Still think everything will just work itself out?

Haven't heard much anything about this by way of the mainstream propoganda machine. Just one more in a spectacularly long list of failures by "professional" journalism to serve the purpose for which their occupation is intended.

Indeed, a search for the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 yields no results from the public servants that are CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, Washington Post, et al. A search of these sites, specifically, for any information yields zero results. (Other major news outlets also yield little to nothing in the way of substance on this and other very important Constitutional issues--while my search was certainly not exhaustive, and there may be some coverage out there from the majors, it is with near certainty I submit that none of them will offer anything substantive or insightful, save Keith Olbermann, one of the few mainstream professionals still in possesion of both his brains and his balls.)

It's difficult for me to imagine too many things that could be more important than the issues of our fundamental freedoms and protections being stripped away from us with ever increasing boldness. But hey, what the hell do I know? Checking out the website of the "professionals" tells me what is truly important in the news. The current banner headline on MSNBC U.S. News front page:

NBC: Cop makes roads safer by catching 200 drunk drivers in a year.

Well, damn. I just read the article and I can't remember the last time I felt this safe and wonderful. I can't believe I was so worked up about the above. Perhaps it was the signing statement from Mr. Bush (the "B" is for Benevolent) stating that he wouldn't be adhering to any pesky oversight or accountability.

The signing of this new act will be another wonderful device to add to the Emporer's toolbox as he, his family, and his friends continue their benevolent Protection of America. Just don't dare point out that he's nude, it makes him testy. Not to worry, though, good citizens. There's nothing like a few good secret "dunkings" to lift the spirits.

We now return to your regularly scheduled dose of DoubleThink.
