Bad metaphor du jour

We can't impose freedom, but we can eliminate roadblocks to freedom, and to allow free societies to develop.
-- aWol, yesterday

You mean like this roadblock to freedom in Iraq?

Or maybe this one in the West Bank?

Occupation isn't the path to freedom--it's the opposite of freedom.

Of course, Bush has no interest in freedom. His latest executive order is a threat to us all:
The new Executive Order quietly signed by Bush this week... bestows upon himself -- and designated minions -- the arbitrary power to seize the assets of anyone whom he decides "poses a significant risk" of commiting violence aimed at "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people."
Chris Floyd analyzes this Nazi proclamation in greater detail.

When it comes to hating freedom, nobody hates freedom more than George Bush--except maybe Dick Cheney.
