••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?)

let's talk

saw another con complaining about liberals on c-span. guys like him seem to have an easy time getting think tanks or con colleges to give them forums to flush their phobic detritus out across the cableways.

he said libs are moral relativists, which apparently means they have no morals at all.

he also said libs' compassion is worthless, because it amounts to no more than wanting government to do everything for poor helpless victims of disaster, &c, who he insisted aren't really helpless.

he attacked ted kennedy because we haven't heard about him giving away any of his fortune to good causes "like bill gates."

i don't recall the guy's name. unfortunately i'll probably remember his face. it's not pretty.

does anybody—i wish we had the word "anymind"—have any substantive ideas on what to do about the mass phobia and/or paranoia on the "right"?

we need to discuss this stuff. my head's not big enough to do it alone.

  1. Lol. Read Vertigo Comics. Some of their stuff where they take this paranoia and extrapolate from it to build their stories make for pretty scary comics. Like Visions 2020 for example.
