I want to thank the neocon and MSM fearmongers
Actually, I think they are one and the same. Anyway, my 76 year old dad and I have breakfast every week and we discuss things like sports, our life happenings, and yes, politics. He is, was, and always will be a Democrat and has passed that along to his children. But he was telling me the other day that he thinks he is going to quit watching CNN so much because he's getting scary dreams about terrorists hitting elderly people and so on. He says that he has been watching CNN for years (he has) and now he just can't do it anymore. He said he tried Fox, but couldn't stomach it and besides that, my mom won't let him watch that nonsense. He also said that MSNBC is ok, but sometimes they scare him too. Now this is a man who raised us to basically be unafraid to make a stand when needed, to fight back if necessary, to never ever be afraid of who or what we are. My dad is getting older, true, but there is no fucking way that anyone has a right to scare him, or anyone else for that matter. But neocons, your little trick is gonna backfire, he is still voting Democrat this year and every election until he dies. So I want to thank you because you are making a strong man weaker, but not weak enough to fall for your bullshit.

3. Yeah, all it takes is a Tweety repeating over and over again on
his show tonight (paraphrasing) "Nine or ten airplanes blowing up and then slowly falling down into the sea - giving the passengers several minutes to contemplate their deaths." Actually asked one of tonight's guests if she thought anyone would want to see that. God damn, he is completely stupid. God damn him. (I NEVER use the GD - even though I'm an atheist - just seems lame and rude, but God Damn Tweety to hell for all eternity.)

He planted that mental pictures several times tonight. I can see people all over the country cowering in fear from crap like that. "Please, please Mr. Bush and the repugs, save us!" He is such a fraidy cat I bet he won't fly for the next 20 years.

I hate Tweety, his wife, kids, parents, family and friends should hate him for what he has done and is doing to this country.

4. Would someone issue a gag order for the M$M
They are beyond irresponsible at this point.

I am sick of their fear and hate mongering.

2. Thank you Bluznn57!! Here's to a Pox on all the Right-Wingers!!
I swear to God, all they want to do is make everyone afraid of everyone, until we are all afraid to take out our garbage, for fear that someone will report us that we didn't take out the appropriate garbage!

Keith Olbermann is the only in on any of those channels that I can handle, the rest of them are right wingers. Seriously though, on second thought, is there anyone or any program on any of those channels who is fair, or at least not biased in favor of the neo-cons, who have so severely tilted our country to the right???

BTW, I just applied for a union job today. I hope I get it. I am tired of being pushed around.

6. I was sick to see the Duluth NewsTribune full of almost nothing
but terra, terra, terra. They are usually more sensible.
