Behind on Reading Once Again

I'll try to catch up tomorrow. I took another Saturday off for fun (see granny if you're interested) and foolish things like housekeeping and cooking keep getting in the way of the important stuff like reading 20 newspapers and 15 blogs. Sunday, the world could have ended and I might never have known.


Anyhow, this may be it for the day from me but some people can say in a few words what it might take me half a page or more.


Once again from Chicago Sun-Times Quick Takes - Thanks Zay.


All fun and games

News Item: President Bush signs bill containing McCain anti-torture amendment.

News Item: President Bush quietly issues signing statement saying he has the authority to ignore the amendment.

News Item: President Bush signs Patriot Act renewal.

News Item: President Bush quietly issues signing statement saying he has the authority to ignore the Patriot Act's oversight rules.

In other words: Nyah. Fingers were crossed.

It may be time for Congress to call no crossies.

Be patient. We may be governed someday by grownups again.

    As I have read, a previous president set a precedent with signing statements, but according to some legal experts, the president's signed statement that he doesn't agree with the law is not binding. If that is true, our Congress is allowing him to get away with one more illegal action.
