Let Them Eat Candy (Jason Miller)

Of War Criminals, Enablers, and the Decreasing Significance of We the People

Jason Miller -- World News Trust

Remember the archaic notion that freedom of speech and peaceable assembly are guaranteed by a document the Bush Regime is rendering as quaint as the Geneva Conventions?

Here is a reminder:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Since the leader of the free world has established a consistent pattern of over-riding, circumventing, or simply ignoring both the Constitution and judicial rulings, the hallowed basis for our Constitutional Republic has nearly been reduced to a God-damn piece of paper.

As the mass murderer guilty of egregious war crimes descended upon Kansas City in Air Force One last week, approximately 450 of us dissidents gathered to exercise what First Amendment rights we still have.

Bush and his entourage were arriving to raise funds for Jim Talent, Missouris junior U.S. Senator who is up for re-election in November and who has marched in virtual lock-step with the Bush Regime.

Where was this revolting spectacle to take place?

Envision a setting encompassing picturesque multi-million dollar villas, sprawling lush lawns, and the obscenely expensive retail establishments of the world renowned Country Club Plaza.

A study conducted at the University of Chicago in the 1950s called this corridor "the Ward Parkway and Mission Hills Gold Coast."
