[rant on]

Dear Senator Lieberman,

Go fuck yourself.

Due process is why our country is great. Removing the right of habeas corpus to people accused of a crime against our nation simply because they are an "enemy combatant" makes us no better than the very people we fight against. Seriously, what is this shit? I expected the republicans to vote yes, lockstep, in this. I was disappointed, though not surprised, to see McCain in the list of Yeas. But you? You're a fuckwad. I'll vote republican for the first time ever to any ticket I have the opportunity to vote on that contains you. No vice presidential stuff, no presidential primary, nothing. Why don't you go be the dictator of china or iran or something like that? Take your buttwipe republican buddies with you. We'll take the republicans who voted nay, and the ones who abstain. They're better Americans than you. In my opinion, we should hold anyone who voted Yea on this as an enemy combatant, because they're destroying our american principles from the inside. See how long it takes them to understand why it's important.

Thank you for showing respect to our veterans by showing what you truly stand for, and what they fought for - a land where our president is free to determine that anyone is an enemy, deprive them of the rights the veterans fought and died for, and make us look like shitheads to the world. I don't care what any individual nation thinks, but I think we should be held to a higher standard than any other nation out there. If they're all looking at us in disgust, then we're not holding ourselves to that standard.

I hope that this amendment is further amended before it becomes law. Making Guantamino's tribunals more accountable, I like that. But stripping these guys of their rights? Not cool at all.

All dictators, in time, put on the robes of tyrants they depose.

Dear dictator,

When would you like assistance in deposing those who deny you the promised land of college funding?

I should be ok for now.
I'm planning on dealing with the FAFSA people on Monday.

yeah, as I understand it, the major bottleneck is OCC and it's slow response times. In theory the FAFSA should be able to bypass the school to some degree, such as generating the SAR for me.
I should also apply to another school and see if that works any better.

Something occurs to me.
Considering how pagerank typically works in regard to you, how much effort would it be to make this rant of yours number 1 when you search for McCain, Lieberman, and fuckwad?

Bravo, Paul
In general, our Congress needs to be concerned with shoring up and protecting the Bill of Rights, not tearing it down. I second the motion that all of the Congressmen and Senators who voted for this foul bill be sent to Guantanamo Bay...as residents.

Can we add in the ones who voted in favor of the utterly mis-named Patriot Act, as well?

I'm all with you on this one. If we make our own rules, then we MUST play by them! Not just whe it suits us!
