Two Wrongs

A lot of little kids in the United States grew up hearing the admonition, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” The Obama administration would do well to consider that mother’s maxim in its strategy to prevent terrorism. The Los Angeles Times reported on an administration memo that clearly bypasses international law.

The United States government is rapidly becoming the poster child for hypocrisy. Our government is abandoning due process in favor of retribution. It is a vaulting leap in the annihilation of individual rights and democracy.  The US does not have the right to rule the world or to ignore other countries’ sovereignty. The human population of this planet is not subordinate to the United States government or, by association, its citizens.

Heaven help us, we are the enemy.

    I’m glad you’re talking about it…because Washington and the Web is all crickets. But why expect anything different when the whole damn nation swallowed whole the crypto-fascist name and shopworn concept of “Homeland Security.”

    That said, this is not clear cut. I feel it’s wrong on it’s face. But I’m a torn. Working on a better response to this.

    later gator.

      Happy to hear from you. Understand your conflict have some of the same. Disillusioned and disgusted. There is a better way. I don’t know what it is but I know it exists.
