Don't Tattle On The EPA - The King Doesn't Like It
Now one might wonder what statute allows Bu$hCo to circumvent the whistle-blower laws. Well the Secretary of Labor's Administrative Review Board has made a ruling that cites an unpublished opinion from the Attorney General's Office of Legal Counsel. Interestingly, that opinion invokes the ancient doctrine of sovereign immunity--the old English legal maxim that "The King Can Do No Wrong." So now...not only does Bush get to act like a king (and a rotten one at that) but the Attorney General's office is laying the legal groundwork for him to rule like one.
Federal employees had better watch out. The next time somebody runs afoul of Bu$hCo policy the President may call for that person's head, and the Attorney General will be right there to swing the axe. 'Divine right of kings,' you know.
as far as baby bush...he can act like a king but he still smells like a skunk
and that smell is filtering thru every house and business in the united states
What gets me is the audacity of citing 'the king can do no wrong' in a legal opinion. What f*cking country does Alberto Gonzales think he's in? This sort of nonsense should be shouted from the rooftops exactly as you phrased it Lew.
AZG, bit isn't it surprising how many people are still able to ignore what's going on.
Bush Reveals Secret War on Terror, Movement of Suspects
No! Really?! Say it isn't so! Oh wait, you're the Faux News Wanker. Figures.
Oh, don't act dumb...it's all there in invisible-and-white 1-point-font in the footnotes of page 19, 074!
The odd thing is, nearly every jurisdiction compels by the law reporting the commission of a crime.
Except where they punish that reporting under another law.
Cartledge, I sort of agree. I don't think this can really hold up for exactly the reason you specify...the fact that reporting a crime is required in most jurisdictions.
WS...that's an outstanding idea! I think we should call it the "Bush-blower Project".
