Description: A calendar about Bush's early years, campaign, and actions while in office, and what could happen if he gets elected again. The calendar is full of Bush's quotes, some seemingly unbelievable, similar to some of his actions. This calendar shows what Bush really thinks and believes. It's fun and scary at the same time, with a surprise ending. Excerpts follow...

The Early Bush (Before 2000): "I've never been a long term planner. I have lived my life with more of a short term focus." (and) "People that are very weird can get into sensitive positions and have tremendous impact on history."

2000: "It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it." (and) "I know I am ready for the job and, if not, that's just the way it goes."

2001: "My pro-life is I believe there's life there. It's not necessarily based on religion. I think there's a life there, therefore the notion of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." (and) Bush marks the occasion of the 28th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, by reinstating the Global Gag Rule, forcing international organizations to forego desperately needed U.S. family planning funds if they wish to use their own, private funds to counsel, refer, advocate or provide abortion services.

2002: Bush's Pre-emptive Strike Doctrine announced and underscores the US' possible use of nuclear weapons and favors taking on hostile nations before they strike us. - "We don't take a bunch of polls and focus groups to tell us what - to how to, to how to - to what we ought to do in the world."

2003: "The Iraqi regime is a threat to any American and to threats who are friends of America." (and) "History has called the United States into action, and we will not let history down." (and) "We have learned a lesson Sept. 11th, and that is, our nation is vulnerable to attack. The best way to secure America is to get the enemy before they get us, and that's what's happening in Iraq."

Gil Friedman lives, rides his bike, and swing dances in Northern California.

Review(s): "Just a note of thanks for sending the calendar. Enjoyed it very much." - Noam Chomsky
