It should come as no surprise that FCC Chair and Republican political appointee/operative Kevin Martin has refused to allow the FCC to investigate the illegal wiretapping of law-abiding American citizens by the Bush-Cheney junta. She's too busy making sure the parts of human anatomy that religious extremists consider shameful remain fully covered on the commercial broadcast and basic cable channels. If things were going as our Founders intended, Congress would step in to exercise some kind of oversight to protect our basic rights and liberties, but the Democratic majority in Congress appears to be paralyzed by the fear of appearing to oppose or question the Bush-Cheney junta's brilliantly fascist and fictional War On Terrah.
George Bush is against government spending when it helps middle and low income families maintain health insurance for their children. He is in favor of government spending when it is to be wasted on a hopelessly futile, unjust war that he dishonestly misrepresented to a skeptical nation in order to obtain its assent to [attempt to] wage.

The Post informs us today that the US State Department has issued a promise to monitor its Blackwater security mercenaries more closely as they attempt to ensure the safety of US diplomats in a hostile civil war zone with bullets. Blackwater corporation is privately owned by wealthy donors to the Bush-Cheney junta, which is why it comes as no surprise that security cameras will soon be installed in all mercenary combat vehicles.

MSNBC has a story about Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson going to seek the blessing of some christoextremists who have hijacked and held hostage the national Republican party for the past dozen or so years. Tompson believes that GLBT folks are second-class citizens at best, and he believes in using the apparatus of government to discriminate against and financially penalize them. The only problem the christoextremists have with his position is that he does not believe the US needs a constitutional amendment to prevent the federal and state governments from recognizing the existence of gay marriages. He would prefer instead to tamper with the basic constitutional framework of checks and balances between three supposedly equal branches of government by enacting an amendment that would infringe upon the constitutional authority of judges to rule that laws violate the constitution. The best part is, this means all those states that have already approved the amendment to prevent government recognition of gay and lesbian marriages will have to start all over again with new campaigns of bigotry.
