Joe Should Go

sadface
I wish I was a United States Senator, so I could introduce a bill to strip Joe Lieberman of his American citizenship.

You know, Golden Rule and all that. Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander. What goes around comes around.

Joe Lieberman = Al Gore's Biggest Mistake.

I tend to keep pretty close track of the news, and I hadn't heard about this bill. Pretty chilling if you ask me. However, it isn't very surprising, sad to say. You go from declaring war on "terror" -- or in other words groups of people -- to saying you'll strip citizenship from people who allegedly or actually support these groups of people. Well, it's nice and arbitrary, and the full weight of the government will make sure that defending yourself successfully is almost impossible.

It used to be that we declared war against actual nation-states. You know, like we did with Japan and Germany. Now we're reduced to doing it against a bunch of whackjobs living in the desert half a world away with no real military to speak of. It's pretty pathetic on our part, IMO... and dangerous, too.

As far as Liberman himself: I'm not the least bit surprised. The man, like many politicians, has been for sale all along. The deeper and long term ramifications of this bill doesn't matter to him at all. I'm glad he's not from my state, but he's still an embarassment.
