Yesterday I made a post about a few things that, to me anyway, indicate that America as an idea is probably beyond hope. More than a few times since then, I've wondered if I was being perhaps too harsh (and no doubt used too much harsh language) in my assessment.
Tonight, sadly, I must report that I was probably not harsh enough.
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to consider the appeal in a case that gives the legal right for developers to extort landowners for their property via the high court's abhorrent decision in Kelo.
And then, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says that "There is no express grant of habeas in the Constitution."
From Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution of the United States of America:
"The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."There has been no invasion. And neither, for that matter, has there been any rebellion...
...but at the rate Gonzales and the rest of The Most Corrupt Administration in American History are going, there sure as Hell should be one.
