Xanax poster queen Laura Bush doesn't believe her husband's bad poll numbers.
"I don't really believe those polls. I travel around the country. I see people, I see their responses to my husband. I see their response to me," she said.
"As I travel around the United States, I see a lot of appreciation for him. A lot of people come up to me and say, 'Stay the course'."
Of course what is said, and one wonders is if she even knows, is that Mrs. Bush travels in the same bubble her hus band does. Hand picked and pre-screened crowds of hard core supporters. Dissenters locked away in "free speech" zones hundreds of yards away from any where Ms. Bush might see them. So of, course she has no clue to the reality.
Many people have wrapped themselves in bubbles as well, preventing themselves from seeing the whole picture. watching FOX News, you may think things are going good, if only those protesters would shut up. I myself spent a lot of time thinking everything was a conspiracy, until I realized that I was only reading the news from conspiracy websites. So I started reading different sources and realized that...uh, well, everything is a conspiracy!
I was just reading an article over at Truthdig, about BattleCry!, a Christian brainwashing seminar aimed at American youths. Now, I've got nothing against the Bible (well, actually I do. What a load of crap) but it seems to me if you limit yourself to only listening to Christian rock, watching only Christian entertainment and reading only Christian literature you have placed yourself in a bubble as well. Several atendees interviewed said it was okay that Bush lied to start the war in Iraq, because God had placed him in power. Funny, I thought it was scrubbed voter rolls in 2000, and touch screen voting fraud in Ohio in 2004, but if that's the way God works, well then I don't feel so bad not believing in that shit. Let me spell it out for those whose brain may have been damaged from too much Bible reading. God broke one of His own commandments (Thou Shall Not Steal) to put George Bush in power to break another commandment (Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness). I guess that's why I have such a hard time with religion, if God is such a fucking hypocrite, why should I follow Him?
Well, actually God is not a hypocrite. However, those who follow Him blindly are, because they've never learned to think for themselves or question their leaders who exploit their belief system for their own gain. Ron Luce, and BattleCry! want to remove the peace and love from Christianity and make something as evil as they claim Islam to be.
