The American Standard

The Resolution approved by the US Congress declaring the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks (at the beginning of the first World War) GENOCIDE, is a classic case of American Standard, or double standard.

The temerity by which these out-of-wedlock sons and daughters of Europe express their righteous indignation is appalling, even going to the extent of ignoring diplomatic calls for restraint in issuing the resolution. Not that I have any sympathy nor fondness for George "Bozo the clown" Bush and what it will do to his Middle East interests with Halliburton; but to the gall with which the representatives of the American People adorn themselves with the moral authority to make such declarations.

I wonder what they would call the napalm carpet bombing of Vietnam, routine droppings from firebirds? Or the horrendous bombing of Hiroshima and Nagazaki, scientific experiments? And what about the systematic annihilation of the various tribes of American Indians, whose lands and culture have been totally erased and obliterated? Americanization? Or perhaps they were testing the red skins if they could turn white through starvation?

There is an American brand called American Standard, its a toilet bowl. I believe this item should replace the American eagle as its symbol. With all the shit that this country has been dishing for so many decades, this is the most appropriate icon for it. Pity the poor eagle, it is made to take all the final products of a very large intestine in its head - small wonder its getting bald.

Haawwwrrk, Thhwwwpf. - ting. Shit, I almost missed the spittoon.
