Of all the 9/11 tributes this week the one that stands out for me was last evening's Frontline: 9/11 Religion and Faith. Without dramatizing, without politicizing, this was the one to see on tv. It actually advanced the dialogue!
Watching ABC's Bush promo turned out to be impossible.
Has Al Gore admitted to the possibility of joining the 2008 campaign? The Scotsman reviews An Inconvenient Truth and adds that Gore has said this week that he may be a candidate. They ask Can Al Gore save the World? environmentally, but if you close your eyes and click your heels, you can almost imagine they're referring to a presidential run.
Because Gore is a member of the Trilateral Commission along with Bush Sr, Clinton, Cheney, Albright, Carter, and the rest, it's difficult to imagine that the road America is now on has an off-ramp toward something better than totalitarianism.
If you search this blog, you'll find a chart for The Day America Died, and it has occurred to me that most people seeing the date of this chart (JFK's assassination) will infer my meaning to be a misty longing for the Camelot-we-miss-ya illusion--and how America has changed direction since his death.
(It would be closer to the truth to say that America's illusions of by-the-people-for-the-people died that day. They who are put in office can be taken out if they don't toe the line. Bush toes.)
Actually, to be clear: the road we're on now was promoted by an agenda publically marked then by the assassination of a Catholic president who was making too many waves for the powers-that-be...including US governmental agencies, the Vatican, foreign regimes, and the world banking system...and perhaps we could include organized crime syndicates...oh let's do.
2006: the agenda continues as Bush's speeches this week attempted to link his war of misdirected energy with a broader threat. He failed to mention the threat from within our own government and its links to those who use assassination to control the American people and divert the popular will--thereby increasing their power in the world.
Bush leads by fear--if you call that leading. And the next installed president will be another piece in the puzzle, as was Clinton. They are all in it together, m'peops, as the Pluto/Chiron combo wages class warfare against the common man...in the US and all over the globe.
Wish I could have faith in the 2008 election with its squirrelly voter machines which are breaking down even as I type. It's all of a piece, and the prize is power, money, and world domination...the very thing bin Laden and his ilk fight against--but to be fair, they prefer their own brand of it--the Taliban model.
But as to America: we're the bah-sayers who've let the homegrown wolf in the door...and what big eyes he has.

12:26 pm: Shout-Out to Ed Bremson at Tao of Politics for putting me on to DebsWeb ...it's her quirky web at that, and at SO'W, we appreciate quirky--and strong opinionations! Read her "Danger, Will Robinson" and see what I mean.
