Bad Trains on The Fast Track
Guest Post by Man of American Dissent
Never mind going to Hell in a bucket or handbasket. Things seem to be on the TGV. The House and Senate gave a big thumbs up and Cheshire Cat smile to torture, indefinite detention and admission of coerced statements. The resident is expected to sign the bill (sans signing statement no doubt).
This legislation is so fundamentally wrong and Un-American that I do not even know where to begin when discussing it. Just when I was recovering from a Hardball hangover, I heard Christopher "Rabbit" Matthews jabbering on about how he and most Americans thought that there were times when torture and stuff is ok.
I've got "Breaking News" for Mr. Rabbitt and our "representatives". Torture is wrong. We're supposed to be the good guys. If we don't start walking some miles in those white cowboy boots, we're doomed.
I have one request. Please do whatever you can to get the Republicans and their LibermanOcratic counterparts out of office come November. If we are unable to do that I fear the worst is yet to come.
