Emails -



I keep a great number of emails in my inbox folder, and then, periodically go through and peruse, especially when I am in procrastination mode like now..

I come across this from my sons in 2004.  Chris sent the Bush one, and Jeff added Orwell.


"In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Thus, political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging, and sheer cloudy vagueness. Political language [is] designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable."

 

-- George Orwell, "Politics and the English Language," 1945.

 

 


 

"This is a person and followers who are trying to say we don't want democracy, as a matter of fact, we'll decide the course of democracy by the use of force, and that is the opposite of democracy."

 

-George W. Bush, in reference to Shiite cleric al-Sadr
