For Whom the Bell Tolls

How it looks from here

It appears that seventy five percent of the people who voted for Bush still believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that a connection existed between Saddam and Osama Ben Laden and 9/11.

That certainly reinforces the old Big Lie theory. It would also seem to indicate that much of America simply isn't paying attention to what is going on.

I suppose when you get your view of the world from FOX news and televangelists, you aren't bothered by facts. You just know what's right. Truth is a matter of who you choose to believe. Simple, eh?

Objective facts merely confuse us. Sure Bush is a compulsive liar. So what? Bush lies for God and Bush ain't no egghead. He's as dumb as a duck and we're proud of him. He's one of us.

I want you people who voted Republican to remember that, when they take your kids to fight for Cheneys' millions. When beauty comes home in a body bag, when athlete of the year comes back permanently mangled, when your once cheerful lad returns changed and estranged from you in ways you could not have imagined, remember, YOU asked for it. You made it all possible.

Ask not for whom the bell tolls, for in fact, it tolls for you.

Your right. They deserve what they voted for. Unimanagable, reminds me of the Roman mob that ancient Rome once appealed to. Caesar would provide the mob with free bread, festivals and the games to keep them in line. Nothing has really changed during the past 2000 years.

Saddly, the rest of America does not deserve what come next.
