Little creatures who scurry about.  Whose existence is seemingly nothing more than to pester other living creatures.  A wave of the hand, a whirling of the wind, anything at all, and these little flying nothings become excited and depart.  That is what many bloggers are.  Gnats.  All that Leviathan has to do is feign a swat and all of the brave little gnats disappear.  Nowhere to be found.

The Federal Government of the United States of America knows this, and when it is suitable, simply scatters the pesky little buggers.  They sometimes abuse their authority, as given by the people, to listen to all of the chatter of the gnats.  They do so in the name of security.  Whose security?  Theirs. Knowing that, like the Wizard of Oz, they have no real power to intimidate citizens, doesn’t matter.  They don’t need it.   After all, they are dealing with gnats.  Gnats, who in the minds of Federal Agents, are not real people or real men.  Can you fault them for having a little fun?  They always get what they want.  Gnats are predictable. 

And the blogs go silent.

Meanwhile, the gnats (whose little bodies are too small to contain guts) are MIA.  Scared of nothing. 

And the blogs remain silent.

    I’m still here. But it has been awful quiet lately. Lots of blogs I used to enjoy have fallen silent…

    The Kenyan wants them to go silent though…

    And he will not stop until he has control of what we say. Imagine him losing this election, the revenge that could be extracted between 7 November 2012 and 20 January 2013!

      Could get interesting. Doesn’t matter what he wants though. I’m beginning to think that he isn’t lookin too good right now. Chances for re-election seem to be slipping away. We shall see.

    In spite of the saying “be careful what you wish for…”. Whatever happens, I almost wish it would hurry up. Good, Bad or Ugly I’m tired of waiting.

      I think that the silent majority know that everything is amiss right now. Everyone is just waiting for “the event”. Nobody knows exactly how it will come.
