“Here is an interesting attempt on the part of the Bush worshippers to dish the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution that limits a President to two terms:
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
February 17, 2005
Mr. HOYER (for himself, Mr. BERMAN, Mr. SENSENBRENNER,Mr. SABO, and Mr. PALLONE) introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary:
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:
`The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is repealed.’
Isn’t this nice? Sieg Heil, Mein Führer!
The Bush people have now set up an entire system to permit instant military crackdowns inside the United States in the event that, to quote from an official order, now in my safe, “provides the vehicle for the reestablishment of domestic order in the event of civil insurrections…” I have sent this to TBR in the hopes that they will publish parts of it to entertain those interested in the neo-fascist rompings in the Chimpanzee Retirement Home.
And from a friend in the DoD (upper level bureaucrat who detests Bush and his band of trained snakes) this bit of neonazi fun. It seems that since recruiting has tanked totally, the next step is to recruit school dropouts, dimbulbs, those with “minor” criminal records or 18 year olds who might find themselves inside an institution for the delinquent. (!)
The second part of this program is scary, even for one who lives inside the Beltway.
A study has been concluded aimed at permitting the DoD to recruit men who are convicted of felonies and currently on parole for same or incarcerated in a Federal or State penitentiary! However, only those convicts or ex-convicts with prior military service will be considered! And certain categories of convictions such as arson, rape or murder will not be considered…’unless said individual possesses skills that can be considered essential to the War on Terrorism’ (!)
The question here is this: Will these dregs of society be used inside or outside of the United States? The study concludes that there are over 3,000,000 such individuals in prison and the states incarcerating them are begging Bush for relief. The right-wing crazies have wanted to lock up every pickpocket or newspaper thief for life but the states can no longer afford to feed them.
This plan has met with considerable approval in the Oval Office because it will relieve the military manpower problem and avoid a very unpopular and potentially fatal universal draft (wanted by Bush but not by the military) and take tens of thousands of mouths off of the public tit.
The suggestions have been made to those working this project up is that the convict brigades only be used outside of the United States. What these sweet and charming dregs of society would do if in uniform and armed is so terrible of contemplation that there is no point even thinking about it. But what if they decide they do not like Bush? Look what happened to the Roman Emperor Caligula.”
