This post over at Scotusblog explains why the post that was here (and should still be here) isn't here anymore.
That's pretty much all I can say on the subject. We should at least have the presence of mind to recognize our worst fears: after a seemingly interminable, dark eight years of the Bush Administration, we finally elected a Democratic President, believing that he would even remotely keep to the spirit, if not to the letter of his core promises re restoration of the rule of law. He did no such thing. The only thing he has proven effective at thus far is shivving liberals, and of course, perpetuating (and then upping the ante!) on the Bush "national security state". He was elected to end two wars, and hence, he is continuing them and increasing their intensity. I am 100% convinced that his prior status as a "Constitutional Law
Professor Senior Lecturer" is 100% a fraud. Apparently he and his Justice Dept. missed the lecture on the First Amendment.
That's that. It seems the endlessness justifies the meaningless. The only point is the ability to bring down the jackboot.
When will my country start to behave like I was programmed to in the 1950s.
When did the country get taken over by a pack of junkyard dogs?
I am so ashamed of all that has happened because people that should be prisoners are ruining the country.
I thought the Thuggee sect of murders was wiped out by the British in India, because at their worst they couldn't hold a candle to the murders in Iraq or Afghanistan each year.
I am going to start referring to the Thuggee republican/democratic party and the Thuggee democratic/republican party.
