I have to make a correction... I meant to say anything dealing with division of ideas, morals, and values into political parties.

Did you know that J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were good friends? Tolkien was known to accuse C.S. Lewis of writing too hastily. And C.S. Lewis would tell Tolkien he took too much time to get things written.

There were 5 of them... called the inksters. All of them would get together and read to each other pieces of literature they were currently working on. I can't remember who the other 3 were.

C.S. Lewis had to prod Tolkien along to do the work of finalizing his story, getting a publisher and getting it out to the market.

So we may have C.S. Lewis to thank for badgering Tolkien about this.

I'm not saying Tolkien was lazy... maybe that part of the job is not the most fun thing to do for some writers. But I think more probable is that he was a perfectionist and didn't want to put it out until he was convinced it was perfect, which might have never happened without C.S. Lewis as his friend.

Yup... it's ugly. I'm aware of all the corruption... I can't stand seeing

Tom DeLay's face on TV, and I can't tell which has been more annoying and

tiring... listening to the latest OJ saga, or what's going on with Foley

scandal.

It's embarrassing as an American. (The Halliburton deal really gets me.

That's our money their wasting... more than $1 billion so far... money we go

to work for every day. The incompetence of our elected officials is

unbelievable.)

So... ok... this is the last thing I have to say about the deal... I

promise, because I can hardly take any more of it.

I'm not commenting about one party or another. They all suck ass in my

opinion.

I don't care about party affiliation anymore. I don't care about

republicans, democrats, independents, or anything dealing with division of

ideas, morals, and values.

Just my personal view about what one guy said... how shockingly stupid of a

thing that was said, and all the negativity in general going on in

Washington. It makes no difference to me what party Kerry affiliates with.

I've lost respect for the whole lot of them.

Our "leaders" in Washington can't get along with each other, even amongst

their own parties. They simply can not do it. They refuse to do it.

And I'm tired of it. But it's my own fault for listening to too much news,

as I'm trying to pay attention to this election cycle.

I shouldn't have said anything. It was just so bizarre when I got home and

saw this on the news. But that's it for me, because it's only spreading

more negativity. That's why I hardly talk about this stuff anyway.

That said, I really do wish God would pay Capitol Hill a visit and give em'

all a swift kick in the ass.

Now I have some Dead tunes to burn to CD... which is a much better use of

time.

The zealous right wingers out there implying, or outright stating, that these recent scandals involving the republican party are some kind of leftist media conspiracy to affect the upcoming elections aren't fooling anyone but others such as yourselves, who will clearly never vote anything but republican, no matter what the republicans in office do. I notice you don't question the validity of these reports. And what of the other republican scandals from well before the elections? You know like the ones involving Jack Abramoff, Tom Delay, Duke Cunningham, Bob Ney, etc., etc., etc. Not to mention an administration which continually lied to the nation and the whole world about aluminum tubes from Afica and WMD's in Iraq to start an unjust war resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqis and Americans; and a spineless congress that rubber stamps whatever the administration wants. And they want to condemn the entire Democratic Party for a verbal faux pas by John Kerry? Please. Be it months before the election, during the election or after the election the republicans in charge are scumbags who are only in it for themselves and just fill peoples' heads with propaganda to try to convince them otherwise.

There has been much talk about the Republican "base" of Evangelical voters and Christian conservatives banding their flocks together to keep Republicans in power this election. However, many of them are starting to wake up to the fact that they are being used on a grand scale. And yet there are still those who are "asleep at the pew" and ready to vote Republican on baseless moral grounds. I have a question I would love to ask of all the religious wingnuts. If their mythology is true and Jesus decided to come back tomorrow, how do they think George W. Bush, his demonic administration, and Republican enablers in Congress would react? A) Would they allow a peace loving, liberal, hippie to make peace on Earth and all men and women to be equal? OR B)Go to war with God to maintain their power, control, and fortunes? They know the answer would be (B)! So my next question would be... Doesn't that make him the Antichrist according to their mythology??? No wonder they call it a "flock!" It's hard for a president to convince anyone he is pro-life when it comes to banning stem cell research while thousands are being sent to their deaths in Iraq. It is also ironic that the very party that puts forth a homophobic agenda turns out to be full of closeted homosexuals and pedophiles. It's not what you say, it's what you do. For real Christians and people of faith the mantra for the next election cycles should be, "It's the hypocrisy stupid!" We have all heard the acronym, "WWJD - What would Jesus Do," but a more suitable acronym in this age of hypocrisy would be, "WWTDTJ - What would They Do to Jesus!"
