180. My loyalty to the Constitution is exactly why I am upset
with the RW and with this administration. How can the RW profess to be such "patriots" then be so willing to throw their rights away? Not me, buddy. All ten of those Amendments and all of the Articles are precious heirlooms. The Amendments that follow to refine and extend liberty and justice are icing on the cake, to be equally protected IMHO.

How can the administration purport to "export democracy" when their every action demonstrates that they are destroying exactly that at home. It's not as if they're exactly covering their tracks. Over the last thirtyish years, since Papi took over the CIA, they've gotten more crooked, but more amateurish, more arrogant -- and more sloppy. The fingerprints are all over the place, just as if you'd given a bunch of kids ice cream and driven them home in your expensive car. Only this expensive car happened to be our country.

What a f*cking mess. Big eyes and "I didn't do it" ain't cuttin' it. Just like there is a limit to how many sticky ice-cream fingers one can load into a back seat, there are only so many stick ice-cream fingers in Defense, the CIA or anywhere else that would have motive or opportunity to make a certain string of messes since Papi and his boys took over.

Indeed, those safeguards you spoke of were put in place then and I must believe that they are still in place now to protect both intelligence and physical materiel. (Unless a very few neocon insiders who've already been named elsewhere were able to bypass them. Think "missing nukes".) To hear propaganda to the contrary isn't just a red flag. It should be an entire fireworks display to the wary.

Just a theory, but I don't think it's mine alone.
