Keeping the President Safe From Ideas

Bill Shunn links to an about how the Secret Service keeps dissent from reaching President Bush’s ears. It is absolutely bonechillingly Orwellian how this administration uses language. A “free speech zone” is where you put people to suppress free speech, “no child left behind” is about putting schools in a situation where their incentive is to drop special ed students from the roles, “war time” is used to describe an elective, unnecessary invasion as if that puts the government beyond criticism. Good gravy, I can’t take four more years of this and neither can our country.
