I bet you didn’t know that, if you oppose the government takeover of our American medical system, you’re a Right Wing domestic terrorist. Lucky for you, Obama’s campaign organization, “Organizing for America,” explains who you are, and encourages Obama-bots to fight you on 9/11. The site’s been scrubbed, but everything lives on in cache in this day and age. Oh, for the days when dissent was patriotic and the highest accolade was to speak truth to power.
As for me, I’m dusting off my Right Wing domestic terrorist certificate, and putting it in the same folder as my copy of the Constitution. That’s the same one that Obama swore to uphold.
Looking back, one of the things you can say with absolute certain is that George Bush was a gentleman and would never have allowed an organization under his aegis to insult ordinary Americans in such vile terms.

UPDATE: This story seems like an appropriate companion piece:
A Chinese dissident who tried to organize a national meeting of the banned China Democracy Party has been sentenced to 13 years in jail for subverting state power, his lawyer said Wednesday.
Xie Changfa, 57, was tried in April and sentenced Tuesday by the Changsha Municipal Intermediate Court in southern China’s Hunan province, his lawyer Ma Gangquan said in a telephone interview. He plans to appeal, Ma said.
China allows a small number of officially recognized alternative parties, although they serve as advisers rather than competitors to the ruling Communist Party.
Founded by dissidents in mid-1998, the China Democracy Party was quashed six months later by the Communist Party. Dozens of founding members were arrested and sentenced to up to 13 years in prison, most on charges of subverting state power.
“The charges and judgment both say his crime relates to work he did to establish the party’s Hunan chapter and to his efforts to organize a national party meeting, but we have maintained all along that such activities are not crimes but in fact are the constitutional rights of all Chinese citizens,” said Ma.
