R.I.P. United States Constitution
Which is the greatest danger facing the United States today?
A. The threat of an outside terrorist attack
B. The threat of an internal terrorist attack
If you said A., well, it must be nice, living down there with your head in all that sand.
If you said B., you hit the nail on the head. Because we don't need to worry 'bout no yippy skippy jihadists undermining our way of life. Dubya is doing a mighty fine job of it all by himself. His recent Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq can only be interpreted, Party People, as no less than an all out attack against the United States Constitution, specifically the Fifth Amendment. If you don't know what I'm talking about in either case, go on, Google 'em. I'll wait.

Okay, now for a short, sharp history lesson, courtesy Moi:
The absolute stunning beauty of the United States Constitution, the reason why it is without precedent in the entire history of politics, is that it was NOT created to protect the government from the whims of the people; it was created to protect We the People FROM the whims – often dangerous – of the government. How awesome is that?
But with the above decree, Dubya is circumventing the Constitution and everything it stands for and protects us against. What he is saying is this: "Trust ME not your country's laws."
You know what you call a government leader that requires total faith in their irrefutable knowledge and absolute power? A tyrant.
