Helena — Thank you. Perhaps I should have explained the “(sic).” I know it’s usually used to note bad grammar or a misspelling. But in this case, I was rejecting the idea that a government (especially a terrible one like Egypt’s) is “yours” or “ours.” Kent was doing the same when he changed the wording from “your” to “the.” Just a way of saying that abusive governments belong to the power-mongering insiders, not the people.
A shutdown of our officious, overreaching, increasingly Authoritarian, soft Tyrrany government at all levels has needed to be shut down, and have the corrupted operating system reinstalled and be rebooted for some time now- some say since Dark Lord Obama ascended to power, some since W and his Homeland Security enforcers of stasis, some since Slick Willie and his minions came to rule, some since FDR, and some way before that. Whatever time a shutdown and OS reinstall and reboot was first needed, it is way past time for it. Take it back ! Molon Labe !
