Bush is at it again, LORCA

LORCA = Loyalty oath related campaign activities

Gotta love a man with a firm grip on the world. Today georgie boy admitted that he and his family and anyone else who is filthy rich doesn't pay taxes and that it would be too hard to collect them so why even try:
US President George W. Bush today said there was no point in taxing the rich because they just dodged their tax bill anyway.

"Real rich people figure out how to dodge taxes," he said during a campaign stop in suburban Washington.

Mr Bush's rival in the November 2 election, Democratic Senator John Kerry, has pledged to scrap the president's tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans in a bid to rein in the record US budget deficit.

Mr Bush said: "You've got to be careful about this rhetoric, we're only going to tax the rich. You know who the - the rich in America happen to be the small business owners."

So which is it george, are you saying that the rich don't pay taxes, but small business people are rich, which means they don't pay taxes, but you are implying that they do pay taxes, but they are rich, so they must find ways around paying taxes, cause the rich don't pay taxes. Excuse me sir, but are you a fucking clueless idiot? Seriously are you?

Today though we are treated to another example of Loyalty Oath Related Campaign Activities wherein another poor family is given the heave-ho at a bush appearence because of t-shirts:

George W. Bush's T-shirt police got their family.

Campaign workers removed the Millers -- Marvin, Barbara and Theresa -- from Wendler Arena on Thursday minutes before the president's motorcade rolled up.

The Midland clan's offense?

Barbara Miller, a 50-year-old chemist for Dow Chemical Co., had carried in a rolled-up T-shirt emblazoned with a pro-choice slogan.

"I thought I might be cold," she said of the NARAL Pro-Choice America message on the cotton shirt, size large. "I use it for running. I never even thought about the message. I just wanted to see my president."

Jennifer Millerwise, a Bush spokeswoman, defended the campaign's right to kick out attendees suspected of aiming to spoil an event meant for supporters.

Lets take a look at what passes for maniacal paranoia a defence:

"Sadly, there are people who try to enter these events with the goal of disrupting these events for people who have worked so hard and want to hear the president speak," Millerwise said. "It really is unfair to those people."

Barbara Miller said a young male campaign worker confiscated the offending apparel upon the family's 4:30 p.m. arrival. He returned with two others and asked the trio leave about an hour later.

"They obviously were searching for us," said Marvin, 53, also a Dow chemist. "And they came for us.

"I was probably voting for Kerry before. Now I'm 100 percent sure. Maybe I'll start campaigning for him. Maybe I'll start fund-raising."

He said the person who took his wife's T-shirt told them, "We don't accept any pro-choice, non-Republican paraphernalia."

Welcome to the fascist paranoid idiocraty that is my country, at least if bush is around. BrownShirts-R-US. And they get updet when we suggest that they are thugs............My gast has permanently been flabbered.
