Troops Home Yet?
cassandra is in crawford for the month- if she has time to blog, she will...
in the meantime she's working herself ragged yet somehow finding time to compose bumperstickers- look what she came up with:
It's the bumpersticker du jour here: www.bumperactive.com
just spoke with our girl in Texas... she seems good- busy, tired, all that... but good
we love her...

oh my god, i'm in heaven! i finally found what i've been looking for and it's this: Anti-War Radio it's so fkng awesome.
i used to listen to a similar radio station on aol radio. it was called politics a go go. same format, protest songs of all genres mixed with clips from political speeches and such.. then aol yanked it and all i can find there that's similar is their patriotic station -- which is all jingoism all the time and that is NOT patriotic, that's loyalist...
but now i have what i want! hear hear! check it out! go now. it's awesome!

"You're guilty. We can't tell you why, but there's a guy, we can't tell you who, who told us something. We can't tell you what, but you're guilty."
yep, that's what's coming down the pike...
read all about it here
remember way back when last month when the supremes poo-pooed bush's policy of locking up foreign "detainees" and throwing away the key? well, shortly after that was decided, bush said he would work with congress to get legislation passed making it legal after all.
so, he's written up that plan and he's planning to expand his blackhole policy to include you and me and any other unamerican he can corner.
as i've said before, the one thing i share with the conscienceless conservatives is my big daddy complex. how i wish that i could ask my dad if he supports policies that would deny defendants:
rights to confront accusers, exclude hearsay accusations, or bar evidence obtained through rough or coercive interrogations. They would not be guaranteed a public or speedy trial and would lack the right to choose their military counsel, who in turn would not be guaranteed equal access to evidence held by prosecutors.
Detainees would also not be guaranteed the right to be present at their own trials, if their absence is deemed necessary to protect national security or individuals.
when do we start seeking political asylum?
