Mourn the Republic

This country was founded on slavery and were one to conduct a poll in certain regions, would doubtless still endorse human bondage, just as it now has endorsed torture and degradation as fit and proper treatment of other human beings. And the people backing these measures dare call themselves Christians--'do unto others as you would have them do unto you"--dare to call themselves defenders of the rule of law, dare to lecture anyone about right and wrong. The Dog says, Fuck them all. The representatives who voted for this torture bill and evey member of the Senate--because none undertook a filibuster--have dragged this country into the foetid cesspool of history.
