2008 Elections: A Question

How committed are you to your civil liberties as enshrined in the Constitution?

John McInsane would really like to know. Actually, no, he would not. In fact, he's hoping that you won't notice that he just announced his intention to keep spying on his fellow citizens if he is elected, because the President is really kind of a Supreme Ruler, or something, and has way more power than the Constitution, or the Founding Fathers, or any of you dipshits who might believe in laws of the land and that dumb stuff might envision. You know, just like his good buddy, Gee Dumb!ya.

And what do you plan to do about it?

Some pertinent snippets:
If elected president, Senator John McCain would reserve the right to run his own warrantless wiretapping program against Americans, based on the theory that the president's wartime powers trump federal criminal statutes and court oversight, according to a statement released by his campaign Monday.
Well, there's one obvious solution to that: DON'T elect the schmuck!!

Do we need to say it again? Whatthehell, we'll say it again: Don't elect the schmuck. He's got pudding for brains, wants a hundred years of war (remember, his sons can't fight it alone, so yours will have to join them), has promised to put a few MORE neanderthals on the courts, and gets advice from professional pasty maggot and turd impersonator KKKarl Rove. Who can doubt that this is just exactly like four more years of Gee Dumbya? Oh, yeah, and he admits he doesn't understand the economy, but will continue the huge corporate and personal tax cuts for the rich that sank our economy like a dayboat at high tide.

Anybody out there actually planning to vote for Gramps McLame? Because before you do, please kiss your military-age kids and friends goodbye and arrange for delivery of a cardboard refrigerator box, because that's what you'll be living in for the next four years.

La Casa de Los Gatos doesn't think breaking the country and causing untold suffering to one's fellow citizens is the right way to deal with being miffed that Hillary will not be our next President. Your candidate lost? Our deepest sympathies. We'd be feeling pretty damn crappy if our candidate lost, too. BUT. But, but, but. It's not about the candidates this time around. It's about how to save the country, which is dangerously close to sliding straight down the tubes.

This election &mdash trust us on this &mdash is pivotal. It is the last hope we have of correcting the dangerous course on which this country is set. Right now the number of jobs lost since Dumbshit McNumbnuts took power has punched a hole in our economy and our societal fabric from which we may not recover.

The Department of Justice has been corrupted by KKKarl Rove, David Addington, and their masters, Dick "Yes, I Am" and Cowboy George. The nation's infrastructure needs fixing NOW before another Minneapolis bridge disaster or New Orleans levee bust. It'll cost a few trillion dollars that we don't have right now as we struggle to pay interest to China, Russia, and Japan on all the money that we borrowed for the Iraq war, even as factories close down and jobs are exported wholesale to the very people lending us money.

It's time to think of the country first. The next eight years are going to be hard, and we will all have to participate if we want to benefit. It's up to us to fix the country. And while we're about it, let's try to make sure no one gets their greasy mitts on the Constitution, to damage it further. It's bad enough the Chimperor wiped his tush on it. Let's clean it off and keep it away from McLame.

More snippets, in case your blood pressure needs a boost:
As first reported by Threat Level, Chuck Fish, a full-time lawyer for the McCain campaign, also said McCain wanted stricter rules on how the nation's telecoms work with U.S. spy agencies, and expected those companies to apologize for any lawbreaking before winning amnesty.

But Monday, McCain adviser Doug Holtz-Eakin, speaking for the campaign, disavowed those statements, and for the first time cast McCain's views on warrantless wiretapping as identical to Bush's.
And he quotes the Article II argument that Dumbshit McPoophead made, that "the president has nearly unlimited powers during a time of war. The administration's analysis went so far as to say the Fourth Amendment did not apply inside the United States in the fight against terrorism, in one legal opinion from 2001."

You hear that? No Constitution during times of war. Don't like the Constitution? Just declare war! See how handy that is? Find some little country that hasn't done squat to ya, declare War, and screw the Constitution. Oh, yeah, and screw the taxpayers, and all the little people too.

How come CEOs don't have to give up their huge salaries and bonuses during "time of war"?

I posted a link to here on a forum I visit regularly. Your post was attacked by one of the regular Republican members there because of your reference to Rove as "KKKarl".
I weakly defended you as the links you included were the main point of me linking you. I do want you to know I like the way you post (thats why I read you daily). Keep "callin' 'em like you see 'em".

Hey, Rocky,

That's good. More people need to hear it. Don't worry about defending me. If that troll shows up, I'll be happy to put a knee in his nuts.
