    •  True. I was advocating that... (1+ / 0-)

      ... clear back in '06, '07, '08, and I also advocated impeachment..., and was ignored, of course.

      At this stage of the game, Obama & his DoJ will never do the sensible thing and put those lying war criminals on trial.  It would now spill over to himself and his regime full of old Bushista appointees and retained personnel who are following the same illegal and unconstitutional policies as the Bushistas, so to condemn his predecessors also condemns himself.

      Ergo, I'll take what I can get and continue to advocate for all the rights of We The People to be returned to us by repealing all the illegal and unconstitutional "temporary" legislation that took away our rights in the first place.  Why these pieces of shite legislation continue to be extended is beyond my ability to comprehend ... unless ... the "beings" [big banks, Casino Wall Street, corporate masters] behind the public face of our government who are following the "secret interpretations of secret laws and secret legal interpretations of existing laws" really are the ones pulling everyone's puppet strings and they intended to get us all used to not having our right by continuing to extend the expiration dates..., and then make the changes permanent and change the constitution to suit their whims and finally set up an official fascist dictatorship.

      I'm old, so I am no longer sure our rights will be returned to us before I die (our constitutional rights have been gone over a decade already, and I consider that a crime in and of itself), but an old woman can dream for a return to normalcy with an official return to constitutional and legal norms with giving us back all of our rights and our habeas corpus rights..., can't she?

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

    •  Frankly, I would have settled for a truth (0+ / 0-)

      and reconciliation commission with a promise of no jail time for Bush, Rummy, Yoo, Ashcroft, and Cheney.  At least, with decent restitution for their victims, and all of them getting felony records.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
