never a dull moment

When the hell are we going tobe able to relax again? every day it's something else, illegal war, patriot act, torture, drilling in wildlife refuges, psycho judges, levels of corruption that would embarrass the mob, etc ., etc.... Now it's taking away our fundamental right to due process, and don't give me that shit that it's only for "suspected terrorists", not only do the accused have a right to their day in court, but whatever we let the state do to others they'll do to us. Geez...... and here I thought Lindsay Graham was one of the (semi) normal ones. (should have known better)
The Senate voted Thursday to bar suspected terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, from challenging their captivity in federal courts, a move that seeks to reverse a landmark Supreme Court decision and heightens the debate about what to do with prisoners captured in the war on terror.

By a 49-42 vote that broke largely along party lines, the Senate adopted an amendment proposed by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on the defense authorization bill that would strip prisoners at Guantanamo of their right to file habeas corpus petitions in federal courts. Five Democrats voted with the majority, while four Republicans opposed the amendment. Seven Republicans and two Democrats didn't vote.
Go here, and complain.
