A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Requiem for America

Not yet. There's still hope Dubya will be impeached.
Besides--Blogger won't let me upload it, for some reason.

Instead, consider this:
Habeas corpus is suspended.
Torture is now the law of the land.

War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength
And Big Brother is watching you.

The Democrats sat silent. The Republicans who knew better put up only a token protest.

Dante's Inferno posited that in the centre of Hell there was a frozen lake, in which the souls who had betrayed their fellowman were imprisoned, alive.

It's going to be a crowded place in a couple of decades.

This is why I maintain a fairly scathing stance on Dubya. Every time I think the man can't sink any lower, he does.

He has effectively voted himself imperial power by fiat, without any of the responsibility. The kings of England had to sign warrants to have someone tortured. They had to answer for their judgement. Bush has managed to escape even this. Having been told outright by the Supreme Court that his torture, infinite detention, and kangaroo courts were illegal, he's now made them law.

Let freedom ring.

Thanks to Raincoaster and Jesus' General.
