Hey Robin!

Sorry about your... you know... country and constitution all that. I suspect if Amnesty USA follows the rules of other national Amnesty groups they will have a policy of not directing complaints to their own government for fear of persecution. Try here or here.

I think the blogosphere needs to come up with a new catchphrase. Maybe can we call it fascism yet? or perhaps slouching towards fascism.

There's no doubt that 9-28 will be seen as more of an attack on America than 9-11 was in a few decades time.

I am as ashamed as you are to have the same geographic heritage as folks like Mike Fitzpatrick. How I wish we had someone in Congress with the guts to stand up to these champions of "security."

Who knows, maybe we'll have someone like that soon...

Hey, David :) Yeah, there's no doubt in my mind that we're living in a fascist state. I had the same thought you did about 9/28. My mother beat us both to the punch. She was at work in a news blackout during the events of 9/11. Her very first response to the news was "I hope our response isn't worse than the attacks." Of course, it has been.

Howard: It's hard to say how that election will go. Fitzpatrick does a good job of positioning himself as a populist even though he's a rigid corporatist.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
