Well, now that we have established a Democratic Dictatorship there seems to be some confusion. This is America! Constitutional Monarchy? It canâ€™t happen here! We learned that in the third grade.
It has happened here! With the passing of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, America has its very first bona fide dictator! The Silver Spoon Kid from Texas has made good. Yee ha! Ride â€˜em cowboy! Oops, excuse me, that phrase best fits Rep. Mark Foley.
Sadly, not all seem to be hot for Hitler-nouveau. Iâ€™m certainly displeased and plan to write a strongly worded letter to my Congressman. Fact is, Iâ€™m mad as Hell. I like to think that the U.S. is still a Democratic Republic! Well folks, the times they are a changinâ€™ and not in a good way. Donâ€™t people read or follow the news, beyond FOX infotainment? Never mind answering that question. Itâ€™s rhetorical.
Maybe what we have here is a failure to communicate. We need a refresher course on how to Spot A Dictator! Itâ€™s a lot like the old Monty Python skit Spot The Loony but the prizes you win (and lose) are a whole lot more serious.
