trippin with bush
everything bush does one has to say why, why, why did he say this.

this time i am talking what he said with Israel. he doesn't give a sh*t about Israel and that has been one of the big curses for him is he has done nothing to help the two sides along. and then the other day he stands with Sharon and gives his powerful decision, some of it good, but cause he didn't participate with the two parties for the last four years, and has allowed it to disinigrate.........his stepping up at that time just angered all the Muslim world creating more mess.

why did he do it

why did he stand with Sharon, who he doesn't care a squat about

the Florida Jewish vote.


he totally threw out a grenade in that area for the Jewish vote in Florida.

and this is why this man has to go, that the repugs aren't seeing

as I saw a picture of Bush and Sharon together at that photo op, I knew bad things were about to go down.

2. chew on this * gem.
"I'm the commander - see, I don't need to explain - I don't need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the President. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation."

4. Here's why.....
In the United States, several million people have succumbed to an extraordinary delusion. In the 19th century, two immigrant preachers cobbled together a series of unrelated passages from the Bible to create what appears to be a consistent narrative: Jesus will return to Earth when certain preconditions have been met. The first of these was the establishment of a state of Israel. The next involves Israel's occupation of the rest of its "biblical lands" (most of the Middle East), and the rebuilding of the Third Temple on the site now occupied by the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa mosques. The legions of the antichrist will then be deployed against Israel, and their war will lead to a final showdown in the valley of Armageddon. The Jews will either burn or convert to Christianity, and the Messiah will return to Earth.

What makes the story so appealing to Christian fundamentalists is that before the big battle begins, all "true believers" (ie those who believe what they believe) will be lifted out of their clothes and wafted up to heaven during an event called the Rapture. Not only do the worthy get to sit at the right hand of God, but they will be able to watch, from the best seats, their political and religious opponents being devoured by boils, sores, locusts and frogs, during the seven years of Tribulation which follow.

The true believers are now seeking to bring all this about. This means staging confrontations at the old temple site (in 2000, three US Christians were deported for trying to blow up the mosques there), sponsoring Jewish settlements in the occupied territories, demanding ever more US support for Israel, and seeking to provoke a final battle with the Muslim world/Axis of Evil/United Nations/ European Union/France or whoever the legions of the antichrist turn out to be.
