Frightening Similarity Between W. Bush & The President In 'Escape From L.A.'  (Celtic Soup Editorials/Dec 27/2004) By David McMillan, Lynn Schroehmann, Gwen Stanzel & Tom Gathe


We don't have any maximum security prison islands... YET. But I find it VERY FRIGHTENING how similar der Fuhrer president Bush is to the president in Escape From L.A. almost everything about him is identical to Bush... except the president in Escape From L.A. is bo th an adequate actor and human being. Maximum security prisons are similar to concentration camps in their function and even a concentration camp has become a greater possibility merely by the nature of the people in the White House and in a majority in Congress now. You'd agree with me if you knew the things I know about these people that stretch centuries in the past to their English ancestors in London. Shouldn't this www.Snakeplissken.net site be petitioning the White House and help Move on.org keep Democracy going in this decidedly Oligarchic climate?

We should be using this time to make a difference to preserve our Democracy and save it from certain death in the next couple years not just petition about movies since reality is closer to Escape From L.A. now than ever before. Many of you might be in denial & afraid  to admit this to yourself...

Come on! If there ever was a time to give tribute to the spirit that Snake Plissken personifies to a tee, TRUE American Patriot ism, FREEDOM, equality, justice, prosperity for ALL, anti- establishment, small business, small government, wise government spending, courage and excellence, it is NOW! We should not only love the character of the screen but exemplify his ideals in life much as we wo uld the attributes of Christ, Yahweh, Allah, the Goddess or whatever your faith may be that who of course is the bases for the attribut es of heroic fictitious characters. It helps us all be what we ought to be and desire to be... heroes to each other and the world. The things that bring us together united & strong... in the hand of our common enemy, that makes us brothers and sisters. That ensures that we only spill our blood for true justice and righteousness, without thinking of getting so me thing in return but for the sake of these ideals in and of themselves, not for power or wealth.

Not only is our time dangerously similar to the time of Snake Plissken but it could become yet more similar in the months and years to come because of the unfortunate establishment that weak and brainwashed people have given up our authority.

I'd trust a yard of chickens to a ferocious wolf before I'd trust the U.S., power or money to the Bush people!! We find ourselves in a similar situation that the American Patriots were in in the American Colonies in 1774, against the English republican soldiers of Mad King George the III and TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION... the American Revolution became a necessity.

We all need hope, to be vigilante from here on of national events and not let complacency or apathy be our downfall in this next 4 years. Alot of fundamental changes may occur in the next two years which may change the the very core of our government because of the new Republican 'mandate '. We can't let these changes become realized since many of them involve changing laws, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, FREE SPEECH, FREEDOM TO PROTEST AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT and legislation to weaken & restrain the cause (progress) from even having a jumping off point. To weaken the very foundation of democracy and social justice. I know the tendency in this message board is keep it up beat, fun, humorous and not get too deep or serious but right now I think is a calm after an already terrible storm & before a yet greater storm.

Ben Franklin said of the English Royal powers that abuse authority, are criminal corrupt and step on others to become wealthy, "Politics is like a barn during a flood. Every once in awhile you need a good revolution to wash it out ." We may have to heed those words in not too long a time from now...

Boldly and with intense conviction...
