    It's not really propaganda although it is inaccurate. George III was seriously and permanently nuts while GWB is suffering from a temporary disability brought on by too much religion and no booze.

    Have you ever known a dry, rabid Christian who did not generally seem a mad man? Or woman.

    My mother changed from C of E to SDA when I was 9 yrs. She wasn't mad. She was, um, my mother.

    How dare you talk about her that way?!

    I'm not. Perhaps it was a sacrifice on her part in an effort to civilize one of her sons.

    I think the term is "dry drunk"!

    So's the actuality!

    A "dry drunk," according to AA, is an alcoholic who has not completed the program of personal assessment and amends-making, etc. crucial to recovery. He or she may not drink, but the underlying obsessive behavior remains. Such a person merely exchanges one form of mania for another; fundamentalist religion for Jack Daniels, for instance.

    An interesting statement from an organization that exchanges religion for Jack Daniels.

    Fair enough!

    I personally think "addictive personalities" should be kept away from sharp tools - and government power!

    Do you suggest that a rational individual would prefer religion Jack Daniels?

    "Do you suggest that a rational individual would prefer religion Jack Daniels? "

    Nope - because rationality is trumped in both cases by emotional urges!

    How about compulsive buying of cars, and associated behaviours?

    And pedantry. Like abhorrence of the word 'behaviours', as commonly used these days.

    That might be the case but I have found booze to be a lot more fun than religion.

    Careful. You are discriminating against females when taking about motorcycles. It's a predominantly male behaviour, this obsession with old machinery. Men sometimes gather 'round and exlude women.

    Don't tell them about the handshake, neither.

    It works better if you use a monotone delivery.

    OTOH if their cars need work, they come to me for advice.

    I might know nothing, but I can act well...

    Typical of an ex-fighter pilot.

    I'd be happier when the US remains independently well armed and guided by better leaders.

    You never really got the idea of a good Executive Branch, did you?
