Due Process Is Dead

"Notes from Underground" has a post (unfortunately, without a direct link; here is a related one) about the official sanction of nonpersons in America, and how it's now considered okay to torture people.  Unless you consider that pesky Constitution thing an impediment.

Dear Mr. President: Please remove your cranium from your lower intestinal tract and stop asking the Supreme Court to commit treason and war crimes.  Unlike your predecessor, you have actually READ the Constitution.  You might want to review it.  And maybe pull down some Afro-American history too, on the topic of declaring human beings to be nonpersons legally and what a bad idea that is.  Of course it looks tempting from your current seat, but check out the list of other  people who believe that sort of thing is acceptable; that's not company you want to be keeping.
