Eggplant's Urgency

(Link in picture here)

Those who surrender freedom for security deserve neither.
Benjamin Franklin

Our idiot in chief is alleging that if we don't grant telecommunication companies total immunity from any litigation regarding illegal wiretapping, we're all going to die. Plenty of discussion regarding the reality of the situation is online. The American Civil Liberties Union has some remarks.

Eggplant continues, "Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make Sept. 11 pale by comparison."

Eggplant just loves fear. Having zero leadership, fear mongering is the means to maintain control. For a taste of leadership, consider JFK during the moment this nation came the closest to the brink, the Cuban Missile Crisis. If Eggplant had been in office then, game over. Quoting the vegetable, "At this moment, somewhere in the world terrorists are planning new attacks on our country."

The reader can find plenty of content. This post calls attention to the fact that the RNC is running television advertisements about it to apply pressure on Congress to give him his way. I won't repeat what has been posted profusely, but the spat is about skirting accountability and denying citizens civil liberties specified in the constitution. It is about power, not security.

UPDATE: I was talking on the phone (mathematician friend in Kansas), so the sound was turned down, but one of these ads came on the television. It was not the ad above, but had the same content. Then the ad zeroed in on Congresswoman Giffords, with her photograph, phone number, clearly asking viewers to pressure her to approve Eggplant's request.

Have you seen this clip outlining the overlap between terror alerts and "Eggplant" political agendas?
