My favorite Bush quote, "I know how hard it is to put food on your families", has been eclipsed.

In an interview with something called Bild (help me out here Again) Bush had this to say:

I’ve come to realize that the nature of the German people are such that war is very abhorrent, that Germany is a country now that is -- no matter where they sit on the political spectrum, Germans are -- just don’t like war. And I can understand that. There’s a generation of people who had their lives torn about because of a terrible war.

Well, hoooly shit! Them Germans just don't like war! Bunch of pansies! Don't they know it makes the grass grow? They've sure come along way from the days when they bombed Pearl Harbor!

Fucking Germans.

    Well you know, Robert : Bush and his Fascist cronies just LOVE war -- as long as they don't have to participate personally or contribute anything other than faux "patriotic" lip service to the struggle. (Come to think of it, that seemingly applies to most "hard-core" Righties od recebt vintage -- all bluster, no sacrifice.) Besides, we all know what particular orifice Bush consistently talks out of. Frankly, I'm surprised he doesn't feel the need to wipe after every burst of verbal flatulence.

    "of recent vintage", that is. (Sigh.)

    In an interview with something called Bild (help me out here Again) Bush had this to say

    "Bild" is ok - the name, not what those media-whores write. "Bild" is the german Faux, well-known, really well-known for openly and overtly lying if it sells - and they do everything to support the right wings and the believers of the free market

    the only advantage i can see in such a propaganda-machinery of the "Force can have a strong influence on a weak mind" (Obi Wan) is, that it protects us from Robert Murduch and that's only because i guess it is better to be lied to by a neighbor than by a stranger

    may sound cynically (is it, i guess), but the advantage is simply, that you know your neighbor better, so that you are better able to analyze the lies and understand their intentions - and that simply means, that you better can defend yourself

    "Maybe i can find the truth by comparing the lies" - Leo Trotzki

    many, many, many thanks for the quote, Robert, because as you may deduce from by words - i only read Bild when i'm forced to, waiting in some service stations ("Bild" is everywhere, you can't escape)

    and i am SOOOOO pleased, SOOOOO flattered and cajoled by that wonderful, wonderful compliment of the American president - HE MUST KNOW, he is the most pampered killing-by-joystick-lust driven person i ever heard of, he must know who feels like himself (you know, birds of a feather)

    and this adept of blind violence tells me, that my nation doesn't belong to him...

    you saved my day, Robert...

    but, alas, i am who i am - i can't stop thinking - and i thought, how great it is to be openly absolved from the warmongering of the Nazis, which suddenly reminds me of the fact, that Germany is elected to the New Human Rights Council (with the most votes, i've heard)...

    i thought, that this only could happen by "changing of the guards" - now the black suited Germans killing and torturing people may no longer be the perfect symbol of evil, but only by the price of new black suited squadrons, more dangerous and more violent than any other before...

    why can't we just learn from history?

    What happened was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to be governed by surprise, to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believe that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. . . To live in the process is absolutely not to notice it -- please try to believe me -- unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us ever had occasion to develop.

    Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted.' . . . Believe me this is true. Each act, each occasion is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join you in resisting somehow. . . Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. . . You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.

    Thanks for letting us know about Bild, Again.

    German Fox News? Brrrrr

    If there is any nation that should recognize and hate propaganda.....

    If there is any nation that should recognize and hate propaganda.....

    yes, one should think...

    the problem with the Germans is - they are not worse, but also not better than others, simple humans (and to be honest: especially not more intelligent than others) - too eager to forget, too eager to play the game of the three apes: don't see, don't hear, don't speak

    look at the Italians! They were #2 in Nazism with Mussolini - and Berlusconi now proves, that they are hurrying back. Did you watch that tragedy? That "democratic politician" Berlusconi The Great Pretender changed the law for his own sake - on and on -, used massive propaganda (through his own tv-companies - btw: perfectly proving the "free market" because they are without any competition in Italy) and never "wanted to accept" that the Italian people elected AGAINST him - that's an understanding of "democracy" which he must have inherited from Caesar

    or look at Israel - having suffered pure discrimination, they now try to avoid it by pure discrimination...

    what a perfect "logic" - beat evil by evil, beat Satan with Beelzebub

    works so "fine" as history proves...

    mls quote is so true - so much about your "obsession", Robert

    because this obsession about being fooled - to constantly try to avoid to be lied to, to be manipulated - is the ONLY thing, which allows "To live in the process" and despite of this, "to notice it" - the politics of the small steps works so well, that only constant readyness to defend your freedom of mind can protect you from being fooled

    "Why don't the slaves rebel or at least try to escape back to their home...? There seems to be no evolutionary advantage in remaining in passive slavery promoting the fortunes of the slave-makers. The opportunities to run off and rebel are never taken." Why are there no slave ... rebellions?

    isn't that a really true quote, either?

    so please follow the link - and you'll see why i call your "obsession" nothing else than "humanity"...

    slavery isn't human - freedom is

  • At 8:26 AM, Blogger Robert said…

    I followed the link, thank you.

    It is the passivity(is that a word?) of presumed safety. Just as we humans will allow all sorts of injustice and economic slavery if we are allowed a few scraps of freedom, a small taste of the scraps of wealth that a few enjoy.

    And I'm not just ranting about "them" being cowards of convenience. I am as guilty as anyone. I like my comforts as well.

    But I'm working on simplifying.

    Needing less.

    I believe that may be the key to the future.

    I am as guilty as anyone. I like my comforts as well.

    i guess i have to defend you, again..

    because it's a narrow path between self-criticism and self-damnation. To fail doesn't mean to lose "value" - mistakes are the reason why we learn, mistakes are (usually) a really good thing - as long as they are not "irreversible failures" like killing or maiming others, destruction beyond repair

    you are neither obsessed nor ranting - you are just open-eyed and therefore more honest. Do you remember, why they call the Germans "rude"? Because the Germans are thought to be more honestly speaking than others and honesty and politeness often don't go together

    I believe that may be the key to the future.

    yes, no more distraction, no more wrong priorities

    And I thought it was the grumpy-face.

    As those who possess a brain know, the Germans did not bomb Pearl Harbor. The Japanese did. You're an idiot.

  • At 5:28 PM, Blogger Robert said…

    And you've never seen "Animal House" have you?


  • At 5:40 PM, Blogger Robert said…

    I don't think even that will explain it to "anonymous" who probably thinks Roe vs. Wade was something Washington had decide to before crossing the Delaware.

    See "anonymous", in the motion picture (you've seen motion picture, right?) "Animal House" John Belushi portrayed a drunken frat boy (that' a male member of a college fraternity) who gives a speech to inspire his fellow Deltas (the name of a college fraternity, see above) to fight back aginst... Look I don't want to get too complicated because it's getting late and no doubt past your bedtime. Suffice it to say one of the line s in his speech is "was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" showing just hoew clueless (no doubt you're familiar with the type) he really is.

    See, that's why it's funny.

    Robert [following your lead from the more recent post]: Oh, I *see*! 8^O ==== No doubt our nameless "detractor" merely aspires to the mental stature of "the future Senator Blutarski", since he's irrevocably proven the old maxim that "A wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse." ;-) ==== Congratulations, "A"! You've earned Highest Honors for Grand Sophomorism with THAT astoundingly doltish "correction". (DUH!)
