But there’s another way to look at this. And we might as well as be creative while we’re at it.
Consider how the collapse of the dollar is part of larger problems that have emerged under George Bush’s watch. For our evangelical friends out there – who look forward to the Apocalypse – we may be witnessing the emergence the last of President Bush’s Four Horseman of Ineptitude. Specifically, we have seen:
(1) Bush's stubborn WHITE HORSE OF CONQUEST, which abuses power, blindly persecutes, and disrespects the rule of law at home & abroad.All that’s left is for the PALE HORSE OF DEATH to emerge. But wait … If Bush’s empty-headed comments on WWIII are paired with his saber rattling with Iran we won’t have long to wait. Bush’s Debacalypse will come full circle.
(2) Bush's impotent RED HORSE OF WAR, riding wild in Iraq and Iran.
(3) Bush's ideological BLACK HORSE OF PESTILENCE, which is represented by economic breakdown and corruption (war profiteering, the subprime mess, record debt, the dollar’s collapse, etc.).
Is it November yet?
