Wow-being above the law is so cool! Can we do that too?
I am just way, way impressed at how rove and bush and cheney and all those patriotic leaders just thumb their noses at the law--that just totally RAWKS!!! You gotta admire them, just so bold about it and in your face and go fuck yourself when it comes to such silly trivialities as laws, they make us all proud with their total disregard of laws, national or international.

Now how can we do it too? Our elected leaders have shown us the way, simply ignore laws, all laws, any laws, and proceed as usual, what could be simpler or more effective? This means you could light up a smoke in a restaurant, or a joint even, or a crack pipe by God. This means all girls under the age of 16 are now 16! This means we too can profit from the deaths of a million people, jack up prices at the pump and make billions, send soldiers off to die merely to enrich our bank accounts! Anything goes!

If our leaders do it, we can do it too folks, get with it, do your own thing, tune in, turn on, drop out, make millions while others starve, the joker's wild, grab all the gusto you can, laws be damned, laws are for chumps, laws are only there to be ignored.

So starting Monday, I am no longer obeying any laws, anyone can do it, and just like dick and dubya, I'll never face prosecution for my crimes, because, there are no crimes when you can just tell Lady Justice to go fuck herself.

1. Well, as J.R. said some time back
He was ok with there being a dictator, as long as he was the dictator.

Too bad, only a very few people were listening.

4. I'm going to start citing
EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. If it works for our employees it should
be allowed for the employers (We the People)!

8. We are all consumers not just me
it was a joke. If we are all consumers does that mean everyone
should vote for the consumer advocate. I didn't think so.
Sorry if joke offended you or wasn't politically correct
enough for you.
