The 9/11 attack happened while I was driving to work. I wasn't listening to the radio, so I had no idea. When I got to work, the other employees
were huddled around a radio, and somebody called me over and I listened to the reports.
I remember standing there then, frightened. I wasn't frightened about what the "terrorists" might do next-- I was frightened about what our
government would do in response. I was certain, even then, that those who covet power above all else would use it as an excuse to take a huge step
toward bringing about the police state that they've longed for for oh so long.
That's one time that I would've much rather been wrong than right, but, sadly, I was right.
There's no way to really express the sadness and bitterness that this makes me feel. Once upon a time, we had the greatest nation to have ever
existed on this earth, and we allowed scheming, manipulative, power-hungry, mendacious scum to take it away from us. Hell-- we didn't just
allow them-- we elected them, and at least the more shortsighted, self-involved and plainly ignorant among us actually ASKED them to do it.
It's all downhill from here. The liars and the cheats and the thieves have won, and every decent ordinary person who simply wants to live a peaceful
life has lost.
The only slim, tiny, barely glinting hope that we have is that Congress will vote this bill down, but the powers-that-be long ago took control of who
might or might not even run for Congress, and that control is not for nothing. Congress will pass this bill, because that's what they're meant to
do. The Democrats will posture, but they won't stop it, because they honestly don't want to. They only want to get the Republicans out of office
so that they can be the ones with control of this newly wrought power.
This is the blackest day of my entire lifetime in this country, and it's doubly sad that it will remain so only until the day this bill is actually
passed. And I suspect that there will be many more days that much worse over time...
It's time for all of us to kiss America goodbye. It was a noble experiment, but that's over now. We escaped from tyranny only to create our own
See you all in the gulag...
