Who'se Mad as Hell Now?

Today's column by Capitol Hill Blue publisher Doug Thompson reveals that he has been placed on the government's "no-fly" list. Is it my imagination, or are there a large number of American names on that list which just happen to belong to critics of the current Administration?

Doug Thompson is on it, but Pat Robertson isn't. Ted Kennedy is on it, but Tom Delay isn't. Hmmm... Tricky Dicky had an enemies list too, but at least he didn't use it to prevent his critics from traveling.

Life in America has come to resemble a Marx Brothers movie, but without the laughs.

The President of the country is keeping his opponents from using airplanes to travel -does that sound right to you? And yet where is the outrage? Where are the people leaning out their windows and screaming "I'm mad as Hell, and I won't take it anymore!"

I'll tell you one place they're not -flyng in airplanes.

One thing the Government knows it can count on is apathy. There have been so many things during the course of this administration that have made me wonder how in the hell can the American people just lay there and take it. Yet we do take it.

And the minute someone questions some of the Governments bonehead moves, they are called unpatriotic.

I don't get it.
