A little story about a raid based on the USA PATRIOT Act. It’s an enlightening (I just can’t stop using that word today) piece about where the Fourth Amendment is today.

CNN lists the Middle East road map highlights for us. It sounds an awful lot like every previous agreement, framework, or accord. Oslo, anyone?

Meanwhile, in the real world, things are less rosy.

Further proof, if any was needed, that both sides of the political debate in this country seem to feel it unneccesary to actually use reason or logic or the issues themselves in any discussion. Just throw around insults, that will certainly convince others of the rightness of your logic. Apparently, I’m a slobbering idiot. Yeah, ok.

For more examples, see Michael Moore on the left and Dr. Laura on the right.

I’m not liberal or conservative – I find both sides to be filled with self-important assholes. Ideologues of any type are frightening, as they tend not to think and just regurgitate what agitators with more intelligence have created. Buzzwords and slogans are wonderful things; they allow the intellectually inferior to have a voice. Unfortunately, they are so obvious in their inability to think or speak rationally that they grow tiresome.

And, enlightening people is against the wishes of all ideologues – they just want people to agree with them, not to come to an understanding of an opposing (or merely different) viewpoint.
