Watching the news last night I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing. The bottom feeding lowlifes we chose to represent us in government want to build a monument to “The War on Terror” I admit that I immediately went into a rage, first off as the story pointed out a war has to be over for a minimum of ten years before a war memorial can be built…thats congress own rule obn the matter…of course they can change it and thats the talk. I don’t know but my gut tells me that this lame brained idea is that of a Republican but my gut tells me this will be bi partisan….Imagine the uniparty building itself a memorial to forever pat themselves on the back for circumventing the Constitution…In the name of terrorism.
That takes a lot of gall right there….
One has to wonder what it might look like….will it list each freedom side by side with the name of the legislation that stripped it away? something like “The right to due process, slain by the Patriot Act” The right to be protected against unreasonable search and siezure, slain by The Patriot Act…. The Patriot Act it seems took down a lot of our rights but we can’t forget things like The Rico Act even though that one is a war onb drugs thingy but hey how far behind can that war on drugs memorial be….a constant reminder of an abject failure on its face but really it accomplished what was intended, it gave the government particularly Richard Nixon the ability to strip the rights of his biggest opponents….black people, women and the antiwar movement.
But what bothers me most is that Americans, by and large will wrap this whole Monument to the war on terror in a cloak of patriotism and it will get broad support from the very people who were its victims, American Citizens.
