    no reason to tell tytalus and others that they're living in fear. Given your multitude of fear-mongering posts throughout the day, one might find this a bit odd.

    •  Jeff, we really don't have to agree on anything (8+ / 0-)

      the fact that I believe we've crossed a rubicon in this nation towards a police state is not fear mongering, it's reality as I see it.  

      "So, this is how democracy dies, with thunderous applause."

      Tytalus' demand that common knowledge is dangerous IS because he his afraid.

      This "reality based" community is becoming less and less these days.

      •  That's the thing about reality, though (3+ / 0-)

        It's consensual. We should both be able to see it if it's reality. That others do not should be a strong suggestion that it's not reality. But carry on, self-styled telepath.

          Reality doesn't need anyone's permission -- it just IS.

          There is a whole political party that seems devoted to NOT seeing about half of reality. Being able to SEE it is clearly not a part of it. Let's not joint them on them on the other side.
