How Many Robots Does It Take to Screw in a Light Bulb? (2003)
As many as George W. Bush says it takes?
Why aren't you laughing?
What are you?
There's no joke here.
Just a string of facts.
Unless Congress or the courts curb our War President.
He can and will do whatever he wants.
And he'll openly and proudly say he has the power.
Unless he's lying.
Which he does often.
Although he expects us to believe him.
That he won't spy on the wrong people.
Or incarcerate the innocent.
And expects us to give him and his goon squad of nicknames the benefit of the doubt.
People so skilled at PR they openly argue for torture and admit starting gulags.
Gulags. Yes. Let's call them what they are.
Even though the president threatened a first veto to keep the torturers torturing.
And has opened an investigation.
Not to find who leaked the identity of a CIA agent for political payback.
But to ferret out the whistleblower on the President's openly admitted domestic spying.
Which must not stop because doing so will hurt the war on "terror."
Which is a tactic and not an enemy or a country.
So it can never be completely stopped.
So the war will never end.
And neither will the surveillance.
And the lying.
And the (freshly minted) culture of corruption.
Unless our elected officials step up.
This president who believes he is a king.
Because if no one steps up.
The answer to the question:
"How many robots does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Who wants to know?
We know who wants to know.
We've been watching you.
We can make you disappear.
And this is the punch line:
It's none of your fucking business.
