FIRST QUESTION the Democrats Are Outta Gas!
In honor of flag burning monday-A list of Rights we've lost under GW Bush.
Courtesy, and with much thanks, to Chuck Baldwin. It's a year old link-but damn it, it's pertinent to today. I just think we need to be reminded just how much these bastards are eroding our freedoms.

Here Are the Questions I Asked In Return:
How many of you:
--have been prevented from associating with people of your religious or political persuasion?
--have been secretly detained without an immigration hearing?
--have had your jailhouse conversations monitored and have been denied a lawyer?
--have had your records and papers seized during the investigation of some alledged terrorist activity?
--have been jailed by our government indefinitely without a trial?
--have had a trial, but have not been allowed to confront the witnesses against you?
Surely with 91 thou+ members, these things have happened to plenty of you... How have you chosen to fight it? And what should I do if it happens to me?
Here Are the Answers I Got From Them:
YES--THAT'S RIGHT! The professional children that do so much whining, and wish to celebrate their 'flag burning Monday' instead of Independence Day, had no answer for this whatsoever!
NOT ONE OF THE 91,000+ MEMBERS OF DU, NOR ANYONE THEY KNEW, HAS HAD ANY OF THESE RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM!
