It's so touching to hear such pro-government types as Alan Simpson touting their belief in privacy of late. We now know that Dick Cheney's hunting accident was a "private" matter that occurred at a "private" hunting camp, and that Dick had every right to expect the world to respect his "privacy." And, of course, the right for his victim to his own "privacy" as to the nature and seriousness of his wounds.Yes, this vocal support of "privacy" must come as a great relief to Bill Clinton for the respect that was given to his "privacy." And Michael Schiavo must be thrilled to know of the republican insistence that citizens' "privacy" be observed.
These hypocritical pukes make me sick to my stomach. I'd like to send all of them on a "private" hunting trip with "private citizen" Dick Cheney. The "private citizen" that we pay, the "private citizen" that travels with a cadre of Secret Service people that we pay, in military jets that we pay for, and convoys of gas-guzzling armored SUV's that we pay for. The "private citizen" that travels with a full-time staff of physicians that we pay for. The "private citizen" who thinks that his "privacy" extends to his meeting with his oil-company cronies to set government energy policy and to engineer multi-billion dollar giveaways of mineral rights that "we the people" own.
This administration is the most vile, corrupt, dishonest, anti-american, anti-constitution, anti rule-of-law, anti-freedom anti-every single principle that this country was founded on that has ever held the reins of U.S. power, and I sincerely hope I live long enough to see all of them rotting in the prisons in which they belong.
