I'm watching the Kagan Hearings and Lindsey Graham had praise for the nominee. He praised her for not supporting Habeaus Corpus for Bagram detainees.
Of all the things she has done in her life, this is thing thing in wich the Republicans can praise. It's disgusting!
Conservatives are so fucking evil. We can give 2 trillion dollars to war but we have no money for unemployed citizens. It is so sick that they represent our country.
What is worse though is what we've gotten from Obama. Graham said, "We've gotten what I expected from President Obama. Some people are surprised but if you are you weren't listening carefully".
I'm sure the Senator meant to imply that he is some crazy extemist liberal. This Supreme Court nominee, really the one argument left to defend the President, shows what we all have known for some time... There was no difference between McCain and Obama.
We cannot be distracted from all the obfuscation. Corporations now dominate our lives. We wake up and labor for their profit. We pay taxes to a Corporate owned and dominated government. Corporations over-exploit our natural resources. They destroy our environment. They start wars. They are killing us, and when they are not literally killing the people of the world they are transforming us into slaves.
I'm just sick and had to get something out. This is just sad.
We do get distracted in the forest. The slightest difference between the parties gets magnified. Look at the results though. It is not a sorry coincidence the Democrats need 60 votes to pass anything in the Senate but the Republicans need 50. We are being played. Not just by our representatives but the puppeteers behind them.
This is why the Tea Party can gain such strong support from anarchists. They see our government is evil and would prefer no government to this. Government could be the locus for such good in our world, but how can it be now? How after Citizens United can there be hope for the future of our country?
And after such a disasterous opinion, after such a ultra-consertive Court, after Stevens leaves, Obama nominates Kagan?!
For those that say a challenge is insane, that it will not succeed, that it will hand the country over to the Republicans....my reply is so the fuk what. We have a conservative as President. A man that believes COIN is better than Biden's counter-terrorism...A man that will sell-out health care for the American people to the pharmaceutical industry...
But the Supreme Court! We must not have another conservative on the Court! WTF do you think Kagan will become? She is a corporatist.
We are at War and there are two sides; Corporations and the People. We know what side the President and this administration is on. What side are you on?
