  Because if we go about our lives, the terrorists win.
The Patriot Act is about to become permanent. Nice knowing you, Constitutional rights. Don't be strangers. Apparently, if we have rights, the terrorists win.

Freedom of information? What's that? Want birth and death information? Sorry, no can do. If we let you research your family's genealogy, the terrorists win.

Freedom of religion? What's that? This past week, the House passed a bill that would criminalize churches which give aid to illegal immigrants. If we let religious compassion take precedence over religious hatred, the terrorists win.

Right to privacy? Not if it's your money we're talking about. Pay your credit cards off, get investigated by Homeland Security. Because if we let you get out of debt, the terrorists win.

A President that tells the truth? Surely you jest. This has been up for a while, but it's important to link to it. He knew the levees would fail. He knew it. And if we demand integrity and accountability from our chief executive, the terrorists win. Right?

  Bullshit of the Purest Ray Serene
*annoyed look* So, if you believe the news reports, Alito sent a thank-you note to James Dobson of Focus on the Family. And if you believe Dobson, Alito singled him out personally for a thank-you.

Sure he did. I believe that like I believe the moon is made of green cheese.

Note these three points from the article on CBS News, which an angry mind might overlook:

1. Focus on the Family founder James Dobson said Wednesday that new Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito sent him a letter thanking him and his radio listeners for their support during his Senate confirmation hearings.

I've underlined the important part. Dobson said. DOBSON said. Anyone think he might POSSIBLY have a hidden motive in saying this? Possibly?

2. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Alito's note was in response to a letter Dobson sent congratulating him on his confirmation. She said his pledge to "keep in mind the trust that has been placed in me" was included in many replies he wrote to congratulatory letters.

Again, underlining of the important parts. Dobson prompted the thank-you note by sending a congratulation letter. And Alito probably had a stack of those to respond to. Is this what Dobson thinks it is? Suuuuure it is.

3. Focus on the Family declined to release a copy of Alito's letter but confirmed the wording read by Dobson.

Uh huh. That's so they, and Dobson, can continue to spin this to Dobson's loyal audience of sheeplisteners that this thank-you note, which was probably just one step up from a form letter, means that Justice Alito singled them out personally and of course he will do what they want before he will be an honest jurist and uphold the law.

I call bullshit.

Also, shame on the various liberal groups who are taking this bait like hungry catfish. Wake up, folks. Or stop being on my side, because you're making my side look stupid.
I'm an activist. I'm a progressive. I'm probably a conservative's worst nightmare.
