Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Old Guy:

1. Nah, not much.

2. I hold Bush to the standards of anyone who claims the Presidency. It is unusual for any President to so dramatically unleash the dogs of war, on such pissant intelligence. I expected better of him, as I would anyone who claims to "know how to lead", to "be a uniter, not a divider", and to want to avoid nation-building imperialism -- all of which he claimed as virtues.

3. I sure hope not. I think it is as likely, or more likely than it was before the invasion of Iraq.

4. It means that your core beliefs pretty much define what life is going to lay on your plate. Sometimes people build up intellectual edifices that deny these core beliefs, intellectually, while still holding them at a deeper level where the real business of their destiny is being transacted. That's all.

I don't teach Avatar, but if I did, the answer to your sarcasm would be the observation that you ARE experiencing reality, exactly as you believe it to be. There really is no other way TO experience reality; but that's a point that is outside the realm of this thread and your own scope, I think.

So, you gonna answer my question about the purpose of your hostilities? Or are you calling an end to them?
