    THESE issues require hours and hours of discussion and we get crickets on WMD and Katrina? Blatant political posturing posing to revv up the base and provide election fodder -- Republican-run Congress in action. Hell, if I were a mainstream Republican I would be embarassed!

      I wonder, if the flag-burning law passed, what would happen if a Federal Employee witnessed a higher-up burning a flag?

      It appears to me that when a dictatorship is in full development, as we are witness, that all this high-falutin' rigor and dance on non-issues just plays like "making the boss (The People) think we are busy." Is this the scene of the Roman Emperor playing his fiddle while all Rome burned?

      From all appearances, there is no need for the representation to listen to The People since we are already subject to a dictatorship, and Congress is quite sure the same technique of busywork will cover all their mischief next November, as they are actually awaiting the day that the vote will no longer be necessary... or was that 2000?

      I think the NSA has all the phones and finances of the press and of the members of congress. Pulling their short hairs means the duty of heroism falls to the guy(s) gal(s) on the street.

      San Diego's elections are a fraud. When are the netroots going to take this bull by the horns and demand a recount?

      We are not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy. The gate crashers need to organize.

      Moderation in everything, especially moderation.

        and its swell Ceballos decision last month, if a federal employee saw a higher-up burning a flag, raping an underage boy, killing him and then eating his freshly barbecued flesh  -

        - he couldn't report him.
