This Saturday: Keep Fear Alive or Restore Sanity????

Remember what FDR said:

"We have nothing to fear but fear itself."

or Walt Kelly's "Pogo" from June, 1953:

"Traces of nobility, gentleness and courage persist in all people, do what we will to stamp out the trend. So, too, do those characteristics which are ugly. It is just unfortunate that in the clumsy hands of a cartoonist all traits become ridiculous, leading to a certain amount of self-conscious expostulation and the desire to join battle.

There is no need to sally forth, for it remains true that those things which make us human are, curiously enough, always close at hand. Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blast on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us.

Kelly also used the "Jack Acid Society" to poke fun at the John Birch Society. The disgusting Glenn Beck and many of his followers are simply rehashing much of what Birchers said in the 1950's. They were wrong then--and they are wrong now.

Hey--I'm just saying!  You betcha.....

And remember what Smokey the Bear said:

"Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires"
