Why cannot I dream upon an American Cloud?
Except, I must hold myself continuously down.
Climb the mountain of my special potential,
Except to gravitate increasingly negative.

Liberate words upon their Constitutional meaning,
Then to be conservatively segregatively be imprisoned.
Cannot they see, the spreading wings of the eagle?
Cannot they see, my the faith praying independently?

Must one conform to Republican Guantanamo standards?
That will brand International Law and Supreme Courts.
Putting labels on humanity, sentencing them away for eternity.
Denying them faith of a Constitutional right of a trail by peer.
Or must they be judged, by an Republican dictator for life.

Can I not, bleed in the color of international equality?
Or must I be conservatively superior to other conservatives.
Who claim God guides them to wars of destruction and maim.
I am my own enemy, for I dream of peaceful liberal coexistence.
My words need not condemn the French, Canadians, Germans,
To claim weapons of mass destruction for political gain.

Why must poetry be banned in any conservative White House?
Must poetry emulate a President as a divine superior human being?
Or can it feel the streets pain, poverty, disillusionment, its sorrows?
From words digging in human compassion for others in dire needs?

Must an American become French, German, Liberal, by executive privilege?
I want to become a rainbow child, of a greater diversity of allies.
I want to be educated within culture, and different religions, getting along!
In order, to shake hands, with fellow Americans, as brothers, and sisters.
Yes, I am my own worst enemy, for feeling compassion, tranquility, peace.

The tears inside me, are my worst enemy, that people can ban their eyes.
But still seek the gossip of bigotry, bias, hatred of being judge and jury.
To lay waste upon those selected to be the enemy of state and religion.
Faith is not judged by others opinions but the divine truth inside a person

Yes, I am my worst enemy, speaking out from words so blessed,
With the heritage that was born proud in me, in a spirit of pride.
That no conservative, will ever have the right to ban that dignity.
For my worst fault is, that I salute my country’s true independence,
Come hell or high water, from sea to shining sea, dreaming free.
My Own Worst Enemy, respecting a red, white, and blue flag,
Of our independence, shared from one to another in love.

Sometimes you must succeed, for everyone has failed you.

If in abstract absurd distortions, people condemn you for writing about it, you may have succeeded; if they have opinions questioning it, with their own abstract absurd distorted way of thinking.

Things have to be too extreme, for people to then moderate about it; unfortunately, a forest does not grow overnight
(Being a little ornery: Things have to be too extreme, for people to then moderate about it; fortunately, a Bush does not grow overnight ).

If it were left to politicians, we would have nothing to talk about, for they would have banned all the words as obscene, except the ones on the floors of Congress, where everything goes.

If you were a Republican, they might ban you as a Liberal; if you were a Democrat, they might ban you as a Conservative; so where does an American moderate from?

I had a nightmare last night that I was imprisoned at Guantanamo by Executive Privilege, on American conservative intelligence, claiming me a Liberal terrorist, then being judged by FoxNews! Talk about a WMD scenario, the truth never had a chance to report itself, in a ‘fair and unbiased’ defense of myself. To make matters worse, Judge O’reilley Factor sentenced me 24/7 to listen to him and his loose bowels. I mean vowels, now that is pure mental abuse and against all Geneva Conventions principles, further more it stinks, you know the less smelly kind. Just then, a preacher on TV shouting, saved me. I yelled, “Halleluiah, Thank you, for I have seen the light Lord, for surely I had just seen pure hell.

for he never shuts up a sentence that I was sentence to hear him all the tine

If China with American corporate help, is banning the words Freedom and Democracy, then we must liberate the words Communist and Red back into China, to show them our democracy. Let the smaller real China that supports Democracy and Freedom be free to practice it. For must America, bow our heads to a foreign invader, with no religious values. I say. support the words that our soldiers are fighting for, have Congress and a President stand up. to these words worldwide by using Red China and Communist China as a label of our independence. It is not a Liberal thing nor a Conservative thing to do, but an American thing to do. It is sad that the word PROFIT, can make us a terrorist, to our own American political, and religious values. God bless America in Freedom and Democracy forever!

A Bush Presidential speech in China. I want to thank the ‘blankey-blank’ people of China, and how they respected Hong Kong ‘blankey-blank’ and ‘blankey-blank’. One of my goals is to support ‘blankey-blank’ and ‘blankey-blank’ here. I also want to protect ‘blankey-blank’ rights and ‘blankey-blank’ rights. Values we have help installed in Iraq by giving them ‘blankey-blank’ and ‘blankey-blank’. American soldiers going out in the field to give them ‘blankey-blank’ and ‘blankey-blank’ rights. I am sure the people will under stand my words, for I am a ‘blankey-blank’ President. ‘Blankey-blank’ bless you.
