Be Scared, America!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOO

Since they've done away with the color coded terror alert system to scare people to the polls, they've decided to just create terror out of thin air. John on Americablog sums up my feelings on the matter. I do have one more thing to add, though... utter bullshit. Complete, and utter bullshit.

AMERICAblog: Yes, how convenient:
I just don't believe a thing this administration says any longer.

Seven people were arrested Thursday in connection with the early stages of a plot to attack Chicago's Sears Tower and other buildings in the U.S., including the FBI office here, a federal law enforcement official said.

And they just happened to arrest them today. Uh huh. What's the matter? A good Orange Alert just doesn't get out the vote like it used to?"
They have to create these fake terror alerts to justify the raping of the Constitution and your privacy rights. Here's how it goes: "We caught 7 Americans in Miami planning to blow up the Sears Tower because we did the following even though it is illegal as fuck... so look away, America, look away:

Bank Data Secretly Reviewed by U.S. to Fight Terror:
"WASHINGTON, June 22 - Under a secret Bush administration program initiated weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks, counterterrorism officials have gained access to financial records from a vast international database and examined banking transactions involving thousands of Americans and others in the United States, according to government and industry officials."
Watch Bruce on CNN:

Ava Lowery has created another outstanding video in response to Tony Snow's statement that the 2,500 troops killed in Iraq are "just a number". You must watch and you must give love to Ava. Remember, 15 years old.

Not Just a Number

If you didn't see the Frontline special called "The Dark Side". You must watch it.

Blue Gal, one of my new blog associates, offers an excellent discussion on why the Republican's don't really want to get rid of Roe. (Blue Gal is hot, too! In a NY Times crossword in bed kind of way. Give her a read. She's becoming one of my favs).

Blue Gal: Beyond the usual suspects....:
"Let me put it this way. Pat Robertson and James Dobson may talk loudly about protecting the unborn. But if Roe is overturned their ability to fundraise on the issue is as good as over. And Karl Rove does not want Roe overturned. I guarantee you. Who has more power within the Republican Party, do you think? Pat in-any-sane-world-I'd-be-committed Robertson? Or Karl in-any-just-world-I'd-be-indicted Rove? "
A good take on blogs as the new/reviving the old media:

The Washington Monthly:
"Yes, blogs are often shrill, boisterous, and unapologetically partisan. But that's a good thing. People who prefer reading to listening or watching haven't really had a rabble-rousing mass medium at their disposal for a long time, and blogs are a chance to recreate a part of Americana that we've sorely missed for the past half century. Hooray for us!"
