More Absolute Truths

Got a meeting this morning - not much time to, uh, "blog" - wanted to spend some time looking for the ABSOLUTE TRUTH on-line - from Bush, Dobson, Frist, et al - but came back to that same Wash Post article on Tom DeLay - the one I used yesterday - because something else jumped out at me.

This puff piece on DeLay is a PRE-9/11 article. From May, 13, 2001. The good old days.

So what did Tom want before 9/11?
"I am still trying to drive the president," George W. Bush, toward a more conservative agenda. Toward a "PERMANENT REALIGNMENT" that will eternally discredit Democratic Party policies that DeLay considers "socialist." And, most important, toward building a more "God-centered" nation whose GOVERNMENT WILL PROMOTE PRAYER AND WORSHIP and the TEACHING of VALUES.

"Our entire system is built on the JUDEO-CHRISTIAN ethic, but it fell apart when we started denying God," he says. "If you stand up today and acknowledge God, they will try to destroy you." His main mission, he says, is "to bring us back to the Constitution and to ABSOLUTE TRUTH that has been manipulated and destroyed by a liberal worldview."
Cool.

"Sounds like Tom's on a mission. A mission from God."

Yeah.
Elwood: Where is Matt 'Guitar' Murphy?

Tom: He opened a soul food restaurant with his old lady on Maxwell Street, and he took Blue Lou with him.

Willie: You'll never get Matt and Mr Fabulous outta them high paying gigs.

Jake: Oh yeah? Well me and the Lord? We got an understanding.

Elwood: We're on a mission from God.
DeLay and Co. had to shelve that "mission" for a bit, you know, because of 9/11. But now?

"It's go-time."

Yep.

ABSOLUTE TRUTHS, Part II:

1. Maiden is co-headlining this summer's Ozz-fest
2. The pizza at Casa Bianca (Eagle Rock) is rad
3. Jessica Alba is a stone cold fox
4. Kobe ruined the Lakers
5. You can still "have it your way" at Burger King
6. The Pixies are playing the Wiltern (June 2, 3)
7. I can't wait for the new Star Wars
8. Nothing changes on New Year's Day
9. If you eat at Soot Bull Jeep, you'll end up smelling like smoke and garlic
10. Denim and leather...brought us all together.

More later...

  • The evangelical coded language of the Bush brothers is astounding...I feel like I'm watching an episode of "24" or one of the Mission Impossible movies when they speak. Hello, it's all this evangelical biblical bullshit referencing that is designed to suck in the 'faithful' and fool the rest of us. It's hard to digest, damn motherfuckers.

  • cursing is allowed... hopefully folks are starting to wake up to this theocratic stuff and get that these folks want to decide what you can think, worship, say, do with your body, who you can do it with and when you can die.

    or at least that's my hope...
