If I'm reading the right one - July 17th Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq - what frightens me most is the vagueness.

It leaves the door wide open to interpret and apply this mandate in any way they see fit, to any situation they see fit, against any person they see as unfit.

Phrases like "threatening the peace and stability of Iraq" and "undermining the efforts" can easily be applied to protests, individual rants, etc.

That this has not been in the news - you would think Lou Dobbs would be having a field day - is truly surprising to me.

If you would like to check it out, it is located at
http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/07/20070717-3.html

I don't think you're the only one waiting for an explanation Lori.... word is slowly leaking out and from what I've seen, people are mad as hell AND scared. I'm one of them.

Aside from the fact that he is literally stripping us of our constitutional rights (if that isn't enough), the fact that it hasn't been publicized and basically hushed into law is what pisses me off the most here. Lindsay's drunk again - couldn't escape that one... but one of our countries greatest constitutional rights FREEDOM - a word that we based our entire existence on - is taken away and it's not even mentioned in the news. Some hollywood slut is drunk again therefore that's the top story?

Seriously. I am truly scared for our country.

I didn't believe it until I went to the whitehouse.gov website and read the Executive Order with my own eyes. My husband thinks it's a mistake or something... when I told him, he didn't believe it was true. He's a Brit.

I'm still waiting for an explanation from SOMEONE, or some publicity... or even a news report about it. But no. We get Lindsay Lohan.

I hope someone brings up the latest Bushfucked Executive Order during the Republican debate. You know, the one outlawing any protest on the Iraq war. Land of the free anyone? If I had a camera, I would submit it myself. :(

Actually, I wish the S.O.B. would be impreached by then, but I highly doubt that's going to happen if he's gotten away with essentially stripping Americans of their freedom at this point.

I loved, loved, loved, loved the debate last night!!!!! And, OMG Linda, I'm so glad you were impressed by Barack. I thought he just sucked Hillary's doors right off. Even if I weren't already a huge fan, I would have said he won the debate last night hands-down. What I love most about him is that he's so HUMAN. He is a regular person, just like all of us, and not afraid to be so. He unashamedly says "um" and "uh" when thinking while speaking... he doesn't use $50 words to "wow" the press wogs... he looks directly at the audience and makes that **connection** that can give you lovely goosebumps all up and down your spine. When he speaks, he speaks from the heart, and it shows.

One comment about John Edwards - last night, the question was put forth specifically to Clinton and Obama about voters NOT voting for Hillary because she's a woman, or Barack because he's bi-racial. John Edwards, a short while later, said, "If you are the kind of person who would not vote for Barack or Hillary solely because of their race or gender, then I DO NOT want your vote. Do not vote for me." I really loved that.

My opinion about John Edwards hasn't changed, though, sadly. As I said before, my family has been exactly where his family is now and, because of the benefit of my firsthand experience, I don't feel that NOW is the time for an Edwards presidency. Maybe in another eight years, when his kids are older and the grieving is over... but not now.

My opinion of Hillary went down even further last night. She's like an emotionless robot... blah-blah-blah (insert canned, over-rehearsed response here) blah-blah-blah. She's the consummate politician - even more so, and even more offensively so - than her husband. We've had enough of that. It's time for a change.

Oh, and lest I forget... if Anderson Cooper ever shows up at my door (ya right), my husband will have to excuse me... because that freaking sex-god-gorgeous hunk of steaming man-meat is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I just finished his book last weekend ("Dispatches From The Edge" -- it was fantastic - go buy it), but I kept finding myself closing the book over and over and over so I could gaze at his photo on the front cover.... ahhhhhhhhhh.... mmmmmmmm..... oooooooooohhhhh..... sigh. If we could just dip that man in some Godiva chocolate, I could die and go to heaven a happy, happy woman.

..................... but my hubby is cute, too. (grin)

OH MY GOD! He does look like Gilbert Gottfried!!! TOO FUNNY!
