20. Bush's really throwing his weight around now, isn't he?
Apparently he doesn't view any obstacles to his complete control of everything, eventually. How unprepared we all have been for this!

Nixon's puppet Chilean mass murderer/dictator Augusto Pinochet had similar ambitions when he told people "not a blade of grass moves without my permission."

From the article:
The U.S. government has given groups such as the ATAC until a week from Monday to register concerns about the proposal.
How is it he can "give" them a week? Who is he to "demand" anything from Canadians? Christalmighty.
