Everyone already reads the brilliant Amanda Marcotte of Mousewords, who is now permanently at Pandagon - right?

She took my breath away today:
I have also noticed that two values that BushCo likes to fling around are "life" and "freedom", but I have also noticed that the two are opposite values in their rhetoric. You can have freedom or life, but not both. They are pretty consistent in this viewpoint, and if they evoke freedom, you can be sure they are covering up for someone's death, and if they evoke "life", you can be sure they are trying to take away your freedoms.
Thank you, Amanda. It chills me to say that I think you're exactly right.
