"From 9/11 hero to people's zero"
From 9/11 hero to people's zero
PHILLIP ADAMS ( Murdoch columnist)

October 18, 2005
SCIENCE produces more equations than aphorisms, but when chaos theory came along to join the uncertainty principle, it spawned a beauty. How does it go? A butterfly beats its wings in Brazil and causes a hurricane in China?

Other than the left-wing conspiracy of global warming, I don't know what caused Hurricane Katrina. Was it a butterfly beating its wings in Abu Ghraib? In Guantanamo Bay? Whatever, wherever, chaos theory is afflicting the Bush administration. As is the uncertainty principle. What is certain is that the presidency looks afflicted, exhausted. The Democrats may be as useless in opposition as our ALP, but it doesn't matter. The ill wind of Katrina has blown them a lot of political good.

It took that natural phenomenon to reveal what the US public had been so reluctant to admit: that their President is a disaster heading an abysmal administration. He's going, going, gone with the wind, even worse off than before September 11, 2001, when the voters were realising they'd elected a dud, when the administration was turning on itself. For example, the word was out - via White House leaks - that Rumsfeld was for the chop. When poor Donald was forced to read the names of likely replacements, he said he'd need a Pearl Harbor to save him. Osama bin Laden obliged.

Bush and the Chaos theory...yep....

But the last lines of this article are really scary:

"Only another Pearl Harbor may save him. Otherwise the Bush experiment has failed."

Yikes.... :scared: That "2nd Pearl Harbor" (or is it 3rd, since I guess 9/11 counted as the 2nd one) is what we are all afraid that these bastards will "have happen"....

2. Yes and here is another left wing conspiracy theory.
From that wild and crazy progressive Galileo the Earth revolves around the Sun, the universe does not revolve around Earth.
