    I love this one. I hate that America has allowed our (all of our) Constitutional rights to be trampled in it’s quest for artificial safety. We have become a nation of facists.

    One has to wonder if people won’t look back on this time much like we look back at Nazi Germany and ask “Why would anyone go along with this evil.” Why didn’t the American people tell the political class – NO!!!!

    Don’t get me wrong – I recognize that there is evil in the world and I want it stopped as much as the next person. But I’m not willing to turn a blind eye to the shortcuts we afford “Homeland Security”, The FBI, DEA, etc. They argue they need these extraordinary powers to keep us safe. I’m willing to tolerate more risk in order to fetter the government appropriately. We are under pseudo-martial law all the time now.

    And as always when lawyers are involved all common sense and reason will be disallowed.

    I sometimes criticize Ted for going over the top — I’m as liberal as they come, but he goes over the top. This one’s right on target, though.

    Well stated. A very clear and accurate assessment. It’s embarrassing at times to be an American, for reasons such as this.

    The Nazis failed, however Stalin and Mao did alright with their kangaroo courts and “legal” proceedings. They all have more in common with the Crusaders and inquisition. I’d say all dictatorships of mostly any kind are like that. We are approaching it in leaps and bounds. GWOT is a nice excuse for it it seems. Most people, 70% still go along with it.

    Prosecuting attorneys also lie. Along with the police and judge to incarcerate and even kill innocent people. No one ever goes after them for conspiracy and murder.

    Sometimes the only way to shock people out of complacency is to go over the top. Another is to switch roles.

    Keeping the torture up in Abu Gharib had nothing to do with Al Queada or Osama bin Ladin. It was only and excuse to destroy whole countries and perform infamies every bit as bad as the Germans and Russians invading Poland and Japan invading China.

    My God, man, you can’t be serious! A trial in which long beards and drones cannot be discussed is hardly worth having at all.

    I thought liberalism was all about going over the top.
    In any case, is Rall going to appear on Hannity again soon.

    And both sides also agreed to ban: judges, juries, trails and jails. Isn’t the American Justice system wonderful?
