electronic records of all records, including e-mail. General Counsel of the National Security Administration, Meredith Fuchs said, “many poor choices were made during the Bush administration and there was little concern about the availability of e-mail records despite the fact that they were contending with regular subpoenas for records and had a legal obligation to preserve their records.”

Executive Director Melanie Sloan of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said, “It seems like they just didn’t want the e-mails preserved.”

Forget “Presidential Pants and Penis Prosecution.” This is criminal activity – plain and simple. George W. Bush should be indicted on federal criminal charges, and subject to house arrest until time of trial.

Utter incompetence and outright thievery… hallmarks and legacy of the George W. Bu$hit administration.
