    The ACLU doesn't give a damn what you think of them. They don't take positions just to make themselves look middle of the road, or whatever. Think whatever you want of them, just base it on reality, not the lies and distortions and incomplete picture you here about them on the interwebz.

    I'll bet you agree with them more often than you realize. If you don't, fine. I don't care and they don't care.

    yeah, Here is the real ugly face of the ACLU:


    OpEdNews - Article: The Next Civil War is About to Begin


    name calling, trash talking, cry baby progressives that wish the destruction of this nation as it exists now.

    The author is not a leader or spokesman for the ACLU. Nor does this article contain any discussion of ACLU positions as far as I can tell.

    The fact that you would think this is the least bit relevant proves my suspicions about your ability to separate relevant fact from worthless, pointless, or inaccurate information.

    If you want to know what they ACLU really thinks and does, it's very easy to find out at www.aclu.org.

    The ACLU has been good on this issue, provided that they stay that way:

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    DO NOT lose the larger perspective either, let's look at the split on the High Court. It has been held that a President's legacy includes nominated Supreme Court Justice decisions. This one is landmark. Massive. Many observers had predicted Bush's legacy would improve and grow by the day. They now expotentially grow by the hour.

    And you are exactly correct Supreme Court. And now.....Exxon.......GM.......all carbon burning industries...gear up. We choose candidates in two to three months, the Congressional elections are this November, and then stand by...it's on in 2012. Obama collected a war chest of monumental and unprecedented mass, his defeat will cost some bucks. And now we know exactly where to go for it.

    Thank you Sammy Alito. Scalia and Thomas, you are the backbone of the Supreme Court. Justice Roberts....the oh so young Chief Justice proves his merit and shows why Bush put him there. And Tony Kennedy...not always my favorite....you are the man. You are exactly dead on balls accurate here, your lesson in rule of law staggering and eye popping.....and a dagger to Democrat chances in November. The Dems already fuming plan immediate Congressional action, they've just been rolled in Massachusetts, Obama looks like he needs another vacation.

    But vacations are over. It's on. The Bush legacy denied by many causing tsunamis to this day and as we roll into 2010 elections for the fate of Obama's Presidency. Gotta go, Exxon's calling.
    You seem to forget that President Bush oversaw (and partially subsidized) the worse financial meltdown in recent history and took us into a war with bad intelligence and no plan for the subsequent occupation.

    That is just your fascist opinion. In the real world, individuals have a right to speak on behalf of whatever group, idea, movement, or interest they please. The fact that it displeases you is of little consequence.
