…President Obama restated, reaffirmed, and re-swore the Oath of Office today, showing far more regard for both the letter and the spirit of our Constitution than his predecessor did, you know, the one who appointed the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who flubbed the Oath in the first place, along with ignoring needs for search warrants before wiretapping or habeas corpus requirements before throwing American citizens in prisons where Presidentially-approved torture was perpetrated.
Am I bitter and angry about how the last eight years have gone?
Yes, just a bit. I love my country, and I am very angry and saddened that the spirit of our fundamental laws was ignored in the name of “keeping America safe”.
What is the worth of safety if you destroy your values in the process?
