It's been a dictatorship ever since King George II (Bush) took office.
Are you just now realizing all the powers that the Executive Branch is trying to grab up?
It's like hungry hungry hippos with American freedoms this past decade...
They are just nom-nom-nomming away on that great document we hold so dear...
I realize that, but W didn't have the audacity to brag about it.
I actually hope this kind of behavior from O will wake people up. But it probably won't. Baa.
Really? I thought His Royal Hillbilliness pretty clearly declared himself "The Decider". That's how I remember it all going down, anyway.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not an Obama Apologist...I just don't think we should make excuses for Boy George either. They are BOTH
Constitution-shredding tyrants. The only reason Obama is more bold is simply because the Bush Administration paved the way for him with the War on
Terror, Gitmo, The Patriot Act, etc. Without all those wild post 9-11 power grabs it would be categorically IMPOSSIBLE to even BEGIN to truly
entertain things like the NDAA, SOPA/PIPA, the NDRP, and yes...mandatory health insurance.
As of right now, the only hope we have is Ron Paul....and I say that as a guy who has NEVER voted for a Republican in my entire lifetime
The thing that blows me away is how all of this national outrage gets channeled into this healthcare issue while everybody just turns a blind eye to
the complete and utter subversion of the entire Bill of Rights in the other pieces of legislation.
WHY IN THE HELL ISN'T THE SUPREME COURT DEBATING THE VALIDITY OF THESE ISSUES INSTEAD OF THE LOUSY $80/MONTH HEALTH INSURANCE? Granted...one isn't
any more legal, lawful, or Constitutional than the other...BUT CHRIST ALMIGHTY...LET'S PRIORITIZE.
Is it more important to fight yet another form of taxation...or is it more important to fight the legislation which LITERALLY makes it possible for
people in your own town to be removed and imprisoned in concentration camps without charges, trials, legal representation, or even a damn phone call?
Just yesterday the Supreme Court OK'd strip searching and anal probing for even "minor offenders". The case in question was a guy who was locked
up for two weeks and subjected to this treatment twice for unpaid parking tickets. Just exactly what [idid the cops hope to find hidden up this
guy's ass anyways...parking validation?
One of these things is worse than the other, right?
What the hell is wrong with us?
