Sweet Greetings from Good Works On Earth
We have again burnished the Name Art of GEORGE WALKER BUSH.
The direction to arrive in the nowments of this Name Art has been
changed, and a link to Arianna Huffington's article,
which we share with you directly below this note, has been
added to further explain the situation in America this day,
May Twenty One, Two Thousand Three.
Note added 20070425 : The Drumbeat of Impeachment is Resonating Across America.
To our knowledge, Congressman Rob Ney, still to this day,
has not gifted Mr. Bush with his Name Art ... we await the
awakenings of Mr. Bush when he reads it with understanding.
You too will know he has received his Name Art ... you will be
able to see the changes in how Mr. George Walker Bush speaks.
This day, listening to Mr. Bush speak tells me he is voicing words
not from the heart but from war role agendas ... war on this,
war on that, corporate rape, environmental degradation, etc.
A G. Walker Bush War
The question of history will be answered ....
WHO AWOKE GEORGE WALKER BUSH ?
Please follow the directions upon arrival at that Name Art.
And now, a woman whose words cut to the chase with the sharp sword of truth :

A White House Fluent In Language Of Fanatics
By : Arianna Huffington
Maybe Karl Rove has moved his office into the "Matrix."
Maybe Laurence Fishburne is auditioning for Ari Fleischer's job.
Maybe it's all just a bad dream: "The White House Reloaded."
I've been racking my brain, trying to reconcile the ever-widening
chasm between what the White House claims to be true and what
is actually true. After all, we know the president and his men are
not stupid. And despite the tidal wave of misinformation pouring
out of their mouths, I don't believe they are consciously lying.
The best explanation I can come up with for the growing gap
between their rhetoric and reality is that we are being governed
by a gang of out and out fanatics.
The defining trait of the fanatic -- be it a Marxist, a fascist, or, gulp,
a Wolfowitz -- is the utter refusal to allow anything as piddling as
evidence to get in the way of an unshakable belief. Bush and
his fellow fanatics are the political equivalent of those yogis who
can hold their breath and go without air for hours. Such is their
mental control, they can go without truth for, well, years. Because,
in their minds, they're always right. Oopso facto.
That pretty much sums up the White House m.o. on everything,
from the status of al-Qaeda to the condition of post-war Iraq to the
magical job-producing virtues of the latest round of tax cuts.
Who else but a fanatic would have made the outrageous claim,
as the president did last Friday, just four days after the deadly
reemergence of al-Qaeda in Riyadh, that "the United States people
are more secure, the world is going to be more peaceful"?
More peaceful than what? The West Bank?
In the weeks before the attacks in Riyadh, the president had
repeatedly maintained that "we are winning the war on terror,"
and that al-Qaeda was "on the run... slowly, but surely, being
decimated." So he clearly wasn't going to let a little fact like 34
dead bodies -- the result of three closely coordinated suicide bomb
attacks -- change his mind.
He was similarly unperturbed by that troubling new report from the
International Institute for Strategic Studies, an influential and
non-partisan British think tank -- released a day after the Riyadh
bombings and three days before the president proclaimed us
"more secure" -- which found that al-Qaeda was "just as dangerous"
and "even harder to identify and neutralize" than it was prior to 9/11.
And just 4 hours after the president strapped on his trusty blinders
and delivered his rosy vision of a more peaceful world, the tranquility
was shattered by the five simultaneous suicide blasts in Casablanca.
Oh well, at least we still have the upcoming Jessica Lynch TV movie
to make us feel good about ourselves -- give or take a few last
minute rewrites by the BBC.
The president's evidence-be-damned fanaticism is equally apparent
when it comes to the state of post-war Iraq. "Life is returning to
normal," he proclaimed just two weeks after the fall of Baghdad.
"Things have settled down inside the country."
Really? Just who is preparing his morning briefing papers? Pollyandy
Card? Little Condoleezza Sunshine? Did he bother consulting any
Iraqis about "normal life" there? Probably not. One of the keys to
being a flourishing fanatic is to surround yourself with those of a
shared -- and equally deluded -- mindset.
And according to that mindset, the definition of "settling down"
can be expanded to include rampant looting, sporadic water and
electrical service, hospitals in disastrous condition, outbreaks of
cholera and dysentery, streets filled with uncollected garbage and
raw sewage, half a dozen ransacked nuclear facilities, missing
barrels of radioactive material, growing anti-American sentiment,
and disparate ethnic and religious groups arming themselves.
No wonder Don Rumsfeld called the media's reporting of all this
"an overstatement." It's just another "normal" weekend at
And don't bother trying to make the case that everything isn't
hunky-dory in Baghdad to rabid acolytes such as Jay Garner.
Like the president, the demoted viceroy doesn't care what the
facts indicate -- to him even a looted and punctured glass can
be half-full. "We ought to be beating our chests every day," he
said, dismissing the notion that any of us should feel bad about
the problems besetting Iraq. "We ought to look in a mirror and
get proud. We ought to stick out our chests and suck in our bellies
and say, 'Damn, we're Americans.'" That's sure to win us some
more goodwill around the world. Hoo-rah, and pass the Kool-Aid,
And if you think the president is saving his fanaticism only for the
international sector, think again. His dogged devotion to selling his
latest round of tax cuts for the wealthy as a "jobs creation plan" --
despite an avalanche of evidence that it will do nothing of the sort --
proves that he can be just as fervent on the home front.
"Jobs are on the line," said Bush after the Senate passed its version
of the tax cut. "I call on Congress to resolve their differences quickly
so I can sign a bill that will help create jobs, boost take home pay
and spur economic growth." And for those with "...illionaire" as part
of their economic description, it probably will.
It obviously makes no difference to the president that 10 Nobel Prize
winning economists have condemned his tax cuts as "not the answer"
to high unemployment, or that a new Congressional Budget Office
study found that the "jobs and growth package" will actually have
very little effect on long-term growth. Not interested. Not listening.
The 1.4 million jobs the White House repeatedly says the tax cuts
will create are more a matter of a fanatic's faith than of dispassionate
The fact is there are now 2.1 million more unemployed Americans
than when Bush took office -- the vast majority of them having lost
their jobs after the president's initial $1.3 trillion tax cut was passed
in 2001. Difficult evidence to ignore -- unless "ignore the evidence"
is your eleventh commandment.
A popular definition of insanity is: doing the same thing over and
over again while expecting a different result. Well, that seems
to be the White House theory on the power of tax cuts to produce
new jobs: It didn't work before; let's try it again.
Welcome to the D.C. Matrix.
