Criminal Justice System

Power and pedophilia going hand in hand as it does in the Republican party, maybe it's time to reread the Second Amendment -- and take it to heart.

Say, where are the "values voters" on the issue of Republican sexual predators?

What Matt said:

One of the reasons that it's hard to make a story like predator Mark Foley and the House Republican cover-up stick is because there's no pre-set narrative that Republican leaders are very bad people. Republican leaders are creepy, weird, and perverted, seeking an authoritarian political system so that they don't have to deal with personal demons.

in the sandstone, compressed, hardened
in the stars made rocks made dust

who quits and dies to save life?
who marches in the decades?
who casts out light

Two oaths.

I took this one in February 1978.
"I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (OR AFFIRM) THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC; THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME; AND THAT I WILL OBEY THE LAWFUL ORDERS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE LAWFUL ORDERS OF THE OFFICERS APPOINTED OVER ME, ACCORDING TO REGULATIONS AND THE UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE. SO HELP ME GOD" Read below the fold...

All right. Now what?

Where do the Americans stand now?

Are there any real United States Citizens left, who understand the meaning of the oath, "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic"? Read below the fold...

Quote of the day

From Denny Hastert's favorite pedophile, Mark Foley (R-NAMBLA), as he instant messages:

strip down and get relaxed

Because it won't hurt a bit.

The torture, that is.

The destruction of the Constitution.

The detention of citizens without trial or habeas corpus.

The constant surveillance.

The camps.... Read below the fold...

The Magna Carta

Lotta good stuff in the Magna Carta. This clause caught my eye:

40. To no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay, right or justice.

Gosh, even Kings didn't have powers of indefinite detention without right of appeal. Well, leaving out that ugly little lettre de cachet episode before 1789.

We haven't just been unable to "keep" a Republic; we've thrown away the 800 years of the common law. Read below the fold...

Rep. Mark Foley (R-Pedophilia) FL Quits Race

Breaking on CNN so no links yet. He's the one who got caught with his winkie in the "send" button on an email exchange with a 16 year old (MALE--not that there's anything wrong with that) Congressional page. Read below the fold...
