Hiding behind the ’speech or debate’ clause of the Constitution creates a safe haven for criminal behavior. Who thinks that was the intention of the founding fathers?
Big victory, if not symbolic, for the far left. From the land of Bernie Sanders ‘voters in two Vermont towns approved measures Tuesday calling for the indictment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for what they consider violations of the Constitution.’
More symbolic than anything, the items sought to have police arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro or to extradite them for prosecution elsewhere — if they’re not impeached first.
In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012-1,795. In Marlboro, which held a town meeting on the issue, it was 43-25 with three abstentions.
The question put to voters in Brattleboro referred to “crimes against our Constitution” but did not specify the allegations.

And qualifying for the most ridiculous item of the day. Is it real or is it memorex? What the heck is this about? Taking implants to a whole (no pun intended) new level among Muslim women, and at taxpayers’ expense to boot! There’s so much wrong with this.
Taxpayers funded 24 hymen replacement operations between 2005 and 2006, official figures revealed.
And increasing numbers of women are paying up to £4,000 in private clinics for the procedure apparently under pressure from future spouses or in-laws who believe they should be virgins on their wedding night.
“I love you just the way you are,” Billy Joel lyric. No, scratch that. The popularity of the operation is said to be the result of social regression caused by Islamic fundamentalism. Virgins seem to play a major role in Islam from martyrdom to marriage.
