Another step toward the abyss
I am so fucking angry right now I can barely speak.

The United States of America--what little is really left of it--now allows state-sponsored torture:


No government is legitimate that enacts laws to allow itself to torture fellow human beings.

George W. Bush--never a legitimate president--and all who support him are now, as far as I am concerned, enemy combatants.

I want my country back.

And here's a thought: what do you think the hypocritical right-wing neocon Talibangelicals would have done if Bill Clinton had tried something like this--or half the fascist shit Chimpy has pulled?

Oooh! Ooh! Don't forget the "Restricted" wiretapping bill!

Yeah. Big Brother Listens Better. o(:oP

They'd have whined and yelled and said he was un-American and what he was doing was unconstitutional and on and on. And they'd have been right.

The part about expanding the definition of "enemy combatants" to include people who somehow provide aid is similarly chilling. I mean, "enemy combatant" is already a nebulous enough definition, and now it sounds like you'll be picked up if you've ever had association with someone on the government's list.

Yup. Pretty much anything that isn't pro-Fourth Reich is suspect.

Well, with gas dropping before the election, it means idiots will vote Republican again.

Well, idiots always vote Republican; or, that is to say, anyone in this day and age who votes Republican is an idiot.

I want to hope their corruption, manipulation, perversion and wall-to-wall lies won't work this time around, but I have learned to never underestimate the stupidity and gullibility of the voting public. Just look at 2004.

I'm registered, I'm ready to vote. And I am ready to hope.
