Mr. Bush - as a christian, do you believe in creation or evolution?

If you believe in creation, do you ascribe to the distinctly Arkansonian view that Adam and Eve coexiested with the dinosaurs?

If you hold counsel with a higher father, rather than your own flesh and blood one, about how many times per day does he state that you must "spill the blood of the infidels"?

What were your final grades in English - in high school and in college?

How do you pronounce nu-clear, and if you say nukyeler, can I zap you with a cattle prod?

How can you promote a "culture of life", when you championed the death penalty in Texas as Governor and have been the singlemost cause of death in Iraq, even surpassing Saddams previous record?

Was anyone shocked or awed by operation "Shock and Awe"?

Did bombing Iraq, at any time, give an erection better than you get with Viagra?

How long have you been taking Viagra?

:hippy:

All he would do is get that blank look on his face (you know, like the one he got when he was told that the Twin Towers had been hit). Besides, the media are so afraid of the gawd-nazis that they don't dare ask any REAL questions! You have to read the foreign papers for those.

Uh, you don't OWN cats.  The minute they walk into your life, povided you really care about them, you become their servant, their tax base, their scratching post, their bedwarmer, their toy, and the list goes on. . .  You are THEIRS to do with as they will.
You are doubly doomed when you can speak limited Catonese.

I figured this avatar was suitable for a cat loving forum, and I dress like that 98% of the time.  All my jeans are black, and I have how many black Dickies workshirts?

By the way, my hair is really medium brown with red highlights.  Eyes are green, if anyone cares.  Hey!  Polaroid instants in bad lighting are not good pictures for this sort of thing.

More questions....

Now that the neo-cons and the rabid religious right of the republican party are well on their way to wiping everyone else off the face of the earth.... What will you do when you discover that the problems was yourselves, all along?

Why is it that promising universal health care in Iraq is democracy yet when it is mentioned in this country it is Communism, Socialism or just Downright Evil?

How, exactly, did starting a war in Iraq strike a major blow in the "war on terror"? There were no terrorists in Iraq before us....

In your dreams, does your dick shoot oil instead of sperm?

Does it ever bother you that you have emboldened the stupidest segment of our society to come crawling out from underneath the rock it has been shading itself from others observation to become a driving force into our country being drawn back into the dark ages? As a followup - when will you issue a presidential proclamation declaring the earth is flat, the sun revolves around us and all who disagree with you should be burnt at the stake as heathens, heretics and just generally not nice people?

Does it ever bother you that you have failed and had to be bailed out in just about everything you have done and being president is turning out to be no different?

How, exactly, do staged "town hall" meetings fall under the heading of not only freedom of speech but of freedom of the press? Or do you rely upon the stupidity and blindness and unwillingness to investigate beyond what they are spoon fed of your "followers"?

Don't know how I could've forgotten that yes, we are slaves to our cats; perhaps I was just so dumbfounded by the current administration that I lapsed into idiom. :laugh: Here's a question (or two) for the shrub: Just how did the religious right get ahold of your id?  Addict and f*ckup that you are, why do you just exchange one rigid belief system for another?  Can't you understand that the "get tough" stance you advocate is just unworkable (look at what a handful of "insurgents" are doing to your "techno troops") and makes us the laughing stock of the rest of the world? Don't you understand that insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results?
Ah, for some REAL journalism! Oh, well, maybe CPB will lose its government funding and we'll get the REAL story! :headbang:

What I would really love to know is this....

Why is it that a republican dominated congress that brought us "freedom fries" (which demanded a printing job for menus that taxpayers paid for), the overly childish and absurd display of congressmen standing on the steps of some place in Washington with theirs hearts on their sleeves and their hands on their chests, overly loudly proclaiming the phrase "under god" when reciting the pledge when an atheist took the case to court (even though that phrase was inserted well after the intial pledge was written), who attempted to intervene in keeping a brain dead woman alive against all possible medical evidence......

Why are these people not voted out of office?

Have we really sunk to such levels of stupidity as a nation that we actually endorse this kind of behaviour?

The separation of church and state hangs in the balance, and does the Supreme Court offer a definitive ruling? No, they rule ambiguously - a display on federal grounds is ok, but a display within federal buildings is not. Fuck the ten commandments - they have no place in government.

Now there is a movement to allow worship and prayer in schools. I say this - only if you allow wiccans to charge a circle whilst skyclad within the same school. Only if you allow Muslims to bang their heads upon the ground a pray to Allah four times per day in schools. Only if you allow satanists to do whatever they want to during school. Only if you allow my own personal religion - which means inventing whatever rites I wish to, on the spot, during school......

You want to change the constitution, be prepared to accept all of the fucking consequences of that action. If xtians can have mandatory prayer in schools I see no reason why my own personal religion cannot have one mandatory sacrifice of one xtian per school day in school.....

Human sacrifice, in my religion, is prayer...... And they have to xtian... They have a certain piquant taste....  :banghead:

Just in case it does not:

Quote

The number of affluent individuals and married couples who paid no federal income taxes jumped more than 15 percent in 2002, to 5,650, new government data showed yesterday.

The chances of having a large income but not paying taxes on any of it are growing, according to the data, issued in the Internal Revenue Service's annual report to Congress on well-to-do Americans who live tax free. About one in every 436 high-income Americans paid no taxes in 2002, up from one in 531 in 2001 and one in 1,010 in 2000.

Over all, the top 2 percent of earners, the 2.5 million filers with income of $200,000 or more, paid almost 27 cents in taxes for each dollar of income they reported in 2002, other I.R.S. data showed. This group accounted for 53.5 percent of the income tax paid by all Americans.

Among that high-income group, however, almost 83,000, or one in 33, paid less than a dime in taxes for every dollar of income. An additional 79,000 paid less than 15 cents. The average for all Americans was 13 cents.

Congress taxes Americans on their worldwide income. Of the 5,650 individuals and couples who paid no income taxes to the United States, only 728 paid any to a foreign government, while 4,922 lived completely free of income tax.

The I.R.S. measured income in two ways.

One was by adjusted gross income, the last line on the front page of the Form 1040 tax return. By this measure, 2,959 affluent individuals and married couples paid no federal income tax, down from 3,385 in 2001, but up from 2,328 in 2000. There were 60 such examples in 1977, when a dollar was worth three times as much as in 2002.

On a worldwide basis, 2,551 such individuals and couples paid no tax in 2002, down from 2,875 in 2001, but up from 2,022 in 2000. There were 37 such examples in 1977, the first year the agency disclosed such data.

The second measure, giving a fuller picture, was expanded income, which also includes money from sources like tax-exempt interest and untaxed Social Security benefits. By this measure, 5,650 well-to-do individuals and married couples paid no federal income tax in 2002 , up from 4,910 in 2001 and 2,766 in 2000. There were 85 such examples in 1977.

Worldwide on this basis, there were 4,922 individuals and couples who lived tax free in 2002, up from 4,119 in 2001 and 2,320 in 2000. There were 64 such examples in 1977.

The I.R.S. report said that "the most important item in eliminating tax" was taking income in the form of tax-exempt interest on state and municipal bonds. Nearly two-thirds of those who lived tax free reported income from such bonds.

The four largest items that reduced income subject to taxation, the I.R.S. said, were miscellaneous deductions; interest paid on borrowing to finance investments; various tax credits; and large medical bills, which can be deducted once they exceed either 7.5 percent or 10 percent of adjusted gross income, depending on the taxpayer's circumstances.
