Parentheticals

January 25, 2006

1. AG’s memo raises questions on Patriot Act – The Boston Globe — Driving more stakes in for the inflating circus tent of Presidential power… Or is it driving another stake through the heart of democracy? (I always get those confused.)
2. AG Gonzales’ Defense Of U.S. Domestic Spy Program Draws Protests and Criticism from Law Professors, Students — Georgetown law professor David Cole responded but good to Gonzales’ speech yesterday. (Scroll down for Cole’s kick-assosity.)
3. No guts: Democratic aides say Alito filibuster ‘highly unlikely’ (Some insult for Your Injury.)
4. China to build world’s first “artificial sun” experimental device — CHINA TO BUILD A MOTHERFUCKING ARTIFICIAL SUN “…which aims to generate infinite, clean nuclear-fusion-based energy [!]” (Let that sink in: “infinite.”) — Mr. President, we must not allow an artificial sun gap! —

    Okay, this is what pisses me off; anybody with a lick of sense could have told you the Patriot Act was unnecessary. Let’s forget, for a moment, that nobody in the Bush administration was paying attention to terrorism before 9/11. If there is ANY inter-departmental communication between FBI, CIA, FAA, or INS–9/11 doesn’t happen. It’s really that simple. This is why Bush and Co avoided a 9/11 investigation; they could enact completely unnecessary and invasive policies, like the PA, when all that was needed was a more efficient mode of information exchange between intelligence agencies. Oh yeah…and for somebody inside the White House to give a fuck!

    Sorry. End of rant.

    But then I suppose every country’s gonna want their own artificial sun, and then it’ll get so goddman bright around here you can’t sleep.
