The voice in my head is telling me to kill 32,000 people
Oh, man,I'm just terribly embarrassed to post this.
First of all, it's stale, from October.
I didn't miss it the first time around. Oh, no. It jumped right out at me.
It sort of stunned me. I didn't really know what to do. I was hoping it was a hallucination and would go away.
Look, I mean, a lot of Vleeptron's readers aren't Americans. So like, if I posted this, I was telling everybody on Earth that my President is a loony.
Well, it still hasn't gone away. And subsequent developments this week have sort of confirmed that my President is a loony.
So anyway, here it is. Make of it what you wish.
Oh. Maybe he was just making a Metaphor. You know, like, God personally isn't really telling me what to do, but I have these faith-based moral ideas, and so I'll make them into a Metaphor -- my Belief in God is shaping the ideas in my heart.
I dunno. What do you think? One problem with that theory is that he's also Dumb As Rocks and doesn't know what a Metaphor is, or how to spell it.

God told me to invade Iraq,
Bush tells Palestinian ministers
President George W Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq -- and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.
In Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs, a major three-part series on BBC TWO (at 9.00pm on Monday 10, Monday 17 and Monday 24 October), Abu Mazen, Palestinian Prime Minister, and Nabil Shaath, his Foreign Minister, describe their first meeting with President Bush in June 2003.
Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us:
'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"
Abu Mazen was at the same meeting and recounts how President Bush told him: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."
The series charts the attempts to bring peace to the Middle East, from President Bill Clinton's peace talks in 1999/2000 to Israel's withdrawal from Gaza last August.
Norma Percy, series producer of The 50 Years War (1998) returns, with producers Mark Anderson and Dan Edge, to tell the inside story of another seven years of crisis.
Presidents and Prime Ministers, their generals and ministers tell what happened behind closed doors as peace talks failed and the intifada exploded.

There's more chat from Heaven. God keeps talking to the guy and telling him what to do.
from a Haaretz (big Israeli newspaper) story by Arnon Regular, off a search on the Haaretz site ... Vleeptron is not absolutely certain of the original date of the story, but it could be Saturday 17 December 05.
According to Abbas, immediately thereafter Bush said: "God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them."
