The other line about W that I kept hearing that made me sick was, "He kept us safe."  Yeah, right.  Ask the people in New Orleans.

The unconstitutional UnPatriot Act "kept us safe" because nobody tried anything! 

I'm glad that I don't need to travel by air; I don't think I could tolerate the TSA searches and other intrusive procedures without getting snarky.  And arrested.

A tiny Nisei friend of mine ... in her 80s...diabetic...legally blind...was pulled out of line at O'Hare and given a thorugh search, luggage and body, a couple of years ago.  She was one of a group of Dodger fans on their way to a game in Denver.  Did those uneducated clowns actually think she was a potential hijacker? 

What really made me blow up when I heard about it was that she had already suffered enough injustice at the hands of the US gummint.  She spent her teen years in Manzanar during WW2.  Yes.

Disgusting.

I don't believe even a mildly intelligent terrorist group would ever try the same "trick" twice, anyway.

People...sheeple...just. Don't. THINK!

I felt the same way when W talked about our enemies.  It is sickening yet people eat it up.

I just watched the intro to Part 1, and I'm not bragging, but I have known almost since 9-11-2001 that "International Terrorism" was a political invention.  As was most of the hysteria during the "Cold War."

And I said so, but nobody listened to me, or believed me.

Keeping America in a constant state of panic and false ostentations patriotism was the only way Prez Cheney and his stumblebum talking puppet, "W," could get re-elected in 2004.  (And while we were distracted, their cronies in congress quietly altered the laws that used to keep Wall St. in line.) Among other things.

I mean, really.  Every time I heard W say that our "enemies" hated America "because of our freedoms," I wanted to throw something ... or throw up.

I have to watch that entire documentary, but not this morning.  Busy-busy-busy.

I also just latched onto a reference to an excellent column in Forbes, 2-24-2011 by Rich Karlgaard: "Wealth and Fitness Secret."  Gotta see if I can find that online.

I've recently watched an interesting, relatively multi-sided, documentary on the role neocons played in the rise of fundamentalist Christians and Muslims called "the Power of Nightmares". It shows a group of leading neocons developed tactics using both these religions to further neocon political ends. Many neocons were interviewed in the film, which made it quite interesting.

Yes, It did....when the knuckle-draggers began to get organized. They copied the methods of the civil rights movement...because they worked.

They 'screamed' it then, they 'scream' it now, but in between there was a long period of near shut-up-ness :)

The brand of fundamentalism we're seeing today began in the 1970s.
