  •  I'd love to see Gitmo closed. (13+ / 0-)

    I'd also like to see the entire war of terror scaled back dramatically. The Patriot act, Homeland Security, the Fusion centers and the TSA. They're all relics of the hysteria surrounding 9/11.

    Republicans ring hollow when they talk of fiscal cliffs. They're the ones who maxed out the nation's credit card with their unfunded wars and tax cuts. Maybe instead of raising their taxes we should just send  them a bill—payable on demand.

      There are times, after hearing session chatter or some really rabid crap out of that bunch, that I drift into a small grinning daydream of "what if" about that. What if the rabid bunch got a touch of the Patriot Act provisions we find so objectionable turned on them?

      Every signer, and I note many are "out of state," of those secession petitions on the no fly list? Computers secretly searched? E-mail tracked? The whole suite! Off to Gitmo until proven innocent?

      There are times I get a bit tired of honorable objection that carries our objections to that sort of un-American stuff even to those I so despise. Dammit!

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
