••can ye pass the acid test?••

ye who enter here be afraid, but do what ye must -- to defeat your fear ye must defy it.

& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

fluct again

bush followed up his deficit-cutting promises at the economic club of washington by returning to his personal responsibility theme, specifically medical "savings accounts."

his argument is that his proposal will give healthcare "consumers" the "freedom" to make their own choices about how to spend their health dollars.

oh! right! that's just what i need when i've just been told i have a serious condition that needs immediate treatment. not only do i have to figure out if what the doctors say is what i really need, but i also have to think about whether my account still has enough dough to pay for it, or if i'm going to have to go into debt for who knows how long.

all this stuff might seem really trivial to a guy who's always had his rich daddy's rich friends come to his rescue and never known a bigger problem than a ring breaking off a beer can before the top popped open, but to 'most everybody i know, "personal responsibility" is just a heartless excuse for governmental irresponsibility!
