Beware the Flat Earth

Barack Obama broke his campaign promise to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. By any reasoned measure, Gitmo is like a black hole sucking the last grains of moral high ground the US had vis-a-vis human rights -- into distant, telescopic oblivion.

Democratic principles in the US are no longer visible with the naked eye.

The US is still mired in two inexcusable wars & now, inexplicably, the President finds himself sucked into mulling over a NATO-led Libya no-fly-zone.

Obama is the new Republican.
Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
~Pete Townshend
How much further right does the US have to slide on regressive, wing-nut jizz before falling off a flat earth?
