think that George Bush has America's interest
at heart? Here are three simple tests for you:
No. 1: This test is designed to see if Our George
has been taking care of business in the three
years since his brother elected him. Has he been
keeping our nation's infrastructure in good repair?
Or have the neo-cons just been pocketing the bucks?
Here's the deal: On September 19, 2003, let's
all turn ON everything electric we can think of:
Our air conditioners, photocopiers, appliances,
table saws, whatever -- and keep them on all day
long (well maybe not the table saws). Then, at
exactly 6 pm PDT, let's all make toast, vacuum,
do the wash and blow-dry our hair. If the grid
holds, we'll know that Bush has been keeping it
maintained and repaired and hasn't sold America
out to Enron, First Energy, etc.
No. 2: Take your holiday vacation in Columbia,
Iraq, Israel/Palestine, the Philippines, Nigeria
or Afghanistan this year. If nobody shoots at
you, calls you an "Ugly American," throws rocks
at you or holds out their dead babies for your
inspection, then you'll know that Bush's foreign
policy might be on the right track. PS: Don't
take a camera. The thugs we pay to kill people
in these places may think you are a reporter and
fire their made-in-America rocket launchers at
you. And, if you select Iraq as your travel destination,
be sure to bring extra food and water to share
with our under-supplied troops (And while you're
there, ask Bechtel and Halliburton where the money
for our GIs' ration supplies went off to).
No. 3: No longer have a paycheck? No longer have
a job? Is your child's school floundering on a
sea of debt? Is your state about to go bankrupt?
If you criticized your government, might you land
in jail? Are the gasoline prices at the local
pump skyrocketing? Is the national debt up in
the stratosphere? Are you worried that your vote
is not being counted? Is your son or daughter
in danger of "waking up dead" in Iraq due to neo-con
ineptitude? Are you upset that Halliburton's Swiss
bank account only contains 12 billion dollars?
If you can give a negative answer to all of the
above, then George Bush is still your man.
after taking these three simple tests, you begin
to suspect that Our George is not passing Go but
is still collecting YOUR $200, then visit: bushrecall.org
and sign the petition.

feel good, in law it has absolutely no validity.
Presidents cannot be recalled.
