Bush has Epiphany

Quoting Digby—quoting Bush, A lot of people in America see this as a confrontation between good and evil, including me," Bush said during a 1 1/2 -hour Oval Office conversation on cultural changes and a battle with terrorists that he sees lasting decades. "There was a stark change between the culture of the '50s and the '60s -- boom -- and I think there's change happening here," he added. "It seems to me that there's a Third Awakening."

Faith? Third Awakening of religious devotion? Folks, with the looting of the national treasury by wealthy corporate-affiliated Americans; the squandering of what was left; the Chinese holding most of the mortgages on our houses; civil liberties curtailed; the decline of American influence in the world; extreme U.S. violence on Iraq; not to mention no money for Medicaid nursing beds, no health insurance for millions, no new schools, falling wages and a standard of living tumbling like lava down a volcano-- in the words of Lou Reed, “you’re going to need a busload of faith to get by.”

I don’t know about all the evil knowing and newly awakened faithful; but I for one believe that I’ve seen the evil and it us. I came to this epiphany without a religious awakening.

Well and logically written with the fitting of truth.


I haven't had time in the past few months to write. But, as the near terms arrive, the disease might have trouble staying in remission.
