Seems the surveillance Bush says is to get terrorist information from US citizens includes spying on groups protesting "Don't ask, don't tell".

Been biting my tongue since his last televised speech, since I had to keep from saying how much he sounded like Nixon during Vietnam. Now I feel like he's a cross between Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover. Just substitute Terrorist for Communist, and you'll get the picture.

And for the record, I don't particularly agree with with either socialism or communism, however, I am very much opposed to creating boogeymen out of people with different ideals for political gain.

Oh, yes. "We've always been secretly targeting people who deviate from a falsely defined definition of 'normal', so that's the same as permission, isn't it?"

I am waiting for the torches and pitchforks.

Torches And Pitchforks?

Speaking of, I found a non-collectable card game you would appreciate. Munchkin, amusing if only for the gazebo encounter. (No one can help you, you're on your own.)

Oh, just scoop up your share of the alacrity and let's go!

I've actually seen Munchkin. gigelf has it. Yes, that's right, he's geeky AND cute. And he has a hilarious username. Sadly, he's straight and has only the vaguest notion what it means.
