I Believe

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

As most of you know, I'm one of those radical leftists the neo-con cabal is always railing against. And I just want to state a few things that I believe. I believe that every American should have socialized medicine. I believe the United States should lead the charge on greenhouse gas emissions and should be a leader in environmental stewardship; and be the leader on implementing the Kyoto Protocols. I believe that evangelical Christians are no different than Islamic fundamentalists. I believe that the Constitution of the United States says to keep your damn religion out of my face and my government. I believe that Christianity is an amazing idea, and I hope I'm around when it's actually tried. I believe that freedom of speech and assembly are rights to fight, and die, for if necessary. I believe that the press of the United States has fallen down on the job and are no longer serving the public interests but those of the oligarchs and right-wing zealots. I believe that a policy of preemptive war is the quickest way to get the US attacked yet again. And I believe that President Shrub and his ilk from the neo-fascist zombie brigade are DESTROYING our great nation for a twisted version of what they "think" the United States should look like. I believe that homophobes and those who espouse against homosexuals, are themselves the gayest, most closeted FAGS on the face of the earth. I believe that those who quote the bible as historical or scientific fact should be declared legally insane. Furthermore, I believe that anyone who listens to Hannity, O'Reilly, or Savage need admittance to a high security treatment center for the criminally stupid and ignorant. I also believe that Anne Coulter needs to be force fed rat poison only after being gang raped by a groups of eggplant wielding gay liberal immigrants from Mexico. I believe that the United States of America used to be a beacon of hope and optimism to oppressed people around the world, and can be once again if and only if the criminals and despots in Washington are sent packing. And to quote Mike Malloy "GOD I HATE THESE PEOPLE!!"


Specter vs The Shrub

All I can say is that is about time that a member of Congress stood up to the administration of President Shrub and their outright attempts at a power grab. I'm sure everyone is aware of Shrub's so called "signing statements" that he's attached to over 750 bills which he's signed into law. With such winners as him signing the McCain Anti-Torture legislation into law, and then attaching a signing statement to the law saying that he really doesn't think that they have to follow the law as passed by the Congress. Does Chuckle Nuts need a Constitutional Law course? Well here's Article I, Section 8 has to say about the powers of the Congress:

Section 8. The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;

To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the
United States;

To establish post offices and post roads;

To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;

To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court;

To define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations;

To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years;

To provide and maintain a navy;

To make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces;

To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;--And To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any
department or officer thereof.

So as everyone can see the duty of the Congress is to intrepret and pass the laws. That is NOT the job the President. The President's job it to enforce the laws passed by the Congress. Pretty simple if you ask me. But of course, Shrub doesn't think he has to follow the Constitution, because of his retarded Unitary Executive Principle.
Well apparently Mr. Arlen Specter (R-PA) has finally had enough of Bush circumventing the law and the Constitution. Mr. Specter is introducing legislation which, if passed, would allow the Congress to sue the President in Federal Court. Great! It's about time Congress took some action sgainst the actions of this President. Of course the argument can be made that Specter is only doing this because of the mid-term elections, and he's just pandering to his constituents. Regardless, I think this is a excellent turn of events.
