Yes you're probably right. To some degree, I'm sure that every administration since Washington has to some degree or another infringed on the
rights of the people who elected them. However, what bothers me is how this administration's attitude is that they can do it, they can get away with
it, and there is nothing that anyone can do about it.
It's unbelievable that Clinton was made to face impeachment hearings for lieing about something that Congress had no business getting involved with
in the first place. I'm sure that Clinton was not the first to get his jollies with an intern half his age inside the White House, nor will he be
the last for that matter. Nevertheless, if lieing is the prerequisite for impeachment, then where is the outrage for the multitude of lies we've
been told by the Bush Gang? I ask you...what do you find more offensive and criminal? Lieing about a blow job, or sitting down before the United
Nations and lieing about the reasons that would justify our going to war with a nation that really had nothing to do with the United States being
attacked on 911, and more to do with one man's obsession with controlling the free flow of oil to the United States (cause we all know that was and
still is the motivating factor for us being there.)
Personally I would much prefer that GW was spending more time with interns in the oval office and less time worrying about what i'm doing on the
internet, who i'm talking to overseas, what Middle Eastern Regime he can get the most money from for the right to supervise our critical ports,
Bankrupting our National Reserve....oh and speaking of Dubei....does anyone remember that little tidbit about how Dubei had donated some ungodly
amount of money to the Katrina Victims? Where is that money? I mean really, where is it? And for that matter, where is money the government
My point is that while it's true that there have always been rogue cops, (the L.A. scandal comes to mind) in the past, it seemed to always be
directed towards the criminal elements that they felt they we're up against as policemen. Never before has this type of rogue behavior of local law
enforcement been so openly and arrogantly directed towards the average law abiding citizen.
What they did in Florida was just a low down dirty trick, blatently unprofessional, and bordering on unconstitutional i would think....yet not once
but twice, they posted his name and information as a retaliation for a story that cast thier policy of handling complaints against thier own, in a bad
light. Now that is something I don't recall happening!
