Passover Comes Late. Ten New Plagues, Bush-style.

A comparison of the plagues God inflicted upon the Egyptians and those George W. Bush inflicted upon prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

Hebrew Bible plagues
1. blood.
2. frogs.
3. lice.
4. beasts or flies.
5. disease on livestock.
6. boils.
7. burning hail.
8. locusts.
9. darkness.
10. death of the first-born.

Bush Torture Memo Plagues
1. attention grasp.
2. walling.
3. facial hold.
4. facial slap (insult slap).
5. cramped confinement
6. wall standing.
7. stress positions.
8. sleep deprivation.
9. insects placed in a confinement box.
10. the waterboard.

Read here for the grim blow-by-blow. Watch in slow motion as a proud nation debases itself out of fear.


Why does this stuff always come in tens?

The reason things come in 10's is the decimal system. If we had a more natural system, based on 6 or 60, things would be much easier. 60 is ever so much more divisible than 10. And think about it from the beer point of view. Who ever heard of a 10 pack? No, it's 6, 12, 24, or 30 packs. All neatly contained in the pure number 60. If we had that system maybe there only would have been 6 plagues, or 6 forms of torture. Boggles the mind, it does. - Uhl
