Post #17

Dear USA,

I'm not usually very political, at least not overtly about our President and our System, but I just thought you should know that we have recently passed into legislation a bill which grants dictator powers to our President during "Catastrophic Emergencies" defined as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions". As I recall, Caesar was given similiar powers in order to save the republic. Hopefully Bush (or whoever) will be able to save our republic in times of catastrophic emergency, just like Caesar saved his.

No joke, read the link.

No comments? So much for my revolution, I guess. Nobody reads this anyway...

We're so fucked. But what else is new? Cynicism and distraction will be the downfall of our pretty little Rome.

I still read your blog, jerk.
Did you read the post I wrote solely about this site a few weeks ago?

Sorry to say I laughed when I first saw this article -- I thought it was something out of the Onion.

But who am I kidding? This is from the same person who referred to himself as "the commander guy."
