    Default Fear mongering

    Fox News is warning that Biden is "brazenly exploiting the pandemic to centralize control over every aspect of our lives".

    Meanwhile, Fox News is also warning that Biden's policies are dangerously close to those of Carter. We should be so lucky.

    There are only a limited number of classes of thing which can be "monged" - fish,iron and fear - but not onions, copper or happiness.

    What are the rules?

    i think we need to bring back mongering. Too good a concept to leave to the fearful or the unwittingly anachronistic.

    War is mongered. My commanding officer in ‘nam called me a peacemonger. (OK, I stenciled a dove on his desktop.)

    "A monger is a seller, especially of something specific like a fish monger or an iron monger. You can use the noun monger as a word on its own, although it frequently shows up as a suffix, in words like cheesemonger. Monger can also be used as a verb meaning "to sell or peddle.""

    I know an itinerant cheese-monger. The first time I met him he told me it was like being a war-monger, except he did it with cheese.

    I still think that, on a news network, this is fraud, and should be deemed illegal.
    Now he's gone. If only he'd be forgotten.

    I passed a billboard today, that read:

    Unmask Montana
    Let yourself breath
    For freedom

    The background was a photo of a cowboy and cowgirl kissing, horseback.

    You have to "breath" deeply for optimal health, I think. Freedom!
