Tax reform proposals to be secret for 50 years
Taking a page from the Obama (“our rationale for killing US citizens has to remain secret so the terrorists can’t take advantage of it”) playbook now the Senate is going to keep its public deliberations secret. Maybe the pendulum is about to start swinging back (I have read some bloggers (here for instance) that think that this Snowden thing is the trigger for the return), but I am not so sure. I was pretty sure that Bush Jr. was going to declare Marshall Law to keep himself in office a while longer and was a wee bit surprised when he allowed the normal transition of power to take place. However, given my predilections to think that Obama is the Antichrist (and here for why the right might back him), I am starting to wonder if he will be the one to do it instead. He has done nothing but shred our Constitution since he took office (and it was pretty damn tattered after Cheney was done with it!), why not got that extra step and install himself as dictator? After all, it is trivial to argue that the Congress is not acting in the best interests of our nation, I imagine he could get a lot of popular support for declaring Congress Null and Void (not that they are likely to object much, heck, they might go ahead and vote him in as dictator! Not that much different from the powers they have already given him). I (re)developed these suspicions when I heard about his recent speech where he blamed everything on Congress. Funny thing is, anything that is related to defense or security has full bipartisan support, so the ‘obstruction’ there is only in the minds of a few liberals that still believe the Kool-Aid that Obama fed them back in the primaries of his first election.
