    We all learn one day that few things which we brush aside without batting an eyelid as tin foil stuff are actually true.

      The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

      •  Then why did it happen? (none)
        Is it really the case that GWB wants dictatorial power, and, if so, that those who surround him are okay with that?

        Is it the case that it is just hubris and those who surround him are syncophants too compliant to point out the overreaching?

        Is it messianic self aggrandizing and those who surround him are caught up in his cult of personality?

        Or is there some greater disconnect here? Does GWB really believe so fervently and completely in his cause and in his crusade for it? Do those who surround him believe it as well? Do they believe that they have seen the face of evil and that these extraordnary measures are the only tools they have to defeat it? This is perhaps the scariest scenario of all.

          want unlimited money and power.  They figured they found a guy in Bush who could be both fervent and manipulated in his zeal, with a host of psychological Mommy and Daddy issues to keep the fires stoked as long as they need him.  The people in charge -- Carlyle Group, House of Saud, the American contractors -- are all about big money loans (IMF, World Bank) that are eventually leveraged into political and geographic control -- empire buildling.  I honestly don't think they give a rat's ass about Bush, and I don't think he has any idea what the rights and responsibilities of the American president are.
