  •  This is the single worst thing (2+ / 0-)

    Congress has proposed doing in decades.

    It is hardly unique, thought. It is part of a trend that began with the War On (Some) Drugs and which accelerated with the Patriot Act.

    It is also what you get when you don't fucking haul the war criminals and torturers out by the scruffs of their necks and subject them to a public trial so that everyone in your society understands that these things are wrong. We had a chance to reverse the trend towards a police state, and Obama refused to try.

    Having failed to prosecute government-sanctioned torturers, rapists, murderers, and fomenters of aggressive war, can we really be surprised that Congress is moving forward with consolidating the police state?

    This is our time. We can do this. We can change the world.
