7/11    You want a felony to impeach Bush for?  Here ya go:
        http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/015273.php
        \_ dubya will say this is for a "proper" purpose (stemming from
           executive privilege), therefore there is no felony because this
           is defined for an "improper purpose".  anyways you want
           to impeach cheney first.
           \_ You can't just say "I'm not showing up, executive privilege."
              You have to honor the supeona and then say "I won't answer that
              question, executive privilege."  It's like refusing to even
              o to court because you'll take the 5th.
        \_ At this point, it is like the Gambino family: what aren't they
           guilty of?
           \_ Not guilty of intern sucking dick. THERE I gotcha! Har har
        \_ Get real.  No President is going to get impeached for that.  But
           you could get rich off whatever you're smoking.  Of all the things
           to impeach over that is the most stupid possible.
        \_ Again, this is a separation of powers issue.
           \_ Do you mean "everyone has to obey the law but us" kind of
              seperation of powers? Or are you trying to say something else
              by repeating this phrase? I assume you are the same guy who
              claimed that Bush didn't have to follow the FISA laws like
              everyone else, because of "seperation of powers." Seperation
              of powers doesn't mean that the White House can ignore the
              law of the land.
              \_ No, I mean to what degree does one branch of gov't have the
                 power to tell another branch to do something.
                 \_ You don't quite know what separation of powers is, do you?
                 \_ that's the whole point of having different branches of
                    government.
                 \_ Thinking about this some more, I decided that I see your
                    point. The FISA law, in particular, was designed to only
                    apply to the Exectutive Branch, and while it was passed
                    by Congress and signed by the (then) President, it has
                    not survived any serious court challanges. It could even
                    be unconstitutional, for all we know. Though the
                    Administration sure hasn't been quick to try and get
                    it in front of the USSC, I can see where they can argue
                    that they think parts of it are invalid.
                    \_ You have made a reasonable statement about a hot button
                       political issue on the motd.  For this gross violation
                       of etiquette your account shall be terminated.

2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in

11/8    Have you read how Bush says his pro-life stance was influenced

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.

Invoking a privilege is one thing, but telling a person not to show up in response to a subpoena -- if only to actually invoke the privilege -- is quite another. It's not just worse, it's a felony under federal criminal law. the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress ...
