Brody's Scribbles... The Cowboy In The Black Hat Is Dead. Evil Is Now Finished. It's Official!

By Tim Trent (Dartmouth, England) MAY 3 | Yes, they killed Obama, no Osama, bin Laden. We can rejoice. Vengeance is sweet. Evil is dead. Let us all rejoice and watch our transatlantic friends rejoice and 'Be Proud To Be American'.
News broadcasts announced different things:
Yes, Fox News announced that President Obama announced his own death. Wishful thinking, or immediate Easter-like resurrection? And it even outdid itself with this caption:
Yes, Obama Bin Laden is Dead
Then we get the real announcement from Barry. To be fair, he did accomplish what Shrub failed to do:

I'd hate that to have been Bimbette Palin or the aged McCain saying any of that. I couldn't watch to the end, though. So yes, they shot the cowboy in the black hat. Good has triumphed over evil. No more nasty people will go and bomb others. The world is saved. God Bless America.
Or not.
How personality centric can one get? First the USA imbues this person with all the world's evil, then it kills him, maybe. He's just a nasty guy with a beard. There are loads of those. And there are loads of nice guys with beards, too. But the USA created this monster. Unfortunately it failed to understand that it created a class of monsters when it effectively deified this one. The whole thing was Bush and Blair playing Christians vs Muslims.
Now how about we make the world a safer place peacefully? How about some basic human rights?
How about the USA now looks inside itself:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
I call upon them to make those self evident truths their absolute goal. And I call upon them to honour the inscription on The Statue of Liberty:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch. Whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome: Her wild eyes command
The air bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
So, USA, now you've killed the cowboy with the black hat and made the world safer, and are all proud to be American, how about attending to basic human rights for those people you allege that you welcome?
How about you finish implementing the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell? How about you repeal the Defense of Marriage Act? How about you stop oppressing LGBT people? How about you start to set an example?
How about doing something about the crusading christianist evil inside your once great nation and becoming really proud to be American?
