Bush Lying Machine, a political statement in
automata, by Andrew A. LaTorre
up with the constant barrage of lies coming
from President Bush, and the media's non-attention
to the fact that he lies so much, I did what
I could to bring this to the attention of my
fellow Americans. As a former design engineer
and professor of Industrial Technology, I used
my life-learned skills to make a political statement.
The following is what is written on the automata:
President is Lying!
Bush Lies, Who Dies?
Is Lying a new Christian Value?
Or is it a "Compassionate" Conservative means
instructions are two fold. If you are rich then
you can use your secret key and pay no tax.
All others must insert a quarter into the coin
slot to start the machine.
lying disk starts its revolution displaying
about thirty lies that President Bush stated.

And then his nose gets bigger and bigger. At
the same time the lies are shown, weird noises
emanate from the machine as the lies continue.
is a brass knob on the top of the machine which
can be pressed to stop the lies so they can
be studied. When pressed, the wheel stops. At
the same time a sign pops up stating, "For a
better way to stop the lying, VOTE Bush out
of office Novemberí 04."
addition to all that, in order to keep up with
future lies, there is a container on the side
for the continuing lies to be deposited.
machine runs on 120v. and takes about 10 watts
of power. It takes about 60 seconds for the
disk to turn its full revolution. This is not
any way near the time needed to read the lies.
I am under the opinion that if one lies so much
and so fast then the populace becomes totally
confused and finally either trusts everything
you say or just gives up and accepts their fate.
will not become confused nor will I accept my
fate at the hands of a lying President.
