- With the release of this Star Wars thing, you knew something like this would happen. Want other examples of a ruler desiring more power in the face of a percieved threat? Let's see...Cardinal Richelieu (sixteenth-century France), Frederick the Great (eighteenth-century Prussia), Tsar Alexander I/Nicholas I/AlexanderII/Alexander III/Nicholas II (nineteenth-twentieth century Russia), Queen Elizabeth I (sixteenth century England), Abraham Lincoln (nineteenth century America), Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt (twentieth century Great Britain and America). Power hunger and fearmongering are NOTHING NEW!
- It is hard to believe that the likes of Ann Coulter still stalk the Earth. Don't be drawn in by her creepy glare!
- A new Patriot Act? We are well and truly screwed. Please, someone, stonewall this! Congressional grandstanding and gridlock, do your thing!
Pick and choose, any way you look at it, we lose!
