Memorial Day Weekend Celebration Challenge

There is a bit of a heated debate going on over at the Bring It On location that involves some commentators disagreeing as to how to honor and celebrate the Memorial Day Holiday on Monday. Certainly, using little green men to make political statements is one way.

I am suggesting that we rearrange the deck chairs on the sinking republican ship called America to shift the debate toward focusing on what might be an appropriate way to celebrate the holiday. Certainly, as president of the United States, W shares more of the burden of the responsibility for generating more dead GIs to include in our memories. Shouldn't he be doing something different from the rest of us this weekend? So, let's call this:

Windspike's Memorial Day Presidential Holiday Suggestions

Grand Rapids isn't even having it's Memorial day parade this weekend! I went last year, and the turnout was depressing, considering how many magnetic yellow ribbons you see around here. It is no longer about honoring our soldiers, it's all about drinking beer and barbecuing and fighting traffic to get to your spot on the shores of the Big Lake.

I think the best way for President Bush to honor our military forces this Memorial Day would be for him to shoot himself in the head. Twice.

It would save the CIA the difficulty and expense of finding a patsy for their inevitable revenge.

He should should bite down on the business end of a loaded pistol and pull the trigger.

Apologize...for everything.

Enlist. Failing that, enlisting his daughters would suffice.

Oh, I like the enlistment one best so far...and take his twins with him.

He should turn himself in for the murders of the victims of 9/11 and all those he's killed in his blood for oil war.

The best way for Bush to honor Memorial Day would be to:

1). Stop the wars. 2) Bring all troops home 3) seize 1/3 of KBR and Haliburton's obscene profits from these wars for REAL reconstruction of the damages done to Aghanistan and Iraqi infrastructures 4). seize the another 1/3 of KBR and Haliburton's obscene profits on these wars and donate to the Iraqi and Afghanistani people as reparation to rebuild their homes and businesses 5) Take the remaining 1/3 of their profits and use it to treat our military's PTSD and other ailments and help them re-integrate into productive lives
and last but not least:
6). Turn himself and neocons in for prosecution of war crimes against humanity, making certain to include Cheney and Rummy.

Present himself alone to the biggest crowd of Iraqis to be found in Iraq, without any sort of bodyguards, with a big sign in Arabic stating, "I am the American president George W. Bush who brought all this death and destruction upon you."

Kipling wrote that The Female of the Species is More Deadly Than The Male. In his listing of various examples he mentions the "white hot wild...warring as for spouse and child".

UmmHmm. Let Bush surrender himself to the mothers, wives, sisters, female cousins and friends of the American and Iraqi supporters of every soldier and victim of this war. That would be a fitting way for him to honor Memorial Day but would be a gruesome sight to behold.
