Not content to break the laws of civilization alone, the Bush administration is taking aim too at the very laws of nature. With its now signature hubris, George Bush and company have examined and found wanting the last few centuries of scientific thought. So they’ve decided to “fix” the facts to fit their flat world view.

Galileo and Darwin be damned, George and the gang have the skinny on the true nature of existence, and no child will be left behind this bandwagon. Intelligent Design is the new reality in America, and the Bush administration is determined to have it taught to the youth of America, right there beside evolution and physics.

Eric Blumrich is an artist, social commentator, and blogger. His site, uses flash animation to marry images, text and music that deliver dissent by the boatload. Eric Blumrich and coming to grips with George’s “Intelligent Design” and America’s new normal in the first half.

And, During last summer’s Republican National Convention in New York City, Canadian filmmaker, Stephen Marshall took his camera and crew to the streets to shoot scenes for his theatrical production, This Revolution. Like hundreds of others, the film crew soon found themselves arrested arbitrarily by heavy-handed law enforcers.

Stephen Marshall was recently at UVic screening This Revolution and he joined me to talk about the film. Stephen Marshall and This Revolution in the second half.

And, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that’s good to do in and around Victoria this week.

But first, Eric Blumrich and Bush-thought in the classroom.
