Fred is creepimg me out

With his latest piece:

"The Sovietizing of America runs apace. It is not imaginary. The Department of Homeland Security? KGB stands for Committee for State Security."

Check out the graphic he got from the DC Metro:

Re: Fred is creepimg me out

Fred's commentary is always a must-read for me. He always seems to nail it. That sign is eerie. Fred despises Mommy government, telling us, no not telling, mandating what is safe for us. Here he discusses the Limestone Drugstore where he carried a BB gun and read comic books during the 50s...

Quote: The inside of the store had been expanded and looked like most drug stores, but…lo!...the soda fountain was as it had been these many years ago! Apparently someone had a fondness for the past. It was empty, no comics were in evidence, and of course no pile of BB guns (mostly the four-dollar Red Ryder kind, though mine was an upscale Daisy Eagle). These, like everything, would today be illegal.

Wow, that Socialist Realist poster has got to be someone's idea of being cleverly, ironically retro. (Please tell me that is true...)

Gawd, I hope so. It was so strikingly similar to all the old Soviet era stuff I was really surprised not to see cyrillic lettering...
