Another BGO - it's all leading to martial law

in another blinding-glimpse-of-the-obvious, why-is-my-forehead-
so-flat-it's-because-i-keep-saying-"duh"-and-smacking-it moment, patriot daily brings me crashing down into reality: bushco is slyly laying the groundwork for giving the president the power to declare martial law in response to natural disasters... let's be real... it won't be only natural disasters... he wants broad powers to do as he pleases, when he pleases, without interference from those pesky constitutional protections... the pattern is clear... he's been heading that way since 9/11 and katrina is just the push he needed...

as american citizens, we consistently underestimate the guile, opportunism and danger presented by bushco... i'm not a natural-born conspiracy theorist but given the not-so-terrible track record of federal responses to other disasters, is it in the realm of remotest possibility that the federal response to katrina was DELIBERATELY DELAYED...? DANGER, DANGER, WILL ROBINSON...
