The Politics of Fear

I agree, using some 'scary' words to get an agenda passed. Reminiscent of 'Mushroom cloud over US city' and 'Iraq able to launch a Nuclear attack on US in forty minutes'. But, you know, the fear of our economy getting even worse seems a little more real to me then the mushroom cloud. That never really scared me.

The Politics of Fear

I for one am more afraid of what WILL happen in the future if we DO pass this stimulus bill. What are we doing to future generations? Have all the dems totally lost their minds?

And by the way SoCo, the fear of the mushroom cloud will come back! You may joke, but its always been very real. May not have been from Iraq, but I can tell you there are many countries that wouldn't blink an eye to wipe out the US. You're deluding yourself if you think otherwise. Don't you remember the 1980's? Or do you think that was all made up too?

Sure, I do. You are misinterpreting what I am saying whether it be deliberately or through ignorance. I agree there are legitimate threats i.e. countries or entities that can attack us with nuclear weapons and or have the desire to do so. What you are taking out of context is the fact that I am talking about propaganda used by Bush back in 01/02 to start his war. I'm not saying such a threat doesn't exist.

Are you serious? If, I tell you the Seychelles has the ability to launch a nuclear attack on the US in forty give minutes or cause a US city to become a mushroom cloud would you believe me? If so, I've got some lovely beach front property to sell you.

Bush went on TV and talked about Iraq launching remote drone nuclear attacks capable within forty five minutes and mushroom clouds! If that isn't fear mongering BS I don't know what is. It simply wasn't true. But, I am sure to you it was and is true and nothing will convince you otherwise.

Beach front property huh? Is there house on it? Could you e-mail me some pictures? I don't have time to go look at it in person, could we just do the deal over the internet.
Oh and I see from your post that you still don't like George Bush, you know they elected a new guy to that position. Obabalaba or something like that. I hear he is absolutely above reproach. Really dude, you need to get up to speed on this political stuff. Hey what news papers do you read everyday?

This is doable, I'll get the preferred method payment over to ya and soon after you'll receive your authentic title to this property complete with pre built nuclear shelter bunker able to withstand the worst nuclear attack and mushroom cloud. You'll feel much safer believe me, you know in case Haiti flies one of those nuclear drones over (heard they were friends with al qaeda).

Good doing business with you and is their some 'hidden' ethnic jab with the Obabalaba reference? Just wondering.
