    This....

    ....fear of black people, fear of independent women, fear of immigrants, even fear of education.
    Don't forget....fear of gays, fear of progress, fear of science and fear of difference.  Etc, etc., etc.
    It's what fuels the party of hate, the party of no, the party of big bucks for us and nothin' for you.  
    The bogeyman of fear is like an aphrodisiac to the uninformed and the willfully ignorant, it's the tie that binds, it makes frightened people think they'll band together against....whatever the fear is.  Works for a while, but it's not sustainable.  And then the money guys come up with a different thing to fear.
    And another.  And another.
    Their pockets are deep, we'll have to keep vigilant and work even harder.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!

      "'Now I found fear a mean, overrated motive; no deterrent, and, though a stimulant, a poisonous stimulant, whose every injection served to consume more of the system to which it was applied. "
