Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

In a speech that beggars reason, former constitutional law professor Barrack Obama proposed a new system of “Indefinite Preventative Detention” through which anyone believed likely to commit a crime at some point in the future, U.S. citizen or otherwise, can be locked up forever without charge, trial, jury or appeal. Anyone read Phillip K. Dick’s The Minority Report? Maybe you saw the movie? Remember how well those experiments in “pre-crime” turned out?

This honestly makes me so angry I can hardly type these words. When Bush suspended Habeus Corpus, it was an indefinite suspension. As Obama said in his newspeak-riddled speech, his goal is to codify a new system altogether, one that legalizes indefinite detention. Why? Because he isn’t above the law. Holy shit! I cannot believe I am forced to qualify Bush’s Sherman-like slash-and-burn of our civil liberties as a lesser evil! Damn you, Obama, for making me do that!

I love the fact that we have opened up stem-cell research and no longer fund ostrich-only education, but this is unforgivable. Throw the bastard out!

Vent with me and listen to the wisdom of The Tossers…
