I also wanted to discuss America's largest and growing Community the Latino's as Obama and McCain both addressed them yesterday. McCain the idiot ignored it but was interrupted four times by hecklers while when Obama addressed them he was received warmly. later Latino Reps were saying 71% are behind Obama and only 26% back McCain! It looks better every day but you have to wonder what underhand crap the right is going to pull to stay in control?
Sadly our uselessness has to be discussed! Democrats in Congress are still reeling over the lip they got yesterday from the Bush administration's key experts on torture. Vice President Dick Cheney chief of staff David Addington was so disdainful that some are wondering if he can be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Of all the hearings I've attended since I started serving on the Judiciary Committee four years ago, I have never felt more strongly that a witness was lying," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said in an interview. "At the end of the day I'm not sure how much we can do -- we can't prove what he says he doesn't recollect."
Here's Chairman John Conyers trying to elicit Addington's legal justification for Bush's directives on harsh interrogation techniques
Conyers: Do you feel that the unitary theory of the executive allows the president to do things over and above the stated law of the land? * Empty BS:Addington: The Constitution binds all of us, congressman, the president, all the U.S. members of Congress, all of the federal judges. We all take an oath to support and defend it. I frankly don't know what you mean by the Unitary Theory of Government. I don't -- Conyers: Have you ever heard of that theory before? Addington: Oh I have, I've seen it in the newspapers all the time -- Conyers: Do you support it? Addington: I don't know what it is. Conyers: You don't know what it is. Addington: No, and it's always described as something Addington's the great, you know -- Conyers: I see. read the full report if you can stand it
We are Friggen Powerless to stop what is being openly and egregiously done to us! AAARRRGGGHHH!
