A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

My Way News: "A federal appeals court ruled Thursday for the first time that prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba should have access to lawyers and the American court system."

So these people have paid taxes and exercised their responsibility to the American legal, social, and economic system? To what end will humanistic socialism go?

Then, if a man has the right to take money out of one man's pocket because the first man is hungry, in need of medical care or a good education, or lacking in self esteem, why should we complain when aliens "have a right" to American justice. Of course it is irrelevant, I suppose, that these people were in a war to overthrow that American system of justice, society, and economics. Only an American judge could see any sense in this decision.
