Read em and weep. I'll copy snippets here cause it's a blog and will sink away:<br><br>[color:blue]"On 1 March 07, I was scheduled to fly on American Airlines to Newark, NJ, to attend an academic conference at Princeton University, designed to focus on my latest scholarly book, Constitutional Democracy, published by Johns Hopkins University Press this past Thanksgiving."<br><br>"When I tried to use the curb-side check in at the Sunport, I was denied a boarding pass because I was on the Terrorist Watch list. I was instructed to go inside and talk to a clerk. At this point, I should note that I am not only the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence (emeritus) but also a retired Marine colonel. I fought in the Korean War as a young lieutenant, was wounded, and decorated for heroism. I remained a professional soldier for more than five years and then accepted a commission as a reserve office, serving for an additional 19 years."<br><br>"I presented my credentials from the Marine Corps to a very polite clerk for American Airlines. One of the two people to whom I talked asked a question and offered a frightening comment: "Have you been in any peace marches? We ban a lot of people from flying because of that." I explained that I had not so marched but had, in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution. "That'll do it," the man said. "</font color=blue><br><br>The writer is Walter Murphy, whose credentials he gives in what he says.<br><br>

So much for the jerks that call ME paranoid. <br><br>I was at a Peace Rally (Veterans For Peace) just this weekend.<br>It was at a memorial service dedicating the chapter to my friend of 35 years<br>He just passed in October.... I'm currently working on a webpage for his wife,<br>(my OTHER bestest GIRLfriend.... the one caught in NYC following BOTH WTC incidents)<br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>[color:white]. . </font color=white>

Niiiiice! We need to reclaim and reestablish our USA before it's gone forever. That is exactly why the Patriot Act (what a misnomer!) needs to be sundowned or completely repealed and the bush abomination, all of them, need to be arrested, charged, tried, convicted and sent to Gitmo indefinitely. Of course, we could use their rules and skip directly to Gitmo.<br><br>
<br>I keep hoping that we're going after Gonzales<br>so we have solid grounds to begin overturning<br>a lot of the BS laws & signing statements and<br>questionable loopholes that the loser opened <br>up for the Pin Head to jump through.<br><br><br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>[color:white]. . </font color=white>
