CANADIAN ELECTION RESULTS

Canada hasn’t really shifted right, simply retired the long-ruling, scandal-plagued Liberals. It’s another minority government, for crying out loud! Stephen Harper won’t be able to get away with right-wing, Reform/Alliance radicalism; he’ll be brought down by the NDP and the Bloc, as quickly as they abandoned the Liberals in November. If this government lasts a year and a half, it’ll be a surprise.

DOMESTIC SPYING AND THE 4TH AMENDMENT

The Bushies are now saying that “reasonable” searches and seizures don’t need a warrant from a court. That really reveals what they think of our rights, that they think warrants are for “unreasonable” searches/seizures. Actually the Amendment outlaws unreasonable searches/seizures, requiring a warrant for all others – as a plain reading of the words indicates. The authorities must prove to a judge that the proposed search/seizure is reasonable – they may not simply assert or presume it. “Reasonable” equals “probable cause.”

Not that it’s hard to convince a judge to grant a search warrant in this country….

Ironically, if Republicans approached the Second Amendment the way they’re approaching the 4th, only members of “well-regulated militias” would have the right to bear arms!

“UNITARY EXECUTIVE,” NAZIS, AND SCALITO

The “unitary executive” theory the Bushies are pushing lately comes from Hitler’s political philosopher Carl Schmidt. In German it’s called Fuehrerprinzip, and it was the fig-leaf justification offered for Hitler to seize absolute power in 1933. And Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito supports it. Google “unitary executive” + nazi. It’s very opposed to the U.S. Constitution’s system of checks and balances.

Steal two elections, void the vote, lie us into war, enshrine Fuehrerprinzip…it all fits.

IMPEACH BUSH

Here’s a preview of what sounds like a perceptive article by a congresswoman who served on the Nixon committee, especially when she says Bush has virtually dared Congress to stop him from breaking the law.

Is anybody else disgusted by the use of corporate names in so many college football Bowl Games?!! Some don’t even have a ‘real’ name, just the corporation name!
