Thought I got renditioned or something, didn't ya? Hahahaha! I know it's been a while since I wrote, but don't be silly -- the government doesn't give one fig about what a silly little blogger like me does. Why would they? It's not like the men in dark suits showed up at my Brooklyn studio in the dead of night last week. They didn't duct tape my hands and feet together and stuff me in the back of a van either. And they certainly didn't blindfold me and take me me deep into the bowels of Dick Cheney's underground network of caves to be reprogrammed or anything. Why on earth would they do such a thing? I mean really, what a ridiculous idea. Silly readers.

There, now that we've cleared that up, I just want to get a few things off my chest: First off, George W. Bush is the greatest president since the founding of our nation. Also, George W. Bush understands freedom better than anyone else on the planet. He's the most freedomest having believer in freedom ever to be free. And he doesn't think the Constitution is "just a goddam piece of paper" either, no matter what you hear. He treasures that sacred document as if it were holy. In fact, he sometimes takes it to bed just to cuddle with it, that's how much he loves it. And George W. Bush is really, really smart too. Don't forget that. Simply put, George W. Bush is Supreme Leader and Ruler of us all. Oh, and Dick Cheney does not condone torture. Also, cuddly as a kitten.

What? What are you all looking at? Like you haven't heard me say all this before?? Criminy.

So, the Bushies have massively and repeatedly infringed on the civil liberties and freedoms of all Americans by authorizing the NSA to spy on us eh? Shocker. I know, this type of news should solicit a fit of eye-bulging outrage from me, but I just can't muster it. I should though, because scary shit like this is happening too.

Predictably, Bush and his cohorts (Dick, I'm looking at you once again) have once again invoked 9/11 and national security to excuse these illegal actions. The Cheney administration has repeatedly claimed that these actions, whether spying on American citizens, conducting torture, or tracking high-level threat groups such as the Quakers or those pesky vegans, are justifiable in this new, post-9/11 world. They claim it's all necessary to keep us safe. They claim these actions and methods are protecting us and helping us win the war on terror, all while we slide down a very slippery slope.

And really, if that's the case, and these tools have helped so much in the fight, then why the hell does the administration's report card from the University of Keeping Us Safe look even worse than Dubya's marks from Yale?

Great post and good to see you back.
So, people aren't yet on the street (instead of striking because their salaries are only three times higher than that of those who are walking the bridges to work as we speak) - WHY AGAIN?

They're reading our emails alright, but I'm thinking they're also spiking the water with something called COMPLACENCY.

Wake up, goddamit! Why is nobody beating down that door and dragging him out of that big white house yet?
