The press gaggle from Aug. 06, 2001 seems to have been taken down, back a few years ago I looked to see if I could find out what Bush did the actual day he got The Memo and I found out he was out on the golf course joking with reporters about getting his tax cut through congress, we all remember how great that worked out, right?

You are missing the point.


GWB applied his MBA education & did consider the PDB in great detail and determined the best way to maximize profits was to let the attack occur


On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief” — the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading: “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.

I wish I had capture the gaggle that day when I read it knowing that he was crackin' jokes just minutes after being told about the pending attacks....I looked it up right after the memo came out I wanted to know how he spent his day, that day.

And we wonder today which party is pushing for more military money and more war ?
willard wants to spend an extra $2T on the military
Every OWSer should add up their own haliburton / raytheon / etc stocks
and do a bushian analysis - will we profit by shedding their blood ?

The King wants a bigger Army and more police the peasants want housing, doctors and food. (you know the 47% wish list)

He's a very personable guy.

buy him a beer
ask him what AWOL means
ask him about "turd blossom"
ask him why he did not find WMDs

Nah... I'd rather talk about real life - which is mostly about ranching and shooting shit, etc.

I hope the cows have given you a real good education.

[-] -2 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

Those ain't "cows" my dear, they're "cattle." The difference is that they have heavier skeletal structure, are more muscular, and are less "feminine." They were bred for dual purpose of both great strength as draft animals and for quality beef; cows are bred to provide milk.

Well, you know what they say, "if you ain't seen Texas you ain't seen shit."

Apparently you're an expert on what you can see from your front door. Nothing wrong with that really, but what in thunder do you think you're doing HERE?

[-] -1 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

Truthfully I just have too much time on my hands. I alternate between puttin' around the house and playing online, I'm basically just hanging out waiting for retirement. Social phenomena is pretty interesting to me; it's also interesting to learn that there is real substance to many of the things we intuitively gain through casual observation. And "learning" is my preferred entertainment - I follow links, read, watch videos, etc. I can't say that I am better informed; I think it's relative, and "conventional" is not my preferred lifestyle - in that sense, life is short, and nothing really matters.

Well, that was a coherent and even a somewhat interesting comment. Sorry . . . we get a lot of people here who are here just to harrass us. The response gets pretty knee-jerk after awhile.

[-] -2 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

I can be a challenge, and even a little obnoxious, but I have no personal stake in the outcome; my responses are not politically motivated.

and golf

Actually I gave up on golf, I have a nasty slice.
