I hope you're sleeping better than I have been lately. I bet you're about to OD on Tylenol PM! It doesn't help me much, so I lie in bed trying to think of anything other than 2 Nov, the Cardinals, or my husband. The Cardinals turned out to be a losing battle. I told my friend that it would just figure that the Cards would lose the World Series right when my husband gets home and he'd be in a really foul mood for the whole weekend! Hopefully seeing me after nine months can ease the pain...
I wish I could talk to you. You get such bullcrap thrown your way, and sometimes I worry about you. You won an award for best movie villan, which might be humorous if I weren't so naggingly sure that those people actually believe it. You get drawn as everything from Hitler to a special needs child, and if I feel the sting, I know you must too.
I just wish you could know that some of us out there really do care about you. We want you to win, because we think you've been a great leader in trying times. We want an aggressive leader who does what's right for the US and we've been behind you since 9/11. We're afraid of what happens if you don't win, but we're also slightly afraid of what happens if you do. There are some who have called for riots, lawsuits, and even for your assassination.
If you win, you have four more years of battle with the Islamobarbarians to look forward to. If you lose, you get a good nights sleep and the weight of the world lifted from your shoulders. I wish you could have both, but I'm afraid the former is more important right now. But with you as our president, both of us will sleep peacefully someday.
I wish you luck and tranquility in the coming week.
Get 'er done!!
Sarah, what a load of crap.
PS Does Bush really know you? Not that I care. But your baking a cake if Arafat dies tells me a lot about you Sarah. I know you are not a good person. Good people don't celebrate when other people die.

Hey, Sarah, thanks for the post. When I worked at the DA's office, the Chief Assistant had a horrible guy on Death Row. He brought in a cake the day of his execution. We were happy to celebrate the grandma killer's demise. Can I come over for the Arafat celebration? Helpful hint: we should NOT invite dc. But as a party game, perhaps we can speculate with colorful language as to what dc stands for and what putting two initials in lower case says about character and self-confidence. Talk to you later! (Oh, and instead of candles, we just flicked the light switch up and down a few times at the magic moment. Hey, that should give the trolls something else to focus on!)

This is from Silent Running blog on Arafat.
'This reminds me of the old joke about Hitler. He asked his astrologer when he would die.
"Mein Fuhrer, you will die on a Jewish holiday."
"Ach, any day you die will be a Jewish Holiday".'

Sure, dc, Bush reads my blog. We write emails back and forth all the time. Are you really that dumb? This was supposed to be a symbolic
And if celebrating the deaths of Uday, Qsay, and Arafat is wrong, then I don't want to be right! Cake for everybody! Except you, dc. You can cry for the old terrorist if you want.

Sorry dc, but if you look up terrorist in the dictionary, it ought to have Arafat's picture. I'm all for terrorists dying- I don't care if it's caused by the Military, the Courts, or the Grim Reaper- just as long as it happens. Does this make me bad? I can live with that.
Save me some (virtual) cake, Sarah...

Sarah, let me know when the party is...I'll be right over. And I'll bring the keg.

Is dc one of those liberals who hopes for the death of any Republican?

Pope fears Bush is antichrist, journalist contends
New Catholic Times, Ã‚Â May 18, 2003 Ã‚Â
WASHINGTON DC -- According to freelance journalist Wayne Madsden, "George W Bush's blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs and his constant references to 'evil doers,' in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations--the anti-Christ."
Madsen, a Washington-based writer and columnist, who often writes for Counterpunch, says that people close to the pope claim that amid these concerns, the pontiff wishes he was younger and in better health to confront the possibility that Bush may represent the person prophesized in Revelations. John Paul II has always believed the world was on the precipice of the final confrontation between Good and Evil as foretold in the New Testament.
Before he became pope, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla said, "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel."
The pope worked tirelessly to convince leaders of nations on the UN Security Council to oppose Bush's war resolution on Iraq. Vatican sources claim they had not seen the pope more animated and determined since he fell ill to Parkinson's Disease. In the end, the pope did convince the leaders of Mexico, Chile, Cameroon and Guinea to oppose the U.S. resolution.
Madsen contends that "Bush is a dangerous right-wing ideologue who couples his political fanaticism with a neo-Christian blood cult."

Lesson to be learned from the World Series:
If you are highly motivated and optimistic, nothing can stop you from accomplishing your goals, even when you are down 3 games to the Yankees.
Perhaps John Francois Kerry would like to keep that in mind as he continually roots for defeat in Iraq.
PS - Rooting for the death of a degenerate subhuman terrorist who is responsible for the deaths of American citizens is normal. Only the Eurotrash and terrorists want him to pull through! BTW - doesn't he want to collect on his 72 virgins anyway?

While killing in self-defence may be a sad reality of life, I'm truly disgusted by people who lack the emotional depth to approach the situation with humility.
After all, aren't you glad the insurgents didn't "Bring it on!" to your husband as they've done other 800 some-odd troops since your cock-sure swaggering President goaded them to?
Show some respect for life... that's what separates you from those who don't; be it terrorists, Bush, or even Kerry.
Now flame me as I know you will.

Ã‚Â Using the name of Christ yet being the enemy of Christ, the Antichrist is a threat to every civilization and every person. Could George Bush be the Antichrist?
By Mike Moore
Having been raised as a Christian, I was taught early that the Antichrist was someone who would come in the name of Christ but be the enemy of Christ. Using that definition, let us examine the proposition that George W. Bush could be the Antichrist. If Jesus Christ was in BushÂ’s place and he was the president of the United States, would he have taken any of the actions that Bush has taken, including the war in Iraq? In other words, is Bush following the teachings of Christ? Â“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know themÂ” (Matthew 7:20).
Christ taught us to love one another, especially our enemies (Matthew 5:43-46). Christ said that even the pagans love those who are like themselves, but the true mark of love is to love those that are different from you. Christ taught us to turn the other cheek and to Â“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.Â” Did Bush turn the other cheek when he falsely proclaimed Iraq as a threat? Do you think Bush loves his enemies? Do you think he even loves his friends, since he openly attacks those friends that disagree? Do you think Bush loves Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein? If he is a follower of Christ, then he must love them. Have you ever seen love in BushÂ’s eyes? Have you ever heard Bush talk about loving oneÂ’s neighbor? Does he treat the inmates at Guantanamo or the prisoners of Iraq like he would want to be treated? Do you think Christ would say, Â“You are either for us or against us?Â” Have BushÂ’s actions caused there to be more or less love in the world?
The war on Iraq was apparently undertaken because God whispered in BushÂ’s ear that war was the only way to solve the problem. I hate to tell Bush this, but God doesnÂ’t whisper those kinds of things in peopleÂ’s ears. That is the job of the devil! Jesus would never condone a war, as his whole message was to use love, not violence, to solve our problems. War is always a failure of civilization. Bush has set back the civilization of planet Earth. Anyone who wages war in the name of Christ is committing the ultimate Christian sin.
Bush makes a big show of being against abortion in order to advance his political career. His public claim is that abortion is immoral. Yet his actions have resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, most of whom were innocent of any Â“crime.Â” And apparently, Bush himself was once involved in an abortion by a former girlfriend. By his actions, Bush has now caused the release of thousands of tons of depleted uranium in Iraq, which will cause birth defects for generations to come. IsnÂ’t that just as immoral as an abortion? And if we judge by the shear number of atrocities, isnÂ’t Bush the most hypocritical champion of human rights?
The Bible says not to lie, and Christ reinforced that message since lying destroys the very fabric of our civilization. As I see it, Bush has told more lies than anyone in the history of our presidency. How can that be Christian? Bush said that he would unite us, yet the country and the world have never been more divided. Other lies have been told about uranium, weapons of mass destruction, the connection between Iraq and 9/11, the economy, and the environment. Is it possible for one to lie in the name of Christ?
Many questions persist. Would Christ have asked that the votes not be counted in Florida? Would Christ send Powell to lie before the UN? Would Christ make campaign ads that continually distort the position of his opponent, just to win an election? Would Christ curse and use the name of God in vain in the White House? Would Christ alienate the rest of the world by unilateral action and my-stick-is-bigger-than-your-stick international politics? Would Christ try to strip Americans of their basic human rights, such as access to an attorney and the right to be presented with formal charges regarding alleged violations of national or international law? Would Christ tell military veterans that he loves them and then cut their benefits? Would Jesus have done any of these actions? I think not.
In summary, Bush pretends to come in the name of Jesus Christ and misses no opportunity to exploit Christ for his own personal political advantage. But in every case, Bush has done the opposite of what Christ taught us to do. This is how Bush has led America and this is the example he has set for Â“hisÂ” people. The people who support BushÂ’s war in the name of Christ surely share in his sins, and BushÂ’s sins are magnified by the number of people he has misled in the name of Christ. In many ways, Bush, with his fundamentalist Christian attitude, is no different than the fundamentalist Muslims. All kill in the name of God, and I suspect that God would like to have His name kept out of it entirely.
Is it possible that Bush is the Antichrist? His Antichrist-like actions make one wonder.
