A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich

Interesting .... now the President says he is exempt from his own EO.

Since he has declared himself exempt from the Constitution and laws passed by Congress this is not surprising.

What is interesting is why would the President write an EO instructing members of the Executive Office on the fine points of management of classified materials and then implicitly exempt the most visible member who handles the most sensitive materials?

Now for an interesting twist
Democrats plan to cut Cheney out of executive funding bill

I guess in his efforts to remain secretive he may now be faced with no funding for his continued secrecy.

What a predicament he has gotten into.

It does make one wonder just what he is hiding? The fascist buggers need to be placed on trial for high treason!

Just read the first part of a four part series on Cheney. This appears to be a must read if anyone wants to try and understand him.

You know, I try, I really do, not to be so damned cynical but I read about the s*** Cheney and Bush are doing and then I see that the Republican Party doesn't seem to mind all that much and even the Democratic Party doesn't seem all that bothered. Here is the problem with all that - Bush and Cheney are establishing a precedence that will continue if not stopped. If Bush and Cheney are not impeached for the s*** they have done and are doing then every administration in succession will, sooner or later, revert to the same crap. Count on it. I don't want ANY administration to be above the Constitution, but this one is and neither party is doing a damn thing about it. Wrong is wrong.

I wish just once, just once America would vote all these bastards out of office and re-establish for all to know who this country belongs to.
