If you have "no place to go," come here!

I'm having a bad feeling about today's 5:00 horror

What do you think it will be?

Don't know but I'm completely unprepared for a threat advisory color change.

You may be on to something. I actually hadn't thought about it til you made me. It's Friday long holiday weekend starting up, prefect time for a huge news dump.

Car bomb dissasembled in London, most of Europe with high threat warnings. Fourth of July weekend?

Yea, it's the perfect time for a plausible attempt to terrify this country.

On the other hand, it's the perfect time for an actual terrorist attck on this country as well. Especially a very soft target. Which actually does scare me. Terrorists know what that day means to us. They know we gather in large crowds in public places. They also know we shop.

Durnit, now you've got me scared! And I started this entry thinking what the government could do to scare me.

Seriously, raising the alert levels would get our minds off all the illegality seeping slowly from DC.

Have a nice holiday.

And besides, she wants to spend more time with her family.

IIRC, State's having a hard time getting people, and so is Justice, now. It's like the scum also rises, isn't it? Anyone with any integrity has already left, so we know precisely what to think of those who remain.

No authoritarians were tortured in the writing of this post.

Frackin brilliant. Last refuge of scoundrels and all.

Reminder from CIA predecessor, the OSS:

...never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

there'll be no 08 election at all. The way they operate, i don't think i'm being overanxious (and the media will willingly help them still too)

..is not outside the realm of possibility, but it is unlikely, even for Cheney. Such overt thuggishness makes keeping the peons in line about five hundred times harder. And it means they have to deal with all the problems they've caused, instead of dumping them in the lap of whatever Demo comes after.

A far more likely worry is that they'll start a war with Iran right after/defore the election, and leave the Demo with an even more impossible mess to clean up.
