Just Observing: This nation may be the home of the brave, but...

...is it the land of the free? Apparently not.
In a hastily called hearing yesterday, Judge McGinty made a highly unusual and outrageous decision to force Carol to undergo a state psychological exam as part of her pre-sentencing investigation. From the very start of Carol's case, the judge has openly said that she must have mental problems for resisting an unlawful and brutal encounter with Cleveland Heights police... He went even further in yesterday's hearing, saying that her opposition to the Bush regime makes her "delusional."
Her crime? Openly expressing her opposition to the Bush regime.

Who will be the next Martin Niemöller?

Glad you posted that, Shea. Bush seems to have a cult following,huh?

Yeah, and a depraved cult it is!

And so it begins...
Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me. Most Americans disapprove of Bush, yet so few put their necks on the line and speak out. I keep thinking of the poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller (When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist...).

I think of that passage more and more these days, too.
