Hope & the Great White

If “ The Prince” can reduce the chairman of the National Alliance of POW/MIA Families; a woman unable to understand why the Senator's protestations of patriotism and personal pride are more important to him then allowing her to discover the status of her own MIA brother - to tears... what do you think he'll do as President of the United States?

Bush knows. He's predicting a Republican will HOLD the White House - one that will keep fighting “the good fight”... even if it's against us.

My Name is Michael Sterling, and I know what's coming(!)...

Am re-reading ILLUMINATUS (WHY?*)!, and just found the quote that I originally meant to open this post. As I archived the first 64 posts and gave them to my Grandson, I'm loathe to change a word, so here's Howard the dolphin's song with the "caption" in bold:

“A big mouth, a tiny brain / He only thinks of blood and pain.

He only thinks of blood and slaughter / The shark should live on land not water.

To hell with the shark and all his kin / And fight like hell when you see his fin.

May storms and rains and typhoons beat them / May Great Cthulhu rise and eat them.”

*Hagbard lays it out in 1975:

"Their grip on Washington is still pretty precarious. They've been able to socialize the economy. But if They showed their hand now and went totalitarian all the way, there would be revolution. Middle-roaders would rise up with right-wingers, and left-libertarians, and They aren't powerful enough to withstand that kind of massive change. But They can rule by fraud, and by fraud eventually acquire access to the tools They need to finish the job of killing off the Constitution."

"What sort of tools?"

"More stringent security measures. Universal electronic surveillance. No-knock laws. Stop and frisk laws. Government inspection of first-class mail. Automatic fingerprinting, photographing, blood tests, and urinalysis of any person arrested before he is charged with a crime. A law making it unlawful to resist even unlawful arrest. Laws establishing detention camps for potential subversives. Gun control laws. Restrictions on travel. 9-11, established the need for such laws in the public mind. Instead of realizing that there is a conspiracy, conducted by a handful of men, the people reason - or are manipulated into reasoning - that the entire populace must have its freedom restricted in order to protect itself. The people themselves agree that they themselves can't be trusted."

Emphasis (Fnords) added

All Hail!

I believe you meant "loath".

Sorry, proofreader.

An honorable profession. No apology necessary.

I think that was the first time I used that wrong word. In fact, it wasn't until I finished the new Koontz novel (his "Falun Gong" story, like BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON was his "drugs / Art Bell /" story) that I realized the difference between loathe and loath. Hope to not have to use either ever again.

But I might read the next Koontz novel.

Keep on proofin’
