    will be doing the dirty work.  It's one of my biggest fears, along with the "catastrophic event" that would stop the election, and keep DickNgeorge in office.

      I don't know, I think if Blackwater actually shot someone in the states, there would not be much resistance in the general public to have a massive assault on the whole Blackwater compound. I have to think the Timothy McVeigh's of the US would consider that a no-holds-barred call to arms.

      Eric Prince's mercenaries certainly don't have any respect that we would afford to our enlisted men and women, particularly in light of how Blackwater has supplanted the real soldiers for the love of money.

      George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"
