Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the independent from Connecticut, suggested legislation that would strip Americans of their citizenship — and the constitutional rights that come with that — if they become involved in terrorism. Speaking on Fox, Mr. Lieberman noted that existing law stripped citizenship from Americans fighting for enemy militaries.
“It’s time for us to look at whether we want to amend that law to apply it to American citizens who choose to become affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations,” he said, “whether they should not also be deprived automatically of their citizenship, and therefore be deprived of rights that come with that citizenship when they are apprehended and charged with a terrorist act.”
I'm sure that Joe isn't alone on this. Republicans have been promoting unlimited executive power for a while. It's not even surprising to see this come out of Joe, but has there ever been a more morally depraved, opportunistic member of the Senate?
Ah, that's why the crazy computer personality that took over in that one Red Dwarf episode was named Queeg. Always wondered about his name. Ain't seen no smeggin' Caine Mutiny, but I likes me some Red Dwarf.
