I wanted to title this post "Screw You" but I felt like that was a bit inappropriate since it winds up on the front page of so many other blogs, only it actually WAS totally appropriate as a description of the Bush Administration's view of Law in America.
I'm disgusted and I don't know what to do.
Why aren't Impeachment Proceedings raging forward in Congress?
This President and his minions have simply flipped off the notion of Justice enshrined in the Constitution. The Justice Department is now simply a political enforcement arm of the worst clique within the Republican Party, bringing ludicrous prosecutions against Democratic enemies and sweeping corruption investigations of Republicans into the compost pit.
Evidence is destroyed routinely. Subpoenas are simply ignored. The Rule of Law has no meaning.
George W. Bush, in the biggest screw up of recent Presidential memory, simply refused to speak under oath and without the accompaniment of the man behind the curtain (Mr. Cheney) when asked why he ignored the screaming Presidential Daily Briefing with the title, "Bin Laden Determined to attack within the United States."
"I don't know, I don't Remember, I can't recall," is the mantra for all members of the Bush Administration and Republicans everywhere, including their current crop of Presidential contenders.
So now...Under a Court order to preserve evidence in the CIA torture case, we find that the video tapes were simply destroyed.
"SCREW YOU, America"...Love George
