My DD214

Veterans should be a thing of the past.

Robert Steinback puts it all into perspective

This is one of the best columns I’ve read in years; you guys HAVE to read this.

Fear destroys what bin Laden could not, by Miami Herald columnist Robert Steinback.

President Bush recently confirmed that he has authorized wiretaps against U.S. citizens on at least 30 occasions and said he’ll continue doing it. His justification? He, as president — or is that king? — has a right to disregard any law, constitutional tenet or congressional mandate to protect the American people.

Is that America’s highest goal — preventing another terrorist attack? Are there no principles of law and liberty more important than this? Who would have remembered Patrick Henry had he written, “What’s wrong with giving up a little liberty if it protects me from death?”

Bravo, Mr Steinbeck. We should send this guy an honorary DD214.
