Intermission

Another one of those freebie confusion of ideas stories has fallen in my lap. Mayan Priests in Guatamala are going to hold a purification ritual at the "sacred" site of Iximche after President Bush's visit there (story here).

According to the article, "Juan Tiney, the director of a Mayan nongovernmental organization... said the "spirit guides of the Mayan community" decided it would be necessary to cleanse the sacred site of "bad spirits" after Bush's visit so that their ancestors could rest in peace. "

Let that sink in.

The Mayan Priests, whose ancestors used to practice human sacrifice on this "sacred" site, are attempting to exorcise the Bush cooties after he leaves. The human sacrifices, by the way, were usually captives from inter-tribal warfare, and so not the inhabitants of this "sacred" site. The Preists will use the usual incantations, incense, and candles. They get that from the Spanish Conquistadores that subjugated their venerable ancestors by destroying their society and slaughtering at will. You can't make this shit up! I think they would be better served by a 55-gallon drum of Lysol.

Why is George headin' down the Cocahaana Highway anyway?
Maybe he loved Apocalypto?
Or maybe since he knows that his gig is up he is trying to 'line up' some sweet connections...I seem to recall he had a nose for trouble back in the day.
The conquistadors killed off 20 million with their germs...that's something that you never forget when the Gringos come a knockin'.

My favorite south american cluster fuck is in bolivia - a country that is 90% "Catholic" and is the state religion - they ritually bribe the Virgin Mary with play money.

Yea, ol' George W is up to no good - you can be assured of that.

I linked you to my blogroll. ;)

And -- yeah! Isn't that great! I'm not a fan of religion, save academically, but . . . well, I think everywhere needs a good purification after Bush has been by. ;)

True. That's why they call it Montesuma's Revenge. Those good Catholics were responsible for introducing syphilis to the New World too. Shame on them. They should never have shown the natives how to build a toilet seat. ;-)

Bolivia is about the most scewed-up as a country can get, but there are a whole host of countries in a close race for second place now that Afghanistan has been temporarily disqualified. It doesn't matter what continent you are on, where there's ignorance and assholes to take advantage of it, everything starts to smell like a dirty urinal.

I can just see the themed-slot machines paying off out of the mouth of Ulmec.

I prefer something a little easier on the skin, like Physoderm. You aren't into Latex, are you? ;-)

chris:

Nice to meet you. I will add you to my blogroll as well. My first impression of your blog was, "Wow, how did I miss this one 'till now?"
