I wish I could go on vacation.

What is with the King Georges and their vacations? In the '90's when we told the people of Iraq that we would help them fight if they rose up against Saddam guess where King George I was, that's right he was on vacation. And then during another supposed "major turning point" in the Iraqmire that he lied us into, King George II goes on vacation.
He spent 60% of his first term on vacation, and I think he's going to fall into the same category again. I wish I could take a vacation. Or how about those 130,000 or so troops fighiting his war in Iraq doesnt he owe it to them to not take a vacation until he has a solid plan for getting them the fuck out of there. Maybe we should be thankful he goes on vacation so much, that's just less time he's around to fuck shit up. Or maybe it's just better if junior is out of the way so the people actually in charge can run shit.
All the Bush lovers yelling at Cindy Sheehan for being in Crawford maybe they should yell at the guy that is the reason for her being there. Dont you think it's a bit odd and a bit disrespectful to those fighting his war that he's on vacation every other fucking month.

American Legion Post Removed

After receiving information on the Hypocrisy of the AL, and also reading an article on how they are following the Repug party line and declaring war on war protesers, I have decided to remove the post heaping praise upon the organization. I am now have a stated policy of indifference and nearly apathy towards their organization. I will not pay any more dues to the AL, not because they dont agree with war protestors, but because they equate protestors to being the enemy, and I will not support such actions as equating American Citizens engaged in legal and rightful protest for redress to being the enemy.

What about the oath???

The link above goes to an article explaining that a senator in California wants an investigation of the National Guard for spying on its own citizens released to the public. If this isn't proof of the encroaching police state I dont know what is. Citizens of the state, funded by the state, spying on their own fellow citizens.
This is a symptom of a larger problem. You see, there are people following these orders that took an oath to protect and defend the constitution of their states, and if they are in the Reserves or Active duty, the constitution of the US. Every constitution either has implicit or implied rights to assemble for a redress of grievances and privacy. By these Citizen Soldiers following orders to spy on their own citizenry, the citizenry that foots their bills, they have violated that oath to protect and defend. They have become the domestic enemy that our freedoms must be protected from. I take the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies foreign and domestic very seriously and very literally. Enemies of the Constitution are not the people that attack us with bombs and guns, but the people that attack our freedoms by usurption, these people are more dangerous by far, because what are we in America if we don't live by the ideas we were founded to uphold.

These people are trying to blur the line of the rational, so that we just assume posse commitatus doesn't matter. They keep trying to stretch the law and blur the line so we just assume it's normal to have the military used as the nations or states police force. And people will just keep accepting this as long as they are scared of the encroaching outside "threat." Fear is creating the justification in the minds of the people to propel this agenda from the top down. Working off of their premise, every American citizen is the enemy, everyone is a terrorist or a suspect. Why else would they send OUR OWN army against us? Eventually someone from the inside is going to grow the fucking balls to stand up and say that is an UNLAWFUL order according to their oath and they will not follow it. You cannot get in trouble for refusing an UNLAWFUL ORDER.

AMERICAN CITIZENS are not the enemy and until the US Government declares, officially and for legitimate reasons, martial law I dont want to see member of the US Army used as a police force. Thats not our job. We are trained to kill and break things, we should not be used against our fellow citizens for any reason.

The problem is the ordinary man doesnt care because he thinks this is keeping him safe from terrorists. As he stands next to his SUV with the Yellow ribbon magnets wearing a "These Colors Dont Run" t-shirt, he will say, "I dont care what the government does, so long as the terrorists dont get us." Not realizing while he's looking outside for something coming in, the real threat is already inside, destroying everything America once stood for. Freedom to assemble, protest, and protection of the private citizens life from encroachment by a Big Brother system run amok.
