A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on infinite, finite, devotion, pleasure, thorny, bush, and garden

He who ignores the infinite and is devoted to the finite abandons a pleasure-garden and seeks the thorny bush.

A Quote by Jim Hightower on bushco, u s, verizon, rebrand, bush, consumers, washington, government of the people, democratic values, and commercial

The Bushites' domination and transformation of the governing apparatus is so antithetical to our democratic values, yet so thorough, that we no longer have The Government of the People of the United States of America.

But, what the hell, I say we go all the way with it. I mean, what kind of name is "The Government of the People of the United States of America" anyway.  That's so yesterday. We could use some marketing savvy here, some twenty-first-century identity branding that can connect to the wired, hip, commercial culture that is "today."

Let's get with the times, people! You don't see phone companies, for example, sticking with stodgy old names like Bell Atlantic Telephone Corporation, do you? No--they become "Verizon." Now that's got some zip to it! (Alright, it's not really a word and no one can figure out what it is or what it's selling, and the company's stock price is down by half in the three years since the name change, but let's not fall into the trap of negativity here.)

So let's rebrand. Forget. The Government of the People of YadaYadaYada. Let's call it something consumers can remember, something that'll look good on Washington's marble walls, something punchy and true to the spirit of the Bush government. Let's call it: BUSHCO!

A Quote by George W. Bush on bush, kyoto, and treaty

First, we would not accept a treaty that would not have been ratified, nor a treaty that I thought made sense for the country.

A Quote by unknown on bush, freedom, and light bulb

Questions:  How many Bush - administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Answer:  None.   There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day.  Any report of its lack of incandescence is a delusional spin by the liberal media.  That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say about its going out undermines the lighting effect.  Why do you hate freedom?

A Quote by Avram Noam Chomsky on bush, terror, and apathy

It is only in folk tales, children's stories, and the journals of intellectual opinion that power is used wisely and well to destroy evil. The real world teaches very different lessons, and it takes willful and dedicated ignorance to fail to perceive them.

Noam Chomsky (1928 -)
