scatman dubya

I found this oddity at Rude Pundit (10/12), and while at first I just dismissed it as more of George's odd obsession with potty things, later on I started to worry about it. First, the text: This was on a note sent to Harriet Miers by Big Daddy Dubya: "P.S. No more public scatology."
See, wierd, huh? Dubya the dumbass, or maybe Dubya the anally-obsessive sexual deviant. But then I had a much more chilling thought. What if the word Dubya meant to use wasnt scatalogy, but eschatology (I had to look up the spelling, myself), and what if BushCo is made up, not of mere religious conservatives, but of True Believer types, the type who think maybe Jesus needs a little help getting back to Earth?
es·cha·tol·o·gy n. 1. The branch of theology that is concerned with the end of the world or of humankind.
2. A belief or a doctrine concerning the ultimate or final things, such as death, the destiny of humanity, the Second Coming, or the Last Judgment.
Remember the Rapture? Seen the books by Tim F. LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins called Left Behind? Why would he admonish Meirs to not discuss eschatology? Because it makes her look like a wacko, and the Administration is tainted by association? Or is it because our Big Daddy doesnt want his children to fret about all that "devil" stuff - Big Daddy Dubya and Jesus will make it aaall better (dont you worry yer pretty lil' head, now).
Why doesnt George Bush want to talk about leaving Iraq? Is it pride? Is it responsibility and duty? Or is it that he feels he's battling Satan, and that each soldier's death is in the service of the Lord?
I remember the eighties, when most people I knew were about half convinced that we'd never make it through the full span of our lives before we disappeared in a cloud of radioactive debris. I also remember that Armageddon would occur in the Middle East. One of the major players (Gog or Magog, I cant remember) was supposed to be China - Iraq sits between Isreal (site of Armageddon) and China
Yeah, yeah, I know. As tin-foil hat ideas go, this one is really out there. But it's not my idea. I dont belive in this end-of-the-world crap. But BushCo, they wear their religion on their sleeves, and it's a brand of religion that frequently does believe. Go ahead, try googling words like "armageddon", "rapture", "eschatology", or "messianic" (go ahead, do it right now). There's some real whacked-out shit out there.

I've said this before, but once again: You dont have to believe in conspiracy theories (and shouldnt), but you ignore the ideas in them at your own peril.

Of course, what do I know. Obviously, Satan's been whispering lies in my ears.

I don't for a moment think that Bush is anything of a Christian save in posturing - were he truly a Christian, he would apply the Golden Rule with regard to torture and everything else - yet he has done nothing but the opposite, and I have never seen him do onto others as he would have others do onto him ....unless he is begging for total maltreatment, despoilation, humiliation, torture, and violent death, of course - and I'm sure there are hundreds of millions who would be only too glad to oblige....
