u.s. supreme court justice antonin scalia said to a law school audience, "you are 'kidding yourself' if you think that wwii style internment camps will never happen again." he said this in response to a question posed about the wwii internment of japanese civilians (many u.s. citizens), which was approved in the korematsu case before a contemporary u.s. supreme court. the majority opinion in korematsu was penned by non other than the great civil libertarian william o. douglas. (an early day leftist, to put the matter squarely on the table.)
it should be noted that scalia has never been known as a great admirer of b. "insane" obama, the pretender who illegally occupies the white house. scalia reminded people of the old roman/latin observation, "in times of war the laws fall silent." leges silent in bello, attributed to cicero.
i have reminded you that in my little town of milton freewater, oregon the local national guard armory has undergone a major renovation, and about two blocks away, some scab land immediately adjacent to an old rail head has been purchased and cleared, but no improvements done to it, as of yet.
am i paranoid?
is antonin scalia paranoid? well, he "lives" closer to obama than i do, that's for sure. in that vein, maybe we could "get the skinny" from louis farrakhan & bill ayers, who have obama's ear. they'd tell us.
