Welcome to the Gulag

Our Congress has officially given the green light to this Administration to act on its worst impulses. (Not that it hasn't been doing so already, of course, but now it doesn't even have to hide its atrocities.) The Senate confirmed bill S. 3930 on Thursday; the Democrats couldn't even muster enough human beings to filibuster this excrement, and only a single Republican (Chaffey of RI) broke ranks in a blatant ploy to bolster his image as a "moderate" to potentially forestall his ouster in November. I have no doubt that if the vote was any closer, he would have voted differently anyway, so let's not rush to praise the distinguished jackass from Rhode Island--he's voted party line every other time he's been asked.
What's in this bill, to become law as soon as Smirky figures out that for it to work, you have to take the cap off? Let's see: Habeas corpus? You can now be jailed without cause with no judicial recourse, as long as the President approves. And it's backdated to 9/11/01, too! The Geneva Convention? The President now decides what the Geneva Convention Laws mean--he has sole discretion as to the interpretation of the Geneva Convention! Which means that Smirky also gets to interpret what "cruel" "inhuman", and even "torture" mean! Congress just gave a blank check to the President to imprison and torture anyone he wants without any oversight whatsoever.
In other words, this Republican Congress and its enablers has just thrown hundreds of years of laws out the window, and I'm not even exaggerating--habeas corpus rights were first enunciated in the freakin' Magna Carta, for God's sake!
These evil sociopaths need to be stopped, by any means necessary. I have little faith that our electoral process is pure enough to be trusted any longer, and our hopeful "wait, work, and pray" strategy for November may be simply a last naïve gamble on that gossamer faith. I wish I were kidding, but mass assassinations of those willing, eager, and able to sell out this nation's soul--and for what? money? safety? power?--are becoming a more and more sane possibility. Anyone stupid, selfish, and evil enough to vote Republican this November, or in 2008, or ever again, should immediately be jailed and tortured just to show them what it is they are supporting. We are no longer a nation of laws, and we have now reached a moral edge most people talk about theoretically, as in: If you could go back in time, would you kill Hitler or Stalin in the crib? It may be that time now for us living here today, because our government has now declared war on anyone it wants to. My guess is, Islamic fundamentalists in Iraq are merely the first victims in this worldwide purge of anyone whom Der Führer Smirky dislikes.
Jeebus, we are screwed. Thanks a bunch, Republicans! Thanks, Christian Fundamentalists! Thanks, mainstream media! Thanks, spineless Democrats! Thanks, Ralph Naderites! Thanks, Ronnie, for starting us down this path 25 years ago! Thanks, Babs, for raising such a foul, sociopathic, evil bully! May all your flesh be flayed in Hell forever . . .

I put my hand in my pocket
What do I feel
One hundred and ten stories
Of concrete and steel
I like to watch

That plane-shaped hole
Really gets me hot
But the big ball of fire
Is the money shot
I like to watch

I like to watch
The plane going in
I like to watch
The flame shooting out
People dive into the street
While I play with my meat
My steel melted
and my tower's coming down

The New York skyline
Will never be the same
But the guys who flew those planes
Had fucking amazing aim
I like to watch

There must have been a reason
But I don't understand
Why they hit the Pentagon
Instead of Disneyland
I like to watch

I like to watch
The plane going in
I like to watch
The flame shooting out
It's raining broken glass
While I sit on my ass
My steel melted
and my tower's coming down

I'd almost had enough
Of watching planes explode
Until they showed it in reverse
And I had to shoot my load
I like to watch

Now my hand's all sticky
And I can't find a rag
I guess I'll have to use
The american flag
I like to watch

Um, and your point is?

My point is, you always neglect the sexual dimension of the September 11th attacks on America.

These lyrics express perfectly my opinions on 9/11. I know I'm not the only person who received sexual gratification from watching two of America's tallest buildings be destroyed, but I'm one of a very few who seems willing to admit to it.

You have to admit, Bryduck, the replays of the planes entering the Towers, complete with the "money shot" of the flames and fire shooting out was blatantly pornographic.

As for the World Trade Center itself, I felt the building was quite phallic, and its collapse greatly resembled a giant penis losing its erection after ejaculation.

If you're truly curious about this Bryduck, you can see a music video dedicated to this viewpoint at It beats Loose Change, as well as my meat.

Since I have never posted on the 9/11 attacks per se, and did not here either, your comments are not only prurient, but also irrelevant. Stick to the point of the post if you want to participate, please. If this is in jest, I'm sorry, but I am in no mood today to laugh.
