Is The Doctrine Behind the Bush Presidency Consistent with a Democratic State?:

Americans need to decide whether we are still a country
of laws - and if we are, we need to decide whether a President
who has determined to ignore or evade the law has not acted
in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive
of constitutional government.

Robert Scheer: Rendering Unto Syria:

What an outrage for the president to invoke the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights in his address
to the United Nations, a day after a Canadian government
commission accused the U.S. of rendering a Canadian
to Syria for torture. Did no one on his staff inform
the president that Article 5 of that declaration explicitly
states, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to
cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”?

the skinhead look for suits and ties and softer rhetoric, our
Neo Cons have moved from left to hard right wrapped in
burkas made of the American flag. Continue

Like Taking Candy From A Baby

By Manuel Valenzuela

Knowing the absolute ignorance, gullibility and lack of
critical thinking of the American masses, those in power
are able, once more, in what has become all too familiar
throughout the annals of history, to skew the decision,
