18 years after Waco, Davidians believe Koresh was God
Saw this article this morning on CNN's site;

On Tuesday, Martin and a handful of other surviving Branch Davidians will gather at a hotel off a freeway in this dusty Central Texas town to remember the federal siege on their religious compound, an event that has become synonymous with the word Waco.

On that day in 1993, a 51-day standoff between the armed Davidians and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Federal Bureau of Investigation ended in a fire and the deaths of at least 76 people. Among them were Martin's husband and four of her children.

In the garden center, Martin nervously picks up her pace, examining each plant, smelling and touching their blooms, kneading the soil.

The memories have sharpened each year, not dulled as she had hoped.


My brain hurts.

1. True Believers - They adore the man who murdered their friends and families
It is a cult, after all.

6. That could be a by-product of the fact that by killing him, he became
a martyr. Bad move by the Feds.

11. Nietzsche
I find that guy such a joke. A weird little weasel that sponged off his mama all his life until mama died, then sponged off his sister (an anti-semite nut job). But he wrote stuff like "Going to women.. be sure to take your whip!" Ha ha ha ha ha ha! He had sex once in his life. When he graduated some of the fellers took him to a whorehouse. He got syphilis which eventually gave him paresis and killed him. But he wrote and got famous for all this "superman" crap. What a joke! I find that certain mental types gravitate to that guy and also to such vermin as Hitler, Ayn Rant, the Marquis de Sade, and so on. Kook magnet literature which appeals to whack jobs who want to read up stuff that justifies their childish selfishness and fundamental narcissism. Little shriveled up mental midgets who read up on stuff to make themselves think they're really something. Hmm.. sounds like "libertarians" don't it? Oh, and Star Trek aficionados. Comic book nuts. And of course.. Re-pugs. So the little weasel claimed God's dead. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Naw. I like that joke grafitti: "God is dead" --Nietzsche "Nietzsche is dead" --God.
