George Bush believes the end times will never come!!!

Based largely on George Bush’s disdain for preserving the environment, I have believed that George Bush thought the world will end in the not so distant future. This would also fit with the belief system of some of his most ardent Far Right Christian base, many of whom believe that the apocalypse as promised in the Bible will come in the next few generations.

George Bush’s Middle Eastern policies also might lead an outside observer to think that his stance with Israel was based on putting the Jewish people into the cross hairs for the beginning of the apocalypse (during which the Jewish people would all perish of course, not being Christians themselves). This is based on some people’s beliefs that Israel occupying the ancient Jewish Kingdom would fulfill certain prophecies. Not to mention that avoiding a meaningful peace between Jews and Palestinian’s increases the chance of a war taking place at the hills of Megiddo (also known as Armageddon).

The chatter in some circles about George Bush being chosen by God (sometimes mentioned even by George himself) also leads one to believe his decisions are based on a Christian biblical world view, which would involve the eventual second coming of Christ and the end of the world as we know it.

But, I WAS WRONG.

George Bush just revealed that he thinks that the world and the American Government will continue just the way it is, forever and ever. He has recently started a public campaign against social security based on just this premise.

“….the $10 trillion figure (as the cost of social security) is the closest you can get to pulling a number out of the air. Make that the ether. Starting last year, as the groundwork was being set for the emerging debate, the Social Security trustees took the liberty of projecting the system’s solvency over infinity, rather than sticking to the traditional 75-year time horizon. That world-without-end assumption generates the scary $10 trillion estimate, and with it, Mr. Bush’s putative rationale for dismantling Social Security in favor of a system centered on private savings accounts.” From: The Social Security Fear Factor

So George Bush is making one of his lynch pins of domestic policy the enshrinement into the countries financial fabric the fact that the world will continue to infinity in such a condition that Social Security will be needed just as it is. Some of George Bush’s base religious supporters may believe that at some point Jesus would return and start taking care of at least the righteous portion of senior citizens. George doesn’t share that belief.

It’s less surprising that George Bush doesn’t believe in the scientific viewpoint that the sun will eventually burn out billions of years from now and the world as we know it will have to be abandoned (hopefully for other star systems). We know George doesn’t do science.

But I am frankly shocked that George Bush doesn’t believe in the Bible’s book of Revelations and its prediction of the end of the world. I think this will come as a surprise to many of his supporters as well…

    George Bush is a devil. George Bush will be revealed to be the worst President in history. I can’t for the life of me figure out how the American people elected him, but they did.

    So, fair is fair… we got him for four more wars. Did I say wars? I meant wars. No, years. Nope, turns out I did mean wars. Fuck this President. Shit, I can’t say that can I? Oh well, what’s done is done.

    Where did you get the idea that GWB was a Neocon? He’s a political opportunist and all the silliness you cite about his fundamentalism is just part of the laughable garbage liberals try to pin on him with no real evidence behind it. It’s all spite and prejudice born out of irrational hatred, but based on bigotry and not on fact.

    Okay…

    “History? We don’t know. WE’LL ALL BE DEAD.” — Bush answers Bob Woodward when asked how history would judge his invasion of Iraq

    “…The course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them.
    — George W. Bush, 9/20/01

    “This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while.” — Bush, 9/21/01

    “We come before God to pray for the missing and the dead, and for those who loved them…. Our purpose as a nation is firm, yet our wounds as a people are recent and unhealed and lead us to pray…. This world He created is of moral design. Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time. Goodness, remembrance, and love have no end, and the Lord of life holds all who die and all who mourn…. *Neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities, nor powers nor things present nor things to come nor height nor depth can separate us from God’s love.” — Bush, 9/14

    *romans 8:38

    “Through my Faith-Based and Community Initiative, my Administration continues to encourage the essential work of faith-based and community organizations. Governments can and should support effective social services, including those provided by religious people and organizations. When government gives that support, it is important that faith-based institutions not be forced to change their religious character.” –Bush, 1/16/04

    NOTE: “faith-based” is the Right’s favorite euphemism/smoke-screen for “Christianity”

    “We waited for Congress to act. They couldn’t act on the issue. So I just went ahead and signed an executive order which will unleash — [applause] — which says the federal agencies will not discriminate against faith-based programs. They ought to welcome the *armies of compassion as opposed to turning them away.” — Bush, 7/16/03

    *NOTE: “Armies of compassion” is a frightening mixed metaphor that has historically been a euphemism for “vindictive persecution” — (see witch hunts, Spanish Inquisition, Vietnam, et al for more.)

    God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did…”
    — George W. Bush, according to Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, 6/27/03

    “It is fitting that we have a National Prayer Breakfast. It is the right thing to do, because this is a nation of prayer. I know, from firsthand knowledge, that this is a nation of prayer.” — Bush,2/6/03

    “God’s signs are not always the ones we look for. We learn in tragedy that his purposes are not always our own. Yet the prayers of private suffering, whether in our homes or in this great cathedral, are known and heard, and understood.
    There are prayers that help us last through the day, or endure the night. There are prayers of friends and strangers, that give us strength for the journey. And there are prayers that yield our will to a will greater than our own….
    On this National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, we ask almighty God to watch over our nation, and grant us patience and resolve in all that is to come. We pray that He will comfort and console those who now walk in sorrow. We thank Him for each life we now must mourn, and the promise of a life to come.” — Bush, 9/14/01

    “I strongly support the faith-based initiative that we’re proposing, because I don’t believe it violates the line between the separation of church and state…” –Bush 2/28/01

    “…I will work to build a single nation of justice and opportunity. I know this is in our reach because we are guided by a power larger than ourselves who creates us equal in His image…

    I ask Americans to bow our heads in humility before our Heavenly Father, a God who calls us not to judge our neighbors, but to love them, to ask His guidance upon our nation and its leaders in every level of government.” –Bush, 1/20/01

    “Our priorities is [sic] our faith.” –Bush, 10/10/00

    “We will allow private and religious groups to compete to provide services in every federal, state and local social program.” —Bush

    “I’ve heard the call. I believe God wants me to run for president.” — quoted from A. Lathan, George Magazine, 9/00

    “Therefore, I, George W. Bush, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim June 10, 2000, Jesus Day in Texas…” –Bush declaring one of his favorite ad hoc “holidays” in Texas

    BTW:

    Hitler was a Christian, too.

    …all the silliness you cite about his fundamentalism is just part of the laughable garbage liberals try to pin on him with no real evidence behind it.

    Actually, I thought the point of this post is that his fundamentalism is part of the laughable garbage his conservative supporters try to pin on him.

    But “political opportunist”, that sounds about right to me. Although I think that phrase might be redundant.

    I know for sure this is a nation of breakfast – close.

    “History? We don’t know. WE’LL ALL BE DEAD.” — Bush answers Bob Woodward when asked how history would judge his invasion of Iraq

    ummm… Shark? I don’t know about you, but I figure in 150 years I and everyone I know is going to be dead. I really don’t think this quote has anything to do with the end of the world…. Yeah, maybe he hasn’t caught up with the Information Age, that to the Gen X anything that happened more than 10 years ago is ‘history’ but that’s about it…

    Just dial back the supposition a little and think about these things, people.

    Ok, so other than hammering on the Bush, this threat has a point of…. what?
