    Gotta luv our GOP Congressional Leaders

    From the Washington Post:

    To allow ... but not require ??

    I think everybody should personally thank Senator Frist and Speaker Hastert for their help in attempting to shred the Constitution of the United States of America.

    But wait, that's not all ... the Geneva Conventions are also on the line:

    How's that sound to you? Helluva plan 'eh?

    Well ... at least a few rational GOP Senators are squawking about that one:

    Comments?

    Why do you hate our freedom?

    I'm glad to see some Repubs shouting about these moves. That's a hopeful sign for the future.

    The illusion that America is a democracy is now completely shattered.
    The Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves.

    There was no illusion, just a misconception.

    This isn't about democracy though. In fact it's the elected branch that's stomping all over 200 years of legal thought, so in a way you'd be better off if you were LESS democratic...

    Aren't you in England where they're trying to sign us up to the Franco-Germanic Empire so our laws are controlled even more by a group of unelected party cronies? Where they want everyone to carry an ID card? Where they're trying to put a GPS tracking device into every car to allow for 'road use based road tax'? Where it's illegal to protest against the government within 1mile of parliament without said governments permission?

    This is exactly what I need right now. We've got an election here in three days that looks like it's going to be a disaster in every way for the International Forces of the Red Terror. God damned liberals out to destroy our perfect order. Needless to say I've been feeling a bit down as of late. Fortunately you can alway count on the Trotskyites across the pond to slap such attempts down. I can't wait for the next leg of the "war on terror". I sincerely hope that Sweden is next in line for a dose of the old "regime change" ploy to spread the revolution.

    This post, combined with your new South Park-style avatar, makes me laugh.

    It seems to me that the folks in Congress are concerned more with keeping their jobs and less about legislating change. I can see how the prisoner thing is relevant now, but the wiretapping issue has been news for at least a year now. It's as if there is an important political event in 6 weeks or so and everybody has to look busy. Who knew Guy Fawkes Day was so important to the U.S. Congress?

    I'm not worried, after the elections it will be back to the status quo. You know, keeping the people in fear while proclaiming at the same time how safe we are.

    The more I see of democracy the more I envy countries run by unelected party cronies...

    Meh, just get ID4 out on DVD.

    I wasn't going to bother (and I know you're looking for ECI)

    "I'm not worried, after the elections it will be back to the status quo."
