Let Me Get This Straight

The same Administration that, in late 2001,consigned the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution to the ash-heap of history with the euphemistically-titled "USA PATRIOT Act" actually balked at sending Federal troops into Lackawanna, New York to arrest some terrorism suspects because they felt it would violate Posse Comitatus?

Amazing but true, dear readers. The same regime that spied on you, that eavesdropped on you, that arrogated to itself the power to arrest you without warrant, charges or trial shied away from fulfilling the darkest fantasies of right-wing militia and survivalist freaks?

Strange but true.

Stay tuned, folks; we're going to see a lot more raw sewage vomiting out of the cesspool that was the George W Bush Administration.
