"Alice in Texasland"

New Yorker, Obama: A Second Bite | Rational Philosophy

The 60s revisited (or “recivided”) had an adage about “white people go to the White House and black people go to jail”. I found the NY Times in 1903 said that the prison on the Commons, now City Hall Park, was “…blacker than any Black Hole of Calcutta” in the American Revolution in NYC, investigating human burials there. Today, “the President has the power to arrest U.S. citizens and legal residents inside the U.S., and imprison them indefinitely in a military prison, without charging them with any crime, based on his assertion that the imprisoned individual is an “enemy combatant.” What’s the difference between the occupying British and the current administration? A sorry state of affairs, almost “Alice in Texasland” in comparison to the historical facts that formed the nation.
