Back when I was a kid, Blogs were called 'imaginary friends' and were only slightly more pathetic.

More Scary than A Radioactive Super Halloween

I'm a little late to the game here, as this article came out last week, but Ron Susskind's article in the New York Times, click here, is the single most frightening thing I've read in a long, long time. The article, entitled 'Without a Doubt' details president Bush's belief that he is chosen by God to run the world, and that reason and intellectualism mean nothing because Jesus Christ himself tells him what to do.

Those of us who take the time to think things through and live hedonistic 'secular' lives even have a name in this twisted little theocracy we live under. We are living in the 'reality-based community'. In the following quote, one of Bush's aides talks about the death of analysis, plans to lock up the scientists, hang Gallileo, bring back the Inquisition etc.;

"The aide said that guys like me were ''in what we call the reality-based community,'' which he defined as people who ''believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.'' I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ''That's not the way the world really works anymore,'' he continued. ''We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.''

That's one of the PRESIDENT'S AIDES. David Koresh himself wouldn't have believed in anything this nutty. If we continue down this path, the rest of the world will see us as nothing more than Rajneeshies, blindly following our cult leader and buying him Rolls-Royces. With one slight difference, I dont' believe the Baghwan ever had his finger on the button.

Save us Jeebus!!!
