"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Mr. Holland Shows Jaws at National Press Club

Actor Richard Dreyfuss told a National Press Club audience in Washington, D.C "there are causes worth fighting for," and one of those is the impeachment of President George W. Bush. "Unless you are willing to accept torture as part of a normal American political lexicon, unless you are willing to accept that leaving the Geneva Convention is fine and dandy, if you accept the expansion of wiretapping as business as usual, the only way to express this now is to embrace the difficult and perhaps embarrassing process of impeachment." Dreyfuss has as much proof of these allegations as Kofi Annan, neither of whom have ever visited Guantanamo Bay. Noting that the country’s “founders, who we revere to check executive abuse with congressional balance,” established the process Dreyfuss said impeachment "is a statement that we refuse to endorse bad behavior." How does one check abuse with something quite unbalanced? A little correction for Mr. Dreyfuss. The Constitution deals with the subject of impeachment and conviction at six places. The scope of the power is set out in Article II, Section 4: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." It seems alleged bad behavior based on conjecture and innuendo are not considered crimes. Dreyfuss said he is not a cynic or a liberal, but is instead a "libo-conservo-middle-of-the-roado, [say what?] and I have been for many years." Hmmm. So put that in your pot and smoke it! "Watch me lose my sense of humor if people accuse me of treason," Dreyfuss said. He went on to mock Fox’s Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. We tend to mock those two also. However, it seems Dreyfuss has already lost his sense of humor. He is not treasonous, simply a left-wing, paranoid, nut case. To restore true American values, the actor called for children to be taught "the tools of debate and dissent," as well as a return to the principle of civility, which he called "the oxygen that democracies require else they become poisoned and die, as this democracy will." We wonder how long Mr. Dreyfuss had his oxygen turned off?
We can only wonder if Dreyfuss had dinner afterwards with Alex Baldwin, Barbara Streisand, Cindy Sheehan, Howard Dean, Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Teddy Kennedy and Harry Reid (Mayor of Mustang Ranch) and a host of other moon-bats who make it a habit by demonstrating they are bigger asses than the 4-legged breed.
It's hard to tell who's acting and who's serious.
