More Torture!

Torture, is this what we want? Sydney Blumenthal writes a great article succintly describing the curent state we find ourselves via the thugs in the White House and Congress.

Is this how you want your country to act? Is this how you want our soldiers treated? Has anyone heard of the Golden Rule? When will this stop? When you demand it from your elected officials in Washington. They work for us, remember? If they refuse to do what we say is the right thing, time to pack their bags, kick them to the curb. Now they are trying to dump habeas corpus, the very foundation of legal rights in this country. Not only dump it but make it retroactive as to cover the butts of the people who gave already committed and continue to participate in TORTURE. Which part of this don't the American people understand? This compromises everything about who we are as a nation, irrevocably changing our position as a 'free country'. This must end NOW. Today, call your representatives and senators in office and tell them to STOP NOW! Here's a link that explains WHY.

When is enough enough for you?

Watertiger has a great post up on this over at fdl. Please read it. Read what he links to, it is worth the effort. Please let your concern and outrage boil up into action. If you are not sick to your stomach about this, your are definitely not paying attention.
I want my country back!! Do you?

I've been busy emailing people about this for the past week. While the press only presented an argument over how much torture is enough torture (bad new on its own )and the so-called opposition sat on their hands and seemed gleeful that Bush had to "compromise", no one with a wide audience it seemed to me was talking about the loss of habeas corpus. They are not only shredding the Constitution, they are repealing the Magna Carta as well and attemptint to put us back into the dark ages.

Sorry for the typos. I make mistakes when I'm really angry about something.

Did you see Keith Olbermann's commentary on Bush trying to blame Clinton for 911? It's here:

Wow! We must be on the same wavelength. I just posted an essay on torture on my blog, too! By the way, yours is excellent!
