Declaration of a National State of Terrorny

The Difference between this President and the Last?

Well, the old one wasn't eligible for re-election...

"Hmm, unprecedented executive power seized in secrecy and fear, you say?"

"What kind of government did we get," they asked Franklin as he walked out of those great halls, and I'm sorry to say, he did not answer "I'm sorry, thats classified."
Don't know if this one is supposed to be a secret, as it is definitely, not classified, but I only found the following in the Federal Register, buried, after it left the desk of the same President who stated at the beginning of his term that (paraphrase) "Every Executive Order I sign, will be posted on the WhiteHouse web page, for public review, within hours of my receiving signature"

Well, let me know if you see what I found on an obscure government page, between thousands of pages of bureaucratic notices and assorted federal minutia, on the White House page, where it was promised. Ill even give you the link. http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing_room/PresidentialActions/

No? then I'll paste it here for you, at the bottom of this post, from the President who promised you transparency, and a "radical departure from the policies of the previous administration."

And as I wrote last October:
[...I]f he was willing, he would have drug these skeletons out in to the open and painted himself as a hero setting off to slay an abusive totalitarian state. But he hasn't, and he continually dismisses any mention of it. And why? Because that leviathan state is what he voted for, It's secrecy and shadows are what he needs, and its abusive totalitarian power is what he craves.

He entered this campaign with a smoking gun, and all he could think of is how many bullets might be left in the magazine.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Sometimes I hate it when I'm right...
Tempus Fugit.

When did Bush Sr. get so tan? I am reminded of a line from "Shooter."

"Don't like the President that much, didn't like the one before that much either."
