  1. How many of you are tired of peter fredson’s continually spitefull and arogant posts?

  2. Waaaahhhhh, Waaahhhhhh!  Hey do you hear that noise, Mr. Death?!  It’s the Wahmbulance, and it’s coming for you…Waahhhhh!

    I enjoyed the article Peter.

  3. I can’t answer these questions. I’m too wrapped up in the Terry Schiavo case.

  4. I always like your essays too Peter.Mr Death seems a little paranoid to me.Maybe he senses he may be in enemy territory..

  5. Hey, Peter, thanks again. Is your writing more the result of hobby or professional writing? There isn’t much you write that I’m not at least a little entertained by.

  6. BlueEyed Banshee, Frumpa and Arc Legion: Thanks for your comments.

    I began writing about 3 years ago when the shenanigans of Bush and his True Believer army went beyond normal democratic procedures.
    The Bush lies about WMD’s and the fact that he had made up his mind to invade Iraq when he first took office, led me to investigate the NeoCon and True Believer networks. What I found enraged my sensibilities.

    I found Bush and company using recruiting tactics similar to Francisco Franco and his Falange, to Benito Mussolini and his Classical Fascism, and to Adolph Hitler with his Homeland Security forces. I saw the all-pervasive and deliberately intrusive religiosity indicated a trend toward a theocracy. I knew that the appointment of Ashcroft signaled a change in our democracy.

    I know that Bush believes his powers are unlimited. I saw first-hand death and destruction by troops, the vile concentration camp at Dachau, and determined that such events should not repeat. I don’t believe in political assassination so my only recourse was to vent my outrage by writing before Bush and company have complete censorship.

    I try to warn people about the dangers Bush presents to the U.S. I try to show the exploitation of Bush by waving flags, kissing crosses, by referring to our brave soldiers who are his cannon-fodder, and by continually distracting people from real issues of our country by emotional appeals regarding sexual activity.

    I try to show the conspiratorial strategy of all of the Right Wing Think Tanks mixed with corporate greed. I try to show the nefarious influence of all of the televangelists out for a quick buck and their dumbing-down of American education. I try to warn people about the goals of dominionists, reconstructionists, apocalyptics, army of goddists, etc.

    I know that my essays will not affect the Bush True Believers in the slightest, that their course was set long ago, but I cannot stand idly by while our democracy is being transformed into a hideous simulacrum of imperial splendor for the elite, and a miserable existence for the rest.
