Proof That the System Works

Listen up all you pinko commies and hippies.  And you members of the militia and the tea party.  Bleeding heart Democrats and Republicans. You know who you are.  You're the ones who think this country can't be trusted to get it right all the time.  You think we may not always act fairly or justly.  You think due process sometimes goes by the wayside.
You didn't trust Bush.  Now you don't trust Obama.  (Or you trusted one but not the other.  Hey, you're evil either way.)  They were our Presidents.  They're in charge.  And they know what they're doing.  To keep us safe.  From people like you.
You who Occupy Wall Street.  Or Harlem.  Or Idaho.
Well now we've got the damn proof.  So shut up, all of you.
The United States Court of Appeals For the District of Columbia Circuit's opinion today in Abdul Latif v. Obama shows just how wrong you are.
Open.  Clear.  For everyone to understand.
Let there be no mistake.
Abdul Latif v. Obama
Now grow up.

  1. I might have nominated this for best blog post of the year, if I was still allowed over "there."
