What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love And Understanding?

Bush to Truth and English Language, "FUCK YOU." In Michigan yesterday Bush told supporters that Iraq is better off now without Saddam Hussein saying, ''because we acted, torture rooms are closed, rape rooms no longer exist," despite the well-publicized photographic evidence that we have been torturing Iraqi prisoners and holding disposable cameras while contractors rape underage boys. Only hours before his comments were made, Bush was discussing the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by US troops with Donald Rumsfeld. I want to punch my monitor.

Stepping Into The Way, Way Back Machine An article taken from the UK's Sun about photographs of British troops torturing Iraqi prisoners, published last May.

The Liberal Media At It Again
CBS waitied to report its story about abuse in Iraqi prisons for two weeks at the request of the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and was spurred to air the sotry when it learned the New Yorker was going to publish a huge article on the abuse. And shocking nobody, Destro himself has come out to declare himself a superfan of Fox News. Later a woman asked him to "clarify some of the things that are happening in Iraq that really are good but just never get through the media." Yet again, I want to punch my monitor.

Is The Devil Usin' Book-learnin' Against Our Kids?
A resolution being considered for next month's Southern Baptist Convention would call on all Baptists to remove their children from public shcools and either enter them into Christian schools or homeschool them. The measure states, "Government schools are by their own confession humanistic and secular in their instruction, [and] the education offered by the government schools is officially Godless." A co-sponsor of the measure compared public schooling to adultery and drug abuse, and both sponsors of the measure are involved in a get-out-of-public-education ministry entitled the Exodus Mandate, because sending your child to public school for a free education is like being held in chains by the Pharoah.

Ronald Reagan Sainthood and Spoof Decks of Cards
Two horrible annoying phenomenons that are even more annoying when combined. Well, at least it isn't a "low-carb Ronnie deck of Freedom cards"...
