Bush announces “Constitution update” committee
“The President today announced the formation of a special task force to determine how the Constitution could be “streamlined and modernized” to protect citizens from “the increasing possibility of terrorism”.
Sure to come under scrutiny are troublesome areas dealing with freedom of speech and assembly; which, according to a advisor close to Mr. Bush, are “sloppily written, too broad in scope, handcuff the police, and allow the evildoers to escape.”
While some may deem this to be controversial, the advisor continued; “we also need to seriously examine whether trials are always neccessary once a person has been arrested, especially if we claim national security interests and do not divulge why they were arrested or where we are holding them.”
And you aren’t sure this is satire, are you?
Why does Bush push to silence free speech?.
