Some thought-provoking, scary stuff from Carol Schiffler at YellowTimes.com:
"If you are reading this, it is because you are connected to the internet, one of the last bastions of free speech in this bogus war.
"Now if you are one of those unfortunate souls who are still getting the majority of your news from a Clear Channel radio station, let me clarify:
"The federal government is out of control. It is careening madly, like Buzz Lightyear gone bad, to Infinite Tyranny and beyond. If you think you still have rights, it is probably because you have not tried to exercise them recently. You have not yet uttered heresies like, 'Hey, wouldn't it be swell if Congress actually declared war on Iraq before we invaded it?' or 'Hang on just one second there Mister Ashcroft. I live in a sovereign state, remember?' or 'Say, shouldn't Dick Cheney be accountable for his actions?'
"George Bush now exercises absolute control over every man, woman, and child in this country. Right now; not at some unspecified time in the future when 'this thing' happens or 'that thing' happens. We hit that point flying when the PATRIOT Act passed."
