Musings from George


Scare-itocracy

Newsweek had an article about how the FBI and Homeland Security issued a new alert, warning that unnamed scary people were going to buy school buses and create harm to our children. When pushed, no one at those two brain trusts could defend the warning — there is no specific intelligence indicating that a threat has been made, and no evidence anyone has been doing anything untoward. They hypothesize that their scaremongers (“red cells”) may have imagined this as a good terrorist threat.

Hence we have Bush’s administration, which should legitimately have included the year 1984 in tribute to Orwell. Create terrible threats, terrify the populace, and then steal their rights and expand government authority and intrusion. Justify torture, and spying on your citizenry. Bomb anyone who rattles a saber in a foreign land, even if their scabbard is empty. Belittle your poor partners (France, Russia), embrace your lapdogs (the coalition of the coerced).

Heck of a job, Brownie.

Rumsfeld is the right man for the job.

Harriet Miers is the right person, at the right time, for the Supreme Court (oops, what about those prosecutors she massacred for not being political enough…)

Alberto Gonzales, Supreme Court justice in waiting, with so much blood on his hands that even Bush can’t keep a straight face any more.

Cheney…what can you say? Does he actually make the same sound Darth Vader does when he breathes? Jon Stewart does Cheney better than Cheney does….

Welcome to the Brave New World — a Scare-itocracy, where we will frighten you into surrendering your rights and privileges.
