Pooby BS: State of the Union (81* d) RE: BS: State of the Union 29 Jan 03


Put aside Dubya's solo on the war-drum for a second. Let's see: a billion to develop hydrogen-powered cars? Just what we need -- the highways clogged at rush-hour with thousands of mini-Hindenburgs. Road-rage this, mo-fo! Why not a whole lot of money for R&D on broad-based adoption of solar power? Oh, yeah, I forgot -- the oil companies can't control cheap energy from the sun.

And billions for AIDS-related meds in Africa? Okay, so any AIDS-related research is arguably a good thing, but rather than giving the 3rd world a bunch of money for medication after they've got the disease, why not try to keep 'em from getting it in the first place? Like, maybe, condoms! Oh, yeah, I forgot -- the Republicans don't believe in that.

Private-sector funding of prescription drugs for the elderly? Maybe anything is better than nothing, but gee, what a nice bit of timing. Stick it to the senior citizens just as I'm a few years away from becoming one.

Those are just a few of the pop-ups that should've been on the telly screen as Dubya was delivering his Dub-ble talk.
