How Does Bush Sleep at Night?


By: Jason Miller

What is it that enables George Bush to sleep at night when his avarice and iniquity as a ruler exceed that of Marie Antoinette? Could it be that he slept through his history lectures about the French Revolution while he was at Yale? Perhaps his capacity to sleep soundly stems from having the most powerful military in the history of humanity at his disposal. Being a member of a dynasty dating back to the 1930's would also tend to endow one with a sense of serenity as one plundered a nation's resources, shredded the U.S. Constitution, initiated illegal wars, bullied most of the world, slaughtered innocents in the name of "spreading freedom".

The power of psychological manipulation
While there could be many reasons for Bush's smug self-assurance as he gives the finger to most of the world's citizenry, I theorize that his sense of security stems from the level of protection he derives from America's Propaganda Matrix, the propaganda machine which enables the American Nightmare to masquerade as the American Dream. A friend recently commented to me that Orwell had written "1984" as a warning, but that the Bush administration had adopted it as a blue-print. Free and constant access to the mainstream media (to spread their sugar-coated versions of Pax Americana), genuflecting pundits like Michelle Malkin and Charles Krauthammer, corporate ownership of mainstream media, textbook companies and schools which portray a white-washed version of U.S. history, heavily funded "think tanks" like the Hoover Institution, and the perpetuation of the myth of the United States as the "good guys" in many mindless Hollywood blockbusters unite to provide U.S. leaders a powerful yet subtle means to manipulate their subjects. Why would Bush worry about the consequences of his actions when the propaganda machine at his disposal, like his military machine, is unparalleled in human history?

Not unlike the program the machines created in the movie called the Matrix, America's Propaganda Matrix manipulates the poor and working class by lulling them into an illusory sense of joy over being so "free". While wealthy dynasties (like the Bush clan), their sycophants, and their corporate cronies pillage the U.S. treasury and employ foreign policies (like the Bush Doctrine) to seek world domination, an apathetic American public joyfully slaps magnetic ribbons supporting the Iraqi invasion onto its gas-guzzling SUV's, smiles and nods its assent at federal budgets calling for increases in an insanely bloated defense budget and cuts in spending for social programs, lightheartedly surrenders its civil liberties, and blithely watches the wealth gap widen to monumental proportions. The brilliance of the American Propaganda Matrix is that it enables a covert nobility to rule behind the guise of a "federal republic". With virtually no open acts of violence or totalitarian measures, a small fraction of the population in the United States maintains a vast majority of the world's wealth and power by ensuring that "their people" are elected and appointed to the key positions in the U.S. government. Living in the delusory American Propaganda Matrix, many poor and working class Americans contentedly go about their lives as the "freest people in the world" enjoying the fruits of "sublime capitalism". In the American Propaganda Matrix, the American Way is The Way, and there is no room for critical evaluation. Those beguiled by the American Propaganda Matrix will tenaciously adhere to their delusions, regardless of who suffers or dies as a result.

Your computer has a virus, Mr. Rove
Unfortunately for those in power in the United States, the American Propaganda Matrix has a "virus". The "virus" consists of activists for peace and social justice who are attacking the "program" which manipulates Americans into believing in the false construct of the U.S. as a benevolent world power with political and economic systems which the world “must

It could be he's using a combination of coke and beer. More likely, he sleeps easy because he just don't care about anything or anybody but himself. You and I, we don't exist for George Bush except as tin soldiers for his War on Terror and raw material for his empire building. George Bush sleeps easily indeed in his Cloud Cuckoo Land.

In light of Wee Georgie's Skull and Bones initiation rituals, one wonders if the comparison to Marie Antoinette might extend to their sleeping habits as well.

According to historical accounts, Marie would sleep with any valet as well as with courtiers. George certainly has plenty of sycophants of all classes from which to choose.

Like Jeff Gannon who likes to come into the Whitehouse any time he pleases and lob soft ball questions to the Prez....Who knows who had the close relationship to him allowing him entrance to the Whitehouse like that...

When you vest so much power in a single office, you make a George W. Bush inevitable.As with professional atheletes, the postion is so compellingly attractive, many compete dedicatedly and the most capable of achieveing the position win out.
Trying to fill the job with someone who will do "the right thing"(according to whom?)is silly and unrealistic; human nature just does'nt allow for it.It is man's nature to do what is in his own best interest.Instead of decrieing human nature, accept it and understand that the only solution is massive de-centralization of power.
Give up the myth that centralized authority can produce the results you expect;everyone has their expectations, including those in positions of authority.The myth has no validity and no basis in reality.
If you learn to trust the judgement of your fellow human beings,you won't see a utopia, but that's an illusion.What you will see is a much better reality than what results from efforts to enforce a "utopia" through the heavy, coercive hand of government.

Your ideas are beautiful but in the case of this catastrophy when we did put our trust in others all hell broke lose. This government prevented every day people from helping these dying human beings. The Red Cross was not allowed into New Orleans. Food and water were kept from these dying people. This is criminal and heads need to roll.

What still surprises me is that Clinton was savaged over lying about Lewinski and that Bush gets away with lying about Chemical, Biological and Nuclear weapons in Iraq! (Far more serious an issue). Isn't there someone we can write to and complain? (I'm not American so I can't write to Congress).

I suppose you could try the U.N., but the Secretary General has already said that the "shock and awe" invasion and occupation of Iraq was illegal and contrary to the United Nations charter of which the U.S. is a founding party.

None of that international law stuff seems to have much effect on this administration, even 'tho the U.S. consitution makes international treaty obligations the highest law of the land.

In fact, Wee Georgie (supported in some measure by the U.S. Supreme Court and by self-exemption from international courts) puts himself above and beyond ALL laws that might possibly constrain his Commander-In-Chief role in any way whatever. And, if you're an "ememy combattant" (something that he alone decides with absolutely no appeal) you might as well just curl up in a tight ball and kiss your arse goodbye. Just ask Jose Padilla who actually is a U.S. citizen.

Whatever you do, don't even think about coming to the U.S. to complain or even to change planes for another destination. According to court testimony given by US-DOJ lawyers, foreign citizens who change planes at airports in the United States can legally be seized, detained without charges, deprived of access to a lawyer or the courts, and even denied basic necessities like food.

Good luck to you and the rest of the world.

Clinton presented the same info that Bush did in 1998 and everyone was on board then too. Clinton lied under oath, that is a federal offense. Bush has never lied under oath and never lied. He just presented the info that was given to him. You should then be blaming the CIA, FBI, and NSA for giving bad information to the President...Wait, this was Clinton's FBI, CIA, and NSA. You wouldn't want the blame to go back to your hero would you???? Can you say Able Danger??? I sure can...

P.S. Stay out of America too...There are enough Socialists on this site and in this country to keep things to the Right. You might just tip the scales further in the Right direction????

They sure are an irritating bunch, ain't they. It's really frustrating to see how many of them don't seem yet to have accepted U.S. supremacy in knowing the truth about all things political and telling it to the world.

But don't worry. Now that Karen Hughes is in the State Department, she has a plan for brainwashing ... er, excuse me, educating ... the poor ignorant slobs. Only problem is, it leaves a bit of a hole in Wee Georgie's guidance on Right thinking, but I suppose that doesn't really matter too much.

And Bush has lied like a rug and murdered like Ted Bundy and done criminal negligence like a slumlord. The evidence is all there with MANY whistleblowers including Karen Kwiatkowski, the Project for New American Century (Bushco's "mafia" ) and the Downing Street Minutes/Memos, and millions of eyewitnesses to the non-stop corruption everyday. Bush has an array of cronies in high places as well to protect him, as well as his scandalous and unconscionable clan . That is how they all sleep , they have NO conscience.

Again, all you Socialists do is bad mouth. Where are your plans for anything? They DON'T EXIST. Your facts are scewed and your DSM have about as much authenticity as the Rather docs.

Where are all these "whistleblowers" and where are the upcoming trials against Bush? Your "whistleblowing" info must be real concrete. ;)~

According to you Socialists, Bush planned 9-11, Bush has somehow caused all the pollution on our planet, he lied about Iraq (with the same info Clinton gave), Bush caused Hurricane Katrina, Bush caused oil prices to increase, Bush caused the 2000 recession (before he was ever in office), Bush forces manufacturing jobs out of the country, Bush caused the deficit, Bush caused you to have the shits last night, and Bush is to blame for your inability to get laid? Do I have all these things correct???

You people are out of touch with REALITY. But you are in the Majority? I think not and your side is getting weaker by the day as the Right gets stronger. Your majority only exists on sites like these. I love reading your Bush killed black people in N.O. stuff. I love to see that you people actually beleive this. I am just waiting to see you Socialists win an election with this pompus crap. Your minority beleives your conspiracy theories but the majority is the one that wins elections. No matter how hard you try and cheat...We still win. The democratic way, one legal vote at a time.

I'll be talking to you soon. How about some more 5 year old links that don't prove your point??? You are out there Avr...

The plan is end price gouging of the oil companies once and for all and move immediately to alternative fuel sources, like it or not.

That's the plan that every represenative ought to be following, period whether democrat or republican.

And if they don't follow it, they're useless corporate lugnuts who are going to get a rude awakening and wakeup call. And they're going to be fired, by every last person here.

And you know fucking DAMN well what the real plan is: END the useless, bloody idiotic wars in Iraq and elsewhere and install alternative energy policy, boycott EXXON-Mobil oil from its path of destruction, and permanently setup a national health care plan that rewards every american in house by deleting and ripping up the tax cuts.

Take away from the rich have mores and their useless oil buddies, force them to backpedal and END the price gouging of their insurance and medical companies once and for all. END their corporate tax loopholes and have that pay for the health care, lifestyle, and END the bankruptcy welfare programs for Credit Card companies which feeds right back into the Oil Industry.

You heard me right you lilly livered freeper hack.....END the ridiculous game once and for all. That's what the plan is, and then after EVERYTHING is completed and each crook is in jail we'll deal with osama bin laden and the WAR CRIMES.

Richie, you are wasting valuable time. You need to sign up and fight, being the good supporter of an illegal war that you are...I am almost certain they would accept you now that they have increased the age limit...

Bush, Brown, and Chertoff were all advised by the director of the national hurricane center, of the destructive nature of this storm, including the breech of the levees. Bush signed an order for federal emergency assistance on august 26'th at the request of the governor of Luisiana. They all lied when they said they did not think the levees would be breached. They not only lied but I think this is probably grounds for criminal prosecution.

Responsibility, accountability, morality, and conscience have all fled the Blighthouse - only desolation, destruction, and despair are roaming the halls - but according to the occupants - IT's ALL GOOD!
Who would have thought that it could have gotten this bad? The MSM and 99% of our representatives are 100% complicit for they also agree: IT's ALL GOOD! When it's ALL GOOD, it's easy to sleep at night. It's up to us, we have to shout, scream, and yell that IT's NOT GOOD and it is getting WORST. The entire Bush Regime has to go, but the effort to do this MUST BE RELENTLESS. Press on!

George Bush's Prayer-recited each evening in the Blighthouse:

I lie, because you let me.
I steal, because you let me.
I kill, because you let me.
I take away your rights, because you let me.
I ignore your needs and mock your anquish, because you let me.
I manipulate the main stream media, because you let me.
I don't have to work hard at this, because you make it so easy.
Please don't stop me, this is way too much fun!
