If God wills that the scourge of war continue until all the wealth piled by the bondman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil
shall be sunk,
and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash
shall be paid by another drawn by the sword,
as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said,
"The judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

Between 1914 and 1918, the United States intervened in Haiti, in Cuba, in Panama and particularly often in Mexico. The U.S. kept troops in Nicaragua throughout Wilson's administration and forced Nicaragua to pass the Bryan-Chamorro Treaty.[Wiki]
In Cuba, in the Dominican Republic, in Haiti and in Nicaragua, Wilson set the stage for Batista, Trujillo, Duvalier, and Somoza.
In addition to being a colonial imperialist, Wilson was also a white supremicist, reviving interest in the Ku Klux Klan which US Grant had worked so hard against.
Helen Keller, the flaming socialist, called Wilson "the greatest individual disappointment the world has ever known."

It was consequently necessary to name some other period for the commencement of actual felicity - to have some other point on which her wishes and hopes might be fixed, and by again enjoying the pleasure of anticipation, console herself for the present, and prepare for another disappointment.

Bush advocates adding alcohol to gasoline. And presumably by letting most cars take CAFE credit for running on 15% blends (E85), since many can run on that, even though E85 is not available.
The typical alcohol blend is 7% alchohol not 15%.
