Musings on the Now Almost Forgotten Anthrax Attacks

Isn't it strange? Immediately following 9-11, Congress and major media outlets get attacked via the mail by what has now been identified as US manufactured weapons grade anthrax. Then, after the Congress (and the nation generally) launch into full panic mode and rubberstamp draconian post 9-11 legislation like the misnamed "Patriot Act," suddenly, the attacks just stop.

We still don't know who or what was behind those attacks. All we seem to know is that the anthrax was American made. The kind the feds themselves have routinely developed and experimented with in the past.

A notion struck me today which I'd like to bounce off of you...

What if the anthrax attacks on the media and Congress were a post 9-11 message from the executive branch to the only two power centers which might prove problematic should they resist it in its now full bore push towards fascist tyranny, both at home and abroad?

The message being, basically this: Do what we tell you to do or we can, if need be, kill you with impunity and blame it on "the terrorists".

In other words, were the anthrax attacks part of a defacto fascist coup against both the constitution and what little is left of the 1st amendment?

Does this sort of intimidation explain why abominations like the Patriot Act passed so quickly and with so little deliberation? Does this also explain why the media has been so compliant, beating the war drums in unison, cheerleading for the state?

This is pure speculation but if you were a rogue executive and wanted to leave nothing at all to chance, might you resort to such heavy-handed intimidation tactics? And if you were a Congressman or a Big Media star, knowing that you could have your ticket punched quickly by the state via such means if you failed to do as you were told, would you have any choice other than to comply?

Am I on to something here?

God Bless America (non-hypocritical version)

This parody was inspired by the sickening display of our Congress preening piously patriotic post-911 when they gathered together on the capitol steps to sing in unison "God Bless America" as the TV camaras rolled. If they weren't such flaming hypocrites, they might have sung the following lyric instead:

first verse:

God bless America,
Call evil good!
Stand beside her, don't chide her
Even though it will debase your Godhood!

From the White House
To the Congress
Though our hands be stained with blood!
God bless America,
Our home... suite... HUD!
God bless America,
Our home... suite... HUD!

second verse:

God bless America,
Call wrong things right!
Sure we're evil, downright medieval,
But we're not the evilest ones in the fight!

With our missiles,
And our smart bombs,
And our ammo of DU!
God bless America,
The world we screw!
God bless America,
The world we screw!

third verse:

God bless America,
Embrace the Beast!
Condone murder, lies, and plunder,
Come and join us in our Satanic feast!

From the UN,
Our new "Order" they proclaim!
God bless America,
We have no shame!
God bless America,
We have no shame!

fourth verse:

God bless America,
Worship us, please?
Fear our power, or you'll cower,
As we rain down destruction with ease!

From Kosovo,
To Asia's 'Stans,
To the wasteland we've made Iraq!
God bless America,
Conscience we lack!
God bless America,
Conscience we lack!

fifth verse:

God bless America,
Do what we say!
We're full of sh*t, but what of it?
We demand that you bless us anyway!

From the schoolhouse,
To the courthouse,
We've expelled you brazenly!
God bless America,
As you we flee!
God bless America,
As you we flee!

sixth verse:

God bless America,
Back our regime!
If you're up there, hear our prayer,
Though ev'ry time we sing it we blaspheme!

From the White House,
To the Congress,
Though our hands be stained with blood!
God bless America,
Our home... suite... HUD!
God bless America,
Our home... suite... HUD!
