Seems like everybody and their brother are linking to the Associated Press run-down of our curtailed rights that appeared in Newsday.
I’d like to think that this will go somewhere…that the collective outrage of the population will shake the foundations of the Bush “presidency”…but you all know as well as I that nothing will come of it, except maybe another shiny bauble thrown to distract us: another scandal, another “leak”, another season of American Idol.
Bread and Circuses, folks. Bread and Circuses.
The American people have the attention spans of goldfish, and the political awareness of a gnat. Given the fact that we rolled over and put up with an illegal coup without complaining (or have you forgotten that the Emperor Has No Votes?) we can hardly be expected to get upset when our Constitution gets just a bit more crumpled later down the same road.
You’ve got nobody to blame but yourself, America. You clearly communicated back in November of 2000 that you had no outrage left within you. You clearly communicated that you were complacent sheep…it’s a bit late to act surprised when the folks that you let walk into power are now trampling on the very document that you told them you didn’t care about in the first place.
9/11 has become our own Reichstag Fire. Go ahead and do a google search on that, America, since I’m sure most of you have no bloody idea what I’m talking about.
