"W" And The Finger




I have come to the sad realization that I have some serious issues with the leader of my country. No, not his policies, or his aw shucks demeanor and lack of intellectual curiosity. -That's well documented- But with the man on just a personal level. I have always been able to separate the President's bumbling domestic policies and his disastrous foreign policies from the man himself. But no more, they have now, in my mind, morphed together to become one. And what made me realize this fact, was a little incident that supposedly happened in my sister's hometown of Seattle.

It's like this: There is a 43 year old bus driver from Seattle, who is suing the school district to get her job back after being fired for giving "W" the finger. You heard me right; she allegedly gave the leader of the free world the finger, while he was allegedly waving at some school children in her bus. According to the Seattle Times story, the frat boy was campaigning with congressman Dave Reichert when the little incident allegedly occurred.

I can hear the frat boy now: "Dave, did you see that? I think that bus driver just gave me the bird? That little mother f*&%#r gave me her middle finger! And here I was just trying to wave to the kids!" Of course we all know what happened next. The congressman called the school superintendent-Janet Barry- who called the poor bus driver in to tell her the bad news. You're fired! According to superintendent Barry; "This was part of a pattern of behavior with this particular bus driver, not an isolated incident" Ahhh yeah sure. So what you are saying superintendent Barry, is that if this was any Joe citizen this bus driver would have been fired? "If the bus driver had made the gesture to a driver who cut her off on a local road, we would have taken the same action" Really Ms. Barry? So the fact that you and the congressman go way back to his days as King County sheriff, and he personally called to tell you what frat boy stated happened, had nothing to do with your decision huh?Mmmmm. Ms. Barry, here is something that you might want to consider in the future: Just because you are the Superintendent of a school district in a major city, please don't assume that everyone else is stupid. Because quite frankly, you are full of sh&*. And this from district spokeswoman Sara Niegowski: "The bus driver was not terminated for making an obscene gesture at the president. The bus driver was terminated for making an obscene gesture in view of the students...That's not the role modelling we need for our students: Fair enough point Sara, but can I hear from just one of the students that saw this little incident, or even their mama or daddy?



Anyway folks, so now you have the story. And here is what makes the field know that he has some issues. The bus driver's representative, Chris Dugovich, had this to say: "There is only one individual who say this and that happens to be the President of the United States".....Mmmmm good point there Chris. How come none of the kids on the bus saw this little bird being flipped? How come no one in the motorcade or in the limousine with the frat boy saw the bird being flipped? Do you think our frat boy could be lying on this poor 43 year old bus driver from the land of Starbucks Chris? Let me answer that for you Chris: Yes I do. Sad isn't it, when you believe some 43 year old school bus driver over your President. But hey, this is what it's come to with me and this man. Anyone who would lie about something as serious as an eminent threat to our country, or look at the devastation over New Orleans after Katrina and say: "Brownie you are doing a heck of a job" I dare say would lie about a school bus driver flipping him the bird.

So sorry folks, until I see or hear proof to the contrary, or until another witness comes forward; I say give the poor bus driver her job back. If only it's because we are talking about her word against the frat boys. And right about now, her word is looking allot better to me.

****Oh before I go, I hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween. But I have to tell you about some seriously spooky behavior here in the city of... ahem ahem, "brotherly love". It seems there is a practice in certain white ethnic neighborhoods to do their neighborhood trick or treating on separate nights than the rest of the population. The reason, to keep the little black kids from the black neighborhoods out. And are you ready for this? This is often organized by the various Catholic churches from the parishes in these neighborhoods. So what do the whites in these enclaves do on Halloween night? Well, they turn off their lights and don't answer the door that's what. Isn't "brotherly love" great?

I had one of my white friends complain to me today, that he had a single black mother come to his house and ask for candy for her child who she had to leave back at her house because he was sick. Of course, he says, he didn't give it to her, because he knew a hustle when he saw one.
Folks, I am not making this up. {Like a few extra pieces of candy was going to make or break her} When I asked how he felt about the church having separate days for the kids in the parish, he said he is going to join them next year, and turn his lights off and not give out treats like everyone else. "No offense field, but I get tired of the vans and buses from North and West Philly {black neighborhoods} coming with all the kids to trick or treat in our neighborhood. Don't they have candy in the black neighborhoods?" After counting to ten~~~"yes they do, but maybe they want to make an outing out of the Halloween experience" "But field....come on....we have to keep the neighborhood safe for our kids too."......

Spooky indeed!

The field is out.

*lol* For the last year or so, my family, friends, and I have been using the ole "You're Doing A Heck Of A Job, Brownie" line as an inside joke to indicate deficient policies and actions.

Is it just me, or does this whole thing reek of political cronyism?

Seriously. When was the last time you saw a public employee fired for ANYTHING in one single day? Can't happen. There should be documentation of verbal counselings, signed statements of counseling, and a written policy discussing what behaviors cannot be tolerated and how they will be addressed.

Is it just me, or has none of that been shown?

In the meantime, I'm going with the space alien theory.

Exactly NB, there is something called progressive discipline in all union contracts,that calls for certain steps to be taken before they can fire someone.

Now I might be proven wrong, because maybe this lady did give W the fingure-lord knows I wouldn't blame her if she did- But th escary thing is I believe her over him.

Field, if this working woman bus-driver gave Mr. Fascist the middle finger of social condemnation, she should get a medal, no shit.

But, as you pointed out in your post, there were no witnesses cited, no parental complaints brought forward, nothing that would lead me to believe that this actually happened anywhere except inside the mind of Psychopath In Chief. Sort of like where all Saddam's newkewler weapons of mass destruction went to after the invasion. Apparently, there's a lot of unused room in there.

I get your point, though. That after six years of fascist bullshit, immoral invasions, destruction of civil rights, unilateral abrogation of treaties, ignoring Congress (when was the last time you thought you'd disagree with THAT?), institutionalization of torture, and compulsive lying, who would think we'd believe a bus-driver over the Chickenhawk In Chief?

But then, who would have thought that Bush would create another Viet Nam when he had the chance to attend the original? Ah, never underestimate the power of a line.

Interesting post man, thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you come back often!

I am not Star Jones said...

so not surprised by the halloween story -- people love raising little bigots.

and I heard about the bus driver story. Dave Reichert started out by taking responsibility for getting the driver fired in various campaign appearances to prove his bonafides to the Bush family but now he's trying to back off of it because it proves how retaliatory these rethuglicans (love that word)
are.

The minute, we see the luminary similar to Steffi Graff or the Sofia Coppola with swinging the replica handbags by her side, we proceed attaching all great things to louis vuitton which creates we nervous as prolonged the we don’t buy louis vuitton handbags . Can we call this peculiarity alertness or the devious vigilant to bask in the limelight with the louis vuitton bags or dream?
