I Think it's Time The Whole Thing Went Away


A Word on Masonic Suicides:


“To Our Brave, Wonderful and Worshipful Master, Who Chose Death Rather Than Dishonour His Friends and Workmates.”











President Not-George H. W. Bush :
Shut The Door.
I promised the American People I'd do something about the drug problem.

National Security Advisor Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane : 
You are.
You support the Colombians' efforts against the cartels...

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
And accomplish nothing. 
Do these drug dealers think we're powerless?
That they can keep doing this kind of thing, and there's no response ever?

National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane : 
Are you suggesting a Course of Action, sir?


President Not-George H. W. Bush :
The Course of Action I'd Suggest is
Course of Action I can't suggest.

National Security Advisor Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane : 
I'm... not sure where that leaves us.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
These drug cartels represent a 
Clear and Present Danger to The National Security of The United States.

National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane :
The situation in East Timor seems to have stabilised during the day.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
Good.
Is that it?






National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane :
Except for The Other Thing.
We've accomplished a lot.
We're seeing results.
Drug shipments are down.
Price on the street is rising.
The perception is the administration is doing something right.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
What's the bad news?



National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane :
I'm worried about the car bomb coming so soon after Jacobs's assassination.
Just the kind of thing reporters live for.
They'd love to make a connection.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
And you think they will?



National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane :
I think it's time the whole thing went away.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
If that's what you think.

National Security Advisor 
Not- Lt. Col, (USMC) Robert Carl “Bud” McFarlane :
I think so.

President Not-George H. W. Bush :
Then, It Should Go Away.
It Never Happened.
