    GUANTANAMO BAY PRISON: BREAKING NEWS




    STILL LOOKING FOR THAT MISSING BILL OF RIGHTS!

    THOUGHT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND PIECES OF IT DOWN HERE AT GUANTANAMO, BUT NO ONE ON THE STAFF HAD EVER HEARD OF A “BILL OF RIGHTS.”


    THAT IS TRUE OF MANY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES IT SEEMS: “BILL OF RIGHTS? SORRY, NEVER HEARD OF IT!”

    GOT THROWN IN THE SLAMMER HERE FOR A FEW DAYS JUST FOR ASKING THE QUESTION!

    NO MIRANDA ACT, NO NOTHING, JUST A CELL WITH NO CELL PHONE I HASTEN TO ADD.



    FROM WHAT I CAN TELL, OUR BILL OF RIGHTS BECAME A THING OF THE PAST AFTER 911.


    BETWEEN THE PATRIOT ACT AND THE NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT, WHEN IT COMES TO THE BILL OF RIGHTS, WE'RE TOAST, PEOPLE!

    MAYBE THIS FOURTH OF JULY WE CAN HAVE A NATIONAL WAKE UP PARTY AND GET TO WORK GETTING OUR BASIC RIGHTS BACK.

    WE COULD HAVE LITTLE INDEPENDENCE DAY MEET UPS, WATCH VIDEOS LIKE “UNCONSTITUTIONAL” (SEE BELOW) AND TALK ABOUT OLD FASHIONED THINGS LIKE FREEDOM, LIBERTY, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

    HEY, IT’S NOT TOO LATE! OUR BILL OF RIGHTS IS OUT THERE SOMEWHERE, AND I INTEND TO FIND IT.

    STAY FREE! STAY COOL! STAY CONSTITUTIONAL!

    GREAT VIDEO DOCUMENTARY FOR JULY 4, 2012:

    The most excellent video documentary Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties clearly depicts the rapid erosion and loss of civil liberties and civil rights in the U.S. since 9/11. Available for free viewing this empowering video presents interviews with ranking members of Congress, top legal experts, and even a former CIA chief, all of whom describe many insidious efforts to take away privacy and freedoms guaranteed under the constitution for over 200 years. Compelling video footage depicts U.S. citizens—from law-abiding store clerks to a U.S. Olympian—who have suffered serious injustices as the result of unconstitutional policies established under the Patriot Act.
    Even more astounding, members of Congress describe on camera the replacement of the previously agreed upon Patriot Act by another version quietly slipped into its place just hours before the final vote in Congress, leaving no one time to read the many devastating changes inserted at the last moment. Here is solid, verifiable evidence showing the serious, often-hidden erosion of the very foundation of the United States. Call your friends together to watch this engaging 60-minute video documentary and join in the growing movement to uphold democracy and the U.S. Constitution.
