Couldn't help but comment on your site today. Thanks for the Dean quote. I heard him explain his thesis about "authoritarian followers" at the ACLU conference earlier. The roughly 30% of U.S. citizens who fit this description will like those travel cards that are supposed to be "more secure and uniform." They will not mind being included, as I surely do, in those vast national databases.Regarding the anxiety level, that is why I blog. I would be pacing and grinding my teeth otherwise, B. I am glad you blog, too! How's your level?
anxiety level? depends on whether or not i keep blogging i guess- now that the government is officially going to crack down on bloggers. exasperation, frustration and anger levels are off the charts though. more at the 30% who follow than the yahoos at the top. i expect that of them- they are soulless and conscienceless afterall. the 30% who continue to give their last dime to the likes of pat robertson and his ilk- and the nra and various other repub campaigns when they are actually harmed by the policies- that's where i can't fathom it. sounds like a personality disorder for sure to me. no miracle drug for stupidity though.
I just can't imagine the wild and crazy Americans who are soooo independent in what they do and say being lassoed in - I mean they would have to have a pretty big rope to tie up millions of people. I dunno - I think it's more bluster than actual action.
Thank you so much for highlighting the terrible campaign abuses we're facing here in California.I suspect that this is not the first time something like this has happened...nor will it be the last.
