is more afraid that if we don't buckle under to U.S. pressure in either increasing spending on our military, or allowing your agencies in, will
suffer from a terrorist attack. The difference being that we think it would come from your government. Hasn't anyone in the States clued in yet that
the attack was, at least in part, co-ordinated by your intelligence agencies (Gov. or private).
Canadians and Europeans seem to have a pretty good grip on it and aren't so willing to 'jump the gun'. Look at the NY Times recently, Saudi's not
helping efforts in US war on terrorism as much as they could (next is the war on the Saudi's, Hell, they have oil too), not to mention, Police
under-staffed, that's why they couldn't find the Wash. sniper (we need a bigger budget and more laws that allow us to impinge on civil liberties).
People, it's all coming down the pipes. You can hear it, read it, see it, and comprehend it if you just turn off that silly 'it'll never happen
Sure, you may disagree, but the media is different here, and stories about American politics aren't tainted by excuses and American propaganda, they
just report the results of legislation passed that crushes your rights.
It is a simple, undeniable fact that one person, who can't even string a comprehensible thought into a sentence half the time, and has about as much
in common with the average American as he does with a Kalihari bushman, can, with a word, completely suspend your Civil Rights and eradicate your
Constitution. Even scarier is the fact that once he isn't in power, the next dude could do it, and if not him, then the next dude. Basically, you've
sold the protection of the future generations of your country down the river without having a clue what the dangers from within are that the future
may hold! What is that ole' Ben Franklin quote about liberty and security, and those who trade essential liberties for security deserve neither.
Living verifiable proof that history teaches nothing, and to keep it that way, make sure you write the history.
There is no marching in the streets, nobody claims that the government is working towards totalitarianism, nobody says 'Hey, I give a # about the
future, so I'm going to do something about it now, while I can.' Everyone is like Tyler says, sheep, happy to be sheep. It is a good analysis,
despite the borrowed analogy.
The key to which is understanding how sheep are kept.
In a pen. Protected by fences. Constant food. Protected by specially trained dogs, who also make sure no sheep go astray, and are good sheep (by that
I mean, putting the sheep that have the nerve to lead other sheep astray, in there place). Threatened by other dogs who aren't specially trained.
We think, man, the dogs have it easy, but in reality, the dog is under more constant scrutiny of the farmer. The sheep don't like the dogs, and,
imagine the world as being a better place without them, when, in reality, they would still be in a pen, kept there by the farmer. Ahhhh, FREEDOM. I
can go anywhere in the pen I want as long as I don't go where I'm not supposed to. I can eat as much grass as I like. I hate the dogs, all dogs. Why
can't the sheep see the farmer for what he is???
Rave, rant, rant, rave, rave, rant!!!! It's so simple!! Grrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhh!! I'm so damn frustrated with the masses!!
