Right, to join in the fun.

President Obama doesn't scare me, even though he is African American [who knew!] he still fails totally to scare me, I know it's absurd, but there ya go.

The Democratic Party fails to scare me, mostly, just say boo, and they run away. The Republicans have been employing this tactic successfully for years. I think the DP actually enjoys running away, that's just my opinion btw.

Most of the Republican party fails in the scary scary category, they are usually too concerned with lining both their own and their friends pockets. This is a bipartisan effort as well.

The loony tunes Republicans, anti science, anti women, and religious zealot wing scare the bejesus out of me, I'll admit it because how the hell do you communicate with teh crazy.

Our present system whilst being borderline kaput doesn't really scare me.

However as we have seen all it takes is for one group of authoritarian loons to worm his way into power [Hi Dick and the Necons] then all bets about not being scared are off the table.

The same thing goes for this NSA fiasco, the reaction of a paranoid but not too scary government for the time being.

For those of you believe that democracy is for ever and scary people wont be able to hurt you [I can imagine just how much fun Nixon would have had with PRISM] then good for you. I for one am none too sure that cant happen.

There are plenty of scary people lurking in the halls of power and I for one believe the less access they have to information the better. So rather than give scary people an opportunity wouldn't it be wiser to fight the system now, because it isn't as yet scary?

Many employees in the NSA are not geeks, dorks and nerds; they are quite frankly scary people, and that is apparently in their job description. All this is wrapped up in a bow and handed to the MIC...I mean Department of Defense...hmm..MIC.

So I guess my argument is to clear this mess up now, rather than wait until it becomes imperative yet nigh impossible to do so.

Nobody likes being snooped on, so open up the Secret courts with secret laws to some real democratic oversight.

Oh, and get rid of that piece of idiocy the Patriot Act whilst we are at it.

They open doorways that I thought were shut for good.
They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu.
They build up my body, break me emotionally.
It's nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
