It's A Joke, Right?

I keep thinking lately, "Come on - it has to be a joke, right?" I keep expecting someone to come out and say "Psyche! We really had you going there for a while, didn't we?"

Real ID? Excommunicating Democrats? 'Fixing facts' so we can attack a country who has not and cannot attack us? Gutting Social Security? Teaching creationism ('scuse me - intelligent design) in science class? Trying to abolish the separation of church and state? To criticize the President in any way, even by 'faint praise', is un-American, even treasonous? Attorneys-General like John "Patriot Act" Ashcroft and Alberto "No Pain, No Gain" Gonzales? 400 billion dollar deficit?

Imagine this going on five years ago - I can't! It sounds like crazy talk.

Real ID- get ready, in 10 years, you'll have to leave urine samples down at the DMV and DNA sample encoded into your driver license. Will this stop any threat? Ofcourse not. Will it help the state aggregate power? Yes. The whole point is to have points of leverage over the lonely individual, so he will be ennobled to join the mass.

Gansta-zales must have some sick DVD collection- the way he was able to parse all those definitions. Rumsfeld too.

Surely you must be kidding! We need all those things if America is to remain strong, Christian, and terrorist-free.
