Apparently, the American senate has initiated the process to quickly confirm a candidate for the top law enforcement official of the United States, an individual who has made promises to the Federalist society and other sponsors of the status quo that he won't trouble Junior's beautiful mind with any sort of questioning of the specious rationales devised to use torture in an extra-legal way while prosecuting the combat du jour.
How wonderful that a nation of laws is now on the fast track to becoming a nation of one man, and his quest to suspend reality by any means necessary.
Of course, the usual reasons are proffered...'time of war', etc., but these, ultimately, are non sequiturs.
After all, hiring someone to ignore broken laws and flout established principle in the support of a quest for blood, treasure, and vindication for long-failed policies, wrapped within the context of an illegitimate use of force hardly requires a 'by-your-leave' from someone as determined to subvert the nation as the current president.
Your country is being looted by career criminals who are using your own fears and your own laws against you, America.
If you don't like it, I suggest you do something about it. If you do like it, well...Meet you for root beers in the wasteland.
I'll be the one wearing a necklace of skulls.
