A Bit Of News For Super Bowl Sunday

I’m getting ready to hunker down and watch the Seahawks win their first Super Bowl ever (oh please, oh please, oh please).  It should be exciting.  So instead of providing any useful commentary on our current slide towards fascism, I’ll just direct you to a few of my favorite articles of the day.

If we thought the fight against deregulation by the FCC allowing for yet more media consolidation was a tough one, this should have us all up in arms.  Corporate America’s next target is the Internet.  The End Of The Internet? By Jeff Chester.

Neil Shakespeare gives us a glimpse into Bush’s plans (or pipe dream) for after he leaves office (the fact that he’s thinking about it should give us little hope that he actually will), include (ironically) a think tank.  What?

More trouble for Scooter Libby and Karl Rove!  It looks as if the CIA was in fact making concerted efforts to conceal Valerie Plame’s identity when she was callously and tactically outed by the Bush regime.

Some great toons collected by Bob Geiger.

And last but not least, with news last week that Bush wants to turn the Secret Service, or SS if you will, into his own private federal police force with jurisdiction wherever he deems necessary, we now find out that he’s mulling over his right to order killings on US soil.  It shouldn’t be shocking, yet it is.

Just when you were asking yourself again, "How the hell could these people become scarier?" They let you know. This gets 5 HOLYSH!TS! from Rory.

Right? And we thought holding enemy combatants indefinitly without due process was bad. I guess this is the answer, just shoot to kill and then there won't be all that ruckus from the ACLU crowd.
