Try not to get caught and get frisk by airport security for bringing an object that can be consider a terrorist threat on the plane. (your two half bitten Krispy Kremes that you stuffed in your briefcase.)

Control is a matter of degree, of course. The super-elite and its minions do not care whether you buy Bach or the Beatles when you buy CDs. They do not care whether you purchase The Matrix or Dumb and Dumber. They will not make you turn off Oprah and turn on PBS instead. They will not move to stop anyone’s enjoyment of sports, or of fashion, or of nightclubs, or probably even of pornography unless the latter can be used as an excuse to impose control over the Internet. These all constitute distractions—and, perhaps, outlets. At this level, our economy is free. But in the “desert of the real,” all the important decisions are being made at the financial power centers: , Washington, D.C., and to a lesser extent, in other metropolises like Chicago, Los Angeles and possibly Atlanta.

It’s time to start talking seriously about the imminent and immediate danger that President Bush, Vice President Cheney and other prominent members of this administration pose to the future of this country, as well as the already-disastrous Middle East. Yes, we talk about it here, and yes we all wish that they would just up and leave. But the fact is, not only is that not gonna happen, but every new day brings another example of how delusional, unhinged, aggressive and detached from reality these people are. (more)

The Republican party functions like one big, extended alcoholic one. Don't ask. Don't tell. Don't be yourself. Pretend we're perfect and that all is fine and whatever you do, don't expose the elephant in the living room.

One of the 465 comments of that diary.

Unless the whole country gets into the mindset of we (I am) are allowing this to happen to our country, our Constitution, our laws, humanity, our planet, our morals, values, characters, and most of all our children's futures--will we stop be able to stop being enablers and do something.

Impressive list of lectures of going on where my sons go to college. Thank goodness they cannot be bothered, ;) Mama plays a sneaky game of Twenty Questions too.

The gals over at the PJF Fan Club are, once again, being illogical. They are "taking the high road" by taking down Gerald Horgan pix because they don't want to infringe on copyrights. But, unless they are media moguls in their free time, all the other pix they have posted are also infringing on copyrights.

Girls, girls, girls. Face it. You've totally lost it.

BTW, leave Horgan alone. He would not be amused by correspondence from you.

To anonymous at 6:33:
I am the 'offending' poster at the PJFFC. Yes, I saw the illogic of it when I wrote it re the copyright thing in general, but I let it go, because I just wanted to get to the specific request. I did not go into detail about the copyright issue itself and any other photos, as I just wanted to reference his request to just go to his site, and cited Gerry Horgan's own copyright wording. I was not wringing my hands over copyrights in general. This Horgan fellow specifically shared here and asked this Fitz to pass on his words about copyright, so I just wanted to be nice and do the same. They're his family pictures, he has chosen to share them with the world, but made a special request, and so I just passed on his wording. OK?

As for one person's idea to invite him, she meant only to be pleasant. I don't want to contact Gerry Horgan, and said so. Not only because I don't honestly desire that visibility, but because as I've posted time and again, crushing on a public figure's public image is worlds away from pursuing contact with the actual individual. I'm not too interested in contacting Horgan for that very reason, along with wishing fewer [hostile] people knew about the site. But, anonymous, who are you to speak for Horgan? You are the one who seems to lack the sense of boundaries. Not myself.

Anonymous, your hostility and desire to bully a handful of women having harmless fun is completely bizarre. You are the one who has "lost it." You spend your time over there lurking and reading and building a case. There is something really wrong with you. You are a coward, for starters.

People, it is serious to charge someone with stalking. When you label people who you know will see this, you are seeking to hurt real people. Why? I'm not stalking the man, but you ARE falsely accusing and defaming. That is wrong.

I've decided I'm going to continue posting freely and happily over there, and not be bullied by some coward. However, for those of you who are basically decent folk, could you accept that you've enjoyed some of the light-hearted materials we've developed, and our screenshots (the big "O" was mine, y'know), and that joking about stalking just isn't at all nice?Thank you!

Fitz I'm glad you and the team are home but to be honest better you then me. I remember the windy city and when it's says bone chilling they mean bone chilling. Peaches and I went out to shop and every bone in my body was frozen. It took many hours in the mall to get warm. It's like your face freezes up and your breath is cold and short. I don't miss the snow either. It took me all day to clean and the next day to recover. Fitz what ever you do don't get old.

I have three words for you, anonymous. Pot. Kettle. Black.

Perhaps you might want to find a hobby. Trolling websites for kicks is so 1990, isn't it?

It's unfortunate you have nothing better to do with your precious time than to bully. You might want to ask your "colleagues" for some help with that obsessive behavior as well, hm?

Fondly,
M

I'm another "offending" poster, and tough shit if you don't like the Fitz Fan Club. You kindly don't have to troll there if you find it's beneath you. So bugger off.

I mean, it's not like you're already cross-pollenating on a "fake Fitz" blog yourself or anything...
