Dressing for Murderous Success

Here's another abandoned topic I spoke about last week:


Opinions become justified depending on the spin that gets put on actual events. Take for example three people known for being merchants of death, Adolph Hitler, Charles Manson and George W. Bush. None of the three mentioned ever actually killed anyone by their own hand, except Hitler did kill himself and his dog.

Manson’s influence caused the Helter Skelter murders, and recent findings are showing that previous murders may be attributed to him as well. Hitler’s influence caused the extermination of 8 million Jews. George Bush over-saw 155 executions in Texas while he was Governor. The term is Texecuted. Add to that the tens of thousands of civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan. The number of American soldiers that have died in these two theaters is about the same number as the entire population of Warrenton.

Maybe it’s how you dress that makes the difference. If you wear jeans, you go to prison. If you wear a uniform you can be exiled or you may end your own life, but if you wear a suit you get to live in a palace and retire with a Secret Service protection.

Each of these three men totally justify (in their own heads)what they have done. The lives of others mean nothing to them. It would have been far easier if each left well enough alone. History may never be kind to any of them, but it obviously helps your image when you wear a suit.

Guy, you really shouldn't use a picture of military graves on your blog - you know they are dead, right? In a war. Violently. You need to make it a picture of Hitler or Bush or Manson. Otherwise, people might not be able to tie the words and the picture together.

Boy, did I wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

Heh.

The well lubricated machinery of big oil at your back makes the well tailored suit all the more impervious.

Lori, *Wink*

Anon, can you imagine what could be done if the suit power actually worked for good like Homeland Manufacturing?

You actually think that Dumbya is capable of forming complete ideas on his own!! Without Daddy's money combined with Rove, Cheney, Laura, and others telling him what to do & say, he'd be just your everyday homeless guy living under the overpass drinking wine from a bottle in a paper bag. Not that there's anything wrong with those homeless guys. Damn, hope I didn't hurt their feelings. Certainly don't need to be the target of protests by yet another downtrodden minority group. hehehe

This is precisely why I avoid wearing shoes that can be tied and condemn those who kill their dog.

Beth, it's best to divorce a suit or donate it to Goodwill.

Mike I think he has formed a few thoughts and is too ridged to consider reality.

G, you're a suit?
