Well, I was surfin blogspot and came upon this site, and she makes a very good point. Many of you might have seen the photo of Bush with the Prince of Saudia Arabia literally "holding hands" on Leno. Okay I bring this up because Laura Bush said, "...freedom, especially freedom for women, is more than the absence of oppression. It's the right to speak and vote and worship freely. Human rights requires the rights of women." Okay I agree with her so far but, the only place in the Middle East where women can't vote is, (drumroll please...) Saudia Arabia!
Now many of you may have heard of Prof. Harry Frankfurts' book "On Bullshit" , as he notes, bullshit is not exactly lying, and bullshit remains bullshit whether it's true or false. The difference lies in the bullshitter's complete disregard for whether what he's saying corresponds to facts in the physical world: he "does not reject the authority of the truth, as the liar does, and oppose himself to it. He pays no attention to it at all. By virtue of this, bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are." So basically what Laura Bush was saying is bullshit, and her visit is nothing more but trying to change America's image in the world.
