OK folks...things are getting interesting. "Reputable"
news sources like the Boston Globe, NYTimes and AP have all printed the facts:
- Bush got into the National Guard and avoided Vietnam by jumping ahead of 500 other men on a waiting list.
wealthy friend of then-congressman George Bush Sr.
asked the Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives to get Bush Jr. into the guard despite the waiting list.
was the only guardsman (i.e. not bound for
Vietnam) in a pilot training class of 71 regular Air Force trainees, most of whom would go to Vietnam--some to
- Bush effectively went AWOL for one year during the height
of the Vietnam war, without suffering any
consequences whatsoever. He was allowed to "make up" the time his missed--and then was honorably discharged
early so that he could begin attending Harvard Business School. (Which he got into despite a C average as an undergraduate.)
Meanwhile, the cocaine story continues to develop.
First, it has come out that Bush attended notorious drug fiend Hunter S Thompson's Super Bowl party in 1974. He
must have been in an especially celebratory mood with his discharge from the Guard and acceptance into Harvard
Remember, 1974 is the year where Bush's denial of
cocaine use stops. He says he's been clean since that year but won't comment on 1974 or before. Asked about Bush's
activities at the party Thompson, who's most famous book is Fear
and Loathing in Las Vegas, said,
"I can't be expected to remember what every
drug-addled yuppie hanger-oner who wanted to get close to me during a football game twenty-five years ago digested.
There were so many dope fiends milling about, I don't remember what some Yalie named Bush, whose father was a factotum
in the Nixon Administration, was doing....I don't want to become the Deep Drug Throat....I won't do it." [New Yorker magazine, May 15 2000] Isn't that just Priceless!
So we, the electorate, are presented with a hazy
6 year period of George W Bush's life that begins with a decision to duck the overwhelming responsibilities that
all the young men of his time faced, and that ended in a drug-filled sky box with plenty of witnesses...
And by the way: Larry Flynt, who was so enraged
by the impeachment thingy that he hired ex-CIA operatives to gather dirt on the Republicans, keeps hinting that
he's got some REALLY INTERESTING PHOTOS of W...no doubt there were a few cameras at that star-studded Super Bowl
Just what the future will bring is impossible to
But one thing is for sure: GWBush.com isn't going
to sit around and wait! No, sir! We're going to bring you several POSSIBLE versions of what might have filled W's lost years. The story/ies
will unfold daily on this site, providing a window into the life--THE LIVES!--of the young and so-far mysterious
George W Bush.
Keep in mind, the National Guard is a weekend thing.
What did young Dubya do with the other 5/7ths of his time? And what was so pressing that he needed to GO AWOL for
a whole year?
Perhaps he was just trying to find himself...a walk
in the wildness? or a walk on the wild side? ...perhaps he was recruited for some top-secret mission to thwart
Vietcong infiltration of the US across Texan borders! Or maybe he was just watching the game havn' a bud. Stay
tuned and find out!
