  •  He is bringing tyranny (4.00)
    not only elsewhere but here. He is responsible for the tyrannical direction of our own government because he is in charge. George Bush is a tyrant fronting for other tyrants.
    •  asdf (4.00)
      I had to stop for a moment when I read the part of the speech where he says that we will learn the lesson of history and not repeat the mistakes of previous generations by "sacrificing freedom in the vain pursuit of stability." Huh?  What is the Patriot Act if not the very same sacrificing of freedom in the vain pursuit of stability?

      •  That was the part that prompted (none)
        my remark about the "Galaxy Nuftlon." He sounds like he's off his meds.

        However, reading your comment made me think about it again.

        I think he is saying that the Cold War strategy of containment was wrong and therefore we more or less have to have a War on Tyranny.

        I hope the War on Tyranny is recursive.

        •  Ah . . . (none)
          Your point makes good sense and certainly clarified the meaning of Bush's rhetoric in this case.

          As for the war on tyranny being recursive, very well said! I have to admit that I had to look it up. Thanks to Wikipedia, I get it.

          This is the crux of the definition: "Newcomers to recursion are often bewildered by its apparent circularity, until they learn to appreciate that a termination condition is key."

          •  Hey thanks. I know about recursion (none)
            I took a couple of software programming courses. (I am not a programmer. I would be an absolutely horrible programmer.)
