This thread is pretty scary! Thanks to GermanStar and FeelTheLove for the articles.

I agree with cmitch - Bush added a couple of members to the US Supreme Court, but hopefully the remaining appointees will maintain some level of sanity on there.

Essentially it means we will be living in the different country pretty soon.

If we aren't already.

Very scary.

People in this country need to start asking themselves why we have what looks like a coordinated attempt by the Executive Branch to remove our most basic rights. We hear nothing here from our supposed "libertarian" or our other poseur posters who claim to love the Constitution. Again I ask, WHY are they doing this?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Bushco is keeping a subjective list of those they deem to be either naughty or nice. I don't think I made the nice column.


Oh, and on a related topic, RE Koop's signature; here's a nifty little message in my MBSHOP PM box from back in 8/06:

Insulting OD mod

For insulting the mod of the OD forum by calling him a "dumbass", and for re posting the insult even after the mod removed it from the post, you will receive 3 infraction points.

Refrain from insulting mods in the future or a ban will result.
-------

This infraction is worth 3 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.


That must mean I'm 3 points ahead.
Only three points for "dumbass"?

Boy I guess calling him a pump jockey must have been triple point, triple score.

You got Hatty all worked up with that one. He even showed up here lookin' for you. "Pump jockey", that's right up there with "merkin"... You're a bad man.

Ooops the secret is out now. There are two Constitutions -- one for us god fearing red blooded merikans, and one for the rest of you commie pinkos.

The good guys (that's the ones making the rules) just want to make sure they can protect our asses from you liberals who to want to surrender merika to our enemies.

I told him if he wanted to fight he could meet me at the bike rack after school.
