Miles O'Brien/CNN: "Welcome back to the NEW NORMAL"
And coming up on Wolf: "Is America next?"

= = =

Still waiting for an analysis of how Bush/Blair did not "keep us safe by fighting 'them' over there so we don't have to on our shores."

3. Yep. We 'fight' terrorism by spreading terror and amplifying our fears.
I guess it makes sense to someone ... just not me. :shrug:

7. I lost all faith in our media
Several months ago when they reported some concerns the Dept. of Homeland Security had regarding the potential target chicken nuggets served in our schools made for terrorists. Of course I was very late in that assesment. But what can I say, I had always been an optimist.

4. Whenever these all day stories get going but there is very little "new"
news, you begin to hear the inane comments. Now Bernie Kerick is saying how much the terrorists wish they could do the London's, Madrid's, and Indonesia's in the U.S. If only they could figure out a way to commit a terrorist act here. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I guess we are immune. Now, 9-11 never happened.

8. Normal?
http://www.unknownnews.net/page2.html#u0101


The Normal Game
by Underground Panther in the Sky

Since you had different parodies on yer site, I got inspired in the shower today and I wrote this one. It's sung to the tune of "The Brady Bunch" ...

Let me tell you a story, 'bout a game called Normal
It's really no more than a psycho hunch
That people to be a better species
need to die a bunch

In eighteen seventy-seven Normal was invented
It's birthplace was the mind of Francis Galton
Galton had a fondness for pins and boxes
The marbles said who'd pass on

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's why we all play the Normal Game.

Galton was a cousin of Charles Darwin
Of origin of species writ of fame
They were cruel men thought of as smart men
None dare call them insane.

Galton thought he'd engineer evolution
Some greedy rich men felt that this was it
They called it a genius innovation
Their heads were full of shit.

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's why we all play the Normal Game.

Till the one day when Galton sold the public
And they believed it was much more than a crock,
Because Darwin said our species might be guided.
let's start with Galton's cock.

The bible scholars were up in a furor
Evolution still has their panties in a bunch
But it's the people who evolved into the churchmen
Whom ate the normals for lunch

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's what happens when we play the Normal Game.

Years later a Galton fan named Hitler
Took normal to it's very scary ends
He killed lots and lots and lots of people
He even killed his friends

But these stubborn and clever eugenicists
Wouldn't stop normal o'er bad press
they changed tactics, co opted psychology
And made a total social mess

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's what happens when we play the Normal Game.

Eugenics then warped the social mindspace
Creating false ideas about human minds
Take a person, make them play Normal
fit in to save their face

So psychiatry has forced us to be 'normal'
The crazy norms became our 'sanity'
We are so scared now of being different.
We act like Hannity

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's what happens when we play the Normal Game.

So we'd rather lie than know our own life story
Never admit how confused and scared we are,
But we are different people living all together
Hiding from our scars

So to avoid this we all try to look real normal
Pretend our life it is not so very rough
Denial and control is our way of life now
So we must be tough.

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That's what happens when we play the Normal Game.

So It seems that old man Galton got his way now,
It seems we all are normal to a fault,
Monoculture rules in the suburbs
Normal is a cult

The Normal Game
The Normal Game
That is why we all play the Normal Game.

10. Call me nuts
But as we were on the verge of a longshot maybe one in a million (we'll take it!) chance of bringing Bush down..then getting out of Iraq..or at the very least making Rove be outed for the snake he is (please let justice prevail) this day happens.

And I'm thinking about Nostradamus and is famous..war reigns forever after..which seemed so notably to go with 9/11..and a great terror comes from the sky...Sept moi/ and war reigns on and on.

I fear that is our future. I feel like there will never be anyplace safe..all my beloved cities..London..New York..Paris next? I wanted a different millenium and all we have is the same old endless war of mankind that creates nothing and only destroys. I'm feeling very shaky..like after 9/11.
