Boyle's Law

Not the law of physics which states that the product of pressure times volume in a gas is a constant at constant temperature. No, I mean the one where George W. Bush can arrest anyone, anywhere, at any time, for any (or no) reason, bring them to Guantanamo Bay, torture them, and use what they say under torture against them (or anyone else, for that matter). Because that's what Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General Brian Boyle (quite a title you've got there, a**hole) has been arguing in court this week.

Knowing how totalitarian governments typically eat their own, it wouldn't surprise me (or particularly dismay me) to read, in a year or two, that Boyle had been executed at Gitmo after confessing under torture to killing Laci Peterson. What is truly dismaying is that the "Justice" department is basically saying that centuries of common, constitutional, case and international law are now null and void--George W. Bush is the law. He's Louis XIV--"L'etat, c'est moi." The only solace I can find is that the smirky idiot probably doesn't know what that means.

Anyway--peak oil, global warming, currency collapse: Bring 'em on, I say! Anything to stop the fascist takeover of this country and the world. I think Patrick Henry expressed similar sentiments a couple of centuries ago.
