Skip to comments.May 2006 Message from Dan (Author of "Message from a Time Traveler"
Posted on 05/15/2006 10:22:38 PM PDT by Paradox
"It never occurred to me in my earlier creations of these freewheeling monthly or bimonthly "Messages from Dan" that I would have to write a Message about a previous Message. But it seems obvious that I must do just that. (For those visitors who may have missed the April 2006 Message, please find it in the archives linked aboveor be warned that what follows here will be very cryptic, at best.)"...
Other forum-posters were incensed that I could not see the true evil stalking the world todaythe United States of America, with the mendacious madman George W. Bush at the center of this expansionist evil empire, dispatching the U.S. Marine Corps to steal oil from innocent nations, subjugate them, and to slaughter babies there.
Theres nothing new in this response. It is a very small (although very common) mental box and it seems to satisfy its occupants needs for superiority, condescension, simplification, demonization, and conspiracy. It does interest me that the two people posting the most hyperbolic condemnations of the United States on this forumexplanations that it is actual genocide that the imperialist America and its lying, conniving, murderous president (and, by association, all other Americans) are promulgating and executingare from Germany and Serbia. The irony here speaks for itself and will be passed by without further comment.

He does get it. I am impressed.
you might find this interesting.
Thanks for the ping.
I will read it later when I get the chance.
It's long, but it's a most excellent analysis. I wish I knew who to ping to get them talking about it.
Sorry, I'm loaded up with work right now. :-(
worked most of the day myself!
650 4 $a Artefacts.
650 4 $a Surveys.
651 0 $a Beaverhead-Deerlodge N.F. (Mont.)
651 4 $a Montana
710 1 $a United States. $b Forest Service.
And so on and so forth all day....plugged into classical music, one book at a time.
(and no, I didn't spell artefacts wrong. That's the way the Keyword thesaurus I use makes you spell it.)
1st time I've heard of this Author, he writes well.
Down to the Library I'll be headed.
Indeed I did, looks like some libs didn't like it very much either.
No, they didn't. Loons.
I didn't "like" it either, but for very different reasons.
Because it was disturbing? I thought it was well written.
Makes you think.
The subsequent and lengthly May-June 2006 Message is where he reveals the information (Historical and current) he used to form a basis of the story, it is here where the really disturbing information is found.
