My "Scaridness"

I'm scared. I'm scared. So very, very scared. I'm so scared that scare is a word not enough to define my "scaridness".

"They're lurking". "They're plotting". "They're patient". "They want to take away my way of life".

They want to take away my "scaridness" (not to be mistaken with "truthiness").

I can't let them do that. I love my "scaridness". It's a sacred "scaridness". It lets me know that I'm alive. If I didn't have "scaridness", I'd be dead. Being scared makes me feel alive.

Thank God that Bush, Rove, Cheney, and Rumsfeld understand the sanctity of my "scaridness". If it wasn't for them, some a**hole would be holding up a Constitution, a Bill of Rights, or quoting FDR's infamous "All we have to fear is fear itself" crap.

"Scaridness" is something that has served humanity well over the years. It works well.

Damn those people who are trying to take my "scaridness" away. Those who say that it's time to take a pause and look at things like the Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance, torture, and water- boarding are fools. Next they'll be coming after my snowboard.

They even argue about "renditions". Something defined as:
1) The act of rendering.
2) An interpretation of a musical score or a dramatic piece.
3) A performance of a musical or dramatic work.
4) A translation, often interpretive.
5) A surrender.

Only a fool would not understand that a "rendition" is nothing more than a "surrender" to an "interpretive" "musical score" or a "dramatic work". Just like in the movies.

I hope these people who are trying to take my "scaridness" away aren't successful.

I love my "scaridness".

It's all we have. It's "our way of life".
