So let me get this right. If I or anyone else in Europe want to grace the United States of America with our presence and the US gets its way, I’ll have all my details, including the one credit card I own and the fact I hate cheese given over to the US authorities for, if they get their way, fifty years? What will that achieve? The new J. Edgar Hoovers will be able to see what shit vintage clothes I’ve bought on eBay lately? The Count Duckula DVDs I still haven’t watched?
Now answer me these, legal people: HOW IS THAT NOT AGAINST EVERYTHING AMERICA IS MEANT TO STAND FOR! Or is it just for people who agree with the people in charge?
I can’t do anything from here. I’m in England and that means I don’t count because as we know, the American government operates in its own little vacuum where the rest of the fucking planet doesn’t count. This is why it generates 25% of the world’s pollution with a significantly smaller percentage of world population. But may I PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT I HAVE EVER HELD DEAR, INCLUDING THIN LIZZY, BEG YOU, beg you to contact your elected representatives and beg them to stop this nonsense.
If you think you’re OK there, protected by your special bits of paper: Bush and his cronies are too busy pissing on the Constitution to protect it or you, OK? They’re not interested in helping you, they’re interesting in helping themselves and their mates.
Contact your elected representatives and ask for the cunt in the White House to be impeached and then summarily removed from office. Hell, don’t bother impeaching him first- he doesn’t care about due process or the judicial cornerstones of Western democracy, why should you?
Seriously, is there anything that can be done to shake America (and indeed Britain) out of its soma-coma? PLEASE, YOU LACKLUSTRE FOOLS, DO SOMETHING!
I am this close to finally joining the Labour Party. Not to praise Blair, but to bury him. New Labour needs to be destroyed and so does whatever Bush calls his idea of politics. I know there’s some decent Republicans out there… this is no longer about a simple case of two tribes, this is about the common belief that all people are created equal, that we all have certain rights as those equal people and the fact that there are some Very Powerful People out there trying their best to put a stop to all that.
Fascism doesn’t always come neatly wrapped up in a Charlie Chaplin moustache and shiny jackboots, all right? DO SOMETHING!
