You must be on some medication that is making you very paranoid . . . oh yeah, that's 70% of the people in this country. Can't you see that Bush and Bin Laden go hand-in-hand. With the two of them pushing nationalist ambitions based on paranoia and misinformation, and with an ocean of lobotimized droids to follow their rhetoric, the two can manipulate their audiences to follow their garbage.

McCarthyism and Jihadists are convenient equivalents. Bin Laden does not have to be a genious to manipulate the American people, he just needs Bush to continue to make us paranoid, while both of them fatten the coffers of their families and their cronies.

Don't you get it? People that promote war and point out impotent enemies are fooling the masses for their own gain. All extremists, whether they be war monger Republicans who ignore domestic affairs, or Communists who create a "revolution" against the evil enemy, or jihadists who resist infidels, they're all manipulaters who have no regard for their own peole or mankind in general.
