I Can't Go For That, No Can Do

"Say it isn't so." Hall and Oats song titles have the message that most Americans are saying right now. This administration is destroying this country and are well on their way to destroying the Constitution.

On September 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states.

The Constitution of the United States of America is signed by 38 of 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Supporters of the document waged a hard-won battle to win ratification by the necessary nine out of 13 U.S. states.

California Democratic Congressman Pete Stark, during a town hall meeting at a senior center, was told by a man upset over health care reform said:
"Mister Congressman, don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining." To which Stark responded: "I wouldn't dignify you by peeing on your leg, it wouldn't be worth wasting the urine."

When a second angry attendee accused Stark of lying about health care reform, Stark added:
"Whether you think I'm a liar or not, I still want to get your input — and I'll make up how I'm gonna lie about it after I get it."

"Private Eyes" are watching you Mr Pres.

The Obama administration supports extending three key provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year, the U.S. Justice Department told Congress in a letter made public Tuesday.

Lawmakers and civil rights groups had been pressing the Democratic administration to say whether it wants to preserve the post-Sept. 11 law's authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called "lone wolf" terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps.

The provision on business records was long criticized by rights groups as giving the government access to citizens' library records, and a coalition of liberal and conservative groups complained that the Patriot Act gives the government too much authority to snoop into Americans' private lives.

This government is "Out of Touch" with the American People and we are "Out of Time."

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama said he would take a close look at the law, based on his past expertise in U.S. constitutional law. Back in May, President Obama said legal institutions must be updated to deal with the threat of terrorism, but in a way that preserves the rule of law and accountability.

In a letter to lawmakers, Justice Department officials said the administration supports extending the three expiring provisions of the law, although they are willing to consider additional privacy protections as long as they don't weaken the effectiveness of the law.

Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich wrote Sen. Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that the administration is willing to consider stronger civil rights protections in the new law "provided that they do not undermine the effectiveness of these important (provisions)."

Watch out because he's a "Maneater", the beauty is there but a beast is in his heart. He'll chew you up and spit you out.

I'm listening to Daryl Hall and John Oats "I Can't Go For That, No Can Do" and that seems like an appropriate song. I can't go for any of this current government's bills, ideas, or desire to destroy this country.
