20. "uncommon nonsense"? That's a pretty good way of summing it up ;)
My only qualifier is that that the nonsense has gotten all to common since Bushco took over.

What did Orwell call it? "New speak"? During the Viet Nam "nonsense", this now infamous quote epitomizes the absurdity that is alive and not-too-well today:

"We had to destroy the village to save it."
"Destroying Iraq to Save It"
http://www.commondreams.org/views04/1121-21.htm

So, are the neocons trying to destroy our Democracy, to save it (from the American people)?

"They" that would (inadvertently or not), help them in their goal - come and go. But, WE are still here.

And we're NOT going away until this wrong is made right.

Drip, drip, drip
