Rule of law, not rule of mob or of fear

Dear Senator Boxer,
I don't know what your position is on the Gitmo detainees being brought to the US for trial but I would like to express mine.

We want this to be a country ruled by law, not by the mob. When I heard Senator Reid say "no detainees will enter the US" I was shocked and extremely disappointed. The only fair way to close the Gitmo chapter of our history is to do the right thing, get them tried in real courts and either released or imprisoned in this country.

I fail to understand what the fear is for bringing them into the country? We have equally dangerous people in our prisons already. We have terrorists already in our prisons (unibomber & McVey to name two). If we can't imprison properly 200 from gitmo, we have bigger problems.

Obama is being forced by the Senate to follow the failed path of G Bush because of this. Please help change this course back to the rule of law. The rule of fear and the mob doesn't work.

Quickly! Hide behind self-righteousness! The ad hominem rejoinders—ready the ad hominem rejoinders! Watch out! Dodge the issue at hand! Question its character and keep moving haphazardly from one flawed point to the next!

All together now! Put every bit of secondhand conjecture into it you've got!"

Modern day Isaacs

Modern day Isaacs:
"Colleen Hauser has flown the coop. She has defied a court order to bring her sick son, Daniel Hauser, to a qualified doctor for essential medical care. The boy has Hodgkins lymphoma, a disease with a very good prognosis if treated soon, but is a painful death sentence within a few years if neglected. His mother, though, is fervently religious, and no doubt smug in her righteousness, has bundled her son into a car and is devoutly driving to Mt. Moriah. I hope she's not expecting an angel of the lord to appear and spare her son."
"You are Abraham's enablers. I hope you all feel a small tremor of guilt when you sit your own children down at bedtime to beg a nonexistent being for aid, when you plant the seed of futile supplication and surrender to delusions in their trusting minds. Damn you all."

Yes. Damn them all.

Also damn the California voters who voted against Props 1A through 1E. Now we're screwed. I hope Arnold lets thousands of prisoners out, lets So Cal and Nor Cal burn this summer, and the passes over 80 and 50 don't get plowed next winter. Not to mention the millions of kids getting crappier education. Some Jarvis anti-tax ass said "when households lose 1/3 their income, the HBO goes before the food". So Jarvis ass-wipe, what is California's HBO? What are you going to cut?

And damn the US Senate for its Not-In-My-Back-Yard (NIMBY) for the gitmo prisoners, I've got to find out if either of my senators voted against funding to close Gitmo to prevent them coming to CA. I can't believe it. WTF!?! What are they afraid of? They will be in prison! Worse people are in our country now in our prisons! Just because they weren't born here they shouldn't be in our prisons? I guess we should just let them go home. That is the only choice if the NIMBY attitude is continues.

Proof that there is no god : Pharyngula

"Jenny McCarthy, dangerous quack and ignorant fraud, has just signed a contract with that professional peddler of pablum, Oprah Winfrey, to put on a syndicated talk show, among other media puffery. It's quite a step up. Oprah only spreads a kind of fuzzy mind-rot, but McCarthy actually promotes death and disease."
