Picture of the Day

Tell me, what are your true feelings towards Big Brother?'

'I hate him.'

'You hate him. Good. Then the time has come for you to take the last step. You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him.'

(1984 Part III - Chapter 4 from the incredibly useful Literature Network.)

(Picture - Bush speaking Thursday at the National Conference on Faith Based Intiatives.)


  • I'm reminded of Apple's famous 1984 ad.

  • Exactly. The same thing that made that ad so effective is the same thing that made this creepy to me.

    Now all we need is a guy with a throwing hammer.

  • I wonder how many times he invoked '911' to this group. Then everyone got all somber and silent. How the hell did these people hijack the country?

  • I dunno about 9-11 but he talked alot about Katrina.

    The headline out of this event is that he's seeking greater pre funding for religious aid groups so that they can better be able to cope with disasters. He's requesting 4 Billion to church groups.

  • Reminds me of the concert imagery in the movie "The Wall," where Geldof, as the drug-addicted rock star, whips an audience of groupies into a frenzy through song, urging them to kill gays, jews, blacks...
