This Evil Bill

This evil bill is about protecting torturers from prosecution.

This evil bill overturns habeas corpus--for all of us.

This evil bill is about deliberately dis-establishing the rule of law.

This evil bill is about establishing dictatorship.

This evil bill is about making torture legal.

This evil bill just "passed."

This evil bill is the most disgusting horror that the Bushist fascists have forced on the American people--to date.

There is a cancer now on not just the Presidency, but on our whole democracy.

They have voted to establish a class of persons who are now officially non-persons, a class for whom the rule of law no longer exists. Once it was slaves, Indians, Jews, women; the designated subhuman class now consists of -- whomever the dictating executive dictates.

The Nazis killed six million people, and yet were treated with dignity and tried at Nuremberg according to the rule of law.

These evil people who wrote this bill are opposed to the rule of law and are intent upon establishing a new sub-human class, and this evil action shames our country.

Look at the way the Republicans have voted to ram this through. It's disgraceful.
Neither of my Senators voted for this crap. I have not checked, but I'm sure my congressmen didn't either.
This is an overtly fascist move on American civil rights by a president and a congress who want to leave a "legacy."
I hope they get creamed in the November election.

There is only one word for these Senators..."traitor". They've betrayed their country. They've betrayed their oath of office. They've placed the President above the Constitution. And as you so rightly pointed out they've created a class of people who are outside the law.
