The Bush Bullies live large. They have much, spend more, and take millions of loyalist down the path with them. In order to be a Bush you must be well trained, educated at Andover, Yale, and Harvard. One must know how to seize power while play-acting as though you have none if they want to be a Bush.
To be a Bush, a person must adopt a look of dopey diligence. They must seem hard-working while doing nothing. What an individual needs to do to be a Bush is appear less than bright or intellectual. They must smear those that are truly sharp or smart. To be a Bush, one must be sly and skimming; this takes brains however, it requires no depth or conscience. Actually, those are an impediment.
A Bush will stay the course, even if he or she is off it. Bush’s are not as shrubs; they do not grow, though their dollars do. Bush’s need fertilizer; they have tilled the old soil for too long. Thus, I am providing nourishment to the ground on which they lie.
“Power and violence are opposites; where the one rules absolutely, the other is absent.
Violence appears where power is in jeopardy,
but left to its own course it ends in power’s disappearance.”
Hannah Arendt, Political Theorist [1906-1975]
“Violence cannot build a better society. Disruption and disorder nourish repression, not justice.
They strike at the freedom of every citizen.
The community cannot, it will not,
tolerate coercion and mob rule.”
Commission on Civil Disorder, 1968
“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
Isaac Asimov, Science-Fiction Author [1920-1992]
“Violence does even justice unjustly.”
Thomas Carlyle, English author [1795?”1881]
“Nothing good ever comes of violence.”
Martin Luther, German leader of the Protestant Reformation [1483-1546]
