Yeah I like that whole "pose a risk of". How exactly can that be determined and how is it even remotely legal to prosecute someone for "future crimes".
****, even in Minority Report they at least had those precog people who could actually see the future.

"I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order blocking property of persons determined to have committed __________________ an act or acts of violence that have the purpose or effect of threatening the peace or stability of Iraq or the Government of Iraq or undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people."
But, when you consider this part I omitted, or to pose a significant risk of, this is worrisome and could be abused very readily.

If treasonous speech was illegal then John Murtha, Michael Moore, Obama, Edwards, Gore and just about every other democrat besides Leberman would be down vacationing in Gitmo.

Dude, you are one seriously ****ed up ombre if you don't see a problem with using the words "pose a risk of" in a legal document. "Pose a risk of" doesn't mean attempt, buddy boy. It means someone thinks they might do something sometime in the future. No timeline has to be given even according to this document. To top it off, only 1 guy has to make the call and he doesn't have to answer to anyone. So there doesn't have to be a reason at all.
This isn't about right and left. Wake the **** up, kiddo. This is about an executive order that we'd expect to see in the USSR not the USA.

and what can we do about this? nothing.
i can absolutely see how protesting the war makes a person a target of this order. this is truly scary

What's really really ****ed up about this is, complaining about Haliburton in any way can make you a target:
"pose a significant risk of... undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction"
Since Haliburton has all those contracts, if you do anything to hurt that company they can say you are undermining the efforts to promote economic reconstruction in Iraq.

No court of law would side with an attack on free speech, and no president is stupid enough to even attempt to attack free speech. (Some democrats are attempting though with the "fairness" doctrine.)
In today's age of radically anti Bush, anti executive power media if someone was actually abused the media would parade them around for the next 3 years.

But jomi, that's the way it is with the radical right, if you shift too far from their system of beliefs, you are either on drugs (preferably smoking something), a nutcase, nutjob (the term "nut" is such a powerful arguement that it may adorned with any number of suffixes). A tinfoil hat wearer, drinking Kool-Aid (whether the implication is the Kool-Aid contains drugs or cyanide, I'm not sure), a pinko, an America-Hater. This list is not exhaustive. Facts are secondary or minor considerations.

or the other...TERRORIST. I think CNorris likes to use both of these together while trying to make some point about how evil these people (liberls or those who believe differently than him) are. From what i gather from his pontifications, liberals are more of a threat to this country than al qaeda. I guess since I can be considered a liberal i am therefor 'threatening the peace or stability of Iraq or the Government of Iraq or undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq or to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people'. Should I be expecting a visit from the spetsnaz or SS, CNorris?

Get it through your head: Most Americans don't necessarily hate or fear the government as you've eluded to countless times. They are fed-up with, and completely distrust, this administration.. But then again, you wouldn't have your "America-Haters"" talking point if you didn't make the former assumption.
