Texas Senator John Cornyn just doesn't know where to begin-or end!
In 2003, he sponsored S.887. Obscure? Yes. It would have imposed a retroactive tax on lawyers who made money suing tobacco companies.
Now that you know, you're not surprised, as it is well known that the neocons and tobacco companies are very close. But, take another look. Some of these were the same lawyers seeking justice for the victims of 9/11 and their families.
Cornyn wanted to make it impossible for this to happen! S.887 was soundly defeated, but it says a lot about Cornyn that he even tried to do this!
Of course, the record really speaks for itself when it comes to what the Bush Administration did about terrorism! A war in Iraq, based on lies. A war in Afghanistan. No idea where bin Laden might be. The price? One of the worst economic crises in history. Somehow we think Cornyn isn't worrying about foreclosure!
What's Cornyn up to now? The Internet Safety Act, that's what. It would require massive retention of records. You know, Son of Patriot Act. All in the best neocon tradition of erasing liberties and creating a totalitarian state.
Can't Texas do better than this?
Remember the Alamo!
