Quotes of the Morning: Legislating Idiocy

“Ok.. To bring you up to speed. Remember the Republican juggernaut Katherine Harris in Florida? No? Maybe this will ring a bell.”

“Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris announced the certified totals Sunday night, after a deadline for counties to submit amended returns from hand recounts passed at 5 p.m. The final tally, according to Harris, was 2,912,790 votes for Bush; 2,912,253 for Gore.
‘Accordingly, on behalf of the state Election Canvassing Commission and in accordance with the laws of the state of Florida, I hereby declare Governor George W. Bush the winner of Florida's 25 electoral votes for the president of the United States,’ Harris said.
Florida's electoral votes would give Bush, the Republican candidate, one more than the 270 needed to win the presidency in the Electoral College. Gore, the Democratic candidate, holds a total of 255 electoral votes.
Earlier, Harris rejected a request for an extension by Palm Beach County, where the canvassing board said it had less than 1,000 ballots left in a manual recount. The outcomes in Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Nassau counties are expected to form the core of Gore's contest.

Lieberman said Harris' decision ignored hundreds of votes and thousands of hours of labor by election workers.
‘This evening, the secretary of state of Florida has decided to certify what by any reasonable standard is an incomplete and inaccurate count of the votes cast by the state of Florida,’ Lieberman said.”

“She’s running for the Senate. It isn’t going well. Perhaps some of the problem is the scandals..”

“U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris said she doesn't plan to drop out of the Senate race, a statement she made as rumors swirled Wednesday that she would end the campaign because of ties to a company involved in bribery scandal.

‘I am out there. We are running hard. We think we have great momentum,’ Harris said in a telephone interview. She is the only major Republican in the race to unseat Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson.
Speculation was heavy in Washington and Florida that her association with a defense contractor, MZM Inc., that prosecutors say illegally funneled thousands of dollars to her 2004 House campaign would force her out of the race. Harris has said she didn't knowingly do anything wrong.”
-Associated Press, March 8, 2006

“And part of the problem might be her utter cluelessness..”

“Just back from Iraq, US Representative Katherine Harris brought her Senate campaign to Pensacola, an area of the state that's dominated by the military.

She told small groups that the United States is succeeding in the war and troops don't want to be brought home yet.”
-Associated Press, February 12, 2006

“And maybe part of the problems is her campaign turn over..”

“In just under three years, U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris has had four chiefs of staff, four district directors and four press secretaries.

Harris has had to replace key people on her staff every nine months, a rate of staff turnover that far exceeds most of those in Congress.
On average, members of Congress hold onto their high-level staff for four to five years.
Turnover isn't limited to Harris' congressional office, either. As she prepares to run against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, Harris has been hampered by turnover on her campaign staff. Her campaign manager quit last week, after just a few months on the job and not long after she lost a pollster and a campaign finance director earlier this year.
Coupled with bad poll numbers and her struggles to raise money, political watchers say the staff turnover adds to the appearance that her operations are in disarray.
But Harris said most of the employees have left because they've gone on to better jobs. If anything, the turnover shows her staff members are in high demand after gaining experience in a 'high-profile' office.”
-Herald Tribune, November 28, 2005

“But her largest problem seems to be her complete and utter inability to keep her mouth shut when she should.”

“U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris has lost another key staffer in the wake of a disastrous political rally last week.
Rhyan Metzler, who had been Harris' political director, is no longer with the campaign, according to Harris spokeswoman Jennifer Marks. Metzler is the staffer that is being blamed for embarrassing comments Harris made following a rally at Orlando Executive Airport.
Only 40 people showed up for the event -- a number that includes Harris staff and media -- and Harris blamed the paltry turnout in part on a last-minute location change. She said a tree fell on the hangar that the rally was scheduled to be in forcing her campaign to switch to another hangar.
Airport officials, however, said no trees had fallen and that Harris was in the hangar her campaign had originally booked.”
-Orlando Sentinel, August 21, 2006

“Still she seems to want to stay in the race, probably because God wants her there.”

“During an interview soon after on Fox News's ‘Hannity & Colmes,’ Ms. [Katherine] Harris made public her fresh resolve. ‘Let me just answer the burning question,’ she said. ‘I'm in this race. And I'm going to win.’ She pledged to spend up to $10 million of her own fortune to do so.
In private, Mr. Rollins recalls Ms. Harris saying God told her to stay in the race -- God wanted her to be a senator.”
-Wall Street Journal, May 10, 2006

“She might want to figure out which God that is though..”

“Florida's citrus crop contributes billions of dollars to the state's economy, so when that industry is threatened, anything that might help is considered. Back in 2001, when citrus canker was blighting the crop and threatening to reduce that vital source of revenue, an interesting — if not quite scientific — alternative was considered.
Katherine Harris, then Florida's secretary of state — and now a member of the U.S. House of Representatives — ordered a study in which, according to an article by Jim Stratton in the Orlando Sentinel, ‘researchers worked with a rabbi and a cardiologist to test ‘Celestial Drops,' promoted as a canker inhibitor because of its ‘improved fractal design,' ‘infinite levels of order,' and ‘high energy and low entropy.'’
The study determined that the product tested was, basically, water that had apparently been blessed according to the principles of Kabbalic mysticism, ‘chang[ing] its molecular structure and imbu[ing] it with supernatural healing powers.’"
-MSNBC, November 15, 2005

“You see, the ‘rabbi’ should be a tell-tale sign that Kabbala is a mystical branch of the Jewish faith. It is odd then that Katherine seems to have such low opinion of the Jewish people.”

“U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is ‘a lie’ and that God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country to be ‘a nation of secular laws.’
The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate also said that if Christians are not elected, politicians will ‘legislate sin,’ including abortion and gay marriage.
Harris made the comments in the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention, which interviewed political candidates and asked them about religion and their positions on issues. “
-Associated Press, August 27, 2006

“So Jewish people (or Hindu, or Muslim, or secular humanists) will ‘legislate sin’. I cannot express to you how well this line of logic goes over in Florida. Oh Katherine, do you have anything to say that will make this all sound ok?”

"Harris' campaign released a statement Saturday saying she had been ‘speaking to a Christian audience, addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government.’
The comments reflected 'her deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values,' the statement said, adding that Harris had previously supported pro-Israel legislation and legislation recognizing the Holocaust."
-Associated Press, August 26, 2006

“Thanks Katherine. That makes it all better.”

Hello Impious and all,

Hope this is not too off topic for you. It gets to the root of the problem of deluded and greedy politicians who seek to impose their own ignorance on millions of others. Because of our reliance on money, politics, and religion, we are teetering on the verge of world-wide disaster. Idiots like Ms. Harris could care less about everyone else as long as she gets her hands on wealth and power, even if it means pretending to serve the Creator to get it. It is long past time that people stand up for truth and justice and give these scoundrels their due.

Understanding the Fatal Flaws in Judeo-Christian-Islamic Prophecy

I pose to you and others that the context and meaning of these ancient texts have been lost on those confused by the assertions of religious leaders and founders. Ancient wisdom has been purposely recast and obfuscated into religion and mysticism. Consequently, the interpretations presented about the sources and meaning of these texts and the philosophy and cosmology of ancient Hebrew sages is completely wrong. Before you scoff and write me off, you should understand that I speak from personal experience...

Remember the saying that "the truth will set you (and others) free?" How does "opening one's eyes to the truth" relate to "making the blind see again" or "shining the light" or "illuminating a subject?" Notice the inherent symbolism associated with this supposed New Testament "miracle?"

Did you ever consider that Christianity is the False Prophet symbolized in the Apocalypse, that Rome (Vatican/Papacy) is the so-called anti-messiah, and Jesus Christ is the false messiah? I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that this is the true interpretation of pivotal prophecies long confounded by Christianity's founders and leaders. Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity.

As certain world leaders strive to instigate a fabricated "battle of Armageddon," it is vital to understand and spread the truth about these ancient texts to help bring about an end to such abominable evil. You can never expect philosophies based on lies and great error to lead to peace and harmony. How many more millennia of terrible proof is necessary before humanity finally gets a clue that most have been utterly deceived by the very concept of religion.

Without it, Bush, the Neo-Cons, and their cohorts could never have gained and retained political power by manipulating an already deluded and susceptible constituency. Likewise, their thinly veiled partners in crime, Bin Laden and his ilk, could never have succeeded in their roles in this centuries-old Vatican-led grand deception.

Have you ever heard of Machiavelli? What better way to hide the truth than to divide people among three related but divergent religions (or other strong delusions) that each obscure the truth while claiming that each is the truth?

Want to see the symbol for the tri-part endless loop and logic-trap that such a three-part Machiavellian delusion forms? Ever seen a Triquetra?

Now consider how money, religion, and politics are inseparable because of the inescapable trap (bottomless pit) they form...

We are all trapped by a web of deception formed by money, religion, and politics. The great evils that bedevil us all will never cease until humanity finally awakens, shakes off these strong delusions, and forges a new path to the future.

Here is Wisdom...
