The supreme court decision giving inmates of Guantanamo prison the right to challenge their detention in American court room is the correct one. One might argue that this decision will undermine America’s ability to fight the war on terror but the fact is that by being in Guantanamo they inmates were already on American territory so they do have the right to American court room.

They are foreigners,terrorist and thugs. why this right? Well again Guantanamo is American territory because America is paying the lease in order to use it. The bush administration tried to used the circumstances and the fact they are foreigners to justify their detection and refused to allow access to American court room. But i will state this fact for you,this is not the first time foreigners have been given the opportunity to defend themselves in American court rooms. Second fact,almost all of these people granted the right to American court rooms which by the way have been going on for years were foreign terrorist thugs who killed people for a living, so by saying these inmates at “Gitmo” cannot use it is a double standard.

The Supreme court decision,the correct one again because the bush administration cannot pick and choose which laws they want to follow. Many of us will not agree on this but many people didn’t agree with Brown vs. board of education, roe vs. wade and many other decisions that have shaped this country. We need to look at the issues objectively and without the cockeye.

In times of crisis the constitution still have to be followed. If you give up your freedoms in the name of security, you will get neither.

    When i think of tomorrow i wonder about the world to come. Not of another world, but not one that we envisioned. The effects of

the celebrity culture, the gun culture, the drug culture, the narcissistic culture and yes our culture of mediocrity. This country is a great country in terms of ideals, technology, democracy,

opportunities etc.There is no where else many of us would want to be. But our children are failing miserably in math and sciences, children who are driven to learn and succeed are called nerds.

They are called nerds by idiots who would later slip into the abyss of people  just “trying to get by.” We have shipped almost all our manufacturing jobs overseas to China, India, Vietnam etc.

All we have left are service jobs and a few in technology “in house”outsourcing.jpg.   Will there be a tomorrow where our children can safely say, I’m going to work now pops? That is not a reality since children

today are more interested in the now. The now as in not being prepared, enjoying life and whatever happens will happen. Our obsessions will Paris

Hilton, Britney Spears and other celebrities have totally made us brain dead zombies. See link–>http://perezhilton.com/2008-03-27-throwing-punches , http://perezhilton.com/2008-03-20-skewering-spears and  http://www.frankwbaker.com/kids_media_celebrity.htm.

We are so brain dead that we are being invaded by “Latinos”. In 2080, will our children speak English? probably not. We are so brain dead that white

people now call each other the N-word. If you’nt heard it, that’s great, but this hurtful word have now been desensitised so that whites can now call

other whites such a word. Money grabbing corporations are plundering our morals, our belief in god and doing the right thing all in the name of

making a quick buck. The http://www.nra.org/  and the http://www.aclu.org/  are great organizations, but sometimes i have to wonder whether or not

they have our interest at heart. As an example, the http://www.aclu.org/ fought against a law that makes it illegal for sex offenders to be in certain places where children are located

http://www.wave3.com/global/story.asp?s=6834230&ClientType=Printable and the NRA have fought against attempts to prevent gun ownership by crazy maniacs. Remember Virginia tech? see

link–>http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/04/19/gun.laws/index.html  The only thing the Governor did was closed the loop hole to prevent gun ownership by non-citizens.  My children are crying,

they are scared they will never grow up to be successful unless they show some skin, make a porn video and then get famously arrested with “special treatment.” My children are crying because

social security will not exist for them since everyone do not pay their fair share. I look into their eyes and i cry also. I have failed them, we have failed them, America failed us.
