It may actually be a one of the natural laws of high anxiety. When things start looking good for a change, we cast around for reasons for it all to go wrong. Such is the nature of paranoia. (The following story was sent by Peromyscus.)
“Here is the latest big-picture conspiracy theory, which has been gathering strength on the blogosphere the way a hurricane feeds on Caribbean waters: It is widely believed, both online and, increasingly, offline, that the Bush administration intends to declare martial law and postpone next month's elections. To prevent Barack Obama's inevitable ascension to the Oval Office, obviously.
This theory/rumor/delusion dates back almost a year and a half, with the appearance on the White House website of National Security Presidential Directive 51, which outlined a policy for "continuity of government" in the event of a national emergency. Such emergency is defined as "any incident . . . that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the US population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

On the other hand, Ireland's largest bookmaker, Paddy Power, is now laying 20-1 that the American election will be postponed, odds which have shortened from 40-1 in just one week. We can only pray (to paraphrase The Pioneers) this longshot kicks the bucket. There will be no weepin' and wailin'.
The secret (and venerable) phrase will be Rising Up Angry
Alternative paranoid theory (of mine, all mine):
What we are seeing is the bustout, as the wise guys run up the credit lines to the max and prepare to ditch the gutted business (namely, the government of the United States).
The banking crisis and Wall Street crash was intended as an October Surprise, but they bungled the timing.
They won't be coming back: McCain is their fall guy. Who do you think those seven star hotels in Dubai are intended to cater to?
Doesn't that rather depend on whether they're crooks or fanatics?
And in the remake Cheney's in the Book Depository and it's Palin riding the open car.
But who's on the Grassy Knoll?
ooh,Wasilla is the meth capitol of Alaska. That's the best one I heard,and I would have to agree.
Dig your biting humor,and it sounds like your as scared as I am the way things are going in politics. And I thank you for the post showing the resume's of the people who are intent on running this country into the ground.
Here's my blog link,please see the fine music I present.
I'm mojo repair shop, and I deliver good music in these awful times.I'm in love with your blog,and you're laughing to keep from crying thing.
I'm a chick poster,so don't weird out on me. I think I have one or two of your books too.
I would venture to guess that Slumlord is my favorite song.
Let's not forget that Dick Cheney can't shoot staight.
"Obama has support among the wealthy
About 50 percent of BlackRock’s ultra-high net worth clients are Obama supporters"
"The Rich Support McCain, the Super-Rich Support Obama"
Lee Oswald couldn't shoot too straight either by all accounts.
Farren would never weird out on "a chick poster." Despite the sexist graphics he posts, he's a strange kinda feminist.
Thank you, ladies. Your comments keep me going.
Hey, I just noticed this. Garage 66 does have an excellent blog. Farren is alright too. He favors certain types of objectified images of women, but they have more to do with fetish than commodity. In other words, the dude is cool with chicks even if he is a little kinky.
And thank you, Jon. My attitude is to hide nothing and let the kinks fall where they may. It has been my fortunate experiemce that creative perversity is a multi-gender recreation. To believe otherwise is simply another form of sexism.
(This is also a 13 avoider.)
The only solution is to not vote for these HellyBurton motherfuckers. Is that CNN brainwashed country ready for such a leap?
