History has a way of repeating itself. Posters like this one were used as propaganda in war on all sides of the fight. The Nazi's showed us as weaklings. We showed them as barbarians. You get the picture. Though the one seen here is obviously a parody, what they try to do is drive people into categories; those that are with us, or those that are with the enemy. GW's legacy will be that he pushed our nation into these categories more than any other person in the history of our country. While the wars rage on and people are being ground up, our constitution is being tampered with in ways that the founding fathers would find revolting. Remember the FISA fiasco that took place for nearly two years before anyone even noticed? Yeah, the one that gave the government the right to tap your phone without permission or probable cause. Well, while you continued to worry about who wears what lapel pins, the Department of Justice came up with another brilliant little plan to use the constitution as toilet paper. It seems that waterboarding might be an option soon for anyone who decided to be born of Middle-East decent. The headline says it all:
"Terror profiling without evidence considered in U.S."

No really, please read it. It's disturbing. From what I have seen the only paper interested in printing the story is USA Today. Don't worry if you are too busy to read it, get angry, call a senator or write GW a letter wishing him good ridance . The media ignored the FISA story and they will ignore this one also. Now, if they would only ignore the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh, I forgot. They already do.
