excerpt:
"I don't blame this on Ashcroft at all," says David B. Smith, who serves on the Money Laundering Task Force of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). When it comes to their populist causes many Democrats, Smith says, "have no appreciation for civil liberties, and they consistently are on the side of the government, more so than the most conservative Republicans in the House and the Senate." And money laundering, Smith and others note, is a populist issue that such Democrats use to bash business and "the rich."


The Republicans are working to dismantle civil liberties under the aegis of "Homeland Security" and punsihing sinners and miscreants. The Democrats do it under the guise of compassionate aid to the poor and the oppressed. Puritanical Police State or Theraputic Nanny State? Either way, you get to piss in a cup on command. Would you like your tracking devise implanted subdermally or do you prefer the sexy new belly-button ring model?

May your case worker administer your life with wisdom and understanding.

Hail Caesar, baby!
Would that be the "Tough on Crime" Ceasar or the "Saving You From Yourself" Ceasar?
