Bush can bypass torture ban

The Boston Globe reports that the "signing statement" issued by George W. Bush after signing the bill outlawing the torture of detainees contains caveats that indicate that the restrictions in the law can be bypassed in situations where he sees fit.

Bush seems to be under the impression that executive powers granted to him as president allow him to violate any law he deems inconvenient.

It's high time for this corrupt, dishonest president to be impeached.

I was chatting on the phone with my Russian friend Anton this morning and I couldn't help but wonder if the conversation was being listened to. We joked that this is the new U.S.S.R., now - United States Soviet Republic.

Impeachment is too good a thing for Bush. I vote for hot tar and feathers.
