Carefull people....

Tread carefully as these quagmires appear to suck the life out of our country.

To me, this is worse than the 60's. We knew there were racial problems in the country, we knew that the Vietnam War was sucking the life blood of our "republic", we knew there was a great ecological crisis foaming on the beaches of the world.

But now....

The war against terrorism is the way world wars are fought these days. Proxy armies or terrorists, depending from which magic tube you gaze through, keep the tension of war percolating all the time, off in the corner so we all feel threatened.

Unbelievable malfeasance has been unleashed and we just let it plop all around, the bank crisis, the voting purges, the creepy concentration of lady parts and the threat of terror permeates everything...

These are interesting times, indeed....

2. You speak of the war on terror percolating all the time to keep us

in a threatening environment and yet I'm not afraid of the actual terrorists this war is aimed at. I am very much afraid of those who have taken outlandish policies in hand to protect us from such.

edit: spelling

5. A guy that worked for the Navy once told me......,

during the bush years, that what they want is perpetual wars and that the "believers" were so intrenched down in DC that it didn't matter who the next President was..the policy would continue. He, by the way, was no fan of bush.
I now believe him.

6. I think Orwell's "1984" is seen as a "how-to" guide for these people.

 

Perpetual War ... Doubleplusgood.
