I am very worried although not of a nuclear attack per se.  I am
worried that human freedom, prosperity and invention may be seriously
curtailed and rolled back through global agression and
counter-agressions.   I am worried that the continuously diet of fear
we in the US are being fed will preclude the majority of the people
from even remembering to care about freedom.  I am afraid the majority
will vote for whatever draconian "cure" for their fear that the
proponents of the fear wish to sell them next.  I am worried that the
anti-mind, anti-science, pro-belief folks are running the show and
that their control of the Executive is ever more dire as the Executive
gets more and more unilateral power.  I am worried that both the
NeoCons and the New Democrats share a penchant for imperialistic
control of the world in the best interest of continuous US domination
on all fronts.   I am worried that in all practical ways the parties
are nearly indistinquishable except for the facade over the top of the
same underlying  deadly designs for the country and the world.   I am
worried that we are playing bizarre idiotic games while burning
through our primary energy source and best chemical feedstocks.   I am
worried that we are playing US vs Them games at every level and their
are no voices hardly anymore that seek to find solutions that work for

Instead of focusing on immediately hitting back at Osama, Bush officials indulged their idiotic idée fixe on Saddam and ignored the memo from their counter-terrorism experts dismissing any connection between the religious fanatic bin Laden and the secular Hussein."
