our government just told us to shut up

this made me so mad i actually just gave money (i can't really spare) to MoveOn.
the senate just passed a lame resolution against the political action group for criticizing Gen. Petraius and the war effort.

how can this be justified? how is this the mark of a democracy? what does this mean for any kind of future criticism against the state?

whatever your political party, a move like this from our government should make us bristle.
at least.

i know, it's pretty stupid, i can't believe it, and yet i can.

it would be nice to be able to ask the candidates what they think about fascism and what role they think the citizenry play in upholding the idea of democracy and accountability.

i'm stunned that the democrats couldn't block this lame resolution. how toothless are they??
