Billy Roy came into the Cafe this week with his "Dick Cheney Rules" tee shirt and a huge smile. He pulled the Waco Tribune out of his pocket and flipped to a middle page of the front section to read a tiny article including the following: "They asked us not to announce our findings publicly, and we agreed, giving them the benefit of our work and the benefit of the doubt," Cheney said.
Cheney's comments countered a recent claim by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel that the Obama administration had to form an Afghan war strategy from scratch because the Bush administration hadn't asked any key questions about the war and left it "adrift."
Billy Roy says "no one kicks b-- nor takes names like Dick."
Meanwhile, the long awaited second coming of Gov. Richard B. Hubbard, a.k.a. DB, has happened. Butch Jackson, local philosopher and sole supporter of Kinky Friedman for President in 1987 (which wasn't even an election year), was whiter than a central Texas cloud in July when he reported to the folks at the Cafe this week. It appears Butch isn't completely comfortable talking to ghosts quite yet.
It seems that the Governor actually was able to shake Butch awake with some heavy duty door slamming (not an easy task) on Tuesday night. The exchange went something like this:
Butch: "Whoa, D.B. easy on the door, is that you?"
D.B.: "The one and only. How's my Hubbard City doing?"?
Butch: "Well, your forecast of the future in 2011 really scared the folks (see 10/17/2009 blog), but there are those who think I made it all up. Course with the Hubbard Jags at 1-4, people are so irritable they are really critical of big thinkers like myself."
D.B.: "They will come around once the season's over. Let's get to work. Let me tell you how this impending government takeover of the U.S. all got started. Back in the late 1800s a guy named Karl Marx came up with this political scheme (by the way all politics are about Power and Control) to get the masses of people to revolt by focusing on Economic issues. That would be the 'spreading the wealth around/redistribution of wealth' to the masses. This movement was followed in later years by people like Lenin, Engels, Stalin, Mao, Castro, and Chavez. Most of these guys became fascists and slaughtered more people in the name of helping the masses than any other movements in history. Are you with me?"
Butch: "Nothing new here, D.B. So far I could write the book."
D.B. "It's coming. In the 1920's these Socialists formed the Institute of Social Research, later known as the Frankfurt School, which moved to Europe during the war, and then came back to Columbia University (where your current President went to school during his drug period). The Frankfurt group felt the socialist movement must be worldwide including wealthy nations like the U.S. The U.S. people resisted because they were 'blinded' by their economic success, so the Socialists launched a Cultural movement to complement the Economic movement. Butch, Butch, wake up, damn it."
Butch: "Sorry D.B., it won't happen again, but I had a hard day making protest signs that said 'Obama: The Buck Starts Here'."
D.B: "I like it. O.K., the Cultural Movement was based on identifying or creating so called 'minority groups' and basically making them victims of the Old Dead White Christian Men (ODWCM) that we talked about last time --men like Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Reagan, Churchill, etc."
Butch: "And who are these victim groups?"
D.B.: "Come on, Butch, think. We can start with Racial Groups like Blacks (and now Hispanics) and then once we include feminists, homosexuals, labor unions, illegal drug users, abortionists, students, trial lawyers, atheists, etc. we have a pretty good voting constituency. All out for personal gain and blaming the ODWCMs for their plights. So basically the socialists combined economic and cultural forces under the slogan of Social Justice. This is what your Scott Riddle would call an 'idiot pitch'."
Butch: "Where does Obama come in?"
D.B.: "I am running out of my allotted 30 minutes so I will leave you with a couple of recent news articles to make my point on how the current regime are getting people to sign on to the stealth socialist movement by buying votes using Cultural Issues. We will talk about Obama when I come back. Meanwhile hang in there. I'll be back!"
