RIP: habeas corpus 1215-2006
I just want to have a moment of not-silence for the death of habeas corpus, which, in being gutted by the vampiric Bush Administration, also guarantees the death of the United States Constitution to progressive blood loss.
The silence in this nation is deafening. Does most Americans even care?
I just want to be able to say (should they come to take me away) that on this historic day, on which that Jesus-muncher lunatic George W. Bush virtually seized despotic power to determine who is and is not an "enemy combatant," and thus who is and is not an American citizen (we are now all potential "enemy combatants" to him), I was among those who at least said something in protest.
Keith Olbermann's "special comment" was given last night on the death of democracy in America. Don't miss it.
