you’re safe in the north…

…but not to the south of our dear 49th parallel.  Both the House and the Senate have passed the ridiculous, embarassing, draconian, vicious, immoral, and degrading “Detainee Bill”, which, among other things, removes the right of habeas corpus from anyone that the administration of the USA deems an ‘enemy combatant’.

I hate to link CNN, but it’s here and here, and there’s some vicious discussion of it on non-news sites, like here.

In short, to channel Dr. Thompson :  the President of the United States of America is dumb a wrong, in all ways, and both Congress and the Senate rolled over like lame ducks and did his bidding.  Or, to channel the boys at Penny-Arcade:  “It means grease your little cornholes.”
