America the Beautiful

Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty to love about America, and I do, love it that is. I miss Due Process though, and Habeus Corpus, and especially Probable Cause, that was a good one, and I worry about what’s happened to the search and seizure laws, and the Bankruptcy Code, and this torture stuff is really out there.

Not so much the torture part, of course sometimes you’ve got to put the screws to somebody if the situation calls for it. But don’t get caught! These guys have no talent for it. They couldn’t steal a fucking magazine without getting caught. You smile for the camera and hold the guys head underwater with your foot, what’s so hard about that?

Fly guys around in special planes, unscheduled flights, you might as well hang out a sign, “torture victim.” Put them in a box and haul them with a shipment of artillery shells, hide them in plain sight. Like it was hard. These guys don’t have the common sense that god gave geese. They learned their stuff from the movies is my guess; in the movies the thief is always swinging his head around with a furrowed brow. That’ll get you caught ten times out of ten.

And it’s morons like this that we can blame if America is less than perfect.
