If you don't believe that the government has gotten completely out of hand and is in the middle of a giant meltdown ala Chernobyl when the atomic fission went haywire, you probably live out in the shores of the New Arctic Sea that hasn't been mapped very well yet because it just showed up there a few years ago because of that liberal non-existent Global Warming. Besides the escalation of forces, Bush's new and old idea that he's tried twice before (and didn't work then either), we are now also desperately trying to involve Iran and now Pakistan into the web of evildoers's and those that hate us for our imaginary "freedom's" that we really don't have anymore. If you want to believe that these countries hate us for out "freedom's"; they hate us for our non-existent rights under the Magna Carter which was negated by Bush, our rights of Habeas Corpus which were also negated by Bush (that's the right to know your accusers and see the evidence against you, and you right to an attorney, and your right to a trial, and the right to know what the charges are, and your right to defend yourself, you realize that the government had taken those pesky irritations out of the mix don't you?). the right to privacy of your mail, your computer, your phone conversations and search of your house and vehicle with or without a warrant and with or without you being told about it. These are just of the few things that have gone on in the past six years. The Democratic Congress is wringing it's hands wondering if it should continue to support Mr. Bush, or to draw the line. Before we find ourselves in the secret prisons that FEMA and Homeland Defense is building in out "heartland" for just such an occasion, I sure would hope that Congress would hurry up. I'm sure that Congress would act with a wee bit more alacrity if bombs were being dropped on Tehran, but we might be under martial law by the time that happens. Even when his own military tried to resist, the only thing they got for that attempt was a set of walking papers and got themselves replaced by the certifiably brain dead who came to take their places. Bush said that he realizes that he is responsible for any mistakes that were made in Iraq, (if indeed any mistakes were made in Iraq). I'm sure that when he shows us just how right he has been all along with this escalation, this new war with Iran will be the glue that binds us together as we march forward to victory against our enemies. Since we will no longer have any secrets from each other. By the way, the government is now doing credit checks on all of us to see who is prone to bribery and such. There really should be no need for congress to get involved at all. I'm sure that Bush's powers that come with the nation being at in a perpetual state of war, these "Unitary Powers" should be all that we need to deal with the foreign issues that might pop up. The Congress can take care of the domestic issues as long as they don't touch the funding for our armed conflicts overseas. In fact it doesn't take much of an imagination to see Bush just dissolve the Congress until this Crisis is over the same way he threw away the Bill of Rights with your permission. So I just want to ask my wonderful Democratically-led American Congress what exactly does it take to impeach a President? If Bush ad gotten a blow job while he was taking away the Bill of rights and due process, would that have earned him a trial? The only part of the above rant that isn't completely true was the curtailment of congressional powers in the last paragraph, but I assure you that if you do nothing, you can bet your campaign contributions from the American Medical Association and the American trial lawyer association and the American Petroleum Companies that is what is coming next. You can save yourself a heap of trouble and just appoint a special prosecutor and convene a Grand Jury and just go ahead and indict this entire administration for crimes against humanity and treason before you find yourselves without the power to do so. His President has no intention whatsoever in listening to you liberal threats against his "Unitary" powers. Just as Adolf Hitler negated the powers of the Riechstag, this President will negate your powers also. He has taken away just about every right that we have been given under the constitution, what more do you need. The only thing left is the powers you have as members of Congress and the money that you all have in your bank accounts and investments. We citizens have lost all our rights, we're just waiting for you in Congress to lose all of yours too. I believe I saw the German version of this movie that took place in 1933. The ending didn't turn out well. One more thing, is it possible to impeach Congress?
