the Death of an idea called “America”

Our spirit is dead, our nation is demoralized, all we have left is the noise of libertarian and liberal activists that is drowned out by authority.

(CBS/AP) Eighty people were arrested at the Supreme Court Friday in a protest calling for the shutdown of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Demonstrators wearing orange jump suits intended to simulate prison garb were arrested inside and outside the building. “Shut it down,” protesters chanted as others kneeled on the plaza in front of the court. They were charged with violating an ordinance that prohibits demonstrations of any kind on court grounds. Those arrested inside the building also were charged under a provision that makes it a crime to give “a harangue or oration” in the Supreme Court building. The maximum penalty is 60 days in jail, a fine or both.

The Supreme Court is now doing the bidding of the Bush Administration with the right-wing court fix in play. You can read the article about the 80 protesters who were arrested for exercising their right to free speech outside of the ‘wrong’ federal building.

    It was not the wrong building. We are demanding this nation officially charge the 275 prisoners currently held at the Guantanamo concentration camp, and try them in U.S. courts. We are also demanding this nation uphold its own ban on “cruel and unusual” punishment as enshrined within the Constitution’s 8th Amendment, and restore the judicial concept of Habeas corpus which has been the practice for more than 500 years.
