Certain Alienable Rights

One of the few aspects of their predecessor's legacy which the Trumpster and his hydrophobic head-tribble have not sought to vandalise is, unsurprisingly enough, the continued existence of the Guantánamo Bay prison camp. Used by Obama's chimpanzee predecessor as a human landfill for selected detritus of the War Agin Turr, the site doubtless holds some sentimental value for Obama's baboon successor as one more place where brown people can be arbitrarily kept from their families. Nevertheless, the forces of liberal snowflakery continue to undermine democracy with appeals to, of all things, laws instead of men: eleven inmates are to be allowed to submit a petition of habeas corpus to the Washington district court. In defence of America's greatness, the petitioners will not be allowed to hear the arguments at their hearing because the prison lacks a room large enough to chain them all up as required by local health and safety regulations.

    I lol'ed at your last sentence, Philip. I am a minor local planning bureaucrat, so this hit home!

    Planning is, of course, the enemy of Freedomâ„¢ because it imposes suffocating communistic restraints on enterprise, entrepreneuriality and the Artists of the Deal. Once we start treating towns and cities as though they were prairie, and undesirable elements as though they were bison or Apaches, Anglo-America will truly be on its way back to greatness.
