The Lyrics

Bush, huh yeah
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing.
Bush huh yeah
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing.
Say it again y'all
Bush, oh my God
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. Listen to me

Bush - I despise
cause he means destruction
Of American lives
Bush means hell to thousands of soldiers' wives
Whey they are sent to Iraq
And lose their lives

Bush, huh good god y'all
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. say it again
Bush whoa lord
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. listen to me
He is no good to our nation
Friend only to the corporation

Oh Bush, is an enemy to the middle class
And the man is a pompous ass
Bush has caused unrest in the younger generation
deployment, unemployment they want to die

Bush, huh good god y'all
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. say it again
Bush whoa lord
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. listen to me
He is no good to our nation
Friend only to the corporation

oh Bush has shattered many young mans dreams
made them unemployed bitter and mean
life is much too short and precious to be out of work these days
Bush can't give jobs 'cause he sends them overseas oooooh

Bush, huh good god y'all
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. say it again
Bush whoa lord
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. listen to me
He is no good to our nation
Friend only to the corporation

Jobs cash opportunity tell me
is there no place for them today
they say we must fight for Iraqi freedom
but lord knows there's got to be a better way

Bush, huh good god y'all
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. say it again
Bush whoa lord
What is he good for?
Absolutely nothing. listen to me
He is no good to our nation
Friend only to the corporation

Here's two round-trip tickets to Montreal. You're gonna need them to stay a step ahead of John Ashcroft and his boys. Use one ticket to return on November 2, so you can vote, and the other to come back on January 20. You could, of course, exchange them for tickets to Toronto, but who wants to live in Toronto?

But hey, Tim...PLENTY of high-paying jobs...just sign-up for a little "overseas civilian" duty with Halliburton in good 'ole Iraq and make maybe six figures...or end up with your head in a basket. I understand a lot of small town police and fire workers are going over there because they really can't make ends meet on what they earn over here. That's a pretty sad choice for brave and dedicated people to be making in an economy that should be able to provide them with a decent standard of living for serving the public and possibly laying their lives on the line for us here. 5's

More than $190 billion spent on both wars - who elected this moron? Oh, I forgot, less than half of those who voted actually voted for the dunce. Speaking of flip-flopping, what's the latest reason why we invaded Iraq? Oh, nice job here.

All of you listen: Bush is our president Aschroft won't vome after any of you since you are well within you 1st adement rights, but since you don't like the way we run things here in the good ole US of A GET OUT. go and be with your friend Saddam... Oh wait we capurted him and he's got a date with the noose. Oh well maybe you could hang with your other buddy Osama, wait... he's running with his beard between his legs if he's even alive. Well maybe when the War crime commiting (he confessed to it) Private jet owning, SUV owning (Agian he said it while in Detriot) John Kerry loses the election by all 50 states then you can hang out with him. I tell you now I was young when Mr. "I did not have..." was in the White House but I supported him (oh and he attacked Iraq too) you need to support the office at least, have some respect. And look at the facts, Unemployment is dropping and the soliders want to finish thier missons, thier families want them to finish thier missions, only YOU YOU left wingers want them to abort (hey hey I made a pun) their misson. Get used to the way things are because Bush is comming back for four more years in the imortal words of the great Ric Fliar WOOOOOOOOOOO

Big G - Don't confuse discontent with the moron in charge here with an affiliation or affection or anything of the sort with murderous tyrants and manipulative fools somewhere else. If you had any background in logic (which it appears you do not) you would be able to figure that out on your own, but since you can't the least I can do is help you connect the dots correctly. Hey, and you know what, as big a jerk as you are for suggesting that people who don't agree with your simple-minded, simplistic point of view go live somewhere else, as far as I am concerned you are still welcome in this country. Just please stay as far away from me with those ignorant opinions as you possibly can, OK? Thanks.

If anyone remembers the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, there were protesters chanting "The Whole World's Watching" while the cops were busting heads. At the Republican National Convention in New York, I am calling on protestors to chant "THE WHOLE WORLD'S LAUGHING."

Big G - as Mr. Kerry so eloquently put it in his acceptance speech - ". . . we have an important message for those who question the patriotism of Americans who offer a better direction for our country. Before wrapping themselves in the flag and shutting their eyes and ears to the truth, they should remember what America is really all about. . . We are here to affirm that when Americans stand up and speak their minds and say America can do better, that is not a challenge to patriotism; it is the heart and soul of patriotism." So you see, Big G, exercising our First Amendment rights (by speaking out against the moron who is president) is the essence of being an American - we couldn't do this in Iraq. However, your move to stifle free speech would have been exactly what Saddam ordered; perhaps it is you who should look for a country that suppresses speech. And, I don't have to support the office if the office is wrong - getting Bin Laden was what this selected president should have been concentrating on; he's failed to do that in nearly three years of trying. You may be right though, Bush stole it the first time and he could possibly steal it again. But when John Kerry wins, even your opinions will be welcome in this country Big G - afterall, the democrats are the inclusive party. Tim, I'm with ya, but unfortunately, we have to protest from New Jersey - I believe the Bill of Rights (except for the 2nd Amendment) have been suspended under the Patriot Act(s).,

Am I the only one who has noticed that the people who keep saying that John Kerry committed war crimes are the same people who seem to think the treatment of the Abu Garib prisoners was justified?

I applogize for my comments on getting out of our country, but I don't applogize for my defense of Bush. There is little to no hypocrasy on the right, and little on the left for that matter either, both sides are pretty constant in their words. Unlike John "I voted for the 8 billon before I voted against it" Kerry. Oh and I think that the Abu Whachimacallit was dumb in multiple areas. 1. It harmed our realtionship with the Iraq's and other Arabs and gave the propoganda machines in Iraq ammo to use aganist us. 2. The girl who is being courtmasheled is pretty qucik to betray her comander and cheif by (falsely more than likely) of having a role in this atocity. But I do think that we need to put this in perscpective these guys think chopping off an inoccent mans head (another reason this scandal was bad) is equal to putting someones underware on his head, it's not, we are punishing those responisble so lets all just put a lid on Abu Whatever. John Kerry DID COMMIT WAR CRIMES He confessed if you guys don't belive it then you are blindly following him and thats not good, I wish that Zell Miller would run for pres becasue he would do a better job than Bush, but I support him (I can't vote yet). Oh and you guys made a good point you can't have free speech under Hussien so therefore the war was justified it was just like Nazi war crimes. Oh and even bigger g why must you resort to personal attacks, please lets keep it on the issues not my lack of grammar skills. RJP I want an example of right hypocisy, give me one, example and I'll respond. Bush didn't steal the election what the liberal media (CNN NBC ABC CBS) didn't tell you was that he won the state fair and square.)

Big G, just some brief comments on your remark here. It's pointless to try and compare cruel, arbitrary, and inhuman Summary Executions committed by thoroughly indoctrinated Terrorists with how a supposedly "civilized" nation treats the citizens of an occupied nation that they have invaded, for whatever reason. Even if the invasion was justifiable beyond any question whatsoever. I mean, what is your point? That because irrational murderers have no respect for human life and lack fundamental human decency that it is OK for members of our Armed forces military to mistreat and humiliate Iraqi citizens either on a whim or to try and somehow coerce their cooperation? Honestly, Iím at a loss to understand what you are trying to say. I really donít want to pick on you, but youíre not making much sense.

Bush-bash after Bush-bash on this site, and this is just another of the venom against an elected official. Clinton didn't have it this bad, and he was impeached for his wrongdoings. Time after time, these accusations against Bush have been disproven. Yet some insist on "if we can't win by reason, go for volume". This election has been nasty since the Primaries, when a Kerry was selected because he showed he hated Bush more than the other contenders. Instead of the issues being discussed, why are those on the far left trying to appeal to base emotions? This is one of the best sites out here, but after today I'm not returning. The sheer hatred on this site is offensive to me.

Big G, certainly you are entitled and encouraged to voice your opinion; so don't apologize for defending the moron. But the hypocrisy on the right is staggering. You asked for one example and, while I could give you many, I'll give you one: Bush, Cheney, the right-wing and the right-wing bias in the media criticizing John Kerry's military service to this country. Both Bush and Cheney are draft dodgers, face it. Yet, the right-winger's labled Mr. Clinton a draft dodger during his campaigns, saying that someone like this was unfit to be commander in chief. I call that hypocrisy.
Big G - August 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Georege W Bush Served in the National Gaurd. That is not draft dodging draft dodging is going to England to avoid the draft. There is no conservitive Bias in the media and you are ignorant if you deny it. Fox news is fair and balanced, it just seems to be slanted to the right becuase CNN ABC CBS etc etc etc are tilted to the left. I need an example of the critisim of Kerry's service. Bush's service has also been criticizied without any foundation. The Swift Boat Veterans like it or not are witnesses, credible witnesses, to Kerry's behavior. Now he earned his medals, and he gave or threw some of his medals or ribbons away. (It's not an issue what he did with his medals to be honest). To PR our abuse triggared the executions and I think this abuse was wrong. But again it needs to be put in perscpetive. I have no idea what was is like I am only 17 but I can only imagine being surounded by death may cause you to make some questionable decisons. That doesn't excuse it though and those responsible will be punished. If you ask a WWII POW about hsi treatment it may just make what we did seem like pampering. I don't have the right to post what I've been told on the internet but ask a POW if you can find one what a Jappensse prison camp was like. It's simple war has NO RULES war is horrible, it is despicable, but it is nessacary because there are those who want war and blood and death no matter what. The Geneva convention is well intentioned but I think that it is not worth much. Only the US UK and a few other countries obey it. Iraqi violated it they led us into ambush by faking surender.(give it to the guys that was a brillant miltary move). My point is everyone in war breaks the rules. I personaly think that CBS should have gone to Bush before breaking the story since I think the story hurt our cause in Iraq worse but , because action needed to be taken I guess they felt that was the only way they could get it to happen. DR if you ever come back you've earned my respect, I agree with you, but I am not able to aviod conflict and I must stay and fight.

Big G: You certainly have a way with words. Please don't re-interpret mine. I did NOT say that the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners in Abu Garib triggered those beheadings. I have no way to know that one way or the other. I believe the murderer's made mention of it as part of their twisted rationale for killing innocent people that they had kidnapped and taken hostage. My best guess , and it is speculation, as to the reason for the beheadings is that it was done to intimidate and strike fear into ordinary, non-military people around the world, with specific emphasis on those working for the Coalition in Iraq. Unfortunately, soldiers dying is something we are all conditioned to respond to as "sad, but a part of war", but when a "Joe Ordinary" gets his head cut off we all think about that, and for a lot more than just a moment, too. So they got our attention. And it stinks. I hope that clarifies my thinking about this for you. OH...The Geneva Convention - I believe your assertion that very few countries actually follow it is incorrect. When you are stating things based on your OPINION that you cannot prove you really should qualify ("I believe" or "I don't believe" would do). Now, the reason to follow the Geneva Convention, beyond basic moral imperatives, is so that when OUR soldiers are taken prisoner we can reasonably expect that they will be treated humanely. This has not always been the case, but it is more likely to be the case when we abide by these rules. That's another real basic logic construction that you ought to think through.

Domov is being foolish. If this site had been constructed during the Clinton Administration, there certainly would have been as many songs making fun of Clinton as there are of The W now. The difference being, of course, is that the only bad things Clinton did while in office were:as 1)got an illicit blowjob from a woman other than his wife and 2)lied to America about it. I need not bother listing all the crappy things The W has done for our country...just read, listen or watch the latest headlines.
Big G - August 15, 2004 - Report this comment
If I'm not mistaken I think the beheaders said that the murder was reatallatory. I think that the beheading was underreported. The reason it was worse than a soldiers death is because )1 he was a civillian. and 2 He was killed savegly. Most of the liberal media did not report it or if they did only put on as a foot note if you will, (I may be mistaken). They did however put our country's mistakes up pretty darn quickly. (Election year politics) Oh and Agrimorme I was too young to be poltical (some would say I'm still to young) when the Clinton scandal came about, but I get the feeling that there is a large liberal group posting on this site, so it would be reasonable to assume he wasn't ridiculed. And Clinton ordered bombings in his administration too, Yugoslovia (although that was a NATO thing) and Iraq, he bombed Iraq for WMDS.
