Lockdown for a Lunatic

This is getting out of hand. Four more days and Il Diablo arrives on our fair, and until very recently anonymous, shores for the APEC meeting which begins on 7th September. The city has gone into lockdown with special event road closures, Friday being a public holiday to deter people from entering the city, FA18 Fighter Jets, armed Black Hawk Helicopers, vehicle inspections and the 10 foot wall enclosing half the city – Christ we even bought a water cannon so that the protesters can enjoy being swept of their feet by an unprecedented pressure hose. All for one idiotic man that just can’t keep his mouth shut. Not content now with fucking up Afghanistan and Iraq he’s launching into the Iranians.

All this fuss for the man who said

"I'm the commander — see, I don't need to explain — I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being president."

"I saw a poll that said the right track/wrong track in Iraq was better than here in America. It's pretty darn strong. I mean, the people see a better future."

"I'm also not very analytical. You know I don't spend a lot of time thinking about myself, about why I do things."

"Iraq is a very important part of securing the homeland, and it's a very important part of helping change the Middle East into a part of the world that will not serve as a threat to the civilized world, to people like -- or to the developed world, to people like -- in the United States."

"The solution to Iraq -- an Iraq that can govern itself, sustain itself and defend itself -- is more than a military mission. Precisely the reason why I sent more troops into Baghdad."

Any luck he’ll catch Horse Flu while he’s here and drop dead!

Ah - horse flu... that would be nice. It's gas that they have all of that security for the man when he's visiting one of Americas so called closest allies in the War of Terror... Is no where safe for the guy? Oh - there's always albania. They love him there.

The thing about il Diablo these days is that he's a powerless figure more or less... I don't think anyone is going to let him invade anymore countries... And he's out of the job come january 2009 - can't come soon enough.

New stats out today . . . Overall, 28% of Americans say that they approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president, 65% disapprove, and 7% are undecided. I just know that every time that prick opens his mouth pure unadulterated junk comes out of it. Can't stand the man. Let's give the US its first representative black or female president!

And re the lockdown - they're even taking a load of native animals from Taronga zoo to Garden Island (military base) so that the wives and concubines of visitors can cuddle a koala more securely . . . there may be snipers at the zoo!

John Rockwell said...

For a man that spends a lot of time "defending freedom" he certainly is unpopular.. How Johnny H got voted back in after he sold his soul to Satan I'll never know. I hope none of the wives and concubines catch that terrible Koala Chlamydia....

Baino said...

G'day John thanks for dropping in. I hope you do it more often. And I loved your contribution to the Podcast, you're very knowledgeable.

Interestingly enough (or worryingly) the news tonight declared that 4 out of 10 Australians are concerned about Il Diablo and his policies. Only four out of ten! WTF is the world coming to? We are the most apathetic nation on earth. The other six are probably downing tinnies and worrying about the fact that the Spring Racing Carnival has been cancelled due to horse flu!
And Mr H is only there because at the moment there's simply NO alternative. This is the hardest election I've had to deal with. Cheers :)

Yep, I can see that kangaroo in a bandana armed with an Uzzi...

I don't know why the man doesn't just say when he opens his gob: "See here, I'm a jerk. I believe in fucking up other countries, I believe in being a twat. I like to be bully and I really am pretty thick. I like to talk a lot and it's important that I make no sense - I don't know why, of course, but I know it's important."
That kinda sums it up, doesn't it.
I find it hard to believe that there's anyone out there who actually still takes him seriously - the fact that there are such sorts is deeply indicative of the insane nature of certain humans. I advocate frontal lobotomies for such sorts.
Rant over.

Since I dream of an apolitical world ruled over by me as a benevolent dictator, where all members of the Irish Government and their party lackeys (roughly 10% of our population) will be executed, I quote:

'Tell the lie; make it simple, make it easy. Repeat it often enough and soon they'll believe it'

Bush could have said that, but it was Hitler. WMDs, Ayran supremacy, it's all the same bullshit. Why exactly is Bush visiting Oz?? Come to see if the toilet does flush the other way round?

Baino said...

AV: Justified rant but I think he's already had a frontal labotomy, they obviously didn't take a big enough chunk
Daz:The parallels are stunningly scary what's worse is there's some puppeteer with his hand so far up Il Diablo's arse that he can move his mouth.

And toilets flush the same all over the world and no, the water doesn't drain out of the sink in the opposite direction . . don't you watch MythBusters?

(He's coming as a member of APEC but I'm guessing you knew that cos you're a braniac)

Jefferson Davis said...

I'm just surprised that the man knew what the word, "analytical" meant. :)

Yeah, he's a bastard!

I'll have you folks in my wee prayers. :)
