I also read a recent interview in which Antonin Scalia says he thinks torture is probably ok. Unfortunately, Scalia is still a Supreme Court Justice for LIFE.

Great, just great. Unfortunately, we just voted most of those guys into office last winter.

This kind of stuff is in the news every single day. Incidently, I stumbled across an article that discussed the 14 characteristics of Fascism. The parallels with the current state of the U.S. is uncanny.
