... Meanwhile, on the keep-'em-scared-keep-'em-compliant front, I received in email this appreciation of the public relations effort employed by the Department of Homeland Security ... an agency that can use the word "terrorist" without noticeable reflection. Together with a video, it suggests among other things that white Americans are the most likely terrorists. The Department of Homeland Security budget request for fiscal year 2011 was $56.3 billion.
The terror this organization deserves to inspire in thinking Americans is truly awesome. It is hard not to think of Monty Python actor Terry Gilliam's black, black comedy, "Brazil."
Speechless is the best I can muster.
