Powell is a war criminal, but on this matter he is correct.

Powell is a war criminal, but on this matter he is correct. Pat Mc-Crony & co., should pause for a minute and reflect about how bad they are when even confirmed, serial war criminals like Powell are calling them out. But, somehow, I doubt that any reflection or good sense will enter the Mc-Crony circle.



k&r. Summers & Geithner are parasitic slime. n/t

Happy to give credit where it is (hopefully!) due...

This sounds like a smart move by Obama & Holder. If Monday transpires as this article predicts, then the Obama administration will have taken a major step towards curtailing some of the worst abuses of the present iteration of the drug war. Of course, the ought to be much more done than just this. Sentence reductions are a good start, but they are not an endpoint as far as I am concerned. So though I am thankful for this bit of common sense, I expect more to come.


My (wait, no, OUR) solutions are the 4th, 5th, & 6th Amendments.

My (wait, no, OUR) solutions are the 4th, 5th, & 6th Amendments.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

It's not up to me (or any American) to devise solutions above and beyond this. The Constitution is already the Supreme Law of the Land. It's up to our government to abide by and uphold these laws. People who do otherwise are the real traitors.
