Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Leader.

We suppose that something like this billboard along I-4 in Florida was just a matter of time.


There's more here.

What a revolting predicament this has turned out to be....

Or shoudl I say banana republic?

Who was the jerk we just toppled who liekd to place his likeness in effigy all over his country? Let me think...

it's disturbing, but it is free speech. i can't say i am enthusiastic about it's presence, but at the same time i can't support people who suggest buring it, toppling it, gluing shoes to his face (funny, but not right). the suggestions i support are the ones involving other billboards. why can't we have billboards that denounce his policies?

i guess i am depressed. it all seems so inevitable. i re-read the handmaids tale and it felt spookily familiar. and it seems like we are destined to go through this cycle... and the sick part is, i don't think that even half of the people who supported bush in the election support his long term plans. they got hoodwinked, and it's a shame. because the majority of republicans are good folks with different opinions. they're not stupid, or evil. and it makes the whole thing that much more sad.

do we have a democratic suicide hotline set up?

Worship the president, worship the executive branch of government, worship, worship, worship, moral values, worship, everything is wonderful in iraq, worship the almighty George W. Bush in all his grandeur, He, the almighty is your leader, your leader, your leader, conform to your leader...

Ahhh, nothing like a good BRAINWASHING on you way to work every morning.

Now what we need is someone go up to that sign and hit GW Bush in the face with the bottom of their shoe...

Another thing that is outrageous to no end...

"Click bang! Online hunting?"

Headline: Inventive hunter hopes to give new meaning to 'point and shoot'

---John Lockwood is a Texas hunter...he wants to share the hunting experience with people who would pay him hundreds of dollars to use a mouse to kill a deer at his Web site.

"The idea came from another Web site that has viewing of animals and a co-worker asked me, 'Boy, wouldn't it be great if you could put a gun to that?'" says Lockwood.---

This guy is not an inventor, he's a red-neck who has no respect for nature or wildlife. Who in their right mind would look at a defenseless animal and say "Boy, wouldn't it be great to kill that animal for no other reason then to say that I did." Do they plan to just let the animal rot and go to complete waste? When the animal is just wounded (the idiot who shoots it online misses and only hit the deer's leg), will that animal just suffer? And when a human comes on the screen and forgets to turn off the online hunt, what prevents him to be slaughtered by some boob with a DSL connection?

I can hardly wait until we get to have our Bush kitsch - sort of like the Mao trinkets that were so popular in China.

"worship the almighty George W. Bush in all his grandeur"

It's the pinnacle of nationalism run amok. It isn't enough to take pride in your country, you must have a leader annointed from on high.

You might almost have thought that modern society had done away with god-kings. Perhaps you can take the peasants out of the monarchy, but you can't take the monarchy out of the peasants.

I know it's his fans doing it but isn't this a sign of end-times? Not to be a religious wacko but Bush is almost painted as a deity by his following (case in point - this sign) and the teachings of Jesus Christ are just mocked by these people - if not perverted even though they claim to be all about values and morals and such.
