Default Memo from the National Affairs Desk

There is much wreckage in the Fast Lane these days. The wrecked attempts at a new world order lie alongside the discarded remains of the American Dream. Idealists drive by at full speed, trying to ignore the grim, meat-hook realities that lay in wait for them just around the next bend. The shanty-towns around here have sprung up almost over night and there is no work for these wretched outcast souls who had to leave home. Poverty is the language here and hunger is the way of life. A new dawn is rising and the old ways are passing away for life to be given to the latest reincarnation of the American Dream. Not even the rich are safe from it, and people are looking for reasons to ignore the change that is fast approaching. The smart cant understand it-don’t try to understand it-and the dumb ones sell books and self help seminars on how to make the most of the shift. The rich and powerful see it coming, and the sound of their fear is stomping out a beat that will be felt across the country.

The sound of the fear of rich people is not to be ignored in troubled times, for it always precedes a revolution of some sort. Whatever the revolution may be about, no matter how small and insignificant, there is always change lying in wait when the rich suddenly become anxious and confused. When the Rich and Powerful become confused they start acting like Wild Animals, beasts of the earth, functioning only on the most basic of survival skills; and that is the situation in America today.

Five years of the Bush Theocracy have pushed America from a safe, prosperous nation at peace to a broke, depleted nation in a war we cant win. Look out, Bubba, because the days of speaking your mind are gone, and the police state has moved in. In the last three years we have had an inordinate amount of legislation passed through that gives echoes eerily reminiscent of the pre-war 1930’s Germany. We are fast on our way to becoming a Nazi-police state, indeed some say we are already there. But, worry not for the electorate has spoken, 55 million citizens gave their full throated support to George Bush in the last election. 55 million, terrified Jesus freaks decided that it was important enough to vote this man back into office. I suppose that’s true, though, they were right. After all, it is far more important for there to be laws against sodomy than there be food on the table of the middle class. After all, if the will of these godless Sodomites isn’t broken now, they will surely undermine the American way of life, just look at Ancient Rome…they had no rules against fags fucking in the streets, and they fell. Alexander the Great was Gay and he never did anything good for the American people or Western Capitalism.

But as I said earlier, there is change in the air, and the powerful know it. If all that the warmongering propaganda, all the falsely inspired forced patriotism brought in the first four years was 55 million votes, in the next election it will only bring 30 million votes, however an electorate comprised of the freaks, alternatives, gays, poor, pissed of military, liberals, anarchists, and godless heathens will compromise close to fifty or sixty million, and with one loud voice, they will shout: “NO MORE!” which is why there is scurrying today on Madison Avenue and on Pennsylvania Avenue. The beat of the scuffling rich is growing louder…Can you hear it?

Change is in the air friends, its coming on like the eruption of Vesuvius, and I as your National Affairs Correspondent will be right here, riding my Silver Bullet down the fast lane, bringing you the whole story for better or worse, whatever it may be…

Hey!!!

I do believe that I own rights on all references to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

Also I take issue with:

If indeed that were the case, then I wouldn't have to put up with Liberals whining and whining and whining. As it is the Thought Police have not yet come to be. However, since Socialism (the one form of government that eventually recinds the People's God-given right to free speech) is on the other end of the political spectrum than Conservatism, I'll just chalk that up to drug induced, empty rhetoric. So I guess this column is Gonzo, then.

When the government can target your library records, seeing what books youve checked out, and red-flagging those that get books they dont like....that seems to be somewhat of an impunement on my first ammendment rights, as is the Patriot Act (regardless of whether or not its successful). "Safety" has been exchanged for "security" and it has come at the price of the constitution.

Socialism, Liberalism, Conservatism...it doesnt matter, "Those who are willing to sacrifice their basic liberties to assure their security", Benjamin Franklin once wrote, "deserve neither."

Wow...the Federal Government has been monitoring Library Activity for years. Who's to say Libraries weren't instituted for the Government to have a conduit specifically designed for monitoring citizens' reading habits in the first place?? Who's to say that Ben Franklin and Andrew Carnegie weren't aliens trying to initiate the great takeover of Earth with the establishment (Franklin) and endowments(Carnegie) of libraries??

Still, it's the Commies that have cut off Free Speech. Each and every time. North Korea, Vietnam, the former USSR, the former DDR, Cuba, China...Commies don't let dissidents speak without eventually making them disappear. It's a proven fact.

What isn't proven or even logical is this thinking that monitoring people's reading habits will lead to oppression. If that was the case, it'd be much more cost effective for the government to simply remove the books they don't wish people to read. Unless of course authors like Dante Alghieri and Milton were actually Republican Double Agents...writing those books hundreds of years ago with advanced knowledge of the database and tracking capabilities that we'd have today and those books were only written to dupe Liberals into checking them out of Libraries so they can be put on the list of the first people to be abducted when the Republican-Brokered Alien Takeover Of The World starts.

Mac...if you're going to keep smoking that shit, the least you can do is pass it...j/k

I'm not so sure about the Constitution in itself, but it does violate the freedom for which the country stands. Let us call to mind the words of Benjami Franklin.

Ehhhh, I'd just go with instead of j/k. j/k kinda kills the whole Gonzo thing.

To the question, absolutely not. There was nothing within the confines of the constitution with regard to the miniature holocaust brought upon the native tribes to the midwest and west either, but they went ahead and stretched this little prison colony across the land, from sea to shining sea, didn't they?

At the same time, it should be also noted that our main enemy at that time was the British Navy. Getting the Fleet from the North Sea or wherever they came from all the way to the shores of the American East Coast took months and we saw them coming miles away.

Similarly, terrorists boarded a plane in Boston and it reached NYC in less than an hour, I think. Of course Liberals bemoan the 09-11 attack as an excuse for the war on terror, instead of understanding that it's a justification for it. Are things going perfectly?? Well I guess not. Kinda hard to picture how they would.

I mean, it's not like Osama Bin Laden, this Saudi billionaire who has lived a life of priviledge that was handed to him by his father, is simply going to come out from the rock he's hiding under and say "Oh, man...Vietnam War Hero John Kerry?! I give up. I didn't mean it, please don't kill me." However, if you read the editorial page, Liberal Sheep like Molly Ivins would have you believe that that is exactly what would happen if John Kerry were President.

I'm here to tell you it wouldn't. Terrorists hated America before Bush, they'll hate us after. It's quite all right for anyone who wants to to sit on their ass, pretend everything is lovely and wait for some terrorist, be they Arabic or otherwise nukes their town. That's quite an extreme example but I'd say that these are extreme times.

Of course, noone's talked about Bill Clinton's assassination attempt on Saddam in February of 1998 when he bombed the shit out of a bunker that "intelligence" had told him Saddam was located in. Well, there have been the occasional people who walk into, "they didn't start a ground war" trap, at which point I ask, "why even do it?? If you're not going to finish the job and those twenty something warheads cost over $2 Million dollars a piece, why not just sell those and use the money to bolster government programs that are failing and in dire need of an influx of capital??"

The common response is, "duhhhhh, what??"

Either way, with the exception of Benedict Arnold, the founding fathers knew who their enemy was, they knew when they were coming, and they had time to prepare. Those are luxuries that we don't appear to have now, do we?

Late.

I didnt know if you were Jewish, you fucking pig...


As far as the question goes, Indian internment was wrong, and I think we all agree on that one, but you cant really compare the war of 1812, Indian internemtn etc. to the war on terror. Thecountry has changed too much, and since then, thanks to people on both sides of the aisle, there has been little or no constitutional basis for anything theyve done in the name of freedom. FDR's new deal required activist judiciairies in order to get the job done, Nixon...well....Fuck Nixon, and then with Bush you have the Patriot Act.

My point is this, Both the left adn teh right hold the founding fathers on a high plateau, butwhy dont they hold the IDEAS of the founding fathers on thatsame plateau? Where the fuck is the constitution?

Exactly...which is why there's nothing about it in the Constitution. Yes, things are done outside of the Constitution's framework. That doesn't necessarily mean they're bad.

As to where the Constitution is, it's in the Library of Congress. As for the spirit of your question...it's probably printed on the toilet paper in the bathrooms in the Capitol.

Well, then if that were true, we would get rid of the following things if we felt like it becasue they are part of the constitution but do we really need them anymore?

1. Electoral College- after the 2000 election, its pretty obvious that we dont need THAT anymore

2. The 13, 14, or 15 ammendments-I mean, we COULD have slaves again couldnt we?

3. the second ammendment- do we REALLY need guns?

4. the 25 ammendment- As it turns out, the Vp cand ecide when he wants to President at anytime, and there doesnt need to be any mechanism for proper Presdiential Recusal...


Not that I agree one way or the other with any of these things, but when you start deciding what to throw away from the constitution and what to keep, we get into pretty deep waters....do we not?
