Habeas Corpus 1215 - 2006, RIP

As if the Patriot Act didn't go far enough toward turning this country into a Republican Christo-Fascist Police State, now we don't even have the right to question the government as to why you were arrested. Keith Olbermann dissects the effect of this new law on the Bill of Right. (No, I didn't forget the "s".)

Bush will stop at nothing to elevate his sorry-ass fiasco in Iraquagmire to the status of a war for national security. There is literally nothing he will not sacrifice to save his ass.

As he has said,

"You never know what your history is going to be like until long after you're gone."

There is nothing he will not arrest, torture, invade, bomb, pervert, fabricate, classify or misrepresent to delay that reckoning with history.

"Iraquagmire"

I like that.

I agree, Vigilante. I'm just waiting for the declaration of Marshall Law right ahead of the elections, either this year or in two.

Not while I'm still breathing.

Thanks for that video. I hadn't seen it yet.

The blatent disregard for our laws is disgusting and absurd. Plus the fact that so many seem fine with the trampling of our basic freedoms makes my stomach turn.

You're welcome, Bourgeois_Rage. It's quite scary, isn't it? I'm afraid there aren't enough people who really understand how dangerous this law and this president are.

There are way too many folks out there who are willing to go right along, because "OUR government would NEVER do anything to hurt US!"

It's these little increments of loss of freedom that are so insidious. While I believe that if Mr. Bush had just declared himself king, there'd be enough outrage for a revolution, I don't think most people really get that that is exactly where this sort of thing is heading.

Our freedom, our country, dies a little each day, and few people even notice.
