  •  Impeachment??! Can't have that! Not even for War (5+ / 0-)

    Criminals. Why not? Well, lately it's come up again that "frontrunner candidates-" and John Edwards in particular- think that it
    shuts down all business on the Hill.

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.

    •  You mean, shut down the important business (6+ / 0-)

      of the Military Commissions Act? Of more off-the-books emergency funding for wars of empire and illegal global spying? Of immunizing telecommunications companies that broke the law? Of bailing out financial megacorporate crooks? So much important business to take care of! Why would you want to put a stop to any of that?

      Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

    •  Yabbut... they forget.... (6+ / 0-)

      We who lived through that Clinton fiasco remember how short a time it took to get the impeachment process done..., and while it was happening, legislation STILL made its way through Congress.  Not all business stopped.

      That whole "It'll tie up Congress and we're in the middle of a campaign!!!" (said in an hysterical tone of voice, like Nancy-impeachment-is-off-the-table Pelosi's) nonsense was a ruse to make people STFU & stop demanding impeachment.  After all, even most Democrats had voted in favor of Dumbya & Dickie's illegal and unconstitutional wars.

      I never liked Edwards, and for a year or so I couldn't figure out why I didn't like him.  He had shifty little beady eyes that zipped back and forth in their sockets and his tongue kept zipping in and out of his mouth like a snake's as he stumbled with searching for the "right" words to say if he didn't have a pat memorized answer.  Those were his lying "tells," as I figured out after a while.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
