America was founded on the principle that it is right to sacrifice blood for liberty. It is telling that the Bush defenders make precisely the opposite argument, that it is right to sacrifice liberty in order to avoid the shedding of American blood. In this they are, like the Dear Leader, avowedly anti-American.

That George Bush is in open and repeated violation of his oath to uphold and defend the Constitution is no longer debatable. In keeping with his many anti-constitutional actions, he has publicly declared that he has no way of knowing what is, and what is not constitutional.

This attitude, while hardly unique in Washington, should be absolutely anathema to every American of all political stripes. And it appears that Americans are increasingly turning away from the president in rightful disgust. A recent poll here on WorldNetDaily showed that 45 percent of WND readers -- who tend to lean strongly Republican -- believe that George Bush deserves to be impeached.

"The day that independent hackers are closed down from playing with their machines is the day we shut down a huge avenue of exploration that historically has created much of our technological innovations," [Neuros Technology CEO Joe] Born said. "Innovation and invention aren't the domain of big institutions -- if you disallow people from hacking, it will be a big loss for everybody."
